Todays To Do List

Todays To Do List

It is Friday and I am home alone, everyone is out (well apart from C who is munching fresh mango for breakfast in bed), oh and the dogs and the cat is about somewhere. I am sitting having a coffee and thinking what I have to do today. Washing – contrary to what others believe, there is no magic fairy who waves a magic wand and poof there is a nice pile of clean and ironed washing. I have just been through my wash basket and taken belts off my sons…

January Catchup

January Catchup

February is here, we survived January, can you believe it is February already, I swear I blinked and missed it all. January has been an okish month for us, my parents celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary, what an achievement.

Technology can be a good thing

Technology can be a good thing

I know some of us moan about technology and Big Brother watching you all the time. But after today, I am really thankful for it. My Daughter had an after school club today, so instead of her getting the bus home, we arranged she would text me and I would pick her up. I had a busy day today, where the day just went, I checked my phone to see what the time was and it was coming up to just before 4pm, so thought I would have a quick…

Silly Accidents

Silly Accidents

Has your child ever had a really silly accident, that has resulted in something more serious? In 2011, we were staying at a friends house , the next morning us adults were chatting, while the kids played.
