Mouse, Moo & Me Too
Hello! Welcome to my blog. You’ll find a lot about parenting (minimal advice, I promise), a fair amount about health and fitness (abs goals), and some tear-jerking misery porn. Plus the odd review and a few nice photos. Oh, and sometimes a recipe that I’ve ripped off from a proper recipe website.
Read, enjoy, share, bookmark, read again.
Now, I've said "race" in the title but this applies to any sort of event that you've trained for, really. We put so much into training and prepping for the bloody thing that we completely neglect to brace ourselves for the onslaught of the post-race blues...the fourth...read more
I’ve tapped into quite a beautiful little running community on Instagram recently. Typically, in the context of Instagram, a “community” refers to a hashtag that will enable users to effectively save photos against that tag, and look at what others have also tagged....read more
Yo yo. Still on holiday, still sunning myself in Cornwall (hopefully). But the keen reader will have noticed I've been trying to drive a fitness slant to my blog for a while, and so I've put together a few ideas for post-workout snacks. A bit niche, yeah, but try it....read more
I'm on holiday this week! I really am. Cornwall to be exact. I expect it's raining. I'm actually writing this from the past, so as not to deprive my three faithful readers of high quality blog content. I'm a big fan of the old Tag post, where someone (Possibly the...read more
At the moment, I have no idea if this will turn into a funny post or a raging one. I do know that I've had a bloody good cry, I've screamed into a pillow, and I've eaten approximately £8 worth of chocolate covered marshmallows. So it's all to play for, really. Argh....read more
So, it was our fifth wedding anniversary recently. How time flies when you're ageing badly and raising two "spirited" children! We've watched our wedding DVD precisely twice (it's too cringe) but we do have the odd chinwag about what we'd go back and change. Which, it...read more
Now. I don’t want to piss on anyone’s summer picnic, but it’s September in less than three months. This means termtime. I know, I know, most parents are limping towards the summer holidays barely able to stomach thinking about the next school year. But my eldest...read more
Do you ever hoist up your judgeypants when you read something on social media about parenting styles...then immediately realise that actually, you don't follow your own ideal at all? I'm that person. I'm calling bullshit on myself - my name is Sam, and I'm a parental...read more
I've very briefly touched on my race day anxiety before, in some of my other fitness posts. Recently, I entered a race where I was so cocksure about it being a piddly distance, that surely I couldn't possibly get nervous in the build up. Oh, how wrong I was! So, I've...read more
Disclaimer: This has nothing to do with juggling. At all. No, I thought I'd put together some more fitness hacks for you, following on from the roaring critical acclaim (!) that my last fitness motivation post had. I've been trying to gently swerve my Instagram feed...read more
