*that I would REALLY love (*hint hint wink wink*) I’m sat under a blanket compiling this list. It’s a Monday morning, I’ve got two poorly boys, one who is home from school, and I’m feeling not so great myself. I’ve been in a lot of pain with a cyst on my ovary – the first I’ve had in nearly three years – and I’ve had to cancel a planned trip to London on Wednesday, where I was going to be visiting Youtube HQ. I needed some serious cheering up, and so thought I would write my Christmas list – my…

For the last 5 years I have been a stay at home mum. Mummy to two little people, later three. At home I am in my little bubble. I struggle from time to time as we all do.

Obviously I would not only take these items with me – chances are we could have a week of blazing sunshine, and the coats and jumpers would not be needed. As we live in Britain, the likelihood is there…

As a teenager, it was a standing joke in our house that when the new season Next Catalogue was delivered, my mum would try and hide it, as she knew I would have my nose in it straight away. These days, it is no different, except maybe it is easier as the entire collection is available online – back in my teenage days they used to send a CD Rom with the catalogue – showing my age a bit there. Since becoming a mum, my style has become rather predictable, a lot of navy, stripes, denim and tan accessories –…
