Hi I’m Sonia, Mum of two tweenage boys and Stepmum to two (grownup) lads. I blog a little, no niche, a bit of humour, the odd rant, and some recipes now and again. I’m new to Mumsnet, and I don’t know if I’m registered in the Mumsnet Network, but I’d like to be

I’m Sophie. I’ve recently started writing a blog about the challenges of family life with a child with autism. By doing this I hope to raise more public awareness about the condition.

Thanks for reading

Hi, I'm a mature mum of 11 year old. New to site. Looking for direction and inspiration raising a "tweenie snowflake". Desperate not to prolong my present angst, worry and stress and loss of love for myself. Lone parent, no family.

Hello! Great to meet you all.

You might see me, @EllieHYMumsnet or @AbbyWMumsnet pop up occasionally - we manage the Mumsnet influencer network.

@SonzyB, Ellie manages our new members so she can take a look and see if you're on there. If not I'm sure she'll message you with details on how to register.

@Mummyofasquarepeg - welcome! If you're new the blogging community, you might like to check out Someone's Mum. She's a veteran blogger who writes a lot about life with an autistic child, helping your own child grow up with autism, but also raising awareness that it isn't this big, scary illness that people need to be afraid of.

And hi @Eleanor35 - sounds like you've got a lot on your plate! Someone else for you to follow might be Actually Mummy. She also has teenagers and (though I'm not sure she'd thank me for describing her this way!) is a 'mature mum'. She was discussing menopause on Instagram yesterday.

Welcome guys!

I started my blog in January and its still a work in progress. Its about green living, growing your own, gardening, rural life (by an ex townie). I have three boys and battle to get them involved in all things outdoors. Sometimes succeed, sometimes not. I enjoy looking out other people's lovely blogs and getting blog envy smile

Hi all, I am a dad blogger (**@TheNeuDad**) and my website is
You can also find me on Twitter ( and Instagram ( and i'd love to connect with more of you on there.
I am actually going to be starting a radio show very soon and i'd be interested to know what kind of things you'd like to hear from a dad's perspective (doesn't need to relate directly to parenting, just anything in general!)
Have a great week!

Hi, I am really brand new to this and I just wanted to respond to a request from other people who noticed the Bloominelse fashion for large people, pop up on face book and wether it is a genuine site. I too thought the clothing looked awesome and great value, sceptical to say the least. However I did place an order for a dress and a blouse for my daughter to be delivered directly to her in Scotland in time for her birthday, I live in Ontario, Canada. I placed the order a few days ago, paying for it with my cc. Keeping my finger crossed

I'm a week into blogging and really enjoying it. So far it's mainly focussed on running with my 13 year old son who was struggling with school and friendship anxiety earlier this year, but my plan is for it to be about mindset, postivity, exercise, health, wellbeing, anti-perfectionism.

I need to get off to the day job but have bookmarked this page, and the other blogging ones, for a trawl through later.

Thanks for that @amieMumsnet. Apologises I had no idea. Afraid the link isn't working.

AmieMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 15-Apr-19 11:13:05

Whoops! My bad!

And don't worry at all, it's not that clearly labelled in small writing at the top of the forum topic. wink

I was reading all the posts about incontinence, I had breast cancer in 2007 but have been suffering with incontinence since 1998 after my son was born, I suffered with a prolapse womb in 2012 and had to have a hysterectomy and a bowl and bladder repair the latter one didn’t work, I have constantly had pads ever since but over recent weeks I seem to be getting worse. Work is a constant problem I can be sitting fine one minute then without warning I flood embarrassment everyday I go out, the good side is I work from home three days a week and have three bathrooms in a townhouse.
