Project 365. A photo a day, every day of the year. My roses are almost finished, but thank goodness my neighbour has some left. His garden is always beautiful, and his roses are lovely. Stop and smell the roses, when you can.READ MORE
I always thought pretzels were hard to make for some reason, but apparently not only are they fun and relatively easy to make but are also a good kids recipe too. We often frequent the rather amazing German bakery near us, for giant, salted pretzels (and let’s not mention their fabulous cakes, I am on a health kick, or their really good gluten free […]READ MORE
Project 365. A photo a day, every day of the year. Dad might have not one but two degrees in engineering and all things tech geeky, but he still needs a small boy to show him how to use an Apple pen… This is a new tool for work, home school and fun, that we […]READ MORE

I currently don’t practice as a nurse, but I do work with families […]READ MORE
Project 365. A photo a day, every day of the year. That face you make, when you realise the awesome that is Ikea, because the last time you went you were a baby and you can’t remember. Anyone else feel this way?READ MORE
Welcome to Our Week in Photos. 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. It’s been a funny old week. I haven’t taken many photos, which is unusual for me. We have all had a […]READ MORE
*This is a review post, which contains an affiliate link* I am always looking for great learning resources as a mum, for my kids, particularly now we are on a homeschool journey with our son, and when I find something we like, that works well, then I like to share about it.

*This is a review post. We were kindly sent a book to read and share about* Getting my kids to learn to read, and also to enjoy reading is one of the basics of parenting for me. I think that if you can get your kids reading, and love reading, in whatever form works for […]READ MORE
Project 365. A photo a day, every day of the year. The tween and I don’t get a lot of time alone together, these days. So it’s a treat when she gets on a bus from school and comes to where I work, then proceeds to drag me out for cake, because “I am STARVING”. […]READ MORE
*This is a review post. We were kindly sent some snacks to try* We are big fans of popcorn in our house, and it’s usually a snack that I am happy for my kids to have, and enjoy myself. I can make popcorn, in fact it’s a fun snack to make, and very satisfying, too, […]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.
