    on Jan 6, 2016 in Blogging me writing
    I love all the new year posts right now; everyone in blogland is thinking about what the new year brings. A few of my favourites from here from Sophie, Robin and Amanda. There is a freshness about this time of year that I am liking, even though...

    on Jan 3, 2016
    This year, of all years, I love a new year. Nothing like a fresh start and although I am determinedly and outrageously addicted to things staying the same (my husband says: 'you don't DO change') I am keen to get going on 2016. That last year was, we...

    on Dec 28, 2015 in home life me
    Wondering at the lunacy of having it delivered, wrapping it all up, watching it be unwrapped (fun!) and then throwing all the wrapping away. Carbon footprint anyone?Trying to keep the new white space tidy. Happy that the truth reminds: the larger the...

    on Dec 27, 2015 in beach Christmas holiday
    It's been a while since I have written here; so much has been going on and somehow, despite composing in my head what to write, I haven't managed to get to the computer. Happy Christmas! Ahh a little late; it's the 27th December already! We went away...

    on Dec 9, 2015 in children home me motherhood
    I keep sitting down to write a post - friends contact me and say 'no blog!' where has it gone? I gotta say: I am really struggling to find perspective right now. The world seems to have, just in the last month, shifted on its axis and I feel like it'...

    on Nov 24, 2015 in clothes shopping winter
    Woke this morning to the kind of dark, drizzly British day that so often characterises our winter. I do wonder what visitors to this country make of it? I see them sometimes getting off the plane, and I visualise them making their way to London or th...

    on Nov 20, 2015 in Blogging boots home writing
    Now I have been writing this blog for, like, ever...nearly six years, I do sometimes wonder whether I should change the name of it. I decided on its name in a millisecond and have always felt that it's kinda strange and that I should have something l...

    on Nov 16, 2015 in children home life
    I can't really compute what took place in Paris and never use this space to write about anything political, but it did strike me that in the face of such tragedy, it seems shameful to continue with life's minutiae. Like how we overslept this morning...

    on Nov 10, 2015 in family food home writing
    We moved home on Friday. This entailed me lifting four car loads of family life all on my own, resulting in a very bad back and neck this week. I think I overdid it. I ponder why simple things like moving house become a health issue after the ag...
  • Happy, sad, inspired, terrified...or the truth about post-graduate study.
    on Oct 31, 2015 in life me writing
    It's a Saturday and I am fresh off the back of what will come to punctuate my life for the next two years: College. Or University. Or what should I call it? Higher education? My Masters. That thing I am doing that causes people's eyebrows to shoot up...

    on Oct 22, 2015 in Blogging clothes
    Recent observation: I notice what people look like way too much. I actually don't mean their physical appearance, I mean what they wear. I remain obsessed with clothes and how they hang, what they are made of, where people get them, how they go toget...

    on Oct 17, 2015 in home life winter
    A week consisting of highs and lows. I have some weeks where I am in the company of others all the time and then times where I am alone for hours and hours a day. A few months back, being in my own company was penance and I sprang from thought to tho...

    on Oct 10, 2015 in ageing me motherhood writing
    This is how it goes with blogging; a post lives in my head in a sort of semi-baked internal dialogue about anything that may occur to me. It is then, sometimes time dependant, transcribed onto the page here. Sometimes not. Sometimes I read back on wh...

    on Oct 4, 2015 in children home me writing
    So enough of the wah-wah that we have no habitable home; the waiting continues.We have had a run of sunny weather which has contributed well to everyone's mood. I dispensed my daughter on her 'Duke of Edinburgh' expedition this weekend, where she tre...

    on Sep 24, 2015 in family home life
    OK, the yearning to go home is now so strong, I wake every morning counting down the days. Each and every delay in the house build (it rained this week; this caused issues for the roofers: dammit) makes me wince as I forward-calculate how many more d...

    on Sep 16, 2015 in home interior me writing
    I am well into September now, it feels like life has taken on a different pace and the days of summer are over. It rains a lot and we Brits complain about the weather; I find myself wondering (again) what it must be like to live in a warm climate whe...

    on Sep 1, 2015 in boots house parenting
    It's a strange time for me at the moment, right? I get it. But I am struggling not to react to it. It's so typical me, the ability to 'let it go' virtually non-existent! We return daily to our real house, the one that is un-built and un-pretty. Our b...

    on Aug 28, 2015 in family home parenthood
    When my husband and I were first together, I moved in to his one bedroomed flat. The whole place was so little that I could pace the entire length of it in a handful of steps. I loved it. It was my first chance to play house; fresh out of university,...

    on Aug 27, 2015 in family holiday home reading
    I see people around town; mothers from school whom I haven't set eyes on since we broke up and they say they've had 'the most amazing summer.' My mind whirls back, trying to place the most amazing summer I have had. I struggle. Summers have been pret...

    on Jul 31, 2015 in home life me
    The strange displacement of not living at home. I am finding it is one to get used to; perks and disadvantages. We are staying in the middle of a village, hemmed in by the water, where there are a number of the most beautiful houses. All week I have...
