The #OopsFiles 14 Guest Blogger: Single Mum Speaks

Did I laugh when this landed in my inbox?  Yep.  The whole thing is great and probably the most unusual  submission I’ve received so far.  The #OopsFiles series just gets weirder each week and I mean that in the best possible way!  The erm ‘Danish bit’ really made me laugh, although I realised afterwards that […]

The #OopsFiles 13: Guest Blogger Pink Noam

Welcome back for another edition of the #OopsFiles, the guest blog series that’s earning a reputation as a place where willing bloggers – yes they’re actually WILLING – come to  confess their sins/embarrassing life stories!  Now, two themes have come up a few times since the series began: nakedness and public transport indiscretions.  Blimey.  This […]

5 Reasons Why The Tooth Fairy Never Came

I’m not the bake-sale mum with perfect coiffed hair. I’d eat all the cakes, would rather endure Celine Dion on constant loop than attend football practice and my hair is decidely un-’coiffable’.  However, to go as far as admit that I am in fact the mum who cannot, for the life of her, remember to […]

They Are All Leaving and They’re Taking My Childhood With Them

I sat down to write something the day after beloved and respected British comedian Ronnie Corbett passed away. I had been enjoying the Easter holidays with my kids, having one of those leisurely days where they played, listened to music and we made casual plans to do something in the gorgeous Maltese sunshine.  Then, 24/7 blogger […]


To Surprise or Not Surprise a Woman? The Birthday Gift Dilemma

Buying a woman a birthday gift is –  let me rephrase that – buying a woman a surprise birthday gift isn’t easy. Let’s be honest, men are a bit doomed if they do, doomed if they don’t aren’t they?  I’m not being politically incorrect or exclusionist (or whatever the right word is) not accounting for female […]

My Sunday Photo 17th April 2016

  Okay, so my Sunday photo 17th April (I only took part for the first time in Photalife’s fab linky last Sunday which you can see here!) is this ‘Great Outdoors’ one.  This was in fact, believe it or not, taken in the same round of photos from which My Sunday Photo 10th April came.  Even though this looks […]

I’m Helping Agent Spitback to Pass the Sauce!

Tapping of fork on side of the glass, lowering of microphone stand (#BecauseShortarse and while we’re at it can someone go get me my kids’ step stool?), trumpet fanfare in distance, drumroll, etc aaaaaaaaand clears throat: Ladies and genitalmens (sorry juvenile joke from my university years and a hard one to kick), I am simply spiffingly delighted […]


The #OopsFiles 9: Guest Blogger Pink Pear Bear

Pssssst! Come closer, no a bit closer. Okay, that’s good.  Right, I’m really erm not sure how to say this.  So here goes [deep breath]: IT SEEMS SOME OF MY OOPSFILERS ARE HAVING IMMENSE DIFFICULTY KEEPING THEIR CLOTHES ON.  There. I’ve said it. From the tear-inducing tale by Mess, Stress and Fancy Dress about accidental knicker-flashing to Baby Pink […]


My Sunday Photo 10th April

So this is the first time I’m posting a photo for the #MySundayPhoto series hosted by Photalife! Can’t believe it really, considering how much I snap away on that most advanced complex skill-demanding photographic instrument, the iPhone.  Anyway, despite having a mountain of DIY projects and ever-neglected chores to do around the house, we headed out for […]

The #OopsFiles 8: Guest Blogger Mum Revised

So amongst the fabulous #OopsFiles guest posts so far, we’ve had dubious commuter behaviour, hilarious vocabulary misuse, bare bums, yelling at the wrong person and key disasters galore to name a few.  You know what we haven’t had?  Evacuations.  You know of the body variety.  Comprende?  Now I’d love to be a team player and say that I […]
