I WAS delighted to be asked to be part of this wonderful book and am even more thrilled to give it my‘Pout of Approval’!
Compiled by writer Charlie Plunkett, 100 Little Words on Parenthood is a fascinating collection of anecdotes, words of wisdom and poems on all aspects of parenthood from the miracle of birth to toddler troubles, embarrassing tantrums to awkward teenagers.
In just 100 words, mums, dads, grandparents and experts share their experiences on parenthood. And me too! Yes folks, I am one of them.
Getting my thoughts down to just 100 words was no easy feat I can tell you, but I’m so glad I shared my relatively new but life changing experience of motherhood because it is such a wonderful book and project to be part of.
The very lovely Charlie has pulled together an incredible collection of ’100 words’ that will appeal to anyone; daunted parents to be, experienced parents, grandparents or even those who may just be thinking of entering the incredible, unfathomable world that is parenthood.
Trust me, if you’re one in of these categories you will love it! Just don’t blame me when the tears start to fall as you read it. ;-)
And oh yeah, if you haven’t got your Mum anything for Mother’s Day yet, this would make an absolutely awesome present.
100 Little Words on Parenthood is available in paperback and for the Kindle.
Till the next time, be happy!
I’m so committed to bringing this amazing online shop to your attention, that I am actually typing this with one hand as I hold my sleeping baby daughter in the other.
Like some of life’s best discoveries, I literally stumbled across Petra Boase by chance as I was busy searching the net last week looking for some nursery inspiration.
Now we’re finally in our new home, I’ve been a busy bee researching and shopping for my little lady’s nursery and so was thrilled when I came across some fabulous ‘Japanese Paper Balloons’ (see bottom left pic below) sold by Petra via ‘Not On The High Street‘. They will be perfect to hang as a mobile in Elsie’s room when the decorating is finished.
The balloons arrived super quick and beautifully packaged. They also pointed me in the direction of Petra’s own online shop petraboase.com, which quite frankly is one of the loveliest sites I’ve had the pleasure of browsing in months.
Petra Boase is a feast of pretty, whimsical and vintage-inspired treasures. From handmade greetings cards to babywear, paper garlands to hair slides, I pretty much fell in love with most, if not all of the items for sale, which is why I just had to give Petra Boase a little mention and award it my ‘Pout Of Approval’.
Many of the items will make perfect gifts for little people however trust me, even as a grown up you’ll be hard pressed not to find something you adore too. I tell you, this shop really is good for your soul.
Till the next time,

LIKE most women I love beautiful dresses. Especially black ones. Versatile and elegant, a little black dress can you take you from day into night with ease and panache. Acclaimed style icon Wallis Simpson wasn’t wrong when she said: “When a little black dress is right, there is nothing else to wear in its place.” So…
