The Parenting Rage

    I can’t remember the last time I got The Rage. I am probably the most laidback parent I know, preferring a quiet life over one of turbulence. If there’s one thing my last relationship taught me it’s that I won’t live the rest of my life in an atmosphere of tension and discord.   […]

My New Home – The Kitchen

    I took my best friend to have a look around my new house last Saturday because I’m just SO DAMNED EXCITED, I needed to show someone ASAP. This way, when I wang on about “You know that corner of the dining room that’s by the patio doors that go into the conservatory” … […]

Secondary School Decision

    After yesterday’s blog post, I thought it would be a good idea to do a follow-up post today.   We didn’t get our first choice of secondary school. Nor did we get our second choice. We got our third choice.   I am still struggling to process it. I know first hand how […]

They are literally all consuming.   I dream about what colour my front door will be. Seriously. Should I replace what’s already […]

Dating | When A Man Doesn’t Want Children

    I thought it was time for a dating update. Things have been quiet. Very quiet. I am out of the habit of dating, nor have I had the inclination to bother. I check my messages on the free dating site perhaps once a day, in the hope that my preconceptions about the site […]

ENA SALON | Review

    I rarely go to the hairdressers to have my hair cut, I would say a maximum of 2 cuts per year. I’ve been with my hairdresser for over five years and you know what it’s like, once you have found someone that does your hair the way you like it, you can never EVER leave […]
