I love the creative things my children produce… This week’s favourite, is a jewellery box for me, apparently! Who needs designer, when you can have “created by 6 year old”? 🙂READ MORE
(Image sourced from an ENT website, with permission) So, if you have been following me here, Facebook or Twitter, you will know we have had some major ongoing sleep issues with Small Boy. We suspected he was suffering from recurrent ear infections, with very few actual symptoms, and we have been working our way to […]READ MORE
I thought I would post a bit of randomness, about me, Mother Of the Mad Cats and Babies (although, they aren’t babies anymore, but I don’t want to change the name of the blog, because we might add another baby, at some point 😉 ) So, 10 things about me, little snippets or facts, that […]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. You can […]READ MORE
My Magic Moment this week is a bit random. I was actually a bit stumped for a post, and was almost tempted to miss it, as I had nothing to share but then I had a little moment on Saturday, and thought I’d blog about it. I have an old, old watch. A Swatch Watch, […]READ MORE
Oh look, she’s blogging about sleep, or lack of it, again, I hear you mutter. Yes, I am going to talk about sleep, and probably sound a bit whiney, but this is more of an update post, than anything else.

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.
