Futile things I say to my girls


1. Night girls remember it’s Saturday tomorrow so you don’t need to get up early! 2. I know you’re watching TV but wouldn’t you like to come and brush your teeth, get ready for bed and have a story? 3. Please don’t drop your food on the floor 4. Please don’t drop the towel on [...]

Saucer Eyes

Mog and the BFG

Tilly is going through that wonderful phase that 4 year olds do, when everything is terribly important and things get said with complete earnestness that results in big wide saucer eyes. It’s utterly charming and him indoors and I have to stop ourselves smiling when she’s trying to make a very important point. Last night [...]


It’s taken me 6 years and a huge amount of self loathing and recrimination but I think I might finally have grasped the art of distraction that parenting experts tell you about. They make it sound so easy. “Child wants to play with the razor blades and prescription drugs? Just distract them with a song. [...]

Random conversations at bedtime

i love you mummy

Every now and then I just want to remember something the girls have said. This is one such time. I cycled up the hill this evening in the freezing cold, with hands like blocks of ice after having left my gloves at home this morning. I was on the later train after too much faffing [...]

Father Christmas Is Watching You!

father christmas and his sleigh

Father Christmas is a very busy chap at this time of year, not only that but he’s supremely blessed with the gift of multiple sight. How else can he watch all the children in the lead up to Christmas? Unfortunately the ONS won’t give me an estimate on the number of children in the UK, [...]

Family Day Out: The Natural History Museum

The Earth Galleries at the Natural History Museum

It’s not often that the whole family gets a whole day together, in fact lately it’s been very rare what with him indoors’ work, birthday parties, ballet rehearsals and all the other things that we call life. So today we decided that we’d do something all together. Rather than the usual suspects; Box Hill, National [...]

The Return

A souk stall

I’ve been lucky enough to have a few days away in Marrakech for a ‘meet in the middle’ with my friend Jonathan who lives in Singapore (I’ve written about our escapades before and indeed he has too), I arrived back late last night. It was everything it was intended to be; lots of laughter, lots [...]

Biking with my Girls

Ever so occasionally I feel like perhaps my plans have been a bit ambitious. Bitten off a bit more than I can chew. Mostly I just get on with it, but sometimes I stretch my ability to multitask. I took the girls to their swimming lesson at about 8am, god awful time really, but then [...]

Lazy Sundays

The conker stash

I think the term ‘Lazy Sunday’ was created by someone who either didn’t have children, or had grown up children. My Sundays are rarely lazy. They normally involve an early start, my children haven’t quite grasped the whole weekend’s are for sleeping in a thing. They really don’t get it. I’m hopeful that sometime in [...]

Their Musical Education

Before I had children music was a very big part of my life; I had two very big influencers as far as my music taste was concerned. My stepfather had an enormous record collection, which moved in when he did and from then on I was educated in the likes of Neil Young, Eric Clapton, [...]
