Instagram and Cushion Love : Yellow Velvet

Amongst my loves (and I have many) I  have a passion for Instagram, I think its my favourite form of social media, and this comes from someone who disliked it with a passion to begin with.  If you ask Tall Dad (my hubby) he would say its more like an obsession. He berates me every time we go for a meal, and I have to instagram before anyone can tuck in. Continue Reading


Holiday : Orlando, Florida

Holiday : Orlando, Florida

(I was singing Holiday, as I wrote the title for this post in my best Madonna-esk voice)

We have had a fantastic summer, I really feel like we have crammed lots of things in. We only got back from our family holiday on Saturday, so I though I would share it Instagram style.

First up, who came…

Orlando The Ana Mum Diary

Tall Dad, Miss N who is now the grand old age of 10! Miss A, her first trip on a plane and Gidders….me!

I plan on writing up lots of hints and tips for anyone wanting to travel to Orlando Florida, especially as a family and visiting the Parks. We have been 5 times now, so we’ve picked up a few things along the way.

The food:

You are spoilt for choice with places to eat in Orlando, they cater for so many tastes and wallets. I am going to give recommendations of our family favourites. New places we have tried, and places we go back to time and time again!

Where we stayed

Orlando stay

I became a little obsessed about the tree-lined avenues where we stayed, there was something so magical about them. However again there are so many options available in Orlando, from Hotels, condo’s and Villas.  We have done a few of those now, so I can’t wait to share those with you.

The Theme Parks:

disney and universal

I am going to cover as many hints and tips as I can, so hopefully anyone going to Orlando, and visiting either Disney or Universal with small children will feel more confident about the trip. I can’t claim to know everything, but we love it so much and are undeniably passionate!  I hope that it will be useful especially to first timers.  I really would welcome people to leave their own hints and tips on the posts too.

Thank you for reading

I’ve a confession…

I’ve a confession…


I know it’s supposed to be hip way of filtering your photographs, and sharing them, however I really don’t like it.

I’m just not that into you Instagram.

There I’ve said it.

It’s not exclusive to the Instagram app, I just don’t get why you would want to take a perfectly good image and alter it, so it looks…well naff, grainy and poor quality.

Apparently Instagram today has been sold to Facebook for 1 Billion Dollars…really??

I attempted an experiment, it not a great one, as to be honest after fiddling around with the app, I found it so blinkin frustrating, I wanted to throw my phone.

Here is the original Tall Dad and I, on a night out.

It was taken with my old phone, so not the best quality anyway.
