Notices first! We have already left for our holiday so this will be my last List post for 3 weeks. The lovely Aby, from You Baby Me Mummy, will be holding down the fort with the help of Amy, Mr and Mrs T Plus Three, (on 7th and 14th August) and Kate, Pouting in heels (on 21st August). Thank you ladies!! xxx

Real Life

The List Week 47 - wet week!

What a wet week! Aside from Sunday morning when we were able to eat breakfast alfresco, it’s been a washout. Entertainment has included the cinema to see the Minions Film, daily views of Despicable Me 2 – minions are a big fav in the house at the moment – (badly) baking cakes and a touch of boat making. I had time off on Monday for good behaviour and had an amazing spa day with my buddy Emily from Piccalo Bambino – fizz and all!

Blog Life

I am exhausted and ready for a blog break. I’ll be dotting about but basically I’m taking August off to regroup, rethink and come back refreshed in September!


This week I’ve been reading Gretchen Rubin’s (of the Happiness Project) new book, called Better Than Before. It’s fascinating! All about habit formation and relating it to your personality type, completely up my street!
