Life Lately

I’m not sure how to start this post, other than to say ‘hello’. It’s been a while hasn’t it? Having had a two month break from blogging, I’ve realised just how much I miss writing. I know people jokingly call it ‘online therapy’ but you know what? I really have relied on this space over the last […] Read more…

Take 5: Tears, Tension and Taking a Back Seat

As my children get older, I am finding it increasingly difficult to get to my little corner of sanity, aka my blog. Not only does everyone want a piece of me, they also want a piece of my Mac! Every time I’ve had ten minutes to sit down and ‘pen’ something this week, someone has been doing homework or revision […] Read more…

Grandad playing the piano

You Will Be Missed.

My grandad was born in 1919, the eldest of three children. He had an extraordinary mind and a thirst for knowledge (genes that sadly passed the rest of us by), awarding him a place at a boys only grammar school, at the age of 11. My grandad fought in World War II and taught junior pilots to […] Read more…

Photo of the Week 11 / Friendship

I love friendship. Careful choice of words there. I could have said ‘I love my friends’ (which of course I do) but there’s something very special about friendship in general, which makes it worth pursuing, treasuring, and nurturing. At all costs.
