So we went shopping yesterday, and I found myself looking at Christmas decorations and ornaments. It’s only November, please send help. I happened to snap the other members of the Mad Cats Household admiring a furry display of polar bears and other critters. I reckon it is Sat Cap worthy! Then mosey on over to […]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. […]READ MORE
This! I was very excited that a Whole Foods store opened in Richmond, and have been really keen to go and visit, but just haven’t been able to make it yet, with being busy, then struck down by flu. Small Boy and I finally got to drop in there yesterday, and it is my idea […]READ MORE
When I was contacted by the lovely people from Spink, and asked if I wanted to review a bottle of Dettol Hand soap, with E45, I was quite keen to accept. I don’t generally use antibacterial sprays and soaps, unless I am cleaning up after an illness, but I do make exception for in the kitchen, because […]READ MORE
This is an old photo, taken in Thailand. I was teasing my Dad that he was sidelining as a snake charmer, instead of his real job (although, one could argue that there is probably a lot of snake charming and handling of difficult people needed in the job he actually did, I am sure he would […]READ MORE
This week, I have an eight legged creature in my sights. In fact, it would seem, according to the media, we should all have this particular one in our sights, and we should all be freaking out, running screaming and terrified… It would seem that the False Widow Spider, has suddenly gained media notoriety. They […]READ MORE
Yes, that is a slightly blurry (sorry, I had to snap it very fast, Small Boy was NOT in a cooperative mood) photo of LSH and his feet. I am totally fascinated by the fact that they have exactly the same feet, they are the same shape, their toes are the same, they even curl […]READ MORE
Last night, Big Girl was enrolled in a local Brownie pack, that I volunteer at. I have been helping there, with the exception of a break when I had each of the children for nearly 8 years. She has loved coming with me, and is very excited about going to her first camp in January too […]READ MORE
So, having nursed the children and LSH through this really nasty flu bug, I of course succumbed this week. As Mummy’s don’t tend to get sick days (or feel they are able to take them – trying to rest with small children in tow, is that possible?) I have tried to potter on as much […]READ MORE

Welcome to Cats, Kids, Chaos. We started over 9 years ago, originally as The Mad House of Cats & Babies, in a blur of sleep deprivation. We share family life as we live and see it, and try to keep it real. I write about food allergies, homeschooling, parenting a teenager, product reviews and everything in between. The odd cat post may feauture too. Welcome to the chaos, grab a cup of coffee and join us!
