As I mentioned I’ve been working with Thinking Slimmer recently, and listening regularly to podcasts known as SlimPods. I know, I know, that sounds a bit dippy hippy but I reckon it’s been working. I am rubbish at diets and health plans and routines in general actually. This is a lazier way to lose weight, trying to retrain your brain to eat better. It’s the kind of thing I wouldn’t have thought would work, and wouldn’t have paid to do but since I’ve been doing it I think it is worth paying for. But as my boys would yell in a game of tag “Bagsy you’re it, No returns” – Sorry Sandra!

Recently I attended Shloer’s brilliant blogger event “crafternoon tea”. It was cakes and posh sandwiches, coffee and crafting with a whole lot of Shloer. Fabulous idea! A lovely dinning room in a posh hotel, and the Makery were teaching us how to make homemade hearts as Christmas tree decorations from ribbons and small bits of fabrics, and buttons and things. I made 2 hearts when I was with Shloer, and now I’m tempted to upcycle old clothing into gifts. Who wouldn’t want a homemade tree decoration made with love by a friend or relative? If only I had a sewing machine, I’d be dangerous!
As a Parragon Book Buddy my sons receive books to review, however this time it wasn’t suitable for my sons so I am giving it away on this post. I checked Parragon don’t mind. It’s lovely, but it’s just not boyish! If I got this as a gift 25 years ago I would have loved it. The giveaway is via Rafflecopter, and only runs a few days as I hope it will be with the winner before Christmas. http://www.parragon.com/uk/books/detail/scrapbook-made-by-me a Rafflecopter giveaway Shared on Loquax.
Hello readers, This competition has ended, and the winner is announced below. Today I’m offering you a chance to win. I know it’s not December yet, but I’m trying to get some presents sorted early. I was offered the chance to have a set of these cufflinks from RING to review but instead I am offering them to you, my readers. They are worth around £30 and would be a lovely gift for a male relative. Perhaps add a photo of the family, or of their pet, maybe their initials? You can have them made in gold or silver coloured metal, I prefer the silver colour myself. Classic, yet contemporary and goes with almost any colour, whereas the gold tones can clash with some fabrics. They are proud of the celeb feedback they’ve received, a couple are footballers, not that I “do” football. It’s still all about the Rugby and […]
As I might have previously mentioned, I am skydiving in memory of Matilda with 8 other Mummies very soon. Matilda Mae was nine months old, I thought “cot death” only takes tiny newborns. Sadly that’s not true. If you are a new parent please please visit the LullabyTrust website and check out the advice bits. Information like this can save little lives. In an attempt to push up my online donations, and to help the Lullaby Trust as much as possible, I am going to raffle off items of my own. These are things I have bought, and items that I as a blogger, have been given for attending conferences or writing certain posts. Anything I can to increase the #MMskydive total with #TeamMatildaMae as currently my page has the least donations. I’m not giving up though! I will be keeping my eyes peeled in shops for nice little prizes […]
