Alfie went to my Mum’s for the day recently and Ste was playing on the PlayStation due to a rare afternoon of peace. The thing is I was really lonely and bored. I had no idea what to do with myself. It didn’t help that I wasn’t feeling well and I’ve been completely run down… Continue reading I’m just not sure anymore.
My summer holiday annual treat….. So for the last few years I have decided to gather some things up ready for summer.
