Sarah is mum to three amazing, tiresome, funny, irritating, clever kids. She writes about family life and all it entails with her two teenage sons and tween daughter.

Post40Bloggers - mother and teenage daughter
I’ve been meaning to talk to my daughter about puberty for nearly 18 months now, but somehow it just didn’t happen. We were always busy and it was hard to find time, as well as space where we wouldn’t be interrupted by the boys. But she’s 11 now. I...

Loved the sound of this book! A secret slowly revealed. Growing sense of unease. I haven't read The Girl on the Train, but the sound of this book intrigued me. "Imagine if the next thriller you opened was all about you. This is exactly what happens to Catherine, a...
Child frustrated with writing
It was a post on Facebook that caught my eye. Fellow blogger and fellow mum-of-teen-son-facing-GCSEs-in-the-not-too-distant-future, Kate of Striking Mum, wrote that she was worried that her son wouldn’t get the GCSE results he was capable of due to his handwriting.

Red haired mum and naughty son
It’s… It’s time to get up now. It’s are you up yet? It’s will you get up NOW? It’s packed lunches. It’s dinner money. It’s I need bus money! It’s don’t forget to hand that letter in. It’s have you seen my tie? It’s I forgot to give you this letter. It’s signing cheques. It’s finding change. It’s can my friend...
Woman with positive and non positive masks
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post, all about how my freelance work is going. And the overwhelming response from everyone who read it was: ‘What a positive post!’. Hang on a minute! Positive? Me? I’m not positive. I’m kind of grumpy and my glass is always half...
Woman wondering
Today I turn 41. I have waved goodbye to being 40 and am now properly ‘in my 40s’. I loved being 40, I felt it was kind of a cool age. It is always said that life begins at 40. So did mine? In a word, yes. There have been some...
