School's nearly out - Leave no mum behind!
One of my favourite programmes at the moment is Motherland. In case you haven’t seen it (and if you haven’t, you should) it gives an insight into the side of motherhood that you don’t read about in the Mother and Baby books.
For those of you who care, I’d say that I am about 65% Julia, 20% Amanda, 10% Anne with 5% of Kevin thrown in. (NB: I know that no one really likes Amanda but we all need an Amanda or two in our lives and I’m happy to make the case for her)
Father’s Day Gifts – 'Just get me some socks' AGAIN!!
It’s that time of year again when the brains get racking, digging deep for Father’s Day gift ideas.
I’ll get this out early on and say that I lost my dear dad almost 7 years ago so I know how painful this time of year can be for some.
When I look back, it makes me feel sad that I can’t really remember a significant Father’s Day with him. Ironically, the one I remember most is the first one after his death when my family all spent a weekend in Anglesey both to remember him and distract ourselves.
