Cultural Britain

I like to think that I am quite cultured. My acting background has meant that I seen, read and performed in many plays and I am a big fan of Shakespeare. I am also a big fan of music. I wish I could play lots of instruments! I can play the guitar and have had lessons. I also have a flute, a keyboard and a steal drum. I wish i could play these but in reality I am a ‘jack [click here to read on]

Future-Proofing Your Young Family's "Forever Home"

Back in 2014, the then Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, decided to reduce stamp duty on new homes, slashing the cost of moving for more than 98 percent of the British public.

I had planned to return to teaching when Bob was older.  Then, when she was 7 months old, I started a mummy blog. This was just a hobby and it helped me to make sense of motherhood and [click here to read on]

When The Going Gets Tough, It Might Be The Time To Relax

I have just tried to find a photograph of myself and my husband to accompany this post and I had to go back to 2010, before Bob was born! We have been out occassionally since then but our child free evenings are very few and far between. It has made me realise how important it is to find time for each other and I have asked my parents to come and babysit sometime soon so that we can go out. [click here to read on]

Oversharing And The Unspeakable

Since becoming a parent I have met lots of other mummies. Some have become close friends and others I have chatted to briefly whilst our children played together. I still find it strange how quickly you can bond with people when you have children in common.  You would think that you would stick to pleasantries when you don’t know someone but being a mummy seems to give you a bond. I have been known to swap birth stories with other [click here to read on]
