Any Other Photo {Esme and Tom}

Clare, Aisling and I collectively adore Esme.  Aisling and I collectively adore Tom (Clare would as well, fact, but she was inconveniently in Russia when we met him).  As well as being possibly the most genuine couple we’ve ever had the pleasure to meet, Esme and Tom turned preconceptions on their head when planning their wedding, [...]

On being only a wife.

I often used to daydream about being able to give up my job and spend the long days meeting with friends in hip coffee shops, devouring books from the latest must read list, and cooking delicious meals that didn’t have a thirty minute time limit and come out of a packet with M&S; written on [...]

The Books That Made Me Me {Fee}

When we posted the very first books post, we were utterly delighted with how well it went down with you beautiful people, but not really that surprised. After all, the three of us all adore books, whether they are escapes from the real world or insights into worlds that we would never otherwise experience, so [...]

It’s all in the family.

I am part of a tight-knit family unit, consisting of my mum, dad, sister and cousin.  We get on very well.  We go abroad together once a year.  We look forward to seeing each other.  We bicker sometimes, but always say sorry.  I am constantly reminded by Mr K how lucky I am to have [...]

Any Other Photo {Mahj and Martin}

I know we say this a lot, but this time it’s true.  We have been waiting for today for weeks.  Oh, Any Other Party?  Pfft, that little thing?  No.  We are beyond excited because we are posting Mahj’s Any Other Photo.  Yes, Mahj, the funniest, most loyal, best phrase-coiner in the blogosphere.  Here.  On these peachy pages.  Today.  Le [...]

Adventures of a Wedding Belle

We received a submission for a post recently, a beautifully written, sane and sensible post on the dynamics of step-families in a wedding. That’s not what we’re posting today though. Don’t worry, I’m not just being a tease, you’ll get to read it soon! We e-mailed the author, Bella, to say thank-you-we-love-it-you’re-amazing and got to [...]

Behind The Scenes at AOW

Holy wow! [...]

Any Other Man – Penny

It’s no secret that Aisling, Clare and I are fans of Bad Penny. She writes brilliantly (oh, do we have some more Penny for you coming up soon), has more cool in her little finger than in all three of us put together, and is a loyal, witty and wise AOW-er.  My conversation with Penny [...]
