Best and Worst: How's your first week back at work been?

Hello everyone and welcome to Best and Worst 2015.

For those of you who are back at work this week, my commiserations and hearty good wishes that you can still vaguely recollect the holiday that was. For those of you who are still holidaying, screw you, lucky bastards. (Kidding. Sort, of).

While there are tragically already many painful events to reflect on in 2015, I am going to try and remain positive – refusing to wallow in the sadness of ‘worsts’ and instead give you a whopping three ‘bests’ this week.

Jamila Rizvi.

BEST: As you may have noticed by now, we have launched the new look Mamamia. The website has genuinely never looked so good or been so easy to navigate. We’re very proud of it. There are some exciting new functions you’ll want to test drive immediately, less of what you didn’t like and more of what you did.

As with any new piece of technology, there have been a few minor hiccups and I apologise to any readers who have been effected. We’ve pulled the socket out of the wall a few times, switched everything off and on again – so it’s 100% fixed. In all seriousness though, we’re doing our best to resolve any issues quickly and you can email [email protected] if you’re still having problems.

BEST: This weekend I am off to Jeep Portsea Polo event, where I am being hosted by the lovely Peroni and Tempus Two (how many brand mentions can you fit in a single sentence, eh?) I am seriously pumped because this is the closest I will ever get to being an actual royal. I am going to channel my inner Kate Middleton and presume I will wake up with a brand new expensive wardrobe and effortlessly perfect hair on Saturday morning.

I’m not going to pretend I have ever watched polo before or that I understand it but the Philly Fashions on the Field (being run by Philadelphia Cheese!) are going to be glorious. Especially because they’re having a male and female competition this year. I’m also looking forward to indulging my pregnant appetite in all sorts of glorious food (although sadly not wine).

BEST: My new husband and I (we’ve been married three weeks and I still can’t say ‘husband’ without giggling like a schoolgirl) found out the sex of our baby yesterday. While we didn’t have a preference for sex at all, we’re sky high on happiness right now because it’s all starting to feel VERY real.

Enough from me. What’s been happening in your world?
