California Road Trip: San Francisco

sanfrancisco2

Our Summer 2015 California road trip kicked off with three days in San Francisco. I love coming here – San Francisco was one of the first places I visited in the US. During my 20s when I worked as a technology reporter, I spent a lot of time in the city, covering the emerging Internet industry. […]

A Break at Champneys Springs

I wrote a week or two back about how desperate I’ve been for a bit of a break from … well, from other people, basically. I’m nothing if not misanthropic. Luckily, I had been invited to review a One4All voucher, and after a bit of dithering, I used it to pay for a two day visit […]

The Best Laid Plans

I had it all perfectly scheduled. Which is how I should have known, of course. The summer? Has already come undone. The plan was simple. Flea would finish school and spend 2 weeks with her Dad. Then she’d head off on a PGL adventure for four days with her friend, during which time I would book […]

Puberty. Another parenting triumph.

As a blogger myself, I’m also regularly invited to review holidays and destinations, to write about here on Who’s the Mummy? Over the past six years, Flea and […]

You Know you’re a Modern Parent When…

It’s the first official day of the summer holidays. To celebrate, Flea and seven of her friends had a sleepover last night – not at my house, thank God. Apparently, there was riding down staircases in sleeping bags, racing down slides on scooters (“They had three wheels, it’s not like it was dangerous.”) and much […]

An Ode to Nine.

Nine’s such an unassuming number isn’t it. When it comes to kids, we expect huge leaps in development at one, two and three. Four and five are starting school. Learning to swim. Riding a bike. And everyone knows 11 is a big one – starting secondary school, embarking on puberty. Nine? Nine’s sort of in […]

Why are we so scared of men?

discrimination against dads

So, I’m going to let you into a bit of a secret: I like men. I point this out because some people think you can’t be divorced and a feminist and like men. Some people are stupid, what can I say? Anyway, I do like men. I date men. A lot of my most long-standing friends, […]
