Isn’t travel great – it broadens the mind, challenges the palate and gives life new meanings and for me and my daughter, in more way than one. We’ve just returned from France. Learning to speak like a local has been part of the journey, well, supposedly it has. In fact, it’s been more of a […]

I’m adding this photo to the Gallery this week because it’s a picture I took of the spitting, snarling camels that we rode across the Sahara last year. They’re funny creatures; they rock you into a mesmerised state as you plod across the desert. You can see for miles and miles and after a while […]

I’m really looking forward to Cybermummy next month as I’ll get another chance to meet up with all the fab bloggers who have one thing in mind; having a natter and a gossip learning how to do it better. What’s really important about this event is that hardworking Mummy (and Daddy bloggers) will be travelling […]

Motherhood to be is all made worthwhile by the shared laughter that comes with it. What I love about these photos is that they make me laugh every time I look at them. Much as you think it would be Christmas day, this was one of the year’s that Miniminx had spent Christmas at her […]

Well, I’m being dramatic, I have not replaced the entire wardrobe, it’s had a necessary update as a few things need replacing. Actually, these few things are being parked permanently; in the dressing up box or the ‘vintage’ pile for my daughter, never to see the light of day until she asks for them. But […]

The World Cup-silly-season has arrived it seems and with it a ‘Lock up your daughters’ scare story. We are going to hear more about early onset puberty and as parents it’s something that’s going to worry us all. I urge you to do your own research; speak to your doctor, look at trusted sources and […]

There are over 250 elephants around London at the moment which means if you are taking your camera out with you, you are more than likely to snap something on the fly. I’ve have taken lots of shots out of cabs. Including this fun looking Polo Elephant and these two around the Albert Memorial at […]

I’ve watched two teen dramas this week and I’m stunned at the issues they’ve both managed to pack into the hour long slot they occupy. I found Skins ruthlessly gritty and with it’s smattering of precocious post adolescent sexuality, perhaps a little too gratuitous. In fact, scrub that, nihilistic. Gritty dramas like Shameless have humour […]

Funnily enough these images are both taken in Ibiza. The first is on a yoga retreat which was brilliant and a month later I started my blog. I use this image for my screen saver on my laptop because it’s so calming. It’s a shame it doesn’t look so good against the page colour but […]

Twitter is ubiquitous and it’s reached superstar status as a social networking platform. Britney Spears, Ashton Kutcher, Stephen Fry and Lady Gaga have all amassed great followings on their twitter feeds and in turn they’ve managed to create a mass of press coverage about it too. So what does this mean for us lesser mortals?
