After all the hard work, all the anticipation and the preparation, its all over.
Christmas has been and gone and we’re left now with the consequences of too much food and drink, a pile of torn wrapping paper and more toys than we know what to do with.
Top Muddling moments were Mr [...]
I think I must be cursed when it comes to Christmas and work. So many Christmases I’ve had work blow up shortly before and this one isn’t any different. I had thought I was going to be able to take the girls to our office children’s Christmas party but instead I have meetings I [...]
The news is full of the current extreme weather (is it really that extreme? Surely there are places on the planet that regularly have equally bad weather and just get on with it without going into a tailspin?).

Bah humbug! You do know in two weeks the whole Christmas thing will be over? All this effort and its over so quickly.

So yet again he’s missed [...]

Come on over. Kick off your shoes. Collapse on a squishy sofa clutching a mug of coffee and a slice of cake. Everyone is free to join in – come and offload and winge and moan without worrying about anyone telling you to buck up. Get things off your chest before the weekend. [...]
The very observant of you may have noticed that my blog looks a little different – I’ve finally made the move over to wordpress only about 10 months after thinking it might be a good idea… Mostly its thanks to the lovely Liz from Violet Posy (www.violetposy.co.uk) who is the blog geek guru and [...]
