Pouting In ‘Diggerland’ – (Because diggers aren’t just for boys)

I’LL be honest, I’m not really a fan per se of diggers. But, this isn’t about me because Elsie LOVES them. Like seriously loves them. Every time we drive by one on a motorway or come across one on our travels, her little face beams with joy as she shouts: “Look, Mummy, a digger!” So you can imagine her utter delight when we decided to pay nearby Diggerland Yorkshire a little

Why her and not me?! Why is another woman’s success such a bitter pill to swallow?

THIS is the question too many women ask themselves far too often. And not in the healthy, “hmmmm, I wonder why?…” pondering kind of way. But in the, “I’m jealous, disgruntled, hate-her-guts kind of way.” We’ve all done it and I’ll be the first to hold my hand up and say yeeeees, I’ve made this mistake on occasion in the past. But why do we do it? Why is it so

‘CRU’-ising through life with my wonder bag

SEQUINNED, embellished, vintage, metallic or leather – you name it, when it comes to bags I’ve owned them all. Apart from, the perfect day to day bag, that is. A bag which isn’t showy but simple and elegant. A bag that will let me get on with my busy life, easily. Something that is understated, beautifully made and does the job. Carrying my items from a to b safely and

All About You – Shoot The Moon!

POWERFUL that, isn’t it? These words by Anne Lamott – which I came across and shared last week for my new #wisdominheels project – have lingered around in my thoughts since I read them. They have stayed there, locked into my consciousness, stubborn, persistent and loud. A reminder to grab life with both your hands and live boldly. Indeed, to live fearlessly. I’ve always been a bit of a ‘feisty

Soooo, I did a spot of healthy baking…

I’M on a real health kick at the moment. Which basically means I’m cutting out of the c**p that I’ve been eating recently – you know too much white bread, biscuits and chocolate etc – and paying much more attention to my diet. Since Easter Monday, I’ve been eating well, eating less and moderating my booze intake and whatdoyaknow, but I feel a million times better already. I’ll be honest,

How to have a GREAT family holiday (with little stress)

I’VE got real wanderlust at the moment. Now the sun is shining here in the UK, my thoughts over the past week or so have naturally turned to travel and holidays. We’ve yet to decide where to jet off to this summer, but I’m personally daydreaming about culture, great weather, fabulous food and a relaxing place, where we can all take a break from modern life and enjoy some much

Why are you hiding? The world needs you!

  SOMETIMES I get so nervous about stuff, that I try and find any excuse not to do something that I know I really should be doing. That I know will be good for me. That I know will take me to new exciting places. In the end, I ignore the excuses – push them off a imaginatory cliff – and I get on with it. Why? Because the alternative

My Child Has Been Diagnosed with Hearing Loss. What Next?

If you have recently discovered that your child has hearing loss, it’s important to get the facts about what lies ahead as soon as possible. Quick and effective intervention is usually the basis of successful treatment, but different causes of hearing loss require very different care plans. Thankfully, there are many options available for children with partial hearing loss, and some of them have the potential to completely reverse the
