  • The senior school tour 5 days ago I took DD to look around a senior school the other day. It was the first time I’ve set foot in a senior school since I was, well, in senior school myself.

He was in my tummy five years ago. ‘Ow, my balls?’ says DS, the picture of innocence. It’s not a word he’s heard at […]
  • Taylor Swift for mums 3 weeks ago DS is an early riser. At first, when he was a baby and used to wake at 5 or 5.30am, I used to comfort myself with the thought that he’d grow out of it; that as soon as he went to nursery / went to school / got older, he’d start to wake at a […]
  • Why we mums are The Cat in the Hat 3 weeks ago Having never really appreciated Dr Seuss’ books as a child, I’ve recently developed a love of his mind-expanding rhymes and anapaestic tetrameter as I explore his books with DS.

A brilliant blog! She feels like a friend who just knows! Sometimes I feel she has a secret camera watching me! It is always so spot on and so well written.

Although I have never been to Dubai, she captures the essence of what it is to be an expat! But what I love best about her blog is her honest and witty humour about parenting! Absolutely bloody brilliant! She delivers everytime!
