Memories Fade, They Don’t Die

    I decided not to say anything on social media yesterday, but it was the ten year anniversary of Mum’s death on Sunday. In fact, I don’t think I said much at all. Except to Dexter of course, I always make an exception for him.   Dexter had just...

Birthday Fun with Balloon Time

    You may have seen me mention online, but it was Dexter’s birthday yesterday. I’m now the proud mother of two boys aged 20 and 11, although to this day, I maintain I don’t look nearly old enough.   I told Dexter, perhaps somewhat naïvely, that...

Blogger’s Block

    I’ve tried to write a blog post for weeks now. No big announcement or anything, but just to write something. Anything. But every time I try, the words haven’t quite made it from my head through to my fingers. I have procrastinated like mad –...

Tween Life

    Dexter is 11 next week. I know this because not only did I give birth to him, so I’m pretty sure I’ll always remember the date, but in the three months running up to his birthday, Dexter is always there to remind me. Every. Single. Day.   I kid you...

Signs I’m Turning Into My Nan

    “The evolutionary phase of Nanadom” … that’s how my friend Claire described my life this morning. And the annoying thing is, she’s totally right. I’ll try and explain. (That’s my lovely Nan Florence above by the way.)   Let’s just use this...

House Update & Dining Room Wishlist

    It’s been six days since I heard the bad news about my house falling through. You may be forgiven for thinking that I would wallow in a ball of self-pity and gin, but only one of those is true. (Mmmm … gin.) Instead, I arranged to see a house the very...

Sunday at the Seaside

      Sunday morning is normally pretty hectic in our house – mainly with football shenanigans. However, as the season has finished for us now (THANK GOD), today was the second Sunday this year that I have had a lie-in. Except … as I’m...

The House Fell Through

    On a scale of 1 to 10 of bad news I could have received today, I think we definitely hit an 8.5 today. Thankfully, no-one has died (a definite 10 on the scale I’d say) and I have no husband to divorce, but the next most stressful thing in life,...

Shopping When You’re Plus Size

      See that picture above? That was me, yesterday, trying to find something to wear for tomorrow’s Blogon conference. As you can see, it wasn’t the most successful trip. This blouse was a size 20 so that I could try and fit the girls in,...
