To be clear I’m not talking about A husband. No. Not any dusty old husband, but the man that is widely known in my stories as ‘Husband’. MY husband. I think it’s important to mention at this stage that the mould wasn’t just broken when he was made but well and truly annihilated. Husband isContinue reading “How I acquired Husband.”

The 10,000 Mile Stroll
Last Christmas 2 things happened that had never happened before. We went away on a little family holiday over the Christmas period. Husband arranged all of it. Sitting on the edge of the bed of the youngest Ankle biter I could feel myself bobbing. That lovely little slice of rapture just between being awake andContinue reading “The 10,000 Mile Stroll”
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. But to break it up a bit we will be including a handful of days out. Now I’m not really one for days out, and honestly neither are the kids. MaybeContinue reading “Summer Holidays. Days out or Days in?”

My Husband. The Raving Loony with the Beard and a Hammer
We don’t have any neighbours for maybe half a mile or so in each direction. Just open fields and more wildlife than you can shake a stick at. So imagine my surprise when I found someone lurking around having what he told me was a leisurely stroll in the field next to our house. Me:Continue reading “My Husband. The Raving Loony with the Beard and a Hammer”
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”
I’m not usually one to let things get the better of me or get on top of me as I’m fairly laid back as a rule, but this week all I can think about is the mound of spring cleaning and and carpet care I’ve got to do and the fact that now the kids haveContinue reading “Moth Hunt”
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?”
