Thanks to heads up from @mytwomums an easy Coconut and raspberry waffle recipe for #Internationalwaffleday on the blog @sageappliances

So there I was an hour ago, minding my own business when this Tweet appeared: How did I not know it was International Waffle Day?!   Waffles are my favourite thing.  Look I even have a waffle board on Pinterest (I told you yesterday that Pinterest is my…
A yummy recipe for coconut and raspberry waffles on the blog today, to celebrate International Waffle Day. Rude not to really, don't you agree?

Opening today at @wbtourLondon is the new #HogwartsExpress display. We got a sneak peek last week

. Today is the day if you are a huge Harry Potter fan, and let’s face it, who isn’t it?  The actual real life Hogwarts Express steam train arrives at platform 9 3/4 of the Warner Bros Studio Tour just outside Watford.   Ellie and I were lucky enough to…

On the blog today, #Danceathon 2015. Done.

Apologies first of all if you got an email notification about a similarly named post yesterday.  That is what happens when you try and get organised by planning posts for the week, and then don’t get around to writing the actual post whilst at the same…
The Danceathon 2015 is done. I am a bit broken but I have grabbed a whole of tweets and published them all here as a bit of a snapshot of the day

On the blog today it is The Gallery -- and the theme is Black And White

Another great theme.  I love black and white photos.  I agree with Tara, they really do give a greater depth of emotion, and you see things you don’t necessarily see when you have colour there too. This isn’t a picture I took in black and white, it has…
The Gallery theme this week is Black and White. This pic was taken in black and white but I love the skin tones when edited that way

On the blog today: The problem with 1D fans

. is that they are their own worst enemies.    I have never seen behaviour like I have seen from fans of One Direction fans this week on Twitter.  Or actually, any week on Twitter.  They are a completely different beast. This week we have heard on the…
The problem with 1D fans is that they are a tad hysterical. And think it's all about them. And not about five young men. Now four.

Taking Better Photos after a day at the @ukphotoshow

. Whilst I have been trying to save the world in the past few months Mr B has been holding down a stressful job with a four hour daily commute and, in his words, “keeping the home fires burning” whilst I have been away.   No mean feat and so to say thank…
Taking better photos is my new motto. Either with my camera, or with my phone but we headed off to the Photography Show this weekend to learn EVERYTHING

Full stop. My full stop to mark the end of the @rednoseday 2015 campaign

I like full stops.   I like that they signify the end of a sentence.  You know where you are with a full stop.  It tells you to breathe.  To stop mid paragraph.  You can look up when you get to the full stop.  You can even go off and make a coffee.  Put…
There need to be full stops to tell you when to take a breath. When something has come to an end. That is this post for Comic Relief 2015. My full stop

Last Sunday was all about Tesco's Mum of the Year Awards @tesco @tescoliving (and falling out of a taxi. Oops)

There is a saying isn’t there about never working the animals or children.  Well I think from now on that list might also include me.    Certainly if this is anything to go by: Yeah.   Great entrance to what turned out to be a really high class event.  …
Last Sunday was the 10th annual awards ceremony for Tesco Mum of the Year and I was thrilled to have been invited to see 8 amazing women being honoured.

Introduction
         
         
         
Mum of three, wife of one.   Blogging since April 2011 and thrilled to have been nominated for various awards and won some too.   Even more thrilled to have been a part of Team Honk that raised awareness of the good work being done in Africa by Comic Relief, and of helping to raise over £40,000 in two years for them.  

Ever so slightly bonkers and most likely to be heard saying "oh yeah, I have a story about them" over a pint of Martini and lemonade.
Bragging rights
Finalist in the BiBs 2012. Winner of Social Media Category of the BiBs in 2013. And winner in the Commentary category for BiBs 2013 for work with Team Honk. First woman to be invited to a male dominated sheep grab in the desert of Saudi Arabia. And in 2014 chatted about how bloggers may be able to help end world poverty by 2030 with Richard Curtis (yes THE Richard Curtis) and how blogging is a force for good with David Cameron in Downing Street. MADs Award finalist too
