Hi, I’m Brigitte and welcome to my blog !

I first decided to start a blog sometime before I got married in 2012. I didn’t have a clue how to go about creating a blog. I came from an age when the only keyboard you clapped eyes on was that of a typewriter, and even then I was woefully hopeless and only ever mastered one finger typing! Creating my  first blog A Fifty something Bride was very much a case of trial and error, and boy was there lots of errors! Despite it looking amateurish and the writing was even more so, I was incredibly proud of it and felt a huge buzz of excitement and achievement whenever I pressed the publish button.

That first blog was very much about planning mine and Mr R’s forth coming nuptials. Once the deed had been done, blog number one was put to bed, and blog number two was born. You might think that there was a distinct lack of imagination with my choice of title, but I wanted it to be a continuation of Something Bride. Same random posts, same amateurish writing. If you want to follow an all singing, all dancing blog, then you are going to be sorely disappointed. But if you want to read my ramblings about anything and everything, then you will make this one finger typist very happy indeed!

So, apart from being a dinosaur when it comes to understanding anything remotely technical to do with computers, what can I tell you about me.

1 I’m in my fabulous fifties (hence the title of my blog)

2 I’m married to Mr R. Height wise we are totally incompatible. He is 6ft 6. I am 5ft nothing. We look silly walking hand in hand but we really don’t give a hoot!

3 I am mother to son number one and son number two. Both are now big and one is now a husband and a dad. Despite them being big, I still worry that they might burn themselves when they make hot drinks.

4. I am a trainee nana. I now have a very good reason to go all gooey about anything girlie and pink!

5. My job means that at Christmas I get to use a lot of glitter…YAY! The downside is that I have to stand in a wet or cold playground and prevent children from getting into a toodo when a game of It goes horribly wrong!

6. I have applied twice for The Great British Bake Off. Why I’m not in that tent is a mystery!!

7. My dream is to own a teashop/bakery by the sea in Cornwall. I bet I’m not the only one!

8. My legs are too short and thick to wear boots. I would really, really love to wear boots !

One thing I have discovered I love doing over the past few months is writing reviews. This is something I would like to develop. If you would like me to review your product, book, eaterie, service etc for no charge then please get in touch. My email is bmckinlay@hotmail.co.uk

  1. boots…i discovered duo boots some time ago who sell by foot size and by calf size…they recently changed hands and now call themselves Ted and Muffy… I don’t know if they kept the sell by calf size thing…before I found them I had given up on ever wearing boots

  2. I walked past their shop in Milsom Street in Bath only last week. I didn’t notice a name change, but they were still advertising that they did different calf measurments. I need to hint to Mr R very loudly and frequently that his wife would love a Christmas present that’s boot shaped!
