For those humbugs who say community spirit has gone down the pan, well I say, have a look around you and you might just have to get involved to find out where it’s at. We had our Summer street party a couple of weekends ago and it was a brilliantly organised day with everyone mucking […]

One of the biggest changes in shopping in recent years has been the mash up of bargain hunting consumers, driven by the credit crunch, and social media.  We all want more, a lot more, for a lot less without sacrificing on quality or quantity.  A handful of small start ups are helping this happen and […]

I love ordering flowers but I often feel a bit disappointed by the selection on offer from the mainstream flower delivery companies so I do tend to shop about for something a little bit unusual. I may think again however, as Interflora has come out with a range which taps into the new prom trend. […]

There seems to be a lot of controversy around the subject of being paid to blog or taking money from brands to create content. How did this ever happen? I may have jokingly referred to Mummy bloggers as BUMs on Radio 4 Woman’s Hour last week but I felt that the Blogging Unpaid Mums Society […]

My gallery contribution is inspired by one of the most wistful books I ever read.   It’s by Antoine de St Exupéry and called The Little Prince (or Le Petit Prince to those of you who have read it in French). For those of you who know the book you might find this picture resonates […]

Katie Lee is the UK blogger that has really moved things along in social media, and not only that, she’s made massive inroads into demystifying the bastion of the male species, the ‘gadget’, by creating her own blog about consumer tech which is aimed at women. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her a […]

After much giggling and the odd tear shed, I have drawn a line in the sand and placed a bet with Miniminx for £100 (of Game of Life money I might add). The best is over whether she can sit through the film Lassie Come Home without shedding a tear. I don’t think for a […]

Remember Tron? Well here’s a reminder if you don’t; wasn’t it great? And another one is coming out soon, 28 years after the first one. This is one film I can’t wait to see, TRON Legacy. Jeff Bridges, one of my favourite actors reprises his role as Flynn; and he’s been stuck in void for […]

Yesterday was a big day for Mummy Bloggers – several of us got a shout out and interview on Radio 4 Womans Hour. That’s a big deal. Mombloggersclub was on twitter last night exclaiming that Mum Bloggers must be in the news as the site suddenly had a load of traffic – so the news […]

I went to see Eclipse; in fact I was lucky enough to be at the London gala premiere at the Odeon Leicester Square. I fell in love with the whole Twilight saga and swiftly caught up on the other two movies from the series. Robert Pattinson and Kirsten Stewart are the new Johnny Depp and […]

We’re a bit cheeky at times so when I was asked if we wanted to meet Lane Merrifield, the founder of Club Penguin this week, I thought, No, I don’t but I know someone who does, and that someone being my daughter, I asked if it would be possible for her to interview him. And […]

Is it possible to have a ‘green’ holiday? I went on a blogger trip to the Pierre et Vacances eco resort recently to find out. In part 1 of my story, I will talk about getting there and settling in. Why France? If you’re in need of a cultural experience and don’t want to travel […]

I have to say the word Cybermummy has raised a few eyebrows as I’ve chucked it around for the last few months – it’s made me giggle a bit to be frank. I confess that on occasion, I’ve imagined giant Michelin Man style Dr Who baddies crafted in metallic silver suits with high pitched voices […]

I’m here at the 11:00 – 11:50 Content Session on What makes a great blog post? Jennifer Howze is talking about what you need to do to be a good blogger. She says it’s not just about content; it’s about getting involved and that the readers tend to be searingly honest in their criticism. Next […]
