Welcome to the new look, jazzed up, easier to navigate Britmums site. You might notice we’ve renamed this Round-up, calling it Special Needs rather than SEN as that seemed to widen the umbrella a little. I find myself simply run off my feet at this time of year with so many wonderfully exciting projects, all [...]

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 [...]
So “It’s Christmas time… there’s no need to be afraid” .. This time round there’ll be no tales of sexual exploits or frightening episodes involving anything purple. If you don’t know what I’m talking about then read last month’s sex and romance LOL roundup here on Britmums. The idea this month was that there [...]
As the Christmas party season approaches, our minds turn to photocopying our bottoms and wallpapering the office with the images. Or snogging the boss after you’ve eaten a mince-pie leaving crumbs in his moustache. So it seems appropriate to bring together some of your more romantic or raunchier posts. It’s taken me a month [...]
Attachment. A very key word to any parent but not least for any adoptive parent or foster parent. Attachment forms the basis of the parent-child bond.

Awesome Journey… As this post goes live today I am taking possibly the most exciting journey of my life. Today I am travelling with Jen Howze to Ethiopia with the ONE campaign. Jen and I will be privileged to meet mothers in another continent, living in very different conditions to us and we will [...]
Back to shool, back to routines, and for some of us it’s the time to start a bit of Christmas shopping. Whatever online shopping you’re doing this autumn, did you realise you can click a donation (and it’s not even your money!) to a charity of your choice every time you shop online? Here’s how [...]
It’s been a few weeks since we returned from our summer holiday in Sweden and I’m still writing about it, bit by bit, on my blog. I don’t blog while I’m actually away. I like to keep a notebook and scribble things down, save leaflets, brochures, highlight things in guide books. It makes for [...]
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. [...]
I never like to start on a serious note, but this absolutely deserves it. Since my last health round-up, I’m sure you will all be aware that Kerry (AKA Multiple Mummy) has been taken very seriously ill. I think it’s fair to say that the news sent shockwaves through the parent blogging community because of [...]
