Friday, 13 October 2017 “I’m going to  pace myself” I said.  I need to make life easier, I thought. Less work, less stress, more time for the family. Six months later and here I am, living in a renovation project, surrounded by builders on my day off, watching them re-plaster almost every wall  on  the […]

21 April 2017 Apparently, I’m looking “bedraggled”. So to the approval of Little Sis, I decided to do something about it and booked an evening of pampering and make up.  Little Sis decided to come too and took charge of the arrangements.  Tonight is the night and as planned, I drive to her house and […]

16 April 2017 – A Silver Lining Well, I can now fit into my entire wardrobe. Bad news for House of Fraser, Zara and John Lewis but a big fat, money saving silver lining around the 11 crappy days of constant sickness for me. Maleficent may have taken up permanent residence for the term of […]

2 February to 24 February 2017 – Should I just put the heels on and hope for the best?  I have a limp and it’s slowing me down.  The morning rush is more of a hobble this morning. Flats or heels?  Neither make it easier to walk.  Should I just put the heels on and […]

1 February 2017 – “Ouch, cod, ouch cod…cod…cod…cod!!” Thank goodness it’s Grannie day. I woke up with joint pains today. Things that hurt: walking; lifting; coughing; laughing; cuddling H; attempting to do anything constructive with my hair; applying eyeliner; stairs; holding my tea cup; pressing the unlock button on the car key; I limp to the […]

Kind Gestures and Caring Words I wrote this post (Thank Goodness for Barbra Streisand) when I first launched my blog but I think it is time for a rewrite.    When you’re busy and tired and have a lot to remember, it’s hard not to get lost in the everyday.  The quirky, slightly mad, care free parts […]
