Things have been going FAAASSSTTT! Due to some technical wonderment (I like to think it was me being awesome, but we all know it was Amazon being speedy), Survival of the Ginnest was published on Tuesday 5th May. That’s right, you can now get a real life copy of Dottie and hold it in your hands!


Fellow blogger and downright lovely lady Steph is publishing a book soon, and I was lucky enough to get a sneaky peak.

Here’s the blurb > >

Years ago, Cassie loved Jesse. But he was the bass player in her favourite band and didn’t know she even existed. Now the band has broken up and she’s found him on Facebook, and after finally meeting in London, their relationship quickly intensifies and Cassie and Jesse find themselves in a long distance relationship spanning five thousand miles. 

But a misunderstanding tears them apart and as she tries to piece her life back together in London, Jesse is planning a way to win her back with the help of her best friend… and a ukulele.

I love the fact that talented people now have the opportunity to come out and publish their work, and I’m super excited for you guys that Steph is one of those guys. This book is funny, insightful, and really made me smile.  I’ll be posting a full review over on Amazon once it’s live!

Getting Over Jesse Franklin will be available from the Kindle Store from 18th May 2015!


Whilst I a still on my American Box Set addiction, and Mr Aimee and I are working our way through Bates Motel, what I’m currently loving are a few Britcoms (maybe this is because I’m stealing ideas for when somebody realises Dottie is totally sitcom worthy – PLEASE) so I’m currently laughing at these two…

A mixture between a smile and a grimace. Seriously though, between the stress and total body consuming nerves of you all hating Ginnest – I had a really lovely bank holiday weekend. The below picture I think shows how happy I was to have a day with my boys and my mum at the beach, mainly because it wasn’t peeing it down when I thought it would!

I even have bad hair and I don’t care. Although, my magic wonderful hairdresser will soon be fixing it all!


Teeth grinding. Mine.


…it through the day. Sounds dramatic, and it’s really not. But you know what it’s like when you’re busy? You run around like a headless chicken and finally collapse on the sofa/bed/in the wine cooler. Next week I’ll be better.

…and lastly

Thank you.
