Dear Diary,

These vows ring in my head as a commode is delivered to my front room. In all my married years, I never thought that the day would come where I could not look after my husband anymore, but today, I feel as if I am come to the end.

Perfect Gift

It was my husband’s birthday the other day and I am really bad at buying him presents. Predominantly because I try an buy him clothes and they are always too small. I think I am indirectly trying to tell him to lose weight!!

Buying birthday gifts can be really difficult sometimes and what do you buy when you don’t really need anything and you are buying gifts for the sake of it.  Well Oxfam has the answer!!
