Additive Free.

Free From Additives. My Granny Mushroom lived to the splendid age of 92. Her secret to a long and happy life? Full fat, sugar loaded, lovingly prepared memories. Sugar Free. I have a mental treasure chest full of childhood memories; some not happy, but the majority dripping with sticky sweetness; a... Sign in to see full entry.

No biggie to add today- bad day! Started with 2 second freefall from top bunk of one of my daughters bunk beds;forgot I had got into bed with her last night after she had had a bad dream! My normal bed is a futon- so my usual flop out of bed turned into a skydiving incident! No broken bones, just... Sign in to see full entry.

Obsession. I remember the first time I saw you. I remember the first time you spoke to me. The place was not romantic, neither were the words, but every love affair has a beginning and every love affair has an end. From that first kiss I wanted to absorb you. You were, and had, everything I wanted.... Sign in to see full entry.

The Book

The Book You will Blossom. “Hey Darlin´- looking gooood. Can I get you a drink?” says the slimy voice behind me. As I swing round, I watch the colour drain from his face and he backs off quicker than you can say humongous belly. I suppose I was lucky; when I was pregnant I didn’t put on weight...

The Ad.

Words-706 The Ad. Why do I bother? I sit in my car waiting for my girls to come out of school. I sit in my car, surrounded by their rubbish. I am exhausted. I have squabbled with my ex, their father, yet again. I did not make it to the supermarket so they will grumble about whatever I manage to... Sign in to see full entry.

You and I

You and I I worshipped you. I was ecstatic when you asked me to marry you, and you, in return, forgot the next day that you had asked me. I moved in with you, thus alienating my parents, and you, in return, packed in your job and went traveling. I made your favorite homecoming meals, and you, in... Sign in to see full entry.

Milan-Sad but true.

Milan. November 2008 It had gone stale. The monotony of life had driven the passion and spontaneity from our relationship. We needed time to ourselves; without interruptions from our respective children or influence from friends. A break from the hum drum of village life, a break from controlling...

I.S.N- How many more of you suffer from this!?

I.S.N Not a problem. Yes, of course. Not a big deal. Anytime. Damn it, bugger it I’ve done it again. Why the flip can’t I say NO? So now I have to race like a Formula One driver to pick up someone elses kids before I collect my own. Parking will be a nightmare, it’s pouring with rain, I will have to...

The Birth

The Birth. From the fear a crippling hate was born. I want to shout: “Not me! Take her. It’s not my time. She’s prepared and I am not.” But my brain is frozen with fear, leaving me speechless. My pleading eyes flash from one face to another. Panic radiates from my abdomen to every extremity of my... Sign in to see full entry.
