The Best Bits Of BritMums Live

What are the best bits of BritMums Live? Yesterday I told you all the worst bits of my BritMums Live weekend so here goes with the really good stuff in no particular order. 1. I got a night away with Him Indoors whilst the little darlings went to stay with my step-daughter. 

How To Be On Trend – Groovy Mums

How do I start a post when I am still a little in shock from yesterday's events? For those who missed it, we held a Twitter party using the hashtag #groovymums.  If you are a #groovymums you are officially on trend according to Twitter. The original idea was to acknowledge that the

Dark Day

I am picking up now but for much of the day my mood was so low. Black clouds weighing me down. I hate how even with post-natal depression long gone (years ago), I can still be right back in the depths. I am not a nice person to know

Action On Post Natal Depression – Please Support

Currently the Mental Health care support for many women suffering with PND is totally inadequate and there needs to be a change. This is what the petition says: My wife Joanne (Joe) Bingley died on the 30th April 2010 when our beautiful baby girl, Emily Jane, was only 10

The Best Day I Spent With My Family

I am joining in with the Britmums Prompt this week where we are asked to tell you about the best day with our family. When I became a mum, it felt like a lovely two had become a wonderful three. My son was a bonus, adding to an already fun

How to be a happy mum

Holiday in Cornwall

I was not at all sure what to post about for the Gallery theme of A Happy Memory this week.

Is it time to rest?

Is it time to rest? Today is 29th February and social media is telling us we have an extra day. I wonder what most mums have done with that day. My guess is that most will not have taken it as a day of rest. I imagine mums

The Playground Mafia – book review

The Playground Mafia is a book I received as part of my membership of the BritMums Book Club. I love the club as it leads me to read books that I would not normally select. It is so easy to get stuck in a rut with our reading choices. The Playground

How to become a confident parent

Are you a confident parent? When did that feeling kick in? Taking a new baby home is a milestone in itself. I remember the lovely outfit I had bought for my son whilst pregnant being way too big when it came to the time to put him in his

What is life after depression like?

What is life after depression like? I am becoming increasingly aware and joyful at how differently I find things now the black clouds of depression have disappeared. 1. I don't mind the house not being clinically perfect. I don't have the housework skills to make this happen or perhaps I do
