Reasons to be cheerful

It's time for my weekly summary of my reasons to be cheerful. 1. I finished a novel last night. This is huge for me as although I love reading, I find it so difficult to find time to do it. I may well write a review as it was not my

Problem with pornography – what do you think?

I have a problem with pornography. There! I said it! So I thought I would unpick it in writing as I am heartily sick of trying to work out the rights and wrongs of it. Pornography played absolutely no part in my home or school life. Let's get out there now

Are you in the mood for dancing? Perhaps you are inspired by Strictly Come Dancing? I had a look at the dictionary definition of dance. Apparently it means to move rhythmically to music, typically following a set sequence of steps. Of course some of us have more natural rhythm

Menopausal Monday

Menopausal Monday! What is that? I am aware that I am entering the menopause. I think the signs were there a couple of years ago when I first started to feel hot for no apparent reason and without warning. Now hot flushes come and go and the odd night sweat sets

Stylish wellies

Stylish wellies have always gone on my wish-list but I have never bought any as they often seem over-priced to be honest. I was delighted when JDWilliams offered to gift me a pair to review on my blog. When they arrived, I was thrilled to bits with them. Where would be the

Reasons to be cheerful

A funny old week consisting of worry, powerlessness, loss, hope and impure thoughts. As of yesterday, I have more free time as no longer doing social media for BritMums.  I have done it for 4 years and it rescued me giving me an interest after Dad died. So I have more time

Strong bin liners review

Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts movie

Snoopy and Charlie Brown brings back fond memories so I was delighted when I was given the opportunity to share the joys of these characters with my son Ramsey. The Peanuts gang make their feature film debut in Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie, and we were asked to give

Do you experience dry eyes?

Do you suffer from dry eyes? You might feel that your eye has grit or sand in it. Perhaps your eyes overwater so you have to wipe your eyes regularly. Are your eyes red and sore? It is not a huge issue for me but my husband feels
