Last weekend the kids let me choose the ‘family film night’ movie. When I pressed play on The Truman Show there was a lot of whingeing. Why weren’t we watching Happy Gilmore!? (Again) I thought they were old enough to watch this classic... and there’s only so much Adam Sandler a girl can stomach. Well; … Continue reading Truman Show Truths
Usually when something’s bugging me I find that if I splurge it all out on the virtual page, it helps me get out of my stuck-spot and move on. My covid-mask post the other day was a prime example. When I found out lots of you felt the same and I wasn’t a selfish social … Continue reading Just for the record.
I sat down today to write a lockdown blog. It was going to be something ranty and ravey about why the bastarding-hell all our kids aren’t back in school yet... but then my Dad rang me when I was mid flow. All of a sudden I didn’t feel so angsty. And in fact now,this blog … Continue reading A Father’s Day Thank You

All these people doing Veganuary and Dry January astound me... are they actively trying to make themselves more miserable in the most miserable (not to mention skint) month of … Continue reading Things to worry about at 4am while your husband snores.
Stick a fork in me Summer Holidays 2019, cos I am well and truly done. Now that I am recovering from the shock (some would rightly diagnose it as PTSD) of the school holidays; I thought I would share a short week-by-week diary of all the joyous moments I have spent with my wonderful offspring … Continue reading After The Boys of Summer Have Gone…

Kids get up early. Like stupidly early. They have zero respect for hangovers, period pain or general life-related exhaustion. Kids … Continue reading Having kids… why do we bother?
My friend’s lovely Mother recently sent me an article entitled; ‘Is three the most stressful amount of children you can have?’ Hmm... interesting; I thought. I know; I’ll gather as much data as I can on this subject, research lots of studies and articles and before I read a single one I shall conclude: YES … Continue reading Is three the most ridiculous amount of children to have?
Ahhh Christmas. The time of peace and goodwill to all men (and women. And the bloody kids too I suppose). The ‘goodwill’ bit really is one of my favourite things about the festive season. Strangers saying “Merry Christmas” when you pass them on the street on Christmas Eve, popping in for a sherry with your … Continue reading How to be a parent at Christmas (and not completely lose your shit)
So here you are; desperately counting down the days and hours until your first baby decides it’s time to make an entrance... I know you’re excited. But Sarah there are a few things you need to know, and nobody else is going to have the balls to break some of this to you so it’s … Continue reading A letter to the girl I used to be.
My name is Sarah, and I like my own kids. There; I’ve said it. Weight off my shoulders that is! Now you might be thinking that admission is not much of a revelation. But for someone whose calling-card is to rant and swear about how her kids have got her absolutely frigging demented; admitting that … Continue reading Confessions of a Mam-in-progress
