Fortnite – The Game That Changed my Son

It was December 2017 when my son, Nathan, started playing Fortnite. I was fed up of the sitting room being hogged by video games on the Xbox that for his Christmas I redecorated his bedroom and moved the console into his room. I was recovering from being in hospital and having the sofa and TV

Feeling Duped – When professionalism goes wrong

Content Warning This post contains topics of an adult nature (and I wonder why most of my search terms are about male genitalia!) I would like to make it clear I am not a prude. If you have read my blog before, met me in person or know of any of my hilarious dating fails,

The reality of online dating

I have posted previously about some of the wonderful messages which I get from being single and having an active dating profile.  It is a daily occurrence that I get at least one random message which either makes no sense or is just down right perverted. I am not to be deterred though in my

I am a crazy cat lady – it’s official

Some of my friends were confused when I said I was bringing home my new baby.  An immaculate conception must have occurred as they reminded me that I have not been pregnant for over 10 years now and I also am missing the man in my life for such things.  Of course, there are other
