Welcome to the new BritMums Arts & Culture Round-up. To kick off, I thought I’d gather a collection of posts on a topic close to the hearts of many bloggers: books. Or – more specifically – World Book Day. As well as scouting round the blogosphere, I put out a request for WBD posts and […]

I have been on my toes all week this week, have you? Back to school, back to work, new projects, a groaning inbox and computer mishaps, why does every upgrade have to bring with it a tone of petty problems? I also was led to believe that Spring had sprung this week, were you? A […]
Who loves a good giveaway? I know I do, so now we are going to be rounding up some of the ones that have caught our eyes monthly on Britmums, so that you can enter and hopefully win some goodies for your friends, your little ones, and even you. KiddyCharts have a blog giveaway listing too […]
So the New Year is upon us and for many that means taking a fresh look at our homes and deciding which projects to embark on over the coming year. Maybe you’re feeling adventurous and have a big extension or maybe a bathroom or kitchen renovation project to work on, or maybe you just want […]
Depending what time you read this I could be splashing all over your social media today – you’ve been warned. Today it is my task to get the #teamhonkrelay baton over to Southend in Essex from my hometown of Gravesend in Kent. I shall be cycling the majority of the way – 17 miles to […]
Preparing the perfect roast turkey and Christmas dinner is a challenge even for avid cooks. To get answers, BritMums hung out with Marco Pierre White to quiz him about our most pressing issues. The hangout was sponsored by Lean on Turkey, where you can get tips and inspiration for cooking with fresh turkey, including recipes […]
Well that’s it people, as of midnight you can say goodbye to November and we all step in to the Countdown of The Year. There’s no need for me to remind you, you’re going to be bombarded with it on every single medium possible. Can you believe a school local to me forbid their primary […]
I met with a couple of blogging friends for lunch this week at a shopping centre central to us all and making the most of my time I turned up early to do a bit of Christmas shopping. Now I thought I was ahead of everyone else. As I parked the car I smiled to […]
Have you ever come so close to wanting something it’s almost within reach? Have you ever desired something with your entire heart, soul and being? That is where I am now and today I am going to unashamedly ask for your help. I entered a competition with the Royal Caribbean, they were looking for a […]
Half term draws to an end, Halloween has been partied on down and now we gather wood for Bonfire Night on Tuesday – people I am officially knackered. Can you say cream crackered online without it being classed as a swear word? Do I have the strength to be bothered about it? I didn’t have […]
Yay, I’m a grandma – again! Allow me to welcome into the world little Sophie Rose who was born on Sunday 13th just in time for roast dinner, sadly I haven’t seen her or cuddled her yet as she lives in Italy so I am scouring the net for flights that will fit in with […]
One of my major ‘let’s keep positive’ tactics to help me through the daily humdrum of what can at times become a tiresome life is to have something to look forward to; a date in the diary, somewhere to go, a person to meet up with. It doesn’t have to be exceedingly expensive, it doesn’t […]
Someone once said “it is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in Autumn” – well judging by the amount of linky entries in last month’s Foodie Round Up, we have a lot of green fingered people in this community!! I love this season, and everything about it – […]
It’s October and there’s so much going on, how many of you signed up to go Sober in October? I didn’t I’m afraid. I don’t drink every night of the week but come the weekend it’s my one treat of an evening a glass of wine and I just don’t want to give that up […]
This week saw a birthday in our family but we are countries apart so the celebrations are on hold until November. However invites from our school friends have started to arrive, a bowling party last weekend, a pamper party to come in October and some disco dancing to throw into the mix too. So how […]
Hooray for the weekend again! Isn’t it just the best when the weekend turns up? Is it just me or has life got really hectic since we all hit September? Whilst lying by the pool in August the odd time I did manage to connect to the WiFi I checked emails and thought ‘That sounds […]
What happened to the sunshine? What happened to all the open windows and drying laundry on the washing line? I guess summer is over now which is a shame as I would have loved an Indian summer to draw it out a little longer, you can’t have everything I suppose but there is one thing […]
A couple of times a year, instead of choosing half a dozen travel posts to highlight, I throw the round-up open to everyone and compile a list of blog posts you would like me to mention. It’s a great way for readers to find lots of suggestions for day trips in the UK to far-flung […]
