Bad Mum V Bad Employee

“Bring me sunshine, in your smile” The ringtone had woken me as my Son phoned me from his bedroom that morning. His voice sounded overly pitiful as he said that he felt unwell and didn’t want to go to school.  It was snowing outside and he had an hour long bus ride, followed by a…

Ausfahrts around Germany

Last weekend my Husband and I drove from Hamburg to the borders of Holland – by accident. Doh!! How in the hell can someone drive all that way by accident? I hear you pondering this and we wondered the same thing in dumbfounded disbelief for many hours, until eventually we found the cause; but we…

London Blogging Baby

What a weekend!!! Last weekend I hit London with my new husband for a weekend of fun, inspiration and adventure – we had a blast! I had been a very lucky lady and received two tickets to the Vuelio Blog Awards for the 30th November. I was ecstatic, especially given I have been unable to…

Are you getting married soon?  Have you begun planning already?  Here’s some advice from someone who has just been there and done that – Me. My man and I started hitting the local wedding fayres about 9 months before we actually married.  We had no set date in mind, we had an idea of where…

Hen Parties, Races and the Cheese Factor

No sash, no badges, no inflatable penises, no strippers, no tutus, no tiaras and no hen party traditional tat.  That was my explicit instructions to my hens, but did these chicks listen? Did they shite! My Maid of Honour spent many frustrating weeks trying to get some sort of idea from me as to what…

Dead Bones & Dickhead Dancing

Don’t ask me how I have dead bones – I have absolutely no idea!  So far, it’s just in my knees although the knock on effect makes me feel like my entire skeleton is fecked and I am one fall away from a mobility scooter.  The reality is probably more like, I am one fall…

Death by Cheesecake – Literally

So a few months back, I was stupid.  I played chicken with a cheesecake and lost. I thought that ordering a cheesecake, knowing full well that I am allergic to dairy and wheat, was risky, but I weighed up the options as I sat alone in the pub / restaurant / my office watching other…

Welcome to my newly re-launched Blog

“Where have I been” you ask? Well, did you miss me?  Did you even notice I’d gone?  As much as I’d love to step out on a stage, open my arms wide and scream “I’m Baaaaack” to thousands of adoring fans / readers / followers / stalkers before dropping the mic and throwing kisses to…

The Easter Proposal

Easter time already?  As I am wandering round our estate, two kids & pug in tow, waiting on the text message from Hubs allowing us back home, I couldn’t help feeling an old fogey style amazement at how quick the year had flown. Exactly one year ago to the very hour, the kids and I…

Tenerife. Day 3. Karaoke Night

I’m so jealous of my Hubby.  He got to sing karaoke with the King. The audience loved it! We had decided that Saturday night was to be the late night party night.  The kids were all for it, my man & I were all geared up for it, by 5.30pm we had found the perfect…
