So we made it back to Blighty after our French road trip and what a trip it was. I have to say I’m a complete Eurocamp convert – having never done this kind of holiday before. We’ve driven to France before and always find it fairly easy. Well, I find it easy because hubster does … More Happy (euro) campers
After a few crazy weeks of school, work and just life, we are packing up and hitting the road for our summer (we’ll, half term) break in France. Once again we are driving (don’t ask why!) but heading a little further south. First stop, Orleans – although I keep having to remind hubster that this … More Team Mumsomnia do France 🇫🇷
Ok, so I’m more than a week k to 2018, but thought I’d wish everyone a happy new year! No new resolutions for me, I’ve come to the conclusion at this age that if I need to wait til January to fix something in my life, it probs my isn’t that important to me. Change … More Happy new year!

Not just the cliched … More 9 lessons from 9 years of parenting
I’ll be totally honest. This weekend was by no means perfect. I actually started writing this post a few weeks ago, but all the madness and sadness in the world made it feel a little inappropriate. But it feels like now is a good time to share… Slight exaggeration but as this weekend comes to … More Formula for a perfect (family) weekend….
There are nearly 7 years between my two boys. Not exactly how I would have planned it but it’s just right for team Mumsomnia. From the day Boy1 arrived we were constantly bombarded with the inevitable question of “when are you having another?”Believe me it gets tired after about 6 months, so 7 years of … More Mind the Gap
Tomorrow Boy 1 goes back to school after 5 weeks of fun with me and Boy 2. Whilst he is ridiculously excited to be starting junior school and reuniting with his friends, I’m quietly mourning the loss of the summer. Not because of the blistering sunshine or an amazing foreign holiday (I live in Manchester … More Saying goodbye to a special summer
