Unless you’ve been living like a hermit lately and steering clear of any type of media (including the social kind), you’ll probably have heard of the measles epidemic that’s made an unwelcome appearance in South Wales. At the time of writing this post, nearly 700 people in Swansea have been diagnosed with measles and Public [...]

Before I get going with my round-up of health-related posts from you lovely lot of bloggers, I have one health tip that I really must pass on this month. Please think long and hard about moving your blog to a self-hosted platform (if you haven’t already) – it can be hazardous to your health! I’ve [...]
Everyone is talking about weighing at the moment. It’s diet this, diet that, fitness this, and fitness that; and it’s driving me nuts. I like cake, my kids like it, so why can’t you all just leave me in peace to eat it? This lady just doesn’t do New Year resolutions for anything; not anymore. [...]
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 [...]
I’ve been in denial for the last few weeks but I can’t ignore it any longer. The Coca-Cola Christmas advert is back on our screens which can only mean one thing – the holidays are coming! Actually, it kind of signifies two things. Yes, Christmas is undoubtedly on its way but also, so are [...]
Well, thank goodness that’s over. Back to writing in coffee shops with a quiet cuppa, not writing while trying to keep an eye on the children as they disappear into an enormous soft play, which is lit only by one bulb covering a building the size of Australia….. I hope all you people had [...]
You may have noticed a pink tinge to most magazines this month with boobs being the talk of the town more than ever. That’s because it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month (although I’m sure you already knew that). Breast Cancer is a serious issue – over 46,000 women and around 300 men are diagnosed with [...]
We made it through the summer. We all survived relatively un-scathed and we live to fight another day; or in my case, flap it away pathetically with both my hands as I tend to fight a bit like a girl.. *horrendous stereotype alert* We can’t pretend it was easy, but I loved having my [...]
In the last month, Olympics fever gripped the nation. Charities make Olympian efforts every day to support people in crisis and to make the world a fairer place. BritMums are linking up charities and bloggers via our charity-matching service. Today, we are giving out virtual medals to just a few of our charity-minded bloggers. [...]
The Olympics countdown is well and truly on – only 8 days to go! Are you looking forward to it? Are you hoping team GB will walk away with a treasure chest full of gold medals? If I’m honest, I’m hoping for an uneventful games. Don’t get me wrong, I’m backing our Olympians all the [...]
