Where I talk crafts and Greek Tragedy

Maybe it was sheer bravado, maybe it was the fact that I collaborated with a fellow blogger last week whose blog is all about DIY and Pinterest inspiration, but when 36 Year Old had to go away for one day on the weekend I was about to blow 3 Year Old’s mind with a series of well-intentioned yet poorly executed crafts, a house specialty.

I am not a crafty person. In fact, I think I am magnificently bad at crafts. It probably…

Pat

Hashtag amazeballs!
I, little old me, of blogging obscurity, have just met Postman Pat! The actual, gen-u-ine, real deal, Royal Mail delivering funster himself! 
And I am happy to report he didn't disappoint.
In fact, he completely smashed it.

Ridiculous

I know how annoying this is going to be. I know I am going to disappoint you. I know this isn't what you come here for, and believe me when I say, I really don't want to be that woman. So you'll just have to forgive me. Or else put it in your pipe and smoke it; because in this instance it is totally, completely unavoidable.

So here it comes.

Resting

When I sleep I wind myself into the tightest, most contorted, duvet encased mess of dislocated limbs and torn out hair that each morning I am forced to spend forty five minutes digging about in the covers in order to track down my left foot, right thumb or septum - which will, inevitably, amid all my stressed out night time writhing, have worked its way inside the duvet cover and nestled itself near someone's bum, so, upon clipping it back to my face and rushing out to work, means that…

Once Upon A Time...

Once upon a time there was a Mummy, a Daddy, and a 14 month old little girl with a budding vocabulary and stubborn streak that started out cute but is becoming a bit of a nuisance.

One afternoon this Mummy and Daddy sat playing with their very focused little girl. They began by having a make believe tea party together, which the little girl liked to do very much. Everybody poured pretend tea and ate pretend cake and chatted with the other invited guests who included a teddy, a single…

Book Review: Serial Date, by D.V. Berkom

Serial Date was a surprisingly entertaining read filled with witty writing and dark humor. 

In an unexpected turn of fate, former assassin Leine Basso is offered a job working security in Los Angeles at a gigantic hit reality show called  Serial Date–where beautiful young women get to date ex-cons posing as serial killers. Though L.A.brings her bad memories, Leine…

Parents Evening

Within it sat photos of Boo looking cute (tell me something I don't know), documents about activities planned for her (yeah, yeah, yeah), post-it notes observing The Poop at play (big wow) and work samples (yadda, yadda, yadda).

Where are the assessments?

Where do I find out that she is a genius? A prodigy? An infant mastermind? A veritable whizz kid? A shiningly gifted example of intellectual brilliance, destined only for glory, excellence and superiority?…

Save Our Soles

My insatiable penchant for quality children's footwear knows no bounds. It cares not for pay day, savings or our desire to eat for the rest of the month. It just presses ahead, snatching at the nearest available overdraft, credit card or property re-mortgage in order to purchase every perfectly fitting 3.5G mule in the land. I am utterly powerless to control it. And if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

Torment

Not in our house. Because in our house, we don't celebrate the little triumphs. There are no pats on the back or celebratory high fives. In our house, success is an opportunity to bully. To tease. To tempt. To harass, badger, provoke, goad, bait and bother. Achievement sign posts the opportunity to immediately focus on the next thing I can't do. Because now I can walk; I have to walk further. I have to manage one more step than last time; one more stride than before; one more pace…

Shoe In The Road

A single glove in the road - easily explained. A pair of shoes - sure, there could be reasons.
But a solitary brogue? On a dual carriage-way? Or, on occasion, on A MOTORWAY?
Nah. I don't get it.

Art Attack

Last Monday we turned up, berets, palettes and hard faces at the ready, and managed to shove our way through the vision-less, cack handed, toddling bunch of artistic dead beats milling around the nursery door.

The Holiday

On this holiday, I always knew the time. It was lunch time, or suncream time or flick sand in my face time. It was supper time or bath time or drink a mouthful of sea water time. It was be sick on your new holiday dress time or eat shells time or learn not only to walk but ACTUALLY RUN while on the edge of a cliff time.

Only when I got home and discovered it had been national 'Give Your Mum A Heart Attack Week' did everything fall into place. The week I booked a…

Beach

Sand is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. But you know this. In fact, so all consuming is my fascination with this sedimentary sensation, Mum and Dad threw me on a cramped, stuffy, budget airline flight for four and a half hours to indulge my gritty interest further. And while their purse strings didn't stretch to transport suitable for those in possession of limbs, their valiant endeavours resulted in me spending a whole week on a 'beach'.…

Halloween is NOT a Religious Holiday

Halloween is probably my favorite holiday. Each year as it approaches, I find myself getting more excited, happy and more creative as Halloween crafts and costume ideas come to mind.

I also find myself getting more annoyed by people who don't understand the holiday. The topic has come up several times on different mom forums where I am a member. Over and over again I read...

"We don't celebrate Halloween because it's against our religious beliefs." or

"We don't want to…

Religion is Like Ice Cream, and Answers to Other Tough Questions Kids Ask

When you become a parent, you think you know what you are getting into. Sure, there's the late night feedings, the sleeplessness, the scrapes and bruises to kiss and bandage, the endless hugs to be given. You know about all of these things.



You don't think about all of the questions you will be asked. Not by family members, not by fellow moms... by your kids. And it starts pretty much the moment they begin talking.



Over the years, I've managed to dodge some pretty…

In which the pig moved

This weekend was beautiful, weather-wise that is, and probably one of the last “pool” weekends of the year.  So Kevin and I were trying to enjoy it and we were floating in the pool and admiring our house.  Things have been pretty chaotic this summer because Kevin has been working his ass off and of course, Keely has been at home.

 

Theoretically, we are in the “empty nester” stage and I’m sure I’d be quite depressed about it and I probably will, if Keely leaves.   But we were…
