Day two of the school holidays Mr Eeh Bah phones home to check we are all still alive. Him: Hi Are you OK? You said in your email you were…. cleaning. Me: Yes darling I’m fine. I was cleaning. Him: Are you drunk already? It’s only 2pm. Me: Darling I’m not drunk I’m sat outside […]
Dear Tescoses, I am writing to inform you of an issue with a packet of bagels I purchased from one of your stores. Skipping downstairs one crisp October morning after snuggles in bed with my two delightful children, my 2 year old son began demanding bagels by charmingly stamping his feet and shouting ‘I want […]
While Heston Blumenthal fannys about trying to make a bacon flavoured stegosaurus out of yogurt and breadsticks the rest of us have more basic food based challenges. Like feeding toddlers – or even harder – getting my Dad to eat a vegetarian dish without him making a joke about it lacking a bit of sausage. ( […]
I’ve been wanting to do a recipe on the blog for ages. But I wanted it to be something I actually made and ate with the children – y’know so I could show you all how easy it is to cook nice things and supervise toddlers. Really, I thought, how hard can it be? Let me tell you […]

When you take small children out to eat you have exactly however long it takes to order and eat one course minus 7 minutes before it all goes horribly wrong.
It makes no difference how quickly the food arrives the last 7 minutes of your meal will be spent shovelling hot food into your mouth whilst one of you jiggles the baby or takes a toddler for a walk around the block.
One course? But what about starters and puddings?
Oh sorry was that a genuine question?
Before I start I should make it clear I like CBeebies. It is the closest thing to live in childcare I have. However there is an inherent problem with children’s television, even Game Of Thrones would lose its shine for me if had to watch the same episode again and again and again. Actually […]
Let me get straight to the point I’m lazy, I breastfed because it was easier than faffing about with bottles, sterilizing and timing feeds. When I heard about a weaning process which involved throwing sticks of food at a baby I knew immediately this was the one for me. Surely though there must be more […]
