Bank Holiday with Morrisons

    Last week, as the Bank Holiday approached, the supermarket, Morrisons, very kindly gave lots (and lots) of bloggers £80 in vouchers to spend in-store, and asked them to blog about their experience as part of a #MorrisonsMum campaign.   I’d missed the email from BritMums (who were organising the blogger outreach) but noticed […]

Should Bloggers Work for Free?

    So there I was, happily pottering away on my laptop, totally not Googling ‘Katie Price divorces again’, feeling nice and calm after having had a lovely facial this morning.  And then I got an email from a PR company that was representing a major brand.  And by major, I mean a MASSIVE brand.

Why Are Men Scared of Strong Women?

  As you may have gathered from my last dating post, the whole ‘falling in love’ thing isn’t going too well.   I went out with a long term friend, who’s in the very same position as I am, to talk about it and see what the dealio was.   We’re both in our 40’s, […]

Disneyland Paris – Should I Stay or Should I Go?

      Easter is over and I’ve hauled myself back to my laptop after a well deserved break.  I certainly didn’t buy another six Crème Eggs today in the post-Easter sale.  No, not me.   Anyway, last week I was lucky enough to be invited on a short press trip in June to a […]

BritMums Live Sponsor

    The annual blogging conference, Britmums, is nearly upon us and for those in the blogging world, you’ll know what a great event it is.   I wasn’t sure whether to go this year or not – I worked for Britmums last year as a room moderator, introducing guest speakers and encouraging questions from […]
