Are you a mummy bore?

One of the perils of not having a job is that I’ve become a little too wrapped up in my children’s lives. My husband thinks I’m becoming a mummy bore. Can it be true? Are there people out there who don’t want to know about my son’s double crown? Or my daughter’s love of red peppers? (She just likes red ones, not yellow or green. Fascinating).
Anyway, another peril of not having a job is that you have enough time on your hands to devise a pointless quiz like this one.

ARE YOU A MUMMY BORE?
Are you obsessed with your children, or do you have a life beyond nappies, nursery rhymes and anything else beginning with N that I just can’t think of right at this minute? Try our fun quiz to find out.
