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 🙂

Blessed

Shown on BBC1, Fridays 9pm. Written and directed by Ben Elton. Starring Ardel O’Hanion (Father Ted) and Mel Giedroyc (as in ‘Mel and Sue’)

This is actually a hilarious comedy from Ben Elton. Some might think that a program about a couple coping with two young children has already been done before; and it probably has, but not properly like this one. Have you ever actually seen a mother carrying a bit of post-pregnancy weight, and with wet patches on her top from leaky nipples? Somehow this series actually manages to be original by dealing with the actual genuine issues that parents have to deal with; like the stress caused when your toddler loses his special teddy/blanket etc.

The only thing that lets it down is the character called Ronnie whose part is seriously overracted and the word ‘tasteful’ is said far too much.

If you haven’t caught this sitcom yet, watch it this Friday as, if you’ve had children, I’m sure you’ll love it. If you haven’t, I expect you’ll be too smug to bother trying to relate to the main characters!

Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)
October 3, 2018
When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
Slissie review
A chance to curb your cravings? A review of the Slissie
June 5, 2017
This is a new product, so I’ll begin by telling you what on earth a Slissie is! To be honest, it’s a bit difficult to explain, but it’s a weight-loss device that looks a little bit like a vape, and you suck on it like it is a vape, however there’s no actual vapour! Instead, it releases a burst of flavour into your mouth, and the idea is that it will trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten something sweet, and therefore your cravings will be satisfied without actually having the calories of eating anything…..
review of things are what you make of them by adam j. kurtz
A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz
March 21, 2018
Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
