The Reality Of Internet Dating

When I was about 34 I started playing about with internet dating and it is how I met Tillys dad. He was a lovely bloke and I fell in love instantly, we had an on/off relationship for about 5 year and I got pregnant with Tilly – but my fairy story soon turned into something from a Stephen King novel! My relationship ended and I swore that I would never use the internet to date again, But I also say that I am never going to drink again – and I always do!

What Hashtags Work Well On Instagram?

At the moment I have really upped my game on Instagram, it is surely becoming my favourite social media to use at the moment because I love sharing my pictures as well as looking at other pictures from fellow Instagrammers. But when I first started on Instagram I never knew the importance of hashtags, but now I realise that if you use hashtags, then your picture is going to be seen by a wider audience. This is because people search for pictures using the hashtag that they are looking for. If I posted a picture on Instagram with the hashtag #Snowfall then someone looking for snow pictures will come across my snap of the snow picture. Hashtags are there for ever on your picture (unless you delete them) so a few months down the line, it is possible someone will come across your picture. There are a few things to remember on Instagram when it comes to hash-tagging though.

We have been to a few of the Big Fish Little Fish kids raves at Dreamland Margate, and Tilly enjoys going to them. This year Big Fish Little Fish return on Saturday 8th April and brings with it a touch of camp Bestival. Camp Bestival is an award winning Kids festival and you will find that you can indulge in some proper rock excess fantasies, the Camp Bestival Pop Stars & Rock Stars Photo Booth is also on its way to Dreamland, so you can get creative with a panoply of props and pose until your heart’s content. And that’s not all! If you Tweet, Facebook or Instagram your photo booth snaps with the hashtag #CB17ontour you could win one of three Camp Bestival 2017 family tickets up for grabs!

Looking For Services Through Bidvine

Have you ever thought to yourself that you need to get a job done around the home or you want something special done for your family? Then you have to phone around to get the best quote. Time consuming isn't it? I think thats what puts me off doing anything, so much research needs doing before you even get the quote.

How to beat blogger’s block

Thanks to Emma for guest posting with us today, sometimes bloggers do find it hard to find new subjects to write about. But Emma has a few tips for you, you can find her at all these different places


Being a blogger is both very rewarding and also very challenging. Often I am faced with “blogger block” where I just cannot sit down to write a blog post...and sometimes I can’t even face anything blog related. Whilst it can be disheartening to anyone who blogs as a hobby, for those of us relying on an income from our blogs, it can be really tough. Here are some of the things I do to beat blogger’s block.

Creating Mermaid Hair On A Child

Yesterday we posted about the shock way we were treated when Tilly had her hair coloured mermaid colour. All kids like to experiment with hair colour and they are always spraying their hair. So this is us creating Tillys hair with a blue and a coral colour spray. Mermaid hair is all the rage at the moment and I think it is fantastic that people are able to express them self with this method. Obviously Tilly is only a few weeks off her 7th birthday so I didn't want to put anything permanent on her hair.

We used some spray cans, and brushed her hair through before sectioning it off, then we sectioned it even more and alternated the colours.

An Open Letter To Small Minded People In My Home Town

Dear Small Minded People Of My Hometown

I feel so sad to be writing this because you all made my 6 year old daughter feel so uncomfortable when we went out the other day. Why did you feel you had to make her feel uncomfortable and different? because she was different from you. She dared to go out with coloured hair!

Tilly is a lovely kid and she has the most amazing imagination, which makes her the person that she is today. She has had a crap few years and has had to deal with more than any 6 year old should have to deal with, but she is making her own mark on the world and I love her for that. So she is always asking for coloured hair, yes she wants it permanently coloured but that is a big NO! so I bought some sprays and asked her what she wanted. She actually wanted to have hair coloured the same as a mermaid crossed with the tail from her My Little Pony.

10 Reason That I am Rocking Motherhood

Thankyou to Amy from The Smallest Of Things for tagging me in the #RockingMotherhood post. I sometimes wonder if I do really rock this motherhood thing or if I just wing it along the way, so I am just going to write the post and hope that I can manage to fill the whole list of ten achievements that I have made as a mother, because it would be a bit embarrassing if I have to stop at 2 or 3.

So here we go

1/ My kid is still alive! that is obviously the most important one, we had goldfish once and they died because I forgot about them. But I actually do remember to feed and clothe my child.

2016 Was Awesome, Here Is 2017 - A Thank You To My Readers

This year I didn't do any new years resolutions because I have come to learn that I like myself for who I am and if others don't like me then they know where the door is. That and of course the fact that I have bipolar and I lose interest in everything after 5 minutes! I just cannot stick to anything - the fact that I still have a blog after 4 years actually amazes me (although you may see gaps of weeks where I just lose the will to live and it gets neglected hahaha).
