    Why I am proud to be a Mum

    For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be a Mum, I didn’t have any grand designs to be a popstar, a Doctor, a vet or a policewoman. Family is what matters to me, always has, always will. This doesn’t mean that I don’t have personal ambitions, I worked hard at school, […]

    Far from perfect . . .

    I’m tired. My head hurts and I feel very flat. A few nights ago I was watching You’ve Been Framed with the Beans (they LOVE You’ve Been Framed) and one of the clips made resonated with me. It was a clip of a hamster running super fast in it’s wheel and then the wheel became […]

  • 021/366 – A tearjerker

    It’s fair to say that my relationship with Curly has struggled since Beanie Boy came along, not because I love him any less or because Curly is jealous of Beanie Boy but suddenly I struggled to find time (and I know that I am totally wrong for this). Beanie Boy has been very much a […]

  • Do you feel censored?

    When I first started blogging I didn’t really think about ‘who’ would be reading my blog, it was just somewhere to write about life with my family from ‘my’ point of view as a wife, mother and stepmum. All three of those roles can be rewarding and frustrating in equal measures because that is family […]
