Another Christmas List

Another Christmas List

I was dreaming last night. Not about anything kinky, you dirty little bugger, I was dreaming about what I really wanted for Christmas. A WhatsApp group chat prompted these thoughts, after my friend said she’d asked for slippers and a dressing gown for Christmas. She’s a mother of 2. And probably really fucking tired. So I began to … Continue reading

Happy Zoo Year

Happy Zoo Year

The very lovely OH surprised Dexter and I on Boxing Day with some annual passes to Whipsnade Zoo.  What a love he is!

SAHM (for a week)

I’m free of any work (in which I get paid for) until Wednesday 2nd January. Yippee! I took great satisfaction in setting my out of office on Wednesday and leaving a smug message on my voicemail informing any unfortunate callers that I wasn’t interested in their call until next year. The best thing about Christmas … Continue reading
