Jane Smith

A mum. On the edge. In Sheffield

I’m the mumonthenetheredge - Nether Edge being an area of Sheffield, my home town in the UK. I’m not sure what I’m on the edge of. Mostly sanity. Occasionally glory. Often I’m on the edge of a toilet seat trying to have a crap whilst being assaulted by two small girls.

My Husband's Affair

It seems that my husband has been having an affair. And I've got absolutely no idea what I'm going to do about it. Because what the hell do you do when there's suddenly someone else in the middle of your relationship? In the middle of your family?

Are My Children Trump Supporters?

<strong>6. They like building walls</strong> They tell me they build the best walls. No one can build walls like they can. They know all about wall-building, and no, they don't want any advice or assistance. (Their walls, are, by the way, <strong>shit).</strong>
