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 the last few years into a space which I try to fill with positivity, humour, and heartfelt thoughts.

A little 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, since starting this 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

As well as my debut novel, Marriage Unarranged, which took nearly twenty years to complete! Another one you can get on Amazon, and it is in Kindle Unlimited too! getbook.at/MarriageUnarranged

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

Hope you enjoy my thoughts!
