Intruder alert!

A great, big, fluffy intruder slunk his way onto our roof tonight. He was really friendly and very, very fluffy (much to Evie’s delight).
So I decided to open the window to pat him and forgot I had a cat too…
Big, fluffy intruder cat is now cowering in our next door neighbours garden and Arnie is back to snoozing on Evie’s bed.

A cup of tea.

I learnt of the suicide of a beautiful mum I knew, (as an online friend) today. She left three young children behind in the world.
Life was too much.
It’s hit me hard as I’ve felt those dark thoughts too, I know a lot of mums do.
I’ve been drinking a lot of tea today and wallowing in past memories.
How do you pull yourself back from such a dark tunnel?
Small, heavy steps at first, find something to hold on to, anything.
I started this blog to pull myself out of depression, something to do as they say, something to focus on.
It feels like a bloody big mountain to climb when you’re at the bottom.

Sleep tight beautiful sister. Rest in peace.

Let’s play frisbee!

….ah…perhaps not.


This is the month of spiders. There is a lot of them around this year, big ones too.
Very big ones…
I don’t mind them myself but my kids don’t seem too fond, (nor is Myles come to think of it).

A good day.

Call it a mother’s intuition but sometimes I can just tell they’ve had a great day in school…

Monday-itis has struck once again. One poorly boy with a roaring temperature and a gloriously sunny day outside.


Big stick, little stick.

I’ve been wondering why my bush has been slowly getting smaller…

Secret sword stash.

Gruff keeps his collection of swords under his bed. Evie has dinosaurs and dolls, Millie has enough books to raise her bed up higher than her ceiling.
Personally, I would like to stash jaffa cakes but my children’s keen nose would sniff them out.

Home time.

They’re home!
