Little Bird By Jools Spring/Summer 2017!

When I went to the Mothercare Spring/Summer preview for 2017 back in November I wrote about my favourite pieces from the show and of course, as always, most of them came from the Little Bird by Jools collection. I just can’t get enough of the designs super Mum Jools Oliver comes up with and just as with every collection to date I have a list as long as my arm of all the pieces I want to dress Florence and Jimmy […]

The Mobiliser From Back In Action – A Powerful Spinal Joint Mobilisation System!

Back in October after meeting the fab guys from Back In Action, a shop with design as well as comfort at the forefront of their offerings, I was sent a Mobiliser to test for a few months and review on the blog. The Mobiliser is, as they say at Back In Action, a powerful spinal join mobilisation system and is something you can have and use at home to give the benefits of a physiotherapy session to poorly backs. It’s […]

Bullying – Oh No You Don’t!

There’s been a fair amount of posts about bullying in the blogosphere of recent late and I’ve read them with interest. Donna Wishart from What The Red Head Said wrote only last week of her experiences at being bullied as an adult and I’ve read plenty more to do with times looked back on from other’s school days. I myself wasn’t really bullied at school – at least that’s how I remember it. There were brief moments in my teens where […]

The Class Bear – Part 2!

Just in case any of you were left wondering just how curmudgeonly this Mummy can be after my last post… I wanted to set your mind at rest and let you know that Barnaby The Bear had a truly spiffing time with us! Ok, ok, I moaned but I quite got into it in the end (having a competitive streak helps) and Jimmy was thrilled to bits with the activities we got up to with the class puppet, I mean […]

The Class Bear!

That moment when your child comes out of school loaded down with a bag the class mascot ‘Barnaby Bear’ lives in… ‘Oh good grief!’ I didn’t so much as inwardly groan as the teacher looked at me, a little bit astonished that I could be horrid enough to show my child that I was not… (quite) as happy as him at the prospect! Perhaps I’m a mean Mummy? Maybe I’m just mean in general but surely I’m not the only mother in […]

Pizza Express Explodes On 2017!

We often take a visit to Pizza Express and sometimes it’s for a special treat while other times it’s simply because we’re out shopping, need food at an inexpensive price and know that it will be yummy while the children will love it! We have our favourites (actually quite a few) but we especially like to try the new menus when they come out too and because the latest one has just launched it was the perfect time to visit. It was […]

A New Year!

It’s a new year and I have massive plans for my blog and work as a media outreach consultant for 2017 yet somehow we’ve crept up to the 6th of January and I’ve not managed to do much work at all. Getting a big house ready for Christmas was a fun task but de-glitzing it afterwards seems to have taken an age and only today have I felt able to sit myself down at the computer, edit my photographs and think […]
