Sally Flint

I’m not a fan of social media posts that suggest the writer’s life is perfect. I just don’t buy it! My blog, aims to show a middle-aged-mamma’s life – warts and all! If you enjoy a smile, chat and a cup of tea with a pal, I think my posts might be for you.


If you’ve been following a while, you’ll know that I love to read, so the main focus of my website has always been to share book reviews and book club questions. Nothing is about to change there – books are, after all, what keep me sane (ish!)
