THINK! DON’T DRIVE TIRED!
5th February 2017
http://metodosalargarpene.es/ebioer/4392 This was the sign (of the road sign variety rather than the miracle variety) that I saw when I was driving home a few nights ago. Delirium had obviously kicked in as I found myself laughing out loud on my own in the car (it’s the small things!). The authorities clearly don’t mean this to be aimed at parents of little humans, do they?!? If they do, perhaps they could throw in some additional free childcare for us tired…Continue reading
IS EASTER THE NEW CHRISTMAS?
17th April 2017

REFLECTIONS & RESOLUTIONS
11th May 2017
I know, I know, every blogger is writing about new years’ resolutions. Although I’m not, not really anyway. I’ve never been a fan of new years’ resolutions. I’m more a ‘mid-year resolution’ kind of girl. Or a ‘I-need-to-make-change-now’ resolution. The crux of it is, I don’t believe that because it’s new year, you’ll make a resolution stick. So, I make the resolutions as I go. For example, in May 2016 I made a resolution that I would no longer iron…Continue reading
