Dearest Raffie – Thank You For Coming Out Of Me!

Dearest Raffie, Thank you for coming out of me! This day last week we were waiting and waiting for you. We’d thought, since Friday when my waters had broken on the threshold of Mothercare, that you were imminently arriving. I’d been contracting all day after a few stop starts and once again they had suddenly stopped about 3pm so, for the second time, we reluctantly agreed to a hospital visit for a trace… I was so desperate to have a home […]

The LEGO NINJAGO Movie IS HERE – Review!

Never have I willed a baby to stay inside and not make its appearance so badly than last weekend when we were invited, ahead of general release, to a very special screening of the new LEGO NINJAGO movie with a super exciting Spinjitsu masterclass preceding the main event hosted by TV’s Dick and Dom and instructed by Olympic master, Jade Jones! Jimmy was beside himself with glee at the thought of seeing the movie of his favourite, absolute bestest EVER programme […]

Beautiful – The Carole King Musical Tour – Norwich Theatre Royal Review!

About a year and a half ago Jonny surprised me with tickets to go and see Beautiful, the Carole King Musical in London. He knew I was missing ‘home’ (we’d JUST left the capital for Norfolk) and he knows Carole is one of my favourite artists ever. It was a bold, yet uncharacteristic move which earned him many, many brownie points. This sort of behaviour was unprecedented, had never happened before and hasn’t happened since but it was such a […]

Technically my due date is not until the day after tomorrow (5th October 2017) but having gone from believing the Doctors dates to be wrong and expecting this child to evict my body a good couple of week’s ago and knowing that by this amount of days pre due date with my other two and I had already given birth, it’s […]

Sweet Figgy Ginster Cocktail Recipe With 31Dover!

I’ve been at the gin cocktail making again and for this month have gone down a more Autumnal route as the weather is decidedly on the change and fresh produce is definitely moving from sunnier days into more brisk and crisp flavours. As per my wont the gin I’m using comes from 31 Dover, the online delivery booze place which comes up with the goods for the very next day and actually, at the moment has some pretty fantastic deals to be […]

NUM NOMS Launch Series 4!

Num Noms are scented collectible characters which contain lip gloss or nail polish. There’s actually way more to it than just this and my daughter would be rolling at her eyes of my basic description but there we are… This is how important they are to me and that is how important they are to her. VERY! She flipping loves them! They are actually perfect pocket money fodder and can be bought as lone items or in packs – something which […]

Blood Brothers National Tour – Norwich Theatre Royal – Review!

It’s not every day you’ll see a theatre experience a full house standing ovation,. I’m talking every single bottom from every single seat and with the audience in tremendous raptures! However, last night’s performance at Norwich Theatre Royal, opening night for the Norfolk leg of the national Blood Brothers tour, saw just that! I saw just that. I was part of just that. And I left the theatre smiling from ear to ear as I and the rest of the evening’s audience spilled […]
