Muscle Food Review

If you buy the groceries in your house, you’ll know that buying any type of meat is normally quite expensive. It doesn’t matter where you shop, if you have a growing family, buying weekly shopping is expensive. I buy the food in this house and cook too. As you can tell from this blog I’m…

Nappy wars 

When you become a parent, you expect certain brands to be better than others. The more expensive something is, the better, right? So when I first put Pampers on Emily, I will admit I was disappointed. I think Pampers is very overpriced for what it is. But this is what I think, everyone has their own…

TV in 2018 – so far so good

2017 did pretty well in terms of TV but 2018 is not holding back and it’s got some blinders to watch out for. So what has this year got to offer? Kick off your slippers, get comfy on the sofa and tuck into some of the best TV to start the year. Enjoy! McMafia From…

We went to Giovanni Fletcher’s book signing in Canterbury

If you don’t know much about Giovanna, she grew up in Essex with her Italian dad Mario, mum Kim, big sister Giorgina and little brother Mario (he was on TOWIE), and with family playing such a big part of her life it was only natural that she had always dreamed of having children of her…

Why I’m disappointed with the revival of Will and Grace

Back in the day, American sitcom Will and Grace, was groundbreaking- it was witty, cheeky, silly and dived in places that most were to scared to go to. The hit TV series, constantly nominated but never winning awards, took the world by storm, but it didn’t matter, they had their millions of followers, from afar,…

What’s happening to the NHS dentists in Kent?

Sam visited his dentist last week for a check up and was told that his surgery and it’s sister surgery was closing in a Ramsgate, leaving 16k patients desperately trying to find a new one. Hundreds of people have expressed their concern over finding a new dentist in posts I’ve seen shared online as Sam’s…

TV in 2017 has been great… so far. 

We had a lot of great TV last year, which helped mitigate what sometimes felt like a world gone mad (and about to burn). This year feels about the same, but luckily we still have great TV to watch (while it lasts anyway). It’s already November and with only just over 2 months to go…

Emily had her 10 month review last week 

My little baby is 10 months old. Crazy how time is flying. Last week Tuesday Emily had her 10 month review with the health visitor at our local children’s centre. It’s great to see how much she has grown in her little life. She’s crawling, pulling herself up, desperately trying to walk as she can…

Emily and Baby Gates

It appears whilst Emily is in her quest of new adventure and discovery, she just can’t help swinging out of things, putting random bits in her mouth and charging full speed ahead crawling around the place. Which means I need eyes at the back of my head. Working from home is fine if Emily is…

Inside London Fire Brigade – TV  

I’ve been watching ITV’s three-part documentary series that follows the London Fire Brigade. If you haven’t seen it, find it on catch up/ITV Player. It follows the life of one of London’s heroic teams that we take for granted, as they talk about their acts of heroism and extroadinary courage in scenes such as the…
