But wipe away the sweat and beer of the men’s game, and look to this year’s women’s World Cup in Germany. While Japan were the eventual winners, [...]
I have to say, this feature on the BritMums blog is just the most fun! Keeping my eyes peeled for outstanding posts and bloggers each week makes the blogosphere a very fun place indeed.

We’ve all tried to motivate recalcitrant children for an outing or even a trip to the corner shop. Just imagine getting them enthusiastic about a trek across five continents. The journalist Rosie Millard, who blogs at Helicoptermum.com, set off with her family to a tour of the French Overseas Departments and Territories (the Dom-Toms) [...]
Kate Morris joined BritMums just months after we launched in 2008.

Well, another article has hit the web, this time from the Telegraph. Another article that criticises the online parenting forums (Mumsnet and Netmums in particular) and the plethora of “mummy bloggers” who somehow find the time to blog amid all of their other responsibilities. The author, Jojo Moyes, manages to criticise the topics on the [...]

This weekend we attended one of the highlights of our summer: Giffords Circus in the Cotswolds. I made mental notes, jotted down observations and took pictures with my iTouch. I’m kinda in love with everything about Giffords and I wanted to convey that excitement and affection with my blog post. As a result, I was [...]
