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!

WHERE: I’m in bed having a very rare lie in. On my lap is Oreo, the black cat. She gets up periodically to headbutt me, just to remind me that she’s there and hasn’t been fed yet but it’s Saturda...


My last entry was public and the title referred, if you remember, to my state of being dressed.... Well, very quickly, I received a note from someone who had read the title but not the entry. Th...


It was pointed out to me that I haven’t done a reality check in the bath recently. I had to admit that I’ve been catching up on Netflix in the bath recently, and a new series of Grace and Frankie...


I am done for two weeks and, as with last time I childminded, the toys were beginning to take over! I had a good tidy up this aft (it is now less than an hour since I finished work and I’m sittin...


I’m in the bedroom with the door closed and I’ve told everyone to stay out 😂 To be fair I have actually been finishing off the advent calendar but that was done before I scarffed the left over ch...


I’ve clicked on the new entry tab so someone is bound to need me!! I am that ‘satisfactory’ tired. I don’t even know if that makes sense! Our garden is not huge and, when T was little, I planted ...


WHERE: I am in the bath - well, I haven’t done this is like, forEVAH WEARING: 4 ocean bracelet, save the turtles bracelet, a wooden bread bracelet that T bought me for mothers day many years ago...


White or red wine? I’m not a wine lover unless my dad has bought it - he buys good wine and then I really don’t mind which as they’re all good. Who was the last person you hugged? I may or may no...


I’ve been calling the police far too often recently. And it’s only when I take a different route to usual. Well, it’s only been twice… A couple or three months ago I was stomping to the shop. Th...


Yep, there’s schtuff. I’m watching Sheryl Crow on the Glastonbury coverage. I absolutely love her!! It’s L’s birthday but R bought tickets to see the baseball in London for today so we got up ext...


Both girls have wanted their bedrooms to be decorated for a long time. L’s is still that same as it was when we decorated it in readiness for T’s birth (so 14 years ago) and T’s was decorated whe...


I’m writing my running memoirs - I’d love to create a book from them and have it published. On that basis I’ve written a survey for runners. Please, if you run (even sporadically) then fill it in...


I’ve often been open about my lack of animosity towards the Brucester but something happened to another website I use a couple of days ago, that really took the biscuit (dunked in tea or covered ...


What did you do in 2018 that you’d never done before? Gave up a job without another one to go to… Did you keep your New Year’s resolution, and will you make one for next year? I still don’t make ...


I can write about anything today. Of course, I can write about anything any day but I chose to follow prompts this year. Some people don’t like to read prompts and I get that but I have put a lot...


What do I consider “love” to be? Hubby and I met many years ago, for those who don’t know, we were the first Open Diary couple. We both joined on the same weekend in November 1998 and were chatt...


Do I live and let die or live for the fight when that’s all you’ve got. I assume the second one is a song lyric or movie title as the first one is both. A bit of research tells me it’s Bon Jovi ...


What pain have I inflicted on someone else? Yikes - I was often the dumper as opposed to the dumpee when I was younger so I imagine quite a bit there!! I really couldn’t stand it when boys got to...


Envy, gluttony, greed or avarice, sloth, pride, lust or wrath. I don’t believe in the seven deadly sins, created in order to chastise and create guilt. As a teen / early twenties, I was a huge T...


What is my favourite childhood memory? I actually did childhood memories for no jo mo a few years ago. I had a Wonderful, amazing childhood and it is full of remembery snapshots and memories. But...


It was pointed out to me yesterday that I had missed a prompt, which is quite lucky really because the prompt I missed was about luxury - what do I consider to be a luxury? If I had written this ...


What is your personality type? (ENTJ, INTJ, etc.). Do you believe it fits you? I did a quick online test that said ENFP. I’ve never really paid much attention to these things but here’s a little ...


What is the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make? I’m pretty spontaneous, I don’t spend a long time agonising over decisions. I go with what feels right in any given moment. Nothing lasts fore...


What notable events happened the year I was born. Since I don’t have a great deal of memory from that year, especially as I was born four weeks before the end of the year, I’ve spent the past hou...


So. What took me by surprise? Good question, good question. I’m going to go with an oldy but a goody. It was June 2002 and hubby (he wasn’t my hubby then, he was my boyfriend) and I were on Glas...
