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 […]

H: “Mummy, it’s morning time… wake up…can I have hot milk please…can we go downstairs…can I have your iphone “ As I approach her bedroom, she sees my bandaged hand and she puts her little hand to her mouth and asks “Why isn’t your hand better Mummy?” I tell her that there is a tiny […]

Saturday, 25 February – Sprinkles We enjoy a very lazy morning in our pyjamas. H has insisted on having a boiled egg for breakfast but so far just looking at the yolk appears to have satisfied her hunger. Hubby has been AWOL for at least 20 minutes and I suspect he is on the play […]

1 February 2017 – “Ouch, cod, ouch cod…cod…cod…cod!!” Thank goodness it’s Grannie day. I woke up with joint pains today.

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 […]

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 […]
