Is it the Mum’s responsibility to keep the romance alive?

I was asked to pop onto the breakfast show for Heart Wiltshire the other week by the lovely Molly (check out what I said here on her blog) She guessed I might have strong feelings about husbands complaining that they don’t get any attention any more and that the romance has gone out of their marriage! And I do! It’s not […]

How to fit sex into a busy life as a parent?

I’m back to doing what is most popular on my blog: writing about sex!  In particular how to fit sex into a busy life as a parent. I kept a little quiet for a while as I was in Woman’s magazine a few weeks ago, and it was REALLY embellished.  So I kept my head down incase anyone actually read […]

Problem Corner: Lost Myself and Can’t Find My Feet

The Problem I received an email from a Mum a week or so ago that reminded me so much of what many of us feel at times in our lives: I feel like I’ve lost myself and really can’t do anything, be a good mum, work or even decorate our house which we moved in last year. I don’t really think […]

If Your Friend Has Fallen Out With Them, Should You?

So your friends in real life, twitter or Facebook have a falling out.  Should you remain friends with those people?  Or is that disloyal?  What about if they fall out with a whole association or organisation? I’m friends on twitter and Facebook with people that I know have fallen out with other people in the long and distant past.  In […]

Family Gap Year vs Finding The Magic at home

With the big hairy northern one being made redundant, we’ve been talking about taking a year out as a family gap year; maybe 6 months in the states, home for my brothers wedding and 5 months in Australia and New Zealand. Curly headed boy is 6yrs old, and having been to a private school is a bit ahead of our […]

Time for a change: Women bitching about other women: Sally Bercow vs Kirstie Allsopp

So another story about a mother, having a go at another mother, very publicly because obviously the Daily Mail loves that sort of thing.  Sally Bercow decided to slag off Kirstie Allsopp for being out of touch and middle class. So I’m going to have a rant. For a start when are women going to understand that until we start […]

What would happen if Aliens did land next week?

The aliens are coming! Well, not definitely, but did you see that someone analysing the feed from NASA reckons they’ve found a HUGE space ship near Mercury? It could of course be a trick of the light.  But what if it where true? A little part of me got all excited; after all life is a bit tricky for everyone […]

I’m a Blogger Blagger, fancy joining me?

So loads of people have been commenting about whether bloggers in general are blaggers, or whether it’s just the new ones, just mummy bloggers or just a small group or large group of them. Then there was a particular incident where a ‘Real Mum’ (how self-righteous is that title) decided to have a go at a Mum who had missed […]
