14th May: A cheeky biscuit thief

So it was my almost ex's almost birthday and I suggested we go out for lunch so that he could see the baby. Aren't I a good samaritan 👼 We went to Reds True Barbecue in Leeds and ordered a ridiculous quantity of food. I had mac and cheese balls to start (nice but I … Continue reading 14th May: A cheeky biscuit thief

7th May: A tiny traitor

So I technically can get things done when I'm looking after Emily. She is slowly gaining the ability to sit and amuse herself. But she does like a lot of attention and has a very strong interest in the cat food. I've worked out that if I put Emily at the far end of the … Continue reading 7th May: A tiny traitor

1st May: Caterpillars and Chickens

Inanimate objects are my enemy. Today I was slicing a plum and remembered buying the knife to take with us to the village hall we hired for the wedding. We had a big pile of limes and lemons to put in the G&Ts so we needed a knife to cut them with (photo below for … Continue reading 1st May: Caterpillars and Chickens

30th April: Hipster donuts and Highland cattle

How the flippity do is it May tomorrow?? (can you see that I am reducing my swearing to make up for the other day) Today we went to Leeds and I didn't get lost. You will know this if you follow me on any social media as I haven't stopped banging on about it. I … Continue reading 30th April: Hipster donuts and Highland cattle

26th April: Must apologise for all that flagrant language. Oopso

So I got rather sweary on my last post. Maybe a bit too many uses of the word fuck. Every now and then I get pretty angry at the situation. It's ironic how the post a couple of days before was showing off about Rita giving me a metaphorical gold star in counselling. Anyway I'm … Continue reading 26th April: Must apologise for all that flagrant language. Oopso

18th April: Feeling a bit shit but *Game of Thrones*

Not a catchy title but pretty much describes it. Grumble grumble life blah blah blah and then all my thoughts and feelings on Game of Thrones because I obviously have no sodding husband to watch / discuss with. Maybe even humour me and let me know if you agree so that I don't feel like the loneliest woman alive.

Thank God for good women

I don't know if you've ever had one of those moments where you feel like your whole world has just come crashing down? Where you kind of knew this moment was coming but the hideousness of the reality of the situation wipes you off your feet. It takes everything you've got away from you. Your … Continue reading Thank God for good women

5th April: Loving the little things (or trying to)

I am still feeling yesterday's bad mood. Frank spent all night on and off barking and whining because he wanted to be in the room with us so now I feel exhausted and sad at how unsettled he is. I'm also stuck in that 'I did not sign up to this' particular mood where I … Continue reading 5th April: Loving the little things (or trying to)

Men-children everywhere

*ranty, sweary, negative, stereotyping and hastily written post* Now just to start this by saying it isn't a thinly veiled way of slagging off my husband. We are getting on relatively well at the moment and having spoken to some other women I am feeling (comparitevly) lucky. He was never abusive and as far as … Continue reading Men-children everywhere
