I've had glasses since I was 17 and at college. I spent precisely 17 years hating them up until getting my new glasses late last year. Who knew the bigger frames I've been avoiding all this time would actually suit me! Now I wear them all the time and I don't whip them off every… Continue reading So the eldest needs specs… quite fetching I say.
I never had dance lessons as a child. It never came up as an option and I never asked. I love that my little girl loves dancing. At only just 6 years old she has completed her rosette awards in ballet and tap. Proud mummy alert. We are currently in the throes of preparing for… Continue reading Once upon a ballerina
The excitement, the build up, the preparation, the sleepless night before, the presents, the food, the guests, the cake... and that's just me! I love the kiddo's birthdays.

I could sit here all day...
"Mum can I have a sandwich? Mum can I have toast with peanut butter?" Crazed and crazed relentlessly until it's ready. 5 minutes and 2 nibbles later... "Mum I've had enough"...
I'm in beautiful Cornwall listening to the waves crashing against the beach. No better place to start my blog. It took me all evening but I managed to set up my entire blog by myself using only my mobile phone. Feeling very accomplished. This will be the first of many twilight posts as I have… Continue reading Twilight post
