Snapshot Round-up: Making the most of half-term

There’s an infectious vibe surrounding the half-term period. It’s wonderful to see the BritMums community really make the most of it whether having fun here or venturing overseas.  Kicking off this month’s crop of photographic gorgeousness is The Boy And Me with this gem taken at Oxwich Bay. They absolutely picked the perfect day for a barbeque and sandcastles.  Also beach bound […]

Dad blogger round up – dads at BritMums Live

I’m going to take a slightly different approach to this month’s dad blogger round up. You see BritMums Live is almost upon us and each year a tiny percentage of attendees has X Y chromosomes. I thought I’d introduce you to the dads I know will be in attendance. Firstly though, why do dads go […]

Snapshot Round-up: Sunshine

How great is it to have some sunshine? It’s almost as if we’ve woken up from a long slumber and realised it’s time to play! The lighter evenings are wonderful and provide us with the perfect opportunity to fire up the BBQ, sample ice-cream or grab a cheeky Pimm’s. Long may these warmer climes and our love […]

Dad blogger round up: New school term

First of all, an apology from me. I’m a little late in providing this month’s dad blogger round up. I am sure many of you will relate to the reasons why; the Easter holidays. With the beginning of the new school term and the youngest back in the routine of having afternoon naps, I have […]

Snapshot Round-up: Spring

There’s something special about this time of year. Whether it’s birds chirping, lambs bleating or blossom appearing, we certainly have a spring in our step. Perhaps it’s the warmer weather and looking up to see the brightest of blue skies. One things for sure, we really love Spring.  Kicking off the Snapshot Round-up this month is Globalmouse with […]

Humour Round-up: A dose of hilarity

Welcome back, ye faithful followers of jocund hilarity. The success of the first humour round-up means I am back with a second instalment of the funnies. Goodness knows we need it!  The fickle spring sunshine still has most of us layered in woollies as we cough, sneeze and splutter our way through the grind of daily life. There is nothing […]

Snapshot Round-up: Half-term fun

There’s always such enthusiasm in the BritMums community when half-term arrives. It provides the perfect opportunity to get out, blow away the cobwebs and have some good old fashioned fun!  It was quite a task choosing photographs for the Snapshot round-up this month, so many of you really made the most of your break! It’s brilliant to see so many heading […]

Publishing a book – what I’ve learned

I’ve just published my first ever book. It’s called A modern father (…and dad blogger) and it focuses on my life as a stay at home dad. As the title suggests, however, I couldn’t resist writing just a little about being a dad blogger. Getting the book into print has taken over my life and […]

Snapshot Round-up: New Year Delights

The first month of 2015 has disappeared in a flash as it so often does. What a perfect opportunity therefore to celebrate what’s been making us smile in January. This brilliant photo of Just a Normal Mummy with her ‘Wally Bubbas’ absolutely has to kick-off the Snapshot Round-up. Hard to believe this little man is now six weeks old. Mummy […]

Dad Blogger Round-up: New year, new blog posts

It’s a new year, but I’m going to kick off this dad blogger round up with an old favourite; Frozen. I don’t know about you, but I am staggered by the runaway success of this Disney blockbuster. Even so, it is easy to understand why it has proved so popular. My kids both love it, […]

Snapshot Round-up: Happy Holidays

It’s that wonderful time of year when the parenting community takes a break from routine and adopts the role of magic maker. There’s nothing better than seeing the happiness of a child when they’re decorating a tree, visiting Father Christmas or relishing in Christmas Day itself. This month’s Snapshot Round-up is all about the holidays and capturing joy. Kicking us off is […]

Snapshot Round-up: Capturing Light

We love the warm glow that Autumn brings. Even with a chilly undertone, it’s a favourite time of year for many. While the trees cling to the last of those leaves, we see the light change. The lush green fields resemble postcards and the sky brings a brightness we crave come the end of the day. […]

Good Reads: East Enders, the Telegraph and Ello

The great decline to Christmas has begun now that Halloween is over. The Ads are all over the TV, the Strictly Come Dancing Contestants have been whittled down to the serious contenders, and there is debate on social media about what will be Christmas Number One. As someone who has a birthday at the end […]

Dad’s Round-up: An autumnal mix

What do you get if you take a psychotherapist, two stay at home dads, one of whom likes to write about feminism and a dad that has a thing for laundry bleach? You get the dad bloggers that feature in this month’s round up, that’s what. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s a real autumnal mix. […]

Snapshot Round-up: Embracing Autumn

There’s something magical about this time of year. Perhaps it’s the early morning mist that adds a layer of intrigue to the rising sun. Or the forest, the smell of pine so strong you can’t help but close your eyes and take a deep breath. Or fruit picking – knowing your efforts will be rewarded […]

Dad round up; the delights of summer

Looking around at what the dad bloggers have been writing, it’s quite clear most have been enjoying the summer. There are loads of posts about holidays and days out. This one from Tim at Slouching Towards Thatcham caught my eye. It’s his top tips for visiting LegoLand Windsor and, having been last summer with my […]

Dad Round-up: Hear it for the boys

Hello and welcome to my first-ever BritMums dad blogger round-up. I’ve been given the daunting task of taking over from the amazing Spencer, who has moved on to other things (I’ll come on to what Spen’s doing shortly). It’s been quite a month for us dad bloggers. Four of the better known chaps, working collectively […]
