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 [...]

Welcome to my first round-up of 2013. Remember to leave a comment or join in the linky at the bottom if you’d like one of your posts included in next month’s round-up. For all of us, whatever our faith, background or ideals, a new year is a time to think about new beginnings. It [...]
Happy New Year one and all! Welcome to the first health round-up of 2013 and boy, it’s a bumper edition this month. We ended 2012 with the sad news that Kerry (Multiple Mummy) had passed away shortly before Christmas. The #Healing4Kerry twitter and blog event that had been organised by New Mum Online last [...]
This is it, people, 2013. We survived the end of the World and the Christmas Binge and the repeats on TV. We’ve stepped over the threshold of a New Year. Even better, the schools have gone back, and routines that had been abandoned for the past fortnight (in my case nearly a month) are back [...]
Everyone is talking about weighing at the moment. It’s diet this, diet that, fitness this, and fitness that; and it’s driving me nuts. I like cake, my kids like it, so why can’t you all just leave me in peace to eat it? This lady just doesn’t do New Year resolutions for anything; not anymore. [...]
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 [...]
As 2012 – the Jubilee year with a phenomenal summer of sport – draws to an end, we have another Royal celebration to look forward to next year…the birth of a Royal baby! Of course, pregnancy isn’t always easy and, as parents, I am sure we all sympathise with HRH The Duchess of Cambridge [...]
It’s strange the way each month a theme seems to develop linking a large number of the funny posts suggested to me – without me needing to be all bossy and say well it’s October so I want stuff on conkers and Halloween. And no that’s not this month’s theme, because the themes really [...]
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 [...]
SPECIAL COMMEMORATIVE ROUNDUP To further celebrate the fantastically fun Britmums 2012 and ensure that my fellow nominees in the Laugh category of the awards are known to you all, I’ve decided to use this month’s roundup to highlight the blogs of the 8 finalists in the Laugh category of the Brilliance in Blogging awards. So [...]
