Being a 46-year-old woman is wonderful. You really are in your prime. Any fears that you may have had back in your younger days are conquered. There's no better age. This is what I chant to myself as I wash the dishes each night. Last week, aged 16 and 6 weeks, the...

Judging the Judgemental​.

Judging the judgmental is like watching a dog chase its tail around in circles endlessly. It is a pointless exercise. You will never bite off the tail. Dear judgmental person, I am trying really hard not to judge you for what you said about me. I know that judging you...

In Support of the Teenager​.

It has come to my attention that over the past few months of writing this blog, I may have come over as being a whinging old bag. A hormonal, moaning Brit expat. The mother of two teenagers. It dawned on me, when reading through a couple of my old posts, that the main...

It’s Not Fair.That’s​ Right Kid. It Ain’t​.

It's not fair. I won't tell you what my mother used to retort with when I used to bellow this at her from the upstairs landing. All I'll say was it involved a gentleman with no underpants who originated from Timbuktu. No PC parenting when I was a girl. It's not fair....

Why it’s cool to be in your 40s.

Another classic accusation from the teenage son yesterday. "You think you're so cool. But you're just not". AAAggrrrrrrrr. And... Breathe. E-V-E-R-S. ( Ok, so he might have a point). Here's the thing. I have never, in my life professed to being 'cool'. It's just not...
