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 […]

Bad news from sports day

I’m absolutely gutted at the news I’ve just heard in the school playground at pickup time, there will be no parents race at sports day! What! I’ve been training for this for five years, ever since she was born, I’ve got spikes and starting blocks and I’m ready for that gold medal. Yes for the […]

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 […]

When/how will co-sleeping End?

The fact is, my daughter has snuck into my bed in the middle of the night for 3 years now. She doesn’t get such a good night sleep and nor do I, so I’ve tried everything I can to get her to stay in her bed. She does fall into a slumber in her bed […]

Nativity problems

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? […]

Just too tired….

I have a very tired little girl on my hands this week. My 3 year old is caught up in all the Christmas festivities in a big way. Everyday it seems there’s another thing going on, whether it be making another decoration to go on the tree, nativity or trip to see Santa, and it’s […]

Toy sale strikes fear!

Well done if you went to the Supermarket half price toy sale last week and got through it. I felt ready after watching a tv show on SAS training. I found myself in the middle of the bun fight and it was brilliant, much fun was had ‘politely pushing’ people out of the way, you […]

Arrrggghhh the schools saga continues….

Oh my goodness, this schools thing is an absolute mine field! There are 3 that I’d like to visit before my baby girl starts next September, but even going to see them throws up issues. Being a solo mum with a full time job as a radio presenter on the Heart breakfast show means I’ll […]
