Why did I start this website? Well, I had some free time on my hands so I thought ‘Why not?’

Life as a parent can become so baffling! There are high’s and low’s on a daily basis but I wouldn’t change my life for anything! Apart from maybe a bit more money, to spend on the kids of course! Writing is a great escape. For the times when I’ve got things to say but no ears willing to listen… Happens a lot!

Laughter is the best medicine, we all know it but don’t do it enough… The purpose of life is to love, smile and laugh every day. Hopefully through my writing I can bring some joy into your lives. So…

“Welcome to my website. Sit back, relax, have a cup of coffee/tea and happy reading”


WHO AM I ?- I’m a mum to 3 lovely children who can drive me crazy at times and a pet dog who listens to me more than anyone else in the house. I’m very happily married and honestly couldn’t ask for more from life… I love to read, love to write, love to laugh and love to dream!

My Blogs – Self explanatory really! My blog pieces! Things that are annoying me, things I’m enjoying, things I notice, things… I just want to write about! 

My Poetry – This page is where you’ll view my serious side. I love writing poetry, hopefully you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them.

Mind of a Child – A page dedicated to all the ridiculously funny things our children say and do! Kids are great at making us laugh and their innocent minds can ask us some very amusing questions. (If you have any funny stories to share, please use the contact page to send me details and I will happily publish your story on your behalf).

Blogs 4 A Laugh – This is the place to visit if you just want a good old-fashioned, quick fix of laughter! I love jokes, a good joke can turn your day around or get your day off to a great start. I turn jokes into short stories and present you with the perfect opportunity to turn that frown upside down. (Again if you have a joke you want to share, please use the contact box to send it to me and I will happily publish it for you).

My Heart Quotes – I love Quotes! Sometimes they are exactly the inspiration / aspiration you need. On this page you can read my quotes and hopefully they will help you. 

Short Stories – I’ve always wanted to write a novel but I haven’t got the patience! So I’ve recently started writing short stories instead. I try to add in a twist so prepare to be kept intrigued.

Blended Story – More short stories on this page! But with a difference! These stories are something I do with my kids to help expand their imagination and writing skills. I will usually start the story then one of the kids will write the next paragraph and finally, I finish the story within another paragraph. They are really fun to do and I love asking the children for ideas on how to end the stories… See what you think!
