Getting Fit when you’re Fat

Pretty much exactly a year ago, I was given one of those lovely medicals the NHS has started giving people as they turn 40. Nothing BAD was found, thank goodness, but my GP did sternly tell me that my weight was likely to affect my health more as I got older, and a combination of poor […]

Fresh Air Fixes Everything

Yesterday was one of those days. You know the ones. Where you can’t do right for doing wrong. My ex-husband was annoyed with me. My ex-boyfriend was upset with me. Work plans and school plans and travel plans all collided, and I was left frantically trying to arrange puppy-sitters and rearrange meetings. Colleagues will tell you […]

Why are clothing sizes so stupid?

I bought a new top from Next recently – it was an impulse purchase, one of those, “It’s a blogging event tomorrow, I have nothing clean, this looks okay.”  It was a nice top – green, plain, detailing on the sleeves. So nice, in fact, I decided to buy the same top in blue. I […]

Win a Limited Edition Tiny Tatty Teddy!

Final Tatty Teddy with name

It can’t have escaped your notice that there was a brand new Royal Baby this Bank Holiday weekend.

When I split from my husband, I remember a good friend telling me that divorce isn’t an event – it’s a process. She meant that it’s not something where you can draw a line in the sand and say you’re “done” with it. Because it’s something you do, over and over, separating two lives. And that’s […]

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

“So, what do you want to be when you grow up?” When you’re a kid you get asked that all the time, don’t you? For the record, currently Flea wants to be a marine biologist or an actor. When I was her age, I wanted to be a journalist. I loved to read, and I loved […]

The League of Toaster Crimes

Breville Warburtons Toaster REview

It goes (almost) without saying that there are some big problems facing the world in 2015. But one of the biggest is surely how to make the perfect toast for breakfast. A quick survey of my family reveals our top three toaster catastrophes: Some toasters don’t deliver the perfect level of toastiness. Toast needs to be […]
