The One Where Flea was Neglected.

It’s been a fab weekend.

My first real weekend off in a month, what with the demands of organising the MAD Blog Awards and BlogSummit Manchester during September.

Flea and I took off to the beach on Saturday morning, then there was time for a quick trip to the park before heading off to Manchester to see Wicked live on stage – which was *amazing*.

Then on Sunday it was off to see the family for Sunday dinner, then home in time for a massive Playmobil session on the lounge floor – Flea’s recently been sent two Playmobil Western sets and adores them – particularly the tiny little toy explosives that blow the mine open so the bad guy can steal all the gold.

It was nice to spend some real quality time together. I suspect like many parents I worry about the times when Flea is ignored and (frankly) a bit neglected because I’m busy on other things.

I often used to wonder what she does with herself when she’s off playing in another part of the house.

But happily, I need wonder no longer.

She’s doing this.



I praise whoever invented mobile devices with rear-facing cameras. I think Flea’s probably a performer in the making.

Or possibly a dentist.

Or just weird.


Sally is a full-time blogger and founder of the Tots100, Trips100, Foodies100 and HIBS100 communities, along with the MAD Blog Awards. She spends a bit too much time on the Internet. She’s also a very happy Mum to Flea, the world’s coolest ten year old.

      They’re ace aren’t they. Can’t wait for Flea’s 18th birthday *evil laugh*

      Wicked was, truly, one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. Totally recommend it if it’s near you while on tour.

    Wicked is brilliant! I’ve seen it twice and took Grace the second time (she was 3!). That video is exactly like something Grace would do – she videoed herself interviewing the clotted cream pot once!! And, like you, I feel bad too if I am taking no notice of her!

      It’s brilliant, totally and utterly recommended.

    I’ve also come across similar videos! I’m always rather amazed at some of the things Zack comes up with! 🙂

    Love it – definitely a performer in the making! We stayed with some friends recently, and my daughter asked to borrow my video camera. When I watched back what she’d filmed she’d made a whole “Through the keyhole” style documentary touring my friends house and narrating as she went!

    SO glad you enjoyed Wicked – it’s currently my favourite show and I can’t wait to take my Mum to see it in November 🙂
