Mollie is my friend’s dog and she’s here for a mini break for a few days. Can’t say Arnie is too impressed by having another dog in the house but Bonnie is made up!


Nothing to see here.

The unicorn.

Have I mentioned that Santa brought Evie a very big, fluffy, glow in the dark unicorn for Christmas?

Happy Christmas.

I’m hemmed in by a sea of wrapping paper, a huge fluffy glow in the dark unicorn, a talking robot, random lego and a Hadrian’s wall of toys. The kids are having a whale of a time as I’m on cleaning strike.

Hope yours was a peaceful one with lots of sprouts.

Myles and myself have been making Christmas crackers for the kids to pull on Christmas Day. We’ve even managed to get hold of some snaps to create the bang (if they manage to pull them apart as I’ve used far too much sticky tape).

Great cake mistakes.

So when is the best time to realise that you forgot to add flour to your Christmas cake recipe?
a) Five minutes into cooking.
b) One hour into cooking.

Wrapping paper.

Can somebody tell me how to carry rolls of wrapping paper without looking like a drunk giraffe?
