Bank holiday weekend is lying ahead of us, and I already know what will be cooking in our pots on Sunday: succulent Indian lamb chops accompanied by a lemon-zesty couscous, followed by heavenly chocolate cupcakes. I tried it on my in-laws the other weekend and the recipes weren’t only easy peasy, the in-laws are still […]
The guy next to me on seat 11B kept on pushing my elbow off the armrest. Well, at least he tried. I was tempted to ask him if he knew how lucky he was. If it weren’t for my very generous husband, he’d be kicked off the armrest by a screaming 13-months-old. It was only […]
Bouncing to the sounds of Rihanna through the kitchen this morning with little L on my arm, I realised that this was ‘our’ song. We had only started dating when I boarded a plane to go to Stockholm to see the man who should become the love of my life. Big M picked me up […]
So. Where are we? Three months after accepting an offer on our house, we are still in Islington. We still have not exchanged. We have pulled a lot of hair – very much to the dismay of Big M who didn’t have a lot of hair to begin with. We got in a few silly […]

We have a winner! It’s Tish @ A femme d’un certain age. Dear Tish, I hope you will have lots of fun scrubbing and buffing and creaming and pampering yourself. Prends soin de toi! And don’t forget to email me your mailing address.
Call me a fanatic. Call me an addict. Call me a victim of cleverly devised marketing plans. IT’S NOT MY FAULT, I JUST LOVE BEAUTY PRODUCTS! Sorry for crying out loud. Naturally, when a lovely PR lady from Liz Earle offered me to review a few products from their wonderful, no-nasties skin care range, I […]
I have been a bad girl. A very bad girl. I deserve spanking, no-pudding-straight-to-bed-orders and a week without Gossip Girl. My unforgiveable sin: precious memes, tags and awards have been bestowed upon me by my beloved, fabulous and lovely bloggie friends, and I have not responded in an appropriate manner. But I promise to be […]
Let’s say you are in your mid to late 30s and Mr. Right is way out of sight. Let’s also say you had a very strong desire for a baby, but the idea of a partner to share this with seems far-fetched. Your biological clock is ticking mercilessly. What would be the Plan B? Is […]
We passed a major milestone in the Met Mum household. Little L started walking. Or rather, running… Have a lovely weekend, you all!
