Saturday, I opened a loaf of sliced white bread and was disgusted, disgusted I tell you to discover a huge gaping hole right through the middle of the entire loaf. I had in actual fact unwittingly purchased a bag of bread crusts.
So, incandescent with rage at having to forgo my sardines on toast, I angrily tweeted Kingsmill demanding to know excatly what they were going to do about it.
Yesterday morning I received a reply from Kingmill asking me to e-mail them further details and they will start an investigation with immediate effect.
However, upon retrieving the loaf in question from the freezer for photographic evidence, turns out it's a Hovis loaf.
I won't say anything if you don't...
What daft things have you said or done whilst pregnant, or not?

Dear Carpal Tunnel Syndrome,
I need my hands, so cock off.
I know there's only 6 weeks to go until we finally meet you and things are getting a wee bit cramped in there, but please, for the love of all that is holy, stop trying to stretch it further. Oh, and that cushion you keep bouncing your head off? That's my bladder, I use it to pee.
Your beleaguered mother x
Dear Stranger in the school playground,
Don't stand next to me and talk to your friend about babies who don't sleep at night then turn, smile at me and say, 'you've got this all to come.' I've had two children before, this is evident by the fact I was at the school to pick one of them up. Also, I am well aware of the fact some children don't sleep, this little gem didn't pass me by unnoticed as my youngest didn't sleep through the night until she started full time education. Contrary to my appearance I have not had a frontal lobotomy and thus simply forgotten that babies may and do wake in the night.
And while we at it, please don't causally mention how tired I look already, I may just kick you in the chuff.
Yours, Hormonal and not above murder x

Today I became the mother of a 14 year old. How the Hell did that happen? Well, I know how *it* happened, but how did it happen?
Some of you know that my eldest daughter, Ana, is on the autistic spectrum and to say getting to this point has not been an easy ride is an understatement. It always amazes me that we've managed to make it this far relatively unscathed.
Because, it doesn't matter how much you love them, how much you'd lay your life down for them or how much of a great parent you are, there will come times when parenting a special needs child where you just feel like throwing in the towel. Selfishly stamping your feet and crying, 'This isn't what I signed up for! I don't want to play anymore!'Thankfully for us those days are few and far between, but they do happen. I am just so grateful that we have been able with wonderful support from friends, family and professionals to get through each and every one of those moments. Sadly some families have not been so lucky.
So Happy 14th Birthday Ana, it's been great and at times it has been 'interesting', but we made it together!
P.S. The cupcake placement could be better. It could be in my mouth!
