Purge to Splurge – A Wardrobe Overhaul

[dropcap]C[/dropcap]rimson leaves, crisp mornings, and…dirty windows. Yes, it’s officially autumn, there’s no doubt about that. Remind me why all the windows suddenly look like something out of Hammer House of Horrors? I might not be keen on the extra cleaning required, but autumn is officially my favourite season; not least because I get to resurrect my cosy knits and ankle boots.…

Jazzy Scarves, Autumn Puddings and a Bit of Birdy Love #…

For some reason, this week has dragged by super slowly. Not that I’m wishing my life away you understand, I’ve just been so tired. Every day I’ve woken up, longing for it to be the weekend and for the alarm to be a mistake. Now that we are finally in sniffing distance and I have a girlie overnight break to look…

The Three Stages of a Mum Meltdown 

[dropcap]H[/dropcap]aving spent almost an entire week trying to persuade my daughter’s drama teacher to issue her with a new exam certificate (name spelt correctly this time) I could feel the red mist descending. How can one exam certificate take 9 months for goodness sake? What followed was not pretty…. Private Instagram messages, Facebook posts written on her business page, voicemail messages getting increasingly sterner by the day. I was…

Cold Feet, Death by Chocolate and Going Out Out #LittleLoves

[dropcap]M[/dropcap]ost of you know that I’ve been a blogger for quite some time; not writing in this space, but over at 3 Children and It. From time to time, us bloggers like to jump on the back of other people’s ideas…with their permission of course! Coffee, Work, Sleep Repeat is a blog I’ve followed for a long time. The lovely Morgana…

Laughter Yoga for the Uninitiated

  [dropcap]A [/dropcap]couple of months back, my friend invited me to a trial session of Laugher Yoga. I was going through a difficult period at the time and although I really had no idea what I was letting myself in for, I appreciated the invitation. Who doesn’t need more laughter in their life? It would seem that I had completely erased…

Hello From the Other Side

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]’ve been deliberating over starting a new blog for weeks. You see despite convincing myself otherwise, after 4 years of putting finger to keyboard, I’ve realised one thing: once a blogger, always a blogger. I started over-sharing tapping away back in 2012, when I launched my family lifestyle blog – 3 Children and It. Although I do intend to keep it and…

Are you a Kick-a-holic?

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] read some literature not so long ago, that talked about ‘kicks’.  At the time, I was commencing yet another course and the reading material that accompanied it, urged us not to treat this course as just another ‘kick’. What’s a ‘kick’ I hear you cry?  Well if you’re well known for starting things and not finishing them, getting excited…

Do we really hate Mother-in-Laws?

[dropcap]L[/dropcap]et’s start with a confession: I have a cleaner. Now that’s out in the open, we can continue….. My cleaners come once a week; they come as a pair. I’m not sure if they spend more time drinking coffee and chatting than mopping the floor and dusting but either way, I always return to a house that smells of Flash and kitchen…

Was There Life B.F. (Before Facebook)?

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] remember the exact time and place when my friend mentioned she had been whiling away her morning on Facebook, catching up with old school mates and reminiscing. “What’s Facebook?” I innocently enquired (don’t mock, I was a mother with 3 children under 7 and a head full of Cbeebies). “Oh it’s fab” she said “You really must check it out”. And so I did.…
