About me…

I am a working mum of 2, loving wife, daughter, sister, friend to many… I started this blog to just air views, and reminisce… feel the flava of the old school, if you know what I mean!

It has evolved, over two years into a space which I try to fill with positivity, humour, and heartfelt thoughts.

A lil bit of creativity, stories about my family, recipes, Spidey, and my cat, Sonu Singh, all feature regularly! Throw in some weekly challenges which I take part in, and there you have it!

I have also, recently, since writing my blog, compiled and published my first book, an anthology of verse, Poetic RITUals, which is available to purchase on Amazon by clicking this link: myBook.to/PoeticRITUals


So if you fancy reading the sometimes crazy, off the wall thoughts of a loony working mum, WELCOME!

Hope you enjoy my thoughts!
