• Is it Bad Taste to Share the Christmas Haul?

    Merry Christmas! Hope you had an amazing day! We had a lovely day with both sets of parents and an uncle to join me, the husband and our two girls. The girls got everything they wanted and I always breathe a sigh of relief that we managed to pull it off following another year of […]

  • What Happened When I Ran Out of Antidepressants

    It’s confession time, I ran out of my anti-depressant medication this week. It may sound like I’m making excuses, but I didn’t have any money to get my prescription. I knew we would have some money in the bank on Tuesday so I assumed I would be ok to go without them for 2 days […]

  • What is the Point? Blog Post Problems

    I have read a lot about blogging over the past year (yes my blog in this incarnation is now a year old and I didn’t even celebrate, I’m such a rebel), I’ve probably read more about blogging than read actual blogs. That’s my nature,  though, I’m a researcher and when I’m interested in something I […]

  • 2016 is So Last Year, Darling!

    Well that was a year wasn’t it? The past few days I’ve had a little time to reflect on the past year. I can’t say I started 2016 with a great spirit of optimism, we’d had a nice Christmas but it had been a struggle to get there. We continued with a very tight budget […]

  • When Did You Last Really Look at Your Website?

    Our first house was in a relatively new housing estate in South Liverpool, there weren’t many amenities nearby, just a very small shop and a social club. We never went to the club but we sometimes popped to the shop when we were low on milk or bread. After a few months,  we noticed that the […]

  • My Blogging Breakdown

    I have not blogged for nearly a month. After almost a year of blogging, I have hit blogger’s fatigue and I had a little breakdown. This seems to be something that happens in many a blogger’s life so I now feel like I have almost completed my ’10 steps to becoming a real blogger.’ Undergo […]

  • President of the USA – No Experience Required

    I didn’t expect to be writing this blog post today. I had other plans and was going to blog later about something far more humdrum (you’ll have to wait for that one). I just feel the need to express my feelings about the long-running saga of the US presidential elections which finally reached an end […]

  • Does Christmas Start Too Early?

    It’s the beginning of November and I am already wondering if it is too early to start talking about Christmas. Clearly I decided it wasn’t as I have gone ahead and written this post! As a child of the 70s I was used to Christmas only starting at the beginning of December. I seem to […]

  • My Love Affair with Cold Feet

    I have to admit I was a bit cautious when ITV mentioned that Cold Feet was going to return. For those of you who haven’t seen it, it was a 90s drama which followed the lives of three 30 something couples at various stages of their lives. Me and the husband were attracted to it […]

  • From The Heart: Suicide Is Painless?

    A couple of weeks ago the main train line between Liverpool and Manchester was closed at the point where it passes through my home town. Someone mentioned it on a local Facebook selling page. It soon transpired that a man had jumped in front of the train and lost his life. Most of the comments […]
