A Trip On The TR2

I left my Christmas party to embark upon an adventure.  Unsure of what to expect I followed the water along Plymouth Embankment down to Cattedown where I boarded the most unusual ship, TR2 – Theatre Royal Plymouth’s Production and Learning Centre. No ordinary ship but in fact, an award-winning building developed on reclaimed land, architecturally…

Christmas In A Motorhome

When we told the kids we were renting a motorhome for Christmas I think they were more excited about holidaying in a motorhome than Christmas itself.

There’s No Magic Wand For Success

The past few weeks have seen us working as a family to improve self-esteem.  A bright and bubbly family we are outwardly confident but internally struggle with low self-esteem.  This ultimately comes shows itself at home, in the privacy of our safe space, and tends to take the form of tears and meltdowns. I’ve long…

Calm in the Chaos

Life seems chaotic as ever.  When will it ever slow down?  I fear the answer to this is that it only slows down near the end.  I guess this is why they say life is a rollercoaster.  If it is I’m currently riding the loop the loop section. 

6 Weeks Summer Holiday(?)

I always look forward to the summer holidays with a mixture of excitement and trepidation.  Six weeks off school brings fun, tantrums and the complicated process of organising childcare.

Cabin life.

A little cabin on a plot in the tress, that disguise a view, to the sea I know to be there.  On a calm morning I wake before the birds start their morning chorus.  I venture outside, i can smell the ocean and hear the waves crashing on the rocks, far below the cliffs, that…

VOTE

Voice your opinion, make it count, all our numbers do amount to make a difference, even though, you don’t connect, or trust, your silence doesn’t say enough. Other people say, it is their choice to stay away, but if you appear unengaged, the parties turn their backs away, and focus on the demographic, that use…

Dartmouth Musical Festival

The best made plans are laid to rest, which is why unplanned ones are usually best An impromptu trip, pushed by a whim, and a wish, and a hope to see, some live music, which as a bonus is free We sit near the stage as the rain falls lightly, carefree, relaxed, which is so…

Slugs For Tea

Today we had a slug come for tea, Which isn’t as disgusting as you think it might be. He didn’t complain about the veg or the seasoning, Or who had which plate, cup or seat to sit in. He chewed every mouthful with great consideration, Savouring the flavour with much contemplation. He didn’t pull face or…

Finding Balance

Our lifestyle is comfortable, not fancy or plush and we are happy and contented with our lot but lately, it carries more stress than it used to. It’s not that I dislike work (it can feel like a break from the kids) it’s just that the balance doesn’t feel quite right.
