This is a blog about family life in the heartland of middle class home counties England written by a thirty-something mother with hippyish tendencies and too many hobbies to do any of them well.
Me – frazzled, self-employed mum of two
The Boy – three year old agent of chaos
The Girl – newborn poppet, smiley as hell but with no clearly discernible personality traits as yet
The Man – old enough to know better smart arse with a heart of gold and a dodgy sense of humour.
The Mater – an angel sent from heaven who flies in with homecooked meals, does more babysitting than is good for her and is just generally a godsend whose name is blessed throughout the family.
Needy Cat – Does what it says on the tin – like a living teddy bear really. Lets The Boy ride him like a pony…
Proper Cat – Acts like a proper cat. Suitably nervous of The Boy and his chums etc
