The Infinite Depth Of Colour

Oh, readers.  Today’s post will set you alight.  Kate has written what, on the surface, is a Friend That Made Me Me post.  But she’s taken the concept and done things with it that you could never imagine.   The flip side of loving someone that much.  The darkness in the brightest friendship.  Colour and [...]

The tale of the hairy midwife

We have a birth story for you today, readers. A brilliantly written (obviously – it’s by Fee!), sweet, bloomin’ hilarious read with the loveliest, most deserved happy ending. Enjoy. It all began on a Friday. Cervical suture removed, induction started, induction continued all weekend, induction branded a colossal failure on Sunday afternoon. Alternatives are being [...]

Running a bridal boutique – balance

It’s time for lovely Rachel’s monthly column about running her beautiful bridal boutique – this month she’s talking about that magical, mystical thing…. No, not a unicorn. Work-life balance, a topic close to everyone’s hearts. Over to you, Rachel. I’m pretty sure, or at least I hope I’m not alone in thinking that, at some [...]

Why I shan’t be posting a #nomakeupselfie

Today’s post from Cecily is very relevant – this past week has seen the #nomakeupselfie explode on all forms of social media. I don’t have Facebook and I keep my Twitter fairly quiet, so I will admit that the craze passed me by initially. It was only when it crept over to Instagram and the media [...]

In defence of crossfit…

I love posts like this, passionate posts that challenge assumptions and defend the things they love. Laura writes brilliantly about something that has inspired her and pushed her to challenge herself, I don’t think you can argue with that, even if the very idea of it makes you want to hide under your duvet cradling a [...]

What is your excellence?

When I read this post it was like reading my own mind. I am (as Anna and Aisling will happily testify) the WORST person at accepting compliments. I just don’t know how to react, and generally get really uncomfortable and make some deflecting, self-deprecating comment. So to be asked to stand up and tell people [...]

Any Other Photo {Alison and Patrick}

I’m sure I’ve said this before, but it’s  worth repeating. I can’t cope when grown men cry. I just can’t. If I’d walked up the aisle to a sobbing, albeit happily, Phil, I would have had a minor nervous breakdown. So Alison’s AOP fills me with a kind of joy and admiration that makes me [...]

Jobs for the Girls – HGV Mechanic

We have Lucy Stendall to thank for this amazing Jobs for the Girls post, as Kathleen sent this in after Lucy did a shout out on twitter. Kathleen’s story is one of my favourite ones yet. I love how Kathleen found this job, almost by accident, before realising that she actually loved it. I love [...]

Any Other Photo {Amanda and Mark}

Happy Friday people – It is AOP day again! We have had some truly joyful AOPs lately, and this one is no different. You can’t help but look at it and smile a wide, happy grin, just like Amanda and Mark both are. It has ice cream, and family, and sunshine, and that for me [...]
