The Mother of All Video Round-ups!

This is quite literally the ‘Mother’ of all video round-ups! Not only have we had the most video submissions this month since I started writing these updates, but our theme for March is Mother, Mum, Mummy, Mama, Mom, Mam, whatever your word for it- this one’s about us. Mother’s Day in the UK comes at […]

Style Round-up: Bargains and sales

Christmas is over. We’re spent up to the hilt. BUT…..the beginning of January is always a good time to invest in a few must-have items. If we buy something frivolous but fabulous in the sales, it’s comforting to know we’ve frittered away only half (or less) of the original price. And a wisely judged purchase […]

Health round-up: A look back at 2013

Can you believe it’s nearly the end of 2013 already?! I can’t quite frankly. It seems time goes quicker as each year passes; it honestly feels like yesterday when we were celebrating the beginning of 2013 and welcoming it with open arms, eager to see what the year ahead would bring. But while we look ahead […]

Special Needs Round-up: Live, love, laugh, it’s Christmas

  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 […]

Special needs round-up: Inclusion, awareness, understanding

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 […]

BritMums Blogging Prompts: Pride and Prejudice

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. […]

BritMums Blogger of the Week: Bringing Up Charlie

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 […]

BritMums Blogger of the Week: Mummy’s Little Monkey

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 […]

BritMums Blogging Prompts: Coincidence and Creativity

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 […]

BritMums Blogger of the Week: Geekmummy

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!
