A little bit of history repeating.

A little bit of history repeating.

Firstly I’d like to start by saying SORRY MUM.

When I was younger I idolised my parents, they were the most fantastic people in the whole wide world.
The people I looked up to most. Read more

Weird stuff my kids do

Weird stuff my kids do

Sometimes I sit and I think. I remember the days before children, my shallow, empty existence with a tidy house, organised life, variety of conversation topics and nights out in abundance. Then I look at my babies, sitting there, looking like butter wouldn’t melt, one of them eating the food in order of what they like least to best whilst the other tips it all on the floor because it tastes better from there and I think to myself…

You’ll never walk alone (with a toddler)

You’ll never walk alone (with a toddler)

One of the THE┬ámost stressful part of my day is the walk home from school. It’s not far, a mile, it’s a slight incline all the way and it’s like being dragged about by a herd of rampaging wildebeest!

It starts in the playground while we wait for Aoife, Seth sits on the floor in the mud. Sometimes he might have a little lay, a small roll around. I take a snack to try and keep him on his feet. He has been known to pick it off the floor and eat it. Then he has a little crawl in the mud, he is more than capable of walking but crawling is more fun. Read more

What kind of Mummy are you?

Once a month I submit a post for Meet Other Mums, a lovely site for meeting other mums in your area and reading lots of fab blogs. The deadline was looming so obviously I did a quick ‘Which DC character are you?’ quiz before I started (Batman in case you’re interested). Obviously, in the spirit of equality I had to do a ‘Which Marvel character are you?’ quiz (Thor – URGH, No one wants to be Thor) and then a ‘Which female superhero/villain are you?’ (Harley Quinn) as you can tell, I love a good quiz. I always have, it started with the Just Seventeen ‘What kind of friend are you?’ and spiralled from there. In homage to my love of quizzes, I decided to create my very own. Read more

Order is restored! Or at least something resembling order is restored.
Aoife is back at school, Rory is back at work and Seth is watching Toy Story 2 back to back whilst dressed as Buzz Lightyear. Read more
