I think this has to be my favourite food season of the entire year! Full of sunshine (if we are lucky!), barbecues, picnics, festivals, and pick your own – not to mention birthdays in my house, so of course it means cake too! Let’s start with some Afternoon Tea Inspiration from Beach Hut Cook, I think […]

Looking around at what the dad bloggers have been writing, it’s quite clear most have been enjoying the summer. There are loads of posts about holidays and days out. This one from Tim at Slouching Towards Thatcham caught my eye. It’s his top tips for visiting LegoLand Windsor and, having been last summer with my […]
So how’s it going? How are the children? How are you enjoying the summer holidays? At the moment of writing I am five weeks in and counting the days until school goes back in September but by the time you read this I shall be on our actual Summer Holiday an eight hour flight away and […]
Hello and welcome to the round-up for poetry and prose posted in the month of July and my second stint as Poetry & Prose Editor. Ironically as I was reading more of your work some of you may have seen the post titled Are Too Many People Writing Poetry? doing the rounds. It struck me […]
It’s August so it must be time for another bumper travel round-up. There are lots of bloggers out there posting about their summer holidays so I have tried to include as many as possible to give you lots of inspiration for your future travel plans. I have, for your delight, a couple of yurts, Butlins’ breaks and […]
The summer holidays are well and truly upon us, with many teens and tweens moving on to the next stage of their education. The summer is a time to relax, to look forward and to reflect. When Chasing Dragonflies’ younger daughter had the ‘period talk’ at the end of primary school, it brought back some […]
It’s summer, which means that half the people who read you online are currently offline, and you’re wondering where your stats have gone. For those doing their first summer break with blog – don’t panic! They will all be back. But in the meantime, if you’re going to write, make it short, and make it […]
How glorious has the weather been these past few weeks? What a wonderful start to the kid’s school summer holidays. Even though we have had a few thunderstorms, overall the weather has been lovely hasn’t it, meaning lots of fun in the great outdoors. The park, the beach, the countryside or even the city, being […]
Wow, what an amazing comeback for the BritMums Reviews round-up! Thank you to everyone who submitted a review to share. Between checking out your reviews and staying super-busy with reviews of all sorts over on Kiddy Reviews, I feel I may have neglected my husband somewhat this month! Anyone reviewing anything to help keep on top […]
Welcome to July’s Single Parent Round-up… are you loving the sunshine still? Glasgow Mummy has been ticking things off her “35 by 35 list” – a great idea I think I might have to copy… I’m not sure I’m likely to speak to a famous person any time soon though. I loved the photos in […]
Hello, thanks for stopping by to check out the BritMums Adoption & Fostering Round-Up. How is your summer going? Hot where you are? It’s super hot here at the moment, and we’ve been making the most of the sun by heading into the garden and to the beach. To celebrate summer and provide some inspiration for fun […]
Welcome to July’s health round-up and I hope that you are all enjoying the lovely weather and managing to stay fit and healthy in spite of the heat. I have some very interesting and diverse posts for you this month. My first post is from Aly at Bug Bird Bee where she talks about her […]
Changing your mind is often considered a bit meh. Not the done thing. I don’t understand why. Some days I’m full of the joys of spring and some days I’m knackered and grumpy and as such, cannot guarantee a consistent response. My attitudes vary, my opinions are swayed. I often change my mind, it might […]
Welcome to Good Reads July 2014. Are you feeling the burn of holiday madness or are you still struggling to get your children out of bed for the last few days of school? I always find it hard to decide whether I like holiday or term time more but in this heat I am tempted […]
The online community we are all a part of as bloggers is incredible. We share, support, advise, pull together, collaborate. We motivate each other, pull each other up and drive one another forward. And those in the special needs community feel this even more so, there is always someone who has stepped in your shoes […]
July always feels quite melancholic to me. I am not sure if it’s because of the holidays or because of the summer showers but something makes me love and feel in love, every single july. I love a good walk after a summer rain even if it’s still slightly raining I don’t mind it, walking […]
