Sometimes it seems that there is so much we don’t know when it comes to our special educational needs children. As they say, knowledge is power, but often it’s just not possible to know something or it’s simply difficult to recognise it in our kids, or even in ourselves. What could seem more unknown than […]

Remember the days when you visited your grandparents and spent hours poring over their photo ...
Remember the days when you visited your grandparents and spent hours poring over their photo albums, packed full of grainy prints of your parents in days gone by. Back then you had 24 or maybe 36 pictures on a roll, all requiring developing and a shiny new album in which to display them. Now our […]
If there’s one thing that we all have in common (apart from our little people) it’s got to be these. Our blogs! These living, breathing things that have become extensions of ourselves – steering and shaping the way we live, laugh and love. They are the very things that have brought us here, to BritMums. […]
Right who forgot to tell the wonderful British weather that Summer is fast approaching? You may be forgiven for thinking we are heading back into Autumn and I, for one, have had the heating on this month – I can’t say I’m happy about that one bit and I know I’m not alone. So in […]
I’m finally back – and I’m so sorry to have been away so long. To cut a very long story short, my Dad was diagnosed with Cancer, and then something in my brain decided to do amiss and rendered me unable to walk straight for about four months. Anyhow, finally, I’m getting myself back together […]
With the recent beautiful sunshine comes the inevitability of wearing less clothes. It’s easy to hide underneath jumpers and coats, but as summer clothes appear it tends to make us think more about our bodies. So for my first BritMums Video Round-up I wanted to look at how the community is feeling about how they […]
Sunshine, longer days, flowers blooming but are your finances looking as rosy? This month we focus on moving, mortgages and the alternative of extending your home. As always we look at all aspects of your finances from set up a spending diary to sorting out your children’s money. What has the country gone mad about […]
Since my last round-up, M has been adjusting to being a big sister with mixed success! I think she’s understandably finding it tricky that there’s suddenly this other person demanding our attention, when previously she had it all to herself. I’ve written all about my first six weeks parenting two under two, if you fancy […]
Oh how I wish I could crochet! It is not through lack of trying, I have watched tutorials on YouTube but have never got passed the basic chain stitch. I have friends who are brilliant at it and have offered to teach me and I think I’ll have to take them up on that offer. […]
There are those places that you love to go to over and over. Costa Barcelona is one of those places for BritMums. The area around the eponymous Catalan city is awash is amazing things to do, see and experience as a family. That’s why we were thrilled to be part of Costa Barcelona Week and […]
Reading is the foundation of all learning. The most important skill a child will ever learn. It all starts with being read to as a baby, sharing the colourful pictures and filling their little brains with the magic of stories. It may seem silly at first but as a teacher, I can tell you that […]
Smile! That’s not just what we say when taking pictures. That’s what five BritMums Influencers did after trying out My Cloud Home, the stylish and practical digital storage device where you can easily save and organise all your favorite digital content in one place and access it from anywhere. (This post is part of a […]
In this month’s round-up of dad blogs, we venture everywhere from Jodrell Bank and the weekday commute to Adventure Bay and Westeros. Easter (mis)adventures The start of April brought Easter and the school holidays, a time for chocolate, creative days out and chaos in equal measure. John from Dad Blog UK mulled over what happens […]
In my biog I state that I am partial to Cheese, Gin, Peanut Butter, Tea and Rhubarb and that I’m permanently looking for the recipe that can successfully combine them all. The quest continues but I’m focusing on one of my favourites in this month’s seasonal roundup. Rhubarb! I have successfully managed to combine it […]
