Welcome back to the video round-up. This month I decided to do something completely different and ask people to submit their most viewed posts with a little blurb about why they thought it was so popular and why it was special to them. First up is a video from Kirsty Dee about a fitness bullet […]
Hello and welcome to the BritMums Baking Round-up. This month bloggers have been incredibly busy ...
Have you ever thought about changing your career? Is being someone’s mum and being a ...
Family holidays in Spain are always going to be a good idea — there’s great food, fantastic wine and amazing history. In the Aragon region in northern Spain, which nestles up against the Pyrenees and stretches to the charming town of Teruel (pronounced Ter-well), you’ve got a recipe for fun for kids from babies to […]
Last month I shared lots of posts around going away with little ones, but this month I wanted to focus more on great days out – to give you inspiration through the coming summer months. I love taking my three out for the day but I am useless at thinking of where we can go. […]
UV radiation is the major cause of sunburn, premature ageing (no!), eye damage and skin damage leading to skin cancer. Young children are at particular risk as increases in cancer can be related to UV exposure during childhood. In the UK, we are now experiencing high levels of UV, so now’s the time to […]

Hello and welcome to the family days out round-up. I am not sure what happened to May, it arrived and disappeared again in the blink of an eye, probably because my kids had a two week half term as the head teacher bolted all five inset days around it, plus we had two bank holidays […]
I wasn’t sure how I would write the BritMums happiness round-up post this week. The recent terrorist attacks have shaken me to the core. I don’t know how we are meant to feel after not 1 but 3 horrific crimes in such a short space of time. The world as we know it for our […]
Many SEND Bloggers took some time out of social media during the recent awful events in Manchester and London. After a break though, there has been a general desire to not let the events stop us continuing our lives. And so to our June SEND round-up. Last month, various aspects of behaviour and care that have been highlighted by […]
How do you feed hungry teen girls? This isn’t a trick question. Recently it was a situation my husband and I faced on a busy weekday. The solution was to seek out one of their favourite foods — pasta — and head to Prezzo. We went as part of the BritMums #PrezzoLaFamiglia Challenge, sponsored by […]
Did you hear that there was an election? No way?! Well at the time of writing the make up of the new government is still very unclear and so is the future of the country. Deals are being done, manifestos are being watered down, the Queen’s Speech has been delayed (or has it?!) For the […]

Well, the sun has had a few days of wearing his hat recently, which has been so nice after what felt like weeks of rain. We have been back and forth to France sorting things out in our new home, which is exciting. Yikes, only 2 and a half weeks to go until we move! […]
Please allow me to introduce myself… I’m Claire and I’m your new BritMums Foodie Round-up Editor taking over from Kirsty Phillipson-Lowe who has done a sterling job. I’ve been blogging my Edible Scottish Adventures at www.foodiequine.co.uk since 2012 and I’m a mum of two currently battling through their teenage years. Enough with the introductions. Time for […]
