There comes a point in every young girl’s life when she’s over the whole princess thing. At least, that’s what happened in our family. My daughter no longer wants her heroines served up with a dollop of glitter and a saccharine disposition. That’s one of the reasons we were excited and intrigued by Unicorn Theatre’s […]

Hey blogger! Are you addicted to your mobile phone? NO? Are you sure? The Family Adventure Project’s Kirstie Pelling believed her handset was just something that allowed her to work in coffee shops. Until it was stolen. And she realised it had actually become an extension of herself… A mobile phone is pretty important to […]
Christmas is the time of year when so many of us want to give to others who would otherwise go without. Liz Jarvis from The Mum Blog talks about choosing a charity that fits with her philosophy. A few years ago, Rosie Shelley and I were invited to visit UNICEF’s headquarters in Copenhagen, where we […]
A couple of weeks ago my friend Gela and I met at our local, during which time we caught up about work, family and — naturally — what happened in the latest installment of the Great British Bake Off. A good portion of the evening was spent discussing the dishes that contestants make as well […]
What do kids want when they stay in hotels? Contrary to what some might think, it’s not necessarily XBox in the room. At BritMums we recently gathered together a group of family travel bloggers to talk about this and other travel blogging issues at our #KidsatTaj day. We were hosted at 51 Buckingham Gate, a […]

A big, long-haul adventure trip is something so many of us hope to take as a family — exposing our children (and ourselves) to new people, sights and lands. But they can be challenging. Because of the time and expense, we want to make the most of it and come away with happy lasting memories. […]

Sigmund Freud never puzzled out what women want. Is the Conservative Party any better at it? I’m speaking on a panel next week at a Conservative Party Conference fringe event: The Politics of Motherhood – Are Conservatives doing enough to support women’s choices? (Go to the Facebook page.) We hear more and more about how […]
She’s beautiful. She’s charming. She creates utterly delicious Indian food. You might think this is enough to actually warrant a marriage proposal to Anjum Anand. As it was, it didn’t come to that. Instead, I was invited to sit down with Anjum and four other journalist/bloggers last week to talk about food, family life and, […]
“Don’t feed the trolls.” We’ve all heard this advice as the best solution to quiet annoying, insulting, harassing and otherwise unwanted activity online. Many of us have probably said it at one time or another. But it’s time we all not just rethink it, but actually screw it up into a ball and throw it […]
It can be a tricky balance for us parents, deciding just how much technology to allow our children access to, and how often. Some parents are pretty much against it altogether. For some it’s about not wanting their children exposed to screens for any length of time or the potential dangers of the internet. Then […]
BritMums in Style magazine Even before I worked at News International (now going by the utterly different name “News UK”), I was a huge fan of the Sunday Times Style magazine. In fact, I loved it even before I lived in the UK. On a misguided visit to see a “boyfriend” (he now goes by […]
Earlier this month on a visit to Costa Brava I went on a walk through Cadaqués with a group of British bloggers and Spanish Instagramers. This city is part of Spain and very close to the French border, yet it guards its Catalonian heritage strongly. What it showed was that Cadaqués — a delightful former […]
