I've mentioned before that a lot of our moving on process has been "good days and bad days", much the same as illness or grief. I think all parents have good days and bad days, to be honest. All people, even. Sometimes I have bad days. Really bad days. Days where I can't shake the … Continue reading Good Days and Bad Days
Things have been so hectic lately! A lot has changed for us, but mostly for the better. I'll try to start from the beginning: I have started work - officially! The Boyfriend has opened his business after a lot of sleepless nights and hard work, and I am in charge of reception and social media … Continue reading Life Lately…
My daughter cried this morning, because she doesn't think it is fair that a "nasty man with carpet hair" is in charge of America.
Okay so the first week back at school since Christmas... Kicked my arse. However, I was content telling myself that after the second week I would be back in the swing of things.

Flaky, as in, sometimes I don't reply to your text for a few hours. I admit that I am the flaky parent. I'll apologise too, … Continue reading The Flaky Parent
It's pretty common for kids to run a little riot in the days after Christmas. All the excitement, the new toys and the sugar - they're bound to be a little hyper. What happened in my house this year though, shocked me. The sheer volume of presents that my daughter got this year meant that … Continue reading Glitter Glue and Influenza
