Today Emily is guest ranting – you can find her over at Babyrambles normally
I hardly ever visited the doctor’s surgery before I had children. And then I became very familiar with the place as my children picked up strange viruses I’d never heard of such as Slapped Cheek and Hand, Foot [...]
Let me get this absolutely clear – set it out straight for those of you in the back who may not have been playing attention – I am a full time Mum.
Yes I may work BUT I am still a mum even when I’m away from the house.
I don’t suddenly get to [...]
Yes I know part time work has made my life a million times better – I see more of the girls, I get less resentful when I have a week like this one and don’t see them for days in a row and life has a one day reset button. It is a good [...]
Off with their heads!

Tweet This week we have a guest rant from Jenny who writes over at the wonderfully named Cheetahs In My Shoes and is having a good old Friday rant about decisions or rather people not making them. __________________________ This is a frequent conversation in our house and one that annoys the pants off me (although [...]
How come evolution hasn’t kicked in sorted out the fact that no matter how you look at it, the way we humans reproduce is just overly complicated. Surely sometime around the time we started to walk upright some small changes could have been made to how we reproduce?
