“Let the sunshine in, let the sunshine in, the sunshine…” I imagine all of you that have broken up have been out and about enjoying this fabulous weather this week? We are still at school but we’ve had a great sports day, a fabulous school trip and lots of birthday fun too as the twins […]

Blogging since Jan 2010, she finds it hard to drag herself away from her laptop.

My twins will be celebrating their 6th birthday midweek next week, they are extremely excited about it and have been writing ‘Who to invite?’ lists since last October so they are extremely organised. They have been throwing the odd hint of gifts into conversation (basically anything from the Disney Frozen range) and which cake they’d prefer […]

A lot of schools have already broken up for the summer break but if you’re like us, we’re waiting until the 24th July! Ridiculous really when you think continental schools broke up on the 6th June. Still we are enjoying some wonderful weather to accompany the Sports Day, the school trip and the many other exciting […]
What a whirlwind of a brilliant time I just had. Admittedly it’s taken me all week to scramble back to some kind of ‘normality’ but I’m closing the gap people, closing the gap. BritMums Live, tickets are already on sale for next year and I still haven’t fully digested this one. I think my […]
Hello, hello again….WHO is as excited as me? I bet none of you are because I can’t sit still for two minutes without a BritMums Live thought popping into my head. Wowzers guys, are you ready for the best blogging event of the year? Have you decided what to wear? Have you arranged to meet […]
*sharp intake of breath* I missed last week’s #MBPW. I hadn’t planned to miss it, it just happened. We went to Devon over half term and had a wonderful time, we even had a few days of really good weather, however, the signal where we were staying was pathetic to say the least. This seems […]
You are now officially allowed to get excited *squeal* BritMums Live is on the doorstep and bloggers aren’t talking of much else right now. There is a fantastic schedule lined up, some amazing speakers including Simon Calder, who I’m in awe of, and it’s going to be a ball. The question on everyone’s lips […]
Congratulations to all of the bloggers who reached the BiB Finalist stage 2014! Secondly to those shortlisted who didn’t make it, please remember you made the shortlist. It’s an excellent accolade and your badge will stay permanently on your blog to remind people of your achievement. I cried a little bit when I saw Mari’s World […]
The sun’s out and we’re in for a fabulous weekend, now that is something to smile about right because our British weather isn’t always so kind for example, I had to go into London one day this week. I left home and the sun was shining, I wore flat shoes and I didn’t take an […]
Thanks to everyone for the continued support in #MBPW it’s lovely to se so many taking part, I hope you are continually stumbling on new blogs and making new friends. BritMums is on countdown now for BritMums Live and this week we had a beautiful announcement letter from our Butterflies, they are there to make […]
I love my job! I love being a blogger and I absolutely LOVE being part of such a fun, bubbly blogging community, especially this week with the BiBs shortlist going live and guess what? I’m on it *squeals* I’ve been nominated in the FAMILY category and it was the best birthday gift ever, yes Tuesday […]
I’m going to Italy, I’m going to Italy, I’m going to …ohhh I’ve gone! Yes peeps, I’m flying out this morning on a BA flight at the crack of dawn to spend a short (way too short but it’s the best I can do right now) weekend with my two Italian offspring. I didn’t dare […]
Happy Easter everyone! By the time you read this you’ll be up to your ears in chocolate I imagine. Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing may your days be filled with sunshine and joy. If by any chance you are looking for questions for an Easter Egg Treasure Hunt, you’ll find a downloadable set […]
I am very embarrassed to say that my twins have already devoured 3 Easter Eggs each and I have another pair sitting in the kitchen and we’re still a week off Easter! “In my day” you didn’t get your egg (note single tense) until the big day nowadays you get eggs at a drop of […]
One of the greatest regular features on the BritMums blog has to be the Round-ups which are compiled monthly by our wonderful contributors. These are the bloggers who keep a beady eye on what’s happening in the blogosphere and share with us the crème de la crème, after all not all of us have time […]
I didn’t know about the family days held at Ascot racecourse until I visited recently and we had so much fun I wanted to pass on the tips we picked up on the day to make it a memorable and special family day out. Ascot Racecourse have five family days throughout the year and they […]
Easter, Spring, sunshine, flowers, longer days, chocolate – maybe too much chocolate but it’s happy days ahead everyone. It’s shorts and t shirts, it’s BBQ’s and outside fun, oh and it’s April which could mean April showers, in fact there have been some Aprils that have seen snow and with our weird weather who knows […]
