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 […]
Today Saturday 24th is a significant day for bloggers as we are all coming together as a community to spend some time and send positive thoughts into the universe to heal Kerry aka Multiple Mummy #Healing4Kerry who was struck down this summer and is struggling to get back up, Liska, New Mummy Online is […]
It’s all Pudsey this weekend and what a fabulous total raised last night, I hope you managed to link up with our Pudsey page with your posts. First and foremost an enormous welcome to the lovely Kelly Innes aka Domestic Goddesque who will be hunting you all down to include in her brilliant Good […]
Hello one and all, So children all back to school and life should be returning to normal right? Wrong, this week has been my busiest yet and I’m still running as I run into the weekend with a wedding on Saturday and a family gathering on Sunday at mine for about 12 people. As […]
I’m late! Yesterday I was at a fabulous event in London with the Aunt Bessie team and you should see the products they have coming out, frozen gravy ready in minutes! They had me and another 6 bloggers cooking meals for under a pound and a roast chicken meal too, a really lovely day. […]
Hello, hello, how are you all? Isn’t it amazing the difference a week can make in your life? If I think back to this time last week I was very sad. I wrote about not sharing everything that happens in your life on your blog because it can backfire on you. Can you remember? I’d […]
Do you find it cathartic to write down your thoughts on paper (laptop)? I do, it kind of helps me get them straight. It helps me see where I may be going wrong. To see what, if anything, needs changing and can even show me the way forward sometimes. Sometimes from these ramblings I wonder […]
The autumn really is here now after this week’s rain, wind and overall dreariness but did you catch our coffee break hangout? Hangouts are pretty new on the social media scene but once you get the hang of them they’re a lot of fun. We’re still on a learning curve but we’re inviting you […]
I have had a glass of Shiraz Grenache 2008 – Australian if you’re wondering. Actually that’s a lie, I may have had two and it’s 14.5% so be warned as I’m preparing this post in advance. The wine is delicious and it’s warming me but that is not what this post is about even if […]
How’s your week been? Mine has been frustrating. I forgot to take the twins to their gymnastics class on Tuesday. It only dawned on me when my partner walked in from work and asked why we were back so early. On Wednesday morning we had a 10.30 appointment with the girls new teacher, a home […]
Help! I’m late. I always, always, always prepare #MBPW on a Friday and schedule it so I can start my weekend thought free but I woke this morning to the realisation that I had forgotten! That makes me very annoyed with myself and I go around chiding myself ‘How could you forget? You were […]
Thumbs up for the weekend and it’s an extra long one with the added Bank Holiday Monday this week – yoohoo, let’s just hope the weather plays ball. Just a note – this time next week we’ll be officially in September, where did all that time go? All parents are on countdown for the […]
Yay, it’s Saturday again and aren’t we doing well in the ‘Lympics? Last time I looked we were 4th in the medal parade and going great guns. Well done Team GB. I did my own bit of Olympic support this week when I spent an evening at the P&G Global Family Home based at the […]
My first week of the summer holidays and I’ve never been so busy! I’m quite puffed out in all honesty and looking forward to a weekend at Butlins Bognor Regis as part of the Butlins Ambassador programme. I have every finger and toe crossed that the sun keeps in shining for us but even if […]
Have you heard the news? We’re going to have some sunshine! Yippee and about time too! Can somebody move that jetstream north for good please? I can’t remember a summer so wet. Lots of people are off on their summer holidays this weekend and if you have a journey to make with children in the […]
Yay, another weekend is here and fingers crossed we may all see some sunshine too. I don’t know about you but the past two weeks for me have been truley hectic and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to slow down any time soon either. Add to that we have School holidays upon us and […]
