I lost 100 pounds, but keeping it off is a struggle...
I've fallen off the wagon again. I was ill from mid-November to New Year and put on loads of weight over Christmas. I lost a stone in January, then managed to put it on again in February. Careless. March was a yo-yo month, and again I haven't been well. I have been feeling stressed and have ...

This is a must read, from +Becky Goddard-Hill 
This week I read Pennys lessons learned from her much loved  mother  and I also read Michelle’s post about the legacies she wants to leave her children.  Both pieces of writing moved me greatly and made me reflect on the lessons I have learned and wish to pass on. Michelle challenged others to share the [...]

Are you going to donate to Comic Relief? Get it out of the way and sponsor me for the Comic Relief Danceathon NOW.

Please and thank you.
The first ever Comic Relief Danceathon is taking place at Wembley on 8 March 2015, and I'll be there as part of the mighty Team Honk. This will be the third year that Team Honk have raised money for Comic Relief. Remember the Relay and Damini the elephant? It's slowly beginning to sink in that ...

Ooh, ah, etc. A showstopper on the blog today
Get a load of that in your cake hole. If it will fit, that is. This giant cupcake was fun to bake and a joy to eat. My son requested this cake for his 7th birthday. Once we had the concept it was simply a case of working out how to make it happen. Here is some guidance, followed by the recipe ...

I've got my Comic Relief apron, have you?
I have, erm, a large shelf on my front that collects drips and crumbs from whatever I'm eating, and I eat while I'm cooking... I have two children who enjoy baking, and cookie dough and Nutella will transfer from them to me, even though they deny touching anything with mucky hands.

Well said, +Alex Walsh 
Whenever I queue up in Boots to buy a bottle of medicated anti dandruff shampoo, I'm assaulted by a view of about a dozen magazines that don't seem to have grasped the concept of the surname. It's full of people referred to as Colleen, Natasha or Charlotte, going to the shops, having their ...
