Today, Dads. Here we go for last minute ideas for the dads, grandpas, uncles and brothers, that will tick some boxes and please and surprise the men in our lives, the ones who are most likely to (helpfully) reply “oh whatever” when asked what they want. (Look away now, the husband.) Under £30 Menfolk do tend to prefer the practical. Clockwise l – r:  Stupidly useful tech gloves from Muji. Muji is a great stop […]

Today, Mums.. Yesterday’s last minute Christmas ideas for kids was a bit epic, right? To give some context, a handful of followers had messaged me and asked for more, so here I am – although blogging feels like talking to yourself in an empty cave at times. But now I’m back I’m secretly quite enjoying rambling on in said cave again. So, today it’s all about Christmas ideas for the mums, grandmothers, god mothers, sisters, auntys, friends […]

What we're wearing now

All that glitters This week’s Sunday Best is inspired by the pair of sneakers I just bought for my daughter. So, part rockets and space, part bonfire night inspired, this week is all about non-girly girl fashion for the girls (that includes us ladies), and fab stuff for the lads too (both little and big). Behold the best pair of trainers to rock up in CT5 in a long time (feature image); Boden has come up […]

..All that Glitters. Yesterday, Autumn came. With a pretty resounding message that she’s here to stay, too. I needed socks with my Stans, for the school run,  but as usual all I could find in my drawer was a mis-match of some ancient ones and none of the hundreds I bought this time last year (I do not exaggerate) – Just those belonging to my kids and The Husband. Stripes, trainer socks, massive skate socks, and school socks. […]

Back 2 Skool This week’s Sunday Best is all about the best back-packs to see us into Autumn with the kids returning to school….and obviously us adults always like a refresh too, so there are also some nifty ones here with laptop sections for that daily commute/trek to campus. In at number one for little girls is this amazing Cat-Mermaid (Purr Maids – see what they did there?) backpack from Paperchase. Paperchase has always pulled it […]

…Autumn’s fast approaching (and don’t even get me started on how many days there are til Christmas) and before you know it, we’ll all be in jacket and coat panic.  I’ll be procrastinating as always and will undoubtedly miss out on any of the ones I’ve got my eye on (will continue to put it off in any case)…and I’ll yet again reach for my dog walking coat as the chill sets in first thing […]

…of this summer’s swimwear… With holidays in the front of our minds, we’ve been trawling the swimwear out there for the best around. We’ve all got slightly different needs as we span the age groups; so this is our edit for summer ’16.. 40+  In an attempt to face my mid-life crisis head on, I’ve realised it’s time to walk away from the bikini. Helen Mirren might wear it well, but I cannot.  However there […]

A snazzy jumper. This spring and summer have to have taken the British biscuit. It’s been the wettest June ever and the temperature plummeted by so much, that at one point, the wood nearly got chucked back onto the burner. So, what to wear in these post Brexit apocalyptic times, that can weather both the actual storms and the domestic and global ones? Bring on the snazzy jumper. Light enough to shove in a bag when […]
