Bullied over a boozy lunch in a spa (not an everyday occurrence at all) to start a blog, I’ve found myself here.

A couple of years ago my husband’s children came to live with us, permanently. It was a huge shock to all of the family and one that no doubt many families have encountered in some way. I know from personal experience how difficult it can be, but also how rewarding.

This blog is not going to be all baking cookies and trips to the seaside, although hopefully that may one day happen, but it does aim to be honest, occasionally funny and accidentally informative.

There’ll be a lot of swears too.
