Where’s The Real Love Island??

I have to admit to dipping my hypothetical toe into this years season of Love Island. Not something I usually watch but, even though we have at least 4765 million, channels there really isn’t anything on TV worth watching. But it’s left me a little bewildered and I am finding it very difficult to believe…

The New Mrs. Hinch (NOT!)

I for one actually hate letting the family back in the house after I’ve gone to great lengths to clean it from top to bottom! Like a mad woman I watch every move they make … I take note of anything they touch, glance towards or breathe near. I tut, huff and give deadly looks,…

Summer Time Men

After enjoying a few days of beautiful sunshine I think it’s fair to say we are all ready for summer. And it seems none are more ready than our darling husbands. Most of the year round they may be more like Olaf but once the sun’s out do they melt into something more fun and…

Bobby on the Beat

Coming across a recent story on @belfastlive, i was impressed to see just how seriously we women take crime in Northern Ireland. Never seen so many comments under a PSNI news story! But it seems every word Detective Superintendent Bobby says has us women hang on his every word… Not sure how much actually sinks…

A wife of the past

Writing this blog got me thinking about wives of years gone by, which in turn got me Googling and reading ‘The Good Wife Guide’ published in a 1955 edition of ‘Housekeeping Monthly’, which then naturally made me curious to see how this wife would be perceived by my husband in this modern world…Experiment begins.. 1955…

The Great Shoe Debate

My hubby and I decided to do a Spring Clean at the weekend… that was a complete disaster! It ended up becoming a very strong debate about “How many shoes is too many shoes?” Clearly my answer was none, he however, thought that 5 or under would be suffice – and I quote “comfortable walking…
