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

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 a playdate with me and […]

I need five minutes of your time for an itsy bitsy vote!

Guess What?!!!!!!! I’ve been jumping up and down for the last couple of weeks because I’ve reached the finals in TWO, yes that’s the TWO main parent blogging competitions this year. Thank you to everyone who nominated me! The first is the ‘BiBs’ or Brilliance in Blogging run by Britmums.  I’m up for the ‘Inspire’ category, and thankfully just have […]

Why I’m so chuffed to be nominated in two blogging awards (Plus I need your votes!!!)

I’m extra mega chuffed today. Last week I found out I’d been nominated for the BiBs (BritMums Brilliance In Blogging Awards) for ‘Inspire’ AND ‘Outstanding’; which are rather wonderful things to be nominated for. (vote here) Now I’ve found that I’m also nominated to defend my title as ‘Best Small Business Blogger’ in the MADs (Mum And Dad Blogging Awards from […]

Sparkle Tips: Photos of the Jewelry that Stella and Dot leant me for the MADs awards

I’m a big fan of jewelry, especially anything sparkly!  But when I got my TK Maxx dress, I realised that I was in trouble.  I needed something much more subtle around my neck than I would normally go for, and something more striking on my wrist.  Plus there was a little too much blue going on as well.  As the night […]

I’m a Blogger Blagger, fancy joining me?

So loads of people have been commenting about whether bloggers in general are blaggers, or whether it’s just the new ones, just mummy bloggers or just a small group or large group of them. Then there was a particular incident where a ‘Real Mum’ (how self-righteous is that title) decided to have a go at a Mum who had missed […]

Six Top Tips To Being A Successful Blogger

I’m not here today!  I’m over at Featureworld in an article I was asked to write on Top tips on how I managed to be a successful mummy blogger: http://sellyourstoryuk.com/2011/10/26/success-blogging/ Now I admit to coughing on my cup of tea when Alison asked me to write this post!  I was a bit kind of ‘who me?’.  But then as a few […]

Photo’s of my TK Maxx outfit for the MADs blogging awards

At last I’ve managed to show you the official pictures of my gorgeous TK Maxx dress for the MAD Blog Awards.  I totally learnt two lessons from this: 1) Shop as though someone else is paying, because it made me more imaginative (it wouldn’t actually have cost me more) 2) Go shopping with friends and make the most of your money by looking […]

Video Wed: How Music Reminds Us Of Lovely Places; Wild fitness, Mummy Blogger awards

I was listening to a piece of music yesterday and was instantly sitting on a roof at sunset in Kenya, surrounded by big hairy rugby/hockey players, meditating.  Obviously!  Music is amazing isn’t it, the way it can transport us back in time to places.  It was a really magical holiday. We have no idea how we ended up on this […]

Video Wed: Me Practicing My Losing Gracefully & Humbly Jumping Up And Down Faces

Sally Whittle, the organiser of the MADs Blog Awards, really likes to see me look daft!  I love her blog, and it brightens my day, so here is my present for her! You see, I’ve been wondering whether I should be practicing my faces for the awards ceremony in SIXTEEN DAYS TIME?  Yes, I am ridiculously excited about the whole thing! I’m […]
