As many of you know I stammer, as does my partner and three of our kids. This is not headline news, but the fact that it still seems to be ok for people to laugh or imitate us is. Just this week I attended a medical appointment and as I stammered on my date of … Continue reading Expectations…
Going back now about 6 or maybe even 7 years I took a leap and attended my first British Stammering Association conference. Now you might think that this does not sound like a bundle of laughs. You may think that even it will be a sombre affair where lots of troubled souls gather together to … Continue reading Freedom!
Even though my bulbs have had more ice than sunshine this year so far to raise their heads, and that we seen more snow this year so far than normal I have found myself walking around the clothes stores taking in the holiday clothes and looking at the kids cute swimming shorts rather than the … Continue reading Pack Your Bags!!
Now this running lark is still happening. Yes, I am still at it. Mostly down to the great bunch of people at RunMiddlewich. It gets me a bit of time to myself, keeps me from hitting the size of a small elephant and keeps me up to date with all going on around town. Oh … Continue reading R.E.D. January….a great idea they said, and it is!

It started at the end of last week so over the weekend the worst of it presented. He was quite poorly on Monday this week so obviously it … Continue reading Are We There Yet?
I was never a 'Sports Mum', one of those ones that had to get up at 7am on a Saturday to stand by the football pitch or rugby field in minus five to watch my little cherub play for his school team or local town. My boy was an outdoors kid, loved our weekend camping … Continue reading Hitting Where It Hurts….
When I moved to Middlewich, a lovely town in Cheshire, last year, I found it was surrounded by canals and as it turns out great places to run. Now, I like the idea of running, it's just I am not too fussed on the reality of it. I find it boring as hell. If I … Continue reading Get Running!
There is one thing I can honestly say I am completely rubbish at. Dieting. Believe me, when people say it all changes when you get over 40 it is true. Every bit of it. I was always one of those annoying people who could eat and drink anything and stay thin. I have never been overweight, … Continue reading Sprouts v Potatoes
