Trigger Happy Scissors

Cut my hair. I normally cut my hair but this time I got a bit trigger happy with the scissors.

There was a snip-snip here and a snip-snip there and I thought it looked quite good.

This morning I discovered that one side of my hair curls and the other sticks out in spike.

I now look like a hybrid of Brian May and Iggy Pop!

Illustrated Christmas Story

I'm currently working on an illustrated Christmas story for children. I've set myself the tough target of completing this before December 1st - hmmmm bit ambitious maybe.

This is a sad but uplifting tale of one child's wish that may not come true - reach for a hankie with this one...perhaps.

Here's the little darlings over excited about the prospect of festive delights!

Hope this isn't inapropriate!

Just made this card for my Father-in-Law.

Inside it says 'There'll be no green bottles standing on the wall' !!

When washing up is a good thing!

I actually like washing up at this time of year. My hands are so cold I look forward to plunging them in hot bubbly water just to warm them up!

A good laugh for free

There is a little swearing, a lot of embarrassment and loads of laughter - free on Amazon today...

Nothing New Under the Sun

Irrational Mummy Logic

Husband has just taken the kids out for an afternoon adventure. I had so many plans set out in my head and yet, now I have the chance to do them all I can think is, the house is eerily quiet and I don't know what to do with myself!

You either love it or hate it....

It doesn't take long for a home to become a midden!

My little boy was home from nursery for one day yesterday.

He was poorly with a temperature and spent much of the day in his duvet on the sofa - so why does my house now look like I nursed a herd of frolicking goats?

There are toys in every nook and cranny, so much laundry it's now a danger to health and safety and not one clean dish or fork to be had anywhere. I've just eaten toast off a place matt - don't ask what I used to butter it!

You know you're a parent when...

There's no such thing as a free lunch...

There's no such thing as a free lunch, but there is such a thing as free laughter.

My book about the stress and hilarity of going through the Autumnal seasons with little children, chaotic family life and bizarre friends is free today

Go on, cheer yourself up today!

Weekend mornings

Saturday morning, coffee has been plunged, children fed - I love the weekend! Despite this the place resembles a laundrette after a week with little ones suffering from a tummy upset.
