The end of March and it’s been a busy and potentially hilarious month what with Red Nose Day, the snow, Mother’s Day, and Easter. Yes, Easter in March. It’s so early I wonder if some people did start the week having no idea how it would end and having to rush out at the last […]
About Not a Notting Hill MumNot a Notting Hill Mum" is a journalist and writer, who has lived in Notting Hill for 15 years and blogs about ordinary life in W11 among the celebrities, supermodels and super-rich. She is slowly getting used to the fact that she is also a mother to Amelie and Alexander (now 8 and 5). So as well as writing about what's going on in the neighbourhood from cool - and affordable- places to visit, to how to find the Blue Door, NNHM also writes about the issues thrown up by modern family life and the funny things her children do and say. You can find her at http://www.notanottinghillmum.co.uk

Love is in the air. February: the month of romance and St Valentine. Ok, the month of not being able to go out without seeing shiny red hearts everywhere : whether they be balloons, chocolates or satin cushions. And the month of being persuaded at every turn to swop your cash for a cute little […]
As it is still January –or it was when I started writing this! – I was hoping for some hilarious new year’s resolutions for this months’ round-up . So first prize to Lowden Clear for providing just that. I particularly like the idea of enjoying nice presents and not saving them for best. For you […]
So “It’s Christmas time… there’s no need to be afraid” .. This time round there’ll be no tales of sexual exploits or frightening episodes involving anything purple. If you don’t know what I’m talking about then read last month’s sex and romance LOL roundup here on Britmums. The idea this month was that there […]
As the Christmas party season approaches, our minds turn to photocopying our bottoms and wallpapering the office with the images. Or snogging the boss after you’ve eaten a mince-pie leaving crumbs in his moustache. So it seems appropriate to bring together some of your more romantic or raunchier posts. It’s taken me a month […]
It’s strange the way each month a theme seems to develop linking a large number of the funny posts suggested to me – without me needing to be all bossy and say well it’s October so I want stuff on conkers and Halloween. And no that’s not this month’s theme, because the themes really […]
Going back to school – it will either make you laugh or make you cry. This post Death by training shoe on It’s a Crazy World should do both. And this is how it was going back to school or nursery for Lisa who blogs at Motherhood or Madness. Be careful what you say to your kids – they […]
SUMMER HOLIDAY EDITION It is the holiday season so I’m kicking off this month’s roundup with the start of a holiday diary from 40yearolddomesticgodess . Wish you were here and all that! I’m hoping the holiday improved and that I never meet the grandma with 27 tattoos! Sarah at Mum of Three World spent her […]
SPECIAL COMMEMORATIVE ROUNDUP To further celebrate the fantastically fun Britmums 2012 and ensure that my fellow nominees in the Laugh category of the awards are known to you all, I’ve decided to use this month’s roundup to highlight the blogs of the 8 finalists in the Laugh category of the Brilliance in Blogging awards. So […]
I thought it would be nice to showcase a few new bloggers this month. Yes I know there’s a separate blog for that, but it’s bizarre how themes kind of create themselves and a lot of the suggestions this time round are from newer bloggers. (I’m not going to say which are which) – and […]
I’m kicking off this month with thoughts about what makes a yummy mummy. It’s something that inspired my own blog so I should obviously declare an interest. For Not a Notting Hill Mum – read not a yummy mummy – here in West London that means I do not have a bugaboo (would be weird […]
This week it’s really all about pictures. I didn’t start with this theme in mind it has just happened – it’s what fellow bloggers found funny this month and I have to agree. This first post is really a gallery of pictures – a very easy read over your morning coffee – the marshmallow outfit […]
The round up for February – and as it’s the month that surrounds Valentine’s day I’m starting with a collection of worst Valentine’s Day experiences put together by Rhodri Marsden who blogs personally and for the Independent http://storify.com/rhodri/worst-valentine-s-day-experiences . Thanks to @alexlondonlife for the tip! Flossing the cat describes her husband’s idea of romance in […]
So how to choose the Top 10 funniest blogposts for BritMums? Well luckily this is a monthly thing so it doesn’t have to be my funniest Top 10 of all time! Pressure off then. My first method was to ask on twitter and facebook for suggestions and submissions and that has proved fruitful and taken […]
