My palm reading experience with PalmistryHD

January 23, 2018 admin 0

I first had my palm read at 18 and it fascinated me. I went with a couple of the girls from work and we had such a giggle. I was told that I would “be a nurse but not a normal one” and that I would “work in education with lots of computers to one side”. At the time I was planning on being a psychologist so this all sounded like utter rubbish to me, […]

Never to late to learn to skate

January 22, 2018 admin 0

One of my favourite reality programmes is Dancing on Ice. I love the costumes, the music, and of course Phil and Holly. But what I think I like the most is that it requires a skill and one that they then perform live in front of an audience. I think what I like about this is that there is less opportunity for the production team to edit the footage and present us with a particular […]

Behind every entrapruener is an annoying little sister

January 16, 2018 admin 0

The other day I read a press release about sweets that were good for your teeth and all I could think was “what a load of rubbish”. Of course you can get sugar free sweets that aren’t necessarily bad for your teeth but that is not the same as declaring them good for your teeth. So, true to character, I obviously had to investigate this further before I outed them for making a ridiculous claim […]

Good bubble, a bath time review

January 15, 2018 admin 0

Bath time is an important part of the bedtime routine,  it helps to calm and soothe a child before going to bed……… ha believe that you will believe anything. Bath time is a time to splash proof the floor, walls and ceiling as you try and convince your child that your bath is not an Olympic size pool and “no you don’t want to see how big the waves are”. It is also a time […]

How to encourage your children to talk about their day

January 8, 2018 admin 11

Sometimes getting children to talk about their day can seem impossible. When I pick the boys up from school I always ask them how their day was and most times I get the same rotation of responses I can’t remember It was fine Good thanks They literally walked out of the building minutes earlier yet they have nothing to tell me about their day. Don’t get me wrong, some days they are full of tales […]

My Year of Giving

January 4, 2018 admin 1

Usually I, like the majority of the UK, make a dozen unrealistic New Years resolutions and then, again like most people, I ditch them all by February and go back to being a cheese eating, wine drinking couch potato, so this year I’m not bothering. Instead I have decided to commit to a year of giving. Giving money, giving my time, giving advice. This isn’t something I decided on a whim but have in fact […]

The parenting resolutions mummies are making today

December 31, 2017 admin 0

As 2017 comes to a close the majority of people will take some time to reflect on the year they have had and make resolutions for the upcoming year. Some people will want to be fitter, some wealthier, some more adventurous but truth be told most people wont stick to their resolutions for more than a few weeks, we are creatures of habit and it’s hard to change.  That being said those that make smaller resolutions […]

Santa’s Rule Book

December 20, 2017 admin 1

Once upon a time someone created the idea that a fat man with a long beard who isolates himself away from the rest of the world spies on us, “he sees us when were sleeping and knows if we’ve been bad or good”. Said fat man, who as it turns out only has one outfit and lives with his wife and 1000’s of tiny people who he makes work in a factory day and night, […]

The gift of alcohol this Christmas

December 19, 2017 admin 0

When buying gifts for people I tend to go for personalised gifts but when this isn’t possible, or I’m simply not organised enough to prepare one in advance then I tend to opt for the gift of alcohol. Now obviously everyone doesn’t drink  but the majority of people in my life do enjoy the odd tipple so alcoholic gifts have saved the day on a few occasions so I thought I would put together a […]
