I have had what could only be described as a sensational year. Which is not to say it didn’t have it’s challenges, but if you told me that by the end of 2015 I would be here I may not believed you EXCEPT that I was clear that here is where I wanted to be, … Read the rest
I want to tell a story about yesterday. And then perhaps it will make sense.
My youngest daughter – the JBaby – turned 5 yesterday. It seems crazy to me that my littlest little is now 5 years old. How did that happen? How could I have foreseen where 5 years would take us?

So I did it. Went on a hot date with one of my lady loves and saw the movie. On the mega screen.
I have read the books. All three. I enjoyed them. I’m not going to get all deep and meaningful about literary merit or how they were one book made into three so … Read the rest
Someone interviewed me last week. Just about the story of my life. I told it, as well as I could in 1.5 hours. Afterwards I felt a bit exhausted. And a bit sad. And then a bit like, I DO NOT want to be that person with the sad love story.

If gratitude for all we have brings us peace, then peace rules our house right now.
Last night we hosted Thanksgiving Dinner for the first time, inspired by our truly amazing au pair. She baked for two WHOLE days in preparation, whilst also single-handedly managing the rest of the week’s menu planning and shopping, entertaining … Read the rest
I had a Sunday that was great. It was what I always would have wanted for a Sunday. This particular Sunday reminded me that one day you are great again, and it just sneaks up on you. But it also reminded me that I wanted to tell you, that where you are right now is … Read the rest
Thank you to all those amazing people who have driven me and mine around in the last 3 months.
Here’s my photo tribute to you all x
