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 […]
My Best Post of the Week RSS feed for this section
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 […]
That’s it, summer is nearly over and I am packing my bags and returning to the UK to get ready for the Back to School time of year. I hope you all had a wonderful summer I’m sure you must have written something about it so please add your My Best Post of The Week […]
As I explained last week I am currently on holiday and (hopefully as I writing and scheduling this post in advance) having a fantastic time but for those of you who have returned or stayca’ed this year then then please find the BritMums #MBPW below to add your favourite writing from the past week to. […]
My timelines across social media are full of people on their holidays and it’s so lovely to see them having fun but frustrating whilst you’re sitting at home still waiting for your holiday date to arrive. Well that for us is today! We’re off to France for a fortnight and I can’t wait to spend […]
Ohhhh, we have a storm on the way and for some reason I’m a little bit excited about that. Fortunately it’s been downgraded from a hurricane and I hope no damage is done over the country but it will shake up the system a bit and my garden needs watering! It has been so dry […]
I must apologise. I completely, totally and utterly forgot to do My Best Post of the Week last week. There was me saying the previous week that I was going to take it easy and chill out a bit. I was going to spend more time with the children and ‘make memories’ with them but […]
“Let the sunshine in, let the sunshine in, the sunshine…” I imagine all of you that have broken up have been out and about enjoying this fabulous weather this week? We are still at school but we’ve had a great sports day, a fabulous school trip and lots of birthday fun too as the twins […]
My twins will be celebrating their 6th birthday midweek next week, they are extremely excited about it and have been writing ‘Who to invite?’ lists since last October so they are extremely organised. They have been throwing the odd hint of gifts into conversation (basically anything from the Disney Frozen range) and which cake they’d prefer […]
A lot of schools have already broken up for the summer break but if you’re like us, we’re waiting until the 24th July! Ridiculous really when you think continental schools broke up on the 6th June. Still we are enjoying some wonderful weather to accompany the Sports Day, the school trip and the many other exciting […]
What a whirlwind of a brilliant time I just had. Admittedly it’s taken me all week to scramble back to some kind of ‘normality’ but I’m closing the gap people, closing the gap. BritMums Live, tickets are already on sale for next year and I still haven’t fully digested this one. I think my […]
Hello, hello again….WHO is as excited as me? I bet none of you are because I can’t sit still for two minutes without a BritMums Live thought popping into my head. Wowzers guys, are you ready for the best blogging event of the year? Have you decided what to wear? Have you arranged to meet […]
*sharp intake of breath* I missed last week’s #MBPW. I hadn’t planned to miss it, it just happened. We went to Devon over half term and had a wonderful time, we even had a few days of really good weather, however, the signal where we were staying was pathetic to say the least. This seems […]
