I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Madagascar

Animation starring as the vioces: Ben Stiller, chris Rock, David Scwimmer, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sacha Baron Cohen…This is definitely a film that parents won’t mind paying the full adult price at the cinema to watch a kid’s film. It is really funny the whole way through, and plenty of touches of humour and film references that the children won’t even notice! (Actually several had to be pointed out to me. Look out for American Beauty and Silence of the Lambs to name a couple). I recommend this film and is easily one of the best in its field (in terms of plot and humour, but not so good for the actual graphics side of things) and will appeal to very young children who simply like to watch animals dancing about and talking, and, like I said adults will enjoy this too, so if you’ve teenagers and younger kids too and are on a family trip to the cinema, this film is a very good choice.
A group of animals escape from a New York Zoo and end up ship wrecked in ‘The Wild’! They soon have to adjust to what life is really like for wild animals and realise they had it easy in the zoo.
Did they manage to get rescued and go back? Well, I have to say I would have preferred the other ending to the one they chose, but never mind! My kids were happy with it!

Negotiating lipstick with piercings and a wonky mouth!
March 3, 2017
I have never really worn lipstick. In my mind, it just hasn’t suited me – I have a very thin top lip and and a very fat bottom lip and overall my mouth is very lop-sided. I could happily go on being self-critical, but I won’t! I also think part of the problem is I was trying the wrong colours – brown was very much the fashion in the ’90s when I was playing around with make-up, and although I never really thought lipstick fashions were a thing, I have noticed that brown lipsticks are back….
Exposing a fireplace and other renovating adventures
January 6, 2017
Some of you have been following the renovating side of this blog since we moved in eight and a half years ago; so I thought I’d do a quick update of a couple of the smaller jobs that we’ve done recently. The first clue that there was an old fireplace in our bedroom was the hearthstone that we found when lifting up the beige carpet to reveal the Georgian floorboards. The second clue was the obvious difference in sound when knocking on the wall. The third clue was the whacking great hole behind the plaster when we hit it with a hammer….
mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.
October 26, 2017
Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
