Feminism, women’s rights, the gender pay gap. Incredibly important issues. As a female, as a parent and as a reasonable member of society, they matter to me. And yet on a particular day this week, six different incidents made me question my own feelings on these emotive topics. The women Picture the scene. You are happily making conversation with a female you don’t know particularly well. Passing the time of day, making small talk. Because you are both polite, reasonable people. Then, when you are mid-sentence, another female walks up and interrupts to talk to the person you are with.…

What a pleasantly uneventful week. Since the children went back to school, I have unintentionally taken my foot off the pedal with work. Or rather, I haven’t really put it back on again after the Christmas break. And do you know what? It’s brilliant. Winter cycling Saturday used to be when I’d catch up on work and everyone else went out for the day. But this weekend, there was nothing that couldn’t wait. So, we all headed to our favourite place, National Trust Croome. It was the first time Libby had seen the new tree house art installation, and both…

Isn’t it an an amazing feeling when you’re well again after being ill? I have to admit, it’s rather good to send the children to school again after almost a month off too. The new school Libby’s school has been using mobile classrooms since before she started there due to a problem with the building. For reasons I don’t quite understand, the building itself couldn’t be rescued. And instead of building another school on the same site, they built a brand new school in a different place. Monday was the first day in the new school, and it’s fabulous. It’s not…
