‘Family Fun for Christmas Eve’ – Tesco Living Article

      I was asked to write an article for Tesco Living to talk about what fun activities and crafts you and your children could do on Christmas Eve.  I didn’t think “Eat Quality Street all day” would go down too well, so I managed to think of a few more.   You can […]

‘What I Love About My Body’ – Tesco Living Article

    I was recently asked to contribute to Tesco Living’s new look website and talk about ‘What I love about my body.’   You’d think that would be a tricky article to write.  You’re not wrong.  I sat and looked at my laptop for ages and, probably for the first time ever, gave some […]

Tesco Magazine: Legoland Windsor Resort

(photo credit:  Tesco Magazine) I haven’t been to a theme park since an embarrassing episode at Margate’s Dreamland amusement park in 1982.

We had an absolute riot.  Not literally … I was very (mostly) well behaved, but it certainly was the highlight of 2011 for my family and I. Today, I’m pleased to […]

Tesco Magazine: Christmas Television Picks 2011

(Photo credit:  Tescos Magazine)   I’m a bona fide child of the 70s and growing up with only three TV channels meant Christmas television was a little limited. I had to choose between The Mike Yarwood Show, Only Fools & Horses, Top of the Pops and, unfortunately, the occasional episode of Val Doonican. I’m glad things have moved on […]

The New BritMums Live Speaker!

I’ve been blogging since July 2010.   Six months after WitWitWoo was born, I dipped my toes into the proverbial social media water and joined Twitter.  I say joined … like most people, I’d actually joined two years earlier but just never used it.  (“Twitter?  Wassat?”) I’ve learnt a lot on the way … (I refuse […]
