A New Chapter

15 Dec , 2014  


Well. What a year it’s been.  If I look back on last year I can’t believe how amazing it’s been. I finally cut the strings from marketing and took the first half of the year off to focus totally on writing Dottie’s first full length adventure. I ACTUALLY DID IT!

It’s week 48 of #littleloves hosted over at But Why Mummy Why?, and while I know I don’t join in with a post every week, I really do love reading everyone’s happy moments! This week has been busy. Again. I’m coming to terms with the fact that my life is BUSY. What worries me is I think […]

Advent Calendar Joy.

Whose stupid idea was it to introduce a daily chocolate tradition for small children? Obviously somebody who doesn’t have kids that’s who. I used to love advent calendars as a kid, and was so excited to introduce them to the boys. However, what I’d forgotten about being a child, was that that little door becomes […]

Today I’m going to be direct. I’ve been sitting at my computer for the last half an hour, fan heater on feet, Christmas songs playing, attempting to produce a suitably Christmas Spirited post in order to promote the fact that Dottie’s Christmas story is currently free on Amazon.

A Blog About Katie Hopkins.

27 Nov , 2014  


I should start this blog post with a disclaimer – stating the fact that I’m aware that by writing this, I am doing exactly what I’m suggesting we don’t do. But it’s a bit of a chicken and egg situation if that makes any sense?

When you love the little things.

21 Nov , 2014  


Another week flying by and another Friday ready to link up with #littleloves  over at  But Why Mummy Why. I’m not going to pretend this week has been amazing. I’ve not been well – GIRLS THINGS – but I’m so relieved that finally, after years of letting it rule my life, I found a doctor which […]

15 Tips & Facts All Parents Need To Know.

18 Nov , 2014  

Being awake in the middle of the ducking night

When you announce a pregnancy or give birth, you are often bombarded with helpful tit-bits, nuggets of advice, tips and my personal favourite, stories on how it’s going to be. These are often along the lines of “your house will never be the same again” “don’t expect any sleep” “it only gets worse” “enjoy it […]

Christmas Party Outfit (aka THE DRESS THE DRESS)

17 Nov , 2014  


One of the negatives of being self-employed is the lack of a Christmas bash, but that doesn’t stop me planning the outfit. I mean, you never know, Mr Aimee may suddenly whisk me off for a lovely evening of cocktails and romance. (HINT HINT IT IS OUR ANNIVERSARY SOON), so, if I’d been a girl scout, or […]

How Carrie from Homeland and I share emotions.

9 Nov , 2014  


A little while ago I talked about a few clothes on my autumn wardrobe wish list. I do love a bit of autumn fashion and am still considering which bits to pick out and buy (all of them between you and me, but don’t tell Mr Aimee), however, the item from the list has been playing on my […]

Disco Tantrum

6 Nov , 2014  

FullSizeRender (2)

It’s like it never happened. That’s how you have to behave when they say sorry and punishments are dealt out, isn’t it? It stops quickly with The Chunk. A tantrum that is. His rage just disappears, and all that is left to remind an onlooker of his previous rage is a snotty, red puffy face. […]

Learning away from home: how to cope when kids fly the nest

4 Nov , 2014  


It’s inevitable that our kids will one day leave home. Whilst we know this to be true, most of us ignore it until the very minute it becomes a reality. For many, this is because we’re worried about how our lives will change when we no longer have young ones around to care for. Of […]
