I watched it at the in-laws today. If anything Iím just really pleased that this will encourage more women into sport, and I think that can only be a good thing

Happy anniversary! 🎉

Oh how I've loved the patronising filth aimed at women's football during this tournament. Not. No shortage of skill & physicality on show. Congratz England. Tough game. No sign of teenagers coked off their heads in crowd too.

Ö isnít that devastatingly sad though?
The fact that people still feel theyíd rather ridicule a group of people than celebrate their achievements?

And that right there is sadly whatís wrong with the world.

Youíre right though ó the crowd was 90% less lager lout than menís football. I genuinely enjoyed watching it.

Hello. Iím a first time mom with a five month old. I worked full time until 38 weeks. While on maternity leave, I decided to quite my job and stay home with my baby.

My daughter is exclusively breastfed and at times it can feel lonely. She needs me to eat so I take her everywhere I go. I donít have many people I can call friends, and even less now that I have a baby. It makes me feel guilty and selfish to want to be able to do some things alone. Or even have a drink.

I'm a stay at home mum to a 2 year old. I feel you. You're not selfish for wanting some time to yourself. It's a normal human desire.

Very normal wishes.
And you better make sure youíll fulfill those to a certain extent.
Listen to the stewardesses: if oxygen masks drop from the ceiling, be sure to put on your own mask first.

You can't possibly take good care of your baby if you donít take good care of yourself!
Stay safe and stay sane and enjoy the time with your child.
Kind regards, Gus (the dad who breastfed 3 children - would I lie to you?)

It's my 1st DUP-versary! Smack in the middle of my 23rd wedding anniversary (yesterday) and 27 years together anniversary (tomorrow). I had a migraine today, and spent all afternoon  sleeping it off.

My 14 year old daughter caught the train to the nearest city with her friends for the day. She just needed lifts to and from the station. My 16 year old is being pleasant and cooperative (makes a pleasant change tbh) and is currently cooking dinner!

Thank you all for the kind comments!

I live in a small town. Pretty much only tourists take the train.

I am doing good here. Trying to get my writing mojo back which is being helped along by getting my relationship mojo back at the same time. Who said correlation is not causation? Going through a bit of a financial slump but trying to remain positive as always. I love writing for others, so if anyone wants to throw me a writing prompt of their choice, I will gladly spit out a poem in return.

Also trying to catch up on some reading and TV show watching among a million other projects that include learning another language and playing piano.

Been feeling a bit rough all day. At first I thought it was due to food intolerance, but as time has gone by, I've realised I have a stomach bug. Urgh. I've managed to do quite a bit of Italian and start making my Christmas cards, so all is not lost.

Italian language? I know a bit (only the tourist level) but my boyfriend is almost coversational; but then again he is almost conversational in 4/5 languages and puts me to shame. Good luck with your language learning.

Yes, I've been doing Duolingo for 18 months and am a few days away from finishing that.  I also take lessons.  I studied French for 7 years at school, and can still read and write it.  I can remember a few stock phrases in German... and today I started Portuguese because I've been collaborating with a Portuguese poet (so far in the English language!)

I've got a sick bug, bleurgh.  I've been away from here today (unusually), feeling too peaky to write anything original, or add any constructive feedback.  I have, however, sorted out the artwork for my upcoming book, and cobbled it all together roughly in order!  I'm hoping to have it ready in a couple of weeks.
