Golly the year has got off at a pace! I’m already cruising towards February and feeling every bit as cold and damp as the weather. I do hope that Christmas brought you all your heart desired. At the very least I hope you and your sanity survived in a better state than our car, which […]

Good Reads December 2013

Poetry and Prose Roundup: The Whole Of The Moon

The five year old says Santa isn’t real. I tell him this is rocky ground – that Father Christmas deals not with those who disbelieve. Elves – sharp of eye and ear – hear and see it all. Walk the walk and talk the talk – or Christmas morning shall be bleak indeed. He back tracks […]

Good Reads: Remembrance, the worst bits of motherhood and who needs family anyway?

Can anyone tell me where this year is going? I couldn’t believe it when the latest Strictly series started because it signalled the beginning of Christmas. Eeek! Anyhow, I won’t hang around banging on about all that I have to do before Christmas, which is a mere six weeks away. Instead, forget about the ‘C’ […]

  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 […]

Reviews Round-up: 10 tips for writing rockin’ reviews

In the past year I have come across quite a few new blogs who have been started by mums to review products only. I have nothing against it, but I know there are some bloggers who don’t like that type of blogs. I personally think people should do what is right for them, and if […]

Politics Round-up; Extraordinary commentators

I am adopting a slightly different approach to this months round-up and taking a closer look at the BiBs shortlist in the commentary category.

  My photography studio has taken a lot of photos at Santas’ Grottos this year — A LOT. I wish I could show you all the photos of crying children that we have accumulated. Quite frankly, they are hilarious (including one of my own daughter on I Carried a Watermelon). I guess parents around the […]

Good Reads: Parenthood, wrapping paper and life changing trips

  It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmaaaaasssss. Aren’t you just a little excited? No? Well, obviously not: there are just days until the schools break up so you need to make the most of your time alone. So forget about Christmas cards and wrapping presents and queuing in the Post Office to pick up a parcel that […]

Review Round-up: Twinkl, Shrek & Disneyland Paris

You might have realised there was no review round-up last month, and the reason behind it? I had to fly to the Czech Republic to be with my family as my dad was at the hospital. Anyway, I am not here to talk about that, but to present you a huge variety of review posts […]
