I am a (just hanging in there) forty something mum of three, step-mum of three, all of whom have left home, apart from my Boomerang Boy who has once again rebounded into his default position in the spare room. I can usually be found in the kitchen cooking up a myriad of delights for my long suffering husband, AlphaMale. My culinary successes generally appear on here, the disasters usually end up in the bin. Apart from cooking, my other loves are my bikes and my garden, which leaves very little time for housework – hence my blog and Twitter name, RubbishWife. I also have a random tendency to share some of the funnier thoughts that pop into my head on my Ramblings page.
