Dory

Sometimes my name is Dory.

Man calls me this because I can be a bit ditsy (remember Finding Nemo?)

Sometimes my name is Muggins.

Daughters number one and two started this. It’s short for Cottonheadedninnymuggins (another film reference, this time Elf). It means someone cute and loveable but not really very bright.

Are either of those me?  Probably.

I’m a single mum, working journalist, wannabe photographer, part-time blogger, jack-of-all-trades, master of none.

I was married for more than 20 years, divorced three years ago, to a man who sadly died a few months ago after losing his long-term battle with alcohol.

My life is busy, full, demanding, chaotic and loads of fun. It sometimes reads like a bad soap opera, but it is never dull.

I have two beautiful and amazing daughters and a Man I want to spend the rest of my life with.

I want to change my life by the time I’m 50 and the countdown clock has begun.

The following posts explain more:

I’m glad you stopped by, thank you, and I’d love to hear from you so leave me a comment or two.
