Happy birthday, S!

Today is my beautiful S’s birthday – 48 today J and I are spoiling her completely. Breakfast in bed, presents, plenty of attention paid to her. She’s currently taking her time soaking in a hot bubble bath and J is making dinner. I got her a voucher for a wine and cheese tasting day. J …

My perfect Christmas

My perfect Christmas would be waking up not too early but not too late to a picture perfect snowy morning. Me, J & S would bundle up and take Odin for a brisk walk, maybe down as far as the beach. A snowball fight. Back home to a hot drink, cooked breakfast. The lights on …

Christmas gifts

I hate the ‘What do you want for Christmas?’ question. There’s not really a whole lot I actually want and I much prefer buying presents than receiving them. I’ve updated my amazon wish list and sent it to my brother and sisters but I… the whole idea of being brought something for the sake of …

How A Relationship works

Someone on a different social media site asked me the other day ‘how does your relationship work’ and I was completely stumped. How do you answer that question? My reply at the time was a smart-ass ‘same as any two-person monogamous relationship, just that there’s three of us’ But I’ve been thinking about that question …

The Good Life

It’s not something you often see people saying online but things are really good right. I’m really content, really happy and yeah, things are good. My health is about as stable as it gets – good combination of medication and therapy and my support group. S is home from her research position in Manchester. She’s …

Wedding Anniversaries and Superhero Marathons

Happy 12th wedding anniversary to my J&S. ♥ And they’re still so completely in love, you should see the way they look at each other! She came back from Manchester late last night to surprise J and she’s whisked him away to New York for the weekend to celebrate which gives me chance to prep …

Family

I ended up having a soak in the tub last night, before curling up in bed and watching a couple of episodes of Arrow. I took a sleeping pill so I was able to sleep kind of ok, although I feel fuzzy and weird this morning. I’ve done an online grocery shop which will be …

I want to curl up and cry. I want to scream and yell and throw things. I want to do everything and nothing and am mostly ending up sitting here, staring into space. J’s mum passed away yesterday. Peacefully, in her sleep, at the grand age of 95. J&S have gone to be with family. …

National Siblings Day

According to one of the trending topics on Twitter, today is National Siblings Day – which gives me something to talk about on here rather than S now being down with this stomach flu and J feeling better, or rambling about these maths lessons. I come from a decent-sized pretty close family. I have one …

Poor J!

J is sick. He’s got a bad stomach – diarrhea, vomiting, a fever – so bad that he’s actually taken today off work. This is completely uncharted territory. J is never sick. I can’t ever remember him taking time off work, except for when he tore his ACL and had to have recover. But this …
