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
This week is a bit of a mishmash of photos. I haven’t actually taken that many this week, for some reason. The camera on the phone I have, is very basic, and doesn’t take great photos, and our proper big camera needs repairing, but getting it done has been WAY down on my never-ending to […]READ MORE
When people (usually Mum’s, but I have been asked by curious Dad’s, Grandparents and childcare providers) see that my Small boy is wearing a cloth nappy or I happen to mention that we use them, the first questions they ask is: but aren’t they a hassle? Don’t they make life more complicated? How do […]READ MORE

But inside it’s simply delightful, because I have made American style pancakes, with proper maple syrup and crispy bacon (These are gluten and dairy free too!) Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…..READ MORE
I have got myself a reputation as a FruitShoot hater. It is common knowledge amongst my friends that I don’t like them and I will never willingly buy the drink for my children. I however, am NOT one of those parents who swoops down on their child at parties and events and won’t allow them to […]READ MORE
I did, I vacuumed my oven, and the computer keyboard (do you know how disgusting your computer keyboard is? We have a brushy type attachment that is perfect for sucking up all the gruesome detritus I could see lurking in ours, very satisfying!) inside my kitchen cupboards, and I also let Small Boy loose with the vacuum, and he happily sucked […]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.
