Turning into my husband

Sometimes, my husband is just like a big kid. He is physically incapable of ignoring a football. If one comes near him, he can’t just knock it back, there have to be tricks involved. When there’s a football nearby, he forgets he’s a 41 year old father of three with his own company and a very demanding workload. Suddenly, he’s an 11 year old boy again. And it doesn’t just stop at footballs. He’s...

The Gallery: Door

This is a little memory I’ve wanted to share for a while, but it’s SUCH a little memory I thought you might all think I was bonkers for sharing it. But then what did that fabulous Tara Cain do?

And that’s the pink door of...

It can’t be anything to do with his pregnant Mummy forcing...

But that’s pretty much what we’ve become. And you can add foreign drink to the foreign food.I’d like to say it’s just the kids, but I have to admit it’s me as well. I love Indian food and Thai food....

Disneyland Paris

We’ve been to Disneyland Paris five times. My lucky eldest child went three times in very quick succession. We were enchanted by the magic (as Disney would no doubt say) when he was 15 months old, so we went back just before his 2nd birthday, when I was pregnant. A year later, just before his 3rd birthday, we went back with his baby brother, aged eight months. We love Disneyland Paris. I think only the most hardened cynic...
