Dear Santa (Kids)

It is the time of the year when my children suddenly panic realise that they haven't bought me anything for Christmas and get round to asking me what I want.  So for my beloved children, here is my list of things that they don't have to spend money on.

Dear Crotchfruit Beloved Children, 

You asked me what I want for Christmas, and my first request is this,

Just let me go to the toilet ONCE on my own. I've heard it is peaceful, I've even heard that occasionally, people are able to read a book on the toilet, I'm sure I too used to do that BC (before children) Now, the minute my arse hits the seat, one of many things happen, suddenly there is a queue, (We have TWO toilets, how does this happen?) or you have an overwhelming desire to tell me/show me something that cannot wait even two minutes. Sometimes there is an argument, right outside the door, (That is always fun) and sometimes, (and this is my favourite) someone will stand right outside the door and ask, "What are you doing? Are you having a poo? Oooooh, ooooh, you ARE, you are.

I think I would like to pee in peace, if you can arrange that, I would be grateful.

My second request is that you put things down in a place where you can actually find them. (I may need to make this part clearer) YOU CAN FIND THEM. (Am I asking for too much here? What I would really like is to get to the time you need to leave for school and NOT then have to spend ten minutes looking for football socks/book bags/pens. And I'm not sure if I need to do this as a separate request but if I can't find the aforementioned football socks/book bags/pens, how about we DON'T blame me for it.

Can I also ask you to clean your rooms? (Hahahahahahahaha, joking, I know, I know, I'm so greedy)

Dear Beloved Children, the most important thing that I ask from you this Christmas, is that you continue to laugh, you continue to be happy, you continue to smile and you carry on being the amazing children that you are in 2015.

That is the most important thing that I want from you this Christmas.

(And if we can throw in at least one trip to the bathroom without being bothered, I'd be grateful)

Much Love,


What would YOU ask of your children this Christmas?

If laughter is the best medicine

I have always loved this quote, (God, I hope it's a real one and not one that the Internet has just attributed to him or I'm going to look like a complete tosser) 

But because it is Monday and we have the opportunity to start the whole week based on laughter, I want you to share with me what has made YOU laugh last week, it can be something someone said to you, or something you have seen or even something as simple as a joke. 

I took this picture yesterday and it has made me giggle ever since. 

I keep imagining the meerkat at the back apologising and the meerkat at the front not quite ready to accept his apology. 

Oh and this one too. 

Those meerkats just stared at me like they've never seen a woman with orange hair before, (either that or they are saying, "girrlllllllllll, those roots tho'") 

So share with me something that has made you laugh, it can even be saucy. ;D

I look forward to laughing with you.

Nom or Vom

Because I am SO excited about watching the new film about Stephen Hawking I have decided that this weeks Nom or Vom has to be actor, model and all round good guy, Eddie Redmayne. 

How he has slipped under the Nom or Vom radar all this time is beyond me but now it is his turn. 

Ladies and Gents, I bring you this weeks Nom or Vom,


So what do we think? And is anyone else looking forward to watching him in The Theory Of Everything? 

Nom or Vom?

These boots were made for walking

Look at my boots,

My boots are muddy.

Now you may be wondering why I am showing you filthy boots in a review post, let me tell you.


The boots are from and are from the wide collection. These are an E fitting. This means they are comfortable, this means they fit on my curvy calves.


I could have shown you them all clean and polished, but does that give you a true overview of how comfortable they are?

I don't think it does. Instead I wanted to show you that I wear them, and I wear them A LOT. I walk the dog in them, I go to beautiful scenic places in them, and I go shopping in them. They are practical AND smart.

As a woman with wide calves I never expected to be able to find knee high boots that fitted me comfortably. But now I have.

Just IN CASE you wanted to see what they look like clean, I have take a picture from the JD Williams website.

and you can actually buy these boots here JD WILLIAMS BOOTS

and take a look at what else they have to offer here. JD WILLIAMS FOOTWEAR

What do you think?

Do you have wide calves and struggle to find good boots?

The Problem With.....


Is it the truth? Or by even saying that, does that make people closed-minded.

I'm starting to confuse myself here. 

Let me know what you think about the sentiment above.
