Things I love today:  
Amazing, inspiring, self-employed women who seem to know exactly what I need to hear when I need to hear it (Emma, Annabel, Emily, I'm talking about you.) 
BBC World Service, and stories about things that had never even crossed my mind (did you know that the 2012 Olymipics fall over Ramadan? When Muslims aren't allowed to eat during daylight? When Muslim athletes aren't allowed to eat during daylight?Crazypants)  
Clients who send you the sweetest emails. 
Wedding industry power houses who champion sanity.   
Friends who love my babies and put up with my tourist-induced rages. 
My husband who has lost his voice and mimed 'I love you' when he got up this morning.

  4. Thank you so much for this kind mention.

    We all need a little lift every once in a while - you inspire me too in so many ways, you beautiful, hard working Mummy of two gorgeous twins you ;) {there's that photography thing you do too which is rather incredible!}.

  7. Or the most rambly of emails perhaps? ;) Thank you though x

  8. POWERHOUSES you say?? Hum.


  9. That picture makes me die every damn time I see it. Also it's pretty clear you bagged a good one, but then so did he.

  10. just an fyi about the olympics thing: that is true about muslims, BUT it's also true that in exceptional circumstances imams can waive the fasting and athletes can fast during another month, so there is a rower for example who is eating during the olympics and fasting at another time, and a sprinter who is still going to fast.


play nice.
