So, yup, you can guess from the title, I recently celebrated a birthday. But truth be told, I still don’t feel much like an adult. WHAT is one of those, anyway? Adult? Who let me adult? I like to think of myself simply as a slightly wiser (more natural, than platinum blonde) version of myself (so, basically, I’m still the headstrong, stubborn mare, I’ve always been?).

Bags & shoes, they’re my thing. My approach towards purchasing & owning them however, are pretty different: When it comes to footwear, in my humble shoe-lovin’ opinion, one can never own enough pairs (my vice is flats, specifically, trainers). They have an ability to transform any outfit, instantly. I wouldn’t say that I’m a shoe snob as such, but I do believe in quality, & try to buy them for longevity, besides everything else they have to be well made. Building up a shoe collection that even Jimmy would envy, doesn’t have to cost you a fortune either it’s pretty accessible. Continue reading →
“How many weeks until Australia now, mummy?’ – This is the question I’m dealing with on a daily basis, from the 4 year old. It’s quite handy really, having a per diem reminder, my personal countdown calendar. It’s also very cute, how excited he is about the impending move.

I think it’s safe to say I’ve passed the wave of ‘Merry Christmas’, ‘Happy New Year’ & ‘New years resolutions’ posts out there. PHEW. I can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Of course, there’s nothing wrong in these (if that’s yer thang), but the sheer volume of them doing the rounds, does drive folk of a slight humbug-ness disposition (me) a little bonkers.

*Actually, he’s 1,467 days old, to be exact. & I say that, because I’m not quite ready to call him a 4 year old, just yet.
Car journeys have (thankfully) always been enjoyed by Bear, so I thought I’d share with you a few stand out rules of the road**, according to little Mr bananas:
1) Learn to swerve abruptly: Slow maneuvers are b.o.r.i.n.g. Being thrashed around is much more fun.
2) FLOOR IT MUMMY! Like lightning McQueen, little lord bananas has a ‘need for speed’
3) HONK your horn uncontrollably: As soon as the lights change colour/ if you happen to really like the colour of another car/ If you see a tractor/ If you see a bus. HONK! HONK! HONK! Continue reading →
