It’s a mixed bundle this week, a conglomeration of germs, emotions and milestones… This little boy started Nursery school, this week. He looks so small, when he trots off, with his book bag and uniform, for his 3 hour stint. He is loving it, and settling in. I have cried a few tears this week, […]READ MORE
So we did a bit of re arranging last week and the children are now sharing a room. It involved some tidying, de cluttering, and DIY which LSH was in charge of, man like. Can you Sat Cap this picture…? Don’t forget to click on the linky and see sore more marvellous musings at Mammasaurus’s blog […]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
Yes, I am writing about sleep, once again. Just when you thought I couldn’t write any more about sleep, and that we were actually getting some sleep, I thought I would bore you with more of my sleep woes. Yes, some of the Mad House are getting sleep, sadly not all, and you guessed it, that’s […]READ MORE
Starts nursery (pre school) today. He is SO excited and ready to join some of his friends who already are there. He had a hair cut yesterday, and I prepped and packed his bag to take with him. I have already cried and feel very emotional about the whole thing. I have blogged about it here […]READ MORE
Is nearly 3 and a half. We have been through a lot together, and I am really, really struggling to let go, and to relax at the idea of him being at nursery school. I don’t know why I am so emotional about it. He is SO ready, and SO excited, and will have such […]READ MORE
We’ve had fun, and as our relationship grew, we developed a bond. You kept me company in the wee small hours when I was awake with a non sleeping small boy, and you have cheered me up on my commute to work, and when I have had five minutes with “nothing to do”, you were […]READ MORE
This week has been ok, but I have a confession to make… I haven’t weighed myself. For two reasons: It’s that “time of the month” (yes, I will talk about hormones and girl stuff in the post, Dad, you can stop reading now, if you want to) and I feel bloated, I know I am […]READ MORE
It’s been a really crazy week, with so much going on, work, school, meet the teacher meetings, violin lessons, steam cleaning everything in site (I look like an extra from Ghost Busters according to LSH) birthday parties, visits to the vet for certain feline members of the household, oh yes, and in case you hadn’t […]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.
