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 forward to, I’m beginning to perk up. So what about the last seven days? Well here are my Little Loves for this week… Read I’ve been on a mission this week, to keep the Mum Meltdown at bay. Although I’m still working on getting to bed earlier, I have been  implementing small acts of self-kindness on a daily basis. Earlier in the week,… View Post

Having 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 like a dog with a proverbial bone…a woman possessed. There was no WAY I was going to give up on this one. “Why can’t people just do their job properly?” I shouted at my husband who was cowering in the corner, wondering when it would be his turn to get it in the neck. Stage One This my friends, is a sure… View Post

Most 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 hosts her ‘Little Loves’ linky every Friday and I’ve been itching to join in with it for ages. I love the idea of sharing 5 things that I’ve discovered/enjoyed during the week and know I will take as much pleasure from having a nosy at other people’s. So without further ado, here are my ‘Little Loves’ for this week…   Read: One thing I’ve promised… View Post

  A 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 all memory of that clip on ‘The Moaning of Life’ where Karl Pilkington, the dead pan misery-guts we all know and love, forces his face to crack surrounded by 40+ complete strangers. Have you seen it? Our experience wasn’t dissimilar… On Wednesday evening of last week, the two of us turned up to the pre-booked venue, a little unsure of what we were… View Post

I’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 will post from time to time, recent events have caused me to consider the longevity of that particular outlet. So here I am. Just me with my very own space to write whatever takes my fancy. I feel like the new girl at school with a brand new pencil case, shiny shoes and a completely unspoilt note pad. Remember trying to craft your very… View Post
