I wasn’t sure how he would be received, if I’m honest, as Mademoiselle is getting older & I’m sure some of her peers at school are sneering at the whole ‘Father Christmas is real’ statement. But my Mademoiselle still believes, and we’re really pleased inRead More
This week Little Mister has continued on his quest to get better at his writing with his letter to Father Christmas. And as such his spellings are now coming along nicely, thanks for asking! It’s amazing in just a few weeks how he’s remembering to spell words correctly more often rather than phonetically. Don’t getRead More
I love my slow cooker & since finding this book I’ve discovered a range of slow cooker recipes I didn’t even think would work! My slow cooker is mainly for casseroles and not much else. Primarily because I like the “everything-in-one-pot-leave-it-and-walk-away” principle most! Then I found this Slow-Cook Recipe Collection book & it shook things up.Read More

Hi, I'm Tracey. Follow my journey as a London mummy getting to grips with relocating to the Oxford countryside with two young children.
I'm all about discovering new places to enjoy with the kids, but also try and keep connected with lots of London activity, too.
I'm a big healthy eating fan but need quick fix recipes (essential!) as I love food but I'm no Nigella when it comes to cooking!
So Welcome to Mummy in the [oxford]Shire: Nothing heavy. Sometimes funny. All me.
