The Eventless Event’s Tent

A few months ago Husband received a package through the post.  It was an ebay purchase which is nothing out of the ordinary because he is unnaturally obsessed with ebay and addicted to buying random shit that no one needs, sometimes it doesn’t even get opened.  This is because he enjoys the thrill of buyingContinue reading “The Eventless Event’s Tent”

The Devil’s Bum Hole

I’m a fairly easy going type in most areas of my life. Friendships, my job, my role as a wife, housework, raising my babies, rules, and this also extends to the type of TV program I choose to watch on an evening after a hectic day. I use the term ‘choose to watch’ loosely, meaningContinue reading “The Devil’s Bum Hole”

Summer Holidays. Days out or Days in?

And it’s here. The summer holidays.   6 weeks of uninterrupted fun, frolics, laughter, disagreements, arguments, fights, hair pulling, head holding, shouting and nervous breakdowns.

Birthday Week

This week it was my birthday. I love birthdays.  A celebration of another year here on earth,  and I feel lucky.  It’s a privilege to get older that not everyone gets to experience.  And then there’s the birthday cake.  Not that I need an excuse to eat cake, after all it’s always someone’s birthday somewhereContinue reading “Birthday Week”

How Weird is your Family?

Families can be strange.  What might be normal to one troop could be an off the scale cringe fest to others.   Some are open minded, some are not.   Some share, some do not. Some over share to a point were the words ‘What the actual Fuck?’ occasionally tumble from their mouths as they proceed toContinue reading “How Weird is your Family?”

Waiting in the Wings

We operate a minimal child supervision policy in our house.  Is this because I want to sneak off to watch Netflix and crime dramas unsuitable for small people during daylight hours?  Yes. But that’s not the only reason.   I believe that a problem solved alone or a solution found to something without the pressure ofContinue reading “Waiting in the Wings”
