Jack be Nimble.

I forgot Wee Willy Winky. It was 7 am and we were leaving the house for school. It was still dark, it was freezing outside, I was holding 3 bags, a toasted cheese sandwich, a water bottle and my house keys. My tights were falling down, my not quite dry hair was clinging to my […]

This is Parenting.

I hesitated. 999. I need to dial 999. I was stood by the front door, away from them. My heart was hammering out of my chest, the ringing in my ears was becoming unbearable, my eyes were watering, as I seemed unable to even blink, and my brain had just stopped dead, unable to cope […]

I got the Eggcentricity.

‘Should I grab Spaghetti hoops or beans?’ A mundane question, on a mundane Monday, in mundane Morrison’s. I stand by the shelf, my hand hovering between bog standard beans and Bob the Builder tomato hoops, powerless against my dithering nature. I am exhausted and because of this, it feels like a much bigger decision than it […]

Dory.

The Irish one has decided to start growing potatoes, on our kitchen windowsill. I paused there so that the full horror of what I am telling you can sink in. The man has ultimately thought about it long and hard, and has evidently come to the conclusion that growing potatoes, in an already crammed two […]

A hitch in the Fairytale…

I don’t think I want to get married. The thing is, I have this sinking suspicion I may be gay. Or busy that day, or something. I mentioned this to the Irish one last week, and unsurprisingly, the conversation did not go well. ‘I am not sure I want to get married.’ I accidentally shouted, […]

“Drama Queen” (Me??!?)

‘You mean you aren’t just saying no?’ I pounce on him the minute I hear his keys jangling in the door. His high collared coat is up around his neck protectively, his headphones still plugged in to his very red tipped ears. He detangles himself from his very ‘manly’ man bag (adjective added under duress) […]

Poop Frogs. (And a Proposal.)

To be completely honest, I just wanted a one-night stand with the new Irish bloke that had recently started working in my office. I thought he was fit, and I am a sucker for an Irish accent. I didn’t even refer to him by his name for the first month, instead calling him ‘Dublin.’ I […]

A proposal, and a Bucket full of Hamsters. (Yeah.)

‘Who the hell do you think you are Lexy? What kind of person are you? Tell me!’ I catch my annoying therapist’s eye very deliberately for a very brief, uncomfortable moment in the silence immediately following this onslaught; but instead of answering him, I lean down very slowly and purposely, to unlace my big brown […]

Marbles. Scattered. Everywhere…

My therapist behaved like a goat today. I am not sure I can be much clearer than that to be honest. It isn’t a metaphor. I was sitting on his plushy three seater purple sofa, my legs curled up underneath me, my phone on silent beside me, the summer rain angrily pounding the window behind […]

Another baby!!! (Really??)

What is wrong with people? It is like a mental assault on a daily basis. When did mugging someone’s privacy become conventional in idle chitchat? It is happening at the moment, All. Of. The. Damn. Time! Example. Picture the scene. I’m stood in the lift, it is 7am and I am busy minding my own […]
