Revenge is Sweet!

My baby boys are 24 this month.  Wow time flies and all that, some of the years seems endless and harrowing.  In retrospect it was almost all good. Almost being the keyword!   They are going paintballing.  Sounds like fun! In the past I’ve given them doing things for birthdays.  18th was a Open Water […]

The End of the World

A couple of years ago my daughter was worried about 2012. Because that’s when the world is meant to end, right?  Books written about it, etc, etc.   It didn’t matter that I said there’d been people with placards waiting for the end of the world many times over. Of course, then I went the […]

Guilty Pleasures

Watching MASH with the kids (not that they are all kids anymore) with a glass of red.  And some dessert, or chips. Looking like cr@p in whatever comfy clothes I’ve got. Assorted cats and dogs fitted in like gravy in a casserole.   Having a laugh.  Feeling sad.  Liking and hating the same person in […]
