If you ask any parent their idea of fun, It would most likely NOT be an icy school run. I peered through the window at seven this morning, The Arctic had landed. Without prior warning. The car was a snowball. The road looked like glass. The path had transformed to a treacherous pass. Not a… Continue reading A School Run On Ice.
My mum has a brand new obsession of late. With piling some green nonsense onto my plate. She must be confused or not right in the head? As it’s none of the three food-groups: cheese, jam or bread?

A parenting parody based on Julia Donaldson’s brilliant children’s book Day Monkey Night Monkey. The light shone bright at the playgroup, ‘I’m Right’ Mummy sat sipping tea. She tutted and growled as ‘My Way’ Mummy scowled, And thought ‘She should do it like me!’ My Way Mummy tried not to notice, That I’m Right Mummy… Continue reading ‘I’m Right’ Mummy, ‘My Way’ Mummy. A Parody.
Last week all of the magic of Disney came to Yorkshire. Disney on Ice brought their 2017 spectacular show “A Passport to Adventure” to Sheffield Fly DSA Arena, and we were lucky enough to be invited!

1) Thou shalt not spill. Or if thou shalt spill thou shalt make sure thou is not anywhere that there is carpet. (Preferably in the garden.) 2) Thou shalt not steal. Not even in those shops where all the good stuff is lined up right next to the tills and at your perfect grabbing… Continue reading The Ten Commandments – According to Mummy.
When You Wish Upon A Star… I spent many of my pre-mummy years living in Sheffield.
