SENSATIONAL AT SIXTY | SENSATIONAL AT SIXTY

Sensational at Sixty Yesterday evening I was privileged to attend a sixtieth birthday party for one of my Mum’s nearest and dearest friends.  My Mum’s friend June has been in our lives for as long as I can remember and hearing everyone speak about the wonderful woman that she is last night made my heart want to sing.  If there’s anyone that is sensational at sixty, June is. Sometimes we go through difficult times and attend funerals for those that we…

WHAT CAN VEGANS EAT {HANDMADE BURGER COMPANY REVIEW} | WHAT CAN VEGANS EAT

What Can Vegans Eat {Handmade Burger Company Review} Last month the lovely Lucy from Hello Beautiful Bear invited me to come and review the Handmade Burger Company’s vegan menu.  I know while making the transition to cruelty-free it’s often the question in my mind if we try and go out to a restaurant for food ‘what can vegans eat?’  I am never one to want to be fussy and usually always order similar meals from wherever I go.  I know that…

Happy In School Child

Happy In School Child

There has been so much going on over the last month and I get sad with myself when I go through phases of not wanting to blog as sooooo much has changed recently.  We have been making lots of important decisions and I have been getting a lot better emotionally (with my mental health) but having all sorts of interesting issues physically, and I’m under investigation for a few things.  As I sat and thought what on earth could I…

GIRLS’ FOOTBALL WEEK

GIRLS’ FOOTBALL WEEK

It’s Girls’ Football Week A couple of weeks ago we were invited to Wembley by the FA to learn all about Girls’ Football Week.  Our two eldest were so excited and I’m gutted to report that on the actual day of the event I’d been up all night with sickness and was far too unwell to drive the 4 hour drive down to Wembley nevermind the journey back again.  One of those moments were you’re actually devastated as it felt like…

A LITTLE PINK COAT {THE ORDINARY MOMENTS 16 #4} | LITTLE PINK COAT

A Little Pink Coat {The Ordinary Moments 16 #4} I remember the day that we bought it for Shayla-Rae while we were in Debenhams.  I remember being gutted that they’d sold out in Isis’ size.  A little pink coat with hearts, and a swing style flare.  It was the most adorable thing we’d ever seen her in.  Shayla-Rae really suits pink with her bright blonde locks, big blue eyes, she is a true summer and suits all of these beautiful bright colours….

WEEK ONE #CELEBRATINGMOTHERHOODIG ROUND-UP | #CELEBRATINGMOTHERHOODIG

Week One #CelebratingMotherhoodIG Round-Up Wow, considering that I only announced the #CelebratingMotherhoodIG and #CMDadsCorner  instagram communities on Thursday (what was I thinking saying I’d do a round-up this week?) I have been so pleasantly surprised to see that not only do I have enough participants to have a round-up I was ridiculously stuck trying to choose just four. I have been good and just chosen four over all, but I’m also going to feature here my #CelebratingMotherhoodIG picks and then the #CMDadsCorner choices separately too, as we had enough to…

KNEE HIGH BOOTS FROM START RITE | KNEE HIGH BOOTS

Knee high boots from Start Rite Not so long ago I blogged about how Isis had out grown all her shoes and we had bought her a few new pairs including these beautiful knee high boots from Start Rite.  We had bought them all some new black patent Dr Martens and I also bought Isis a pair of party shoes and these gorgeous tan leather knee high boots from Start Rite as they looked like they would go really well with a lot of her…

#CELEBRATINGMOTHERHOODIG AN INSTAGRAM COMMUNITY | CELEBRATINGMOTHERHOODIG

#CelebratingMotherhoodIG an Instagram Community I have seen lots of  instagram communities arising recently.  Two of my favourites are #LittleFierceOnes hosted by Amy and Aby who are fast becoming instagram royalty, and also #LifeCloseUp hosted by the beautiful Jenny at Let’s Talk Mommy.  I LOVE instagram.  I have nowhere near as many followers as most instagrammers do.  Not even close.  The purpose of this is not to build up my instagram.  The purpose for this community is plain and simple. There are too many forums and places in this world where we all are too quick…

5 THINGS I’M GRATEFUL FOR

5 THINGS I’M GRATEFUL FOR

5 Things I’m Grateful For I have been feeling so rubbish for so many reasons recently but after having a good old vent to a blogging friend (the beautiful Vicki Psarias ‘Honest Mum‘) about how I can’t blog when I feel like this, I was encouraged to focus on the positives in my life.  All the things that I am grateful for. Such wise words, and also what my Mum told me to do.  Great minds think alike. So here are 5 things…

LAZY DAYS {THE ORDINARY MOMENTS 16 #3}

LAZY DAYS {THE ORDINARY MOMENTS 16 #3}

Lazy Days These lazy days  are becoming a lot more frequent in our home as of late.  The horrible wet weather plus an anxious disposition has meant a lot more staying indoors.  A lot more reading books, playing games, watching programmes, singing songs and cuddling in our pyjamas.  It has been really nice to just be and not feel the pressure to do anything.  It was hard at the weekend as it was my beautiful sister-in-love’s baby shower and I just couldn’t muster…
