Cucumber.

Cucumber.

My kids, the fussiest eaters that I’ve ever met, both surviving on jam sandwiches and cucumber. In fact, I think the biggest now HATES cucumber. Sigh.

Starting Again.

After the hardest few years of my life, I want to start putting pen to paper, well fingers to keyboard, and to start blogging again.

The Moonwalk 2013 is now less than a month away. Gulp. For those that don’t know the Moonwalk is a marathon in London organized by a charity called Walk the Walk. Walk the Walk came about 16 years ago when a group of 13 women completed the New York Marathon in just their bras to … Continue reading
