I WOKE up this morning in a foul mood. Like a really foul mood. Also, I’m feeling rubbish. Germs have hit the Portman household which means we’re all under the weather and I have a very grotty, snotty and grumpy toddler on my hands. Oh goodie. So I wasn’t very happy this morning. No sirree. But then I sat down, drank my morning cup of tea and read this post
AS a proud freelance writer /PR and blogger, I always do my best to try and support other small businesses. Why? Well firstly I do it out of solidarity with my fellow self employed comrades and secondly, well, because in my opinion and from personal experience, you just get a much better service from smaller businesses.

(Well you’ve just got to!) And I will be 35. Blimey. I don’t know why (perhaps because this

For FREE. Yes FREE. Who works for free? Do you? Does your partner? Would you like your children to have
ON Saturday night I painted the city red. (Kinda.) As part of early birthday celebrations (my big day is on Friday) I did a night of glamour in Leeds with some of my dearest pals. And I did it in a rather lovely red dress. I take absolutely no credit for finding this amazing dress from Matalan of all places! Nope, it was all the work of a dear Twitter
I’M not quite sure how it’s happened already but it has. Elsie has grown up and so it’s time to move my not-so wee cherub out of her nursery and give her a ‘proper’ bedroom.

LIKE most of us, I absolutely adore jewellery. But in particular, I love jewellery that tells a story, that shares who we are and what we are all about. Don’t get me wrong I love a good piece of costume jewellery as much as anyone else, but it’s the little trinkets that once belonged to my Gran, the pieces of jewellery that my husband has bought for me over the
