Birthday

In November I’ll have been blogging for two years! I know, I know, feels like forever. In that time I’ve racked up 262 posts and thousands of views (well beyond any expectations I ever had!). So thank you for being so kind.  I know I haven’t blogged as much this year – work has kept…

Foot Update

Someone just messaged me asking how my foot is. How kind.  I haven’t blogged about my foot for some time which I’m taking as a good sign as it means it can’t be bothering me as much as it has been. You can read the whole sorry story here, here and here.  But if you can’t be bothered (I…

Egg Run

Last weekend I spent a good couple of hours on the National Trust website.  We joined up last year with big plans to visit gazillions of places but then I went and got a job at the very start of the summer holidays which kind of scuppered it all. I also hurt my foot which certainly…

Crackers 

The other evening I was watching a show I absolutely LOVE called ‘Escape To The Chateau’ (Ch4).  It features Dick Strawbridge, who I adore, and his wife Angel (really named Angela) who bought a delapidated Chateau in France and are set about restoring it to its former glory.  With next to no money.  Well they…

Piano

I don’t play any musical instruments. In infant school I was always the one given the triangle. When I was about 11, I was in the school choir which mostly involved singing Christian themed songs set to pop tunes of the time (just don’t ask). Or we sang Christmas songs. Always Christmas songs. Even in,…

Happy Birthday!

GUESS WHAT? This month knowingkimberly is 1 year old!  Below I have listed some of the more popular posts should you wish to walk down memory lane or maybe missed them altogether. And of course a HUGE thank you to everyone that has read my ramblings or taken the time to interact either here or via…

Reeling

I am still reeling from yesterday’s news that Donald Trump… DONALD TRUMP!… is to be the 45th President of the United States of America. It baffles belief.  Remember that old episode of The Simpsons when Lisa was President?  The gag was that she’d taken over from Donald Trump and he’d left the country in a…

Gin

I know I don’t generally blog about everywhere I go or eat or whatever but this week we went to a gin distillery!  I don’t drink gin but it’s my husband’s drink of choice and he received the Bombay Sapphire distillery tour experience as a birthday present back in September.  It was all quite fun!…

Girl Power

When did feminist become a dirty word? Why do women say they believe in equal rights then shrink back when the word “feminism” is mentioned? I cannot count the number of times I’ve heard women complain about every day sexism and say “I’m not a feminist but…”. What do you mean, you’re not a feminist??…
