The Mammogram #TheMMLinky 

By | November 27, 2017

A couple of weeks ago I had a mammogram.   It wasn’t the first time I’ve had one, my first was about four years ago, after I’d been to the doctor about my wellbeing and she booked me in for a full “MOT” (mammogram, smear, blood tests) to check me out as I had neglected […]

Day 26 – 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | July 30, 2017

Today’s prompt is “A Song That Makes You Want To Fall In Love”. Who else could I dedicate this to but my Hubbie and when I first caught sight of our children, with that “wow, did we make this baby?” moment. You Came by Kim Wilde, this has received some (obviously) smutty comments under the YouTube […]

By | June 6, 2017

Fidget Spinners, they’re the playground must-have at the moment aren’t they, if schools haven’t banned them, that is.   I’m very lucky today to be able to offer my readers the chance to receive a free fidget spinner.

By | January 3, 2016

Apologies in advance, I upgraded my phone’s settings yesterday and haven’t been able to upload pictures since then.  Am I regretting I updated? Yep. Anyway… the start of the Spring term for T tomorrow and it’s very much a state of dual emotions here. On the one hand, the back-to-school and the routine does benefit […]

Normality – Sat 2nd Jan 2016

By | January 2, 2016

“It all looks normal again now”, that’s what T said after the Christmas tree and accompanying bits had been put away, ready to reappear again next December. I must admit, I had noticed that his rocking whilst he concentrated on something had increased but had put it down to maybe being off from school (and […]

Peace for Paris 

By | November 14, 2015
