Finshers’ pack?

Can I just say that I love Lil-lets? They read my recent post on periods and have sent me this splendiferous teen starter pack for my girls: As well as a plethora of period pads, tampons, and liners, including some so tiny we decided they must be for fairies, they very kindly put in some […]

A bit of a Moment

Sponsored post All that lovely hotness yesterday, when London melted and languished and fanned itself on the hottest day of the year, reminded me of a lovely day out I had right at the beginning of the summer, courtesy of those darling folk at Special K. The reason it felt the same was because I […]

Sponsored Post Are you getting excited about the Olympics? No, me neither. If you live in London, it’s hard to escape the conclusion that moving around the city in August will be like doing a triathalon for all us regular citizens, let alone the athletes themselves. And if you don’t live in London, it’s still […]

Sponsored Post I don’t need to tell you that times are hard. I sometimes wonder how other people manage. I sometimes wonder how I manage mysefl! One way I make ends meet is, occasionally, to do a sponsored post, like this one, which is going to be all about yummy Barclaycard. Ok then, so Barclaycard is […]

Sponsored post It seems like only yesterday that I was having arguments with my girls about orange juice. No, they couldn’t have orange juice on demand, at any moment of the day or night, I used to tell them. My position was that it was bad for their teeth and water is the best drink […]

Sponsored guest post I hardly ever let anyone write a post for me – 99.9 per cent of the witterings you see here are mine alone. But I really liked this post by Carly Morson, suggesting clever ways of keeping yourself together during that whole splitting up/divorcing process. Hope you find it useful. Staying sane […]

Play your cards right …

Sponsored post We’ve just gone through many, many days with the children at home on holiday. And virtually every one of those days, Child One would walk to the local Rymans to feed her seemingly insatiable stationery addiction. Now, I don’t mind this at all. She is a very studious child and, in fact, I […]

Do you need a life laundry moment?

Sponsored post I probably shouldn’t admit this, but one of my most favourite ever TV shows was the Life Laundry. If I were ever offered the chance between seeing a brand new episode of, say, the brilliant, tense, taughtly-plotted Homeland, or an old episode of the Life Laundry, I’d go for LL every time. Yes, […]
