  • Real Life: Latest Book-date and Kids

    By on September 12, 2014
    I am full of good intentions; then the time vacuum sucks up all the minutes, and it’s a vortex of ‘can’t do everything’, but I am slowly wading through treacle and making positive headway.

    By on June 4, 2014
    If your idea of a girl’s day out is a million miles away from a spa-based snooze-fest, you’ve probably already got a Ferrari driving experience on your to-do list (if not, why not?).

  • Real Life – If It’s Broke Fix It

    By on March 21, 2014
    On the 1st May 2014 I am withdrawing my book A Modern Military Mother – Tales from the Domestic Frontline. If you want a copy for posterity, then you need to seize the day and buy it now because once it’s gone, it’s gone forever.

  • Safe Sex in Cougar Town

    By on October 28, 2013
    I read an article recently about the increase in HIV in the 50 plus generation.
