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 […]

Hello and welcome to my first-ever BritMums dad blogger round-up.

Four of the better known chaps, working collectively […]

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 […]

  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 […]
