We are hurtling through December and for many it’s a time to prepare for Christmas, often in a stressful flurry. For others it’s a time of peaceful reflection and rest. But however you celebrate Christmas, either with big parties, church celebrations or small family gatherings, or not at all, the December holidays are a time [...]

Standing back and viewing this month as a blogger, a parent of a child with Down’s Syndrome and a BritMums Editor I have to say it has been a month of extremes. The pendulum has swung wide and free across our world of disability, reaching wonderful new ground-breaking highs of inclusion, only to swing seemingly [...]
Instead of Blogger of the Week this week, I’ve decided to shine the spotlight on the great wide blogosphere to celebrate bloggers and blogging! Join me in a round of applause and a “WHOOP WHOOP” for some pretty amazing bloggers… First of all, BEST of luck to all of the Bloggers up for MAD Blog [...]
I apologise for the tardiness of the blogging prompts today. You see, my Little Miss went to her first day of Reception today so I’ve been busy being a Mummy. What a great morning it was, as well! Ella was so thrilled and excited that her father and I couldn’t help but be the same. [...]
I sit in my lounge typing and I only have one child in need of my mothering today. My daughter Ella is off to school. Well, not quite Reception as her Reception class doesn’t begin until Monday so today Ella is at her old preschool again. But Monday begins my redundancy as far as Ella [...]
This week as many of us are preparing to send our children back to school (or maybe to school for the first time), a lovely family will be starting school in a new country! Cathy Powell, an Australian mum and blogger, will be sending her children to their first year in school in England after [...]
So here we are…the last week of the Summer Holiday for many of us while the Scottish bloggers amongst us are sticking out their tongues at us as they’ve been back to school for 2-3 weeks! Between the last minute uniform buying, ironing (Seriously??? Do I HAVE to iron??), labelling and lunchbox planning, I’d like [...]
Summer holiday is drawing to a close. School uniform shopping is in high swing and thoughts are turning to lunchboxes, play dates and after school sporting activities. So much to do and now, so little time left! This week’s blog prompts, therefore are about learning lessons and highlighting your best bits of the Summer Holiday. [...]
The blogging world can be a lovely place. You meet new people, form friendships, support each other and always have a shoulder to cry on. Social media allows you to reach out without having to actually be able to physically reach someone and that can be a very powerful thing when you’re feeling lost and [...]
By my calculation, there are 2 and a bit weeks of Summer Holiday remaining before we plop our children in their pristine (for one day) school uniforms and slide into a more normal routine for the rest of the school year. Some of our beloved Scottish bloggers have already seen their children off for their [...]
I don’t know about you but this week I’ve had to become reacquainted with the rest of the channels on my television. It’s been refreshing to have more than 2 channels to watch but I’ve also missed the pomp and circumstance of the Olympics. Every so often I make Ella stand up on a box, [...]
Does anyone else have a post-Olympic hangover today? 16 days of brilliant sporting prowess, gold medals, celebrations and brilliant weather for it all! London did the World proud, I say! It’s hard to let it all go, though. We’ve all been revelling, cheering, singing along to “God Save the Queen” and ignoring Cbeebies. We thought [...]
We’re here again showing the blogosphere how much we love our BritMums Roundup editors. BritMums is a community of bloggers who are so talented and generous. Our Roundup editors turn out monthly recommendations that are first-rate. You won’t want to miss out on a thing so be sure to follow the RSS feed for all [...]
It’s time for the 4th month of #SnapHappyBritMums themes…are you ready for some creative photo taking? We’ve noticed that interest may be waning a bit for everything blogging related but the GREAT thing about #SnapHappyBritMums is that you can dip in and out of it as you like. They are simply “prompts” to get you [...]
Well, here we are all glued to the television watching amazing athletes who are working their little hearts out to attempt to bring home the gold. Or silver. Or bronze. Isn’t it amazing to finally see all of the work of the last 7 years culminate in what 27 million of us witnessed on Friday [...]
The BritMums Blog is a site chok-a-block of talent and amazing bloggers. We’ve been fortunate to have so many generous and creative bloggers working with us to bring the blogging community the latest and greatest and pointing our audience in new directions. In order to highlight the growing niches in the BritMums community we have [...]
Summer is HERE! For most of us, the kids are off school, the sun is shinning (FINALLY…don’t say it too loudly, we might frighten it) and happiness is in the air! Sad that’s it nearly the end of July and we’re only JUST getting our Summer but let’s not be bitter (grumble, grumble). At any [...]
Friday! We’ve reached the end of another rainy, pooey, miserable week in the UK. We’re one week closer to the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremonies and we’re only hours away from the official start of the Summer Holidays (of course Scotland, you’re already there aren’t you?). Here’s hoping that the rain of the last 10 [...]
