As many of you lovely readers will know I have been joining in with #Blogtober18 and today’s theme is the ones who couldn’t stay to mark the start of baby loss awareness week.  I wasn’t sure whether to join in today as I have no personal experience of baby loss.  Of course I have friends […]

Day 14 #blogtober18 Never doing that again!

On a day where the rain is pouring and I am feeling a tad hungover after a ball last night my never doing that again could easily just be staying up late and drinking. However, that would just be codswallop as we all know that I love a good night out and so despite it […]

Day 13 #Blogtober18 Movies you have watched a thousand times

If my life were still my own this list of movies I have watched a thousand times would no doubt give away my age… It would be full of the brat pack (if you don’t know who they are you are still young – lucky you!). It would just be classics (my opinion!) like Breakfast […]

Have you noticed that nothing is hand written anymore?  Not even a party invitation.  It is all either online, emailed or printed.  No one writes letters anymore and whilst I don’t really either I think it is a shame that just as video killed the radio star; email killed the letter.   We do still […]

How to help your kids learn to read

#Blogtober18 Day 7 #DYSPRAXIAAWARENESSWEEK

Today the theme for #blogtober18 is Gross Motor Skills as part of #dyspraxiaawarenessweek.  I don’t know much about dyspraxia.  Of course I have heard of it, but have not had any personal experience of the condition.  I almost decided to write about something else today, but then I thought about it and realised that this […]

#Blogtober18 Day 6 Forest Creatures

So today is Day 6 of #blogtober18 and the theme is forest creatures as it is #nationalbadgerday. Firstly I am feeling a bit left out as it seems everything has a national day apart from me.  Do you #nationalharassedmotherday could become a thing? Or is that already covered by mother’s day? Secondly I had planned […]
