Please don’t touch me. Nursing aversion Sucks.

Aversion is a good word. In fact, repulsion is an even better word. I am repulsed by breastfeeding.

From one Mama to anotherĀ 

Social media can be a glorious thing.  A few days ago (OK, maybe 2 weeks) a tweet popped up on my Twitter TL from a mama I have been following and sporadically interacting with for a few months.  Jules, like myself, is a mum, a blogger and reaching out to other mamas when she feels...

Cooking up a storm (disaster!)Ā 

I'm not a proud baker. Not in the slightest. I think cakes and bakes have always been a matter of luck rather than charm or talent (and a hefty dose of "cheating") Yes, Dr Oetker, and Betty Crocker I'm looking at you!  It's probably a good thing.

What’s the time Rory Wolf?

The teenager can't tell the time.  At all. She has absolutely no clue. Nothing. No concept of seconds, minutes or hours, no grasp of quarter past, quarter to, half past, five past, twenty past. Nothing. She doesn't understand any of it. She can't tell you how long an hour and a half is or 3... Continue Reading →
