It’s been a strange few months of house-bound-ness for Mole, Hedgehog and Beaver. 

It started of course back in February with the first news of the virus in China, watching it’s swift spread across Asia, appearing in Europe, and finally, Britain. 

Almost as swiftly as it...

February half term has lately been spent with Granny Purple Hair in darkest Wales. But this time, because of being in a play the following week and being up to my ears in rehearsals, we’re obliged to stay put.

We therefore compromised with a short trip to Norfolk to sta...

Beaver is now one, her birthday was spent walking round the turrets of Warwick Castle, with her in the sling having a ride with a view. It gave my legs the ultimate workout, lugging a 10 kilo baby up and down all those steps.   

She’s changing at an alarming rate....

Mole’s questions of late are getting more weird and wonderful…

“What are stars made of?” cue a quick youtube video courtesy of Brian Cox.

“What is water made of?” That’s easy, hydrogen and oxygen.

“Why is the sea salty?” Ummmmmmm.

“What are our bodies made of?” Ummm, carbo...

A couple of years ago Mr M&H and I had the ‘musical instrument’ conversation.

That is, at what age is best for them to start playing an instrument?. Working in music, Mr M&H is naturally very keen to foster a love of music in Mole and Hedgehog, and I learned my share at...

Last month Mole turned six. She is rapidly becoming a proper school girl, with bunches and unicorn clips in her hair, a mounting pile of stuff she has to bring into school with her, and a nonchalant air at the school gates when I collect her.

“How was school today my lo...

This Summer we took Mole, Hedgehog and Beaver abroad for this first time in about five years. Mole has been abroad only once before, to Mallorca when she was about 10 months old, where she sweated a lot, and breastfed the whole time on the plane which was the only way...

It is time to speak of Beaver.

Now around five months old, she is like a squidgy ball of chubby deliciousness, with smiley eyes and a dribbly mouth. 

She’s moved through the various stages of sleepy new born fragileness, the relentless cluster feeder, the curved ball in...

Mole’s perception of time is a constant source of fascination for me. To say “five minutes” or “two months” or “three years” is meaningless to her. To say “The cake will be ready when the long hand reaches the twelve” is a bit more meaningful, but the best measure of t...

While waiting for the new baby to arrive over the festive holidays, and generally sitting on the sofa with my space hopper tummy, one of my jobs was making our annual photo book album, and looking back on all our pictures from 2018.

I’m always struck with how different...
