Arrrrgggghhhh World Book Day!

Tomorrow is World book day, our school didn’t dress up last year and I felt like they missed out a bit, but now I’m thinking it was great cos it took all of the stress away. You know how it goes, the email comes out from the school , everyone goes crazy for a couple […]

The kick start I needed to lose weight

I can tell you that faced with a video of your bare behind is one of the most shocking things that can happen! I was deleting videos from my phone cos it’s January and I’m having a clear up, when I came across said film. I thought my daughter had been creating a movie with […]

Dinosaur troubles

My darling five year olds homework this week was to write a poem about a dinosaur, IN THE SHAPE OF A DINOSAUR! What? You have got to be kidding me? That sounds like parents home work to me and I have no jeffing idea where to start with it, when I draw a stick man […]

Who needs shoes???

Okay I’m probably the worst mother in the world, I certainly was the worst mother in the school last one day last week when I sent my daughter without any shoes! The poor thing, I hadn’t packed (I drop her off at silly o’clock in her pyjamas to my amazing childminder) anything to go on […]

First day of school

It’s an emotional thing seeing your little ones go off to school for the first time. I knew that I would have tears, but I don’t really know why? Is it because it’s the end of an era, because they’re growing up so quickly or just pride in them? My daughter started today and I […]

What are Dads for?

I often wonder if my daughter misses out with not having a father around at all, she has strong male role models all around her, but recently a couple of things have come up that I see as ‘dad’ jobs, the first is gross and the second I’ve just got on with. Farting, letting out […]

After school clubs

Cast your mind back to when you were at school, apart from netball, did you take part in any after school activities? This term my 5 year old daughter has been offered the chance to go to after school clubs, here’s a selection of what’s on offer, cricket, parachute fun (I presume they are meaning […]

A world of worry

We welcomed a new baby to the family this week and I can’t get out of my mind how much it is a welcome to a world of worry. Worrying about them, people around them, germs, even the air around them. Worrying when you’re with them that you’re doing too much, that you’re doing too […]

Don’t do it, it’ll stink…

WARNING! To everyone taking kids to a beach this summer. If you are looking for interesting stones and pebbles and come across some crabs legs that your child finds fascinating, LEAVE THEM THERE! I can confirm that putting them in a toy bag for a week, so they’re safe for next month’s ‘show and tell’ […]

Do I have the weirdest child in the world?

My five-year-old daughter has just wolfed down a full roast chicken dinner, minus the potatoes, she doesn’t like them not even chips, strange kid huh. Nothing really out of the ordinary there, until you hear what she asked for next. With a clean plate in front of her she asked “Can I have some more […]
