Raffie’s Nursery Tales!

Raffie’s room has been one in the making for a long time now and while it’s not finished quite yet (he’s not going to be in there for a good few months don’t forget), I couldn’t wait to show you how beautiful it is already. We have transformed Daddy’s old music room (and built him a brand new studio in the garage) into a white and silvery star shimmered nursery of gorgeous proportions. It’s a small room but perfectly formed […]

Norwich Theatre Royal – WIN A Family Ticket To The 2017 Panto!

Yesterday the kids and I kicked off half term with a trip to Norwich Theatre Royal to see the brilliant Chris and Pui Live which is on tour and was in Norwich for one day only! I can’t do too much at the moment due to my C-Section with Raffie and our usual holiday jaunts to London are not to be this October half term so it’s absolutely wonderful to have great theatre here in Norfolk meaning we don’t need […]

Dearest Raffie – Thank You For Coming Out Of Me!

Jimmy was beside himself with glee at the thought of seeing the movie of his favourite, absolute bestest EVER programme […]

Beautiful – The Carole King Musical Tour – Norwich Theatre Royal Review!

About a year and a half ago Jonny surprised me with tickets to go and see Beautiful, the Carole King Musical in London. He knew I was missing ‘home’ (we’d JUST left the capital for Norfolk) and he knows Carole is one of my favourite artists ever. It was a bold, yet uncharacteristic move which earned him many, many brownie points. This sort of behaviour was unprecedented, had never happened before and hasn’t happened since but it was such a […]

Pregnancy Diary – 40 Weeks Pregnant!

Well there we are. 40 weeks pregnant. Couldn’t be more full term than that and yet still… NO baby! Technically my due date is not until the day after tomorrow (5th October 2017) but having gone from believing the Doctors dates to be wrong and expecting this child to evict my body a good couple of week’s ago and knowing that by this amount of days pre due date with my other two and I had already given birth, it’s […]
