A Mothers Ramblings: All about us

All about us

A Mothers Ramblings is the true story of an ordinary British family that like to have fun. 
They don't mean to be funny, but quite often find themselves having conversations or in situations that wouldn't be out of place in a Classic British sitcom.

The A Mother's Ramblings Family


The blog is written mainly by PippaD, aka Mummy, Mum, Crazy Cat Lady and a host of other names (some not publishable!) too! Her favourite has to be MUM! though. Oh wait, not that's just the one used most often.

Pippa is not your typical British Mummy Blogger. I mean she does cook, clean, garden, play with her children and write this blog, but she also spends her free time staring out the window putting off doing the cooking, cleaning, gardening and working out if she even has any children...

Pippa is well known for her love of socks, somewhat creative lunches, for asking very random questions, her love of having fun and Dr Pepper. If she isn't on a fun day out with her Family, then you will find her at home playing with her children, exercising whilst trying to watch Netflix or trying to sort out the junk drawer... which thanks to Marie Kondo she is actually doing really well at!

Pippa is also a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and is currently enjoying her time as her wards Primary President. She says it has nothing to do with being the same mental age as the Children in the ward but everything to do with Nursery having spare snacks each Sunday!

You can also find her at Pippa World where she is blogging about her weight loss journey, but don't hold your breath for regular updates, she likes food far too much for anything as trivial as losing weight...


Flyfour is the head of the household and every so often on Twitter and of course, the children most often call him Daddy, Dad or DAD!

His twitter stream includes pictures of what he and the family are up to, the funny things he sees or finds funny on Twitter, the occasional complaint about late trains or traffic jams, his love of gaming and Gluten free Food images.

Daddy occasionally writes blog posts, is in charge of the 3D projector, makes a great Gluten free Apple Crumble.

There is nothing that Daddy likes better than watching Only Connect in bed, making the perfect Gluten free Scone or turning the house into an automated wonder. He also likes flying Drones, watching Michael McIntyre, shouting RHLSTP and bemoaning that he gets all the rubbish snacks because of his being a Coeliac.

Top Ender

Top Ender is Twelve years old and always looking for fun, something to read or doing her homework.

She is occasionally on Twitter and Instagram but more than likely she is practising her Violin or Cello, or rather pretending she is practising and actually watching Netflix, playing The Sims or talking to her friends on Whatsapp or Skype.

Top Ender's biggest ambition was to own a sweet shop, whilst holding down a full time career as a Fashion Designer/Model/Pop Star/Best Selling Author/Dancer/TV Star. Now however she's thinking about being a Costume Designer.

Knowing how determined Top Ender is she'll probably manage everything on the list before she's twenty.

Dan Jon Jr

Dan Jon Jr is Eight and likes everything, even more so, if it is Green Red Blue.

Dan Jon Jr was diagnosed as being a Type 1 Diabetic on Friday the 13th July 2012, and has been on an Insulin Pump since 13th February 2014, but it doesn't stopping him having fun or trying to scoot down the hill in front of the house without using his breaks!

Dan Jon Jr is really creative and spends a lot of time making his own books and comics, drawing pictures and creating videos to go on Youtube or putting selfies on Instagram.

Dan Jon Jr hopes to make it big one day in programming, he has promised his Sister that she can design his company uniform and the clothes of any characters he creates in his games.

In the mean time you can check him out on Twitter if you are so inclined and yes, you are right he has been called both Baby Boy and Big Boy in the past here on A Mother's Ramblings!
