Out of the mouths of babes!

I have a nearly three year old grand-daughter who sadly for me lives in New Zealand with her Kiwi dad and Aussie mum.  Thank goodness for Skype and Facebook messenger. My days are often interrupted with hilarious excerpts of 'out of the mouths of babes" and this kid, god bless her is quite possibly the funniest … Continue reading Out of the mouths of babes!

This blog piece is for any women out there who are, shall we say, ‘gracefully advancing in years” and perhaps even for their partners, as I take a light-hearted look at what is often deemed a women’s only issue, but in my opinion affects men as well.

I have heard a lot of things in my lifetime some of it wise, some of it hilarious and sometimes like today....well it just defies belief.
