    London has had more than her fair share of tragedies....from terrorism to disasters like the fire at Kings X and the Moorgate train crash years ago and we stand strong and give thanks to those who protect us. So proud to be a Londoner 🇬🇧💔🙏

    I spent this afternoon in London. I met a friend for lunch near Liberty (took this photo on my way to meet her) then went for a meeting in a coffee shop near Victoria Station. While I was chatting to the lovely ladies I'd met, talking about how crazy the world has become, just down the road on Westminster Bridge, terrible events were unfolding. Today's one of those days where everything is put into perspective, worries seem less important and stresses seem trivial. Stay strong London 💪 #wearenotafraid

    Do you know what I did REALLY well at today? Procrastination. I procrastinated like a boss. Well, actually, not like a boss because I'm sure most bosses don't procrastinate. They get shiz done! But instead of beating myself up for not ticking much off my to do list today, I'm going to shrug my shoulders, have a bubble bath, get an early night & make sure I attack tomorrow 💪

    businessmum

    Yup. Last week I was procrastinating hard- I was resisting writing my book proposal. I bought a clip on fringe on eBay as a distraction tactic. Random! In the end I put my big girl pants on and got the job done. Now I have a fringe I didn't want! Procrastination makes you do odd things!

    MORNING. Good weekend everyone? We had a lovely quiet one which started with the 6 year old going to Beavers for the first time (had to sign a form giving permission for her to start fires 🔥💪love it) and ended with a HUGE roast dinner 🍗cooked by my mother in law. Come on Monday, let's be having you 👍

    I'm looking at my boring Bran Flakes this morning and thinking about this time last week when I was eating waffles with bacon and maple syrup at @watergatebay. After two days of thick fog, the sun was breaking through the clouds while we ate breakfast - it was such a lovely moment! Today though, it's back to cereal in my kitchen and the school run. 📷 by the lovely @capturebylucy #joulesxwatergatebay

    So I went out last night, had 3 drinks (OK so one of them was a MASSIVE gin and tonic) and subsequently, spent the whole of today feeling hungover. Still managed to get loads done though (💪💪💪) and meet friends for a (carb-heavy) lunch. So now, I'm not even a little ashamed to say... I'm going to bed. It's not even 9.30pm! Rock. And. Roll.

    Bradford-On-Avon has some good door action going on. You know, if you're into that kind of thing 👀 There's a post up on the blog about my girls' weekend away with my mum and the six-year-old. In other news, I'm off out tonight for dinner with two lovely people that I used to work with on a teen magazine. We are going to drink wine and reminisce about the days when we were paid to interview Busted and Girls Aloud, and ate as many free canapés as we could at showbiz parties 🥂🍣🌭🍔🍾

    Who wants coffee? I'm making lists while I drink mine this morning. A busy couple of weeks with work has meant that life admin has totally slipped. I'm late handing in £12 for the 6 year old's school trip, we've got no fresh food in the fridge (lots of mouldy food though), the laundry basket is overflowing... but today I'm going to get back on track. Wish me luck 💪💪💪
