Perfect Wedding Photographs

The Perfect Wedding Photograph

This is my last cartoon about Summer Weddings and Perfect Wedding Photographs are on the agenda. Why don’t bridesmaids and pageboys behave the way we’d like them to? You can rehearse them for hours, days and weeks. They will do everything perfectly. UNTIL the day itself. I was a bridesmaid at my uncle’s wedding and […]

Wedding Invitations

Back to our Summer nuptials theme today. It’s sometimes a mixed blessing getting wedding invitations. Especially if the bride to be is your cousin who hasn’t considered your children as bridesmaids or pages until now. And also if she thinks that all children are beautiful, but some are more photogenic than others. Even the Royal […]

The Wedding Cake

This is a wedding I’ve never been to but it probably features very high in the nightmares of many a bride-to-be. You think you have wedding nerves? Here’s something else to worry about.

Eeh Bah Mum Wedding

EehBahMum won the first ever Heir Raising competition last week for the most exciting thing that happened over Half Term – Wedding of the Year. She went to it with her small daughter wearing a pristine cream coloured dress. Asking for trouble doesn’t even begin to describe this sartorial decision.  Thanks to a collision of […]

Ratio of children to carers

Well Nick Clegg has seen sense even if Serial Mum’s man hasn’t. The ratio of children to carers is a hot topic in any home with more than one child. Even then it’s a hot topic. How can anyone possibly imagine it’s safe to have six very young children looked after by one adult? I […]

Gummy Mummy’s blog

Last time, we heard Plummy Mummy’s blog and her honest account of what it’s like to mix with “all sorts”. Gummy Mummy’s blog should prove interesting, though her miniscule computer capacity is clearly in inverse proportion to her age. And it’s not that she’s competitive, but Nicole Kidman just isn’t in the same league. Read […]
