All About You – Patience

THIS week I’m delighted to be co-hosting the All About You link up, with my gorgeous buddy Zaz and fellow fabulous blogger Sarah.

Musings on friendship

I USED to think that female friendships would always involve some element of jealousy and competition. I used to think that girls and women could never really be friends. I used to think that women were bitchy and that girls were catty. I used to think that being mates with my fellow sex would always be problematic.

How a feathery lampshade made me realise that I need to be more daring…

IT’S true. I’m honestly not kidding. This weekend I had an epiphany. A light bulb moment. And it was all down to one feathery lampshade and a harmless weekend trip to B&Q. To give you the background, my husband and I bought a house a year or so ago and it needs lots of work. It’s potential is staggering but there is much to do. We have made progress though.

SASS: My mug. In new shots.

Well, well, well my lovers. It’s been a while! You may have been wondering what I’ve been up to in my absence and the truth is a hell of a lot. As many of you will understand, presently there are just not enough hours in the day. But beyond the madness of work, motherhood and celebrating many a birthday over the last month (more of that later) I did find the
