Confessions of a Single Mother: Two Years Later

It’s been so long I can barely remember what I even used to write about on here. A friend asked the other day how long it had been since I wrote a blog post, I meekly replied “two months..over two months..”..

Wisley Gardens, Surrey U.K 

As with most months this year; July has gone by in a flash. I leave for Kent in two days (I am doing a four week Acting course with The National Youth Theatre, a post or two on that to come…) and I still have 101 things to get done before I go. Sadly, yet again… Continue reading Wisley Gardens, Surrey U.K

I’ve noticed a bit of a theme developing recently with some of the comments Maia makes, in particular reference to my chest area. It’s only very occasionally, not everyday, and we’re still at the point where we all find it quite funny; so all I can do is share the amusement and hope as she… Continue reading “Mummy your Boobies look like my Barbie’s”….

London: Crowded Museums, Harrods Food Hall and Hyde Park

I never tire of trips to London; particularly when I get to play tourist. Last Saturday Isa and I went – despite the mild concerns of my parents-  to continue with our steady stream of Museums started in Oxford the day before. First stop: The V&A. We didn’t stay for long; there is a huge amount… Continue reading London: Crowded Museums, Harrods Food Hall and Hyde Park
