*Very funny & News

Well, this is my blog! A fictional blog which could be described as a Flog?  A mahoosive thank you for all the positivity out there! I’ve been blogging and flogging since late February 2016 and it’s fair to say that I have been overwhelmed by the lovely comments I have received from bloggers and readers! Gert lush (slightly annoying saying that no one in Devon actually says).*If I can get a chuckle out of you – great, if it’s more of a coffee-infused nose snort of a laugh then I’m chair dancing right here!

All I know is that I love this blogging malarkey and get the ‘happy-scary-adrenalins’ every time I press publish!

*Full disclaimer: some viewers may find this blog hilariously funny while others may feel it is only slightly amusing. All opinions are your own.

Go on, follow me and keep up with all my newly posted posts and shiz!

It’s the Mumsnet Blogging Awards. Thanks so much if you gave me a nomination for ‘Best Comic Writer’.

Here is a comment that I received from Dawn at www.rhymingwithwine.com for 18. Village survival, a colourful (parental) visit. Dawn writes fab poems on many subjects – often about parenting. I always enjoy her poems because she writes brilliantly and her rhyming is absolutely spot on! I loved this comment because it encapsulated so much of what I want to convey in my blog!

“I so enjoy reading your posts! In fact, I actually put the kettle on and settled down for this one as your writing is like a little holiday to Devon for me with a sprinkle of general hilarity thrown in for good measure. Just brilliant…..”
