Sideline parent selfie

I spend every Saturday and every Sunday morning outside. Standing still. In wind and rain, chilled to the bone and soaked to the skin. Football and rugby. I’m there to support my boys and I love it. But it’s really, really flipping cold. Even in April it’s be cold. The rugby ground has its own microclimate which is at least five degrees lower than the rest of the world. You drive home and you look at the temperature...

A Mummy meme

Thanks to the lovely Cathie from Wicked World of Lucas (a very funny blog – go and have a read if you never have, I can highly recommend it!) for tagging me to answer some questions.

I’m a blogger, get me out of here!

I’m a Celebrity is back on our screens (in fact it’s nearly over!) and I for one am loving it. So are my sons. It’s nice to sit and watch telly with them. Anyway, Kate from Kate on Thin Ice thought it would be a good idea to jump on the bandwagon and challenge some bloggers. Luckily I don’t have to eat kangaroo testicle or ostrich anus. Or be locked in a box in the dark with a load of rats. It’s far more...
