Happy Birthday Grandad…

MY Grandad would have been 100 years old today, so this is a very special post  in his memory.  Although I’m afraid my words will not do him the justice that he deserves (he was incredibly well read and a truly beautiful writer), I just wanted to share with you all, a little bit of information about my Grandad, William Charles Foster, a truly, wonderful man. Unfortunately I never got

FOR all those who are trying for a baby or perhaps thinking about trying sometime soon, this post is especially for you.

A review: Giraffe Restaurant

Here’s a foodie review I wrote recently for the popular e-zine – The Modern Girl’s Guide ( also featured in Bethanie Lunn’s Meadowhall Style Weekly)   NAMING a restaurant after an animal is pretty unusual, but then the new Giraffe restaurant at Meadowhall certainly isn’t one that follows the norm! Situated upstairs in the recently transformed Oasis Dining Quarter, on arrival the restaurant impresses with it’s polished, contemporary appearance, open space

So, when ARE you going to have a baby?…

AS a woman in my early thirties, I have lost count of the amount of times I have been asked this question over the years. Safe to say it’s probably in the hundreds. It seems that once you’re in a committed relationship of some description – or in some cases, even if you’re not – everyone wants to know when you’re going to have a baby and if you’re married,
