Toddlers are Monsters!

I am doing so badly an Nanowrimo so far, I really really want to get to 50,000 words this time, so far I have 7,000. Which is fab I know to be able to write that much; especially when I work full time and have a child. But still I really want to ‘win’ this…

The Appropriate Toddler Sleep Brigade.

Should I be worried about my daughter falling asleep in a Tesco shopping trolley? This has been the main question on my mind today as walked past the third tutting elderly lady. My daughter was leaning forward, drooling over the trolley handle (is that what the thing you hold on to when pushing your trolley…

Quirky places to visit in France.

France is one of my most favourite places on the planet! There is no place like it! There are so many different areas to explore, with so many regions that are so unalike you wouldn’t even know it was the same country. I know a lot of French people very rarely actually leave the country…

Oh hi there!

So, again for the millionth plan Iv’e made with this blog, slowly its turning into something I feel like I want it to be. I have (if you haven’t noticed) had a small hiatus again, mainly because my anxiety is awful at the moment and we went on holiday to Crete (which would have been…

Short Story: The Jewel Of Gyan.

On to my third short story, the genre was given to me by Christy who gave me detective/mystery as a genre prompt. Please check her blog out at Cookies and curse words (her recipes look fab). I wrongly though this was a comfort zone for me, maybe mystery is but detective certainly isn’t! I actually learnt…

Parenthood: Keeping your dog happy after having a baby.

One of the main topics I noticed while browsing parenting forums, whilst pregnant, and whilst having a new-born baby, was in regards to dogs. Before you have a baby, if you have a dog, you are used to giving them a lot of attention and often you don’t have to think about anything else. This…

Short Story: Erie

So this is my second short story! with my inspirations coming from Momma Bird who gave me the place of Sandusky, Ohio. I have never been, or in fact even been to america so I hope I haven’t butchered it too much! Please check out her blog over at Momma Bird Blog.  The smell of whale…
