So instead here are some of my favourite blogs, websites and articles to peruse while I put some soggy, muddy washing on!
Fashion mum of 40-an established blog from Annmarie, mum of two with a similar taste level to mine.
Not another mummy blog-I love Alison's latest post introducing us to 'The kid who' website.
WHO WHAT WEAR-be inspired by their article '50 summer outfit ideas' weather permitting!
Nubie-great for contemporary kids furniture and having bought the low loft bed I can certainly recommend the 'Oliver' range from Denmark.
talentedladiesclub.com -read 'Home alone' to get a dad's perspective on his week left alone with four children.
I'm also reading 'The Love secret' by Dr Sue Johnson, which 'reveals that romantic love is an attachment bond, just like the one between mother and child.' It 'covers the three stages of a relationship and how best to weather them'.
So whilst we weather this storm I may catch up on my reading while the kids snuggle up on the sofa to watch the latest Disney offering!
