PLEASE HELP US #SaveSyriasChildren

CHILDREN are dying. Children are drowning as their parents try to get them to safer shores away from their war-torn homeland. And it has to stop. No beautiful child like Aylan should ever have to lose their life. No beautiful child like Aylan should ever have to be found, washed up dead. Cold and alone on a deserted beach. No beautiful child like Aylan should ever have to suffer in

FIVE QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF ABOUT ANYONE

A FEW weeks ago I wrote a post about walking away from people. From those who make you miserable, treat you shoddily or fill your world with negativity. The post received quite the response (thanks everyone!) and is still attracting comments, even as I type. So today, I thought I’d carry on the ‘walking away’ theme and give us all some food for thought on this sunny Friday. Myself totally

PARADISE ON A GREEK ISLAND: OUR HOLIDAY IN KEFALONIA

BEFORE our plane had even landed in Kefalonia, I had already fallen a little in love with the island. As we came into land, we flew over the most beautiful beaches and turquoise seas, pretty little villages scattered across the hills, all lit up by the most glorious sunshine. And so I knew, before my eager feet had even touched the hot tarmac, that I had found a Greek paradise.

THE LIST #50 (& MY SUMMER)

TODAY I’m co-hosting The List with my good friend Aby for one week only. Stepping in for my buddy Hannah who normally co-hosts as she’s currently on holiday, sunning herself, taking a well deserved break and drinking a Pina Colada or something. (Hopefully.) The idea behind the list is really simple. Blogger pals – all you need to do is link up any post that is in a list format –

HOW ‘WELL’ IS YOUR WELLBEING?

WHY, hello there! How the devil are you all? Are you all having a super Summer holiday? I’m back from taking a little a break away from the blog to enjoy some special time with my family and I have to say getting back to work, isn’t as easy as I thought. My body isn’t quite ready to get back into the swing of things (so to speak) as quickly

WHY I LOVE MY BIKINI BODY (EVEN THOUGH IT’S FAR FROM PERFECT)

TOMORROW afternoon I will be stripping off. And, slipping into an itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikini. Maybe the black one. Possibly the red one. But either way, I will be popping it on and hot footing it to the nearest beach or pool. I haven’t been abroad for about four years so I am ready for the sunshine and the waves, the sand and the breeze, the relaxation and the

MY TOP TEN TECHIE THINGS FOR SUMMER

IT’S official, it is Summer time! (Even though the great British weather may not agree.) The kids are off school, the barbies are being dusted off and if you’re anything like me you’ll currently be in the midst of washing and ironing and packing, as you prepare to go off on holiday. Summer is just brilliant isn’t it? Such a happy time, for children and parents alike. I love Summer! As

WHY IT’S OK TO WALK AWAY (IF YOU HAVE TO)

I HAVE what is known as a three strike rule when it comes to people. And keeping them in my life. It’s not a rule that is set in stone, but it goes a little bit like this… Hurt me once, and I’ll forgive you. Hurt me twice, and I’ll forgive you. But I will consider your behaviour more carefully. Hurt me three times, and I’ll forgive you. But I
