Well it’s here again, how on earth did another half term arrive just so quickly? ...
There’s something special about Isle of Wight. BritMums is a big fan of the little ...
Having recently planned a trip to Florida for the Easter holidays with the kids, I was looking forward to seeing what bargains I could hunt while I was out there. After all, I’d have the pick of some of the best shopping malls around. But what went from something that I was looking forward to, […]

Our #TeenTalk Twitter chat is all about how you talk to your teen with confidence about their challenges, including puberty. The chat is sponsored by the #TeenTalk campaign, run by […]
Hello and welcome to the BritMums Baking Round-up. I’m Julie from Julie’s Family Kitchen and I’ve taken over the role of Baking Round-up Editor from Kirsty. For the Baking Round-up this month, I’ve pulled together a fantastic selection of recipes to get you inspired to bake something for Dad this upcoming Father’s Day. The […]
The women’s game in professional football has come on leaps and bounds (or should that be kicks and headers?) over the past several years, with growing audiences and enthusiasm from fans young and old alike. When the Football Association invited BritMums to the SSE Women’s FA Cup Final at Wembley, we would have clapped our […]
I was asked by two high-profile programmes on terrestrial TV if they could document my business/journey and earnings late last year and I said no. I was also approached by several popular tabloids for the story too. Again, I refused. I wanted to share my story in my own words. I’m writing this to inspire others […]

Our vegetable patch is taking shape, although I think […]
The post I’ve chosen to feature from the post-40 bloggers’ community this month is by Hilary Farrow. It is her response to our writing prompt No. 122 which asked the question: “How are you?” When we tweeted this writing prompt, we added the words: “No, really, how are you?” Hopefully you get, then, we really wanted to […]

Hello, and welcome back to the Single Parent Round-up. I love writing this Round-up and sharing posts from our community but I think it’s hard to get a good feel for the wonderful bloggers I feature and so with permission from Britmums, I have decided that alongside the usual Round-up format that we know and […]
What’s that saying again? Oh yes, happy parents = happy children. What do you think? It all sounds terribly simple doesn’t it, but I do believe that there is an element of truth in there. Not enough to solve the ‘no green veggies past these lips’ phase perhaps, but on the whole I’ve noticed that […]
Hello from me and the SEND Blogger Community! It’s time for May’s SEND Round-up and this month’s starts with a farewell.
