It’s summer, don’t ever forget wet wipes!

I made the terrible mistake of forgetting wet wipes the other day and my god it was an afternoon of water pouring over the side of the pram and praying we were closer to home whilst Emily bathed in her stickiness, oblivious to my panic. Before I had Emily the need for wet wipes never…

Why I’m a little in love with BAOBAO London

For the last year I have been drooling a lot over food accounts on Instagram and one that has always captured my attention, has always been Taiwanese restaurant BAOBAO London at BoxPark in East Croydon. After our visit, I’ll definitely be going back. For those of you who don’t know what this treasure of a…

Our trip to the walk-in minor injury unit

This is my second visit to a NHS hospital for a minor injury since Emily was born. Whilst it’s never ideal to end up in a walk-in or emergency unit of any kind, I’m thankful I’m not here more often. My child may think she’s GI Joe on occasion, but thankfully she’s not caused that…

We’ve finally got an NHS dentist

I’m sure you’ve read in recent months the big change up with dental surgeries in the Kentish area. A lot of counties have seen an increase in dental surgeries closing down which has proved a nightmare for most people. Our dentist in Ramsgate close last year with just a few weeks notice given. In total…

A Mediterranean Dinner with friends

A few weeks ago we had friends over for dinner. I love a good dinner party and it’s nice to have friends over to enjoy good food, drink and music. As always I had planned this weeks in advance, actually a month or so in advance. We had mentioned a few dates but with summer…

I’m not a football fan, but…

Ok, admittedly, I’ve never really been a football fan, it’s just not something that has ever interested me. I have dated throughout my life guys that feel passionately about football and it’s always been something I’ve been dragged to but still, nope, not interested. A few years ago, first date jitters with Sam slowly going…

A Father’s Day Message…

Throughout my 33 years, I’ve had men who have played strong roles in my life. Since my father passed in ’97, my grandad played a huge role, my mum’s partner has done so for the last 6 years and the last 2 & 1/2, Sam, my partner has played his with Emily. I am so…

I went to my first brewery launch and it was pretty awesome

A couple of months ago I attended a brewery launch for a craft beer company that’s been the talk of the town with their delicious craft beer. After four years operating from a pub garden, Surbiton’s Big Smoke Brew Co finally showed off their new shiny brewery premises in Esher and I got to go…

Killing Eve is back. Thrilled is an understatement.

We had friends over last Saturday so watching Killing Eve premiering it’s second season was a little delayed for me. The British soy thriller television series staring two strong female leads – Hollywood actress Sandra Oh and English actress Jodie Comer – has been a talking point the last few months. Especially since America has…
