The first post for a while and one which took a bit of a random journey into the scary place that must be my sub-conscious!
It's the final countdown to Brighton. Training done, now just to hope it all comes together on the day!
Forget the birthing horror stories… here are some of the realities of having children that not one single person tells you before you make ‘that’ life choice! The ‘Stroppy Sevens ‘ are an actual thing and they are WAAAAAAY harder to deal with than the terrible twos or threenagers! We are currently living the ‘Stroppy… Continue reading What nobody tells you about having children……
They say it takes, on average, 66 days to form a habit. Well, I would like to know exactly who 'they' are and introduce them to my (& just about anyone else's) children. You see my eldest has seen well over 2190 days and my youngest over 1095 days. And I am pretty certain that,… Continue reading Habit forming
Okay - I know that it's generally a pretty serious business raising small, completely dependent people into decent, kind and considerate members of society who will (hopefully) look after us in our old age.

I admit that this tends to be in fits and starts where I’ll catch up on weeks at a time! I’m going to start with a couple of topical rants.… Continue reading Rants and Raves
…..with a twist! No fizz, frocks or fancy restaurants here! This weekend it was just ‘the girls team’ at home as The Husband was away Saturday morning through to Sunday lunchtime. Ordinarily, I REALLY look forward to the weekends because The Husband is home and I can, deliberately, step back (a bit) from the children.… Continue reading A Girly Weekend
