This morning I brought Smallest to the swimming pool for her weekly swimming lesson. It runs alongside a women’s only swimming session, populated mainly by women of a certain age. This leads to an interesting mix in the changing room, and this morning we just couldn’t seem to get out of the way of an […]
If you've enjoyed reading this year, and have a few moments to spare, I'd love if you could click here or on the MADs badge over in the sidebar and nominate me. The family fun category would be lovely, though I'd be very happy with any nominations at all, and I'm especially grateful to whoever nominated me for blog of the year :) Thank you.
No, not inconceivable. (Though go to the top of the class for recognising the Princess Bride quote. Bonus point if you know which character says it ) In this case, the word is Average.

Which is all well and good for him, but a bit wearing for me, and not brilliant for the rest […]
I have run 1.54 milies in 14mins 50 secs. I have had breakfast and lunch, as has the baby. And she’s had two feeds. I’ve changed a nappy, showered (with the baby) and dressed us both. I’ve done washing and hung it out, and brought dry washing in. I’ve written eleventybillion blog posts in my […]
and half a braincell working (so know how you feel Deb!) Soa is currently on her big sister’s knee, or trying to crawl up her shoulder. She appears to like crawling up ppl’s shoulders. She is a very strong willed baby, who likes to feed frequently, but for some reason, doesn’t open her mouth properly […]
