Gluing cheese: (metaphor) doing things which are ridiculous and/or seemingly impossible.







All change, please! TJ’s first day at school.

2020 has been a year of surprises. No one expected the basic shit storm which has happened as a result of the pandemic. But – controversially or otherwise – it feels like the fog is lifting and things are getting a little bit back to normal/new normal. The most...

Single and fabulous? What it means to be single.

Most 30-something girls, like me, were brought up on a TV diet of Sex and the City. Those four ladies taught us about love (OK, sex), men, relationships and what it means to be single in modern society. Or, did they? Lockdown has given some of us the (somewhat...

About Gluing Cheese.

The internet is full of those annoying parenting and relationship bloggers who claim to know everything about the stuff which modern life constantly throws at us.

You won’t find that here. 

I’m a 30-something single working mum and I will share my daily adventures to try and master the impossible to keep that all ticking over. You know, like gluing cheese when your kid’s Babybel breaks in two and they are tantruming over it. True story.

I hope you enjoy!
