What’s your story?

Last  night, hubby and I were watching the Graham Norton Show and we got talking about what our story would be if we were in the red chair. If you don’t watch Graham Norton, the idea is this. You sit on a red chair and tell a short story. If it’s engaging and entertaining, you are allowed to finish your story. If it’s utter drivel or you’re just plain dull, you get unceremoniously ejected.  So in the name of entertainment, I’ve decided to tell you my story. On a hot summer’s afternoon, I decided to take my dogs for a…

The highs and lows of working from home

This morning was Libby’s nursery morning. She just goes once a week because we are lucky enough to have one of the best nurseries in the country nearby so we decided to make the most of it. She goes horse riding, paints and does crafts and other exciting things and Lia gets a bit of attention from me.  I got some work done while Lia had a nap, then when she got up we made the most of the sunshine and headed to the Malvern  hills with Pluto for a walk.  Being on the hills in the sunshine made me…

Our Thursday Photo #36

Well, as usual it has been a busy week in the Plutonium Sox household.

Roll on tomorrow.  Yesterday, we had…

So of course, Christmas eating continued until the end of the holiday. And then it was the weekend, who wants to eat healthily at the weekend?  But, today is Monday. Christmas is finally over and it’s time to reacquaint myself with my waistline. Yes, I know. That’s two months worth of Christmas. If I didn’t stop now I’d have to keep it up for the whole…

Teaching social responsibility

As a writer, I have to confess a rather obsessive passion for reading. I am an advertiser’s dream when it comes to a blog post or news article that has been shared to my social channels, I can’t help but read it. So as a result, I read a lot. And just occasionally, I read something that really gets on my nerves.  It seems that this fabulous, supportive society that we live in just isn’t good enough for some people. You see, whatever cards life deals you, we in the UK are lucky enough to have the resources and support to…
