Flying solo: One weekend of parenting alone

One hour and 17 minutes. That is how long I have been sitting in my children’s room, waiting for them to fall the f*ck to sleep. Specifically the small one. It is Saturday night, and it’s almost 8.30pm. By now I’ve basically read the whole of the internet and I …

The many ways in which I screwed up today

SO THIS IS HOW MY DAY WENT: 6:03: Small one awake. He gets out of bed, opens his bedroom door (he is like a sixteen-month-old Indominous Rex – never underestimate him) and starts banging against ours and squealing and whinging.  Time to get up! Or at least for daddy. I …

No one likes a tired Whingelet

Wet Mondays: Autumn is a bastard

Well goodbye summer… and hello autumn. With late September comes conkers, browning leaves, the smell of bonfires lingering in the air… The nights are drawing in earlier, just perfect for snuggling. Hot chocolate is mandatory and of course, there’s  the ability to hide excess pounds with thick woolly jumpers. That …

The one where I went to the MADBlog Awards 2016

Last night I went along to the #MADBlogAwards as a finalist in the Best New Blog Category. It was fabulous fun; the wine flowed, the food was good and the company was acceptable (calm down, I’m just kidding). Seriously though, bloggers are a fantastic bunch of people and man can …

Merry sodding Christmas: Booking Christmas in September

I imagine many of you think that a) you’ve clicked on an old link or b) I’ve gone mad. Whilst certainly the latter is nearer to the truth, I am aware that it is only September, and the beginning bit of it at that. I am however in the full …
