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!

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...


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...
