  • Muddy reviews: Mud Kids

    Nothing I like to see more on Muddy than a story about mud! The Mud Kids obstacle race was held near Dorking on Sunday, and Muddy’s Tracy Wells was there with her family.

  • Get em outdoors!

    As a draconian, evil mother who tries to limit my kids’ screen time (boo! hiss!), I’m all for getting children active in the fresh air, moving something more than just their thumbs. But it can be hard to get kids motivated to get outside, so I asked the sporty types at Athletix Kidz – a Surrey-based athletics play programme […]

  • Muddy meets Mr and Mrs Twit

    Squeals of excitement when we heard The Twits were coming to The Rose Theatre in Kingston. Roald Dahl’s funny story of this spiteful and vindictive couple has long been a favourite in the Muddy Surrey house.

    So when I was lucky enough to get down and dirty with Robert Pickavance and Jo Mousley – aka Mr and Mrs Twit – I couldn’t help but hurl a few quick-fire questions at them. And they didn’t disappoint.

      • Muddy review: Children of Eden at the Harlequin Theatre, Redhill

        Ok, so whenever I see a stage production that involves kids – whether it’s in the West End or at my kids’ school – I cry. Most of the time I don’t even know the kids on the stage, so imagine how I might be if my own kids were up there. Last night it […]
