I’m suffering with dental pain and I’m so over it

Emily’s been having teething pains from hell this year, but recently, thankfully, she’s not been suffering. Whereas me, well, I’m just in agony. It’s not teething but since having dental surgery a few weeks ago, my mouth has been through hell and back and it’s not fun! I’m so over it. It hurts, the pain…

Autumn is here and I love it

Now that November is here the mornings and nights are darker, the days colder and the floor littered with leaves, autumn is well and truly here. Amongst it all, the Sky daily has been beautiful. Looking out across the field near our house, we can see the stunning colours filling the sky as the sun…

Im a Celeb is coming back and I’m not happy this year.

It’s the only reality program I show an inch of interest towards. Every year celebs or past-their-sale-date celebs are thrown into the jungle together and put through gross and terrifying tests to see how far they’d go for their pay packet and to be made king or queen of the mighty Australian jungle. It’s not…

We ate at Cafe Rouge for my birthday and I still love it 28 years on.

Cafe Rouge is one of my favourite restaurants, ever. As a child my dad used to take my sister and I to the Richmond restaurant where breakfast, lunch or dinner was a favourite time spent there. The smell of freshly roasted coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice, baked croissants, sugar cubes in little white bowls, chic…

Great benefits available at the little bears club at Westwood Cross

Going shopping with children whatever the kind is rarely a fun day out, unless they’re small, like really really small. So when I go to Westwood Cross in Broadstairs, it’s a rarity because Emily isn’t interested in sitting in a pram whilst I browse the aisle in each and every shop, and why should she?…

We have a leftie! ✋🏻

Being a left-hander, I have grown up knowing the struggle us lefties have in a world full of right-handers. According to Anything Left Handed, the world’s first, specialist left-handed shop, in the UK around 13% of men and 11% of women are left-handed. Since Emily has been able to pick anything up, she’s used her…

Winter is coming

The last few days the weather has been a little all over the place. Last weekend changed it all – last Saturday nights storm happened, then Sunday came with a huge gust of freezing wind and this week, although sunny, you can feel the weather change. It’s funny, because last year, to the day, looking…

I’m all set for Emily’s birthday, 5 weeks early!

It’s been a month since I wrote a post about starting to plan Emily’s birthday. Since then, I’ve booked a table for the birthday dinner, confirmed my mum and Leon are coming with their accommodation sorted, friends and family invited and confirmed and birthday presents wrapped, her birthday outfit sorted, and I’ve actually finished the…

Mummy’s little assistant

Working from home sure does have its benefits. Being a stay-at-home-mum-to-one whilst working means that I get to spend my day with my little assistant, mummy’s little helper. Whilst she’s not the most helpful when I’m doing work trying to overtake my iPad or iPhone, she likes to help me in other departments and I…

I’m addicted to Killing Eve

Ok, let’s just recap I’m not actually killing someone called Eve, but the fabulous BBC drama “Killing Eve,” is amazing. Originally this post was to mention how bloody (literally) amazing it is whilst I binge watched it, but I binged watched it in a few days and I can safely say, if the rumours are…

Emily’s having her settling in session this week

Emily is starting nursery next week and although Sam and I are excited for her and know it’s a good thing, we’re also baffled at how fast she’s growing up into this amazing independent, confident, funny and intelligent girl. It’s scary. Next Thursday the 11th October, Emily will start a short day, one day a…
