Beta Mummy COOKS…Easy Banana Loaf


Here we are again for yet another recipe in my Beta Mummy…COOKS! series.  This time, I’m going to treat you to one of our family favourites, banana loaf, something which I can guarantee the Feral Children will both eat.  That is because it is cake – what child doesn’t like cake?  And the absolute best thing about this recipe is that it contains actual real life fruit, so it’s actually very healthy.  Let’s call it one of their 5-a-day.

Alpha Mummy & Beta Mummy Camp It Up.


A couple of weekends ago, I took Feral Child #1 and Feral Child #2 camping. I kind of wonder if there’s actually much point in writing this post, because let’s face it, you can imagine how it’s going to go, can’t you?!

Packed Lunch Woes.


The nightly ritual of making the packed lunches does my bloody nut.  I always seem to forget about them until about 10pm, when I’m just about to go to bed, by which point I’m in no fit state* to hunt around for dinosaur cutters and employ actual imagination or thought.

Supermarket Woes.


It’s a pretty sad state of affairs when an “evening off” consists of going to the supermarket ALONE, and worse still, rather enjoying it…

Baking: Alpha Mum/Beta Mum-style


Honestly.  Whoever suggested to me that baking would be a “fun” activity to do with my two toddlers deserves to have the rock-hard, snot-infected products of said baking venture shoved up their arse.
