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.
May was a weird one, if I'm honest. Lots of lovely things happened, and a few very not lovely things. But the not lovely things aren't mine to talk about. Instead, I'm going to tell you about the "good bits", in my usual, prattling fashion. Now, there's an invitation!...read more
Festival equals great. Festival equals mud-caked debauchery, a bit of Shandy Bass, lots of legs on show, and dirty bulking via a burger and chips van. FAMILY festival equals all of the above, by everyone else, diluted with a thousand-strong army of knackered looking...read more
Funny old thing, sustaining new life via your boobs. We're all told that breastmilk is the best source of milky goodness for the first six months of a baby's life, but I'm not going to get into the whole breast vs bottle debate here. Instead, I'm going to witter on...read more
Have you heard of Bidvine? I hadn't, until recently. It's basically a website that connects customers with interested, available and qualified local professionals, to help you with pretty much any lifestyle project. So we're talking cleaners, plumbers, dog...read more
Why is that when everyone else around you seems to be getting lovely new cars, yours has a spell of misfortune and seems to limp towards the scrapyard? Time for some fresh wheels, maybe… Our car is way old. Like, 2007 old. We’ve gone through two batteries, one...read more
I wrote this a while ago, published it on a Canadian parenting site, and got a fair bit of stick from it. But, you know, let's get talking about the things that make us feel shitty, shall we? Just in case anyone has ever experienced a similar sitch with being phased...read more
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
