Autumn Style Wish List

22 Sep , 2014  


Ok, you know how I love the summer and moan about the Autumn and Winter? Well I have a little bit of a confession to make…

Not Just A Mum – vlog.

21 Sep , 2014  


It’s been a while, but here’s my third vlog about confidence. This time I talk about identity, and a phrase which is banded about a lot right now, ‘just a mum’.

My New Favourite Breakfast.

18 Sep , 2014  


Breakfast, it’s the most important meal of the day, and probably my favourite. Although, if you follow me on Instagram you don’t need to be told this, it’s pretty obvious.

What I’m writing this week.

16 Sep , 2014  


This is it, this is my week where things are back to normal. Except of course, yesterday I had my haircut and coloured which took all morning – which if I’m honest, is no hardship, I adore my hairdresser and got to look at her beautiful wedding photos.

When you love the little things.

If ever there was a week to love the little things, this is it. The post-holiday-back-to-school week was bound to be tough, with the addition of Mr Aimee working long hours, and The Chunk only doing an hour or so a day, I have had no AIMEE time at all really. This is fine, but I’m […]

X Factor Dreams

11 Sep , 2014  


When I was at secondary school my careers advisor squashed my dreams in one sentence. “I don’t think that’s really a sensible choice, I suggest you study and work in childcare, that would be much more realistic.”

I’ve gained a stone.

9 Sep , 2014  


At the beginning of the summer holidays I had a bit of a wobble. Something I’ll talk about later when we discuss identity. Luckily things calmed down and it felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders, I think I can probably say that it was just what I needed to get […]

Incase any of you have managed to ignore my smugness of 30degree heat in Spain over on social media for the last 10 days (sorry about that), we’ve been on holiday, and now we’re back. We got off the plane to the sort of rain that feels like somebody has put their thumb over the end […]

Bad Mums Club – Back to school!!

1 Sep , 2014  


Oh look, another Bad Mums Club where I’m on holiday (ok, it’s totally ok to hate me). But who am I to let a little (LOT) of sunshine get in the way of a good old discussion about parenting? I’ve spoken a few times recently about the summer holidays – since they’ve pretty much been […]

Have I mentioned we’re going on holiday? Have I mentioned that yet? Sorry…I’m a little bit excited about spending some time in the sun, especially after Bank Holiday Weekend was such a wash out. Anyway, I digress, back to the holiday… (please don’t stop reading!)

Happy Holidays!

25 Aug , 2014  

I bet you've never seen this before have you?

Happy Bank Holiday Monday, and a special happy holiday from me as we are getting ready to spend a bit of family time together in Spain! To celebrate this, along with a quick reminder that you only have TWO WEEKS left to leave a review of Mother’s Ruined and link to it to be in […]

Is ‘Social Shaming’ the only way to get decent customer service?

24 Aug , 2014

I once wrote a post called Anti-Social Nation. You can read it here if you like. Nearly two years later, and things don’t really appear to have moved on. Except that (most) firms tend to be shit hot when it comes to responding to social shaming when it comes to complaints.
