Easter over already?! In which case, I think it’s high time I started writing again. (That’s it, pick yourself back off the floor, as I can tell you’ve fallen off your chair!) It’s been nearly six months now since I last published anything, and it’s been quite shocking to realise just how much I’ve missed it; far, far more than I ever believed I would! So, if not for any other reason than for the fact I really enjoy it and that it makes me happy, I’m giving it a go again. Not entirely certain what I’ll be writing about… View Post

And don’t you agree that Christmas time is the most magical of all? Fortunately for us, we were given the opportunity to have the magic start early for my little girls, as they were cordially invited by none other than Father Christmas himself, to come visit him at his home in Lapland UK, (naturally!), and to assist his elves in making sure the toys were ready for all the little girls and boys who have been good this year.

So. It turns out that I’ve had a trip to New York booked since January this year! Unbeknownst to me. Though for good reason I might add. My wonderful amazing husband surprised me a few weeks ago on the morning of my 40th birthday, with tickets for a four night trip to New York, and a night on Broadway to see Wicked – The Musical, which is something I’ve wanted to see for years. To say I’m surprised and over the moon is a bit of an understatement to say the least. I keep saying to Mikey that I can’t… View Post

I absolutely love wearing nail varnish and having pretty nails. It makes me happy and puts a smile on my face. And when they’re all made up, I feel like a new woman, who would quite happily become royalty (a girl can wish, right?), just so that I could wave them elegantly at everyone as I passed them by. Through the years, all forty of them now (!), I’ve always said my nails have been most probably the best part of my body!  When other parts give me cause to hide away under long or baggy layers, my nails have always been something… View Post
