Hola Ladies, Gents, Boys, Girls and Goldfish, are we enjoying the World Cup thing? As I am waist deep in watching Gossip Girl on Netflix the only reason I know that there is some giant Media-Consuming Sports-related thing going down in Brazil is the sudden increase in the number of British and English flags flying from garden fences and car windows.
If you, like me, are so over the football thing, or you have a physic pet of some kind (and you’ve got to think that takes the joy out of it) then you are going to need distraction to get you through the next couple of weeks. Which is why, dear friends and readers of BritMums, I have some splendidly Good Reads to keep you occupied.
So pull up a chair, put your phone on silent, switch off the TV and digest:
- Emily Organ writes about Pinterest Parenting.
