Apart from four years when I resided in Huddersfield studying for my degree, Wakefield in West Yorkshire has been my home. Known to Shakey Wakey by lots, it has its fair share of dodgy areas but what city doesn’t?! I grew up in the “everyone knows everyone” village of Wrenthorpe, where we live as a family of four now, where I felt safe walking around with my friends at night, aged fifteen and where I now take my son to play in the park, aged thirty three.

Mother’s Day is a week away (you’re welcome for the reminder) and, as it falls the weekend of my husband’s birthday, we will be spending it in lovely Whitby! We don’t spend a lot on Mother/Father’s Day, I’d be more than happy with a picture drawn by my son and a nice card but, on the basis that I like to blog, I thought I’d put a little list together of things that would make me smile on Mother’s Day...you never know, my husband might actually read it and produce the goods!
