Have you read this from Huffington Post (’7 things good mothers do that I’m not going to do any more’)? It made me chuckle. And it made me realise that I’ve already let go of certain things – for which read: not having to eat everything on your plate. My new mantra is: it’s fine, you don’t have to eat it, but there’s nothing else. Nor will I sail into battle over things my daughter will not eat (carrots, primarily). I’ll put them in sauces (she’ll eat them) and keep putting them on her plate (ever-hopeful that she might crack), but I refuse to entertain the vegetable equivalent of a raindance. I simply do not have the time or energy. And I probably should give myself a break if the house isn’t perfectly clean and tidy at the end of every day (but my eyes! My eyes! It offends my eyes!) But one of the points had not occurred to me and was totally liberating…

There’s nothing we love more than a spot of shopping – actual, online, window or otherwise. And Home Address‘ newly revamped online boutique has got us swooning with its carefully curated selection of pieces for the home. From beautiful velvet cushions to ceramics, candles and glassware, it’s the perfect choice for interiors addicts. We say put Easter Egg shopping on hold and head here instead. This is what we have our eyes on….
Mango is definitely having a moment. First noticed by Natasha last year, the Spanish brand has really upped it’s game with collections that are not only on the money fashion-wise, but are incredibly wearable and really well-priced. Having regularly shopped Mango some – ahem- years ago, it had dropped off my radar when the clothes no longer appealed to me, but that’s all changed. Walking into the Westfield store yesterday, there was a LOT that I could’ve bought. It was really quite scary. Here’s what I found…
Hop along, right into my little girl’s bedroom. How gorgeous are these rabbit cushions from new-to-me Little Cloud (£24 each in a variety of Liberty prints)? Perfect for Easter (and Easter Bunny fans – my daughter has gone to school with an Easter bunny hat for her bonnet parade this morning). I’m quite besotted. I also love the personalised name cushions – which would make gorgeous presents. This is one website to click now – it’s full of delights.
I do love a basket. I realised the other day that I have one in every room in the house. For toys, logs, laundry, bedding, paperwork, loo rolls… If only I had more rooms, I would have more baskets. And I love the idea of breezing around come summer, basket on arm, filled with flowers, freshly baked bread and a good novel. (Come on, let a girl dream.) Even though the reality is more along the lines of baby wipes, nappies, rice cakes, children’s books and Sophie the Giraffe, I can still tote them around in the basket of my dreams.
