baby feet

You know, all I wanted was to take a cute black and white photo of my baby’s feet. Easy, no? Hell. No. It was only because I noticed how big her tootsies had gotten lately.

Old Wives’ Tales and Why I Sometimes Feel Like Frank the Pug

~ Friday 4th November 2016 ~


Perks of being a mum to a young child are having a lot of down time around the house. Even though I am so busy all the time, I have never watched more telly.

~ Sunday 28th August 2016 ~


I have always had a dream of becoming a writer. I love stories. I can listen to them for hours. Diving into fantastic worlds of fictional or non fictional characters and let them come alive in front of my eyes.
