I Made A New Blog!

I made a new blog documenting my attempts to get happier. It's a departure from the style of this blog. Me without the mother side, I suppose you could say. I'm going to have some fun with it. I hope you like it too. The Loser's Guide To Happiness


J4: Happy 4th of July

I would like to wish my American readers a very happy 4th of July. Enjoy your coffee and your freedom and have a wonderful day. It's been a pleasure to meet new friends and I look forward to wishing you all a happy 4th of July for many years to come. Whatever you're doing today... Continue Reading →

Our Easter Holidays

The school Easter holidays are nearly over and as usual I don't know where the time has gone. We went to the park, we went to town for new school shoes (Tom's only half a size smaller than me now!), we went to the cinema to see The Boss Baby, we went to the dental... Continue Reading →

Farts are Funny

Thomas is at that stage of life where farts are funny. Doing a fart is funny, the sound of a fart is funny, the smell is funny, Mum's reaction is funny. He has mastered the art of "hand farting" - that thing where you blow a raspberry into your hand and it sounds like a... Continue Reading →

He’s Back!

My favourite blogger and author is back after a five month break with a new post. If you haven't visited the site, I'd recommend setting aside an hour and settling down with a cup of tea (and possibly some biscuits). Very funny, tender, affirming and occasionally heart breaking, it's quite a read: My Son's Not Rainman.

W24: A Matter of Will

At ten years old, Thomas finally learned to ride a bike yesterday. After trying and failing to teach him when he was younger, we left cycling on the back burner. It was another entry of the list of things he wasn't yet ready to do and, with him being our first and only child  (never... Continue Reading →

W13: His Lordship

"Funny stuff is for kids. And clowns." My son has decided he is the Lord of our neighbourhood today. I have to address him as "Your Lordship". I tried to cuddle him earlier and he informed me that cuddles aren't important. He is being important and he doesn't have time for Funny Stuff. "Funny stuff is... Continue Reading →

W11: A Gloriously Messy Life

This is what drove me crazy and made me laugh and shout and cry with frustration and exhaustion in equal measure. This is what made me more tired than I ever thought I could be before I had a child, constantly picking up toys and clearing mess in one room while Tom was busy getting... Continue Reading →

W10: Housebound (aka Half-Term Happiness)

Next week is the half term holidays: no school. Going by previous form, we will alternate between early starts for Milkshake Morning (for details on how much I enjoy Milkshake Mornings, read my earlier post Farted Awake at Sadness O’Clock: My Christmas Holidays) and decadent lying in until lunchtime while my son watches DVDs and plays...
