Last month the spotlight was on Greece but I realised that many of the summer holiday posts you had all been writing were in danger of being missed unless I compiled one of my regular bumper round-ups. There are some great reads here plus lots of suggestions for trips in the UK and beyond, for families of all ages and for all budgets.
Welcome to this month's pick of the best new parenting blogs. Worry is a theme which comes up again and again in blog posts about raising children, and I've found some brilliant posts recently that most parents will identify with.
Apologies for the brief interlude! August is typically the busiest month in the life of an Expat, with summer travel coming to an end and the daily cycle of life in a foreign land beginning all over again.
September is all about going back: Back to School, back to work, back to the normal routine, looking back on a great summer holiday and missing it when the alarm clocks goes off at silly o'clock and it is pouring with rain.
Apologies for being slightly late with this month's SEND round-up; I'm claiming our recent house move as a semi-decent excuse though and hope you will all forgive me.

Autumn is nearly here, and if you are like me, I am already thinking about getting warm and cozy with the interiors in my home. I've been very busy this summer, with a big makeover of my daughter's room, that I really wanted to share with you today.
Here we are again with a roundup of some of the great posts out there on fostering and adoption. We have had a very busy July on The Adoption Social, with our second sore point’s week, this time on contact.
