Yet again, it has been a busy old month in the world of SEND. To be honest though, I don’t think there’s ever a quiet month for any of us. The biggest story of the month was probably the mistake made by legal firm Baker Small, when they publicly took to their Twitter account to celebrate what […]

Fitness Round-up: Get out of your comfort zone!

Cannot believe it’s been a month, and it’s time for another fitness round-up. June is a month I consider the start of summer. It’s true that the weather has not been that great, quite a lot of rain, but it has been quite warm so there’s no reason not to get out and keep active, […]

Finance Round-up: Making the most of your money

What would we do if we had unlimited money? Buy a mansion or five? Travel everywhere by private jet? Wear a new outfit everyday?

Under 30 Parents round-up

Under 30 Parents Round-up: Being different

After last month’s Round-up, Beyond the Stereotype, many of you got in touch with posts on how being a younger parent seems to not only allow but in some cases even encourage people to treat you differently.  From snooty mums at coffee mornings to overbearing doctors assuming you’re not up to the job, younger parents seem to have it […]

Current Affairs Round-up: In the news this month

The EU referendum is just a couple of weeks away now. Have you decided which way to vote? I think it is very hard to find unbiased facts, with both sides constantly contradicting each other. I am voting on gut instinct, as are many others I know. One friend on social media suggest we vote […]

Instagram Round-up: How to use Instagram for sponsored work

As bloggers, we have our fingers in several social media pies! The best advice I could give is that you don’t need to be completely active on every single form of social media, it would be impossible and you wouldn’t have much of a life. Choose a couple that work really well for you and […]

LOL Round-up: Life as we know it

It’s life, but not as we know it.   Let me start this month’s round-up with the obligatory caveat that we love our children dearly, would walk to the ends of the earth for them, and wouldn’t have things any other way.  BUT! It’s fair to say that the moment your tiny infant makes their […]
