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...

Cafe Stories

    I have been coming to my local M&S café for years. It’s where I wrote all my essays for Uni, and it’s where I’ve written a lot of blog posts and creative stories. If you take the time to look close enough, it’s not just a sea of grey-haired anonymous...

Visit Wales | GIVEAWAY

    I have only ever been to Wales twice in my life, which is a pretty poor show really for a UK resident. The first time was when I was married, in my early 20s and the whole family went to visit a distant cousin I think for a big birthday get-together. The...

Living With Dad – An Update

    I have been living with my dad for a month as of today. Boy, time sure does fly when you’re a 44-year-old woman living at her parents’ house.  It’s going as well as can be expected. Dad is trying his best to be very tolerant of our...

The Junior ISA

    I learnt three new things this week.   Seagulls on Brighton Pier are not only the size of actual cars but will eat the doughnut right out of your hand if you let them. Cars don’t last forever and once they’ve done 127,000 miles they may...

Garden Wishlist

    The countdown to moving into my new home continues. And continues. Because, I don’t actually have a date yet, but the countdown continues in my head at least.   As you will have seen from my recent homeware haul, I’m finding some absolute gems for...

How do YOU watch TV?

    I’m not sure if I have already mentioned this on the blog or not, but recently I was debating whether to renew my TV licence or not.  My licence expired two weeks before I left my last house and because they don’t do short-term licences (God bless them),...
