• A quick introduction..

    By Al Rush on September 20, 2013
    .. Clare has kindly asked me if I’d like to post the occasional blog. I won’t be posting about weekends away (although this Saturday, I will be spending a couple of days here with my girl), making jam or choosing trendy wellies.. or like Clare seems to do; casually hanging out with the rich and famous.  But I do hope to be […]

  • Family friendly Scotland: Our 5 favourite attractions

    By A Modern Military Mother on September 20, 2013
    There’s just something about Scotland that keeps us coming back year after year. Even when the weather is dreich, as Hagar, A Modern Military Mother’s Scottish husband would say, it’s a green and gorgeous country steeped in history and soaked in not just rain, but atmosphere. And, with adventure and attractions galore for all the family, we don’t need much […]

  • JUST EAT Order Takeaway Service Review

    By A Modern Military Mother on September 19, 2013
    Most of us do our best to keep our children healthily fed while sticking to a budget. We obsess over making sure that they’re eating their five-a-day rather than gorging on sweets, we try to establish routines about mealtimes (a good meal schedule helps cut down on eating between meals) and we do our best to keep their diet varied.

  • You For Coffee?

    By A Modern Military Mother on September 18, 2013
    Are you a coffee or a tea drinker? I hail originally for Yorkshire and part of my constitution is tea. I have to start the day with a cup of tea, ideally, Yorkshire, hot, medium strength, skimmed milk, no sugar. However, I am also a coffee lover so after I have enjoyed my first tea drink of the day I […]

  • A Room for Living In

    By A Modern Military Mother on September 15, 2013
    The living room is just that, a room for living in. In a household with children I think it’s important to strike the balance between style, comfort and functionality. It is after all, the room that the family spends the majority of their time together in, both adults and children alike. In my home, we share the space with toys, […]

  • In Loving Memory of My Mum RIP 9th Sept 74 – #Book A Modern Military Mother #Free #Kindle #Download

    By A Modern Military Mother on September 9, 2013
    On this day, 9th September 1974, my mum died, aged 26 years old. I was 2 years old. Her death taught me that life is short and that we should live each day to the full – carpe diem and it shaped the person I am today. It has given me great strength, taught me wild, strong survival instincts and as […]

  • Sorry I Am Going To Use The C Word

    By A Modern Military Mother on August 30, 2013

Mine are now back, and for the most part, by the end of the week, the majority of the little darlings will be fully ensconced in the new school year. I can’t actually believe that I am going to say it but I am already thinking about Christmas! […]

  • #Backtoschool – It’s That Time of Year Again

    By A Modern Military Mother on August 30, 2013

This September both my children will be going to state school and so for me, believe it or not, the back to school purchases are not as painful as usual. Even more so because I managed to get so much for so […]

  • Trunkisaurus-tastic

    By A Modern Military Mother on August 20, 2013
    When the Grenade was 4 years old and the Menace wasn’t born we were holidaying in Greece, and we met a family whose 4 year old daughter had a Trunkisaurus. As it was a holiday, where you all transferred together we went with them to the airport and their little girl dragged this suitcase everywhere with affection and adoration. I […]
