Otter 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. H...

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...

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...

Well, it’s a few more weeks until bambino #3 makes an appearance, and with my sudden surge of energy over the past few days, I’m taking the chance to write another blog before I’m totally swamped in milk, sick and pooh.

The first term of Mole’s new school and Hedgehog’s...

Mole turned five last month, and because it coincided with her starting school, we decided to do a home spun garden party for her, with some of her classmates. Note, just SOME of her classmates. I thought 10 would be a good number. But how do you select 10 children out...

March 20, 2018

The up and down weather we’ve been having lately is making the time I spend with Mole and Hedgehog a constant dilemma as to whether we stay in all day, or chance a walk to the swings when the snow / wind / rain parts for a minute to reveal some sun rays. Today for exam...

It’s amazing how skilled they are at not going to bed isn’t it?.

Last night for instance, when Hedgehog practically fell face down into my lap by six o’clock because she could not hold herself up anymore, or keep her little eyes open. I whisper to Mr M&H “I think we’ll...

Boys will be boys and girls will be girls, right?.

It reminds me of that Blur song: “Girls who are boys, who like boys to be girls, who do boys like they're girls, who do girls like they're boys”. I get a consensus from a lot of people that it doesn’t matter how equally...

Mole and Hedgehog are not going to sleep tonight. They are up and down the stairs like a pair of yoyos. This happens about 3 nights out of 7, and it is exhausting. It is true that they slept in the car at the worst possible time of day, aka 5pm, but then, it is not alw...
