Kids and Chaos is asking us this week what our strategies are for the sack of sugar that enters the household in the form of Halloween treats. Eat in one go? Eke out over the weeks? Or let the kids have some… It gave me the inspiration for this month’s theme: tricks and treats. [...]

My theme this month is inspiring. From new bloggers inspiring others to cope, to do better, to those who can uplift our spirits with a beautiful photo, as well as new blogs to inspire us to create better blogs… She’s not a new blogger, but Nickie, from Typecast, has new blog Geekalicious which brings together [...]
I’m going to be predictable and start by telling you that I’ve just dropped my children off at school for their first day of the new school year. Although they are not new starters, they still have new beginnings – a new teacher, a new playground, a new school in GG’s case, and so [...]

As a parent blogger, I see lots of like-minded writers talking through their blogs about their children. A child is what defines a parent blog, and it fascinates me to see the huge variation in styles, not only of writing, but of approach to writing about children. Over on the discussion forum this week I [...]
Well here we are, 2012! It only seems a few days ago that it was 2011…um yes well, moving swiftly on… Soon the daffodils will be poking through the ground and with a fresh new year comes a fresh new enthusiasm to many bloggers.
