My Arse …

In some cultures age is revered and appearances are meaningless. Why do we, in the “civilised world” get something so simple so wrong?

MAD DOGS & ENGLISHMEN

With the screws on lockdown being loosened what on gods green earth might happen next ?

The FUD

Ever wake up, look in the and wonder what happened? Ever wonder why? Welcome to my inner dialogue… come on in.

The Damp Squib

There is no sense in nonsense someone once said … are some folk just plain daft or is good old common sense just subjective?

Slow Down You Move Too Fast

.. 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…

Question? Anyone Know What Day it is?

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…

The Diary of Kim Hawley aged 48 and a bit…actually quite a lot

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”….

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…

The Diary of Kim Hawley aged 48 and a bit

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…

The Diary of Kim Hawley aged 48 and a bit

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…

Computer Says No

A journey of discovery …. and we had not even left the airport.

GO ME!!

Its Time For An Intervention

How Very Dare You

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…

Scrap Yard

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…

Anus Horribilus

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.

Lalalalalalala Land

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…

Silence Of The Lambs

“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…

They’re Not Just For Christmas

“You know that’s going to be there for ever?” Durrrh … really? Having said that, with modern technology leaving no trail unblazed, you no longer have to undertake a near skin transplant to have them removed. Tattoos are now quicker and easier to remove than ever before. In fact, many tattoo parlours also offer tattoo…

Set Lasers To Stun…ning

Review 2.3. Soooo, today I had booked into one of those fancy clinics for a cosmetic facial laser treatment. Not, I should add, the type practised by our National Treasure, Katie Price; rather the females in my family are cursed with a genetic predisposition to, as the years progress and the hormones start to evaporate…
