Now

I have a confession to make, I have another love in my life. I have been working on another venture and this weekend it took flight. I am now the founder of an arts space here in Stitchopolis. Can you believe it??  Check it out here.  Hope you like!

Kaleidoscope

Over the last year or so, things have changed a lot as you know. I’ve been made redundant, got a new completely different job, crashed the car,found my inner cyclist, been up and down the road of Parkinson’s and spent lots more time with my boys.Peaks and troughs indeed. One of the things I said…

What’s (in) your bag?

It’s Choose-day everyone ..and today I choose to get rid of chaos in my day. A big ask you might think but baby steps and all that…this morning was chaotic to say the least. I couldn’t find my headphones (big problem, my music laden walks are a treat in my day) and I’ve tidied my…

Out damn spot

Illness has descended – Little One is with the pox. I think. The doctor diagnosed CP yesterday but today anothr doctor (a friend) disagreed. Whatever, he’s hot and bothered and sad. Poor little chicken. I’m trying to combine nursing with work – LO has just gone for a nap so I have fired up the…

Death to the sock monster!!!

First item to tackle is the laundry. I hate laundry. I have to embrace the beast though before He chews me up. I’ve done some research (ok surfing) and everyone says have a system. So here’s mine: one load everyday. Fold and put away previous load while current is washing. Iron once a week during…
