Saturday is Caption Day!

Out on a little scooter ride (a favourite right now).  No matter what I did, I couldn’t get them to look at the camera – even with the promise of chocolate coins (also a favourite).  Something seemed to be distracting them… Can you caption this picture?

Then pop over to Mammasaurus to see some more fab photos!

No regrets

I used to be an actress many moons ago (or at least that’s what it feels like). I should really add ‘struggling’ in front of that but it’s such a bizarre title.  I wasn’t really struggling. I went to many auditions and got a fair few jobs, some great, some average, some paid extremely well, some not at all but I loved it all the same.  So I wouldn’t say I was struggling, more like a ‘not-as-successful-as-I-would-have-liked-actress’ but that’s a bit of a mouthful.

The other day, someone asked me what I did before having babies and whether I was ‘going back to work’.  This question always gets me a little riled for some reason.  What I do as a Mum is work.  I’m not on holiday, lounging on the sofa watching day-time TV,  I’m working 24 hours 7 days a week.  I’m happy and very proud of what I do, even though it’s exhausting and relentless at times.

Blame it on the Weatherman

I know there must be some sort of higher weather-power looking down on us and laughing while commanding the heavens to open for a full week straight.  During half term. It’s supposedly called the Summer Term, which in theory, means it’s supposed to be decent weather. We don’t ask for miracles, just a little sun and maybe to leave the wellies out back for a few months? But we all know it doesn’t work like that. Continue reading

Saturday is Caption Day

With the first sign of sun and warmth in what felt like years, we were out in the garden in a shot.  We have a climbing frame at the back with a great wavy slide and the kids love turning it into a circuit.  Climb, slide, up the ladder, climb, slide, up the ladder – they could go for hours. The boys being boys, thought it would be great fun to push each other down the slide. Balancing the camera and ready to catch a wayward child I snapped the shot below – can you caption it?

Then head over to Mammasaurus to see what others have caught on camera this week!

Juice it up!


Since having the twins my eating habits have been a little off (to put it mildly). And that was almost three years ago. Yeah, not great.  As I get older, I am starting to think that I really should pay a little more attention to myself every so often.  Meals on the go and the serious lack of exercise (or time for it) has left me feeling a little sluggish – an increased caffeine intake probably doesn’t help matters, either. A little late for a New Year healthy eating resolution but better late than never, right? Continue reading

Park and Noodles

Richmond Park 1Hello second May Bank Holiday weekend.  They’re a bit like buses, aren’t they? Suddenly they all come along at once and you’ve got to get your entertaining skates on.

This weekend someone, somewhere was smiling down on us. The sun shone, the temperature rose and parents everywhere breathed a sigh of relief: entertaining these little fireballs is a lot easier when the weather’s good. Continue reading

Saturday is a Dolly Caption Day

Yes, Miss S is a ‘Girly Girl’.  She loves babies, buggies and tutu’s but she can also swashbuckle like the best of the boys when she’s ready.  Actually she is often found pushing her ladened down doll pram while stylin’ an eye patch and sword (not real of course). But baby dolls are the thing right now.  Big, small, pink, blue, she loves them all and must be surrounded by her adoring offspring at all times. Here she is hanging with her crew.  Can you caption this photo of Miss S and the ‘kids’?
