  • A happy cheese-free Valentine’s Day

    Valentine’s Day is fast approaching (eek) and it always conjures up a certain dread. Part of me doesn’t want to be told that Mr Muddy and I should be gazing into each others eyes on demand, the other part longs for him to want to lavish me with gifts and whisk me off my feet […]

    • Stay here: The Castle Hotel, Windsor

      And so it came to pass that the mudlets were gently but firmly pushed into the loving arms of their doting Auntie while Mr Muddy B and I hopped into the car and floored it. Yes, we had escaped to Windsor for 24 hours… no kids to harrass us, nothing to do but browse in shops (yes, […]

    • We have a winner!

      Well, I think it’s safe to say that the Muddy Stoke Park competition was popular! Over 2000 entries and a lot of finger crossing, but Christina St Croix (great name btw) obviously worked her toes too, because she has snaffled the luxe spa break for two for the night.
