Day 353 – You are so lucky

Day 353 - Mar 6th A quiet day, the kind of day where there isn't a great deal to report. These days happen when you are heavily into a routine. Routines can sometimes lack excitement, but they are also essential when you are bringing up children. In all the years of working in a school… Continue reading Day 353 – You are so lucky

Day 104 – Some people have “come to bed” eyes, I just have “go to bed” eyes

I'd been using an app on my phone to monitor my sleep, and it initially encouraged me to make more of… Continue reading Day 104 – Some people have “come to bed” eyes, I just have “go to bed” eyes

Day 60 - May 16th Another year has rolled around again, and with my birthday almost here, I sit here and wonder where a whole 12 months has gone, and wonder what I did with my time... and how the hell it made 12 months vanish in a flash!

Right, I am NOT going to let this be a late night! I am typing this as I wait for a loaf of bread to finish baking and it has about 25 minutes on the clock. Once the loaf is done, I want to take it out of the bread maker, cover it over with… Continue reading 324.365

“You tried your best and failed miserably. The lesson is: never try.” Don't worry, the tablets aren't some stark message that I'm going to end it all, the worst I could hope to get from taking too many of these is really, really healthy joints, as they are only glucosamine tablets. I take them to… Continue reading 161.365
