If you haven’t noticed by now, I’ve been reminiscing on my year in the mumosphere and I’m feeling incredibly sentimental – in fact, I’m feeling a tad bit generous and want to share some happiness with you all, but how? While I’d love to buy a drink for each and every single of the one […]

I suppose this is a bit of a love letter to all the members of British Mummy Bloggers and also a curtsey and a bow to Susanna – you know who you are! The theme of these posts is what has really happened, and this little adventure was the one that made the blogosphere a […]

Along came January – there was an adjustment period to this new situation. It lasted about a day or so. I was free! And so, so glad to escape the glass towers where I had worked. Once a bustling enterprise, it was haunted by glum, grey, despondent suits wailing over share prices and school fees. […]

I’ve been catching up on the Corduroy Mansions. There’s a lot going on, the pace has quickened, adventures are afoot and some of them leaving bigger footprints than others. Barbara is heading to the country and lashings of clean air but she is having doubts. Does “you are so very welcome to our family” really […]

Why did I turn to blogging? Well, I’ve always loved to write and I’m a total chatterbox so it was pretty easy to find my conversational flow in blogland. And there were many great surprises and new experiences in store. Incredibly, this story I am writing is post number 149 which means over the last […]

I can’t quite believe that it’s just short of two weeks until my blog is a year old. Simply put, it’s been an incredulous and fabulous year. November 29 2008 was the day I clicked ‘publish’ on my first wordpress post. I was amazed I’d even managed to work out how to set up a […]

You know when you watch a reality show like I’m A Celebrity the schadenfreude-effect is like a Class A drug – you just keep having to go back for more. I don’t usually watch any of the shows but this one makes me scream with laughter, it’s totally out there when it comes to pushing […]

I love this photo, I took it at a stop on our drive through the Atlas Mountains, heading to Marrakech. The funny thing is that this must be the most eco-friendly shop in the world – it has no electricity, sells natural products and the carbon foot-print is probably tiny (unless you count the wind […]

Thanks to the Royal Mail strike, my review samples from Simple Human are still sitting in a depot somewhere but the company has kindly sent me an extra 2 of their stackable recycling units. From the photos on their web site which I’ve used above, they looked like they would fit nicely in my Ikea […]

I love this photo – Miniminx running wild in the desert in her pyjamas after a brief sleep. We spent the evening before watching the shooting stars in the amazing night sky. It was so magical and felt so free and peaceful. And of course, we were queens of the desert for just one day […]

I love a film screening, especially when it materialises out of the ether via twitter. Earlier this week Annie Mole, one of my favourite bloggers, posted a link to the invitation so I nabbed a couple of tickets. So off to the Courthouse in Soho I went with a friend last night. I made a […]

Do you love the Beano? Does it bring back memories of your childhood when you used to still get sweets measured and weighed and popped into a little paper bag? There’s always been something great about every magazine that has left the D C Thomson publishing house and made it’s way South. My daughter has […]

Well Freddie de la Hay is not the only barking character in this collection of chapters I’ve just read. They are all nuts. James, he is not so much nutty as he confesses he is unable to get his to work. Berthea believes she should be placing a sign above her door ‘May Contain Nuts’. […]

When we flew to Casablanca, I was caught up in the whole romance of it all. In the back of my mind was the movie; Humphrey, Ingrid, Sam and all those wonderful characters who smoked and drank throughout the black and white block buster. Since we don’t have ‘an airline ticket to romantic places’ anymore […]

There’s a lot to be said for window shopping, especially in the West End. I’m usually agog at Harvey Nichs windows but Selfridges really caught my eye. These Pandas are not just cute, they’re endangered and very limited edition and exclusive, so it’s nice to see some creative campaigning. And also a touch of the […]

I’ve always loved this photo. It’s beautiful, and while it has it’s own story behind it, it’s the one that has made me want to go and experience a country. So you’ll have to forgive me in indulging in a few posts over the coming days. They’ll be about our recent trip. Life will never […]
