We are off to France, on a car ferry and then driving to our destination at the other end. It’s been yonks since I went to France, and I’ve never driven on the Continent, so I read up.
It’s common knowledge that you need some extra car kit to drive legally in France, but a new law, enforced at the beginning of July, means that as well as the high viz jackets, hazard triangle and headlight deflectors, you also have to carry breathalysers. At the moment, les gendarmes are going relatively easy on unprepared tourists, but why flout the rules? French motorways are not free, so have some money to hand for tolls. It goes without saying that a route map or sat nav is important as well.
Anyway, since a lot of my posts about nos vacances will be vlogs, I thought I’d start how I meant to go on. Shot and edited by my lovely husband, enjoy! Read more
Another video this week, and I thought I’d make one even though there is no linky this week.
You can probably tell from the video, I am feeling a little bit meh today. It’s probably a mix of the crapola weather and the garbled emotions I have been feeling about my little lady’s impending start at infant school. So it’s not my best, sozzles.
This week I’ve done something a little different. I have made a video of what I wore today. And, for good measure, I threw in an embarrassing anecdote about the underwire making a bid for freedom on the school run yesterday, AND how that led me to find some fantabulous bargains on brand new over-shoulder-boulder-holders today.
I hope you like it.

This bank holiday weekend, not only did I celebrate Queenie being on the throne for sixty years, with a fabulous street party and lots of patriotism, I also celebrated my birthday. I’m twenty eight.
Since before I had my babies, my birthday has always left a little to be desired. It was completely my own fault, I went through a phase of getting really upset about my birthday and hiding from people each year. I purposefully didn’t celebrate Read more
I was tagged by Amanda weeks ago to do a meet and greet in time for Britmums Live. I finally found the time to get on it, and here it is:
Hmm well, I know I ought to tag people but my feeling is, if you want to do this, you will, and if you don’t, a tag isn’t going to make you join in.
If you are going to Britmums Live, and feel inclined to take part in this meme, I’ve posted the rules and questions, as set out by A Boy With Aspergers. Read more
I’ve been meaning to post about this since last Thursday night, but I’ve been busy with my sister visiting and my Grandad’s birthday party, so it has waited until now.
If you read this, you’ll know I went back to work on a very very part time basis back in February. When I say I went back to work, I mean, I work one day a week with my husband at our video production company. I spend the day doing a fair bit of social media stuff; I tweet, I write the odd blog post, I send out email newsletters to clients and I do a bit of admin. He does the cool stuff; the filming, the editing, and networking.
Recently there had been some very quiet whispers that we might do a bit of work with some of the Made In Chelsea cast, through an agency we’ve got pretty chummy with lately. Read more
