My favourites of 2017

My favourites of 2017

Hello again, I hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas! Surprisingly to some, I’ve only had this blog since the beginning of the year. I’m proud of where I’ve got to with it so far. The end of the year always brings with it a pensive mood. I don’t usually take the time at the end of each year to reflect on what’s happened. However, this year I feel that it’s important to.

This year, we’ve lost people some people who were very dear to us. Going into 2018 feels like taking yet another step further away from them, in some respects. However, as sad as it may be, life does go on. They wouldn’t want me to be sitting here dwelling on them. They’d want me to look at the positives, knowing that they’ll always be in my heart and remain a part of me as the years progress. My long-forgotten New Year’s Resolution was to be more positive this year. So here we go, let’s go out with a final big bang of positivity with my favourites of this year! View Post

10 little things that make me happy

10 little things that make me happy

I was tagged by the lovely Becca at My Girls and Me to write a blog post about 10 little things that make me happy. You can read her post here.

I’m writing this at a time that the attacks on Manchester are still very fresh in people’s minds. However, it’s important to remember that even at times of adversity, good can be seen. It’s important to remember not to take life for granted and focus on the little things that make you happy. View Post

Planning a blogging event in London

Planning a blogging event in London

I’m fairly new to the world of blogging ‘properly’. Although I’ve actually had blogs on and off for the last 12 years, this is the first time I’ve got involved in the community, social media and concerned myself with things like SEO! However, I have big hopes and dreams. After meeting amazing bloggers and companies at the press launch of This Morning Live, Rochester Sweeps Festival, This Morning Live and The Baby Show, I’m really looking forward to going to Blog On in September. However, I would love to host my OWN blogging event somewhere down the line! Here are some of my thoughts on how I might approach it. View Post

A letter to my daughter at 7 months old

A letter to my daughter at 7 months old

Dear Autumn,

I say this every month, but time is going much too fast! It seems barely any time has passed since I was writing a letter to you at 6 months old! You’re so big now, it hurts my back to carry you. Nanny found my book from when I was a baby and you weigh around 3lbs more than I did when I was your age!

What a good girl. When you came out of hospital after being seriously ill, I kept telling you to drink your milk. I told you that it would make you grow big and strong! Here we are almost half a year later and you’re doing so well. View Post
