Project 365. A photo a day, every day of the year. We might be a little Pokémon crazy in our house, and we might have just been to see the new Pikachu movie, and we might have taken some photos of a cat who isn’t impressed by Pokémon hunting. There isn’t really a Pikachu on Jasper’s head, […]READ MORE
All over social media, all over the internet, every self help book you read, every life coach promoting their programme, every event you go to, tells us we need to “dream big”, “set high goals”, “make more of ourselves” “be the dream”, “shine like a star” (I could go on, but you get the drift?) […]READ MORE
Project 365. A photo a day, every day of the year. I am totally showing my age, aren’t I, if I admit that I was talking to a colleague at work the other day, and we got to talking about older computer games we played, before Wii, before Playstation, before Xbox. Sonic the Hedgehog? Anyone […]READ MORE
*This is a collaborative post with Viking Tape which we hope is helpful* When the weather gets warmer, and spring is properly here, and you are thinking about summer and all the things you are looking forward to, it’s easy to let those jobs that you noticed needed doing, over the winter, slip to the […]READ MORE
As a family we love experimenting and trying new things, and I always am on the look out for fun projects that we can do that incorporate learning into them. I am not a gardener, but I do love plants and nature, and anything to do with easily growing things, that the children can also […]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.
