There were three in the bed, and the little one said…

…well, not literally in the same bed, but the same bedROOM. You see, Sausage still sleeps in the same room as Husband and I. Well, okay, sometimes she sleeps in our bed, too! I say ‘still’…as far as I’m concerned, she can sleep in our room until she can say “Mummy, I’m sick of listening to you and Daddy snoring”. But I’ve noticed lately a few ‘looks’ if it comes into conversation with other parents. …

Superstition Ain’t the Way!

I’ll set the scene for you: I’m on the phone, I’m looking for a pen. I walk into the room that my husband and I share (he uses his half as office space, I use my half as sewing space and general dumping ground for the things which have no home elsewhere). I stop. I look at his desk. My heart starts thumping. There is a PAIR OF SHOES on his DESK. ‘So, what?’ you …

Living with an Insomniac.

You know how most of us muddle through life, not giving a second thought to our daily to-ings and fro-ings, unaware that the things that have become normality to us are, in reality, quite¬† random and out of the ordinary? I had two wake up calls recently (if you’ll pardon the unintended pun) which made me realise that my life is out-of-the ordinary. The first was a conversation with my husband in which we calculated …

I think in this day and age it’s absolutely ASTOUNDING that people still take issue with others because of their sexuality. You can quote all the bible passages at me you like, but I will say this. For every quote ‘condemning’ homosexuality, there is another which says …

R.I.P. Sir Norman.

We awake this morning to the sad news that Sir Norman Wisdom has passed away. He lived to the grand old age of 95, despite suffering with heart problems and having had a series of strokes in the last 6 months. He will be fondly remembered by people all over the world (apparently he was a cult hero in Albania!) and was described by Charlie Chaplin as his “favourite clown”. However. There was a portion …

Aim for the…stores?

I wanted to share with you some song lyrics from a book that was given to my little girl. It’s a Barbie book, called “Barbie Dress Up Songs” and it’s one of those books with buttons at the side so that when you press the button with a corresponding picture to the page that you are on, a tune (albeit a hideous, 8-bit monstrosity of a tune) plays, and you can sing along. It goes …

What am I so afraid of?

So. This is my first post on my new blog, and as I sit here there is one prevailing emotion which bubbles up with every ‘clickety-click’ of my keyboard. Fear. I read some other blogs. Okay, I read a lot of blogs. Mainly those of the kick arse girls over at Aiming Low. I sit there and read these blogs and think “Wow, these girls think exactly like I do. I could write a blog …
