I also linked up with MummyBarrow for her Ranty Friday. You can […]READ MORE
Not being on Twitter or Facebook means I have to dump all the random photos I take in the week somewhere…. This weeks mishmash: Blowing out candles on the birthday cake (she had a delayed celebration, because Small Boy was ill on her actual birthday and we spent 3 hours at the walk-in clinic to […]READ MORE
They literally fall apart on your feet as you are walking around town, doing some shopping. Yup, I am slightly mortified to admit, that my walking shoes, which I wear pretty much all the time, during the winter, unless I am going to an event where I need to be dressed up, decided to fall […]READ MORE
Well, this blog is titled the “MAD CATS and babies” so you have to expect the odd piece about the cats themselves! This was Jasper, today, asleep on my bed, curled up, hiding away. It’s clearly a hard life….. This is what I’d like to do today. I want to curl up, in a warm […]READ MORE
So, one night about two weeks ago, I’m in bed, it’s 10pm at night, the children are asleep, LSH is out for a meal with his work colleagues, and I am just about drifting off to sleep… When I hear a “beep”, just a single, sharp, beep. I try to ignore it, but it goes […]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.
