I CAN feel Elsie’s childhood slipping through my fingers. Really, I can. Those special moments, this special age she’s at, it’s all slipping through my fingers at an alarming rate. I’ve been hanging on, trying to keep up, doing my best to stop them all slipping through, but it’s been a struggle. And recently I’ve had a wake up call.
WHAT do you all think about the hat? Do you wear them? Would you buy one? Are you a fan? I’ve always been a bit of a closet hat lover. I’ve loved them for years, have fawned over vintage ones in shops and gasped at photos of women in bygone times, dressed up to the nines in their dainty pillerbox hats and elegant buttery leather gloves.

It’s as simple as looking after our vaginas (yep, I went there) and making sure they remain healthy and
ONE of my favourite things to do… When I visit a different country or a far flung land, is to eat. Lots. To eat all the local delicacies, to feast on new dishes, to try out new tasty morsels. Yes folks, I am a foodie. And a rather adventurous one too. So when I was kindly sent a food hamper full of treats as part of Expedia’s World On A Plate
