About me

Location London, United Kingdom
Introduction I'm a middle aged first time Mum to an artistic, humorous and thoroughly delightful young man aged 19. I used to run my own business from home. My husband believed me to be under-occupied (which was a euphemism for "not earning enough"). Sadly, my husband died on New Year's Eve 2015. I am judgmental and opinionated but try hard to be tolerant too. My foot is invariably firmly positioned in my mouth. I try SO hard to stay out of trouble but don't often manage it! We have three dogs and if there were 25 hours in each day, I could under-occupy myself even more than I already do. Let the blogging commence!
