Technically she’s not six for 17 more days, but she keeps telling me “I’m ALMOST six Mummy, that’s grown up!” The subject of ear-piercing has so far been avoided and she has been vehemently against the idea. She was interested because her two best friends at school both have pierced ears, and obviously, so do […]READ MORE

Disclaimer, I am NOT pregnant. However, the Duchess of Cambridge is, and I am delighted for her and Prince William. We’re big Royal Family fans. I am not delighted at the fact that the poor woman is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum and has been hospitalized for treatment. I feel incredibly sorry for her, having suffered from the […]READ MORE
This is a bit of a random post, we’ve had a hard week and weekend. We’ve all had a “flu” bug, we seem to be in the midst of a germ fest, I guess the weird weather isn’t helping. Small boy was sick all weekend, but thankfully is back to normal again. I hate it […]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.
