Swimming and School Worries for Top Ender

Image
Last night Top Ender went swimming with Daddy, whilst Mummy stayed at home and ate junk food whilst watching a TV programme recorded from the night before.


Top ender jumped straight in to the swiming poll and swam off much to Daddy's amusment as normally it is a fight to get her to swim at all.


This morning Top ender also confirmed why it was she didn't want to go to school - it turns out she thought that all schools were boarding schools and she would miss me too much!

Really must stop her watching Madeline and reading my old books to her!

Family Fun List

Daddy and I have a wish list of things that we would like to do with Top Ender and Big Boy before they are too big to appreciate the magic in everyday life. As this blog is a record of the fun things that we do as a family, we thought that you might like a list of the Family Fun we want to get up to.

We will keep adding to this list as we think of things that would be fun or as Top Ender and Big Boy come up with suggestions as they grow, if you have an idea for us feel free to suggest it!

All About Us

Image
A Mothers Ramblings is the true story of an ordinary British family that like to have fun with everything they do. 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 blog is written by Mummy AKA PippaD. Pippa is not your typical British Mummy Blogger although she does cook, clean, garden, play with her children and write this blog! Pippa is well known for her creative lunches, for asking very random questions and 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 Neighbours or trying to sort out the junk drawer. You can also find her at Pippa World where she is blogging about her weight loss journey and random thoughts that pop in her head.
Daddy is the head of the household and every so often on Twitter where he is known as Flyfour. His twi…

I wish this was a delightful page about all the cookies that I make but instead it's about little bits of information that through the magic of the internet makes it way from my website to your computer. If you want to read a proper description of what a HTTP Cookie is click that link and it will take you to Wikipedia where some clever people have explained it so that even I can understand it. Anyway, because the EU like to make sure that everyone has their own privacy protected they have made a new law that says I have to tell you that I use cookies on my website.

It's true I do, I use them in Google Analytics which helps me know who reads what on my blog, using what device and where they are from in the world. This helps me to know things like more people come to read my Barbie film reviews than anything else, which I'm not so sure is a good thing and also that the majority of people who read this blog are from the UK but that there are some readers in Peru (¡Hola!), Chi…
