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...

The days are definitely getting Autumnal.

To be honest it’s a relief after the furnace like Summer we had. The blackberries are out, so Mole, Hedgehog and I have done a couple of hedge picking trips, which nicely whiled away some afternoons. Hedgehog sat in the buggy li...

It’s been a tent themed Summer this year, with four camping trips made in as many months, (from May to August). Inspired by a dream of ‘getting back to nature’ and the idea of cheap and easy trips away, I set out to conduct a sort of camping experiment over the Summer,...

So we’ve returned from our jaunt around South Wales, with much mud, rain, chocolate, sand and farm animals involved. I’ve had a lot of fun, been cold and wet sometimes, been cosy with wine at other times, and learned a few things in the process, such as how useful DVD’...

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...

For the past week we’ve had chickens living with us, or chicks to be more accurate.

They are about 10 days old now, and beginning to lose their yellow fluff already, with their Sussex white and black wings showing through. They spar at each other, but it looks like play...

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...

It is mid-afternoon. We are driving slowly around Woburn Safari Park, Mole and Hedgehog are on the back seat, I am watching them in the rear view mirror.

Mole: “Mummy, when will you die?”

Me: “Ummm, not for ages”

Mole: “NO! but mummy WHEN will you DIE?”

Me: “I don’t know l...

It’s been a sick house at Mole and Hedgehog Associates this week. I blame the Autumn cold weather.

First Mole got the streaming nose, then Hedgehog followed. Mole specialises in doing noisy and dramatic sniffs before wiping her nose on her sleeve. Hedgehog prefers the p...

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...
