When We Renew Our Vows 

By | July 13, 2018

Hubby and I have been married for 16 years now, together for 18, we married on the second anniversary of our first date, which – thinking about it now – is quite handy because we only have the one date to remember! We do joke that we’d “have got less time for crime/must be due […]

Making your home your own 

By | July 5, 2018

Finding your first home, away from your parents/carers, is always exciting, isn’t it. Whether it be a room in a shared house, a flat share or taking that first step on the property ladder, it’s an exciting time, a chance to exert your personality onto a blank canvas. When I first left the family home, […]

Enhancing body confidence with Knixteen 

By | June 22, 2018

Mother Nature can be a “bit” of a cow, can’t she? Those teenage and pre-teen years are fraught with hormone changes, the “shall I, shan’t I?” when it comes to letting that someone special know you like them, coupled with that “what if they don’t like me? What if I say the wrong thing or […]

By | April 24, 2018

Being a parent to two teenagers (a son of 15 and a daughter of 13, both with autism), I cannot help but worry about the world that they are growing up in, not just from an additional needs viewpoint but also with regard to the multiple stabbings in London so far this year. We live in […]

The wonky feet saga 

By | March 7, 2018

Its a strange feeling, knowing that this time in six weeks I’ll (hopefully) be at home, recovering from what should be my last operation on my feet, affectionately known as #scarfeet on the blog. Trying to imagine how things will look under the bandages and hoping that I’ll have “a matching pair” of feet, to […]

Beyond the sunset 

By | March 6, 2018

I was watching “Hold The Sunset” last night, followed by “Call The Midwife” (I know…party animal! Spoiler alert for the latter, you’ll need tissues) and the first programme in particular got me thinking, thinking about Senior Dating and whether I’d want to search for love/companionship if I became widowed or whether Hubbie would, if I was no […]

The positives of online dating 

By | March 4, 2018

When a relationship breaks down, for whatever reason, there’s usually a period of grief or disbelief as to the fact that you’re single or maybe anger that the time spent in that relationship has ended.  For women there is also the feeling that that internal biological clock might be ticking, men have it a lot […]

What would renewing our vows mean to me?

By | March 3, 2018

It seems quite a fashionable thing to do amongst celebs, doesn’t it? Come the warmer months, you can guarantee a smattering of high profile vows renewals, covering a few pages of the weekly magazines, airbrushing and all.   It’s something I’d like to do – apart from the magazine coverage bit, obviously, they wouldn’t be […]

If I were a driver 

By | February 28, 2018

This is a Sponsored Post. We are fortunate to live where we do. It’s five minutes walk to bus stops where I can either catch a bus to our local shops (albeit a half hour ride as it goes everywhere before getting there) or a bus to the large town near us, a small train […]
