Burghley Horse Trials 2014 – in association with Joules

Sept. 15th 2014

Last weekend The Husband and I were very kindly invited to the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials by country clothier Joules, to help celebrate their Silver Jubilee…

Having recently moved from the city to the country and having finally unpacked into our beautiful new cottage, it was time to face reality and realise that Loubs and Louies are all well and good in the paved paradise of the city, but in deepest darkest Northamptonshire a girl needs be practical as well as pretty…

At last.

Hallelujah.

And that means one thing.

Grooming, with a capital G…

and with the prospect of unveiling my tarnished tootsies in new summer Loubs anytime soon it was time to call in the big guns for help…

Ben's Canteen - The Best Brunch in Battersea

Ben’s Canteen – The Best Brunch in Battersea

July. 24th 2014

So I’ve been a bad blogger and this is my first proper post of 2014.

I do have a good excuse though, sadly, as I mentioned the other day, here, I’ve been sick.

I’m getting better now though, so starting to back on blog form. Yey!

Anyhow…

The last meal I had out pre illness really was one to remember, thank goodness and it was so good, just the thought of it has helped pull me through the icky days.

Just look at this.

See what I mean? You can’t help but fantasise about a dish as dishy as that!

Where is this bastion of brilliant brunch I hear you cry?

I’m Back!

July. 22nd 2014

Did you miss me?

Well I for sure missed you…

Apologies I’ve been a bad blogger and away for so long, especially after such a rip-roaring start to My Blonde Reality but sadly I’ve had a rather shitty year so far and have been ill, so my reality (blonde or otherwise) hasn’t been much to talk about, aside from tears, tissues and triptans.

For those of you who know what a triptan is, will have gathered this has been migraine related, which is correct, though unbeknownst to me, there is such a think as an intractable migraine, which is bloody painful, a bloody nightmare and bloody hard to shift.

It has been 7 months of pretty much constant pain, but luckily, at long last, I finally seem to be winning!

Thanks to the folks at the National Migraine Centre and The Queen Square National Hospital for Neurology, along with my amazing husband and parents (who have had to put up with me for most of this, for which I will be eternally grateful), wider family and friends, I’m now slowly starting to get back on my feet and as part of my road to recovery I will be recapping the adventures I had at the end of 2013, which I was not well enough to share with you until now.

I will be back tottering around town before long and will no doubt be able to share some new adventures with you, but for now, I hope you enjoy these retrospective posts.

So it’s back to Reality… better late than never!

Giving Back At Crimbo: Save The Children Christmas Jumper Day 2013

Dec. 5th 2013

2013-12-04_22-41-06

Who doesn’t love a Christmas jumper?

What isn’t there to like?

We’ve all received one on Christmas day from a long lost Aunt, greeted it with a wan smile and worn it whilst stuffing ourselves with turkey.

It’s Christmas, it’s the law. That is just the way it is.

And this year, you get to do it twice, you lucky little elves…

Twice, I hear you cry?

Yes and it’s all for a good cause….
