I was chatting with the gorgeous Danny Smith online about relationships the other day, so we thought we’d talk about it on his drive time radio show on Radio Verulam.
Missed us? You can listen in here (5.30-6pm).
Now I’ve talked about relationships LOADS at times on this blog. But I was thinking, what are the Top 3 tips for finding and keeping a relationship? Here is what I came up with:
1) Love Yourself And Be Clear On What You Deserve
Oh I know it’s cliched. But you need to know why you are wonderful. . . . → Read More: Top 3 Tips For Getting And Keeping Relationship
So for this months chat with Danny Smith at Radio Verulam on his Drivetime show, I thought we’d talk about ways to help you feel more secure in 2014.
(If you fancy listening to us, you can for ONE week only here, I’m at 5.30-6pm).
Christmas is a very stressful time that can make us feel insecure. Plus, although it seems as though the recession is turning around, I think it might take a bit longer to kick in for some parts of the country than others.
Lots of things make us feel secure: friendships, relationships, health, . . . → Read More: My Top 10 Tips for Making Sure You Are Safe And Sound In 2014
It’s been tough, at times over the past few months. I’ve been so busy that I was surprised and really chuffed to be asked to remain as an ambassador for the Forestry Commission (which means I get a membership to Wendover woods).
They sent us a lovely pack with a Stick Man book and a few other goodies, which as the kids already love that book, has gone to my salon for the kids there to enjoy on Mummy Mondays.

I love awards – some people are OK knowing that they are fab, but I must admit I like to be told! I’m much better than I was when I was younger, and I can do some self-patting on the back now; which is healthy I think. But to get an award is lovely.
We had a tough week at the salon this week; we made some awfully difficult decisions now that we know more about our market and restructured letting 5 people go and bringing 1 person in. The team has really come together since then and we are really . . . → Read More: I Love Awards
At the end of the last half-term we took a very excited Curly Headed Boy (nearly 8) and Little Dimples (3.5) to the National Space Centre in Leicester for the first time for the launch of ‘Back to the moon for good’.
Honestly I had absolutely no idea what on earth the launch was about! But I’d wanted to go to the space centre for years, so when they contacted us to go and have a look we jumped at the chance.
Some people suggested that possibly the kids were still a little too young for it all.
Did they like it?

About 6 months ago I decided to cut back on TV watching and banned Cbeebies etc from being on as much. It took me several weeks to discover that Little Dimples (then just turned 3) had worked out to use YouTube – argh!
Not just that, but she had worked out how to stick the headphones on for the computer so that I wouldn’t hear the tell tale signs! Little Minx!
It was during this that she discovered My Little Pony and fell head over heels in love (how she found it I have NO IDEA!). Obviously there is a lot to love – . . . → Read More: Why a ‘cutie mark’ is so important for my daughter
Last month I talked about 5 tips for working out what to do with your life and making a big change with Radio Verulam.
This month I wanted to talk about what gets in the way: FEAR.
A few weeks ago someone asked me ‘Aren’t you scared about opening up your new Salon and Spa‘ – well I was fine until that point! It put me into a bit of a tailspin for a couple of days I can tell you. Since then I’ve seen . . . → Read More: Facing Fear And Not Letting It Ruin You
Kirstie Allsopp Britmumslive
Yay, the summer holidays are over, so I was back over with the gorgeous Danny Smith on Radio Verulam today. Listen again here.
I thought I’d share what I’ve been doing all summer – embracing the Kirstie Allsopp revolution!
I love the whole crafting/upcycling revolution that has been birthed by the recession. I believe that creativity is good for the soul, even if you aren’t a natural at it. Plus it SAVES MONEY! Money which can be spent on other stuff, or that can keep us out of debt. So it’s a good plan!
