Parenting Blog Posts

This blog is, as the title suggests, a tad random at times, often a rant. Sometimes I do stray into being a mummy though, and blog about parenting. I offer advice, sometimes I wear a judgey hat and judge, but as always, it's only some woman on the internet, don't get too excited. Feel free to read and then ignore or take the advice as the mood takes you. Comments are welcomed.
