We Need To Talk …

I want to preface this blog post by saying to any family members reading this, don’t worry, I’m fine. Although it’s all relative isn’t it, but in the scheme of things, please don’t worry, I’m OK.   I mentioned last week I had some news about my ex that I’m...

Time To Learn a New Language?

Dexter has just finished his end-of-year exams and did quite well. In the subjects he likes that is. What was surprising, however, was that he did really well in German, because a) he really clashed with his German teacher last year, b) he’s not going to take it as a...

Camping Part 2 – Crowborough

As you’ll have seen from what I can only vaguely remember as a slightly tipsy Facebook Live on Saturday afternoon, I’ve survived my second camping trip – go me! As an aside, I do actually believe I should be rewarded with some type of medal, but I’ll let that go for...

The Story Behind My Sunshine Shoes

If you’re a regular reader, you will have seen me mention the Thinking Slimmer Slimpod download I’ve listened to throughout my …. yes, my journey. I’m not sponsored by them, I’ve never been asked to promote them, but I’m a huge fan so that’s why I mention them...

I heard this week that I’ve finally got a date for an operation on my eye. I saw the doctor about it in January, chased several times, and I’m surprised I even heard back to be honest, but God bless the NHS! It’s all set. Until they probably cancel it. But...

My Weekend of Camping – Hit or Miss?

The Things You Do For Love – Part 1 – Camping

So here’s a funny story. Remember me saying I’d finished things with my man-friend a few weeks ago and how heartbroken I was? Yeah, we’re back together. I know, I know … they’re exes for a reason, but please don’t judge. Like with most things, it’s actually really...

How to Talk to Your Teen #ad

As I mentioned in yesterday’s blog post, Dexter has just turned 13. An official teenager. But I would say that it’s felt like he’s been a teenager for a lot longer. (A lot, LOT longer.) I think these days, children mature a lot quicker, and I suppose, as a lone...
