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

Living Arrows 2/52 (2018)

At the weekend I posted my first Living Arrows post – it is part of a link up. The idea is that I post a photo /photos from the week before celebrating Childhood. This is supposed to be done on a Monday. As you can see I am late again, next week however I will get it posted on Monday. The inspiration for this project is the following quote. You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth Khalil Gibran   The first of this weeks photo’s is one of E and J. E went back to school last week. On day three she didn’t want to go in as she wanted to stay home and play with Joshua. That night when she got home from School she gave him the biggest cuddle. I could tell that he missed her also. The love they have… View Post

Living Arrows 1/52 (2018)

When I first started blogging several years ago, I had no idea that there was a blogging community. It turns out there are some really lovely people who also blog. Some of them are amazing and I really do enjoy reading other people’s posts. To get involved with the community a little bit more and to document my children growing up and how they change, I have decided to join a blog linky called Living Arrows. For those that don’t know, a linky is a post on another persons website which features a tool that enables me to post on a particular subject, with a photo and back link to my blog. That way not only my current readers can see the post, but lots of wonderful bloggers can. I can also click on their link to read theirs. The Living Arrows linky originated from the quote below from Khalil… View Post

I’m 40 Today!

Forty years ago today at 10.42 am a wonderful woman gave birth to quite a cute baby. They named her Lynsey! It’s official I’m forty today – where has the time gone?     I have never been a fan of my birthday, it’s not an age thing. It is purely because it’s so close to Christmas and New Year. By the time everyone has finished with Christmas and New Years eve celebrations nobody can afford anything, or want to do anything. As a child it made no difference but as an adult it sucks a little bit. Forty however seems a little bit more of a big deal. All of the sudden I feel old! When I was a kid, 40 seemed so old. Middle aged.  The age of spinster school teachers and doctors. When I was 20, 40 was my whole lifetime away. When I was 30, 40 seemed like… View Post
