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 […]

Tuesday 17 January 2017 – Sister Act This month’s exciting event is a trip to the Theatre with Little Sis and Mum to see Alexandra Burke in Sister Act. Hubby is in charge of nursery duty and childcare.  Dropping H at nursery, I tell her that Daddy will be collecting her this evening.  She looks […]

January 2017 Well, here we are again. January is cold and dark and hard work. Hubby is back to doing early mornings and H and I are back to the morning slog.  It’s so much harder immediately after Christmas.  My body has started to rely on the ease of relaxing mornings in a bath robe, […]

25 December 2016 – Christmas Day I am writing this retrospectively because with 12 adults and 3 children to feed and water, there was more chance of Honey donning a Christmas hat and singing “We Wish you a Merry Christmas,” than there was of me making contemporaneous notes. Not that I actually did any of […]

22 December 2016 – Merry Christmas Today is the last day in the office before we close for Christmas. We have Christmas music on loud and enjoy festive, fattening drinks from the new drive through Costa Coffee.  I manage to sneak in two Barbra Streisand songs but otherwise FP is in charge of the music. We […]

QUICK INTERRUPTION – 25 February 2017  – From one Mum to another. I am currently in the process of writing up the diary notes that I made over the Christmas period. For several reasons, this is taking longer than usual. Firstly, those lawyer, Mum, CF responsibilities have taken up a lot of time lately. Secondly, […]

12 December 2016 – “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas“.  It’s nearly Christmas.  It’s cold outside, H and I left the house with hats, very large coats and scarves. I manage to have both of us in the car with the engine running for 7.45am (all medication and inhalers etc. up to date). […]

Saturday 3 December 2016 – Tidy House Hubby is away on business. He’ll be away for four days.  That means four days of tidy house, with sides free from coins, keys, receipts, earphones and phones.  I won’t have to play hopscotch on the lounge floor to avoid the laptop, cables and iPad and I don’t […]

Monday, 28 November 2016 – Third and final day in Houston I enjoy a post-midnight feast of macarons in bed. I love this hotel. I’m far too excited to sleep straight away, which is not helped by the sugar content of the sweet treats, so I watch Christmas related TV until I doze off. 8.00am […]
