Bye bye social media!

Bye bye social media! So we have found a wonderful property we would like to buy if things go according to plan with the finances? Apart from that there seems to be a little bit of a problem. What’s the problem you may say? Well the problem is that I am not very organised, nor […]

A dog is for life, not just for Christmas!


Merry Christmas everybody! I was going to write all about the thoughts, research, talks and visits to people with dogs and puppies.

What is family?

I’m sitting here at the dinner table at my sisters house, my niece & nephew are playing with my boys which gives me time to write this! It is strange, don’t you think? One would assume that you have more contact with your actual parents than with your step sister ( from my dads 1st […]

Esate Agents love ‘em or hate ‘em

Sitting here in a room at a travelodge in Long Sutton near King’s Lynn not being able to go back to sleep even though I am dog tired I thought I tell you about my perception of the level of service I have received from the estate agents we got our new house through. I […]

Holiday pt. 2


Hey there. So in part 1 i was talking about the journey and arrival to our holiday destination. This time I want to talk about food & shopping. As Florida heavily relies on tourism,to finance the whole of the state, it is not surprising that the service is unbelievably friendly, courteous, attentive and all round […]


Hey there everyone! we are on Holiday. In the weird & wonderful US of A. Davenport, Florida to be exact. We’re are here with my Sister in law Cathy and her Husband Paul. Let’s rewind to Wednesday for a bit. So on Wednesday I took the boys over to see their grandparents and I came […]

Theme parks, budget hotels, dentists and passports.

Gosober ’13


Ok October is almost finished and I am just now writing about it, but I am sure a lot of you know what it is like when you have kids that don’t exactly work to your schedule and once they are asleep in bed for the night you feel so knackered all you want is […]
