As we approach the end of October, and I get back into the swing of normal, natural blogging, I felt it necessary to explain what happened this month-blog posts and no blog posts, a blog a day, then no blogs for a few days.
I began October, with a list-31 prompts, for the 31 days of October. I was ready-I had already written a weeks worth before October had even arrived. I got into the swing of taking a prompt and writing something unique-something that almost didn’t fit the common theme. Continue reading
If you follow me on my social media channels, you’ll be quite familiar with my frequent posts about the children doing well in and out of school, and making us proud.
As they’ve grown, and I’ve gained Mummy friends, and family members have had their children, I’ve found myself on the end of snide comments and negativity about being a “baby bore” and over praising my kids. Continue reading
Today is day 11 of Blogtober 2017, and the theme is…….Kitchen!
My kitchen is unfortunately not officially mine. We live in a rented house, and most of our fixtures and fittings are integrated (which I do still love by the way). I especially love my dishwasher and tumble dryer (which is mine) and literally couldn’t imagine life without them-let alone remember what life was like prior to having them!
When I was younger-I used to dream about my first home, and what would be in it. I’d spend hours, searching the Argos catalogue, choosing my future products, in a “money is no issue” situation.
So-today’s theme of “Kitchen” is a really easy one. Let me take you around my dream kitchen, using the power of the Argos website, and internet links! Continue reading
That’s probably not the way to start a blog but to be honest, I can’t think of another way-I’ve been waiting to find a time when I can speak about what I went through.
And now words seem to fail me. Continue reading
Hello-and welcome to the first day of #Blogtober17! If you didn’t catch my Facebook post yesterday, then you may not have the first idea about what’s happening right now.
Blogtober is basically a-blog-a-day! I’ll be blogging about a variety of random subjects, every day throughout this month-but don’t worry-there will still be the usual reviews and ramblings of my mind!
Today’s theme, as the title suggests, is, All About You. (Which is All About ME!)
Today my girl turns 4!
Recently, I realised, I’ve never written about Olivia’s birth. I’ve mentioned it in previous blogs-of course I have. Many of my readers are well aware she was our rainbow baby after our three miscarriages.
But I think it’s important for her to have her own story-her own words-to look back on when I’m old and grey (and probably more forgetful than I am now).
So here you are SWEET-PEA-this is your story. And it all begins 4 years ago today……
Remember fidget spinners and bottle flipping? Well there’s now a new toy in town-Mokuru!
What is a Mokuru?
Vertu Honda asked us to tell them (and you, my lovely readers), why we love our car!
Before I continue, I’d like to point out, we don’t own a flash car-it’s a Renault Laguna. It makes funky noises (not good funky) when you turn it on/move it/turn it, it doesn’t look amazing, and it’s quite old.
However, it is our car, and, we have reasons we love it so much.
