What can you say?


One of the things that regularly induces toe-curling rage in my house is seeing yet another one of those, “10 Things NEVER to say to…” type articles. I have a reflexive impulse to shout, “Shut up!” at the computer whenever I see one. And they’re everywhere. Eleven things never to say to a working mum. The 20 WORST […]

Spending a night with


The email, when it came, was like manna from heaven. “We want to whisk you away and spend the night with you,” it said. Frankly, given how my life feels at the moment, I’d have said, “Yes please, whisk me now!” no matter who was making the offer. So it was lucky the email actually […]

Living Cheer (Demon) Cheerleader Review


A cheerleader uniform review? No, friends. I have not become a cheerleader (although, obvs, I am very much a cheerleader on the inside). Actually, Flea was recently given the chance to review an authentic cheer outfit from the folks at Living Cheer. This wouldn’t be just any cheerleader outfit – it’s a properly, authentic made-in-the-USA outfit. […]

Home Makeovers Made Idiot Proof with Amazing Spaces

I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest. And Instagram. Well, with pictures on social media generally, if I’m honest. I have two character traits that have led to this sorry state of affairs. First, I’m compulsively nosy and can’t resist peeking inside other people’s houses. Second, I’m completely style-blind and while I swoon over cool interiors […]

The terrible, no good weekend.

It was a bad weekend. Sometimes divorced parenting is just a case of accepting you’ve failed before you open your eyes in the morning. It doesn’t get easier, it just gets more complicated. Flea was upset, I was upset, I’m fairly sure the postman would have been upset, if I’d had a chance to talk […]

Things to do at Beaches Ocho Rios

ocho rios beach

I’ve already written about our first impressions of the Beaches Resort at Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and it’s “luxury included” service. We visited Ocho Rios for three nights during the October half-term, and it was the perfect time to visit – although it might seem a long way to travel for just a week, the weather […]

A Food Tour of Chanthaburi, Thailand


After exploring Rayong, our foodie tour of Thailand rolled along the coast to the region of Chanthaburi. This Eastern part of Thailand is a good four-hour drive from Bangkok, and it’s a true hidden gem – you’ll see virtually no Western faces here. Our first stop was the Kung Krabean Royal Development Study Centre, an ecological […]

Eating around Thailand – Rayong


Hot on the heels of attending TBEX Asia this year, I was invited on a post-TBEX tour by the Tourism Authority of Thailand. The goal? To find out more about some of Thailand’s “undiscovered gems” and to learn more about Thai food. Seriously, what’s not to love? So, the morning after the conference, I joined […]

Old Enough to Know Better in Bangkok


As you may know if you follow me on Instagram, I spent last week in Thailand, as a guest of the Tourism Authority of Thailand. I was there to attend the first TBEX Asia travel blogging conference, and also for a post-conference tour to check out some food and cultural sights in less well-known parts of […]
