Project 365. A photo a day, every day of the year. This year I have decided I am obsessed with roses. My children now roll their eyes, when they see roses when we are out and about because they know that I will want to take a photo. My instagram feed is mainly where I […]READ MORE
A month ago today, the kids and I left this man in hospital. We were reeling from shock after having him admitted with what was initially suspected to be a heart attack, then a diagnosis of a virus in his heart. The last four weeks have been hard. I think they have been some of […]READ MORE
Welcome to Our Week in Photos. This is very belated, and late. But better late than never I guess, and our way of sharing our week and what we get up to with our family abroad and grandparents who like to keep up with our life and antics. If I said that the end of […]READ MORE
Project 365. A photo a day, every day of the year. “THAT man is on MY chair, what are YOU going to do about it?” That look. These two are ridiculous but it’s a sign that he’s feeling better after a week of nasty flu which has hit him hard post Myocarditis recovery. I’ll take […]READ MORE
*This is a review post. We were kindly sent items to review. All opinions are our own* My small son LOVES watching Monster Jam. huge trucks racing and competing against each other. Noisy, big, crashing. Basically his idea of a lot of fun. So being able to recreate that at home, with Monster Jam trucks […]READ MORE
I wasn’t going to vote. I didn’t actually want to. It feels entirely stupid and futile, with a government that understands nothing of the needs of ordinary people, but hell bound and determined to drag our country down. I worry for my kids future. I often don’t want to be here any more. I don’t […]READ MORE
Project 365, a photo a day, every day of the year. Daisy the Dog says “Hey small human, you seem to be not paying attention to me. If you aren’t going to play, then can you move so I can have the seat for a snooze please?” We really need to get this boy a […]READ MORE
Project 365. A photo a day, every day of the year. Birthdays the past month have been a bit of a bypass. The bigger boy had a birthday today. He’s had a pretty quiet one. We are planning to celebrate at the weekend. He has up and down days and we are looking after him. […]READ MORE
Project 365. A photo a day, every day of the year. My tween doesn’t approve of these shoes. She calls them “another pair of mid life crisis shoes”. I can’t think where she gets her sarcastic wit from? I say “pom-pom shoes make the day better” and wear them anyway… This was a Monday that […]READ MORE

Welcome to the Mad House. I originally started this blog, in a blur of sleep deprivation, to get my thoughts and feelings down somewhere, on parenting, second time round, with a baby that had major sleep issues (and not just normal ones) but it has grown and grown. We are now well into our fifth year at the Mad House and you will find blog posts on anything from gardening, to politics, with lots of ramblings on parenting, and also about living with food intolerances. I blog about cows milk and gluten free cooking too.
