Gone But Not Forever !

Like many bloggers, I have taken a break from blogging over Christmas so that I can spend some quality time with my family. I have been a touch poorly over recent weeks and have felt the need to regroup and refocus my thoughts for 2015.



The Mad Mummy Musings has been a touch abandoned this past year. It hasn’t been intentional however my online boutique, my green lifestyle blog, my nutrition studies and looking after my beautiful girls has I’m afraid meant that something had to slip and that’s this space.

It’s been a busy year with many new lessons learned. I’m exceptionally excited about the year ahead and after several years of coming to terms with many life challenges, I finally feel I’m getting my identity back again and can truly look to the future with a renewed “joie de vivre”.

Over the past week, I’ve enjoyed taking a step back from the hubbub of life and I’m on a mission to de-clutter and re-organise my living space for the coming year. It’s feeling good to make space for the new to enter our lives.

I will be back blogging here more frequently in the coming year. I’ve always said that The Mad Mummy Musings is a space where I can write in a different way to my green lifestyle blog. It’s a more personal space and a place where I can share my adventures with the girls which is always fun.



As we approach New Year’s Eve I’m focussing on Tink’s 4th birthday which she shares with this special day. Where has that time disappeared to? It’s hard to believe that 4 years ago I was bringing a beautiful new life into the world. And what an amazing addition to our family she has become.

So my lovely readers, if you are still out there, then I’m still here. I may have gone for a while, but I can assure you it’s not forever and I’ve not forgotten you.

I will see you again soon but in the meantime I’d like to wish you and your friends and family a Happy, Healthy, Peaceful and Abundant 2015 ! Something tells me it’s going to be a great year.

Until next time xx

Hotel Chocolat Father’s Day Competition Giveaway

THIS COMPETITION GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.

It’s fair to say that I’ve been neglecting you all recently and for that I apologise. It has been a mad few months for me with my lovely little online boutique, Sophia’s Choice and it has taken up rather a lot of my time. As you know I also write my Green Lifestyle Blog of the same name and I’ve been catching up on posts there for the past couple of months. But I’ve not run away never to be seen again and I intend to be back here very soon with new posts to bore inspire you with !

So, in way of an apology I’m back with a lovely competition giveaway for you. And this one’s for all those lovely Dads out there. In just over two weeks time, we in the UK & the US will be celebrating Father’s Day on 15th June. It also happens to be my hubby’s birthday that day too, so he’s in for lots of goodies and pressies, lucky chap.

Back in December you may remember that I reviewed a fabulous box of chocolates from Hotel Chocolat. You can read my review here. Hotel Chocolat make the most divine chocolates and in the end we bought some of those “Mingles & Jingles” for the girls and a Christmas Wreath for family members to indulge in after our review. The company is fair trade having their own ‘engaged ethics’ programme, they have a chocolate tasting club and are constantly bringing out new products to keep the chocolate connoisseur happy.
