A new member of the family

Flea has been asking for a dog since she was three. One of my fondest memories is this letter that she made me when she was in reception class. It was a letter all about how I am the BEST Mummy in the whole wide world, and how much she loves me.   When I asked […]

Worst day ever?

Long-time readers will know that I have, let’s call them, “issues” with teeth. While some people have anxiety dreams about being naked and missing exams, I wake up in a cold sweat after dreaming all my teeth have fallen out. This, combined with a less than ideal dental experience in my early 20s (I had […]

Sartorial Panic Attack.

So rather wonderfully, someone has nominated me for the Debrett’s 500 – a list of the UK’s 500 most influential and inspiring people across a range of industries. Thanks, Mum. As with all these things, it’s nice to be nominated, and although the final list won’t be published for a few weeks yet, I’ve been […]

The One with That Call

So the call comes around 2pm. You know the call. The one you hope you never get. “Hi, it’s the school here. Flea has had a bit of an accident.” The teacher explains that somehow, during PE, Flea was hit in the head with a hockey ball, it’s quite a nasty bump, and the nurse has […]

Well, this sucks.

It’s a little after 10am, and I’m sitting at my desk, sipping coffee and trying to pry toast crumbs from between the keys on my keyboard. I am not eating a mince pie, lounging on the sofa watching an 80s movie, or heading out for an adventure. And I’m not with Flea. Here’s the thing: […]

Review: Peugeot 5008

IMG_1293

Just before Christmas, the rather nice people at Peugeot got in touch and asked if we’d like to try out the Peugeot 5008 compact MPV. As it happened, I was planning a day trip to the Warner Bros Studio Tour with Flea and two of her friends, and I figured this was the perfect opportunity […]

2014: Little Moments

pic22

For me, life is all about little moments. I’m not one of those people who thinks happiness is a destination – it’s a moment, a day, a feeling. One of my favourite things about blogging is the ability to capture those moments and turn back to them during times when life isn’t quite so much fun. […]

20 Movies from the 80s Your Kids will Love

COVER

You have a few important jobs as a parent. There’s feeding, clothing and protecting your child from physical harm, of course. And (very) close behind these things is ensuring you don’t allow your children to think that Beverly Hills Chihuahua represents what good cinema is all about. Over the past couple of months, Flea and […]

Making a Difference in Tanzania

Earlier this month, I travelled to Tanzania with Coca Cola. Undoubtedly it’s a beautiful country – the beach at the top of the post is in Zanzibar, and I’m not sure I’ve ever stood in a more picture perfect spot. But the picture postcard only tells a fraction of the story. Life in Tanzania is […]

Warner Bros Studio Tour: Hogwarts at Christmas

hogwartsinthesnow7

I love the run-up to Christmas, when work starts to slow down and it’s easier to find time for fun family activities. This year, I wanted to treat Flea to a day out with her friends to celebrate the end of term, and so we booked tickets to visit the Warner Bros Studio Tour for their […]
