Hooray for March!

Hello! I hope you’re all well.

Finally, it’s March! My favourite month of the year, because it’s my birthday this month, and also Mother’s Day. A double whammy of treats!

After January felt like it had 509867 days in it, the next part of the year seems to be flying by!

We survived half term – just! I took the kids and some friends to the London Science Museum, which is always fun.

If you follow me on social, you will have seen that I grew some weird lump on my knee – it wasn’t pretty – I won’t subject you to a photo here!

Anyway, they did an MRI and thankfully nothing sinister and they drained it. Which didn’t hurt at all, for anyone that has this procedure lined up, but it’s pretty gross! I had to wear a very dramatic bandage for a few days, but got zero sympathy from the kids!

Anyway, I’m back on form now, which is great as I need to get to work in the garden. It took a bit of a battering when we had the building work done and some of our fence fell in the storm so I’m hoping to get stuck in any day now!

I’ve got my eye on these plants –

Some hardy Gladioli

Malva collection

And some dahlias

Do let me know how your garden is going – I need inspiration and motivation!

But I have to tell you, the most terrifying and amazing thing is happening to me this weekend… If you’ve been reading my blogs for a while, you will know last year, I found my half-sister. Same dad, different mum. We haven’t seen each other in 34 years! On Friday I jump on a plane and travel to Portugal where she lives, to meet her.

I’m so nervous!!! Weirdly I’m fixated on what to wear! I don’t want her to think I’m a scruff, but I don’t want to be too dressy! Isn’t it silly the things we worry about!? As if she’ll care! LOL!

She works for an airline and recently sent me this pic – they had laid on a special flight for refugees and these were two beautiful refugee children arriving safely.

I’ll of course let you know how it goes.

Just to let you know right now though, we have some Today’s Special Values on pre-launch!

A huge 4-piece Anti Aging Skincare Collection from Estee Lauder – £260 value for £92.94 and on three Easy Pay interest-free instalments!

Also the Hisense A4GTUK 40” Smart TV with Alexa – £249 no P&P and on four Easy Pay interest-free instalments of £62.25! AMAZING!!!!

Thanks for reading my blog and I’ll be in touch soon.

But I can’t sign off without reaching out to those of you with loved ones in Ukraine right now – my heart breaks for you and you’re in my thoughts.

Sending you all my love,
