I've always been an all or nothing girl. A whole packet of biscuits, or none at all. Diet coke all night or getting wrecked. I can't do anything by half measures. Much to my chagrin. And this is the problem with me, I think. (Well I have a lot of problems, but here is not the place to discuss all of them, not the squeaky fingers against the duvet in bed problem, nor the button phobia which I share randomly with two other members of a small nursery-friends group!)

The advantage of being mum to a little boy is that you get a scrummy Valentine card each year from him!
I got a lovely card from Mr Humdrum and a fab pair of silver heart earrings (to match my charm bracelet and necklace that I've been treated to over the past year or so). Thank you Mr H. (I got him some pants!)
But they didn't come close (sorry Mr H) to Elf's Valentine card he made me at school last week, and came home today in his book bag. The translation:
Happy Valentine's Day
I love my Mace Windu lightsaber and I love my mum's clothes.
Love from Elf
I hopped over to barenakedmummy and found the Wordle. Wow! I'd seen them but not realised how easy they are to create. So I put my last post I've lost my mojo in and here's the result.
What I am shocked about is how big the word WORK is. It's telling me something...
Thanks BNM, it's a revelation in more ways than you can imagine!

I have just about kept up my other personal family blog because that's mainly photos about things Elf is up to, and I've had a deadline in the Chichester Family Grapevine (see side of blog as my iPad won't do links) which made me actually write something for Humdrum Mum.
I've also found myself unable to read others' blogs or comment, which is very unlike me.
Hoping that normal service will soon return, I will try to make sense of what is going on in my head and that maybe I will find my mojo in there somewhere. Maybe I do need to write about these things to get them "out there"...
Until then, happy first blogaversary to me! Ironic that the first anniversary is symbolised in paper!

Two friends have recently returned from spa breaks. I am jealous. I couldn’t justify spending money which should go instead on furnishing our new home, but I am tired, grouchy and could really do with a spa break.
But if I really thought about it, what I actually need now is a whole lot simpler than that. And cheaper. Here are my guidelines for an ideal mini-break.
