The Corruption of Youth!

Evidence that I'm not the only one going doolally in this house:

Today husband recorded daughter on his mobile singing "Sven Goran Erikson" (City's manager) to the tune of "La Donne e Mobile".

It is now the ringtone on his mobile!

Poor girl doesn't stand a chance, does she?

He should be shot for putting a defenceless child in that shirt!

Number two son's first word was "City". Norwich City I'm afraid but the brainwashing's the same!

Oh well, could be worse, he could have been a Chelsea fan!!!!

Your blogs made me smile about the football. After nearly 20 years-I have decided if you can't beat them...join them and do quite enjoy the game!

Your poor daughter!

I have two boys-one loves football-at 7 years old already decided he wants a professional career as a footballer...the other HATES it with a passion!!

warm wishes

It is very good to see a lovely photo of your daughter, today, but I do miss the avatar. I'm beginning to look forward to them.

No Gilbert O'Sullivan on myflashfetish? Horror of horrors! Useless lot!

Yes, and what a beautiful cherry tree below. And what a lucky child you have there in a smashing new home. Your husband was right. A special area for your child - the most important.
And the power of pictures. That photo you have as your icon, the little girl drying dishes. I'd like to fall into that photo many an afternoon. A nice moment captured.

Hello again. Maybe she'll rebel and get into tennis instead. Or skiing. Or flying. Or maybe not ...?!
p.s. It's nice to be back - GBS.

Hi Working Mum,

My name is Karen Leong, and I have been commissioned to write a piece on Mumnesia for Practical Parenting magazine. I found your blog via your reply to Mean Moody Middleaged Mom.

I wanted to find out if you'd be up for an interview about your Mumnesia experience.

Please email me back on

Best rgds,
