The first post

Well, I always said I didn't have time to be a mummy blogger. I don't really have the time to even be a mummy. But I've been realising I need to write. I've also been inspired by the plethora of good quality inappropriate blogs out there. I don't know how often I'll get to write and I don't even know what I will focus on. I live with a surfer, am a mummy of two and stepmum of a teenager who I love as my own. I work from home (at all hours!) so I can ferry the darlings here and there. But mostly I make the man drive them around.

Other things about me in no particular order:
  • I didn't think I would have kids but I ended up sneaking in there just before the biological time bomb went off. I am glad I did. I love the little peeps.
  • I have hypermobility and also Ehlers Danlos syndrome. I can do crazy things with my fingers but it's not all fun and games.
  • I am not very good with toddlers, better with older kids.
  • My kids have just ended the toddler phase (see above!) Aged 4 and 5. Most people think they are twins. They are called Barnstormer (a wise girl of 4) and Hammerhead (my big boy of 5). They have a big brother known as The Surfer (boy 15). He is famous to many people. He is my fake son and I love him like my own.
  • My man, who I shall call Handsome Man (HM for short), is 11 years older than me and I love him as much now as I did at the beginning. I cherish the fact that my kids have him for a father. We have known each other for more than 25 years.
  • I get on really well with The Surfer's mother. It's all good.
  • I do a load of washing every single day. Sometimes more. It's like how some people can't do anything until they have a coffee or a cigarette. I can't be calm until the washing is on.
  • I like things to be clean and tidy.
  • My house usually looks like we have just been burgled by people searching for something specific.
  • I have learned to live with mess. But I still hate it.
  • I am on Pristiq ... for now. I am usually happy but the black dog follows me around and really barks a lot. I struggle with it. It has been appearing since at least 1998 but I could even say it was around in 1983.
  • I have written over 100 educational books that are sold nationally and internationally. 
  • I was crap at breastfeeding.
  • My life has had a number of very distinct and different stages that ususally last around ten years. I am hoping my current stage lasts longer.
  • My best friends are the girls I've known since school. My best friend forever has known me since Year One.
  • Thanks for stopping by to my girl-cave on the web.
