Well, like it or not, Christmas is only just over a month away so it’s time to break out the craft box and start making festive treats. Last year I made Edible Reindeer Poop as class gifts for my daughter’s school mates, and this year I’m planning on doing sparkly reindeer food to sprinkle on […]

Arts & Culture Round-up: Looking forward, looking back

November is a month of remembrance. This month, several bloggers have been looking back in history, and taking inspiration from commemoration. At 11am on the 11th day of this month, I was sitting in a cafe with my son, who was recovering from a trip to hospital. The radio quietened and people stopped their chatter; […]

Special needs round-up: Telling our unique life stories

A story that had the power to divide Divide in a way that I have never witnessed since becoming a ‘special needs’ Mum seven years ago. One outspoken woman has divided our community and perhaps set back society’s acceptance of our ‘differently abled’ children by decades. A mother, Gill, went public with her assertions that […]

Blog Giveaway Round-up: Charity and chocolate

We are a little earlier this month. We decided that we were missing out on far too many giveaways because they ended at the close of the month, so it seemed wise to give us all more time to enter; so here we are again, only a few weeks after the last update. However, all […]

Politics round-up: Equality in Parliament and austerity bites

Did you know that women make up 51% of the population but 77% of MP’s are men? I wrote about the lack of women in politics a few months ago and wondered what could be done to encourage more women to get involved. I am not sure how best to achieve balance, but I do […]

November Foodie Round-up: Winter warmers

The mountains are already covered with snow down here in Bavaria, there’s no turning back. Winter’s here and I like to think I am ready for once (perhaps!). The snow tyres are on the car, two sets of new school snow boots are ready for the kids, and there’s a fresh stack of wood for […]

Us dad bloggers can be a reflective bunch. Over the past few weeks I’ve seen quite a few blog posts from dads pondering deeply on various things they have done or experienced.

Mental Health Round-up: SAD, Invisible Illnesses and Speaking Out

First things first, I know, I know, the Mental Health Round-up went a bit AWOL there for a few months, didn’t it? I can only offer this post as my reason – Circles – and leave it there. Blogging’s taken a back seat now, as I attempt to work out how to properly deal with Stuff […]

Newbie Tuesday roundup: New babies!

Ten years ago last week, I was a new mother for the very first time. It was a much anticipated, sorely fought for, and quite frankly mind-blowing time! And so began not just a chapter, but a whole sequel novel of my life. I had a throwback to my past last week when I read […]

Travel Round-up: Turning travel diaries into blogs

Before blogging came along, travellers who wanted to record their experiences would write a diary. It’s how I started my own blog, scribbling in a notebook to remember my family’s holidays. Of course, only those diaries which made it to print would ever be seen by the general public. There must be thousands of personal […]
