The disappointment of Facebook

The world and their great aunt are on Facebook, which means a melting pot of tastes, interest, religions, political views – horses for courses has always worked well for me; but what happens when content on Facebook is plain wrong? This morning I saw a status by an old school Friend, Siobhan about a Facebook […]

Halloween Boo

Halloween: The Boo Debate

It’s just over a week away until Halloween (like you need me reminding you!) and I still haven’t decided whether we’re ‘doing it’. As a child we never celebrated Halloween and I never really got it as an adult with all the fancy dress and ghoulish parties; I was pretty sure nothing would change with […]

Astral

Astral Review

Astral is one of those products that I immediately associate with my Grandma – I have fond memories as a child of playing at her dressing table with her vintage popper beads, her rings and her face cream. So when I asked to try Astral I didn’t expect much; I’m a sucker for sophisticated and […]

Where Should I Spend The New Year?

Whether you like it or not the festive season is fast approaching and with the majority of my Christmas shopping done (yes I am that annoying type of person who likes everything done and dusted by the end of October) and plans for the big day all sorted, it’s time I turn my attention to […]

Thomson The Dog

Thomson Family Resorts: The Mummy and Boo Lowdown

Unless you’ve been hiding in a cave last week me and Boo jetted off to Majorca with Thomson to see what their Thomson Family Resorts had to offer. Despite living not a million miles from Gatwick, Thomson very kindly arranged for us to stay at the Sofitel Hotel (it’s literally attached to the North Terminal […]

Boo in a hospital gown

A Hard Week and a Shed Load of Saying Sorry

The last week has been one of the hardest ever. Lots of pain, lots of tears, lots of unknowns. Boo’s operation was textbook if not distressing but the 12 hours that came after were a rollercoaster of emotions and worry. Her heartbeat was so high it had the doctors worried; we still don’t know exactly […]

Boo's heart monitor on her toe

Boo’s Operation: An Update

It was Boo’s operation today, she didn’t like it (find me a 2 year old who does!) but seemed to be recovering well eating toast and chatting about going home. Then she took an unexpected turn for the worse so we’re staying put for another night while they monitor her heart and bloods. Deep down […]

Boo's Operation

Boo’s Operation

I’ve been putting it off, writing this post; I should have written it weeks ago but somehow seeing it in black and white made it all the more real. Today Boo’s being admitted to the Royal Free Hospital ready for an operation tomorrow morning. It’s no secret that she’s had a fair few health hurdles […]

Run to the Beat Nike

Nike Run To The Beat: Operation Yummy Mummy Just Got Crazy

It’s 29 days until the Nike Run To The Beat half marathon. Why is this important – well until 2.30pm yesterday afternoon it wasn’t however I received an e-mail to say I’d won a competition and the prize was a place on the half marathon. I was and still am in shock. Yes you’ve read […]

Mummy and Boo's Room 101

Room 101

Last night Cas from Mummy Never Sleeps tagged me (in an evil manner I may add!!) for the Room 101 linky. I love how Cas gave the brilliant explanation of what Room 101 is – from it’s creation by Orwell in 1984 as a room that houses your deepest, darkest, nightmares and how it was […]

Out to Lunch

Organix Out to Lunch League Table Launch

A couple of weeks ago me and Boo were invited to the Out to Lunch League Launch hosted by Organix and the Soil Association. The Out To Lunch report includes 21 restaurants, from multinational fast food chains to celebrity restaurants and ranks them in how well they provide the overall experience to families, including aspects […]
