This month’s dad blog round up is not what I planned. I was going to trawl the Internet for blog posts all about Christmas. To my surprise, I struggled to find any. For whatever reason, us dad bloggers just don’t seem to be in the Christmas spirit yet! In the absence of Christmas-themed blogs, here […]

OXO are convinced that their new range of Herbs & More flavour pots are so easy to use that they wanted to see mums let their little Kitchen Magicians do the cooking for once.

One of the best childhood activities is building dens. Children enlist their creativity and sense of fun to construct a castle, a cave, or other private space that’s theirs alone.

I few months ago I travelled around Costa Barcelona, the area in Barcelona province near the city, to discover the fabulous getaways that are within easy reach via a day trip. When you venture a bit outside the city, you can take in a multitude of experiences that suit families particularly well because of the […]
Children have amazing imaginations. So how as parents do we encourage them to use it to become more independent and creative? With summer holidays nearly here, how do we encourage them in creative play rather than tablet computer hypnosis? We’re thrilled to announce our #PlaytheHero Hangout on Tuesday 8 July at 12:00 with psychologist, author […]

We recently had a health scare with Elizabeth, our youngest daughter. I’d received a phone call from her nursery to be told she was presenting some very worrying symptoms. The staff thought it could be very serious indeed but a fraught dash to our GP for an emergency appointment proved it was, thankfully, a false […]
Perhaps it’s a New Year’s resolution thing, but every bad mum in the UK appears to have turned over a new leaf or chosen to go underground since the last time I did my badly neglected bad mums round-up. As I trawled the BritMums members community, Twitter and other online hunting grounds to unearth fellow […]
Indian cooking is a great vegetarian cuisine, with loads of spices and tastes to liven up lentils and amp up okra. BritMums hung out with Anjum Anand, the Indian chef with a load of books, TV shows and products to her name, including a new line of chutnis (spelled the Hindi way) to use as […]

There’s a question I’m often asked by mums when they discover I’m the main carer for our two daughters. The words vary slightly, but it goes something like this; “Is it hard looking after two children compared to having a full time job?” I’ve been asked this question many times and yet I still […]
