So here is my blog action plan aka rekindling my blogging mojo  I’m going to ditch schedules for a while and write what I want to write, when I want to write it. I know, I know…this means that I probably will stick to a better and bigger writing schedule than I’ve ever had simply because I’ve taken the (self-induced) pressure off.  I’m going to make everything go a lot faster by doing what I should have done a year ago and actually buy the external hard drive to back up.

I've taken a big breath, and tI’m going to bin the bits of my blog I don’t like and get back to basics with it – get the fun and mojo going again. I’m going to spend more time on the bits I love, and I’m going to stop doing the bits I don’t (And I won’t even give myself a stern talking to for doing them in the first place!).   I've built a six point plan to do this...

It’s a funny old thing, blogging. It consumes your day – a lot of the time you’re thinking about your blog, taking photos for it, letting people know you’ve mentioned them in a round up, replying to tweets and Instagram comments, planning blog posts.  But in and amongst all that it’s hard to find the time to actually write!  For ages I decided to focus on writing up my weekends – ‘lest I forget it’s the small things that make up a life well lived’.

Reliving some of the lost classic  of my youth with my son

How I went from a new mum, adamant my son would never watch TV, to a fully blown tv addict.

Did you know that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans?  Or that single use plastic items are on average used for five minutes and then discarded? They’re either recycled into items like fleece clothing which shed micro pellets of plastic every time they’re washed, which find their way into our water systems, our fish life and then into our food chain. Or they’re dumped in our water, clogging up our priceless seas and rivers and our marine life.

We learn that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans. Plus we find the best noodles in South Kensington.

It melts my heart that even at 9 years old Chiswick Boy still wants to cuddle his favourite characters. For the price of a quid dropped into the hat, this moment of joy is priceless!

Le Pain Quotidien is my favourite coffee shop chain – there’s one in Chiswick and I’ve also been to the one in Pasadena, California. Oh happy days!  We swung past the South Ken branch and nipped in for a glorious pavlova and coffee. We had takeouts, but what I love about eating in at Le Pain Quotidien is that coffee is served traditional French style, in white bowls.

The rather unimposingly-named ‘Oriental Food’ is on Thurloe Street next to South Kensingston tube.  Chiswick Daddy’s bento box with spicy tofu and mince was a bargainous £6.90. Chiswick Boy stuck to his all time favourite chicken noodles, while I had a huge pile of seafood noodles for £7.90.  Completely recommend this place. The food was hot, tasty and fresh, and we’ll definitely be back. In a city where noodles bars are ten a penny it’s always a delight 2 find a new one
