    If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing properly.   My agent had a peek at Looking For Mr Rabbit and quoted my mother back to me: ‘From the very beginning, she made it quite clear she was not going to be fobbed off with kind words and gentle handling. If she was hungry, she wanted feeding immediately – no […]

    By amodernmilitarymother on January 20, 2015
    Kids grow at an alarming rate. It was only yesterday, or so it seems (!), that they were taking those first tottering steps from the crawling stage. All of a sudden, they want to be mobile.

    By amodernmilitarymother on January 6, 2015

  • Real Life: #PoshPeople on BBC2 @TatlerUK – How posh are you?

    By amodernmilitarymother on December 3, 2014
    I love watching tv shows about rich people and posh people. Made in Chelsea is my guilty pleasure, although I can only watch it sporadically as I find it utterly vacuous; yet it’s so awful that it’s so good. It’s like Fifty Shades of Grey, saccharin. (Check out my review of Fifty Shades of Grey: http://amodernmilitarymother.com/book-reviews/i-am-clit-flick-lit-crack-whore-fifty-shades-of-grey-review) I don’t watch soap operas […]
