New bloggers finding their new normal There is something about tragedy and intense periods of stress that changes you forever. There is a process, beginning with shock, sometimes grief, then anger. I’m told that eventually there is acceptance, and transition to a ‘new normal.’ I guess it’s kind of like having your first baby, when although […]
Receiving and sending things for Mother’s Day is a real joy. Now imagine how much easier it would be if you didn’t have to wait around for the postman for deliveries or if you could send returns at a convenient time for you. At the #MothersDayDoddle Twitter party, we’ll be talking about the things you […]
Hello everyone, how has the week been for you? Mine has been manic but as busy as I have been all week I don’t seem to have completed any particular task, I enter the weekend with lots of half jobs to complete. Oh and I must apologise for going AWOL last week, half term saw […]
It’s been a month of ups and down. I started the month by writing a letter to my 6 month old to celebrate her half birthday. That was a nice moment, which hopefully she’ll enjoy reading in years to come. However, on a downside, this month I’ve learnt weaning isn’t as much fun as the happy […]
At the weekend, I did something that I found really scary. I am the Queen of Self Doubt, but hell, sometimes it’s good to put yourself out there. “Feel the fear and do it anyway” to quote Susan Jeffers. I spoke at a blogging conference about working with brands. Now, I am no expert at […]
Sometimes as a mum it is hard to find the strength to do something for yourself – I know I am a mum of two under 6 and oh my…days can be so hard and tiring sometimes. But once you find the strength to change and start to return to your old self (before babies) things start […]

Hello, me again. I’m here to share some fabulous blog posts by single parents. I love finding new single parent bloggers to follow, and featuring some of their best posts here for others to see. First up is this post by Martyn at Inside Martyn’s Mind. Those three words all parents dread hearing, but I […]
There is still a chill in the air but spring is definitely on the way and it is inspiring to read so many posts about bloggers who are pushing themselves for healthier and happier lives. Kate over at Kate Takes Five has been taking part in an interesting challenge with Change 4 Life. They asked […]
Would you microchip your child? A headline like that is sure to grab your attention, and it sure grabbed mine earlier this month. Of course we shake our heads, we think of the civil liberties denied, the privacy issues and then we immediately think of how a system like this could be misused and abused. […]
Frozen food goes way beyond fish fingers. Frozen food ingredients range from quick-frozen vegetables, fruits, fish and meats to spices and herbs – ingredients you can use in all kinds of dishes, and with lots of benefits. Quick-freezing locks in freshness and nutritional goodness and frozen food help reduce waste by lasting longer in the […]
Last month I declared 2015 as the ‘Year of the Vlog’ and BritMums bloggers didn’t disappoint! This month you have sent in some fab posts containing video, and lots of them! You can see what you have all been up to below. However before we get there, there is an announcement. I have been speaking […]
Fallen off the wagon from your ‘healthy living’ New Year’s resolution? Don’t worry, so have most of us. In fact almost a fifth (18%) of people told the British Heart Foundation (BHF) that when they set goals for improving their lifestyle, they usually fail. We know that parents are more time-strapped than most people and […]
Is this the year you stop hating the way you look? Practically every woman I know hates something about the way she looks, if not harbouring a general meh feeling about her overall looks. Instead of it being a little feeling, like, “I wish my hair were thicker/my waist thinner/my thighs firmer but I’ve got […]
Our #RaiseSomeDough Twitter party was all about doing something delicious for a good cause: Baking something funny for money and raising some dough for Comic Relief. Bakers can help Comic Relief by purchasing from HomeSense some very groovy Henry Holland-designed aprons, tea towels and more that give to the charity with each purchase. The #RaiseSomeDough […]
Welcome to the first politics round-up of 2015. This should be a fascinating year politically, and as we head towards the general election I am hoping to be able to share the views of plenty of parent bloggers – on the issues that worry them, what they would like from politicians and how they will […]
As parents, we must grapple with the role the Internet plays in our lives and our children’s lives. One of the relatively new issues is revenge porn, which can be problematic for boys and girls. Conservative MP Shailesh Vara (right), Justice Minister, writes about the topic is this guest post: The sharing of private sexually […]
