About Me

I work, I study, I play, I laugh, I sing out loud, I skip, I drink too much coffee, I love great food, I bake, I write, I try and be a good mum and wife, I sometimes do housework!!!

Imperfect Prose - Things My Son Has Taught Me

loving that I am back joining in here doing some writing again.


the magic
of a thousand firsts
the whispers
of baby breaths
on my cheek
when I held you
as you slept
the delights
of a child's
world view
the serenade
of simple
nursery rhymes
the happiness
of your
cheeky deep chuckles
the freedom
of skipping
through leaves
the warmth
of a
million cuddles
the simplicity
of loving
without demand
the possibility
of infinite patience
the best in me
the very worst in me
this love
will never
