Luxury for my bum...

We’ve lived in our house for 17 years and I cannot tell you how many toilet seats we have got through in that time. I mean, it’s ridiculous that so many toilet seats should be needed! Anyway, th...

Bring it on

I’ve just applied to take part in a study to find out if the Covid vaccine and flu vaccine can be given together. Reasons? 1) it means I will get my second vaccine sooner. 2) it will help long t...


I have it. The perfect entrepreneurial idea! I love weekend lie-ins, lounging in bed with a book or my phone (or, like today, with both!). But, the problem is hunger. One can never be truly hap...

Just a quickie.

I’ve applied to do another of the government funded courses, this one is about children and young people’s mental health. Perhaps a bit grittier than the last…

I passed*!! Edit...

My course, that is. I got the results from the final assessment about half an hour ago. My three month course took four weeks 🤣🤣 subject to moderation. The moderator passed me too 😊

Yes, I’m in the bath...

I think that’s where I muse the best. Anywho. I have been musing on my blood doning: my 3rd since the start of Covid in England. But this time I felt something I hadn’t felt before and it was th...

Wiped out

Giving blood always leaves me feeling crap and today is no different. No matter how much I (over) hydrate myself before and after, it takes a couple of days to recover. R suggested that i shouldn...


WHERE: this is the low tech version of the reality check. Not that low tech, to be fair, but my phone battery is only just above 30% and, despite the new battery I got a few weeks ago, using wifi...

Take my breath away.

If you want some fun, have a read of this website. https://www.coastcaptureair.com/ This is a company who sell fresh air. Fresh air that they have captured in a glass bottle. For £75 you can bu...


Who does the majority of the cooking in your house? I do. Breakfast and lunch are, pretty much, free for all as I really can’t be arsed. I kind of stopped doing them last year just because everyo...

Fiddler on the roof

Why does it always have to be such a gamble when you want any work doing on the house? Not little stuff that I can do but the big stuff. For years we’ve talked about getting a real roof on the c...

Regrets, I’ve had a few...

But then again… No seriously. Have you ever regretted starting a job? When we bought this house it had been decorated to sell, decorated really well. In the 17 years we’ve been here we’ve never ...

Watching hair fails!

Lila really wants her fair to be cut so I’ve been watching YouTube tutorials in how to cut short hair and, of course, I’ve wandered into hair fails and it’s so funny 🤣 I know, how mean am I? The ...

The **ENEMY**

The body that is. The enemy? Yes, the enemy of sleeping in!! Saying that, I slept until 8:30 which is pretty late but I fancied going back to sleep for longer! Anyway. I woke and needed the loo. ...

Burping Burpees

It’s 9:34am and I’ve been up for 3 hours. I like to do my workout early because it involves burpees and I’m shit at burpees. If the girls saw me trying, they would utterly take the piss! So I get...

*pats head smugly*

I finished the first unit this morning and just received an email to say I passed. 😊

Stoooooodent!!!

I am officially a student again. I’d better get my round sunglasses, converses and black clothes again! When I had to fill in the “why do you want to do this” section of the entry I resisted writ...


My kindle has died. It has died before but usually comes back to life. This time there is no life returning; it is just dead. To be fair, it’a a keyboard kindle so not a babe in arms by any stre...


WHERE: In. The. Bath! One leg is propped on the edge with a generous coating of veet (or immac as we used to call it). I’m very hairy, my razor bit the dust some time ago and I haven’t replaced i...


Now that was a day!! I’m a gonna make a list! The thing is, I swear that they either set waaaaay too much to be completed each lesson or L is particularly slow. Their one hour lessons have NEVER ...

Hive mind help

It will be the husband’s birthday in a couple of weeks. Usually we would book into a hotel in Glastonbury and do various things there. Hiking up the Tor, eating in specific cafes/restaurants etc…...

Massive U Turn.

Having returned L to school and T to college in September for mental health reasons, I am now VERRRY happy that they have at least a couple of weeks of home learning ahead. R and I have chatted a...

Customer services rant.

You know the ol’ straw and the camel? Yes, so many things are stressing me but this one finished it off. On Dec 3rd I made an order for a fun Christmas tree decoration, you know, one that says 2...

2020; the year that wasn’t.

What did you do in 2020 that you’d never done before? Discovered that the suburb we live in has some great trails, off-road biking areas etc… we were aware of the green spaces but had never explo...

Childhood memories

R is in bed unwell. No, he doesn’t have Covid-19, he has went-to-more-than-one-pub-and-had-to-eat-far-more-substantial-meals-than-is-good-for-you-itis. L is in bed and T should be in the shower b...
