The L’s say “I do”

The K-D’s are off on a mini adventure this weekend (I hope Pilchard the Cat doesn’t read this and throws a wild party.) We’re lucky enough to be attending the wedding of Laura Rook and Lee Lewis (not forgetting its really Lexi’s day, with Leni patiently sitting there smiling.) As with every wedding you generally … Continue reading

Mid-life Crisis

To any outsider I probably look like I’m having a mid-life crisis. I agree that some activities I’ve partaken in this year are not dissimilar to those I dabbled in 15 years ago. Now, now you dirty buggers……haul your mind out of the gutter and I shall explain…. 1. I got a new tattoo. Something … Continue reading

DKD’s Animal Spectacular

DKD’s Animal Spectacular

For Dexter’s 2nd birthday we decided to host a party at our home in our brand new sparkly garden. Dex is mad on animals so we thought an animal theme would be ideal, and I love dressing up so what better than for all the kids to come dressed as their favourite animal! I created … Continue reading

Guess Who’s 2?

Guess Who’s 2?

DKD is 2 years old! Blimey we have a 2 year old. An official toddler. A little man that runs around being all little manly. Our son, our world, our absolute everything, what did we spend our money on before you? He’s amazing (obviously biased). He’s like this mad, bubbly, nutty little dude that has … Continue reading

I’ve got my reasons

I’ve just returned from a break from Facebook. I was away for almost a month and it was nice and relaxing however I felt like the social leper that’s never invited to parties. I gave myself a break because I was sick of racist, ignorant comments on my timeline following the Woolwich attack. I was … Continue reading


Guilt is a funny old thing. I seem to be constantly wracked with guilt. Not the stomach churning guilt that I experienced as a kid when I got caught nicking some Fruit Pastilles (sorry Mum); but small pangs of guilt, 5 days a week when I leave my baby boy and go off to work. … Continue reading

Happy New Year

When reflecting over the past year its easy to forget the small little details that make our memories. This year however has been full to the brim of big events. We saw friends tie the knot and live happily ever after. Irreversible damage was done to my kidneys on at least one of the 500 … Continue reading

A Friend is for Life…

Ok I might be a bit drunk but I’ve had the best day with lots of old friends and I feel incredibly festive (and warm and fuzzy from the wine.) Family K-D had lunch with the majority of the old gang (minus Bo who was seriously missed). Dex behaved, as did the OH. It was … Continue reading

To all our loved ones……

This year we’ve decided not to send Christmas cards, instead we’ve made a donation to the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal. Our donation could provide a bed for someone who is homeless for 3 weeks. The money could also go towards helping them making a fresh start in the New Year. Being able to help other … Continue reading


You see this boy? He’s my world. He and everything about him means everything to me. If he’s under the weather I’m there for him, if he’s up in the night I’m (almost) always there for him, if he wants a cuddle I give him one. I’m a mum now and I have responsibilities. Those … Continue reading
