Popping in to work for a rest…

For most of the week I’m a stay at home mum. Which “apparently” means I just sit on my bum?? But frankly my days are chaotic at best. I honestly pop in to work for a rest. Now just for the record, before I say more, I know 14 hours is hardly a chore. My… Continue reading Popping in to work for a rest…

Sometimes…. I just can’t do it!

I’ve answered to Mum now for more than 3 years, I’ve cherished the good times and learned from the tears.

The SUPERMUMMY Pill…

Mummies don’t get sick at all. We never have a cough. Thank goodness as we wouldn’t get a sniff of a day off. And even if we asked them, our unsympathetic “boss”, with all their best intentions, frankly wouldn’t give a toss.

Once upon a time, I cleaned the house…..

I actually did all my house work today!! “So bloody what?” You’re entitled to say. The fact of the matter though, I’ll have you know, is I had both my toddler and boddler in tow. I’d put off the task for as long as I could. (Perhaps a bit longer than maybe I should?)
