Back to the land of work – pros & cons

Dear Lovely Reader It’s been a minute as I’ve not written a post in a while. Things have been quite busy and project abode seems to have taken over every waking minute. Check out pictures of Gem’s room here. Gem started nursery and loves it. I dropped her off one day and she hit the […]

Parisian weekend / A new equilibrium

Last weekend I had a fabulous girly time in Paris. ❤Throb was at a stag do in Edinburgh so we were both doing the hang-out-with-friends for the weekend thing. It was hardcore getting there with tonnes of traffic on the Friday before the bank holiday as I dropped Gem off at her Grandma’s in Coventry. […]

Over 365 days of ticking the married box

However, I’m back and hoping to be fully on […]

£4.50 worth of valuable nerve-racking me-time

In tribute to budgets, George Osborne etc etc, I thought I’d write a post on value for money. I went to the gym for the first time in over 8 months yesterday. I am the kind of girl who used to gym 4 times a week before Gem arrived and even with being preggers, I […]

Hi, my name is X and I’m distinctly average

Last weekend I felt like an average wife, average mum who had an average career. In summary, I was feeling pretty plain mediocre at being me. It was one of those weekends when even a smile from ❤Throb could have gotten him throttled if he wasn’t careful. I just couldn’t bring myself to be nice. […]
