This week has been fairly awful, to be honest. Small Boy caught the horrible cold lurgy that has been doing the rounds, and by Friday was not a well concoctation of atoms, as I have read quoted somewhere, and didn’t really start to recover until Sunday. LSH’s work pretty much took over our weekend, ruined our date night, and […]READ MORE
It’s this cat’s 2nd birthday today. I know, because Big Girl has it marked on her calendar, and has been counting down the days. She is actually hijacking the blog on Monday, to write her own Magic Moments post, for Jasper, but today, he wants a birthday Sat Cap… Then head on over to […]READ MORE
Welcome to my Friday’s Rants from the Soap Box in my Living Room. A small space in the week where I can have a chunter about things that have made me twitch with annoyance or made me question if the world has gone mad or not…. I also linked up with MummyBarrow for her Ranty Friday. […]READ MORE
So, the lovely Sophie, from Franglaise Mummy (I love her blog, go check it out) has tagged me in a post called The A-Z of me. I thought I might give it a whirl, and see if I could come up with some fun or interesting things about me, from A-Z. A – ants I […]READ MORE
So, I have blogged before, that I don’t drive. Whilst there is a possibility that I may finally admit I need to pass my test and get behind four wheels, possibly sometime in the next year, in the meantime I am stuck for transport. I am fed up of waiting endlessly for buses, and paying for public […]READ MORE

Ok, so I am about to do something that I never, ever normally do, and that fills me with dread, at the prospect. I am going to post a photo of myself, with no make up on, my hair in it’s usual crazy state, and looking VERY tired. If you are of a sensitive disposition, feel […]READ MORE
Last week, my Small Boy, who seems very small, in his uniform, trotting off with his book bag, started Nursery. This was a bigger milestone, for us, than it would seem. 6 months ago, we were in a pretty bad place. Small had some very evident sensory issues, and his behaviour and ability to cope in certain […]READ MORE
Thank you so much for linking up last week. I am loving reading your thoughts on weight loss, and hope we can all support each other, when we are struggling or feeling down, about our goals and how we are doing. I am also interested to hear how some of you get on with the […]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.
