Its not all bad – turning the negative to positive

I am currently sat in a hospital bed, I have been here for five days so far and it looks like I will be here for at least five more.  It would be very easy for me to throw a pity party for myself, complain about how depressing it is to be here, away from

Shopping on WISH – A gift guide of things you don’t want to buy

Disclaimer I love Wish, and many nights I find myself looking at random things on there wondering if it’s legit. If there is wine involved I normally hit the buy button and 4 weeks later have a fright when random stuff arrives at my door. This post is not sponsored in any way, nor am

Feeling Duped – When professionalism goes wrong

Content Warning This post contains topics of an adult nature (and I wonder why most of my search terms are about male genitalia!) I would like to make it clear I am not a prude. If you have read my blog before, met me in person or know of any of my hilarious dating fails,

Babies should be delivered with Haynes style manuals, with yearly updates and special add on instruction, bounus additions, for kids who decide to confuse parents even further with their new and exciting kid goings on.

Alcohol and Drinking Culture as Displayed in the Media

I hardly ever drink alcohol, in fact it was 5 years ago the first time I ever got drunk.  I have never been much of a big drinker, I prefer to drink at home than to drink out in public as if I am out I like to be able to drive, and I also

40 things to do before turning 40 – the realistic parents version

I have three years, and seven months to go until I hit 40. This only dawned on me properly recently. I’m getting older, I am the grown up! Turning 30 was not such a big deal, it was marked by a wonderful holiday, but I didn’t feel any different and even now, in my own
