Blogger’s Block

    I’ve tried to write a blog post for weeks now. No big announcement or anything, but just to write something. Anything. But every time I try, the words haven’t quite made it from my head through to my fingers. I have procrastinated like mad –...

Tween Life

    Dexter is 11 next week. I know this because not only did I give birth to him, so I’m pretty sure I’ll always remember the date, but in the three months running up to his birthday, Dexter is always there to remind me. Every. Single. Day.   I kid you...

Signs I’m Turning Into My Nan

    “The evolutionary phase of Nanadom” … that’s how my friend Claire described my life this morning. And the annoying thing is, she’s totally right. I’ll try and explain. (That’s my lovely Nan Florence above by the way.)   Let’s just use this...

House Update & Dining Room Wishlist

    It’s been six days since I heard the bad news about my house falling through. You may be forgiven for thinking that I would wallow in a ball of self-pity and gin, but only one of those is true. (Mmmm … gin.) Instead, I arranged to see a house the very...

Sunday at the Seaside

      Sunday morning is normally pretty hectic in our house – mainly with football shenanigans. However, as the season has finished for us now (THANK GOD), today was the second Sunday this year that I have had a lie-in. Except … as I’m...

The House Fell Through

    On a scale of 1 to 10 of bad news I could have received today, I think we definitely hit an 8.5 today. Thankfully, no-one has died (a definite 10 on the scale I’d say) and I have no husband to divorce, but the next most stressful thing in life,...

Shopping When You’re Plus Size

      See that picture above? That was me, yesterday, trying to find something to wear for tomorrow’s Blogon conference. As you can see, it wasn’t the most successful trip. This blouse was a size 20 so that I could try and fit the girls in,...

Staying In – The New Going Out

    After yesterday’s blog post about approaching middle age and the boring things I’ve done this week, my best friend text me and asked WTF regarding the car boot organiser. In fact, I think her exact words were “Are you 87?”   We...

Boring Things I’ve Done This Week

    There I was, minding my own business in the M&S café (again), thumbing through the Home catalogue, when I had a sudden realisation. I had just got an actual boner over a saucepan with a copper bottom. Not only that, I took a photo of it and put it on...

Brighton in April

    You may have seen me nip off to Brighton at the end of the Easter holidays so I thought I’d let you know what we got up to. Or, if you’d prefer, you can watch the video I made HERE.   Brighton is one of my happy places. It’s where I chose to...
