A doodle of Alpha Mummy and Beta Mummy at the park with their kids. Alpha Mummy's child are waiting patiently for their turn on things, whilst Feral Child number 1 has climbed onto the roof of the fort, and Feral Child number 2 is climbing up the slide. Beta Mummy is oblivious to this as she is looking at Twitter on her phone.

A Trip to the Park with Alpha Mummy & Beta Mummy


It has been pretty good weather this summer, so we’ve been making the most of it and spending lots of time outside.  As I’ve said before, this is not because I am an Alpha-parent – far from it.  It simply means less time for my feral children to trash the house.  Our trips out have included plenty of visits to the beach, and approximately 47 trips to the park…

Alpha Mummy & Beta Mummy Camp It Up.

A Lovely Walk…AKA The Trudge of Doom


*Sigh*

We’re a pretty outdoorsy family – anything to minimise the house-trashing – but our outdoors activities tend to be somewhat…unstructured.

I was given this book a while back – ‘Kiddiwalks in Dorset’ – and wow! I thought, what adventures we shall have, my boys and I!  We shall explore the Dorset countryside starting at a convenient car park, follow a very carefully-planned route (not too difficult for little legs), with lunch at the halfway point (either a picturesque picnic spot or a family-friendly pub), finishing up back at the car just in time for naptime…BRILLIANT!  I shall bask in the sunshine and the glory of being such a great mum of two ruddy-cheeked, nature-appreciating, Frugi-wearing stars of Instagram!
