A Mom Blog Social Network
It's been a crazily long time since I blogged here... and I am feeling guilty. In fact, so guilty I am scared I'll be rejected...
Though please don't - I am nice really!
However, it has been a crazy time too. If I'm honest, probably the worst couple of years of my life. Not that you need to know about those.
And also the best too.
I have now published a novel, and I am really excited. You can follow links to find it if you so wish (it is warm and funny and…Continue

Apparently I am not funny enough.
Lovely Son thinks I focus too much on the serious side of life, contemplating my feelings, which are always miserable; he says this makes boring reading - no wonder I keep losing followers!

I love Christmas: I love the food, the time off, the movies, the board games. I love the sparkly lights and the cinnamon and apple in the air. I love the scent of pine needles and roaring fires.
And this year I am dating, so I should be loving the romance, the candle-light, and the promise of what is to come.
But I am not.
In fact, I am lonelier than ever - the emptiness has been knocking at the door louder than the carol singers. And I don’t think this…
