My Guilty Pleasures

It seems I’ve accidentally committed to sharing these, after a thoughtless remark on Twitter. I mentioned I’d just had the idea to write a blog post confessing a few guilty pleasures, and a fair few people liked the concept! It’s the type of thing that’s just begging to be made …

Choosing A School

Boo is now 4, so I have just embarked upon the exciting journey of choosing a primary school for her. And I think it needs to be exciting, as this is a huge milestone. Now, I say I’ve just embarked, which means I’ve been to the school I was very …

To Move or Not To Move?

I get restless. I get restless and feel the need for changes. I daydream sometimes about living elsewhere. Always near the sea. I’d love to be able to just jump in the car and pop to the beach with the kids. And I’d imagine I’d have a home like this …

So Happy Together

My children are growing, as children have a habit of doing..! And as they’re growing up, I see them growing closer together. These are photos taken in the past week.. They play together now. We’ve been fortunate that Boo welcomed and adored Little Man from the first day she met …

If I Could Have Just One Room…

If you could have just one room, all to yourself, what would be in it? What colours would you choose? What would it smell like? I’m daydreaming a little. This is my, ‘when we win the lottery…’ room. And so what would it be like? I make no secret of …

#BornToRead

I joined in a Twitter chat last week, in partnership with Save the Children and their Born to Read campaign. It shocked me. It upset me. It stayed with me. I learned that ‘A fifth of 7-year-olds from poorer families are already behind in reading. Most struggle to catch up, …

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas….At John Lewis

I was lucky enough to be invited along to a John Lewis Christmas preview evening recently. A lovely seasonal buyer, Jane, was there talking to us about the themes for this year and some of the gorgeous products that they have ready for us. There were also staff there from …

One Word…

I read a post by the lovely Tara over at Sticky Fingers Blog, where she has summed herself up in just one word. Just one. And then asked other bloggers to share theirs, too. Yes, I’d love to do that, sounds fun. And then I sat here about to write …

A Little One-on-One Time

Boo now goes to pre-school for two days a week, which means that it’s just me and the Little Man for those days. Now, he does like his naps, so I manage to get some work done in the mornings while he sleeps, and then it’s lunchtime and we’re off …

3 Months Blogging

3 months already! This still feels new to me, but then on the other hand, it’s become so ingrained now that I can’t imagine not blogging. I’ve published 94 posts and had over 1100 comments now. I’m continuing to love Twitter and Pinterest, pop over to Facebook, have discovered the …

Boo is 4 Today

My little girl is starting to turn into a big girl. She is 4 today. Fours year ago, she initiated me into the world of motherhood. I’ve learned so much from her and she’s given me so much joy, worries, giggles, frustrations and delights. My life is nothing like it …

All About Me

The fabulous Gina, over at Cold Tea and Smelly Nappies, has tagged me in an All About Me meme. You can read all about it here, and find out more about Gina. The idea is based on the All About Me’s that children are often asked to write when they …
