Merry Christmas, 2019

I hope wherever you are, you're enjoying the festive season in whatever way brings you joy. Things have been very busy here, with the end of school term and the run-up to the big day - tomorrow, yikes! I've shopped, I've baked, I've wrapped and labelled, and I think I'm ready. Writing time has been… Continue reading Merry Christmas, 2019

In Flight

Rain poured down, splattering so hard against the windshield it was almost impossible for the wipers to do their job. I squinted, ducking down slightly in a futile effort to better see where we were going. It was half past eight in the morning, but the clouds were so heavy it might as well have… Continue reading In Flight

Father’s Day

“Do I smell bacon?” I looked up from the pan and directly into a pair of indigo eyes, blinking at me from inside my white kitchen tiles. “Yes,” I said, then lowered my spatula in warning. “But it’s not for you.” The rest of Dante’s face emerged from the tiling, his lips pulled into what… Continue reading Father’s Day

Birthday Round-Up

The last week or so has been crazy! With a capital cray. In case the title wasn't a dead giveaway, 22nd August was my birthday, and that's always a fun time of year for me. I don't know why birthdays appeal to me but they always have. It doesn't have to be mine, I love… Continue reading Birthday Round-Up

Grocery Shopping

GROCERY DAY Fluorescent lights blazed overhead and I squinted against the glow, keeping my head down to avoid accidental eye contact. I stomped up to the twining line of trolleys and fought silently for my prize; a wonky-wheeled monstrosity with someone else’s soggy receipts at the bottom. It’ll do. Two steps into the supermarket, a… Continue reading Grocery Shopping

Little Luna

In the quiet of early morning, the lighting soft and the world still sleeping, I stared down at a feathering of tiny baby lashes and felt my heart squeeze. I remember what it was like when my own children were this small; their tiny fingers, smooth skin and that intoxicating new baby smell. My brand… Continue reading Little Luna

Welcome To My Life

I woke with the sudden and uncomfortable understanding that I was not alone. Blinking into the darkness, I threw a cautious arm across the bed. Nothing. From outside the bedroom, the softest crinkle of the holland blinds, made by fingers pushing them furtively aside. I peeled back the quilt and rolled out of bed, shambling… Continue reading Welcome To My Life
