How It Is

Plastic Babies – are they worth it?

1 Oct , 2014  


Last night we were watching Jon Richardson on the TV, he’s had a documentary out the last few weeks and last night’s episode – the final in the three part series – was about children. You can find out more about the documentary and Jon here. He’s very funny. ANYWAY, as part of this documentary […]

Everything Else


29 Sep , 2014  


Happy Monday! (Well it’s not Tuesday is it!) On Saturday I woke up at 6am to a small child talking at me and I really wasn’t feeling the love. Then Mr Aimee refused to get up and get me a sausage and egg McMuffin (SELFISH) so I felt the love even less.

What I’m Writing This Week

23 Sep , 2014  


If I said that this week hadn’t gone to plan that would be a lie. NO I didn’t hit word-count target (I was 1,164 words out coming in at 3,836), but that’s not the weeks fault. That’s procrastination’s fault. I’ve not knuckled down as much as I should have. In fact, after having feedback on […]

An Open Letter To Tuesday

23 Sep , 2014  


Dear Tuesday, I have something to say. Incase you hadn’t already realised, I don’t like you very much.

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’.

Fast Food

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.

Everything Else

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.

Everything Else

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 […]

Back to life, back to reality.

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 […]
