Golly the year has got off at a pace! I’m already cruising towards February and feeling every bit as cold and damp as the weather. I do hope that Christmas brought you all your heart desired. At the very least I hope you and your sanity survived in a better state than our car, which […]

As we hurtle towards 2014 there is still little chance to sit and reflect on 2013 which will, I imagine, be remembered above all else as the year that the World mourned the loss and celebrated the life of Nelson Mandela. There is nevertheless much to be cheerful about, much to be grateful for, much […]
The five year old says Santa isn’t real. I tell him this is rocky ground – that Father Christmas deals not with those who disbelieve. Elves – sharp of eye and ear – hear and see it all. Walk the walk and talk the talk – or Christmas morning shall be bleak indeed. He back tracks […]
Can anyone tell me where this year is going? I couldn’t believe it when the latest Strictly series started because it signalled the beginning of Christmas. Eeek! Anyhow, I won’t hang around banging on about all that I have to do before Christmas, which is a mere six weeks away. Instead, forget about the ‘C’ […]
I’ve got a little confession to make…. I totally forgot about this until our lovely editor Mari came chasing me up yesterday. I know that life is good for me right now as I rarely forget anything, I’m always the queen of organised but just recently I have been so busy just getting out […]
I’m really thrilled to have been asked by Michelle to job share her monthly round ups for the Positively Inspirational Round-up’s. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading through so many inspirational posts over the past few months and I’m looking forward to my new role. October seems to have all of a sudden crept up on […]
In the past year I have come across quite a few new blogs who have been started by mums to review products only. I have nothing against it, but I know there are some bloggers who don’t like that type of blogs. I personally think people should do what is right for them, and if […]
I am adopting a slightly different approach to this months round-up and taking a closer look at the BiBs shortlist in the commentary category. Politics can mean many things beyond simply the activity of those in parliament, and the thing that binds all of the nominees in this category together is a desire to improve […]
I’m sat here in my dining room with the patio doors open and I’m looking out to newly bloomed flowers, fresh green grass and a bright sun, what is not to like? It feels very easy to write the Positively Inspirational round-up this month, Spring is here and that in itself is a reason to […]
A blank canvas It’s been a good month for positive posts. I think there is something about the start of the year that people see as a blank canvas and feel optimistic about what might lay ahead. Quite quickly I found a few posts that I wanted to link to in this round-up, like […]
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 […]
My photography studio has taken a lot of photos at Santas’ Grottos this year — A LOT. I wish I could show you all the photos of crying children that we have accumulated. Quite frankly, they are hilarious (including one of my own daughter on I Carried a Watermelon). I guess parents around the […]
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmaaaaasssss. Aren’t you just a little excited? No? Well, obviously not: there are just days until the schools break up so you need to make the most of your time alone. So forget about Christmas cards and wrapping presents and queuing in the Post Office to pick up a parcel that […]

Hello all, thanks for coming back and joining me this month. Are you busy already, starting to get organised for Christmas? As you read this I’ll be getting our trees up at home and the kids will be having fun decorating their own tree with the ‘more is more’ ethos. I keep mentioning to […]
You might have realised there was no review round-up last month, and the reason behind it? I had to fly to the Czech Republic to be with my family as my dad was at the hospital. Anyway, I am not here to talk about that, but to present you a huge variety of review posts […]
Hello and welcome to this months Education Roundup. As the weather takes us deeper into autumn and the leaves come tumbling down, I thought I’d start off this month’s Roundup with a look at some learning through play activities that can be done in the home. I’ll kick off with this lovely post from Emma […]
Another week has gone by and we’re now in October, how quickly has this year shot by? First mention this week goes to our lovely Jen Howze who’s off to Ethiopia today with the equally lovely Michelle Pannel for the ONE campaign, they’ll be keeping in touch with us over the next week, connection permitting, […]
