We have had a fair bit of warm weather over the past month, I can tell because the garden has gone crazy! The grass is needing mowing much more frequently, and the weeds grow before my very eyes, our tomato and chilli plants are growing nicely, although the beans and peas are struggling with the slugs and snails.
Heatwaves, Glastonbury and LOTS of political talk — June was certainly a busy month this time round wasn't it? I'm a bit of a summer scrooge and already looking forward to the cooler autumnal months (just 4 months to get those Halloween costumes nailed guys!
For many of us last week saw us spring into action as our children returned to school for the new term. This was not the case for all parents as a growing number choose to educate their children at home.
The summer holidays are flying by aren't they? I don't know about you but my mind is already starting to wander towards the start of the new term, making sure they are kitted out with new uniform and everything else they will need for the first day.
With the school term now in full swing it's only right that we have nosed through your blogs and instagram accounts to see who has been rocking the school gate look. We know that you are all super stylish anyway but you all seem to have gone up a notch looking stunning on the school run.
There was a lot of love for the Blue theme in the BritMums community this month, not just from overseas trips during the school holidays but here in Blighty too. Don't forget if you enjoy taking photographs, you can also join in with #SnapHappyBritMums over on Instagram.
Hello and welcome back to the U30s Round-Up! Amie and Hannah (your hosts) took a couple of months off to reassess what the U30s community really wanted and needed from this Round-up and we hope you agree we've come up with a winning formula.
The summer holidays are over and for those of us with school-age children it's time to send them through the gates to start another academic year. How have my fellow dads whiled away those long summer days and kept the kids entertained?
The post I’ve chosen to feature from the post-40 bloggers’ community this month is by Lara Slater from Life and Love in London. There is little to add to Lara’s terrifying lucidity in her post about the London incident at Borough Market.
This month we have been inundated with theatre, it has really become a favourite past-time for many, and I am no exception, I love all the different genre, from ballet to rock band stories, there really is something for everyone, and the great part is, it can be enjoyed alone, as a couple or an entire family. Arts & Culture covers much more than just theatre, so don't worry we haven't forgotten the castles and the museums, I just love the diversity of the subject.
I thought I would try something a little different this month, and include some of the places that inspire interior bloggers. Because not only do we want to see the makeover that you are doing, but learning all the cool places people get inspired and buy things for their home.
I know it’s definitely not party weather here in Hampshire with all of the rain we’ve been having, and so I’m feeling happy that we managed to enjoy our boys’ triple birthday celebration with only a little bit of drizzle this year! This year our theme was Maui from Disney’s Moana.
Britmums bloggers know how to celebrate, and that extends to their pets too! So whether you're looking for inspiration for a birthday party for your four-legged friend or some gift ideas for their birthday, or a special treat just to let them know you love them, then look no further.
Social media is a great free online tool which means when some guy calls you up asking you to advertise in your local rag for actual money you might gasp and think it's incredibly expensive and not for you. You might be surprised that even in 2017 print advertising should still play a role in your marketing What is the difference between marketing and advertising?
This summer we didn't get the gorgeous weather we had all hoped for, struggling with high winds and rain, but it didn't seem to stop the fun. My family and I did get the chance to jet off to Walt Disney World though which was amazing!
This month I want to talk about term-time holidays - it’s one that does or will affect every one of us, after all. On April 6th the Supreme Court ruled against Jon Platt - and there was a lot of strong feeling about the result.
Hello, and welcome back to the Single Parent Round-up. I love writing this Round-up and sharing posts from our community but I think it's hard to get a good feel for the wonderful bloggers I feature and so with permission from Britmums, I have decided that alongside the usual Round-up format that we know and love, I will also choose a single parent blogger to feature in the Blogger Highlight.
We were lucky when my girls were young and seemed to get a few weeks of snow every winter, but over the last few years snow has been sadly lacking. That hasn't stopped us from keeping our fingers crossed and even though Spring is just around the corner, we're still hoping that a last minute flurry of snow might pay a visit!
The long summer holiday has only just started and many of you will struggle to stick to your fitness routines thanks to lack of childcare. I will be on a beach holiday in Turkey when you will be reading this, and have packed my running trainers as every time we go on holiday, and will be making sure I stay well hydrated!
It’s the last BritMums breastfeeding round-up of 2016; what a year it’s been. I think it’s fitting to wrap it up with some of our breastfeeding highlights, especially after sharing some of our frustrations last month.
