My month.. January 

So as a change of pace I thought that I'd do a run down of stuff that's big in my little world each month. So here we go for January.. I'm using - Frank Body scrub, literally this is life changing. Comes in the cutest packaging (complete this time with sexy shower cap) and is… Continue reading My month.. January 


Square peg, round hole..

How do you slot back in to a life that you've basically vacated for over half a year? It's really hard, to be changed so much in such a short time, in almost every way possible, and to emerge and slot straight back into place, follow the same path you were on before. Cancer has… Continue reading Square peg, round hole..

Christmas prep..

Theo had nursery this morning, so I thought I'd use the time to chill out and get myself a little bit more organised for Christmas. I can actually see again following yesterday's 'eye casualty' visit which is always useful when baking. These are a super cheat mince pie recipe, which always go down a treat.… Continue reading Christmas prep..

Santa Claus..

I am obsessed with Christmas, well all holidays actually but Christmas... well it's just different. I love that it's an opportunity to spread 'goodwill among men' and this year I am ALL about the goodwill. As we grow up, Christmas can become less 'magical' and more about the stresses of grown up life like 'can… Continue reading Santa Claus..

Christmas Decorating..

Christmas has arrived at our tiny house and I am enjoying every bit of it... well trying to actually. I'm not feeling as well as I'd like but have been assured that it's all to be expected. I've been aiming for 'Christmas' since June, hoping to feel better, so now it's here I'm not quite… Continue reading Christmas Decorating..

Rainy day..

It's HORRIBLE outside! Theo and I went to Tesco this morning for our weekly shop and it suddenly seems like Christmas is everywhere! Music, food, gifts, wrapping I love it! We decided to get in the mood and bought two of Tescos gorgeous poinsettia plants, at only £2.50 each they are a total bargain and… Continue reading Rainy day..

What do you say..

Terror. The world itself makes me feel that emotion.. terror. Terror is what you must feel when the boat you've loaded your entire family onto to escape your burning city, begins to sink in the dark. It's what you must feel when your about to enjoy a concert on a Friday night and someone begins… Continue reading What do you say..

Goodbye two..

Tonight I put a two year old to bed... for the last time. We had a wonderful day. He was delighted that his party was finally here (he's been waiting a long time, and it's hard for a two year old to wait). He kicked balloons, hugged friends, ate cake and was finally ready for… Continue reading Goodbye two..

Give your heart away..

We often 'metaphorically' talk about giving our heart away (yes George Michael I'm talking about you) but it's a phrase that works very well to describe a feeling. That feeling that a piece of you is with someone else, you have willingly handed it over, and left a space within you for them to fill.… Continue reading Give your heart away..
