Putting the sleep in Coffee Work Sleep Repeat

In the early days of being a parent you wonder whether you will ever really sleep again. A basic human function that was once taken for granted becomes a kind of Holy Grail. You think of those dreamy nights and lazy mornings with a kind of wistful nostalgia or crazed hysteria drenched desperation depending on just how sleep deprived you might be feeling at that time. You start having competitive parent discussions at baby groups…

Must See US Dramas On Netflix – My Top 5

All work and no play can make one a rather dull girl, so when I want to relax Netflix is often where I turn.

Gin Festival – Date night at Blackpool Tower Ballroom

I remember the first time I tried a gin and tonic. I was staying with a friend in London and before we headed out to a gig, she poured me a glass of pre-mixed Gordons and tonic. I think I’d just had my youngest daughter so we’re  probably talking about five or six years ago. I’m ashamed to admit it but after one sip I pulled a face and handed it swiftly back to her. I…

A creative photowalk around Preston

For a while now I’ve been wanting to go on a photowalk. For those not in blogging circles a photowalk is when you get together with a few other people and cameras in hand you capture what’s around you and what interests you as a photographer.
