Listing out the 50 things that make me happy was much easier than I thought. Also great to look back on past memories and smile at some of my choices.
Holidays in Anglesey It is only the start of the year and – like the rest of the population – I am planning my holidays. Top of the holiday list is Anglesey. I live in North Wales so you would imagine I would choose to holiday somewhere else. However I am in love with […]
Party Time Top – This week we celebrated my sister’s 50th birthday. I was really nervous because she had said she didn’t want a party. In fact she was allergic to the idea. Her husband died 2 years ago and the plan was they would have a joint one. So I understand why she felt […]

Crunchie bar tiffin slices are so cheap to make as they require just a handful of ingredients. But don’t let that fool you, because […]
Ladies, you should have noticed a lot of coverage recently highlighting the need to book in for a cervical screening test (in old school money this was referred to as a smear test). This is because in January is Cervical Cancer Prevention Week. As it would happen, my appointment was this week. So I thought […]
The fun – and not so fun things – that happened during that week. An online diary to remember the thrills and spills of motherhood that pass in the blink of an eye.

Documenting how my life has changed since the arrival of my cheeky little monkey….and mostly for the better.
I read with interest today the following article www.netmums.com/home/g/top-uk-parenting-trends-to-watch-out-for-in-2015 And, indeed it was interesting. Some I was bemused at, others baffled, and some I kind of agreed with. So here goes with my honest account of the ones that stood out for me: Brelfies – No one and I mean no-one wants to take – […]
How our cat puts up with my little cheeky monkey is beyond me. But he keeps on coming back for more which can only mean one thing to Harry – playtime!
Our little cheeky monkey is a charmer. How he turns it on to woo the ladies wherever we are. Like father like son.
I love the zoo. Monkeys, primates, chimps, whatever it is you want to call them, I just love anything that can nonchalantly scratch its own bare bum whilst swinging through the trees. My favourite stop-off is the chimpanzee enclosure. Co-incidentally it is also my son’s favourite…..
