Changing the World from the Bottom Up

I love this. Researchers in the UK are putting time and money into a very special project. It’s a project that could change lives for the better, save marriages and enhance office environments across the nation, and maybe even the world. So is it cancer research? A study into combating global warming? How to grow […]

Is it just me, or do beds get nosier at night?  And no I don’t mean our bed, as in mine and Mr B’s, but Miss M’s bed.  You see, I do that terrible thing that parents are really not meant to do.  I lie with her until she goes to sleep.  I blame Mr […]

Joeee Love In and Dr Who

If you’ve been drawn here by the words ‘love-in’ and are expecting some weird and raunchy encounter between Joaquin Phoenix, Britney Spears, Colin Firth and Beyonce then you’re in the wrong place, sorry. And if you’ve arrived by way of the tag ‘self love’ then again this might not be quite the thing you’re looking […]

Life changing decisions

I’m not normally the kind of person to make New Year’s Resolutions.  I tend to shy away from the more formal kind of promise as I generally fail and then I feel really bad.   Last year though, I managed to avoid chocolate for a whole month with Holl and was one of Cami‘s Fit […]

Hmmmm.   So wordpress (or my brain), did something weird yesterday and the post I thought I published had to be republished today although it had yesterdays date on it which makes me think that I am not going mad and I definitely did publish it yesterday, weird.  (And breathe) Anyway, so, when you’ve done […]

I blame George Clooney

Do you ever get that feeling that your kids are so cute you should probably draw moustaches on them? I had that thought last night as I peeped in on their sleeping forms, both curled foetal like, each facing their respective walls, small noses tucked beneath warm soft blankets.  Miss M was snuggled between her heart cushion and […]

Animal Lover?

Isn’t it weird that we often compare the things we love to other things we love? For example I think the singer Norah Jones has a voice like chocolate, smooth and rich and velvety.  Nothing offensive there right? So as a big nature lover I often use the medium of ‘animal’ to describe my loved ones. […]

The lovely plumber, Dave, is in the kitchen fixing our boiler, while myself, Miss M, cousin ME, cousin baby J and Granny are in the living room.  The door is closed as we try to keep the warmth from the fire close to our chilled bones.  Miss M is drawing pictures on Christmas cards for […]

Rock and Roll Suicide

 As I sit in the centre of the highest tier of Nottingham Royal Concert Hall which slopes down steeply towards a sheer drop to the stalls below, I am suddenly struck by a surge of adrenalin, a rush of panic and a certainty that I am going to fall, or even… ..jump.  Hurl myself into […]

Random Ponderings of sleep deprived mother

Why is it that jobs that you think will take about an hour or so usually take about 5?  Answers to jo@jobeaufoix.com Anyway, it is 11.46pm and I have just returned from my parents house where I was helping my dad out with a few jobs. Mr B is beside me fast asleep but not […]
