Shrek the Musical, based on the 2001 Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film tells the tale of a Scottish Green Ogre who, along with his noble steed, is challenged by Lord Farquaad to rescue a princess from a dragon-guarded tower. Seems pretty simple right?
Oh no, in true fairytale style it’s never THAT simple but in the end, Shrek falls in love with the princess and they live happily ever after. The End.

Back in August I visited the most instagrammable event of the year. FRIENDSFEST. (Could I BE any later with this review?)
Even though Friends ended 13 years ago it still has a major cult following and the lives of Chandler Bing, Phoebe Buffay, Monica Geller, Ross Geller, Rachel Green and Joey Tribbiani are still continuously aired on Comedy Central.
Friendsfest, hosted by Comedy Central is an annual celebration of the show. I attended its stint at Heaton Park in Manchester. For £26 myself and Maggie got our Friends geek on and visited the apartments of Joey and Chandler & Monica and Rachel. Continue reading “The one where Helen & Maggie went to Friendsfest”
Last month, whilst sipping champagne with baby spice at my first ever blogger party, I met Marie. A twenty something Midwife from Cornwall, who, at the age of 21, became one of the youngest midwives in the UK. After becoming a senior midwife, Marie found that many parents-to-be brought unnecessary items into hospital.

Organix Goodies, oh were do I start! If you read my blog you know that I have a lot of love for Organix Goodies. They are a staple item in my cupboard and obviously my changing bag. (My bag is practically filled with empty wrappers!)
Sebastian adores them and they are the perfect mid afternoon snack (especially when you’ve had a hard morning sitting in a pumpkin patch). Continue reading “Organix Goodies|| Great Taste • No Junk”
Fridays are for coffee dates || A flat white with a slice of cake…
I’ve been back at work now for one whole year! I honestly can’t believe it! I’m constantly telling people ‘I’ve just come back from maternity leave’ when in reality I haven’t.
I was off work for a mere 6 months! Crap isn’t it – but we bought a house… an old lady house to be more specific and well yeah, a mortgage and renovations don’t pay for themselves!
I may be back at work but i’ll forever have Fridays off (sorry boss) and on Fridays I have a coffee date with my two favourite men. A new tradition. Continue reading “Fridays are for coffee dates…”
