When I started blogging, I had two objectives. To write, which has always been a kind of therapy for me, and to share. As my 'voice' developed, I discovered something amazing. There is magic in the story. There is magic in me.

I always get a little bit nostalgic on birthdays, so I have spent the morning re-reading my stories and I thought I'd share a selection of my favourite posts from the last year that you may have missed or may just like to revisit.
1. My first post - the one about mums at school.
2. 50 Shades of Twilight - the one I had the most fun writing... [warning: involves anal plugs and nipple clamps]
3. Make My Day - the one that I go a bit mental in.
4. While you were sleeping - the one that makes me cry a little bit when I read it.
5. 10 Parenting Rules - the one that went viral.
6. Dear Men - the one where I write about dry-humping.
7. Stretch-mark Swagger - the one about my thighs.
Do you have a favourite? Is there a story you'd like me to tell?
