  • Tender

    Yesterday a lovely blog reader shared a comment on my post about doing battle with my daughter: “I know this scene! We can do that dance. Just last night. Afterwards my daughter made me a card, carefully cut out with coloured in love hearts and best […]

  • The Matador

    “I love you mummy,” she whispers in the dark. Warm body curled into mine. I am the matador. She the bull. We have danced our dance. Her horns, my red cape. Swirling, skidding, almost colliding, side stepping. The chance of a goring always close. Ten […]

  • Dear Blogger…12 Reasons Why I Don’t Comment on Your Blog

    Hey there, I’ve been reading you for ages… but we’ve never met. You’ve made me laugh till the wee ran down my legs. You’ve made me cry, big bawling snotty sobs, sending me to bed with a racing head and aching heart. You’ve made me […]

  • Mindful Nurturing: Play

    Play… sometimes we set up activities, sometimes it spontaneously evolves. Pants super heroes. Cardboard box rockets. Yesterday, here at the Pink House, we had SO much fun with our new glue gun! And using a white pen to create white on black zentangles. But for […]
