One Year On – 26/3/2021

By | March 26, 2021

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 […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]
