  • A Parent surrounded by Singles

    I was lucky enough to find Boo when I was young, and since then we have been together for over 20 years, we’ve been even more fortunate to have 3 children and build a life together, but over the years some friends have come and gone, but a few of mine have stayed around, alongside some newer ones, however recently I’ve pondered to myself there all single or have no kids, etc and this can be a struggle.

  • My Secret Love of Chick flick Film

    We all enjoy all sorts of different movies, I myself have quite a varied taste in them. Like movies, music, games, TV programs, etc I do not have a defined favourite, though LOTR probably goes the closest on Movies, but in reality, I don’t have favourite or have an overall top 5 of anything. I have to break it down into categories and subjects.
