How to be nice.
A day at Wimbledon with Robinsons.
Do you know the ingredients to a perfect day? Well, I do *smug face.
Now Beyoncé could well be an 'earth mother' for all I know and what exactly is that anyway I hear you cry... to me it's a wade of days ahead of me filled with fun times with my kids.
Life can be a little bit surreal at times and in some respects it can feel, well, a little bit full circle. I know I'm being ambiguous but bare with me... On Thursday night I attended the film première of Eddie the Eagle, a movie made by Lionsgate UK, a company I used to work for.
I've been on the receiving end of 'Mean Girl' style behaviour in the past and I bet you have too.
What a whirlwind of a weekend. Is it over already?! Weep. As most weekends go, it was all about precious quality time with family and friends. And surprisingly, this weekend was all about snow time too!
I've always been a bit of a girl's girl-I'm still friends with many of my oldest girlfriends from school, sixth form and university then from working in the film industry; I love how empowering good female friends can be! I'd be lost without them!
It's funny how things can work out just when you need them to...I was feeling a bit down in the dumps that I'd not seen some of my closest London buddies for what feels like forever when I received a text from my male best friend Will that he'd be in town for an anesthetist conference pretty much round the corner from where I live in Yorkshire-yay!
This family LOVES Liverpool, I nearly studied English at the university there before opting for the bright lights of London and Goldsmiths, University of London- but now we live in Leeds, we like to visit it a lot-for culture, shopping, great food and family fun.
If you follow this here blog, you will know that London is where I have lived for the last 11 years until approximately 6 months ago when I moved back to my hometown of Leeds.
Argh, friendship divorce...I've been meaning to write this post for a while and although it might well sound controversial, I don't mean it to be. I first read about 'Friendship Divorce' in one of the glossies and it really resonated with me at the time. I think once you have a child, you are forced to prioritise, you suddenly have no time for bull****, negativity and clearly friendships which don't work.
