The big 6 is nothing to do with energy companies

What an absolute quagmire is trying to sort out a sixth birthday party! With a month ago I asked my daughter which six friends she would like to have to the party, she came up with the six so quickly that we put the numbers up to 8, then after delivering the invitations to her […]

Pumpkin pain

Hats off to parents that have been carving and hollowing pumpkins for years, that is a tough gig man! It took me an hour per pumpkin, I’ve got rivets in my fingers and cuts on my hands and both orange fruity things look like they were done by a 2 year old! I remember when […]

Caught cake handed! 

Caught out! Yep I got caught red handed trying to hide the fact that I was stuffing my face with chocolate Swiss roll from a kids party buffet. I wasn’t even hungry until the bowls of sausages and crisps started to come out. My daughter only eats 3 wotsits and half a chicken nugget on […]

Birthday party wars…

I can’t really believe that even before my daughter is 4, we are already in a birthday party war. The competition is real. You can’t let your little darling down by just giving them a birthday tea with a couple of mates, who they will row with over a My Little Pony anyway. Oh no, […]

That woman, those shoes and the play date….

Let’s just have a little conversation about this woman who has tried to charge another mother £325 after a pair of boots got pen on them at a play date. Whaaaat? I’ve got too many questions, like why is a little girl wearing such expensive shoes if you’re going to be so prissy about it? […]

Am I being clever or lazy? 

Does anyone else see an easy option so clearly? I’m probably living up to my ‘bad mum’ title by saying this but my daughter is a fussy eater and so if I can spot a way to feed her that doesn’t take a. any cooking from me and b. Any preparation from me, then I’ll […]

I'm too soft…

 With it being half term, I agreed to my little girl having a Halloween party and her little mates would be free to attend. I think that she’d initially asked for it because she’s mad on the film hotel Transylvania, so I found her an outfit with bats on it so she could pretend to […]

All ready for the Halloween party.

Yep, all decorated and ready for my 3year old daughter’s Halloween party…..ON MY BIRTHDAY! 

Even my birthday isn't about me!

For more years than I care to let you know about, my birthday has been about 1 thing, me! On my 10th, my 20th and my 30th that one day of the year revolved around moi. Out for lunches and dinners, cards and presents flying around, I was in my element.  This year is a […]

Birthday party trauma…

I don’t tend to get embarrassed, but I had a right nightmare last weekend. I was taking my three-year-old daughter to her little mate’s party. To celebrate, she’d chosen to wear a flouncy tutu and sparkly shoes, so off we trotted to the venue. We opened the door to find a DJ playing lots of […]
