Osper – Mobile Banking for Young People

  Dexter has asked for money from me approximately 42,671 times this past weekend. Did he get any? Nope, he hadn’t kept his room tidy all week, but you have to admire his persistence.   Being 11 years-old means that it won’t be long before he wants to start going out with his friends without me (35 […]

A Life Update & Brita Water Giveaway

  What a week. I’ve been laid up in bed for most of it with a virus/food poisoning thing, I’m not quite sure what, but thankfully I’m finally on the mend … half a stone lighter too! Every cloud.   Life goes on though and the boys still have to go to work and school […]

Back to School with Zazzle

  For those of you that follow my other blog, We Blog Travel, you may remember we ran a competition in conjunction with a company called Zazzle. They make bespoke gifts and very kindly asked me if I would like to choose some products for WitWitWoo to feature.   My first selection of products are […]

The one where Dexter chose his school uniform

    The return to school is eight days away and we are counting down! Well I definitely am. I have bought the requisite scientific calculator, descant recorder and eleventy billion coloured pencils and, more importantly, I have spent A LOT on Dexter’s new school uniform as he is off to senior school.   There […]

A day on the Thames with MBNA Thames Clippers & The O2

  So I think we are probably at the midway point of the summer holidays. My God, it feels like it’s been months already. Don’t get me wrong, I love the bones of Dexter (obviously), but being a single parent who works from home AND has to entertain a child for six weeks can be […]

Should children be allowed technology on school trips?

      Dexter is lucky enough to be going on a school trip in June to the Isle of Wight for a week. Lucky to have a Mum like me who’ll cough up nearly £300 that is. (And you can see how much he loves his Mum in this photo!)   His older brother […]

Are All Single Mums Looking For A New Dad For Their Kids?

    Do you remember a blog post I wrote last week about a guy from a dating site that felt he could only date me if I kept my children very separate from him? I’ve been turning that around and around in my head all week, trying to make sense of it. I have […]

Smokefree Homes & Cars Campaign – My Story

  As I drove Dexter to school this morning, we got stuck in the usual traffic jam. Good times. As I looked to my right, I noticed a man stood outside his front door, dragging deeply on a cigarette, shivering away in his slippers. (Thankfully, he was fully dressed.)  It then struck me … this […]
