I'm a happy, middle-aged, woman. One of the joys of this? I can change my mind as often as I like, and not give a shit. Blame it on hormones, or age, whatever, it is what it is.

I love my little blog, over the years it's been with me, it's changed direction with my moods. I don't tend to go with the 'fashion', I go with what I like. The current wave are no longer really known as bloggers, they prefer to be called influencers, I am most definitely not one of those. I find that most 'influencers' tend to advertise and review, I have done this in the past, but no more.
I got an email, just yesterday, offering me a £33 face cream, in exchange for an Amazon review. I mean, really?! I buy my face cream from Aldi, or the Pound shop!
Most of the brands, that want people to advertise their products, are way out of my price range. That's not saying I won't share stuff I like, but I can guarantee it will be low cost (read cheap). I won't be producing a Mother's day guide, because I tend to make my mother's presents, or just give her time.
So I guess I could call myself a 'diarist', rather than a blogger/influencer. So if you have no interest in my life (or lack of it), diets and autism, then I won't be offended if you don't come back. We all have stuff going on, I'm happy just tapping away for no reason.
I'll continue to rant/share opinions, I like doing that on here. I feel there's a ranty post coming about period poverty, in the UK. When will we be more open about it? For now I shall stop there, as that deserves a post all of it's own.
The other thing, most posts will not go live until later in the evening. I don't have the time, or the energy, to write during the day. I'm still living with autism, after all, which means we are dealing with a lot at the moment, particularly in relation to school.
I hope you'll continue to join me x
