Gigs – A Meme.

This seems quite fitting following the Rammstein review I posted a couple of days ago, but I have to confess, I was not willingly tagged, I nagged @motherventing and @babberblog until someone said, “Er, yeah, I tag you and stuff…whatever”, or words to that effect. So here it is, a meme about gigs. First Gig This is quite an impressive one, I think. I’d been to see local bands and stuff before this, the the …

Walk

This is for my Dad. If he were ever to read this blog, he’d know what it means. The rest of you just get the privilege of listening to Foo Fighters for six glorious minutes. Love you, Dad.

Get Crafty – A Royal Crown

Sausage has a great imagination, so when she asked me this morning to have a Royal Tea Party with her, I thought it only fitting that she have a proper crown to complete her outfit. I gathered up various bits from around the house and I’m pretty chuffed with what I came up with, so with the Queen’s Jubilee coming up I thought it’s quite good to share our little project. You’ll need: A cereal …

Rammstein at The O2

A few weeks ago, Husband and I were given the chance by Superbreak , who offer concert tickets and weekend breaks, to go and see Rammstein at The O2 arena and we jumped at the chance…only to be ill on the day and unable to go. Luckily, we knew someone who was able to take the tickets and review the show for Mum’s the Word, so without further ado, here it is: The O2 on the banks …

Happy Feet 2 Review

Sausage is a bit funny about films, there are only a few feature length titles that she’ll put up with, everything else gets the elbow after about 20 minutes. On the list of successes, we have Lilo and Stitch, Lilo and Stitch 2, Stitch the Movie (can you see a theme here?!) My Neighbour Totoro, Arrietty, Ponyo, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Rio and Finding Nemo, amongst others. On the list of “Hmm, not so much…” we have The …

Rebirth

It’s funny how life goes, isn’t it? You can be cruising along at a comfortable pace and then BAM! Something comes along and changes everything. Only, this life-changing event seems quite apt, it’s happened at a time that’s coincided with other events and I’ve woken up today feeling reborn. (No, not like a born-again Christian, you should now me better than that by now!) If you’re reading this, you’ll have cottoned on to the fact …

Six Months

My Dad texted me today. It said “It’s exactly 6 months today since I lost my sweetheart”. How can it possibly be six months already? But I checked and it is. Six long months since we’ve heard Lorraine’s voice or seen her face. Six months since we held out hope, right until the last second. It’s sunk in now. Or at least, 99% of the time it’s sunk in. Then I’ll be sitting there and …

Frankie and Benny’s Southend on Sea – A Mixed Review

Here at Mum’s the Word Towers we, along with myriad other bloggers and their families, were given a £50 voucher to take along to our local Frankie and Benny’s to give their menu and service the once over. We went on a Wednesday afternoon and it was moderately busy, with probably a third of the tables taken. We were seated promptly, although we were unclear when we walked in if we were supposed to seat …

Coughs, Colds and Easter Cupcakes

As I had a few days holiday owing to me, I decided to use them while Sausage was on her Easter break from nursery and because of my shift pattern, it’s worked out that I have a total of 17 days off. Which would have been great and we had a ton of plans, but Sausage and I have both had a horrible cough and cold since about 24 hours after our holiday started. We’re …
