Bumps & Babies Round-up: Introducing a new baby, milestones & a rainbow baby

I’ve loved 2017 so far and wholeheartedly jumped on the positivity/ New Resolutions bandwagon. The chance to shake off all the bad habits developed last year and start afresh. Maternity leave ended for me a few weeks ago so it was a double new beginning. During my nine months off or “holiday” as my husband jokes […]

Dads Round-up: The rise of the stay-at-home dad

Their number is small but growing. Dads who eschew the traditional role of bread-winner in favour of staying at home are on the rise.

Expat Round-up: Tales from the frontline

“The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.” ~ Maya Angelou Last week it snowed. Just gently, as though someone had given the streets a generous dusting of icing powder. Then it rained, turning the powder into puddles of ice. […]

Current Affairs Round-up: Mental wellness

January was Mental Wellness Month and so I requested posts about this issue. I’m sad at the overwhelming response: seems it’s prevalent – and it’s not going away, with many parenting bloggers having stories to share on the subject. I shouldn’t be surprised really, according to The Independent, nearly a quarter of new mother’s will […]

I have the […]

Travel Round-up: Fabulous France

When I think back to all the holidays we had when our son was younger, France featured very heavily. Whether it was a busy city break or a relaxing camping trip, France was the perfect destination for a family holiday.

Teens & Tweens Round-up: Waiting for Independence Day!

The transition from child to adult starts with the tweens, perhaps around the age of ten. It stops whenever you feel your child becomes an adult. Legally, of course, that is at 18 years of age. Yet we all know many people in their mid-twenties (and much older) that we would hesitate to refer to […]

Positively Inspirational Round-up: Kindness, children & philosophy

I wanted to start off my first Britmums Round-up with a quote, an illustration of what this category encompasses and the power in the words POSITIVELY INSPIRATIONAL.   Mother Teresa famously said “If you want to change the world, go home and love your family”.  Wise, strong and insightful words that suit this round-up so well.
