The Smell of the Hotdogs 🌭

My husband’s fantastic writing… The Smell of the Hotdogs….a young lad’s first trip to the football game with his dad through his eyes. FRIDAY Hello my name is Ryan and I am 4 years old.  I have just finished school for the week and by the time I next go to school, I will be 5 years…

Going a bit stir crazy! 😮

Is it just me or is anyone else think they are losing the plot a little??! I can’t really get away with using the ‘mummy brain’ phrase anymore as my youngest is now 5!  I’ve been thinking like this for a little while now (stir crazy!), my mind is so worked up all the time…

Best Books, Toys & Games, which have ever graced my household! 📚🎲

I loved playing games when I was younger, still do now… but only if I’m winning!  When I was a child, I remember playing with my all-time favourite Christmas present, ‘Babytalk’.

In March 2008, my daughter decided she wanted to arrive 6 weeks early.  I had no indications at all leading up to her…

‘You’re either up or down never in the middle!’ 💭

When I was in late teens, my mam used to always say to me, ‘You’re either really high, or really low never happy in the middle’… never quite understood what she meant by this, but I used turn around and give her a look and say ‘Yes I am happy, what you talking about?’  Actually…

All I want is a piece of Chocolate Orange! 🍫

Yep, that’s me I eat crap when I feel like crap! For years now I’ve always been quite self-conscious of what I eat, as I know once I start eating rubbish food… it just spirals out of control, especially if I start the day off bad.  I think right that’s it, I’ve started bad, it’s…
