GIFT IDEAS FOR DEVOTED DADS

SOMETIMES when I see my husband with my little girl Elsie, I want to cry. Because as Dads go, let me tell you, he is something else. Kind, patient, loving, funny and totally and utterly devoted, I could not have wished or hoped for a better Dad for my daughter. His love for her is so evident and a total and utter joy to behold. In fact, as corny as

SPONSORED POST: THE FUTURE OF OUR KITCHENS WITH IKEA

  THE other night I was cooking tea with Elsie, teaching her to make lasagne. It was an ordinary moment in our ordinary lives, but yet for a moment or two, I could have almost closed my eyes and gone back in time. To one of the moments when I was cooking with my mum, as a little girl, back in our (then) state of the art eighties kitchen. Some

I HOPE. I HOPE. I HOPE.

I HOPE you know just how brilliant you are. I hope you know that you are loved. I hope you know that your very presence in this world, counts. I hope you know you matter.

FEELING LIKE A LOSER (BUT BEIND OK WITH IT)

  I FELT liked I’d been punched in the stomach on Friday. For about five or ten minutes, I felt short of breath and just absolutely gutted. Because I couldn’t spot my blog name you see. I couldn’t spot Pouting In Heels on a list of blogs that had made the finals for a major blogging award. And I couldn’t spot Pouting In Heels because I hadn’t made it. Boo blinkin’

DO YOU THINK THE UNIVERSE IS TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING?!

  I’M a firm believer in going with your gut when it comes to all matters. Because truly knowing who you are and remaining tuned into your instinct is important, is it not? “Ignore it at your peril!” (As a psychic medium told me last year.) Oh ‘eck! But sometimes, when we get the ol’ wibbles wobbles about stuff, we can lose our instinctive ‘ears’ and our sense of balance. Which

20 THINGS YOU CAN DO ON A ‘NIGHT IN’

Long gone are the heady, exciting days when my weekends were all about going out on ‘the razz’. Now my idea of an exciting night is actually having a night in. (It’s the new ‘going out’ you know!) Tonight I am looking forward to doing exactly that. Curling up on the sofa, with a glass of wine in hand (and the bottle nearby) and relaxing. Ah bliss. It’s true, I

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU’RE FEELING S**T (OR DOWN IN THE DUMPS)

We all go through it. Every single one of us. Times when we’re just feeling rubbish or to be frank, like utter s**t. Sometimes it can be just for a day or two, others time it can last longer. But how on earth do you stop feeling like the smelly stuff and get your self acquainted with a sweeter scent. Well, my friends, it’s a tough process. Because as you’ll

MOTHERHOOD – THE BIGGEST ENDURANCE TEST WE WILL EVER FACE?

  Over three years ago I ‘signed up’ to the greatest test of my life. An endurance test of mammoth proportions. A test that would challenge my body and my mind. A test that would shake me to my core. A test that would make me question everything I thought I knew. What test am I talking about? This one. The test of motherhood. This morning as I sit here,
