Screen free time? What is that? We are, as a family, very reliant on our devices. That’s actually ok. Phones, tablets, laptops, iPods etc, are incredibly handy. To be honest, my whole life runs with the aid of various devices and I do rely heavily on them. However, I do also believe that we can […]READ MORE
*We were kindly sent a book to read and review* We are big fans of reading in this house, and love finding new books and authors to add to our reading lists. As the world changes and becomes more aware of the issues our planet is facing, I am trying to encourage my kids to […]READ MORE
Project 365, a photo a day, every day of the year.READ MORE
She’s coming. I realised in December that I cannot manage the mad juggle of life without some extra help. I simply cannot keep on top of all the basics whilst being a working mum. I just don’t have the capacity. Other people seem to cope with working, parenting and keeping their house clean and tidy. […]READ MORE
Project 365. A photo a day, every day of the year. Where I come from we call this “get the paddling pool out” weather. Could it be that we are actually going have some sunshine, and summer may manifest. The husband is even threatening to do some gardening if it carries on like this. Who’s […]READ MORE
*This is a review post. We were kindly sent a box to review and share about* This blog does feature the cats every now and then, they are of course, in the name. So we love to share about things that are cat related too. It’s only fair. The team from Cattitude recently sent us […]READ MORE
Project 365, a photo a day, every day of the year. For me, there are a few essentials in life. Caffeine, in coffee form, of course, and also, a stash of cans of cola, diet cola. I feel happy and in control when there is some in the fridge. I don’t drink one every day, […]READ MORE
*This is a review post. We were kindly treated to a visit by GoBoat in exchange for a review. All opinions are our own* As a family we are always looking for fun things to do, especially in the holidays. We like getting out and about, and doing things that are a bit different. Now […]READ MORE
This is a very quick, cheat recipe. My kids LOVE pizza, but both my big boy and smaller boy are allergic to cows milk, so we have to look for other options. Goats milk products work for them, safely, so that’s what we use. Goats cheese, the hard version, is actually pretty good when melted, […]READ MORE
This is better late than never, right? As we spin halfway through April I am telling you about things we loved in April and what’s on my spring wish list. *This post does contain some affiliate and paid links, for your reference and disclosure* Our usual eclectic mix of food, products, things for me, and […]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.
