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…

The Reality Of Living With A Teen

The Reality Of Living With A Teen

Monday, my husband had a hospital appointment, he had an accident at work in May 2014 and has been in agony…
