‘Twas The Night Before Christmas – A 2018 Version

Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro’ the house,The children were feral, and had head louse;A child was crying ’cause someone didn’t share,Another was frantic because they’d lost a stuffed bear;Daddy was pleading “Is it time for bed?”,While mummy was muttering ’bout de-licing their heads,The tree looked dishevelled, no thanks to the cat,Who played […] Read more…

Wrecking Ball Parody

For some reason in my slightly warped brain, Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus has always reminded me of childbirth.  Maybe it’s the site of her writing around on that concrete ball.  It reminds me of trying to bounce the baby out on a birthing ball.  It’s been a while since I wrote a parody, so […] Read more…

Summertime by Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince – A Parody

Last month we had a lovely family holiday in Cornwall.  Unfortunately that lovely holiday started with a four hour road trip from hell, and thus inspired this little parody of Summertime by Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince.

Little Lies – A Fleetwood Mac Parody

I often tell myself little lies.  Like the Chinese takeaway will be fine because I am going to have a fruit smoothie for dinner for the rest of the week.  Who am I kidding?   But at this time of year I feel like everything that comes out of my mouth is a lie.   […] Read more…

I Just Want to Pee in Peace

  Adele and chocolate rank highly in my list of favourite things.  So seeing as it’s Easter I thought I would combine the two.  Here is my version of the heart-achingly beautiful, “All I Ask” for everyone that has overindulged on the chocolate eggs. You might need a crowbar…     All I Ask I’ve […] Read more…

Why Does it Always Rain on me?

It’s 1999 I’m driving around in my Austin Metro with the window down (because it was broken) and singing my heart out to Why does it always rain on me? by Travis.  I didn’t actually care if it was raining or not.  Sleek hair was not in fashion and no one really knew what GHD’s were. […] Read more…

The Toddler-o (A Mummy’s Alternative to The Gruffalo)

The Gruffalo is a much read book in our house.  So much so I could read it with my eyes closed.  So I penned this alternative version all about the creature we like to call The Toddler-o. Design by Crayon Creative, contact mandygreenslade@gmail.com   The Toddler-o A Mummy took a stroll through the toy cluttered home. A […] Read more…

a mum's Christmas carol

A Mum’s Christmas Carol

  Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without belting out a few Christmas Carols.  Maybe you like the classics, Good King Wenceslas or Deck the Halls.  Maybe you’re more of a Santa got stuck up the chimney kind of person.  But if you are a Mum I’m sure you will appreciate a Mum’s Christmas carol. It […] Read more…
