My Style at 35

I am now officially in my mid 30’s and as a mummy of 2 I can’t get away with short skirts and lots of cleavage anymore. My poor boobs definitely need a helping hand but now it’s…

My Birthday Wish List

Birthday Wish List

I am turning 35 tomorrow and after 12 months of watching my pennies while on Maternity Leave, I am looking forward to treating myself to a few luxury items. It does the soul good to go shopping once in a while and resist the instinct to spend all your money on things for the kids or the house. So here’s my Birthday Wish List…………. View Post


Posts From The Heart #4 – Favourites

Welcome, February !!! I hope everyone is happy that the glumness of January is finally gone and we are well and truly into 2017. This weeks post have reflected the change and there have been lots of great upbeat posts. My 3 Favourite this week are –
Mama Cat & Baby Bee – A Letter to my Breastfeeding, Bed-Sharing Toddler – This is a lovely sweet post of doing what is natural. Co-sleeping and breastfeeding on demand were not predestined but that’s what Bee wanted and that’s what mum has done. We all need to follow our own paths.
Rainbow Dust – A letter to me…. – This is a bitter sweet post but truly from the heart. When something doesn’t go quite right we always blame ourselves and we have to learn to understand that somethings things just happen.
Mind Your Mama – WHY I WILL BE INVESTING IN MYSELF IN 2017 – This posts speaks volumes to me and is my mission of 2017. We all need to take stock and reassess if working is the best option and if we don’t work outside the house what can we do ? I look forward to reading your journey.

Our Kind Of Love

In Spain aged 20

20 Years Old – 5 Weeks of Dating

I fell in love my with my husband the second I met him. It was one of those breathtaking moments that sweeps you off your feet. I had just started a new job at the Civil service and he was the office joker. We were both 19 and apart from the small fact I had been dating someone else for 2 years we soon found ourselves an item. Within weeks Lee had moved into my parent’s house and within months we rented out 1st flat. Life for us was just one big party. View Post
