Emotional school run

Today I almost had a lip wobbling moment on the school run. Every night when I pick Billy up from school, I walk through the gates, I make my way to one of the benches and I sit and wait for him. The playground is usually pretty quiet as parents pick up their other children […]

I love Costa even more now!

Guess who just got an email from her very favourite place in the world! Me! I emailed the CEO at Costa yesterday to tell him I love Costa more than life. I told him Costa keeps me sane on this journey and that it is my second home. I did not tell him that I […]

It’s national selfie day!

Apparently today is national selfie day! (There seems to be a day for everything these days) Here’s what I pulled together from us lot ? what a handsome bunch!

She won’t take her coat off!

She’s won’t take her coat off that she came in from school wearing, she won’t even take her hood down. She just wants to watch YouTube, she wouldn’t go in the hot tub and she doesn’t want to play. She fetched me a book, I read it but I could tell she wasn’t listening. She’s […]

After just about recovering from the last debacle he is now sporting a rather bright, rather purple ankle! […]

I’m here to tell you that you CAN go on holiday and that you should […]

Happy, Happy, In laws are back and I got Costa!

Quick update! I was quiet yesterday because I was celebrating! Did I win the lottery? ……. nope Did costa offer me sponsorship? …….. nope (though they bloody well should) Did I lose a few pounds?……… nope (in quids maybe but not in weight). So why was I so happy? Why did I contemplate cartwheeling down […]

Dear Dad part 2…. an explaination

Today is Fathers day. Today it is time I told my Dad’s story. Every Fathers day is a stark reminder that my Dad isn’t here. You’d think I’d be used to it by now given this is our 20th Fathers day without him but every single year it is a day tinged with sadness. Life goes on, […]
