Kate’s Top Tips for Sleeping

    There are some things in life I take very seriously. My children, obvs, and everything to do with them. Education. Health. Just how long Dexter is on that bloody PS3. But I’m also passionate about other things – being good at my job, making sure I...

An Update From Eddie

    I don’t know if you remember me talking about Eddie from my local café, the old man that made me cry just by looking at his pitifully sad face. It’s a long story, but have a little catch up about him here,  here and here if you like.   So the story...

Our Typical Saturday

  I wrote earlier this week about how I’m a little stressed post-holiday (yes, yes, poor Kate with her fancy Mark Warner holiday to Rhodes!) … Ben’s going back to Uni and we’re in the midst of two days of the 11+ test for Dexter. TWO! So I thought I’d just look...

The Dreaded 11+

    I’m back from Rhodes and am feeling a little fragile. That’s either down to the lack of sleep or the fish bowl I drank from … along with an assortment of other bloggers. But that’s another story.  (Review of holiday to follow.)   I’ve definitely...

My Birthday Wishlist – Part 1

  As September has now formally announced itself and I’ve explained how much I love it in this post here … let’s just cut to the chase and talk birthdays.   Specifically mine.   Birthdays haven’t really been celebrated much in my...

Reasons I Love September

    Now the children are safely back at school (huzzah!), now is the time to look ahead and thing about all the wonderful things September will bring.   OK, OK … it’s my birthday month, so I have a vested interest in September, but that aside (all...

Those Awkward Questions Kids Ask

    There has been a worrying development at Sutton HQ.   As regular readers will know, Dexter is now ten years old and, overall, a really good boy. He’s polite, well-behaved and good fun to be around. I’d say I was lucky … and I am, but I also like to...

Summer Holiday Homework

    Dexter goes back to school tomorrow and I feel a little blue. I’ve loved spending so much time with him this summer holiday because I’m normally stuck in an office for those six weeks whilst simultaneously selling a kidney on eBay to pay for the...
