Conversations with the little things

The silence brushed against her cheek as she walked through the empty house. A softness had settled in the air, gently caressing her face as she moved from room to room.

I have a little system I try to follow when I write my blog posts. Nothing ground breaking. I make an effort to post in my different categories so that the posts rotate and one category does not get more posts than another. Some of you may not even know that I have categories, but…

Why is it so hard to RSVP to a child’s party?

Ten invitations, 10 kids and no RSVP’s! With one week to go until my son’s party I started to panic – what if no-one really was coming? How would my nine-year-old cope? How would I cope? I went into mummy-stealth mode and my mission was to hunt down the RSVP’s one by one. For the parents…
