Hi, how are you? Are you looking forward to the weekend? I’ve had a really quiet week with no plans this week — I’ve been at home nearly all of it just catching up on washing, housework, work, blogging, life admin etc … and I feel much better for it!

So it was officially deemed as the first day of spring on Tuesday this week, and OH MY does it feel good to be able to say that out loud. This was the winter that felt as though it was the longest one ever (it wasn’t, it was only as long as every other winter) but due to a few…

When Alexandra Burke took part in Strictly Come Dancing last year she got a lot of grief on social media. She was slammed for being ‘too confident’, for wanting to win ‘too much’. Many people didn’t warm to her, thinking she had FAR too much self-belief. She spoke out a few days ago saying that the British public in general…
