Beta Mummy’s Hot Toddy Recipe


It’s been a while, but due to popular demand (“popular”, “demand”) I’m back for Beta Mummy…COOKS! with my recipe for Hot Toddy.

I use the word “recipe” in the loosest terms.  But I mean, I am heating something (water), and there is food involved (lemon, honey), so that is cooking, right?

Chucklemums Linky Week 21


Dear regular and devoted readers.  I’m  sorry I have been a bit lax on the doodling front lately – I’m afraid that real life has gotten somewhat in the way.  My “fans” (LOL) will know that FC#1 started school recently, so we’re still settling into that new routine.  I’m still (obviously, sigh) single-mumming it, whilst working almost full-time, managing a big construction project on site, and trying to sort out my divorce… my poor blog is suffering as a result.  However, I promise that this coming weekend I have set aside some hardcore doodling time.  (Not hardcore doodles, that would be sick and wrong…although could be rather hilarious…My linked post is the closest I’ve gotten to THAT sort of thing previously.)  Anyhow, I digress – do you think I’ve said “hardcore” enough times to trigger a spam warning in your firewall yet? – you will get some good old fashioned Alpha Mummy vs Beta Mummy doodles very soon.


Meanwhile, some things cannot stand still and wait for such trivialities as solicitors, mortgage companies and Type 6N granular fill.  Therefore, without further ado, I introduce the new and improved #Chucklemums blog linky!

#Chucklemums Linky Week 19


Welcome back to #Chucklemums for week 19! Mumzilla has just got hitched and is currently “pre-occupied” on honeymoon, so you’re back with me, Sam (Mouse, Moo & Me Too) and Fran (Whinge Whinge Wine) for another week! Last week of the holidays… Let’s make it a good un! Our two winners last week were A Life Just Ordinary with a post about…

#Chucklemums Week 18


Well hello there – welcome back to #Chucklemums for week 18, co-hosted by little old me.  The point of this linky (blog-share) is for bloggers to share their funniest posts, and for everyone to have a giggle reading them.  So pull up a pew, and let’s go… 

#Chucklemums Linky Week 17


I seem to be making a bit of a habit of this, but here I am again for the third time, co-hosting the pee-your-pants linky, #Chucklemums.  Guaranteed laughs aplenty, so if you have time on your hands and fancy a giggle, read on – welcome to #Chucklemums Week 17…

Beta Mummy Cooks…Lasagne

I’m no Alpha Mummy – I’m not a great cook, I don’t have a pristine, marble-topped kitchen, and I don’t have the time to lovingly prepare nutritionally-balanced food for my family at every single meal.  But I do try…so I decided that I would share some of the things I’ve learned along the way, by featuring some extremely special Beta Mummy recipes on my website.

I started off nice and easy last time with cheese on toast, but today I’ve bravely gone for something a little more complicated.  I would not recommend attempting this on a work night – save it for the weekend when you’ve got a bit more time on your hands.  Stick the kids in front of CBeebies and let’s get started with Beta Mummy’s Lasagne recipe:

#Chucklemums Linky Week 16


Once again, regular non-blogger readers, feel free to look away now as this is the weekly bloggers’ linky for linking up the funniest posts around.  Or stay and have a gander at the funnies, either way.

Anyhow, how the devil are you?  A very warm welcome back to #Chucklemums for Week 16 of this pee-your-pants linky.

#Chucklemums Linky Week 15


MumzillaIf you’re not a blogger-type, look away now, sorry.  Unless you want to find some new comedy blogging gold to entertain yourself with, in which case the link at the bottom is a good bet.  Anyhow, without further ado….


Roll up, roll up and welcome back to #chucklemums for week FIFTEEN!  And in case you didn’t notice, little old me, Beta Mummy, is co-hosting the linky this week alongside regular host Fran from Whinge Whinge Wine, and co-co-host, Sam from Mouse Moo Me Too.

Beta Mummy Cooks…Cheese on Toast

The world of blogging and social media loves a recipe – Pinterest goes mad for the bloody things.  A quick google search for “meat pie recipe” returned 3,910,000 results….wow.  So anyway, I decided to join the merry recipe bandwagon, and feature some extremely special Beta Mummy recipes on my website.

I’m going to kick off  with my recipe for cheese on toast.  Some of you may not think that something as humble as cheese on toast warrants a recipe…in that case then I suspect you are not a true Beta Mummy – when it comes to cooking at least!
