Braun No Touch + Forehead Thermometer – A Review

How brilliant to be able to take your child’s temperature without disturbing them whilst they are sleeping! When your baby has yet another nasty virus that he picked up at Play Group and is throwing a high temperature, it can be really worrying, especially at night time.  Babies seem to get so hot in the night and a temperature that is reaching 40 degrees is every parents fear. When our boys are really sick we often get up in the night to check their temperatures and make sure they are comfortable.  Sticking a thermometer in their ears often wakes them […]

Confessions of a Guilty Mother!

  Guilt is high up there on the list of emotions that you feel on a daily basis as a mother.  Even if you sit on the floor all day and play with your little ones (massive pet hate of mine) and tend to their every needs, then you will feel guilty about the housework or the social life you are neglecting. If you spend all day polishing your kitchen counter top and preparing gourmet meals for your children and husband, then you will feel guilty as they tug at your leg or yell at you for attention.  If you […]

Every child’s birthday is a chance for us to celebrate what WE achieved the day that child was born..and of course to congratulate ourselves on making it through another year in one piece! It is amazing to be able to spoil any child with a few presents and perhaps a party, but it is very special when someone takes a moment to raise a glass with or give a hug to the mother or father. I went to a 2 […]

Swimming to the Isle of Wight to Raise Money for Borne!

I swam a lot as a child.  My father is a very good and very keen swimmer and he would take me, my sister and brother every Sunday morning whilst my mother prepared the hallowed Sunday Lunch. I guess I always assumed that he took us swimming purely for the love of the sport and his desire for us to share this and learn an important skill.  But now as the mother of two boisterous boys who go swimming with their father every weekend, the cynic in me sees the truth. My mother just wanted a few glorious hours to […]
