Or rather are there times when you should be selfish?
I don’t know the answer and I just can’t seem to work out where things at home need tweaking to get them sorted – all I know is that things aren’t right at the moment
Mr M is having a bit of a break [...]
It was our 8th wedding anniversary this week – not a terribly important one in the greater scheme of things but another year ticked off. The fact we’ve been together 15 years seems slightly more momentous or at least something that should be Done Properly however it is one does that
In a burst [...]
This morning I realised that there are some conversations that Mr M and I have been having for far too long
Come this autumn we’ll have been together for 15 years – which when I think about it in stark terms makes me feel really very terribly old. Needless to say I was only [...]
