Beginning my running journey (again!) – Month 1
If you have been following me a very long time you may remember that in 2014 (after having Lottie and before getting pregnant with Wren in 2016), I became obsessed with running.

Happy New Year 2019
I can't believe it. I cannot believe that 2018 is behind us and today is the 1st January 2019. We had a lovely low key Christmas and New Year full of quiet moments, family time and lots and lots of food. We don't tend to do a lot for Christmas and that's the way I like it really, although it...

Going the extra mile for their customers? Community Banking with Natwest (AD)
Jon and I were talking the other week about certain things that just aren't the same anymore. Can you remember the last time you went into a travel agent to book a holiday? I genuinely can't, it is all done online nowadays. Or silly things like I remember my Mum used to take me to Blockbuster at the weekend...

Motherhood right now…
The other night Maddie said to me 'Am I still allowed a phone when I am 10?' For a couple of years now, probably ever since she started school, every now and again she mentions getting a phone, or more specifically how old will she be when she is allowed a phone. We have always just said ten, we...
