School Report!

We spent bank holiday weekend and a few more days at my Mum’s in Norfolk and in typical Mum style she had dug out a load of old bits and bobs for me to decide if I wanted to keep them or not. Nestling among the many piles of papers which included the screen play to Pretty Woman given to me by my best friend (kept) and a lot of old birthday cards (binned) I found an old school report […]

Horrible Histories Launch Series 4 On DVD!

Around three years ago my little sister Phoebe, who was then 9, came to stay with us for a couple of days. I remember her watching the BBC programme Horrible Histories on the computer for absolutely ages and chuckling away. (Their site has games and programme information too.) She kept asking Jonny to come and see it, wanting to share the fun and he sat with her for ages watching episode after episode. Later on that day I said to him […]

Crafty Glasses And Delicious Sparkling Wine!

I’m Going away for the night this weekend for a friend’s 40th birthday. We’re going to a spa hotel where as well as pampering, I intend to try and sleep as much as possible!

He recommended NV Blanc De Blancs, Charles Pelletier and I know his recommendation will be perfect – we’ve drunk wine he’s recommended before! My […]

Mole Removal – Healing Process In Pictures!

As you might know, I had two moles on my face removed last week at The Harley Street Dermatology Clinic with Dr Adam Friedmann. Dr Friedmann, a Consultant Dermatologist suggested that it may take between 7 and 10 days for the black marks left by quarterisation to fall off and for my face to start looking better again. I know it could take 6 months to heal completely and for the scars to be more unnoticeable but I am already, happy just one […]

Fashion With My Nikon D3200!

I use my new Nikon D3200 for most of the photographs on my blog these days. Mainly because I find it very easy to use now that I have been on my course but also because the picture quality is out of this world! I won’t say I’m 100% proficient in using it yet, far from it, I’ve lots to learn but the course I took with Nikon helped unlock the language for me and I’m doing much better I […]

Graduate Fashion Week Winner Designs Collection For George!

I love clothes and fashion and I especially enjoy buying lovely things for the children to wear. There’s so much choice on the high street these days and something which accommodates every purse, you can even buy not just clothes, but lovely clothes in supermarkets. I myself have noticed that the majority of clothing I wear these days comes from purchases made whilst doing my grocery shopping and it’s not just because the price is right, that’s merely a bonus, it’s […]

I’m An Official Blogger For Lollibop! (With Breaking Line Up News!)

I have some very exciting news! I have been asked if I would like to be one of 12 official blogger ambassadors for the LolliBop Festival. As you will probably know, I love the Lollibop Festival as much as my children do and I didn’t have to be asked twice! In fact, the email I sent back to the guys from the festival saying ‘yes, yes, YES PLEASE!’ probably pinged their inbox before they’d even come out of the email they’d […]

The Witching Hour!

The first chapter in ‘The BFG’ by Roald Dhal is called ‘The Witching Hour’ and it really stuck in my mind after reading it as a child. It’s that time in the middle of the night when sleep won’t come and you just lie awake thinking and worrying… It’s not a good time of day! I know technically the witching hour is supposed to be mid night but I always think 4am is a far better candidate for the title! […]

Perhaps I’ll Like My Face Soon!

This time last week I visited  The Harley Street Dermatology Clinic and met with Consultant Dermatolgist Dr Adam Friedmann for the first time. The reason for my visit? The two moles on my face that I have long disliked and wish I could get rid of. I wrote about why in this post when I got back from my appointment seven days ago. And this was how I looked before I visited the clinic and met with Dr friedmann again today for the second […]
