The votes have been counted and verified and we have a new government. Reactions to this news are definitely mixed, and as such this months round-up is just in list form – I am deliberately avoiding grouping them into ‘sides’, as I am hoping that when push comes to shove, we are all on the […]

For an Easter Monday treat, I have a large selection of travel posts to give you plenty of inspiration for holidays and days out. The majority are based here in the UK and might well provide you with some ideas for places to go with the family during the Easter break. Hope you find something […]
Welcome to this months politics round-up. I am starting with a big shout out to two bloggers who I hugely admire. They have both taken the decision to stand for election as councillors in their local area in May. Their ability to put themselves forward, to find time, to want to make a difference – […]
Good day friends, I hope you are well. I am so pleased we have reached March and it is now officially Spring, we might not yet have those glorious hot days but thankfully the sun is out more, the days are lengthening and the spring flowers are making me smile a lot. This month I […]
It is everywhere at the moment isn’t it? You can’t visit any blog without there being a post reflecting on the year gone by, on the resolutions to be set for the future or what must change in the New Year. It’s to be expected really, most of us have had time off work or […]
The great decline to Christmas has begun now that Halloween is over. The Ads are all over the TV, the Strictly Come Dancing Contestants have been whittled down to the serious contenders, and there is debate on social media about what will be Christmas Number One. As someone who has a birthday at the end […]
Before blogging came along, travellers who wanted to record their experiences would write a diary. It’s how I started my own blog, scribbling in a notebook to remember my family’s holidays. Of course, only those diaries which made it to print would ever be seen by the general public. There must be thousands of personal […]
Patricia Amira, Africa’s answer to Oprah hosted the #AYASummit As I put this months round-up together I’m in Jersey and ready to fall over, I’m so tired and jet-lagged it is unreal. A ferry journey today has not helped but I should not be moaning as my life is incredibly blessed. Last week I was […]
There is a definite chill in the air now and this is a time of the year when talk naturally turns towards illness and health issues as the winter sets in and as always there have been lots of bloggers talking about a variety of health issues this month. Health is of course in the […]
I left you last month with a feeling that Scotland was going to vote Yes. This was purely based on the fact that in my little corner of the blogging world YES was the resounding theme. As you will all know, the answer given by Scotland to the question of independence was NO. I was […]
Last week at church I was listening to a lady speak on new starts and fresh beginnings. She was talking about how September is practically another January and for most of us it is a time to re-evaluate and think about where our priorities lie in the next year ahead. I was a bit taken […]
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 […]
As we hurtle towards 2014 there is still little chance to sit and reflect on 2013 which will, I imagine, be remembered above all else as the year that the World mourned the loss and celebrated the life of Nelson Mandela. There is nevertheless much to be cheerful about, much to be grateful for, much […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
