Guess what I’m doing today? Go on, you’ll never guess…


I know right? Me? Crafts?

Today I’m going to show you how to make a Donna Wilson Mitten Kitten phone cosy, as part of a blog tour for Donna’s new book – Creative Creatures. If you are a crafty type person, you will love this book. If you’re not a crafty type person you’re still very welcome to read the post and have a laugh at my expense.  View Post

Are you a UK blogger?

Do you fancy getting paid to go shopping?

Excellent. Read on…

I’ve started a new job this month working for a US company called Collective Bias. Collective Bias work with brands and bloggers, sending bloggers out on paid shopping missions. Their blogging community is called Social Fabric, and it’s basically the place where their bloggers hang out online, chat, share stories, that sort of thing. My job is to bring Social Fabric to the UK, and I’m looking for UK bloggers to join the community and take part in shopping campaigns.

I’ve always been a massive fan of YeoValley, and not just because the let me drive a tractor. I just think there are some companies that are Nice and Proper, you know what I mean? They make you feel good about buying and eating their products, and I never even minded getting stuck behind their lorries on my old Bridgwater to Bath commute.

Yeo Valley is launching a new Limited Edition yogurt, with a delicious and zingy 0% Fat Lemon and Poppy Seed flavour and thanks to me (tada!), you could win some. In fact, you could win more than just yogurt… View Post

Now, I’m not one to judge, but in this case, I actually am a judge, so I think it’s OK.

I’ve been asked to be a judge in a competition being run by Jeego, where you have to submit funny things your kids say and the winner has their expression turned into an animated e-card. Now obviously they chose me because I am hilarious and so a good judge of what’s funny. Either that or I was the only person to say yes. Pretty sure it’s the first one though. View Post

There was a smell in the air. A smell that I can’t describe – a freshness that adds a little smile to your face, a smell of snowdrops and birdsong that means you just know that spring is coming.

It was the perfect afternoon then for a half term outing.

Belle had a friend to play on Friday afternoon, so rather than just let them spend four hours taking turns to watch each other play on Belle’s DS, I decided to take them out on a spy trail. Now of course if I were a Proper Mummy I would have spent the night beforehand writing out ingenious clues and hiding them around Bristol, but fortunately we had a trail from Treasure Trails.
