Ahhh January, how I hate you, you bastard. Actually January started off ok for me, but then this week has been a shitty one; I’ve been ill in bed and then just felt lower and lower as the week’s gone by. So seriously, thank F**K it’s Friday.

At the end of November we took a little trip to Ludlow in Shropshire, to visit the lovely Fishmore Hall Hotel and try out their brand new Spa. Fishmore Hall is a privately-owned boutique country house hotel overlooking the town of Ludlow, with lovely views over the Shropshire countryside.

So when Nectar asked me if I would book a last minute trip for my family as part of a ‘Blue Monday Busting Day Out’ challenge, I jumped at the chance. Blue Monday… View Post

I absolutely loved my friend Zara’s post on why she is totally rocking motherhood. She’s an awesome mum; very confident, open, and a lot of fun – they are three very lucky girls. Oh and the food she makes! (check out her Instagram to see) I have asked her before if she would consider adopting me but she didn’t seem too up for it to be honest. The sod! She tagged me to write my own ten reasons why I’m totally… View Post

Being a parent is bloody hard isn’t it. I feel like as a parent we are always expecting it to get better, and easier… We will get more sleep. They will start listening to what we say. But we are raising little people. People who don’t yet understand the world. Who don’t know what is or isn’t acceptable to do or say in public. To whom those things that are little to us can be really big things to them,… View Post
