Roses are Red….


beautiful online flowersBefore Christmas I was lucky enough to be offered some wonderful review opportunities one of which was to choose a luxury bouquet of flowers from online florists Designer Flowers. I love flowers and at Christmas particularly the scent of fresh flowers and a real Christmas tree is intoxicating and they look so beautiful.

I opted to review a bouquet of twelve red roses, after all what girl doesn’t love roses?  I asked the team to put a festive spin on the arrangement and was intrigued to see what would arrive with my delivery.

Weekend Hotel Breaks in London


London Paddington hotelsTake one girl, give her a luxury hotel break in London, add in a visit to the UK’s largest indoor retail centre Westfield London and what do you get?  One happy, exhausted but well rested lady.  That’s exactly what happened to me before Christmas when the lovely staff at the London Novotel Paddington invited me down for the weekend to try out their luxurious 4 star hotel and see London town in all it’s Christmas finery.

Getting to London from Lichfield couldn’t be easier with both Virgin Trains and London Midland offering a quick and cost effective service.  Return tickets for me and my guest cost £45 and once into London Euston a short tube hop down to Paddington had us in a part of the city I am not familiar with but yet hosts many of the great tourist attractions such as Hyde Park and Kensington Palace.

It’s About Trust….


being a parent is about trustTomorrow is Monday, not a significant day as far as I am aware in the yearly calendar of 2014.  We will all get up and go to work or do our thing in the same way we always do and many of us will make little achievements throughout the day that make us smile.

Come 5pm ‘the official clocking off time’ many of us will heave a sigh of relief, utter the words ‘Phew! One day closer to the weekend’ and head home.  Those stay at home parents will rejoice as their partner walks through the door and they can slink off to a corner and have five minutes of peace without being interrupted by the sticky mitts of small people.
