This week my rant is aimed at people on social media, who actively go around, looking at other peoples blog posts, pages on Facebook, Facebook profiles (if they are not set to private) Instagram accounts, and Twitter, to offer unsolicted advice, usually parenting advice. (photo source and a good blog post from Babble about unsolicited […]READ MORE
I realised recently, that our inbox had 7000 mails in it (not including stuff I had saved into folders, for work, photos etc) and that I have 5 Twitter accounts, 5 Facebook pages, 6 e-mail addreses, 2 G+ accounts, 2 Instagram accounts, 3 blogs as well as my personal Facebook profile, and being subscribed to […]READ MORE
I took a “day” (well, from when the children were at school and nursery) off yesterday. I dropped them off, watched Big Girl’s performance at her Christmas concert, then I went into town, had a coffee and cake, all by myself and then pottered round the shops, came home, had a small nap, […]READ MORE
Apologies for the picture of my nose there. I don’t really do “selfies” as they are known, and had no make up on, and didn’t want a photo taken. When I am all healed and am able to put in the nose stud I plan to buy to wear all the time (this one is […]READ MORE

Our week in photo’s, mostly from Instagram, and we link up with Make Do and Push, for her lovely weekly linky. This week, we have had some bad bits and some good bits, and we were quite glad to get to the weekend. Unfortunately, Big Girl was poorly again, and not only did she have […]READ MORE
So, Small Boy got hold of my purse yesterday, and helpfully (ahem) decided to empty it out, and count all the coins and play with my bank cards. I then caught Layla having a little nose about… I am sure there is something to be said for this photo, I think she has her eye […]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 […]READ MORE
I cannot, for the life of me, make good meringues. I am very envious of those who seem to make them effortlessly, and with what seems like great skill. I have found a source though, of the most marvellous kind. You guessed it, Whole Foods, of course LSH is now calling it my “mother-ship”. The […]READ MORE
OK, so I know that e-mail has been around for years, and is used commonly, and it’s not really that exciting, any more, but it was exciting this week, for Big Girl, when she got her first ever e-mail addressed to her, from Granddad, in warmer climbs, on the other side of the world.
