Who Cares?

There’s that old English pleasantry that we all do, you see someone and greet them with ‘Hiya, alright?’ Now, although it should be a question, we all just know that it’s not. It’s completely rhetorical and the person asking doesn’t really care. No matter how many children have come downstairs with a dirty school uniform... Continue Reading →


Hatches, Matches & Dispatches

  One of the downsides of having a plethora of chronic diseases is that death could be just around the corner, as it could for anyone, they may die in an accident or tragically something worse. The difference being though is every time I get a flare up or get another diagnosis I find myself... Continue Reading →

Her Story.

Her Story. I wrote a blog called My Lupus story, this is a true story of a very good friend that was originally written with mine but I felt her story needed a place of its own. My husband used to have a friend that lived in New York, they kept in regular contact through the internet. He came... Continue Reading →

Just a Short One.

This is just a short blog to air not only my appreciation but frustration with the recent issue I've been having. About a year ago I began having memory and cognitive issues.

Kids. From Vagina to Whiner.

No Longer Waiting for Ploddo.

In about 2005 I discovered, after years of avoiding any sort of academia since I left education, that I actually enjoy writing. This came about only because we had decided to home school our eldest child. As part of his learning challenged him to a story writing contest, we chose three random words and set...
