Welcome to Our Week in Photos. Our way of sharing our week and what we get up to with our family abroad and grandparents who like to keep up with our life and antics. This week has been mixed, lots of fun, lots of sun (IT WAS HOT) and a bit of sadness as we […]READ MORE
*This is a review post. We were kindly sent some Face Paintoos to try* We love face painting in our house. Both my kids love having their faces painted, and practicing on each other, and I do a little bit of face painting for my job, when we work at fairs and events, but sometimes, […]READ MORE
*This is a collaborative post* There can be many times in the year when someone’s birthday, a wedding anniversary, or any other type of celebration comes up. It can be that you are on a tight budget, but because the person is special, you still want to give them a gift. Here are just a […]READ MORE

Project 365. A photo a day, every day of the year. Don’t tell Spotty the Gecko we were admiring a gecko yesterday that wasn’t him… This little chap, a dwarf blue gecko, was about the size of my finger and the most beautiful colour and happy to pose for social media posts. The boy was […]READ MORE
*This is a review post.

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.
