6 Things I Wish I Knew When I Was Diagnosed With Fibromyalgia

I have just been voted one of the top 60 blogs globally (29th!) – how lovely is that! It made me think – what do I wish someone had told me 13yrs ago when I was first diagnosed? So I came up with these top 6 tips, that would have saved me a lot of […]

I Love Awards

Everyone is fab

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 […]

Fibromyalgia Winner

I Love Your Blog

I always used to say at the time of awards ceremony – If you didn’t win there, you will be winning somewhere else, you just need to look for it. It might have sounded trite, as I was clutching my MADs or BiBs awards. But this year I have proved it to be true! I’ve […]

I’ve been shortlisted in the Brilliance in Blogging Awards – Please vote for me!

Thank you so much to who ever nominated me in the BiBs2013, I’ve been shortlisted in the video category! I was a little surprised about this, as it was my plan to really start getting into videos this year, and I didn’t feel I had embraced it properly yet. But it’s given me a boost […]

I’m in the Top 100 Weight Loss Blogs: and need a kick up the butt

Weight Loss Tips For Mums

I was shocked and chuffed to find that I’m No32 in the Top 100 Weight Loss Blogs! That’s a list including people like Jenny Craig and ‘proper’ weight loss organisations, so it’s pretty good going.  I’ve even given all my weight loss blog posts a jolly good polish to celebrate. BUT. There is a problem. […]

Woman and Home Food Bloggers

Ok, so don’t choke on your coffee, but I’ve been picked as one of Woman and Home’s BEST FOOD BLOGS! Yes, I know that’s a bit ironic as I’m a rubbish cook. And I really hope the other foodies aren’t upset, as I know that food blogging is a serious thing in the UK! But […]

Am I a big fat loser?

What is success and failure

So I lost the bid to defend my title from last year in the Small Business Blog award for the Mums and Dads blogging awards *sad face*. Question is, does that make me a big fat loser? And therefore all the rest of the people who lost and all those who didn’t get to the […]

Britmums Live: Winning, What I liked, Outfits and a change to WIN SWAG!

Joe Browns makes great clothes

I WON! OMG I can’t believe I won the ‘Inspire’ category, partially because of what a lovely title it has and partially because of the amazing women I was up against.  I was sure I had no chance, but a couple of my friends were convinced.  However, when they read out the description of the […]

What Happens When You Mix The Mummy Whisperer, Actually Mummy and Verulam Radio Together?

Radio Verulam Radio Interview

It’s just going to be a little chat between me and Helen from Actually Mummy and Dapper Danny Smith from Radio Verulam; what could go wrong? First thing to go wrong was Little Dimples projectile vomiting across the kitchen.  Hence massive clean up required and then crossing of fingers that my neighbour would still like […]
