It is great to see so many people raising awareness of charities through blogging. My absolutely favourite post this month is perhaps not surprising seeing as I am a Yorkshire lass with a liking for our regional pudding. To be serious, I know I take communication for granted with my children and suspect I am […]

The weather is getting colder and the winter season is on its way. It is the time when colds hit and families struggle with snuffling, sneezing and ever-flowing mucus. No parent enjoys seeing their child suffer and it is even worse if it seems there is little you can do to help. Children get cranky […]
My feet do not touch the ground anymore, the world and his wife have woken up and everyone seems to be knocking on my door. Busy does not cover it but along with busy I should add happy – apart from the cough that is. Second course of antibiotics and if they don’t work x-ray […]
Special Needs Bloggers Thank you to everyone who took part in last month’s SEN round-up linky. It’s always wonderful to browse through new blogs and old favourites, and to see the sheer diversity in the way we write. This too reflects the uniqueness of each of our children, our families and us as parents. Which […]
We celebrated Potato Week with a Twitter party, using the #FluffyMarisPiper hashtag, all about the tasty meals you can make with the Maris Piper potatoes, the great all-round potato variety with a fluffy middle! Get more inspiration and recipe ideas at Lovepotatoes.co.uk Comfort food with potatoes Potatoes are great in curries to make them thick […]
As readers of my monthly BritMums posts will know I recently plucked up the courage to ask my boss to work flexibly to enable me to take every other Wednesday off to look after my three daughters. I am six weeks into Operation Daddy Day Care and although I have had a few teething problems, such as having to […]
Eggs can make a meal out of anything. They’re nutritious, because of the protein, vitamins and minerals they contain. They are also great to combine with the most common leftovers such as potatoes, carrots, and bacon, making quick and tasty meals that also reduce food waste. We held a #BritishEggWeek Twitter party to hear parents’ […]
October’s theme is… there is no theme. I asked you to send me what you are proud of….. My proud moment this month came when I was asked by Whittard of Chelsea to provide some tips on time management for a campaign they were running to encourage people to let their tea brew properly. A […]
What do you get if you take a psychotherapist, two stay at home dads, one of whom likes to write about feminism and a dad that has a thing for laundry bleach? You get the dad bloggers that feature in this month’s round up, that’s what. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s a real autumnal mix. […]
Travelling is a holiday highlight for so many families, especially when you’re able to visit places you’ve always dreamed about. There’s nothing quite like being there to make those memories that last a lifetime. This year is the 100th anniversary of commercial flight, and to celebrate we want to hear about the dream destinations you’ve […]
I left you last month with a feeling that Scotland was going to vote Yes. This was purely based on the fact that in my little corner of the blogging world YES was the resounding theme. As you will all know, the answer given by Scotland to the question of independence was NO. I was […]
September has been the month for starting school, and lots of you have packed your children off to a room full of strangers with mixed emotions. Both Mummy Shire and Make me an Earth Mother have written about the start of school. But they’re not, as you might imagine, lamenting the loss of their babies […]
What do you do with leftover bacon, roast dinners, puff pastry, carrots, potatoes? Almost anything when you combine them with eggs, the perfect ingredient to create main meals out of common leftovers that also reduce food waste. At our #ShortcutEggsperts Hangout on Air held during British Egg Week, a group of food-loving bloggers shared their […]
There were so many great recipes left on the linky after September’s Foodie Round up – thank you! As proof that I really do read them all and appreciate every single one, this round-up is mostly dedicated to them. That and Halloween – you have to have a few Halloween recipes in October don’t you? […]
Collating this round-up each month is always enjoyable. I read about amazing places you’ve visited and good food you’ve eaten. I share your adventures and dream about sandy beaches and swish hotel rooms. But travel can often be a time of contemplation. We may visit a destination where we are faced with a country’s history […]
Quite without planning it, there seems to be a bit of theme with this month’s post – we’ve got an awful lot of anxious tweens. Is this a modern phenomenon, or has it always happened? What is it about the tween years that bring these things on? I have no answers, just some very moving […]
Summer has been long and very warm. Usually this time of year it is starting to feel a bit chilly as Autumn sets in, but not this year. As I write this, I am sitting in my back garden, sun hat slanted to one side, sunglasses perched on top and the sun is beaming down […]
If I was a robot I’d be driving my master insane. I am acting perfectly normally and for the most part getting everything done on time, kids to school, after school activities attended, on time, with uniform and smiling kids – not bad but there’s a little something that’s not quite right. It’s as if […]
