I have a serious side. Ish!

I don’t always write about the funny stuff. Occasionally I do also touch on things that are serious.

I’m not very good at being totally serious though, so you may find some humour in the majority of my posts.

The truth about boys.

Honestly, 100% truth? I didn’t want a boy. I mean obviously I just wanted a healthy baby but if I could choose, a boy wouldn’t have been on my wishlist. Sound awful? Well, I do agree, but in my experiences, boys were noisy, smelly, always dirty, wild, out of control…

A very sad story.

I want to start out by saying that I’m not a judgmental person. I consider myself to be very easy going and accepting of people but I recently discovered something that shocked me so much I feel I have to write about it. Before about two years ago, I knew…
