• Introducing Macnaughty – Lighter Brighter Times Ahead

    By amodernmilitarymother on March 10, 2015

So here’s the deal; I have to write that godamn pesky book – Looking For Mr Rabbit. This is now my priority and will remain my focus until the project is completed. In the meantime, I have […]

    By amodernmilitarymother on March 2, 2015

    By amodernmilitarymother on January 29, 2015
    Who are you? I am preparing to immerse myself in an edit. Sarah Westcott from the Addendum Agency has come back to me with notes on how to improve my magnus opus ‘Looking For Mr Rabbit’. I am very excited. I am also nervous as the work load is enormous. The book will now be clearly influenced by Lewis Carroll’s […]

  • The Right Cycle: How to Choose a Bike for a Child

    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. As they reach the age of three or four, you buy their first tricycle and soon they’re careering around the kitchen, front room, and […]

  • Manchester – Need Yer’Air Done?

    By amodernmilitarymother on January 20, 2015
    I have thick, long nightmare hair, which is greying rapidly. I am a stylist’s nightmare. When I walk into a salon and ask for a full head of highlights they literally shudder. Finding a stylist that I can trust has been the bane of my life. It is a blessing and a curse. Yes, it’s nice to have body, but […]

  • Real Life: 2015 It’s Time To Let It Go

    By amodernmilitarymother on January 6, 2015
    Happy New Year!! Did you have a spectacular Christmas and New Year? I had a super chilled, gluttonous Christmas which I would like to dedicate to Netflix and the Danish/Swedish series The Bridge. It’s awesome and I have some very similar character traits to Saga Noren, the lead detective, and she does make me chuckle in between being gripped by […]

    By amodernmilitarymother on December 10, 2014

  • 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 […]
