Funny Things My Kid Aged 4 and 2 Months, Says

Kids can say the funniest things, and let me tell you, my own son, Xander who is now 4 and 2 months, basically needs his own show. 'Get that kid an agent, darling' as my good friend, the great actress Harriet Thorpe always says.

Saying ‘Yes’ More

I found a dog-eared copy of the 2005 best selling 'Yes Man' book by laugh out loud funny Danny Wallace the other day...

Our Weekend in Pictures

Oh the wonderful weekend, where did it go? It feels so long ago now and it's only Tuesday, and I'm missing running through russet fields at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and breathing in that crisp autumnal air, squinting at sunlight filtering through the trees.

The Cutest Kids in the World Get a Haircut

Seriously cute vlog alert people as the boys get a haircut, as do I, and my sister-in-law to be as a mobile hairdresser Nina pops in and turns my lounge into a hair salon!

My Favourite 90’s TV Shows

We're having a bit of a 90's revival in our house right now, reflecting on the good ol' days thanks to YouTube, as I take my kids down memory lane and some of the best telly EVER made. I'm so pumped, I've very nearly drawn a Cindy Crawford style beauty spot above my lips in excitement.

You Know You Have a Child at School When…

Anyone else feeling a little drained as we approach the end of the first term for our school starters? (Say yes, tell me it's not just me, please)! If you are, you'll no doubt relate to this list below!
The boys playing dog-Honest Mum

“Look Mummy, Look, We’re Dogs”

The words you've always wanted to hear, oh and the actions too-eating rice crispies off the playroom floor from plastic bowls. I've never been so proud. My clever, sometimes crazy twosome playing dog. Inevitably I had to take a picture of it, if only to bribe them in their teenage years.
Uncle George Clooney-Honest Mum

Uncle George Clooney

A bit of fun for you all but doesn't my Uncle Mike look like just like George Clooney himself? He's even had people run up to him in the street thinking it's the A Lister for flips sake-unlikely as Uncle Mike lives in Manchester but stranger things have happened, right?!

A Family Party

This family loves to party and those who follow this blog knows we have a lot of get-togethers-great Greek or Italian food (usually supplied by the family's restaurants), the funniest and funnest company you can imagine (we literally laugh the whole time), music (always) and most of all (and soppiest) there's always so much bloody love in the room.

Solos and Auntie Loulla

A Day with my Aunties

Anyone who knows me, understands how much I love hanging out with my family. In fact nothing, NOTHING makes me happier than when we're altogether, eating, laughing, eating, shouting (we don't do talking, we're Greek) and did I mention eating?! My family are utter happy-makers and that's the 'truth Ruth'!
