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 […]READ MORE
I love taking random photos of my kids, or things I see. I am NOT a photographer, my photos are not artistic, or beautiful, and sometimes they may even be blurry and definitely not professional. I normally put loads of photos on Facebook or Twitter, but because of my 60 day Facebook and Twitter black […]READ MORE
We use coconut oil for lots of things in our house, these are the ten I can think of, off the top of my head, every day uses for it. We buy a jar or two of cold pressed, virgin oil from our local health food shop, and each jar lasts about two months or […]READ MORE
So, I’m giving up Facebook and Twitter for 60 days…. Those of you who know me, know I am a prolific user of Facebook and Twitter, and frankly, I am a bit of a social media addict. I do spend a lot (too much) time on both. I decided, to honour my Mum, and to […]READ MORE
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: 600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,700 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get […]READ MORE
Is almost here… Post Christmas Greetings to you all. I hope you all had a good Christmas? We had a fun Christmas Eve, with friends, and a very nice day with my family. My lovely Dad did the Christmas cooking and hosting, fed us all well, and we all enjoyed our time together. LSH was […]READ MORE
I keep asking myself this question… I feel like Christmas has sneaked up on me this year. I (actually, read we, because LSH has done more than his fair share of shopping, wrapping and Christmas related activities) have been remarkably organised. We’ve got all of our gifts and they’re all wrapped, we’ve had the tree up and […]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.
