Think a lot of you.

Forgive me if this post comes across as a bit self absorbed (don’t all my posts, they’re all about me and my musings) or egotistical, it’s not meant that way. This last week or so I had that lovely warm fuzzy feeling, you know when life and people just make you feel good. One of…

My own memories.

So yesterday it was a very good friend’s mother’s birthday. Her mum isn’t with us anymore either and for long enough I never fully understood it. I always tried to be there for her but never got it. Then years on, she’s turning up on my doorstep, flowers and a huge Tupperware of chilli in…

I’m bored.

Thank goodness we’ve (touches everything wood in the vicinity) not had to isolate at all during this pandemic (touches everything wood once again, just to make sure) because this week little P has been graced with chicken pox.

I love you mum!

When little P turned 1, we had a Hungry Caterpillar themed birthday and I made her a memories box, in fact a good friend bought her a lovely personalised wooden box for everything to go in. It’s lush. And I’ve filled it and hidden it away ready to wrap and give to her on her…

Who said that?

One of my most popular posts is about not letting anyone tell you that you can’t do something, but often I find that person is me. Don’t get me wrong there’s times in life when someone else makes you believe you cannot do or achieve something but that’s only really because you allow them to.…
