IMG_8829

My school friends and I, one by one, are all turning 40 this year.  There are five of us who’ve been friends since school and we’ve been through all sorts of ups and downs over the many many many years (yes, let’s face it, we’re borderline ancient now) we’ve been buddies.  These five girls mean […] Read more…

One of my most favourite things about Christmas, aside from the first annual play of Mariah Carey (no shame), is the moment we put up our tree and get the decorations down from the loft.  There’s nothing quite like the Christmas tree being given pride of place in the living room to really kick-start that […] Read more…
