IT’S TIME TO DECORATE OUR BEDROOM! (FINALLY)

WE’VE been in our house for three years now. And our lovely 1920s house, still needs a lot of work. When we moved in, with Elsie at just six weeks old (yep, totally mad!), it was like an 80s woodchip city. And although we’ve done lots of work on the house already – knocked down walls, put in a new kitchen etc etc – the one room in the house that

FIVE REASONS WE NEED BLOGS (& BLOGGERS)

OVER the past few weeks, I’ve come across some general unpleasantness towards blogs. And more to the point, the people who write them. (Including me) Which has made me feel, well, a little bit sad. I’ve read that blogs are pointless, boring and dull. I’ve heard people say they’re not interested in any blogs, because they’re only written by narcissists (yes, really). And I’ve even come across one blogger who

WHAT MAKES A GOOD MUM?

SOMETIMES being a mum feels like the easiest job in the world. Other days, it’s the hardest, most challenging, frustrating, damn right difficult job I’ve ever had. Or ever will. We’ve all been there haven’t we? No mum is immune from those god awful parenting days. The ones that force you to your knees in the kind of way only motherhood can. Not even the best mums. (Whoever they are) Not

To be honest I’ve been a little overwhelmed by all the kind, lovely comments. However you should all know they came at a time when I absolutely needed them so thank you so much. You made a sad lady a lot happier. And a

THE TALE OF THE UNPLEASANT EMAIL (AND OUR IMPACT ON OTHERS)

I wasn’t going to write a post today. I was going to have a full day off and do very little. You see, I had some very sad news this morning. A friend of mine, the husband of one my closest friends, passed away yesterday after a battle with cancer, and so as I’m feeling more than a little emotional right now, I decided I’d step away from the laptop and

WHY DO WE CARE?…

WHAT people think about us? What they may say behind our back or in the company of others. Why do we care if people like us or not?  Some people will, others won’t. So what’s the big deal? Why do we care if people look at us in the street or when we’re out and about? Surely it’s better to be noticed than to be invisible? Isn’t it? Why do we

SPONSORED POST: LOOK THE BUSINESS WITH M&S

WHEN it comes to smart attire, it’s all about the tailoring. My Dad taught me that years ago – he used to make childrenswear so knows about all clothing and the like – and he’s absolutely spot on. If you want to look smart, groomed and professional, there’s only one thing for it. You have to invest in tailored clothes that fit you perfectly and make you feel incredible. A sharp
