Blogging – Where I’m Going Wrong.

Since this month’s Tots100 ranks were updated, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my blog. There are a lot of people out there who say “I blog for myself, not anybody else” and I agree that there is an element of personal space about it, which is great. But I also think that at least half of the people who say they’re doing it are bare-faced liars. I blog because I like to …

Pies: Running the Weight Loss Gauntlet

Yesterday, I posted this tweet: Now, whilst I may have dealt with it in my usual glib, slightly self-deprecating way, the essence of what I was saying was true. I’ve lost weight by avoiding baked goods. You see, I work in an office that’s just off the high street and within a 2 minute walk of my desk there’s a Greggs, an M&S, a Subway, a Tesco, a fish and chip shop…you get my point, …

We’ve got a media server set up so that anything that’s on our PC and external hard drive can be watched wirelessly through our PS3 on the big TV in …

What Will I Be When I Grow Up?

When I was a kid, I could never make my mind up about what I wanted to be when I grew up. The thought of going to University scared the crap out of me because it meant that I’d have to make a decision and stick to it. In fact, I went to a grammar school which is currently rated at 8th in the entire UK for results and the pressure was on from an …

World Book Day, the ‘Mum’s the Word’ Way.

Today is World Book Day. If you have children of primary school age, you probably already know this as you’ll either have needle-pricked fingers from frantically sewing a costume, or a dented Visa from giving in and buying a damned costume! Here in the Mum’s the Word house, we’re a true family of readers, Sausage has been read to since she was in the womb and Husband and I are never far from our Kindles …
