So here’s the thing: it’s the middle of May and I am sitting wearing a fleece over my, not inconsiderable, layers as I type. I have committed the cardinal sin of putting the heating on because even the dog is shivering. There is a very real chance that summer has been and gone for me. [...]

Hello and welcome to the May Education Roundup. I’ve been doing these Roundups for around a year now and have loved rummaging through a wonderful array of education related posts. But sadly for me this is my last Roundup, the demands of juggling my business and parenting have finally caught up with me! Thank you [...]
It’s Easter so I’ve been crafting! Actually that’s a complete lie, because I am firmly of the “can’t craft, won’t craft” variety, much to my daughter’s disgust. Which is why I read posts from Margot Tries the Good Life only after bedtime, when she can’t see how someone else has managed to create real chocolate [...]
So what’s been happening in the world of videos? What’s new? Me, I’ve been playing with making easy peasy video diaries on a Nexus 7 tablet Idealo offered me to review. The picture quality is great and recording, uploading and embedding it all from one device makes vlogging even easier than writing a post. I’ve [...]
I struggled for a theme this month. What is it that all parent bloggers are talking about right now? What is rocking our world?

Except her children, who have emerged from the festive season wearing an expression of mild surprise… First up, let me tell you my news: I’m planning a new direction. [...]
It’s one year now the BritMums round-ups have been running and we’ve seen so much great content this year, when it came to highlighting it we just couldn’t decide. Luckily we have a stable of talented and plugged-in round-up editors who regularly cherry pick the best posts around. So we asked them to tell us [...]
Hope this find you well. I’ve just been mesmerised watching a video of my five month old nephew‘s first train ride, you know when their eyes go back and forth as they watch the world go by out the window, very funny. He lives a way away and I miss him so much, but [...]
The summer is almost over, and I hope you have been enjoying the summer holidays so far, and that you have managed to read many blog posts and also reviews. I have spent last 3 weeks in the Czech Republic with my family and friends, and we have had a fabulous time together and have [...]
School is nearly over for the year. The summer holidays are almost upon us (more on that another time). And yet, for many parents school is at the forefront of their minds. Children everywhere are visiting schools for the first time this month as they prepare for their induction into the world of formal education. [...]
