I made these for our Mainly Music group this week, and was asked more than once, for the recipe, so I thought I would put it up on the blog. This recipe serves 32, which is double the original recipe (I was baking for a group of 30 or so) so if you want to, […]READ MORE

Instead I am blogging about #TeamHonk and #goodwork I follow MummyBarrow’s blog, and also Mammasaurus and The Alexander Residence, and this week, these ladies have been in Ghana, 48 hours with Comic Relief, live blogging and tweeting from four projects out there to show just what Comic Relief have done with […]READ MORE
Ok, I know it’s not Friday, so technically I should not be ranting, but having just received a 3rd sales call today, on a number that is supposed to be “unlisted” and on the “do-not call” lists, I am feeling a little IRATE!! The last call went something like this: Caller: Hello, is that Karen? Me: […]READ MORE
Yes, I eat marmalade with my sausages, it’s an odd but quite tasty habit I have. I blame it on eating boarding school food during my childhood! 😉READ MORE
I think? Or at least that is what my converter thingo on my BlackBerry told me last night, as I rather foolishly signed myself up for a 10km river run, in Richmond, in September of this year. I will be raising money for Myeloma UK, which is the charity I am fundraising for on my […]READ MORE
Today is the 2nd of February I have done 31 days of no Facebook. I have had LSH update me with news, so he is filling me in on the gossip and any exciting news. You know, weddings, babies, pregnancies, engagements, birthday’s and all that, and he has mentioned some funny status updates etc, but apart from my […]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 find […]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.
