I’ve decided that it’s time to say goodbye to English Mamma but not to blogging. I am starting afresh in a new guise: The Kat Edit. There will be more lifestyle and less of the boys. O has now turned seven (can you believe it?), so it feels like time for them to have a little more privacy. I’m going to keep on doing much the same as before, but with fewer specifics about the boys. So please join me on my new adventure.
You know I’ve said before that I don’t really like running? Well, I have done a crazy thing: in the midst of busy times at work, studying for an exam in mid-June and juggling life in general with the boys, I’ve signed up for four 10km races this spring, summer and autumn. So now I need to add training for a 10km race to the list of things to do. I’d read about Haga Park Run before, but hadn’t thought much about it. After signingRead More
Do you love podcasts as much as I do? There’s nothing better than learning by listening to a podcast sitting on the bus, walking to collect the boys, on evenings when I’m on my own and the boys are in bed. I listen to a wide range but here are my five favourite podcasts. ♣ Kat Molesworth’s podcast at Blogtacular is a fascinating insight into the blogging and social media lives of others. It has led me to some great websites. I’m also hoping to make itRead More

But for me there is nothing worse than lacing up my running shoes and setting off for a long run in the great outdoors. If I am going to run, I want it to be over as quickly as possible. That makes a Tabata workout ideal for me asRead More
I have to admit something. Something a little embarrassing. I am 40 years old and I am still not totally sure what my real bra size is. I was last measured for a bra when I was 14 years old. And this means that I have bra problems. And I don’t think I’m alone in this. I suspect a great many of us are wearing the wrong size and wrong shape of bra. And when you think about it, that’s crazy. Because we wear them everyRead More
When we visited South Africa for the first time in 2013, we had no idea that we would fall head over heels with the country. We love visiting so much that we have just booked our fourth trip there. Yep, that makes it four years in a row now. I told you we love it. And South Africa with children is almost the perfect holiday destination for us. Just look at this. What’s not to love about scenery like this? And there is so muchRead More
