26th February 2013

I grew up hearing the story of the night my mum nearly threw my two month old brother out of the bedroom window after a day of non-stop crying.  We both know that she didn’t really nearly do it but the memory of that long day and fractious night is as fresh as if it were yesterday, despite it being over forty years ago. My own children aren’t babies or even toddlers anymore but being at home with children, especially when they’re young, is hard work and there are just some days that never seem to end...

Once upon a time it was National Storytelling Week

2/3/2014 6:45 PM

3rd February 2014

Everyone knows someone who is great at telling stories. Maybe it’s Granddad who can keep the family entertained for hours at a time or your best friend who can turn a random event into a rip-roaring story that has you in fits of laughter. But how often do we think of ourselves as storytellers, even though something we do every day?

Parenting - 1970's style!

9/6/2012 7:58 AM

6th September 2012

My children will never know the pleasures (and freedoms) of my own 1970’s childhood, and after having just lived through a six week summer holiday, I’m beginning to realise that the 1970’s weren’t a bad time to be a parent either...

Five things I bought for my newborn (and then never used)

5/15/2012 8:09 AM

15th May 2012

The first time I was pregnant I just couldn't wait to get down to Mothercare to stock up on all the things my precious new born would surely need; Moses basket, cot, travel cot, baby seat, car seat, play mat, changing mat, changing bag, high chair, pushchair, bouncy chair, pram, and if you're a parent you'll know that this is just the start. But whilst some of this stuff is clearly useful (if not fairly important) it makes me shudder to think how many things I bought that I really didn't need.
