I have spent some time wondering and asking myself what I want to write about. I am not so profound that a philosophical discussion is about to be unravelled about the workings of my muddled mind. However, at this time in my life I am undispassionate about five things:

  • motherhood
  • politics
  • womanhood
  • wifehood
  • cooking.

Can I separate any of these from each other? There are some current well-admired commentators who might suggest that even the least likely of the two are perfect bedfellows.

I first met the ‘Cliche’ on a Friday afternoon in a pub. We were ‘just good friends’ at first, but then there was a shift in the Universe and we became a couple (of what?). It was whirlwind – all hands and legs and skin and smiling.

This is my inspiration to investigate the list I have laid out, probably because the ‘Cliche’ was at least involved in making some of them more relevant to me.
