Sponsored Video: James Corden Dances in the Street & Lip-Syncs to Estelle’s Free

I am winging my way to New York as you read, but wanted to leave you with this little gem of a video featuring James Corden lip-syncing to Estelle’s Free in the streets of London. The video is part of Cadbury’s new campaign to #freethejoy and despite the gloomy weather, it really did make me chuckle out loud. James is one of my favourite people to watch on screen and this all singing, all dancing side of him just makes me like him even more!  For the first few seconds of the video, I actually thought it really could be James singing as Estelle’s voice strangely suits him. We may just see him at The Brits again after all… So here it is, folks. Put your feet up, make a cup of tea and prepare to be entertained. Hope that has brightened up your day a little bit while you think of me in New York, where I intend to free some joy of my own in the form of good friends, good food, good wine and good shopping. …

“You’re a stinky poo-poo head”

“You’re a stinky poo-poo head” my 3-year old said to me this morning before dissolving into a fit of giggles. “I’m going to do a pop on your lap!” he howled out loud as I attempted to manoeuvre him into his underpants, one leg at a time. “Smell my bum” he laughed after he actually did. “Are we going to have poo for breakfast?” he added cheekily as we made our way downstairs. “It’s Peppa Poo!” he pointed out to me as we passed his collection of Peppa Pig sticker books. “I need a poo” he announced conveniently, just as we were about to leave the house. There is so much talk of poo in my house at the moment that I have been forced to create rules around the appropriate use of the word.  Like, no poo talk at the dinner table; no poo talk in front of strangers; and absolutely no shouting out of “Mummy are you doing a big stinky poo” when we are visiting a friend’s house (again). When Zachy and his cousin get together, the …

Sleepless in South London

3 amazing things happened this week: 1. Zachy dropped his morning nap 2. My new system for getting us all ready in the morning actually works AND saves us time! 3. My Greek God(zilla) husband and I celebrated 5 years since our first date and 1 year since our fab wedding Adios morning nap, Hola morning walks in the park I don’t like to brag (much) but my 19.5 month old baby boy has always been an excellent sleeper.  He has been sleeping through the night since he was 7-weeks old and takes regular naps throughout the day.  Even in the womb, he slept 15 days past his due date and even then, was in no particular hurry to get his push on and come out into the world (36 hours… I’m just saying). Zachy dropped his late afternoon siesta some months ago but has showed no signs of giving up his beloved morning nap, which if left undisturbed, could easily last for 2 hours.  This has worked out very well so far for my shower/breakfast/sky planner …

First sleep-over

This is the first Sunday morning, or any morning in fact, in the past 19 months since my son was born that I haven’t woken up with him.   This is in itself, both a treat and a trauma. While we have slipped away for a bit of R&R at The Richmond Hill Hotel, he has spent the night with his YiaYia & Papou (Grenglish for Grandmother & Grandfather) a mere 5 minutes away in Wimbledon. YiaYia has been looking forward to this night since the very first mention of it last October. When we arrived to drop him off yesterday afternoon, she already had 4 delicious Greek dishes on the go in the kitchen, some homemade (low salt) houmous, a huge bowl of jelly and all of his favourite fruits chilling in the fridge all ready for snacking on.  It’s Baby Room Service at it’s very best and puts The Richmond Hill Hotel to shame, but more on that later… Laid out in his bedroom (poor Auntie BB has been downgraded to a ground floor room) were …
