• Real Life – The Tipping point Yo!

    By A Modern Military Mother on January 25, 2014
    Today, I reached a tipping point. January 2014 is nearly done and dusted. 2014 lies ahead. Last week, I nearly threw in the towel on the my beloved book – A Modern Military Mother – Tales from the Domestic Frontline. I doubted myself. The naysayers were winning. Is it worth it? What am I doing? I am still really struggling […]

  • Real Life #SavetheNHS Britain needs you!! Appendicitis and The Grenade

    By A Modern Military Mother on January 16, 2014
    The first time I realised how lucky we were to have the NHS was when, unexpectedly, I broke my leg at the age of 28. I was freelancing in PR and living hand-to-mouth. I was taken to hospital by ambulance, operated on, treated and given a follow up treatment for over a year. It was incredible. The NHS was a gift. Last week, […]

  • Featured Post: Shoes That Tone Your Legs and Butt as You Walk

    By A Modern Military Mother on January 10, 2014
    I love my Fitflops. I know I am not alone and that I have many friends who also love their Fitlops too. I have them in a variety of styles – I have a standard Fitflop, a soft boot and a suede boot. In fact, with the summer around the corner (well, maybe, it could be. The longest night has passed.)

  • Guest Post: Five top tips for restoring order to your home

    By A Modern Military Mother on January 10, 2014
    Christmas may have come and gone, but the whirlwind of the festive season is bound to have left a path of destruction behind it.

  • Real Life: 2014 Year of the Blog

    By A Modern Military Mother on January 6, 2014
    It’s bliss at my house. I am home alone. The Grenade and The Menace are back at school. Hagar is back at work. For me, I have a year of endless unknown opportunity ahead of me. I have no work contracts lined up; it’s just me, my blog, my book, my You Tube channel and you, the reader. I watched […]

  • Real Life – My 2013

    By A Modern Military Mother on January 2, 2014
    This photo was taken New Year’s Day 2013 where I awoke with a black eye, which I was advised to coat with toothpaste  in order to dry out the cut. It was not a great start to a turbulent year. Not a publicly turbulent year. A privately turbulent year. Let’s just say I car crashed (nb: this is a metaphor […]

    By A Modern Military Mother on December 17, 2013
    Being in charge of one little angel or a brood of four or more can be a hectic and demanding job, and we all know how good it is for us to be able to take time out now and then. It’s not just the mum who benefits – the kids will have an easier-going, more relaxed mom if she’s […]
