#EarthDay 2014 Mini Sparkles

mini sparkles 2014

Today is Earth Day and exactly a year ago we made a pledge and planted ‘Mini Sparkles’, a little silver tree. We promised to try to visit it in the wild (Hollingdean actually) every year to see how it was getting on.

 

Well, we think we found our little tree. In our excitement last year we hadn’t really marked the spot and ‘The Wild’ changes quite a bit in a year. It’s a jungle out there!

This note is for her and her brand new little baby.

Daisy’s Australia blog part 2

imageWe went to the beach again and we saw an enormous, blobby, scary jellyfish. Then we climbed a gigantic cliff that lead up to a cave. My cousin Tal, who is 9, kept throwing the ball down the cliff to my mum.

Today I went to the beach and I saw a little spiky dead creature. 1 was purple, one was blue and one was red.

Then I went in the sea with my cousin and had a swim.

Lots of love from your friend Daisy

Hasta la vista baby – A month without social media?

social media breakRight that’s it.

I’m out of here.

Challenging myself to a month without social media.

It’s going to be tough.

This post is really just to myself.  A promise I suppose.

If you’re not an addict like me then you won’t get it.

January blues? Let’s go camping!

tent in rainDoes anyone actually like January?

Pretty depressing isn’t it?

Christmas come down, cold and wet, everyone skint, and nothing on TV but holiday ads reminding you of a life you can’t keep up with.

You can’t even cheer yourself up down the pub as everyone sets themselves ridiculous new years resolutions.

January is always detox time in our house. The one time of the year my husband does the shopping. Filling the cupboards with cardboard crackers that sit there till the following January.

Wild animals on Brighton Beach! Team Honk

honk facesWe did it!

For some ridiculous reason I agreed to take part in a Lands End to John O’groats relay for Sport Relief with my friend Maddie from Gammon and Chips.

Sport and I are not familiar friends. More distant cousins I suppose. Unless it involves a pint of cider and a heavy bass line the closest I come to exercise is an occasional go on Wii Dance if I can drag myself off the sofa.

My first day off in 8 years, 2 months and 13 days

shineSpoiling ourselves is something us mums rarely do. When I found myself with both kids at school & nursery on Thursday and no work for the first time in over 8 years, I didn’t really know what to do with myself.

Tell Tesco to stop dumping plastic in our oceans

OK, we all know shopping in big multinationals is not the greatest idea.

I am guilty of popping in to any old shop that happens to be on my route home without really thinking about it.

But if we really do have all this buying power in our hands then surely we should have a voice. After all, we are keeping them in business, and if enough of us stop shopping there they will have to start listening.

Wont they?
