Last night I tackled a fear (And survived)

LAST night I did something I’ve never done before. As an adult. I spoke. In public. To a group of people. About blogging. I know. Impressive huh?! ;-) I was nervous, I was frightened and I felt a little bit out of my depth. Last time I did any kind of real public speaking was way back at school, and I’m 35 now, so you know, it’s been a while. When

How kind are you? (Like really)

THIS morning I read a piece by one of my favourite bloggers James Altucher. I’ve mentioned many a time how much I love this guy’s work but seriously if you haven’t checked out his phenomenal blog yet (and subscribed) then please do because it is BRILLIANT. And life changing. (And I do not say that lightly.) Anyway. I was reading this particular piece when I came across this line, which

Cooking with Gousto

SOMETIMES the thought of cooking another meal makes me want to scream. You know how it is. It’s been a long day, you’ve had little time to yourself, you’re – to be quite frank – knackered and by the time your little one has settled for the night, it’s almost 8 o’clock and you’re ready to collapse. On days like this, I’m often more than happy to settle for a

Mums, this Sunday, I want you to do one thing…

IT’S Mother’s Day on Sunday. A lovely day. A day to reflect, be appreciative and if you’re a mum, to hopefully receive a little thanks too. Not that we need it of course (that’s so not why we do this job) but it would be rather lovely all the same wouldn’t it? To know that you’re loved. To know that you’re valued. I’m already ‘winning’ at Mother’s Day this year.

WHAT TO DO AS A BLOGGER WHEN YOU HIT A BRICK WALL

EVER feel like your blogging efforts are going unrewarded? Are you sick of spending heaps of time on a post and feeling that no one cares about what you’ve written? Do you look at other bloggers, read other blogs and sometimes feel inadequate, jealous, cheesed off?! Yes? You do?! Brilliant. Then it’s not just me then. *smiles* I’ve been blogging for over three years now and in the main, I

In bloom with fabulous flowers

IF yesterday’s post was a little woe is me, you could say today’s post is WOW is me. Because today I am delighted to talk about one of my favourite things in the entire world. Nope not heels (although they are one of them) but flowers. Fabulous, fresh flowers that make my heart, well, bloom. I just cannot get enough of fresh flowers currently. In fact it’s probably safe to say,

My back pain is becoming a real pain in the neck

I’M grumpy, snappy and incredibly irritable at the moment. So you have my apologies. As does everyone in fact who has to ‘put up’ with me at the minute, because to be quite frank, I’m just not myself right now. All thanks to my beautiful back which just does not want to play ball at the moment or do anything in fact. It’s not very happy you see. Not happy

Six things women can learn from my two year old daughter

THE greatest mentor I have in my life currently is a two year old girl. My two year old girl in fact. Elsie, my beautiful daughter. I always used to think, before I became a Mum, that a parent was the only one to teach in a parent / child relationship. But I was wrong, because amazingly Elsie teaches me as much about life and myself, as I do her.
