Love The Little Things #19

Wow, what a fab week it has been. It kicked off in Manchester on Saturday celebrating a friends 40th with drinks followed by gorgeous food in Neighbourhood. We were there so long chatting and supping champagne (courtesy of the birthday girls husband) we got asked to leave as we had hogged the table too long and the next booking was now running 30 minutes late. Oops! Read The cocktail menu in Cloud 23. I started off with champagne tasters, followed by a fancy gin cocktail which I can’t remember the name of. I love the views of Manchester being up…

Wakey Wakey, Rise and Shine!

I’ve never been a morning person. Just ask my mum, she’ll back me up. As a teenager my dad was banned from speaking to me for at least half an hour after I woke up. His cheery banter was the last thing I needed first thing! Occasionally he’d give it another go, to see if I’d mellowed, only to receive a withering look from mum and probably a slammed door from me (stroppy mare that I was). I love my bed, at all times of the day. Nothing better than a sneaky afternoon nap tucked up in bed, although these…

My 1st Years Review – Happy Apple Spoon & Fork Set

I was recently contacted by My 1st Years and asked if I would choose an item from their website to review. I was delighted to have been asked as they have some absolutely gorgeous personalised baby clothes, blankets and toys (and much more besides) with the added bonus that they can have your little ones name added to it. As the name would suggest a lot of the items are aimed at younger babies and toddlers, and as O is now approaching 2 and a half he seemed too old for a few things. Although, that didn’t stop me wondering…

The Final Countdown

In less than 4 weeks time thousands of Year 11 pupils across the country will be starting their study leave. For many of those students they will already have sat quite a few of their exams as it all kicks off 2 weeks on Monday. Scary stuff!! The kids are now starting to panic as it dawns on them that the past 5, no 11, years of schooling have been building up to these next few weeks. I love this time of year. It’s hectic, it’s mad busy, but there’s a different kind of buzz about school. Suddenly the after…
