Bullies.

Something happened today which upset me a lot. I went into town to meet my little sister, she’d been working a lot and hadn’t had a chance to give Sausage her birthday present yet, so we met for coffee, a chat and a bit of toy and nail varnish shopping with the kiddo. It was lovely to see her, we often go weeks without seeing each other as her working days vary and I’m a …

Wedding Bells – Part One

“I haven’t married the woman I want to live with; she’s the woman I can’t live my life without” Husband and I have been together for six and a half years, and in that time we’ve only been to one wedding…until this week when we have two to attend in the space of five days!

Closer to Nature – A Photography Linky

After I put this up two Tuesdays ago, I had a really healthy response to the idea and had 14 or 15 people link up, which I was completely thrilled with, so as promised I thought I’d do it again. Welcome to Closer to Nature! As with last time, there are no real hard and fast rules other than your photo must be something nature┬árelated, but that leaves a heck of a lot of scope …

I Don’t Use The ‘C’ Word.

What would you think of me if you were reading a blog post and I used the word ‘nigger’? What would you think of me if you were reading a blog post and I used the word ‘queer’? What would you think of me if you were reading a blog post and I used the word ‘retard’? I’m guessing you’d be really shocked and appalled, right? Shocked that a (reasonably) well-educated woman would use such …
