Calm Is The New Black

    Meeting up with fellow bloggers has become a highlight of my month. It’s normally four or five of us and it’s a great opportunity to put the (blogging) world to rights. And eat all the cake. (Although yet again, I brought shame on my people by bringing...

Upgrade Rage

    I’m due an upgrade on my phone. And you know how I know that? Because a certain third party retailer rang me ninety billion times last week to tell me.   Now I’m normally a calm, rational person. I’m friendly. Heck, I’ve even been known to say to...

A Week of Two Halves

  Hello. I’m back!   You may have seen that I’ve been on a cruise this week. I know, I know … you all hate me. I was there on behalf of Cruise Magazine and my article will appear in one of their upcoming issues. (I’ll also blog about it once it’s been...

A Night With The Bella Twins

    You may have seen this photo (above) on Instagram last week and wondered what the hell I was up to? To confirm, as tough as I find dating, I haven’t resorted to carrying around a cardboard cut-out of a wrestler and pretend he’s my boyfriend. At least not...

Long Tall Sally | Christmas Wishlist

  At 5ft 9”, I’m considered tall for a woman. It used to be something that upset me at school because all the boys were shorter but I remember feeling relief after one summer holiday because at aged 15, finally everyone shot past me and I didn’t feel so out of...

Bonfire Night Safety

  Our family have always been huge fans of Bonfire Night. I’m not really fussed about Halloween, and Easter is fine, but that’s basically because CHOCOLATE … but I LOVE Bonfire Night. It’s a real throwback to my childhood because it’s an event that my...

Be Safe Be Seen Campaign

    Dexter and I went shopping for bikes this week. Nothing whatsoever to do with suddenly being told he’s doing his Cycling Proficiency test next week (as we used to call it) … and him not actually having a bike to do it on.   Talk about panic buying....

James Villa Holidays | COMPETITION

    I was recently asked by James Villa Holidays if I would like to write about my love of books and travel.  Bearing in mind they are the two things I love the most in this world (other than the boys, obv), I jumped at the chance.  It was a good opportunity...

Buzzfeed | My First Dating Post

    I had a list type post running around in my head for the last few days that I was going to post here … a sort of ‘this is what goes through my head when I go on a dating site’ type list.  Instead, and as a bit of a dare by my friend...
