It’s Winnie The Pooh Day

“What day is it?”, asked Winnie the Pooh. “It’s today,” squeaked Piglet. “My favourite day,” said Pooh. ― A.A. Milne Today, January 18th, is the birthday of author A.A. Milne. And it is thus, that today we celebrate what I believe to be his most marvellous creation: Winnie the Pooh.  Author A.A. Milne brought the adorable, honey-loving bear to life in his stories which also featured his son, Christopher Robin. I have always loved Winnie the Pooh as long as I can remember. I think I was around the age of eight when I started to read the books alone. I also recall watching The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh on a Saturday morning when I was a little older. It wasn’t just Winne the Pooh that was adorable. So many other characters that I loved. To name a few there is Piglet, Eeyore,Tigger and Rabbit. Piglet always tries his very best to brave… View Post

Living Arrows 3/52 (2018)

It’s another week of Living Arrows. Every Monday I will be sharing a photo that celebrates childhood. The project originally took its name from a poem – “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” – Kahlil Gibran   This week has been a fairly quiet week. last weekend was my 40th Birthday and since the excitement of celebrating me getting old it has been a quiet week. Pottering round the house and going to J’s playgroup. J has been waking early during the week due to our neighbours leaving for work early and due to him being a light sleeper, is waking. This has meant that some days he has fallen asleep on the sofa. J gave his naps up quite a while ago. Like anyone, when you get over tired you need a power nap. The second photo of the week is a quick snap of E… View Post

Great Quality Clothes from Simply Be – Review

Recently Simply Be contacted me to see if I would like to review some of their products. I had heard of Simply Be before and knew they were a plus size retailer. Being petite I knew I would struggle to find something that would fit. However I discovered that they do a size 8 on some of the items, so I thought I would see how they fit. I also enlisted my sister-in-law to sample one of the larger items. I am not a fan of the colder months, I always want to wrap up warm. When it comes to a night out, whether for a few drinks or a meal I like to be warm, yet stylish. It turns out that Simply Be has clothes that can help with all my requirements. This outfit is perfect for a night out. I love the Fluffy Bow Back Jumper, it has gold… View Post
