It’s that time of year again when thoughts turn to summer holidays. This year we are doing Denmark with a 2 and 3 year old. Why Denmark? Well if there’s one thing I’ve learned about children it’s that they love a bit of classic mid century Scandinavian design. My son cannot get enough of the […]
A short post about someone I really liked but never met.
No. Under no circumstances should anyone ever take a toddler to a festival. Look what happened to Chris Martin - 10 years he had to put up with all that macrobiotic shit. Any more questions? OK then. As you were. But hang on I’m still thinking of taking a toddler to a festival…. OK let me […]
Every now and again I like to look through my spam folder and marvel at the wonderful comments Akismet has cruelly stopped the world from reading. I was sad to discover that spammers have improved their language since my last spam roundup. But there have been even more worrying developments. This is from Realestatefmx hello, […]

Before I had children I used to go to the hairdressers. This was known as ‘getting a haircut’. Now I am a parent I still go to the hairdressers but this is considered ‘me’ time. It’s essentially the same thing but now the act of hair shortening is supposed to be some sort of treat. Well I’m sorry but catching a train […]
Last year I drunkenly signed myself up for martial arts classes. I spent all of 2013 getting the shit kicked out of me every Tuesday evening. And I loved it. So I decided that making rash decisions with little or no thought to my personal safety was the way forward. This year I volunteered to […]
Babies are like fireworks: noisy, dangerously explosive and upsetting to cats and dogs. Just like fireworks babies are best enjoyed from a safe distance and Facebook is the perfect way to share any baby news with your nearest and dearest people you once sat next to at a wedding.
