Who’s Doll Is It Anyway?

Who’s Doll Is It Anyway?

Our first foray into the American Girl Place in New York with The Kid was a bit of an eye opener and I have to confess that we did have a bit of a giggle at the craziness of it all. Parents (mainly dads) carrying multiple red bags, sitting in the waiting room of the...

It’s Up To You in New York!

It’s Up To You in New York!

There really is nothing quite like arriving in Manhattan for the first time.  It really is JUST like you see it on TV!  I was so excited for Iron Man and the The Kid as it was their first visit and I wanted them to experience it as I had (almost 20 years ago). This...

Living The Dream

Me : "I'm going to do a dark wash" Iron Man : "Ooh I may have something to add to that" I suspect he is coming on to me as I know he is referring to underwear. Don't think I can't spot an advance when I see one. It feels like a little celebration.  A joint coming...

Mind the ‘Age’ Gap

Mind the ‘Age’ Gap

Age. This one reared it's head for me whilst travelling on the Central Line  to London recently. It got me to wondering how we determine the age of another. How efficient can one be at making such assumptions. When is it OK to imply that someone is older and more...

No Bag Thanks, I’ll Just Wear It.  The Sequel.

No Bag Thanks, I’ll Just Wear It. The Sequel.

I saw it coming of course. I even warned of it in the blog back in July. It was on my mind for a long time before that and interestingly my post on Carrier Bag Etiquette has been the most commented on since I started. I would like to say that I have fully embraced the...
