They’re Back to School and I’m Back to the Blog (with an apology!)

Once upon a time, a mummy blogger (who nearly punched herself in the face typing that stupid phrase because she’s pretty sure nobody says ‘mummy graphic designer’ or ‘mummy pharmacist’) sat down to write the obligatory back to school 2017 post. She was several days late (because truth be told, she was a bit of […]


How to Secure Your Family’s Financial Future #MoneyMatters

They Say Money Can’t Buy Happiness… It seems we can’t go a day without stumbling across some sort of mantra about how our happiness is down to our general outlook in life. I do agree with this yet surely it’s hard to have a truly happy life if you’re constantly plagued with money worries and unsure […]

“Didn’t He Do Well?” RIP Sir Bruce

  I should probably have entitled this ‘The impossible blog post’. I mean, how do I write about one of the most loved longstanding respected personalities of British entertainment?  Is it even possible to come up with something that does Sir Bruce Forsyth enough justice?* I sat down just two hours after the sad news of […]

Would You Buy Your Fiancé an Engagement Watch?

Would Your Fiancé Be Happy or Disappointed to Get an Engagement Watch Not a Ring? Traditions have a knack of remaining intact – after all, that’s why we call them traditions. Nevertheless, time changes everything slowly but surely, even when it comes to the traditions we hold most near and dear. The traditions of marriage […]

Almost half […]

Dear Papa

Dear Papa, Mama is not an organised blogger. At. All. After realising that she hadn’t written anything for Father’s Day (and that the only time she’s written something for it was two years ago), she quickly ‘bashed something out’ (her words) and asked us to contribute. Apparently, this isn’t as bad as Mother’s Day this year where she […]

We Are Not The Same

I originally wrote this as a Facebook post, Friday May 26th. Several people contacted me after trying to share it only to find they could only share the video but not my words. So I’ve turned it into a blog post which can be shared, words, video and all. I do hope you will as it’s a message I feel […]

My Sincere Apology to You for What is About to Happen

I’M WRITING THIS FULL OF THE NASTIEST COLD I’VE HAD IN YEARS.   The headache is messing with my brain, i can’t stop sneezing all over the ruddy keyboard (yuk) and my preoccupation with my aching throat is robbing me of my comedic juices.
