Rediscovering the 'Me' in 'Mumeeeeeee'

'I have always thought that there is no more fruitful source of family discontent than a housewife’s badly-cooked dinners and untidy ways'. (Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management, 1861)

Pakistan's Children

We've all watched the images on our TV screens of the utter devastation which has hit Pakistan due to the worst floods the country has ever experienced.

While we watch, we are usually compelled to do something to help. And then perhaps the phone rings, or your child cries and you get distracted and the Pakistan floods are forgotten again.

Millions of people, many of them children, have been affected by the floods and urgently need our help.

Please take 2 minutes to watch this
short video by Ewan McGregor for UNICEF . It will maybe serve as a reminder of that support you intended to give.

For just £10 you can provide an entire family with safe drinking water. For £30 you can provide vaccinations to protect more than 30 children against life threatening diseases.

Thank you.



  1. A very worthwhile cause HCM. Have supported UNICF for a while, as you may know.

  2. Yes - it's so important to donate. I wish I could do something more practical and hands on though.
