Two weeks with the plague: A whole family with the flu

The weekend before last, I went out on the Friday night. Nothing fancy; just Wetherspoons so really quite the opposite. I (predictably) drank too much wine. The next day, I thought I was actually going to die. Turns out though, it wasn’t actually just a massive hangover or lack of …

Rainy day play dates

Right now, as I type this, we are having our third play date of the week. By the end of the week it will be four. FOUR. This is fairly unusual; as a sane person I don’t generally encourage other children to come and help my own destroy the house …

Dear October: You suck (sorry)

We’re over a month into the school term now. One month since the big one went back to preschool. It seems to have absolutely flown past, despite the fact that we’ve had builders in the house every day (even on the weekends!) and the small one has been at home …

Need something exciting to do this weekend? Go to Tesco

Summer holiday diary: Week 1

Earlier in the week, over on Facebook, I decided to keep a School Holiday Diary. Of sorts. You know, pick out the highlights of the day, that sort of thing. Given this is a blog and that’s really what it’s for, I thought why not share it here. So here …

Oh, bugger: The toddler’s first swear

It has happened; we have a swear word. Another milestone ticked off the list; the final one in fact. You might be thinking that as the big one is off in the wide world of preschool at the moment (or has been, it’s the holidays… did I mention that yet?), …
