Frightened.

I don’t think I’ve been so politically scared since the 80’s along with its talk of The Button. Trump, (Brit slang. n. fart) who was amusing at first, is just becoming damned scary. Hell, I’d we...

A running entry!

The answer.

For all those who felt the answer was a trick let me assure you that it wasn’t. It was a question on a year 6 (age 10/11) maths paper and I gave it to the kids. Interestingly some of them either ...

Feeling disappointed. I went to give blood and went dizzy. It was only for a few seconds but they had to stop the donation 😞


WHERE: it’s Wednesday morning, my friend has dropped off her keys so I can let her dog out later, our new tv will be installed after lunch so I’m taking advantage of the time and having a hot bat...

Waiting to crash.

I had those type of weekend plans, you know the ones. You don’t? Well, make yourself comfortable and I’ll begin. Feeling a certain amount of boredom at the weekly trail around the supermarket wi...

Marriage survey

How long have you been married? This coming summer will be our thirteenth anniversary. Is this your first marriage? On paper, no. But emotionally, yes. Is it how you imagined it would be? We knew...

Formal work and farts

I’m not known for formal work, you know the kind where you turn up looking smart, work set hours and do what is required by the boss. My history of work, apart from 11 years as a nanny and 7 as a...

Bandwagon survey.

1. Was 2015 a good year for you? Why? I’ve seen a lot of people ready to leave 2015 because it has been awful but I can’t see how a year could be all awful or all good. Shit stuff happens, good ...

Gingerbread house

Today’s advent calendar task was to decorate a gingerbread house. We didn’t bake it this time though, we bought the gingerbread ready made. Oh look, a kitten! Oh, and sparkly toes!

Bike mad

When I started writing here I was a bit of a bicycle nut - I cycled to work through London taking in the Thames path, Richmond Park, Putney Heath and (in winter) the south circular! I lived tinke...

Chain of events...

Not unlike the Sainsbury Christmas ad… I just had a chain of events. I was watching Russell Howard’s Good News and thinking that I should go for a wee after eating my satsuma. A very funny momen...
