Father's Day morning

Father’s Day morning

Having 4 kids is brilliant on Father’s day. The bigger 3 started me off with breakfast in bed – a classic Dutch breakfast (ham n cheese and egg on toast), a cup of perfectly made Yorkshire Tea and a big glass of orange juice. I’ve also had 4 hand made chocolates and a handmade card given to me. The icing… Read more →

Blog from the hip

Timings of tonight have dictated that my blog of the day/ 365 is short. You be the judge of sweet. Its 23:20, my phone battery has died and I’m out.
