35 in Numbers


The number of attempts it took me to work out my age. It also took two hands: ‘ 84, 94, 2004, 2014…’


Years of marriage under my belt. Got married in ’09 so can calculate hands-free.

The only wedding photo of me on my own and I’m so sweaty!


Averagely lovely, maximum hilarious, high input children whom I love ten out of ten 90% of the time.

Searching for their mother’s patience


Lovely house that I live in and pay house insurance for and remember to water pot plants in.


Sensible coats- one for wet rain, one for potential rain but not too warm if it doesn’t, one for chilly spring, one for deep winter, one leather jacket. *takes a bow*

Dressing gowns. Neither ever washed. One I bought myself for a birthday treat to manage the in-between temperatures.

Loving parents and


Wonderful sister

And a whole world still to see.
