The Eden Sessions with ASUS

  Phew. What a month so far! I feel like today is the first day I’ve stopped to take a breath (and a large Americano with a side of fruit scone.) The last month has seen me jet off to Corsica, win new business (for my day job) in Manchester, drive down to Cornwall for […]

Parenting a tween – pass the gin!

    When it comes to parenting, I like to think that I’m fairly savvy. I’ve managed to raise one child through to adulthood and although we have had our ups and downs on the way, I think the fact that he is a well rounded and, dare I say it, extremely handsome individual, says […]

Moving day at last!

  This weekend has been the most expensive weekend I’ve had this year. If you’re thinking bottles of Moet and a private jet to Paris, you will be sadly very disappointed. As I mentioned earlier this week, I am moving house tomorrow. As in I am actually leaving Dad’s and moving house. Everything is going […]

Spandau Ballet @ Eden Sessions

  Of all the random things I’ve done since becoming a blogger five years ago, this week’s project nears the top of the random list. On Thursday morning, I will be driving down to the Eden Project in Cornwall to watch Spandau Ballet live in concert.   I wasn’t kidding was I?!   As regular […]

#BornToBeBrave with Kingswood Camps

  Phew, what a week. I’m back from BritMums Live and looking forward to what else 2015 has to offer. OK, I’m particularly looking forward to Turkey next month, but there are lots of exciting things afoot!   In the meantime, a company called Kingswood Camps recently got in touch with me to see if […]

A day at Pennyhill Park with Experience Kissimmee

My Monday usually consists of the school run, football kit washing and breakfast by 11am if I’m lucky. Thankfully, yesterday wasn’t a typical Monday.   I had been invited to meet the CEO of Experience Kissimmee. Now, if you’re a Disney fan, Kissimmee might ring a bell with you because it is the nearest resort […]

Things I’ve done whilst Dexter has been on holiday

    I talked earlier in the week about how Dexter was on a week long residential with his school, which meant I was child-free for a whole week. Now be honest, I bet you’ve all been dying to know what I’ve been up to haven’t you? Well wonder no more … here’s what has […]

Child-free for a week – what now?

6.50am It’s the big day! We’ve been building up to Dexter going away for a week’s residential to the Isle of Wight with his school for six months now. I’ve been saving like mad and paying off a little bit each week and today’s the day. I’ve woken up early and beat the alarm – […]
