Another Update – Our New Home! I’ve started to think about our new home, mainly to drag myself away from the omnishambles that seems to be the world at large at the moment (Trump, Brexit, impending World War… you know, the usual). I thought I’d spend X’s rare nap time writing about our own life… Read More Another Update – Our New Home
Dear X Today wasn’t a great day, was it? I wasn’t in good parenting form at all, was I? There was shouting (from me), hitting (from you) and lots of tears (from both of us). I know days like these will happen – today happened to be a perfect storm of being too hot, me… Read More Dear X – Tomorrow Will Be Better
I love buildings. Fancy modern structures with their dramatic lines and artistic angles. The magnificent ancient architecture of Cathedrals and Churches and Castles. And the glorious gothic designs of the towering Victorian red brick edifices. I love perfect buildings, immaculately looked after, pristine. But beyond that, I love buildings that have very much seen better… Read More Methodist Central Hall Birmingham
This week has been about depressing house viewings, a trip on the train and flipping Jamie Oliver.

I am not a small lady. Far from it these days, although I have never been one for “exercise”. I like chocolate cake and sitting tucked up under a duvet reading a book; I don’t like getting all sweaty and tired if I can avoid it at all possible.
Minutes away from us here are the man made reservoirs that constitute Witton Lakes. We often visit Brookvale Lake, but had yet to venture up towards the second reservoir that feeds into it. So yesterday we braved the freezing temperatures to visit the ducks and take out the big camera for the first time in… Read More Adventures | Witton Lakes
I started blogging back in June as a means of keeping my brain at least a little more active and less prone to turning to utter mush. One of my resolutions is to work a little harder here next year, but I don’t think I’ve done too awful a job at fudging my way through… Read More 2015 in review
The last time we took X to the Sea Life Centre in Brindley Place he was about 4 months old and slept through the whole thing. (We were offered free tickets by friends, before you suggest that taking a 4 month old to the Sea Life Centre was a silly idea…) This time round, we… Read More Adventures | National Sea Life Centre, Birmingham
