Well, I’ve been getting my craft […]

This monthly travel round-up hopefully provides you with lots of inspiration for future holidays or days out. Last month was a bumper crop: plenty of destinations to choose from. This month is no different but I’d like to start with some posts which are a little more generic, covering travel issues rather than specific places. […]
That’s it, summer is nearly over and I am packing my bags and returning to the UK to get ready for the Back to School time of year. I hope you all had a wonderful summer I’m sure you must have written something about it so please add your My Best Post of The Week […]
I have a confession, in August I am the worst blogger. Does anyone blog in August? Of course, they do. Don’t they? Having largely failed to visit other blogs (as a good blogger should) I’ve very little idea. Is anyone reading this? *knocks on screen*. I’m rubbish at blogging in August. It’s my ‘slow’ month, […]
Ever since Jan and Dean dubbed it “Surf City USA,” Huntington Beach has lived up to the name. With 10 miles of sandy beaches (there are five to choose from) and “endless summer” temperatures consistently in the 70s, it’s a classic Californian surf town perfect for catching a wave. It’s also a fab one-stop destination for families wanting a base […]
As I explained last week I am currently on holiday and (hopefully as I writing and scheduling this post in advance) having a fantastic time but for those of you who have returned or stayca’ed this year then then please find the BritMums #MBPW below to add your favourite writing from the past week to.

It’s almost the middle of August! Shall we wave goodbye to the summer and prepare for autumn? I say…NO! The time for the ugly weather will be long so let’s just enjoy the sunshine – well if you are not in London where it’s raining for the rest of the week. Most of you are […]
If there’s one good idea I had this summer holiday it was to buy tickets for a tour of Buckingham Palace with the children. There are a few different tickets available and I chose the State Rooms and Gardens Highlight Tour. (£63.75 for 1 adult and 2 children ordered from The Royal Collection) My twins are 6 […]
Hooray for Summer Holidays, eh? Or… you know… er… This month’s round-up is a little early, and also a tad slimmed-down as everyone is off on hollibobs and having a well deserved rest. I don’t know about you, but the Summer holidays are one of those times when it really notices that I’m a single […]
The school holidays are here and blogging takes a back seat for most of us, or at least changes tack, pace and content. But how DO you feel about the long stretch of holiday? Are you pleased that the pressure is off, or does your child prefer a routine to stick to? Do you relish […]
I think this has to be my favourite food season of the entire year! Full of sunshine (if we are lucky!), barbecues, picnics, festivals, and pick your own – not to mention birthdays in my house, so of course it means cake too! Let’s start with some Afternoon Tea Inspiration from Beach Hut Cook, I think […]
Looking around at what the dad bloggers have been writing, it’s quite clear most have been enjoying the summer. There are loads of posts about holidays and days out. This one from Tim at Slouching Towards Thatcham caught my eye. It’s his top tips for visiting LegoLand Windsor and, having been last summer with my […]
So how’s it going? How are the children? How are you enjoying the summer holidays? At the moment of writing I am five weeks in and counting the days until school goes back in September but by the time you read this I shall be on our actual Summer Holiday an eight hour flight away and […]
Ohhhh, we have a storm on the way and for some reason I’m a little bit excited about that. Fortunately it’s been downgraded from a hurricane and I hope no damage is done over the country but it will shake up the system a bit and my garden needs watering! It has been so dry […]
Now we’re in the holiday season, we mustn’t neglect our blog posts. I know it’s difficult keeping up with your blogging if the kids are constantly under your feet, or need to be closely supervised to make sure they don’t burn the house down, or poison Granny’s tea when your back is turned. Well, the […]
Hello and welcome to the round-up for poetry and prose posted in the month of July and my second stint as Poetry & Prose Editor. Ironically as I was reading more of your work some of you may have seen the post titled Are Too Many People Writing Poetry? doing the rounds. It struck me […]
