I have some great home inspiration to share with you this month, home and design lovers. Some great home makeovers and inspiration, as well as a few great ideas I spotted over on Instagram. A fantastic kids room project from the Growing Spaces blog is up first. In order to maximise floor space, this post […]

New bloggers finding their new normal There is something about tragedy and intense periods of stress that changes you forever. There is a process, beginning with shock, sometimes grief, then anger. I’m told that eventually there is acceptance, and transition to a ‘new normal.’ I guess it’s kind of like having your first baby, when although […]
Being organised when planning a holiday might not be that important when you’re young, free and single, but when you have a family in tow, it can mean the difference between the success and failure of a trip. This month I have found a number of great travel checklists provided by experienced family travel bloggers. […]
Despite February being absurdly cold at points I feel Spring may be on the horizon. There are snowdrops in the chicken pen and the daffodils are beginning to poke through up in the woods, reminding me that Mother’s Day isn’t too far in the future. But before Spring is officially here; now that you have […]
It’s been a month of ups and down. I started the month by writing a letter to my 6 month old to celebrate her half birthday. That was a nice moment, which hopefully she’ll enjoy reading in years to come. However, on a downside, this month I’ve learnt weaning isn’t as much fun as the happy […]
Sometimes as a mum it is hard to find the strength to do something for yourself – I know I am a mum of two under 6 and oh my…days can be so hard and tiring sometimes. But once you find the strength to change and start to return to your old self (before babies) things start […]
Hello, me again. I’m here to share some fabulous blog posts by single parents. I love finding new single parent bloggers to follow, and featuring some of their best posts here for others to see. First up is this post by Martyn at Inside Martyn’s Mind. Those three words all parents dread hearing, but I […]
There is still a chill in the air but spring is definitely on the way and it is inspiring to read so many posts about bloggers who are pushing themselves for healthier and happier lives. Kate over at Kate Takes Five has been taking part in an interesting challenge with Change 4 Life. They asked […]
Would you microchip your child? A headline like that is sure to grab your attention, and it sure grabbed mine earlier this month. Of course we shake our heads, we think of the civil liberties denied, the privacy issues and then we immediately think of how a system like this could be misused and abused. […]
Last month I declared 2015 as the ‘Year of the Vlog’ and BritMums bloggers didn’t disappoint! This month you have sent in some fab posts containing video, and lots of them! You can see what you have all been up to below. However before we get there, there is an announcement. I have been speaking […]
Welcome to the first politics round-up of 2015. This should be a fascinating year politically, and as we head towards the general election I am hoping to be able to share the views of plenty of parent bloggers – on the issues that worry them, what they would like from politicians and how they will […]
There are a lot of culinary moments coming up and the most important this week is Valentines Day, if you are looking for some recipe inspiration look no further. February is also a mix of those on a diet, I’m having a go at the 5:2 myself and those indulging in comfort food, I tend […]
I can not believe how cold the weather has been over this past month, until today my remote patch of Essex had managed to dodge the snow that has been falling all over the country. I will be honest, I love the snow and I thoroughly enjoy being out in it. I have been on […]
TS Eliot wrote that April is the cruellest month. But I reckon the toughest weeks of the year lie in February. Cold, dark and gloomy, with the Christmas festivities a dim and distant memory. And author Jay McInerney happens to agree. So there. Everything feels a bit deflated on the arts and culture front this […]
The first month of 2015 has disappeared in a flash as it so often does. What a perfect opportunity therefore to celebrate what’s been making us smile in January. This brilliant photo of Just a Normal Mummy with her ‘Wally Bubbas’ absolutely has to kick-off the Snapshot Round-up. Hard to believe this little man is now six weeks old. Mummy […]
Good news! It’s nearly spring! Oh OK, I might be getting ahead of myself, but Vai Chin at Rambling Through Parenthood thought she spotted the first signs and I’m clinging to the hope that she’s right. I either want winter to cough up some decent, exciting snow or just bid a graceful retreat sharpish. Bearing […]
Christmas and the New Year seem to be a distant memory already but January is definitely the time of year for bloggers to be talking about health. Whether it is the coughs, colds and other unwanted bugs that come with the colder weather or a new healthy regime to start the New Year, there have […]
On being a parent. The journey of a parent is an eventful one. If you’re lucky it starts with a small blue line (if you’re not, it can start much earlier in various angst-inducing ways), but for all of us it is a journey. Of course, the first thing you have to do when you […]
