Goodbye 2010. Don’t Let the Door Hit You on the Arse on the Way Out.

Each morning, Sausage and I get up, go through the usual morning ablutions, make breakfast and then we sit together and eat, whilst she watches CBeebies and I check my Facebook/Twitter/Gmail/blog stats (yes, I’m a compulsive stat checker. Judge if you want, I don’t care!). This morning I have noticed a running theme amongst my Facebook friends’ status updates and the general consensus is that 2010 was a shitty year for most people. I was …

Reflection.

I’ve not posted here for a while, for a few reasons. Firstly, I’ve been extremely busy over the holiday period and I wanted to make it all about Sausage, so my days have been spent baking, making homemade decorations and playing with the MOUNTAIN of toys she received over christmas. Secondly, I felt a bit tongue-tied. I had some ideas of what I would like to write about, but on several occasions, sat at my …

Fist fight.

A few weeks ago, one of my fellow Mummy bloggers recommended Mama Kat’s Losin’ It to me, and I started reading, and throughly enjoying it. I was also intrigued by her weekly Writers Workshop, where she issues a list of prompts to inspire other bloggers. One of this weeks prompts was ‘a fist fight’ and with it I embarked upon my first foray into short fiction. So here is my effort, please be very gentle …

Mum’s the Word gets crafty.

I’ve had a couple of requests from people asking how I made my homemade snowflake decorations, so I thought I’d do a step-by-step to show you all how! Before you get started, you’ll need: 6 pieces of paper, I used white, but you could use any colour, or even something a bit sparkly. It also looks good if you use paper which is one colour on one side and another colour on the other. Also, …

For shame.

You know how there are those professions which discerning, self-respecting people would never go near? You know the ones, traffic wardens, ambulance chasers, defence lawyers who work for paedophiles, Conservative politicians…well I’d like to take this opportunity to formally add one to the list. Todays entry is Marketing Executive, specifically those who work for toy companies. As I’ve mentioned before, we let Sausage watch telly, and as much as Husband and I favour CBeebies for …

The Truth About Me.

I am absolutely shit at housework. No, scratch that, it’s not the housework I’m bad it, any idiot can work a Hoover. It’s the inclination I lack. And the fact that it all needs doing over and over and over again is what gets me. No sooner have I got the house tidy, someone changes their clothes or wants a meal, or some other inconsiderate thing and it all starts again. I watch way too …

The Tree has Arrived.

The box looks worryingly skinny…are we going to have an anorexic tree?! UPDATE Have now assembled the tree…it’s slim, but by no means underweight! Not bad for £9.99 from Amazon! Now we just need some decorations! Sausage and I are going to be making some salt dough decs once I can get into town and find some festive cookie cutter shapes (can you believe that Waitrose want £8 for one cutter?!). Does anyone have any …

God Bless the Internet; a Semi Retraction

If you’ve read my blog before, you may have seen this, where I slammed the internet for being full of weirdos and a generally dodgy place to be sometimes. And I still maintain that, if used in the wrong way, the internet can be dangerous, especially to those who are still beautifully innocent and unencumbered with the shittier aspects of humanity. But this past couple of weeks, I have gained a little bit of context …

Guest Blogger: Elle from This is Mommyhood

They say there’s no such thing as a selfless good deed. Today, I stepped in to help out my new friend, Elle, at This is Mommyhood, but in the bargain I managed to wangle an awesome guest post from her, which may seem cruel in her current sickly state, but as it turns out she’s just as awesome when she’s ill! So, without further ado, I hand my blog over to Elle and hope to …
