Diary of a stressed-out rock fan

by Sherilee (sixsister 3)

Well, July finally arrived, the month that my little darling became a toddler. I decided to cater for the birthday celebration solely by myself (yes, homemade coleslaw, potato salad etc!). Even my mother was impressed and believe me, it takes a lot! I also made the cake completely from scratch but had a little help for the icing part from my mate (and a large glass of Pimms!). It wasn’t until after that I realised that my age is really starting to show – it took me two weeks to recover from having a house full of toddlers and all the cleaning up after. I was absolutely knackered!

July was also the month that I FINALLY went to a gig after almost two years (more about that in the gigs section).

Family also played a big part in July. My mum had an almighty row with her former sister in law over visits (or lack of) from her or the kids, even when my nan was fighting off a serious illness. I know there are two sides to every story but surely the fact that my mum stuck by her when my uncle left should count for something? Obviously not. As the old saying goes, you can choose your friends but you can’t choose your family!

Anyhow, back to the grindstone – until next month….

This month I

LOVE: James Dean Bradfields new album The Great Western, Lily Allen, Pimms and lemonade.

HATE: Cooking, Cleaning and not being able to have a lie in anymore!
