I prefer the term childlike to childish, it had a more mature ring to it. To me I'm me. Determined, understanding with a little bit of a temper. I'm married and have children. I also have a brother and two sisters, I work in a school with various kids who need a little extra help, one way or another. And to all those people I imagine that I'm someone slightly different, depending on their needs. Once you read me I will become, to you, who you need me to be.

Let's Go Diem the Carpe!

L is finally on a football team. It’s been an effing long road. She spent a year training with a boys team, constantly being promised that she would make the team soon but that never happened. Sh...


I just saw someone’s insta story about their morning which involved Buddha bowls, yoga and meditation.... I thought about what mine would say… . Had a big shit . Nagged the kids to get up . Clean...


I had another Ridgeway run today, I trotted ten miles and got a little lost. Well, not so much lost, I knew where I was, I just wasn’t where I wanted to be!! Anyway, I really enjoyed it, I had a...


I did a short section this morning and, even with fewer than four miles I became quite dehydrated!! I devoured my bottle of water when I got back to the car. There were so few people aroun...


WHERE: lying in bed, one leg hanging out of the duvet. The curtains are closed but the window is open and I can hear the gentle rain and a groaning motorbike. Rich is sleeping next to me and Oreo...


I just wrote this as a comment on Facebook and followed up by making it my status. If you feel the same as me, please feel free to use it. Xx Okay, looking at this from an impartial stance. Let’...


I think the moment that you realise the farmers veg box you signed up for, when shopping was nigh on impossible, is surplus to requirements is when you discover three cauliflowers and two broccol...


(Aside: bicho is Spanish for bug). It really doesn’t matter how much you resist the scratching, the rubbing against the rough sofa fabric, scratching around the perimeter nor how many antihistami...


Or… 🍅 🍜 and 🍸.... I had the house to myself for a little over an hour last night!! T asked if we could go for a walk but I had just sat down with Netflix and the shoulder massage machine so I tol...


So, I’ve been pretty much at home since March, a week earlier than most folk just because I had a week off the week before lockdown. And what new, exciting hobbies have I taken up? How many degre...


You know the saying that you should never meet your heroes; the reality will never live up to the image you have created. Right? Well, I think the same goes for autobiographies. I can only think ...


The problem is, on non running days I have the choice of getting up to shower before going downstairs… Or.... Just going down and getting breakfast. Breakfast is the most bestest meal of the da...


To write! Just writing cause I can!! Yesterday was an utter write off. Lila took four hours to do a one hour homework and then got 40% in the online test. Most of that time was spent rolling on t...


I’ve seen another survey that excites me far more than this one but, I agree with charis (from whom I stole the questions), it will be an interesting one to look back on. THE BIG PICTURE What cou...


As the school holidays, such as they’ve blended with term time, are at an end and so the final challenge has been done. The theme was Ridiculous Sports. Our localish ridiculous sport is Cheese Ro...


I am now the proud owner of a treadmill. It was a smooth pickup, albeit as far from us in this town as it’s possible to get without leaving! I knew it would be a close call to fit it in the car...


I’ve realised that I need to get moving in the morning to get the funk to fuck off so I got up at 7 and did the Cindy Crawford workout. I’m still trying to figure out how to get a treadmill tha...


I woke up in an utter funk today, no desire to do anything. I planned to get breakfast, go back to bed and stay there. I was going to write here, say how thoroughly fucked off i was but I decide...


No, not me. That’s just a fantasy for me 😂 My sister is home alone and has been for over two weeks. Her partner lives in south London while she lives in the suburbs to the west of London and the...


In an attempt to get food without leaving the house I was able to sign up for a local veg box, the kind that send a box full of fruit and veg each week but you can’t request anything specific. Th...


I just feel like L is being overloaded. No matter how much we do each day, more is set, more than she has done. I’m not working her stupidly hard. Each day is maths and English, some form of exer...


I think I’m falling apart… I’m less than a year away from 50 and my body is letting me know. I have tooth ache (top right hand side wisdom tooth) It is from years of clenching my jaw through s...


Well, except R, though he will be working from home by tomorrow or Thursday. It’s been a lovely day; warm sun and the window open, the sounds of spring. I still have a sweater and a bobble hat o...


What is your favourite accent? I really don’t know. I definitely don’t like the one where we live, and L uses it with her friends!! I like when Spanish speakers speak English, it has a lovely lil...
