I wasn’t going to vote. I didn’t actually want to. It feels entirely stupid and futile, with a government that understands nothing of the needs of ordinary people, but hell bound and determined to drag our country down. I worry for my kids future. I often don’t want to be here any more. I don’t […]READ MORE

I have to vote, but I don’t know who for…
This is a raw, thrown together whilst my kids eat their breakfast, and I drink my second coffee, it’s the usual crazy morning routine, kind of post. A jumble of my thoughts, trying to get them into some sort of order. I have to go and vote today. We have local elections. I can’t not […]READ MORE
Today is election day. Unless you are living under a rock, you can’t fail to know that we have a surprise and short notice general election happening here, in the UK.

Friday’s Rant from the Soap Box in MY living room…
I don’t talk a lot about politics here, unless it’s relevant to parenting or a rant, but today, I’m keeping my Friday Rant simple with some questions I’d like answers to. It’s political… So, we had an election last week. We all know that. In the aftermath, our Prime minister not only appointed the ghastly […]READ MORE
