Brilliance in Blogging Awards (#BIBs)

AAAAH … LOOK AT MY LOVELY BOYS’ FACES … MAKE THEIR MUM HAPPY BY VOTING!  #passiveaggressivealert       For those of you that know me, you’ll know I find this type of blog post really awkward.  But I’m going to embrace the fear and write it anyway.   I’ve always hated asking for help.  […]

Restaurant Review: Villagio, Chatham

    (Please note:  This is NOT a paid review, just thought readers might find our experience helpful when deciding what restaurant to visit in Dockside, Chatham.

Online Dating – 5 Dates Man

  A little dating update.  So, as you know, my last date wasn’t really a success – one of those ‘pleasant’ dates that’s easily forgettable.  To be honest, I’ve been so busy with the house move that I haven’t really put any effort into dating.   So today, I thought I’d do something I very […]

The Brave Thing. Concluded.

    A few months ago, I wrote about The Brave Thing.  I’ll wait while you read it.   Anyway, it’s one of those things that’s incredibly hard to be open about, let alone live through.  I admire anyone that can be brutally honest about their feelings and personal life because I really struggle with […]

Being Made Redundant

  As the title of this blog post subtly suggests, I was made redundant last week.  Re-dun-dant.   ‘No longer needed or useful.’  ‘Superflous.’   It’s never a nice feeling.  It hurts … and it’s the third time I’ve been made redundant – certainly doesn’t get easier as you get older.   I spent 14 […]

    Let me tell you a little story. It’s a story that’s fundamentally about trusting your instincts, but I’ll get to that.   Last year, I went on a date with a man. I didn’t feel we were compatible, chose not to see him again and we went our separate ways. A year passed […]
