Special Needs Bloggers Thank you to everyone who took part in last month’s SEN round-up linky. It’s always wonderful to browse through new blogs and old favourites, and to see the sheer diversity in the way we write. This too reflects the uniqueness of each of our children, our families and us as parents. Which […]

October’s theme is… there is no theme. I asked you to send me what you are proud of….. My proud moment this month came when I was asked by Whittard of Chelsea to provide some tips on time management for a campaign they were running to encourage people to let their tea brew properly. A […]
What do you get if you take a psychotherapist, two stay at home dads, one of whom likes to write about feminism and a dad that has a thing for laundry bleach? You get the dad bloggers that feature in this month’s round up, that’s what. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s a real autumnal mix. […]
I left you last month with a feeling that Scotland was going to vote Yes. This was purely based on the fact that in my little corner of the blogging world YES was the resounding theme. As you will all know, the answer given by Scotland to the question of independence was NO. I was […]
September has been the month for starting school, and lots of you have packed your children off to a room full of strangers with mixed emotions. Both Mummy Shire and Make me an Earth Mother have written about the start of school. But they’re not, as you might imagine, lamenting the loss of their babies […]
There were so many great recipes left on the linky after September’s Foodie Round up – thank you! As proof that I really do read them all and appreciate every single one, this round-up is mostly dedicated to them. That and Halloween – you have to have a few Halloween recipes in October don’t you? […]
Collating this round-up each month is always enjoyable. I read about amazing places you’ve visited and good food you’ve eaten. I share your adventures and dream about sandy beaches and swish hotel rooms. But travel can often be a time of contemplation. We may visit a destination where we are faced with a country’s history […]
Quite without planning it, there seems to be a bit of theme with this month’s post – we’ve got an awful lot of anxious tweens. Is this a modern phenomenon, or has it always happened? What is it about the tween years that bring these things on? I have no answers, just some very moving […]
Summer has been long and very warm. Usually this time of year it is starting to feel a bit chilly as Autumn sets in, but not this year. As I write this, I am sitting in my back garden, sun hat slanted to one side, sunglasses perched on top and the sun is beaming down […]
This month’s round-up comes at an inbetween stage. It’s rainy old October. The weather’s often too grim to make the great outdoors seem inviting. But even though theatres and cinemas have begun to crank up their shows, there’s still not as much entertainment on offer as there is in the run-up to Christmas. So: what’s […]
Well a very welcome hello from me, I just can’t believe that we are in October already! You’ve all been extremely busy with your home and design posts last month, so I’ve lots to include. I’ve been busy mulling over how to create a more luxurious and relaxing bathroom, but let me share with you […]
I love these WordPress.com widgets that enable you to follow and be followed, and suggest that every sidebar should have them installed. And this is important, because being sociable, friendly and forthcoming, not to mention being nosey, aware and complimentary, is what makes as blog thrive! So today I’m going to talk about how you can invite readers to subscribe […]
There’s something magical about this time of year. Perhaps it’s the early morning mist that adds a layer of intrigue to the rising sun. Or the forest, the smell of pine so strong you can’t help but close your eyes and take a deep breath. Or fruit picking – knowing your efforts will be rewarded […]
As bloggers that is what we all have chosen to do to some extent. We put ourselves out there when we post, even if it is an anonymous sort of putting it out there. Can you remember the fear of posting your first blog post? Perhaps I was the only one that was a bag […]
I love this time of year: the children are back at school and we’re all back into a routine; the ground is covered in crunchy leaves and everything is changing colour. It always makes me want to dye my hair, to fit in! So what have our lovely single parent bloggers been up to since […]
Don’t the Summer holidays seem so long ago? Now the kids are back at school and the parents are back to (blogging) work. But we can’t complain too much as the weather has been very kind and given us Brits a bit of an extended Summer. Over on Kiddy Reviews I have been talking about […]
