Welcome to a rather regal edition of Brilliant Blog Posts! No need to curtsy…oh well, go on then if you insist 😉
This week I’m sharing a post on the premier of ITV’s brand new must-see drama ‘Victoria’ which took place at Kensington Palace no less last week-I feel so flipping grateful and a bit shocked when I receive invites like this and I felt privileged to watch the first episode with cast and crew at such an intimate event.
Starring the gorgeous and extremely talented Jenna Coleman, Victoria is frankly going to knock your socks off so don’t leave the couch on Aug 28th at 9pm for British drama at its best combining lavish production values with mesmerising performances and a gripping storyline that focuses on the early years of the notorious monarch, Queen Victoria.
How stunning does she Jenna look in her floral Erdem dress…What a beauty!

And, with the new school term fast approaching (and Scottish school already starting), I’m also linking up a post sharing a week of perfect balanced lunch boxes with Hartley’s Jelly Pots so don’t miss that either!
I want to end on a slightly sombre but hopefully uplifting note.
Today, the family car caught on fire during a general servicing- and I feel so grateful that my family and I were not in it at the time. We so easily could have been and it’s because of PMT (something I ironically get cranky about here that we didn’t go for a long drive to the supermarket last night)… I had a niggly feeling something was wrong with the car yesterday and despite not being an old vehicle, could smell something off, something no one else could smell either. Please, people, always follow your gut on these things, however ridiculous they might seem.
What happened today has contextualised many silly worries for me. I am just feeling so grateful we are safe.
I am just feeling so incredibly grateful we are all safe.
I want to say a great big thank you to you guys too, I feel like you lot are my mates, always there to support and champion me and one another too.
I feel honoured and touched you choose to join me every week to share your posts and videos here, to comment, RT or simply drop an email to show you care. I don’t feel I’m anyone particularly special, just a blogger who wants to connect with other people and make them feel they are not alone. Whilst my life can be glamorous at times (I’m usually banging out posts in my PJs in reality), my family is my world.
I never feel special or superior to anyone, I am a blogger and a mama who simply wants to connect with others and make them feel they’re not alone. I want everyone to truly know their worth and to simply go out into this online and real life world and make their dreams happen.
Whilst my life can sometimes be glamorous (I’m usually banging out posts in my PJs in reality) and my family is my world.
I know this is one ugly cry face soppy end to the week but I wanted you to know how much I value every one of you who visits my blog, every single day. Thank you.
Big Fat Greek Love to you all xx
