You see a bad mother. Church, if you want to do it, can be a bit of a conundrum with small people. McMini being a bit older now and more susceptible to boredom, it is not so easy to persuade him to come to the Sunday service. Furthermore, when he does, it’s probably no longer appropriate for a young gentleman […]

Scroogeability factors. Better late than never today. The build up to Christmas is well and truly under way and I am gradually disappearing up my own bottom. As usual I am slightly dreading the holiday period but mainly because of all the travel, the being away from home and the general pain-in-the-arseness of that, the people I visit […]

Over the holidays I thought it would be fun to tell some of the funny stories about my family. There is ‘Catching Socks’, ‘Night of the Homeless Man’, ‘Tale of the Drowning Toddler’ and a famous one about my Mum for which I have no title, as yet. However, I thought I would leave that for later because obviously, it […]

Jeez, well, this week’s been interesting. Welcome to what the lovely Dame Edna Everage would call, ‘my gorgeous life’ in all it’s technicolour glory! (Phnark.) So, this week McMini had pukka actual gastroenteritis. He started feeling ill, was sick a lot, and then he was sick a bit more and then, just for a change he was sick […]

I want to be straight! (Yeh) I want to be straight! I’m sick and tired of taking drugs and staying up late.

This week I have mostly been cheating and taken my blog post from my monthly round robin email, but when you get to the bit about books you’ll understand why because it’s good. This week as McMini and I trundled home from school we noticed a large wooden box in someone’s front garden. It was big, big enough […]

It has occurred to me that it’s time to post something before you all think I’ve shuffled off this mortal coil or something. The truth is, life is just busy. Duncan’s funeral, a week blitzed afterwards, half term and my in laws down for the week next week, along with the deadline for the parish magazine […]

It seems I am #KBarthan. Even though I live here.

I thought I’d share my morning with you. No real reason. Just for a laugh. It was McMini’s first day back at school so we had to be up and out of the house at about the time we woke up yesterday. McMini, however, was ace. He got up and got dressed. “Car or bike?” I ask […]
