Life goes on.

17th Jul, 2017

Monday 17th July 2017 – It’s been a funny old weekend. I had a beer with friends on Friday evening.

I’ve ridden my bike, tidied my garden and generally been active and

25th May 2017 – London is bathed in sunshine again today and I’m up at the crack of dawn, unable to sleep as soon as the sun hits the windows and the bedroom warms up. I spend the first 2 hours of the day putting on washing, watering the garden and doing the daily chores.

Focus in the opposite direction?

24th Mar, 2017

Friday 24th March 2017 – My thoughts for today switch to Mothering Sunday and I wonder if I should send myself half a bunch of flowers given that I am now Mummy and Daddy for 50% of the time??!! Good old gallows humor!!!! But in all seriousness it is another chance for me to be the

Friday 17th March 2017 – I’ve written, many, many, times about dropping my little boy at school on a Friday and then knowing that I won’t have him for the weekend. It is still such a traumatic experience and I do wonder when it will get easier? When I set off on this RebuildMe journey I had no
