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.
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

So, when Jord Watches contacted me about their latest models, I was keen to try out a watch from their men’s range. Behold, the Delmar: I love the autumnal colours of the wood and the purple background and especially the mustard yellow second hand. The silver hour and minute hands allow me to match the DelmarRead More
Specialist teas seem particularly hot just now, especially ones that help you to detox or slim down. And I have joined this tea club. I’m now halfway through the Teami 30-day detox tea programme. You might have heard about Teami Blends on social media or seen my Instagram pic when I started drinking the tea. They have a range of different blends, including the detox package and nighttime teas. And when they kindly sent me their two detox teas to try out, the timing could not have beenRead More
I have started to become a little obsessed with getting a good night’s sleep in the past couple of years. It coincided with the boys getting older and E learning (then aged two and a half) to sleep through the night properly. Gradually though, I have found what works for me with how to sleep well. How to sleep well: What to do during the day ♦ Daylight during the day: Exposure to sunlight during the day can help you sleep better at night. Sitting a whole dayRead More
