I am usually excited by scientific discoveries, especially when they mean the world is closer to finding a cure for diseases like AIDS or cancer, or new treatments or genetic code breakthroughs, that mean we understand diseases or conditions better, and why they happen. I am fascinated by the human body, how it works, and […]READ MORE
We had a lovely trip to Brighton on Saturday, and ended our day with a round of Crazy golf. Both children loved it, and much cheating and not so subtle placing of balls in the correct holes instead of hitting them went on! I think Small Boy is more likely to play hockey at school, […]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.

I blog about cows milk and gluten free cooking too.
