Porn.

A few months ago, when I asked Twitter for ideas to blog about, porn was mentioned again and again (mostly by women). Perhaps some were joking, thinking I’d never go there (more fool them!) or maybe it’s one of those topics that is so polarizing it creates great debate. And we all know I love…

3D Butterfly Wall Art

We got round to decorating our daughter’s bedroom in March. This involved taking a radiator off one wall and putting a new one under the window, re-painting the entire room (with the dreaded Dulux Light & Space except I kept calling it Durex Light & Space which amused my decorators enormously) and building an IKEA wardrobe which took days….

New Job

So I have news. I got a new job! I haven’t said anything until now because it’s kept me madly busy (and then exhausted) but also because I was quite certain they’d figure out I was a hapless idiot and fire me after day one. I haven’t worked the last couple of years so I…

Bananas 

This is a very quick story about bananas. Before I agreed to marry Husband he lived with people other than me. Like his parents and stuff. But he also had some very lovely and gorgeous housemates, Rachael, I’m looking at you, and some who could have done more in the way of housework (Alex &…

Petit Bateau 

My daughter wore quite a lot of Petit Bateau as a baby. This was mostly due to my mother going slightly nuts in the shop and buying everything. Their babygros are softer than soft but what I really loved was the… bum flap. I’m fairly certain this isn’t the technical name for it but it’s…

Floating Seahouse

I was born in England but at about two weeks old I made my first plane journey when we moved to Abu Dhabi. My family and I would live in the Middle East for the next few years, residing in Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Sharjah and Dubai. My parents weren’t strangers to the region, having met…

Guns 

In the early hours of this morning 29 year old Omar Mateen opened fire in the club ‘Pulse’ in Orlando, Florida. He was armed with an assault rifle and a handgun. He killed 50 people and injured a further 53. The death toll is likely to climb over the next few days. This is the…

Cigarillo Celebration Cake 

I’ve made this cake a couple of times and it’s perfect for any kind of celebration and super easy to make! It’s simple but it does take a bit of time so best to make it the day before you need it. Ingredients vegetable oil/oil spray 200g butter, softened 200g caster sugar 4 eggs 140g plain…

Cuddly Sleeper 

Are you a cuddly sleeper? Is your partner? I am NOT. I need my own space. My husband and I have a Kingsize bed and I’d still be keen to upgrade it to a SuperKing. He often jokes  “Kim would like a bed that’s so big you need a visa to visit the other side”. How do…

Sylvanian Families

When my daughter was little she was obsessed with Sylvanian Families. This obsession came about because I stuck them under her nose at every given opportunity. I always liked them when I was small but never had any. I was not hard done by, far from it. I had Care Bear/My Little Pony/Flower Fairy collections…
