Throwback Thursday – My Mum and Me 

Last night I had an awful dream. I dreamt that my mum had died and I was left without her.  I have a good idea as to why I dreamt this, I had just been to see Me Before You at the cinema with my mum and this combined to bring me my bad dream.  The thing is, as much as this was just an unpleasant dream for me fortunately,...

Wedding Wednesday – Shredding for the Wedding 

Right, hold your horses. I’m clearly not doing this just yet. At almost 6 months pregnant I am just about doing the opposite of what I’m about to write about. I’m eating plenty (sadly some of the stuff I’m eating plenty of isn’t that good for me but pregnancy is the one time I fully allow myself what I want so meh).  This is a guide for those other brides...

Monday Musings – Politics Isn’t my Forte 

So, as the title suggests, politics really isn’t my strong point, and I am not writing this post with any expertise involved whatsoever.  I wasn’t sure whether to write about the political situation or avoid it like the plague but when my Monday musings post came up I thought, well what am I thinking about more than the events following Friday’s rather shock result of the EU referendum.  I voted...

Foodie Friday – Why I Won’t be Returning to Harvester 

So please bear with me on this post as it does revolve around food, but maybe isn’t exactly what you were expecting. Please do go and visit my Instagram page for lots of yummy food pics to make up for it.  So on Sunday, for Father’s Day, the kids and I headed out to celebrate with Ed, who not only is a brilliant step daddy to my two children but...

Throwback Thursday – 10 Things I Miss Since Becoming a Mum 

So last night I went out for a much needed catch up meal with my ‘mum’ friends, the girls I met at antenatal classes when pregnant with Carly.  During the meal, we discussed the usual mummy kind of things that no longer phase us during eating such as toilet habits of our offspring and how little sleep we got the night before.  So for this week’s throwback post, I thought...

Celebrating Ed’s Birthday 

On Tuesday it was Ed’s birthday. As he had work, the children and I made him a birthday cake the night before and presented it to him in the morning along with his birthday presents and card.  I met Ed straight from work and we went to ‘our’ bar – Eden. I had the yummiest non-alcoholic mojito, something I have loved since I’ve been pregnant and Ed had a very...

Wedding Wednesday – Wedding Day Timeline 

Something I get asked a lot as a wedding coordinator is the suggested timings of a wedding day. It’s a question I’ve often seen asked on the many wedding Facebook pages I follow and on wedding forums too.  Obviously there are a variety of factors that will affect your timings, and these along with personal preference should always be considered. For example, my own wedding next September is going to...

Monday Musings – My Facebook Mini-Break

A Facebook mini-break is nowhere near as exotic as it sounds. I’ve known for some time that I’ve become a little over dependant on social media, Facebook specifically. Being a blogger does mean you rely on social media more than some people but I felt my addiction had gotten a little unhealthy.  When my phone battery malfunctioned and I had to get a new phone from the Apple Store I...

Ten Ways I Fail at Being a Typical Twentysomething Blogger 

Before I start, please be assured I am not against the following traits in bloggers my age. Mostly I wish I were more like those bloggers but I’m just… not. This blog post came to me whilst showering and I literally ran out naked to type it up, so there’s a fun fact for you (and something that probably actually does make me quite a typical blogger ironically).  1. I...
