Louise, a Single mother of two has recently had an encounter with breast cancer but continues in her daily pursuit of laughter from the ordinary and inappropriate. Her tween son Mr Mac has Asperger’s and a rocking sense of humour, her daughter Miss Lipstick has an extraordinary appetite for makeup and is the most organised ten year old you’ll ever meet.

They live a quiet but eventful life in the countryside with their two furry labrador companions the needy chocolate one and the young black destroyer.

So Why No Full Stops?

Louise says:

“I have always charged through life, moving from one event to another at a frantic pace.  Those who know me will tell you how I talk with almost breathless speed, as if full stops are a luxury not required. This was until in March 2015 when an unexpected diagnosis of breast cancer provided the ultimate full stop to my life’s script.

I initially resented the challenge as I felt I had already fulfilled my quota of life’s trials and tribulations. A few years earlier I had fought an uphill battle to finalise my son’s diagnosis of Asperger’s and relocate the family to the countryside.  This single mother of two felt she’d hit the ultimate trifecta with this unplanned diversion.

Following a year of operations and treatment, I’ve been given this extended time to to reflect, re-evaluate and reboot. I am now ready to start a new sentence. I hope you will join me as life returns to a “new kind of normal” and a few more lessons are learnt along the way.”
