Let It Rain!

weather quote

I’m really glad it rained today. No I am, really glad. That’s because I have reached an age where I’m grateful that the garden gets a good soak. The new shrubs I planted are nicely settled in with rain. I’m officially middle aged. Tilly and I got soaked coming out of the cinema, I smiled [...]

Easter Break


The past couple of weeks my life has been a Boden catalogue. Bar the odd work email, it has been entirely about the Family. Of course that comes with many non-Boden catalogue type of things, such as spousal arguments, losing it with kids who mess about at bedtime and the large quantities of red wine [...]

Being Kind

ania and the girls with their dollies

We had the girls’ parent/teacher chats recently. They were fine, the girls are both doing well and I’m not going to gloat or share the details here because I find that sort of thing mildly nauseating, I’ll just say I’m proud of them and leave it there. However one thing I will share is that [...]

Saucer Eyes

Mog and the BFG

Tilly is going through that wonderful phase that 4 year olds do, when everything is terribly important and things get said with complete earnestness that results in big wide saucer eyes. It’s utterly charming and him indoors and I have to stop ourselves smiling when she’s trying to make a very important point. Last night [...]

What I Know About Jumble Sales


It’s not a lot. So if you’re looking for a top 10 list of what to do and how to get a bargain probably not what you’re after. Although if you are genuinely looking for a ‘how to shop a jumble sale’ then you are beyond any reasonable help I could give. Having said that [...]

Not Perfect


There are some times when I wish this blog was anonymous. I’m not sure why it’s not to be honest, I guess when I started writing it I thought it wouldn’t need to be. I never thought anyone would actually read it and if they did I didn’t think they’d know me. It was never [...]

7 Things Dry January Taught Me

Dry january

Dry January is officially over. I confess that I haven’t been completely purist about it. There was the trip to Dubai with Jonathan mid-month, he may well have sent me home on the first flight if I had refused a glass of wine, and besides I didn’t do it punish myself. The reality is I [...]

Goodbye Mabel

Goodbye Mabel

I rescued Mabel from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home about 11 years ago, maybe a bit longer. Somewhere in the roof are the documents, long since put in a ‘safe place’. I went to choose her on my own, there were a few cats in the little cages, some kittens, some pairs but it was [...]

‘Tis the Season To Buy Stuff You Don’t Need AKA Christmas

christmas consumerism

It feels as if Christmas is about a day away. It’s not of course, but the amount of Christmas consumerism that hits me each and every time I leave my house lately is giving me serious anxiety. I’m panicking about the presents I have yet to buy. I will end up spending a small fortune [...]

6% of Mums Think They Make NO Mistakes Raising Their Children


Well good Lord I’d like to meet those 6%. That’s an astonishing amount of perfect parents, when you consider the amount of parents in the UK. – 9% owned up to nearly leaving the children behind in a restaurant or at home. – 5% paid for a holiday but forgot about the little ones when [...]
