I'm always intrigued to know what kind of response I'll have when I put the call out for travel posts with no theme. This month I was delighted to read a variety of fabulous blogs featuring the best of British and beyond.
I feel completely out of whack this month - the weather and the seasons can’t make up their minds, and I’ve just recovered from a horrible bout of sickness. So to continue the inconsistency, the theme for this month’s round-up is:
There's been a lot going on generally over the past couple of months, including a fair amount of sickness in our household unfortunately. So I am delighted to be able to introduce you to a guest host for the round-up this month:
Welcome to this brand new monthly round-up, regular readers of these posts will notice I used to write the Blogging Tips round-up posts however it was time for a little change and there are only so many tips out there which bloggers are sharing/writing about - with this new round-up topic I can now share with you those tips still as well as a few other themes over the coming months. This month I am sharing with you some Twitter tips which are helpful to us bloggers.
Not that I'm trying to make small talk, but haven't we had some beautiful weather over these past few weeks? Spring is just around the corner and it feels wonderful to be able to leave my huge parka coat at home and wear my dainty pink pumps instead of my chunky winter boots.
Welcome to the March edition, the start of spring and warmer weather (hopefully), although I did have ice on my windscreen this morning and some reports of snow! That will not stop us venturing out and exploring all the amazing places our wonderful country has to offer.
January always feels like a clean slate, or a chance to start anew, don't you think? So I am going to dedicate this months blog post to the amazing makeovers that I have found in the blogging community this January.
Christmas seems to be a more private time in our blogging lives - even I didn’t share any of our festivities, which is a shame and something that I definitely need to do this December. There’s so much hard work that goes into making Christmas a happy or festive time in most of our houses and I think this year most of us were quite poorly over Christmas, just like Her Majesty the Queen, and just exhausted!
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.
Negativity is one of those things we can never completely and totally bulletproof ourselves against. On the other hand, by choosing to make somewhat small but significant changes, we can all learn to efficiently and productively counteract its destructive effects from our lives.
For the first few months since I took over the Single Parent Round-up, I have had a theme such as Christmas as a Single Parent and Divorce but for March, I wanted to feature writers that have written about the day-to-day life as a single parent or who may not have written about being a single parent recently at all, as after all, we are not defined by the type of parent that we are. I recently wrote about the worries I have as a parent on my blog, Hannah Spannah.
Pregnancy and childbirth is a truly miraculous thing, and not just the bit about something that big coming out of something that small. But lets face it, pregnancy and childbirth is somewhat embarrassing.
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!
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.
