Christmas Time 

Sooooo I’ve almost finished my Christmas shopping… In October… It’s OK, you can hate me. I sort of just got carried away and went for it on my day off on Wednesday. I would have finished completely if my sister had been able to decide what she wanted in time. Apart from a minor issue with Argos, whose customer service was totally not up to scratch, this year’s shopping was...

10 Little Things You Take for Granted Before Becoming a Mum

When I was pregnant with Cameron I had the usual ‘helpful’ advice from others. “Stock up on sleep now because you won’t get any for years once they’re born” and “Try and enjoy your pregnancy, this is the calm before the storm”.

10 Times it Sucks to be Female 

Sometimes I love being a girl. There’s nothing better than a day spent clothes shopping, followed by being pampered at a spa and going for a couple of Proseccos.
