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 find […]READ MORE
I have had a lot of people ask me “so what exactly is a grommet and what does it do?”. Small Boy is due to have a small procedure, under general anaesthetic, next week, to insert grommets into both of his ears. The correct term for the procedure is Myringotomy and insertion of grommets. It […]READ MORE
As LSH said, you can tell when Small Boy is in the house by where you find his wellington boots….READ MORE
This is one of my parenting confession posts, where I spill the beans on a parenting foible or failure, I have experienced or feel that I want to share! As the title says. I hate crafts, and craft related activities. That sounds a little extreme, and probably is slightly exaggerated, but I really do not […]READ MORE
I didn’t do a Magic Moment post last week, but I am back this week, and linking up with The Oliver’s Mad House, as usual. Click on her linky at the end of this post, to join in, and to see other Magic Moments posts. As part of my “job”, I run parent & toddler […]READ MORE
I am often asked “how do you feed your family, if you can’t use dairy, or wheat, what do you do about cheese, pasta, milk sauces etc? I am currently planning to set up a blog for recipes and exploring gluten and dairy free eating, but I thought, that I would share a week’s typical […]READ MORE
I am now, back to doing this: 3x a day, until I see my physiotherapist at the end of next week. I am not allowed to run, nor am I supposed to lift heavy stuff and take strain on my knee. I am feeling a bit blue about the whole thing. Think of something funny […]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.
