Making Memories and Taking the PIXMA Challenge

Making Memories and Taking the PIXMA Challenge

I am rubbish at printing photographs. it’s mad really as I treasure my girls, and the though of losing any part of their growing up fills me with panic and makes me pull a scary face. I’m serious. It’s all raised eyebrows, crinkly forehead and ‘gurny’, like a very stressed out tortoise. Yet I still […]

Happy 14 Miss E

Happy 14 Miss E

Once upon a time there was a little girl. She was funny, smart, loving, silly, kind, sometimes grumpy, beautiful, small and wise, and not at all like an owl. Then she turned 13, and she was…   ….a little taller but still funny, smart, loving, silly, kind, sometimes a little grumpy, beautiful, and wise, and […]

I had a dream

…in which my Mum revealed to me that my name, ‘Joanne Elizabeth ,Beaufoix’, was actually, wait for it, ‘Joanne Elizabeth Brave McPaul Beaufoix’ Is it not fabulous? I might just keep it.  It has a certain ring to it right? No?   Ok.   I do love the weird stuff my brain does in dreams. […]

Nokia Lumia 520 on Three Review

Miss M is 9 years old. She has an ipod. She loves playing on the ipad and the pc, but she doesn’t have a phone. I think that’s fine. There is no situation currently faced in her life that makes me believe she needs one. But…there is WANT. And I have been thinking about it, maybe […]

The People’s ID BOT Project – I love this

I have  a new friend.  He is cute, intelligent, good with money, and I trust him.  In fact I trust him so much he is privy to some extremely personal information. He is also blue and has a flashing green light bulb on the top of his head, but it takes all sorts right?? Let […]

Sometimes she scares me

We’re driving home. Me and the 9-year-old. She’s quiet. Staring across me out of the window as I drive. Suddenly she hunches and draws up her knees, her hands go to her mouth and she cackles out a “Whoops.” Me: “What’s up M?” Miss M: “I was imagining I was controlling a man in the […]

TinkerBell and the Pirate Fairy

TinkerBell and the Pirate Fairy

We’ve always been big TinkerBell fans at chez Beaufoix. Miss M is the proud owner of all four earlier films and they’ve been watched over and over and over and over again. I have to admit the first time we saw TinkerBell I wasn’t expecting a lot. But we loved it. Gorgeous animation, well thought out […]

Proof that I am a very good daughter as well as a fabulous mum and part time super hero

Proof that I am a very good daughter as well as a fabulous mum and part time super hero

I love my Mum. She’s always there when we need her, loves my girls to little bits and pieces, and doesn’t mind when I refer to her as Granny pants. (Ok, maybe she minds a little bit.) But this week she owes me. Because this weekend it is her birthday. And if Misses E and […]

Yuletide ponderings – except not really anything to do with Christmas

It’s been a weird year for me and my little blog.  I kind of fell out of love with it for a while.  And it felt ok not to write.  Not to be around.  But then when someone decided to stick a spanner in the works, probably due to my supporting a friend whom they […]
