One Million Milestone

I stopped checking my stats religiously a while ago. Right at the beginning I’d check every day, more than three times a day. Now it’s more like once a day or even once every two days. I tend to follow an average line of views a day. Today I checked my stats and was utterly shocked to see it was …

On Wednesday my Grandad came over to Kent to spent the day with us. It was a lovely day and we visited the local nature trail too. When he arrived he gave me something, he said “here’s a little piece of Nan”. I knew what it was as he’d told me I’d be given it soon but I wasn’t quite …

I’ve been feeling very grateful lately. For having the husband I do. I take him for granted really, everything he’s done and keeps doing for us. P1 isn’t biologically his child, but right from the beginning he’s taken her under his wing and very quickly she called him “Dad” out of her own choice. Hubby didn’t have to do this, …

“I’m annoyed with both soaps for exactly the same reason!! The way they portray teenage/young mums”

I watch Hollyoaks and EastEnders religiously – thank goodness for Sky+!! I tend to get really emotional about certain storylines.
