Perhaps it’s gods way of reducing anxiety separation… by the time they are off to university you are more than happy to drive them to the other end of the country and leave them there. Alone.

Its Time For An Intervention
We all wear masks …. literally
In some cultures age is revered and appearances are meaningless. Why do we, in the “civilised world” get something so simple so wrong?
With the screws on lockdown being loosened what on gods green earth might happen next ?
Ever wake up, look in the and wonder what happened? Ever wonder why? Welcome to my inner dialogue… come on in.
There is no sense in nonsense someone once said … are some folk just plain daft or is good old common sense just subjective?
Home schooling has been an eye opener so what exactly should our young be learning?
.. if you’re in your middle years you will now be humming the rest of this ditty – I say humming as no one really knows the other words apart from the “feeling groovy” part. Flashback to “music” lessons circa 1990 where you were forced to sing folk songs whilst the cringing from the pupils…… Continue reading Slow Down You Move Too Fast
What happens when you’re kilter is off line.
Answer…does it matter? Lockdown Day … a Wednesday in May Lost track around about April 37th. The only way I’m keeping any grip on any kind of real time is because we have to put out the bins on Tuesdays. Imagine that? Taking out refuse is the only thing of note that is going on…… Continue reading Question? Anyone Know What Day it is?
Anyone seen my to do list?
I’ve got it! (Not IT)
Question… what’s going on?

The Field Trip
Daylock Down 24 With the imminent re opening of Home School this morning, crawled leapt out of bed early for an hour of yoga with Little Miss Perfect. Showered, coffee’d, dressed (not, thankfully in that order) and ready for my pupil. Pupil has been out of bed by 7.30 each day of the “Easter Holiday”.…… Continue reading The Diary of Kim Hawley aged 48 and a bit…actually quite a lot

Lockdown Day 9? So, am attempting to find some pastimes. Ruled out baking immediately as can’t afford new wardrobe of larger clothes. Also singing/dancing has been put on the back burner as, well, to be honest, it’s probably just for the best. Tomorrow I shall paint (just the skirting boards – have not lost all…… Continue reading The Diary of Kim Hawley aged 48 and a bit…actually quite a lot.
Lockdown Day 14 April 5th 2020 …20 degrees (just saying) Have been remiss. For the record Rock and I have not uncoupled. He is just not a qualified home schooler as wot I is. We did a tally up and it appears that as I have more 9 more O levels than him; I am…… Continue reading The Diary of Kim Hawley aged 48 and a bit…actually quite a lot.

Anyone seen the dog?
Lockdown Day 5 I am in arrears. On 2 counts. This being yesterday’s post I feel I should offer an apology. Due to worldwide pesky pandemic, our family’s paid work* has been reduced to tiny puff of smoke – spent 4 earth hours trying to complete online application for government financial assistance (*I say “paid…… Continue reading The Diary of Kim Hawley aged 48 and a bit
Nuns on the Run
Day 3 – where the headteacher plays fast and loose with the curriculum
Day 2 Super relaxed start to the day…then had to get out of bed. Downhill from there. First day of home schooling. Start could have been better. Threats of mild violence improved situation immensely. Smallest child took part in home schooling programs with renewed gusto. Fortune shined on me as the sun has made a…… Continue reading The Diary of Kim Hawley aged 48 and a bit
Psst want to buy some toilet roll?
I’m not judgemental. I’m a woman.
OMG WUD IMO THIS IS GUCCI
The Rock (please refer to early posts if unfamiliar) The Rock is traumatised. Having popped to the doc for a little routine check up, the nurse nonchalantly informed him that he could probably do with losing a few pounds … 28 to be exact. Now I, personally speaking, would know if I’d put on that…… Continue reading How Very Dare You
With my ever increasing litany of injuries, my physio has ordered me to try less physically taxing sports for a while in the name of damage limitation. The only reason he escaped a verbal slap when referencing my 48 years of “wear and tear” was because he is older than I and it would be…… Continue reading Scrap Yard
So, it turns out that the things about chocolate being poisonous to dogs is not a scam put about by money grabbing vets. Who knew?? That’s, literally, all I have to say on the matter.
Our world leaders are, seemingly, all a little unhinged, the planet is about to implode and I genuinely know people who lose sleep as a result of the stress of Brexit. I, however, have no such fears or concerns. It’s not because I have a cast iron grip on world affairs and, having sorted the…… Continue reading Lalalalalalala Land
“Mummy, I don’t want to eat animals anymore” stated my youngest with that look of expectation that only small children can replicate and, as all good parents do, I promised that I would look into it, that we would talk about it with daddy and, merrily, off she skipped. Now, naturally, as all good parents…… Continue reading Silence Of The Lambs
