You might remember back in January when I had a few too many glasses of Prosecco and signed myself and my other half up to do a half marathon, I couldn’t even run a kilometre back then and quickly regretted the decision! Not one to back out of a drunken mistake I actually decided that hell yes I can do that and started on a training programme to get me across the finish line! 13.1 miles is a BLOODY LONG WAY and the time is almost here for me to actually do it! Our summer has revolved around training, training and more training and to date I have clocked up over 650KM. I’m tired, really tired but I know I can do this! Read more
I’ve been blogging here now for seven years and those seven years have brought us some incredible opportunities but the one I am going to tell you about today is probably one of our favourites! Bugs was asked by the lovely people at Petplan to design his very own dream pet. Well he spent ages thinking about this, not satisfied with an ordinary pet he finally designed his very own pet monster called Patch… Read more
This last week has been absolutely lovely, lots of really special moments as my 40th birthday celebrations continued. I am so excited by the future at the moment as I have so many lovely things planned but I also have so much work and organising to do so much not get too carried away enjoying myself 😉 I am starting to learn Italian tomorrow evening and next Sunday is my first half marathon! Please keep your fingers crossed for me and if you would like to sponsor me then you can do so here! All bloggers and small businesses that sponsor me get a thank you link in my sidebar until the end of the year 🙂
I’m running a bit late with my #project365 this weekend because James whisked me away for the weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday. My wonderful friend had the kids for three nights and we got to have an amazing weekend in the Lake District. Today it is back to earth with a bump! So much to do and so little time!
A yummy snack called Knoppers have just launched in the UK and today we are going to tell you all about them!

Storck are the brand behind Knoppers who have previously brought us Werther’s Originals, Toffifee, Riesen and Bendicks. Read more
Wow I can’t believe it’s now September!! Today is my last ever day in my thirties!!!! Yes tomorrow I will be 40! That is insane! The blog will be 7 next week too! I’m really ready for the kids to go back to school tomorrow so I can get some organisation back into my life. I love them being at home but any kind of routine we have flies out of the window for the summer and my house looks like a bomb site so I might be spending my 40th cleaning the house 😉 Read more
I don’t know about you but the summer holidays really wear me out. This year more than any other year because not only have I got the kids at home every day and we are trying to pack our days with lots of fun activities, I’m also trying to keep on top of work and train for my half marathon next month too! So as you can imagine I am pretty much running on empty at the moment. Read more
