A drug that is now more widely used for rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. Basically it works by “dampening” down the immune system, so my body would […]READ MORE
and escalators, and steps… I’m a freak, I know! I loathe stairs. This intense dislike has been compounded by the fact that both my children have taken a turn to tumble-down our staircase at home (fortunately both were unscathed by the experience, I however was utterly traumatized and can still see them falling down when […]READ MORE
This is Part 1, of my piece on sleep. I’ve broken it into parts, simply because as a whole it would be too long, and also I want to give an idea of what we’ve been through, before I explain in Part 2 about the effects it has had on us, and what sleep issues can do […]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.
