Finding Joy In 2015

I really like new year resolutions but I haven’t actually made any this year – well not yet anyway. I started to panic around January 1st that I didn’t have the time to set aside to get things nailed down, then I remembered it wasn’t actually a fixed deadline! I’m usually really good at sitting down […] Read more…

Motherhood And The Myth Of Perfection

If I were ever to openly describe myself as a perfectionist I think most of my friends and family would fall about laughing. Not in a nasty way – it would actually be a fairly reasonable response. I don’t know how to iron properly and I have no inclination to improve – I like my […] Read more…

Here is my month in review: […] Read more…

A thank you to my family

I want to say thank you to my family. My husband and I went to see my son today at the cemetery. Louis would have been 12 last Thursday; his headstone has obviously been there a long time, and as usual, we knew it would need cleaning up, flowers replacing etc. We also had the […] Read more…

Life as a work in progress

    I’ve previously talked about wanting to move forward and often viewed myself as a work in progress. Today I want to get real about what that actual means. It’s so easy to talk about change; it can feel so refreshing and positive that we almost trick ourselves into believing the hard work is […] Read more…
