And then a new member entered our family and we became five. No, I haven’t kept a pregnancy from you but at the beginning of the year we registered with Battersea Dogs and Cats Home thinking we’d like to rescue a dog. They warned us that for dogs suitable for children under 8 it could […]
My Best Post of the Week RSS feed for this section
I am immensely pleased with myself as I have ticked off a huge task on my To Do list that’s been there for a few months: Upload a copy of my entire archive of images to an online back up site. It took me forever but it is now complete and I can move on […]
Happy New Year everyone! A blank page and a brand new year to have fun with, what could be more exciting than that? What have you got planned? Did you make any resolutions? I didn’t because I know how I fail sooner or later and then lose motivation for the rest of the year. So […]
It is finally time. Time to put your feet up, indulge on a mince pie or two, crack open a bottle of bubbly and sneak a cheeky mitt into the bursting chocolate box. Christmas is here, well almost. There are still those last minute chores to deal with, picking up the turkey, making sure you […]
I am so in the festive mood right now I could explode into a shower of glitter and fairy dust. We had our school Christmas play this week and it never fails to bring a tear to my eye as I watch my little ones sing, clap and just be so cute. We didn’t get […]
Please make it stop! I have been running around in circles all week technical glitch circles and it’s really doing my head in. Computer says no, my brain says no and I wish, I wish I knew how to put it all right in one swish of a wand. New year’s resolution, to become more […]
That’s all folks, November is out. Gone. Well it will be tomorrow. The madness is really about to pick up speed and make itself known to you so I hope you are ready for it. I made the foolish mistake of booking a hair appointment on Friday, it never occurred to me that it would […]
Most exciting news of the week? The BritMums Christmas Meet-up to be held at the Imperial War Museum on the 4th December. I’m going and I’d love to see you all there too. Mince pies and festive fun all round, a cheerful tune and the shop is open offering us all a discount too. Most […]
I don’t know how many people this week on various social timelines are counting down to Christmas already and I find that scary seeing as my weeks fly by way too quickly. The only thing I am glad about right now is that it is Friday and that means lie in in the morning and […]
Weekend time again, yoohoo, and I’ve been trying to keep up with the #SnapHappyBritMums this month having seen we were mentioned in the Daily Telegraph no less. I love Instagram and at the moment it is one of my favourite communities as it’s all about inspiration and creativity. The more I dig in the more […]
My week has been very Halloween orientated, pumpkins, monsters, Hotel Transylvania and dressing up. It’s been exhausting and I still (Friday afternoon) have to carve the pumpkins although I’m hoping I’ll get away with just one to be honest. Half term saw us visit the Tower of London to see the poppies and get caught […]
My feet do not touch the ground anymore, the world and his wife have woken up and everyone seems to be knocking on my door. Busy does not cover it but along with busy I should add happy – apart from the cough that is. Second course of antibiotics and if they don’t work x-ray […]
This week has been a super busy one for me, London trips twice, products to review, more turning up on the doorstep I shall be glad to sit down this weekend, oh no I can’t I’m off to London again on Saturday. I mustn’t complain though as I have had a relatively easy start to […]
If I was a robot I’d be driving my master insane. I am acting perfectly normally and for the most part getting everything done on time, kids to school, after school activities attended, on time, with uniform and smiling kids – not bad but there’s a little something that’s not quite right. It’s as if […]
One thing I love about the blogging community is we are all intelligent and opinionated people who aren’t afraid to say what we think. This is great, we all love debate and even opposite thoughts to our own can work in such a way that they allow us to contemplate what others are thinking and […]
I’m a Star Baker, I’m a Star Baker. I’ve been taking part in Mummy Mishaps Great Bloggers Bake Off and for the European Cakes challenge last week I produced, with these fair hands, a Sacher torte just like we used to love eating in Italy (I lived on the boarder of Sud Tirol) It was […]
Some weeks are good and others are bad and as this one goes it’s been pretty much middle of the road, I still feel like I have one foot firmly in Summer holiday mode and I can’t quite get my enthusiasm back yet to throw myself into work again as I know it’s a long […]
I always find I hit September running as fast as I can with so many things to prepare and organise no matter how much preparation I put in place to try and avoid it, do you? Return from the holidays, bags to empty, wash, clean, put away, school uniform to label, book bags to find and […]
