BritMums Good Reads: Without mum, Google and parenting

good readsOn the school run home today I wound down the window whilst my daughters and I squealed with delight: we saw the first of our daffodils had opened. There are bumblebees bumbling around the lawn and wild bunnies chomping at the pansies outside the front door. Spring, people. It’s springing out there.

So if the joy hasn’t quite made it to your corner of the planet, take a minute out of your day and read some of the posts I found out and about on the internet.Take five, in fact.

About Kelly Innes

Kelly is the face behind the vintage silhouette at Domestic Goddesque. She eats too much cookie dough to have a waist that small.

She is a thirty-something Mother of two absurdly photogenic little girls, is married her beloved DH and endures daily battles-of-will with the dog she refers to as the Wonder Hound. She likes to avoid housework as much as possible, preferring to bake, craft and drink cocktails. Sorry, did I say cocktails? I meant coffee. And nap. She likes to nap too. When not blogging, you can find her haunting Facebook for interesting snippets of gossip, or throwing her wit around the twittersphere. (She may have made that last bit up too: she’s not that funny.)


  1. Thanks so much for the mention Kelly! There are lots of fab posts here! Some I have read and some I am looking forward to getting stuck into over a cup of tea and biscuits!
