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.
I’m admittedly not the biggest advocate of the humble arts and crafts pastime, where small people are concerned. I have quite a base level resentment of mess (which makes me the most fun mum in the world, right?!). But when Chalkola sent me some of their chalk markers...read more
I've been back in the work saddle for six months now, and if there's one thing I've truly realised this time around, it's that flexibility is key. It's impossible to be a "good" mum and a "good" employee without one slipping to favour the other from time to time....read more
Bah. It's that time again - everyone is booking holibobs and getting ombre highlights. Since having Child #2, it is BLOODY HARD to find the spare £1k+ to go away somewhere decent...and every summer I'm baffled by the amount of spare cheddar that people manage to find...read more
I like to support the small guy, from my position of great blogging power and superiority (I jest of course). A couple of my friends set up a great website recently called You Have To Laugh, which collates together the very cream of blogging talent. Kind of like a...read more
I was researching posts for one of my other blogging ventures recently, when I read something about mental illness that made me put down my cup of tea and exclaim: "Shit - that makes total sense." I'm a round-up editor for BritMums and so each month, I set a theme...read more
So two runny-type things happened lately. 1. I entered the ballot for the Virgin London Marathon 2018. Yep. All that. 2. There was an attempt to break the sub-two hour marathon by Eliud Kipchoge on the Monza Grand Prix circuit. He didn't quite manage it, and I can't...read more
Waaaay back when I started blogging, I found a lady that I liked, who wrote words that I liked, in an order that I liked. Her name was Sarah, her blog is Mumzilla, and she's become a friend too. One of her posts, forever ago, was all about her favourite things. I...read more
Well, I've just about recovered from all the April stress. As lovely as it was, being the start of spring and all that, I think I'd subconsciously been dreading this month since late 2016. Off the blog... Back in September last year, I wrote about applying for a...read more
My marginally least feral child (subject to change at parental discretion) turns four in a few days. I KNOW!! She'll be applying for a paper round soon and popping five bob in the housekeeping jar. Definitely not kissing boys and teaching me how to contour my...read more
This may come as something of a shock, but my blog turns a year old this month. I dread to think how many thousands of words I've thrust out there into the ether in the hope that someone might take pity on me and give me a book deal. Still waiting for that, as it...read more
