10 beautiful things that make me grateful.

This post is inspired by two other bloggers: Ladynicci and You Baby Me Mummy who both recently wrote lists on gratitude and beauty. I think I'm meant to showcase some new products but as I have not received any freebies I'm not feeling the love need. So instead my first impulse was to write about all my… Continue reading 10 beautiful things that make me grateful.


Moving a mountain one coffee spoon at a time.

Why You Should Never Live With A Husband From A Women’s Fiction Novel

Tara Sparling is my Tuesday tonic, when it comes to book blogging, she’s one of the best -so clever, so witty -so read it!

Tara Sparling writes

(This is another in the Why You Should Never Live With… series. Unreliable Narrator here. Chick-Lit Heroine here. Cop From A Crime Novel here. Young Adult Protagonist here. Literary Fiction Hero here. Romantic Hero here. Historical Fiction Hero here.)

It’s morning. You turn over in bed, sunshine streaming through your tasteful curtains and hitting the antique crocheted bedspread which was made by your grandmother, who was a bit of a wild child in her day, before you knew her as the loving old lady who taught you that hope was eternal, despite the fact that she had buried two husbands and single-handedly brought the family jam-making empire through some war or other.

Women’s Fiction Husband: Morning, love. How are you?

You: [yawning] Yeah, grand, thanks.
