Muller – Wunderful Stuff

MÜller are here bringing us wÜnderful stuff to our lives. Who better to bring wÜnderful things than our old favourites Mr Men and Little Misses joined by Kitt the car and Yogi Bear.

To start off with I would do it anywhere, anytime and any how but now I a little bit more experienced I tend to stick to the same old really, a bit boring I suppose. I used to do … Read entire article »

Dairy Diary 2012 Review

Dairy Diary 2012 Review

This review is a trip down memory lane for me so when Lauren asked if I would like to review the 2012 Dairy Diary I really couldn’t say no. My Mum for years had Dairy Diaries. Every year when she received her Diary then delivered by the milkman, I would open it up and scour the contents for the recipes. I think looking back I have always been a bit of a recipe junky, of course the … Read entire article »

Basket Love

Basket Love

I am not sure if I should have titled this ‘Basket Love’ or ‘Basket Case’ but I have always been a bit partial to a basket. I See any kind of basket and I am instantly drawn to it. I put it down to my lovely wicker chair I had as a child and the fact my Mum always used a wicker shopping basket. Thinking of that I remember the love of having to have … Read entire article »

Help For Heroes Everest Challenge

I always admire people when they take up challenges to raise money for charity but for some the challenge they take can be that much harder. Jonathon is on a 19 day expedition, covering 75 miles and taking him up a massive 17,590 feet up the highest  in the mountain in the world, Mount Everest. What makes this more amazing challenge is that Jonathon four years ago was told he would never walk again after a gunshot wound inflicted in Iraq left him paralysed. Jonathon in his day-to-day life faces pain and challenges with his disability. He will be joined by his Dad, who along with the Energizer support team, who are sponsoring Jonathon, will give him the support he needs to succeed. Jonathon also hopes to raise awareness for the need for … Read entire article »

Gift giving fails

Gift giving fails

When I think about Christmas and the whole present thing, I think I like giving more than receiving. I love choosing presents for people and fingers crossed presents that they really will love! Last year I felt like I did a massive fail on my brother. For one of his present’s I brought him and what I thought would be massive fun was one of these. Now I thought being his sometimes child like nature, the fact … Read entire article »

Dear Bully

Two different letters from two different view points.   Dear Bully, Have you ever thought to stop doing what you’re doing making people’s lives miserable? For once in your life stop keeping this pathetic almost invincible act up it may fool some people, but others like myself can see right through you and that’s the only reason I am coping! What does it really achieve calling people names, spreading rumors about them, excluding them and bad mouthing them it’s not going to get you a job or a good exam grade it won’t make your life any better.  One day the popularity will slip through your fingers when you finally take it one step to far. When I look at people like you I almost feel sorry for you, the fact you have to hurt … Read entire article »

Visit Finland

Visit Finland

Christmas for me is home. One of my Christmas day wishes would have to be that it’s cold and frosty and snow please for an extra bonus! So for me if you said I had to choose somewhere to go on holiday for Christmas it would have to be somewhere like this. I don’t think I would necessarily be choosing to go for a icey dip or rolling in the snow with just my underwear on. … Read entire article »

Blog Prompt – Inspirational Bloggers

Blog Prompt – Inspirational Bloggers

The blog post prompt at Britmums this week is Thanks Giving and the bloggers prompt is inspirational bloggers, so my blogger for me has to be Penny from Alexander Residence. I am by nature quite a stressy person, admittedly disorganised so for me a visit to Penny’s blog is always a pleasure. Despite the sad loss of her Mum at the beginning of this year, who I also feel like I know, even though I did … Read entire article »
