Where some are finishing off homework this weekend and ironing the school uniform ready for Monday morning, I am not. We have another week to go and we’re off to sunny Spain to discover a brand new place that none of us have ever been to. That is the perfect holiday in my book. I […]

Sometimes in life you get a really good week, this week has been one of those for me. Yes I have the usual mess indoors, an overflowing inbox to muddle through at some point and a dog who won’t leave my side since he was neutered on Thursday but I got to interview Antonio Banderas in […]
Did you get some snow? We got the tiniest flurry this week in the southern corner which excited my twins immensely, it didn’t prevent dad going to work or shut the school however so or the UK is becoming more organised and can now deal with 1cm of snow or it wasn’t even a centimetre. […]
As weeks go, this one has been a full on, get your act together one for me. I have been battling with my tax return and cannot for the life of me figure out WHY they make the language so complicated on their return forms. I had to copy and paste some questions onto a […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
*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 […]
Hello, hello, come on in. I hope you’ve had a good week, enjoyed the sunshine and the milder temps. I was so pleased to get my washing on the line this week, on the line people! Fluttering in the wind, it’s the small things in life right and this one makes me so happy. The […]
In 1984, I was 18. I’d read the book 1984 by George Orwell as part of my ‘O’ level curriculum, that’s what GCSE’s were called back then and I was curious to see how our world was evolving. Would it ever end up like Big Brother was watching over you 24/7? Maybe not quite on […]
Well that’s it people, as of midnight you can say goodbye to November and we all step in to the Countdown of The Year. There’s no need for me to remind you, you’re going to be bombarded with it on every single medium possible. Can you believe a school local to me forbid their primary […]
Have you ever come so close to wanting something it’s almost within reach? Have you ever desired something with your entire heart, soul and being? That is where I am now and today I am going to unashamedly ask for your help. I entered a competition with the Royal Caribbean, they were looking for a […]
This week was the week I baked my first ever Christmas Cake. Now it’s good to bake your Crimbo cake months in advance so you can mature all the lovely fruit and, more importantly, you can feed it. With Brandy. And Jamaican Rum. And whatever takes your fancy really. By the time I’m cutting into […]
Yay, I’m a grandma – again! Allow me to welcome into the world little Sophie Rose who was born on Sunday 13th just in time for roast dinner, sadly I haven’t seen her or cuddled her yet as she lives in Italy so I am scouring the net for flights that will fit in with […]
One of my major ‘let’s keep positive’ tactics to help me through the daily humdrum of what can at times become a tiresome life is to have something to look forward to; a date in the diary, somewhere to go, a person to meet up with. It doesn’t have to be exceedingly expensive, it doesn’t […]
