How glorious has the weather been these past few weeks? What a wonderful start to the kid’s school summer holidays. Even though we have had a few thunderstorms, overall the weather has been lovely hasn’t it, meaning lots of fun in the great outdoors. The park, the beach, the countryside or even the city, being […]
I suspect most of you who read this are parents and we are now just on the cusp of the summer holidays. Talking to friends I find that parents react in one of two ways, firstly the ‘Agghh, how will I get it all done before the holidays start?’ and then ‘What will I do […]
The weather has been lovely down here in my corner of sunny Essex. It really lifts the spirit to open the bedroom curtains in the morning to birds singing and sunshine streaming through the window. Summer inspires me to get out and about more, to lose that extra winter weight and to get healthy which […]
What a funny month May is, it feels like we have only just finished the Easter holidays and here we are with another couple of bank holidays thrown in for good measure. Even better for me is that my kids have an inset and polling day so I get loads of family time this month. […]
I just can’t believe how fast these months are flying by. We are in April already, the daffodils and hyacinths are dying off as they make way for roses and geraniums. I can’t wait for the summer to arrive, to potter in my garden while the radio plays, the hens forage and the kids play. […]
Happy spring fellow BritMums. I’m so happy to be able to write that, I find the good weather makes such a difference, even the most miserable of people have a smile on their face once the sun starts to appear. This month I want to share with you some blogs that are really inspiring me […]
We have managed to get through the first month of the year, we have made our new year resolutions, set our goals for the next twelve months and beat the January blues, but Oh Boy hasn’t it been cold! The early appearence of snowdrops popping up everywhere with the promise of warmer days ahead has […]
Well here we are just a few days into the New Year and I’m feeling really positive for the future. Luckily I have an optimist outlook on life and I find there is always something to be grateful for. This year I feel I am going on a journey, I’m not sure of all the […]
I love everything about this time of year… the tinsel, the baubles, the presents, the wrapping, the food, the telly and even the cheesy Christmas movies that are on 24/7, but most of all I love the magic of it all. Blogosphere is full of Christmas Inspiration and here are a few of my favourites. […]
I’ve got a little confession to make…. I totally forgot about this until our lovely editor Mari came chasing me up yesterday. I know that life is good for me right now as I rarely forget anything, I’m always the queen of organised but just recently I have been so busy just getting out […]
I’m really thrilled to have been asked by Michelle to job share her monthly round ups for the Positively Inspirational Round-up’s. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading through so many inspirational posts over the past few months and I’m looking forward to my new role. October seems to have all of a sudden crept up on […]
I’m really pleased to be here writing this positively inspirational round-up again this month. You have probably noticed that the lovely Emma from Mama Syder has held the fort wonderfully for the last three months whilst I moved house and got myself sorted out. I’m pleased to report we are now settled in our new […]
What a scorching few weeks we have had, here in the UK. Some days have even been a little too hot for me, but I’m not complaining as it is very nice to have a decent summer for a change. The warm weather inspires me as ideas for the garden race around my head. New […]
July is one of my favourite months of the year. I feel inspired by everything I see as I walk around town. Suddenly front gardens appear to be bursting into bloom, and even the neglected areas appear to be lush and thriving. The scent of Elderflower and roses fill the air, BBQ coals are burning, […]
