At ten o clock tonight, I am going to bed. Oh yes I am. I’m going to head upstairs, like I do every night, brush my teeth, remove my make-up properly, and under threat of expulsion from my book club, read a few chapters, before I drift off gently to sleep around 11. Oh but […]
Do you have any chocolate left? Do you? Are there still mince pies floating around egging you on to a final couple of weeks of indulgence before you kick-start the new regime? I must admit to having hung onto Christmas for as long as possible, even having a giggle at this photo from Dad’s Diary […]

I’m going to be predictable and start by telling you that I’ve just dropped my children off at school for their first day of the new school year. Although they are not new starters, they still have new beginnings – a new teacher, a new playground, a new school in GG’s case, and so […]
I don’t know about you, but the minute parenthood kicked in I became a different person. That girl who wandered home down dark backstreets at 4am, in whatever tiny skirt was in fashion at the time, ceased to exist overnight. The one who backpacked around the world, sleeping with cockroaches and camping by crocodile hangouts? […]

Over on the discussion forum this week I […]
