30 Days Blogging – Day 18: A day in the life of…at work

Tuesday 18th April 2017: 06:00 – I’m in the middle of a dream when the alarm goes off at our usual work time. It’s a shock after the ‘lazy’ (well, in parent terms) Easter weekend mornings have taken their toll because I struggle to drag myself out of bed. I down a load of water and then start the getting-ready process.

30 Days Blogging – Day 17: My best holiday memory

Whilst some of the best moments in my life have been experienced since becoming a mother, my best holiday memory is years before Little H was even a thought or a plan. One day I genuinely hope that a family holiday will claim the Top Memory Spot, but we’ve had mixed success with holidays to date. So for now, my favourite holiday memory is from when Sam and I went to Rome in 2011. Until that point I had never

30 Days Blogging – Day 16: Me and my smartphone

I’m a blogger, a techie, a mum and a commuter. So I think it’d be a safe bet to assume I own a smartphone. To me these amazing devices are a blessing and a curse. They are a distraction when I need to kill time but also when I should be focusing on more important things. They have helped me out in a scrape on more occasions than I can count, yet make me too quick to turn to Google

30 Days Blogging – Day 15: The celeb I’d like to spend 15 minutes with is…

So this one had me stumped. I sat and pondered over it for ages and ages. There are lots of celebrities that I find interesting and if I happened to ‘bump into them’ in soft play or something then it would be great to have a chat. Nor do Sam and I go in for those ‘Freebie Lists‘ of ‘Friends’ fame so no motivation there! After much reflection, I decided there wasn’t a single celebrity personality that I would really

30 Days Blogging – Day 14: Films that I love, love, love!

Films are a huge deal in Casa Watling. Sam is an avid fan and we have a pretty large collection. We fully intend to get Little H similarly hooked. When I spotted this topic on the 30 Days Blogging Challenge list, I was quite excited. But in reality it was hard to come up with a finite list. I know there are films I love which I’ve forgotten too! However, whatever my mood, I could happily watch at least one

30 Days Blogging – Day 13: TV shows I’ll happily get square eyes for!

30DaysBlogging13

My-oh-my, I’ve watched some terrible TV programmes over the years. But, as with anything, it takes practice to become an expert at something. Learning select top telly viewage is no different. Haha! Of course, everything is subjective so if you ask Sam his opinion on some of these, I’m sure he’ll scoff. Time is in short supply now I’m the mum of a small though, so if I’m going to find the time to plonk my bottom on the sofa

30 Days Blogging – Day 12: If I could move anywhere…

The ‘official’ title of the twelfth topic of the 30 Days Blogging Challenge is “Somewhere you’d like to move or visit.”. I’ve very much decided to go with the “move” options because for years I have been harbouring desires to one day move to a different country. Well, two different countries in fact which are – as you will shortly discover – really quite different. Realistically I don’t see us upping sticks and heading off to foreign lands in the

30 Days Blogging – Day 11: favourite foods!

I love food. Eating is one of my absolute favourite things. For the most part I like healthy and fresh food but I am partial to the odd take-away curry too! If I could I think I would eat most of the time. I need to snack regularly otherwise I get grumpy. But I have to pay continual attention to what I eat these days because I don’t manage to exercise as much as I used to; Back in my

30 Days Blogging – Day 10: my top 5 pet peeves

This is a dangerous topic for me to write about. There are a lot of things that irritate me. I mean A LOT. I’m not prone to outbursts of pure anger but tend to simmer with rage and fury inside. (Sam accuses me of road rage but I don’t think making abusive remarks about other drivers in a normal tone whilst in the privacy of our car counts as road rage!). I’ve invested a lot of effort over the years

30 Days Blogging – Day 9: Cravings

30daysblogging9

I am very prone to craving foods and that’s what I’m taking this Day 9 to mean! Once I crave something, nothing will usually sate my appetite. Strangely during pregnancy I think I craved things less strongly than in my bump-free state! I have been known, on multiple occasions, to make a trip out to get something I really want to eat. Recently I have taken Little H on a walk to get an iced bun from the baker, a
