Low Care Pot Plant for the Front Door

I really adore a lush pot plant situated at the front door, it always makes me smile. However, my many attempts to create a similar oasis have been a dismal failure. But I know why I fail, I simply forget to water. It’ s that old saying ‘Out of sight, out of mind’, being situated […]

Dubai Safari

This Bloggerati Getaway is proudly sponsored by Dubai Tourism I looked out to an ocean of sand with rippled waves of rolling dunes. Sky and sand: everywhere. The terrain was spotted with the odd scrub or two. On one side of me, I watched the sun slip down, and in its wake, coloured light spread […]

Look Up: Dubai Skyline

When I travel to different places in the world, I look at the skyline. I think you can tell a lot about a place from looking up. I did it in India, and in Laos, and now I’m here in Dubai. In the week I’ve been in Dubai, I’ve experienced so much it’s mind boggling! Last […]

Raspberry & White Chocolate Cheesecake

How to be Dad, When I’m Hardly There

Guest post by my husband, Matthew   I work…a lot, not out of choice, but necessity. I do love my job, it is mentally challenging, professionally satisfying, and it pays the bills.

French Inspired Fashion for Kids

I receive a lot of emails from various sources about products, brands and launches.  This one caught my eye and I thought it worth sharing because the clothes go up right up to size 14 (it’s so hard to find beautiful clothes for that age group!) and the range have a classic (yet still functional) look about […]

Tween/Teen: Easy Party Favour Idea

There’s an interesting conversation […]

The Story of the Clarinet in the Brown Case

I learned the clarinet at primary school and continued to play in the band at high school.  I wasn’t particularly talented, but I enjoyed being part of a band and making music.  When I started working as a teen, I decided to save up and upgrade my plastic-y student instrument to a nice wooden one.

My husband works long hours and I am the default parent. It’s the way it works for our family.  I’ve found it better to find paid […]
