A Tour of the Vineyards in Essex

A couple of weeks ago I was very lucky to be invited along to a fabulous press trip in Essex, having a look at some of the vineyards and breweries in the area. It was organised by Visit Essex and a superb day out.

We fitted a huge amount into the day, so I couldn’t possibly share every single thing with you, but I’m going to try to cover the most important parts. Continue reading A Tour of the Vineyards in Essex

“Tragedy Should Not Stop Calendar’s Release,” says Brave Mum

A charity calendar will go on sale despite one of the featured babies tragically dying of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) aged just six weeks and five days old.

Millie Brear’s photo was taken for a charity calendar inspired by Call The Midwife, but sadly she died just days before the calendar was due to go on sale.  The calendar was expected to raise thousands of pounds for a number of baby charities.  However, Millie’s Mum, Chloe, has said that the tragedy should not stop its release adding, “We hope her perfect little face makes people smile.  I took Millie along in the hope that she could help out with the cause.” Continue reading “Tragedy Should Not Stop Calendar’s Release,” says Brave Mum

Feeling Calm #88

For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.

This week has been lovely. Busy, but lovely. It seems that time is just rushing by me at the moment and I’m struggling to keep my head above water, but at least I’m busy with fun things.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:
