One year on…

Monday 24 February 2020. Day 408: Just over a year ago, I decided to stop whinging and start putting my moans and grips onto virtual paper so that my loved ones didn’t have to listen to my constant verbal diarrhoea. Did it work? Possibly not, due to the fact that I am and always will…

Sandwich anyone?

Friday 1 November 2019. Day 293: At the end of a week where I’ve worked (the salaried kind), supported my mum through a major operation, managed a family member’s mental health crisis, spent time with my children and grandchildren, cleaned the bathroom and had the offer of sex from two separate men, I’m left wondering,…

Dear Sleep, I miss you

Friday 8 February 2019. Day 28: I never needed much sleep; not as a baby, child or teenager. It would always take me an age to drift off, but once I was soundly in the land of nod, I usually stayed there until early morning, where I would wake feeling refreshed – definitely a lark.…

About

Not a literary genius, just a 50 year old single mum of two grown up children and one grandchild, writing my thoughts and feelings in between working and granny daycare whilst travelling through the next challenging part of my life.
