CAN WE JUST QUIT WITH THE BULLS**T? (AKA FAKERY)

I DON’T know what’s happened to me over the past few months. But I do know this. No longer can I stand fakery. No longer can I stand the not so sweet smell of bulls**t that seems to linger pretty much everywhere these days. Do you know what I mean?! I’ve talked about it a few times on my blog previously.

A STAY AT THE GREAT VICTORIA HOTEL, BRADFORD

A NIGHT alone? In a hotel? Without little Elsie? Well that’s something of a rare treat for the husband and I, so we were thrilled to be invited to stay at the Great Victoria hotel in Bradford just last month. We had a smashing time. Relaxed lots. Ate lots. Drank lots. And even managed a bit of a lie in too. But enough about what we go up to (although I’ll

LIFE STUFF I STILL NEED TO LEARN AS I TURN 36 (!)

I KNOW nothing. Ok, so maybe not nothing but definitely, very little. If I was an owl, I would be rubbish, because you know they’re supposed to be wise and well, I’m far from that. Yet.

After a rotten few months, this week has been pretty marvellous in comparison and in terms of my work / blogging life, well things couldn’t be lovelier.

IT’S OK TO NOT BE OK (HONESTLY)

IF I asked you today, “how are you feeling?” what would you say? What would your reply be? Would you say “fine thanks” and give me a full beam of a smile? Or say “I’m great? Never been better!” Perhaps you would mean it. Perhaps you’re jumping around with utter joy today. I hope that is the case. Hell, I’d love to think this is the case, for all of you that

A VLOG: ARE YOU DOING THESE TWO THINGS ENOUGH?

HELLO you beauties! It’s been donkeys since I’ve done a vlog and seeing as I’m feeling much chirpier and brighter today after weeks of feeling pretty bloomin’ awful, I thought today I’d have an ol’ dabble with this video malarkey. What’s it all about? Well, just some food for thought really. A couple of questions to ask yourself, two things that are so important but that we often forget when

PREPARING THE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS (WITH JOHN LEWIS)

CHRISTMAS is coming…the goose is getting fat. (Or something like that). But are you ready? And more importantly, is your home ready for the festive onslaught?

I love this time of year – even if it does involve a lot of work – because, well, it’s just magical.
