Mother Hubbard at parent's evening

The whole process of Parent’s Evening is not, as a parent would at first have thought, for teachers and parents to meet and discuss the progress of a child. Nor is it designed to develop a structure to help and assist a child in the pursuance of their education, whatever the school letter may say.

Parent’s evenings are designed simply to torture the pupils.


Mother Hubbard's bargain

I'm not mean, I'm careful....

I've been known to go miles in hunt of the elusive deal that will save me 10%.  That is - 10% on the price of something that I didn't even know I wanted until I saw that four letter word … 'SALE'.

The best fun is taking a coupon into the shop and finding an assistant who had no idea that the promotion was running in the first place. This is especially good if you time your appearance with the supervisor's lunch break.


Mother Hubbard's Christmas lights

I've made a serious tactical error this Christmas.  I allowed the kids to talk me into buying Christmas lights.  For umpteen years I have managed to avoid the dratted things. But they caught me at a vulnerable moment and I caved in.

Why? I regretted the decision as soon as it was made. But once the die was cast, I was trapped. No way out. I still fail to understand how the kids managed to make me believe that these things would be no trouble.

So off we went to buy them...


Mother Hubbard spring cleans

I lead such an exciting life.

Each day I am overwhelmed by the thrills of managing the vast empire that is my home. And as the kids leave for school each morning, I am amazed by the devastation wrought on a domestic residence by two half grown members of the species. Most days I count myself lucky to have found the carpet by the time they return from their foray in to the world of education. And if, by some miracle, I’ve managed to prepare a healthy and nutritious meal by the time the warble of the Coronation Street trumpet begins, then I count that as a successful day.


Introducing Mother Hubbard

Mother Hubbard was born out of the desire to support the parish magazine at the church I attend. Our parish magazine has been around for a long time. It seems (as is so often the case) to rest on the shoulder of one or two dedicated folk. Month by month they put their heart and soul into a publication that has a readership of two church mice and a pigeon. Ok, so not really, but you get the picture.
