Maternal instincts

  In today’s modern society more and more women are choosing to not have children. Something which I believe is the own personal choice of the said individual and honestly I don’t really have much of an opinion on it, the choice I mean, not the subject itself. Otherwise I wouldn’t have written this post. Although these are more general wonderingments rather than actual opinion. I don’t think it’s weird to not have children and I would never question why a happy couple, married or not, didn’t have children. It is completely none of anyone’s business. I was pondering the … Continue reading Maternal instincts

My world…

  …or not.   I love my darling son more than anything in this Universe and I will protect, defend and help him for as long as I am able. He is more precious to me than any thing else. Which I’m sure is the case for most parents and their own children. There is one thing that Christopher is not, he is not ‘my world’, he never has been and he never will be. That might sound harsh to some people but my handsome,sweet, kind, loving young man is not the “everything” in my life. It makes me cringe … Continue reading My world…

What are you teaching your children?

    I’m sure you often wonder what things you are passing down to your children. It was probably something you thought about before they were even born. Will they be a good painter like your Mum? Will they have brown eyes like their Dad? Will they inherit your good looks ? 😉 You’ll have taught them please, thank you, how to dress themselves and wash their hands, how to cross the road safely, don’t talk to strangers. What else might you be passing down to them? How about your fears, phobias and anxieties? I started to think about this … Continue reading What are you teaching your children?

How to survive your child’s teenage years…

    A teenager’s mind is somewhere best left alone. It’s not working properly anyway and it’s all confused and back to front. Everything you have ever taught your child will be forgotten, I’m hoping they store this information ready to use again once they hit their 20’s… Things like Talking Eating with your mouth closed Using a knife and fork Tying your shoelaces Please and thank you Forming sentences.   Only time will tell. For now all the advice I can offer is this… Say goodbye to your cups, plates, glasses, cutlery, oven dishes, cheese grater. They will all … Continue reading How to survive your child’s teenage years…

What is love, really?

    “Love means never having to say you’re sorry”…  – Love Story, 1970 Well we all know that’s bullshit for a start. Can you imagine? “Honey, I slept with your sister, she’s pregnant, we all have herpes. I’m sor…” “Nope, shush, it’s okay because I love you, no need to apologise” Yeah, that’s not happening. So love is most definitely not a get out clause for anyone. Some might say it’s just a chemical reaction, an amalgamation of endorphins and other hormones, that is now preyed upon for commercial reasons and it also gives us something to worry about … Continue reading What is love, really?
