Time to Hang Up the Blog!

  As you may or may not have noticed, I’ve been a tad quiet on ye olde blogette. This is partly because I’ve been struggling with the blog mojo, melting in the Mediterranean heat and hugely aware that I have three small people off school and home with Maman Prabulous.  We’re already well into August and […]

#OopsFiles 19: Guest Blogger Island Living 365

You know when someone says “I hurt myself laughing”/”I almost fell off the sofa in hysterics”/”I literally howled at this”? Well, they’re usually just phrases aren’t they?  Yes you read something funny but actually physically hurting yourself?  Hmmmm…  Guess what?  When the Island Living 365 #OopsFiles submission by Emma landed in my inbox, I actually […]

How NOT To Do a Blog Awards Acceptance Speech #BiBs2016

It’s now almost two weeks since the Brilliance in Blogging awards in London. Almost two weeks since that gorgeous, astonishing, unfathomable and unexpected moment when I heard the opening of an envelope followed by Carol Smillie (TV personality turned  cofounder of Diary Doll) say two words I thought I’d misheard: Absolutely Prabulous. I know…mad right?! Video […]

#OopsFiles 18: Guest Blogger Cuddle Fairy

When everyone’s favourite fairy, I mean blogger, Cuddle Fairy told me she had an #OopsFiles post for me specifically about #BML16, I was delighted.  Not only have I been wanting to feature her for the longest time, I also had quite a few Oops moments from my recent #BML16 weekend in London but can’t really ‘star’ in […]

I Went to BML16 with photo collage of Prabs' weekend

13 Things I Learned From my First Blogging Conference #BML16

So #BML16 is over. Everyone’s returned to their ‘normal’ life. Hopefully those that had their eye on specific sessions benefited from them and returned home with applicable valuable tips. Presumably people said hello to some of the bloggers they were eager to meet in person. And I should imagine many people started this week with […]

Introducing my #BML16 Sponsor!

So just weeks after having the privilege of reviewing their rather dashing Stuart Point rugby top I’m absolutely delighted to announce Lucas Frank as my #BML16 sponsor.  In case, you’ve missed my previous post, Brit Mums Live is the UK’s biggest blog event of the year! Now, it could just be the overall growing excitement at the thought […]

To M on Your 12th Birthday. It’s Not You, It’s Me. Sorry

Dear Musical M, you’re 12. I know it never really means anything to others when they see their social media feeds flooded with pictures of kids growing up and the customary ‘I can’t believe s/he is x yrs old!’ from the parents. But…fact is, I simply can’t believe you’re 12.  Frankly, I spent so long […]

The #OopsFiles 16: Guest Blogger Wry Mummy

Every year my kids have a birthday.  It’s dreadfully inconvenient.  There ought to be a law making it compulsory that birthdays are only celebrated every [insert number of kids] years.  Musical M turned 12 last weekend.  My stomach turned over at the thought of having to  actually do stuff for her birthday.  Yep, I’m no […]

A Lucas Frank Rugby Shirt? I Should Coco!

I’M SLIGHTLY OBSESSED WITH LIGHTHOUSES. I don’t know when it started but I really do gravitate towards anything of the lighthouse variety.  (I er may have steered Dreamy D, into having a nautical-themed room now that he’s no longer sharing with his sisters, ahem.)  As a blogger, I get followed every day by new people […]

so what do you do al day shopping trolley

So What Do You Do All Day?!

So I tumble out of bed, make it downstairs with minutes to spare before the time to leave the house (yep Hubster is a saint who’s got the breakfast/packed lunch gig down to a fine art as I’m usually up til stupid o’clock blogging the night before), drop them all off at school/office/police station (ok last one […]

Single Mum Speaks OopsFiles guest blogger

The #OopsFiles 14 Guest Blogger: Single Mum Speaks

Did I laugh when this landed in my inbox?  Yep.  The whole thing is great and probably the most unusual  submission I’ve received so far.  The #OopsFiles series just gets weirder each week and I mean that in the best possible way!  The erm ‘Danish bit’ really made me laugh, although I realised afterwards that […]

The #OopsFiles 13: Guest Blogger Pink Noam

Welcome back for another edition of the #OopsFiles, the guest blog series that’s earning a reputation as a place where willing bloggers – yes they’re actually WILLING – come to  confess their sins/embarrassing life stories!  Now, two themes have come up a few times since the series began: nakedness and public transport indiscretions.  Blimey.  This […]
