• #BrandsStopExploitingBloggers Working For Money – Join the cause!

    By amodernmilitarymother on May 8, 2014
    There is nothing that grits my shit more than getting PR calls from blogger outreach executives and PR account managers asking me to work on behalf of their client for free. A BLOGGER IS NOT A JOURNALIST A BLOGGER IS A PUBLISHER For example, the Andy Coulson would not approach Rupert Murdoch and ask him if he would support the […]

    By amodernmilitarymother on May 1, 2014
    A Modern Military Mother has been shortlisted for the Brilliance in Blogging Awards 2014.

  • Steal their style: The best celebrity mum looks

    By amodernmilitarymother on April 30, 2014
    There are always those mums who just look effortless, no matter what time you bump into them, whether it’s at the school gates, the summer fete or at the park. While most of the time, it’s easiest just to throw on a pair of boyfriend jeans, a slouchy tee and a pair of biker boots or Converse before running out […]

  • High Flight – Rest in Peace #RIP

    By amodernmilitarymother on April 28, 2014
    High Flight Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds, –and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of –Wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung My […]

  • Invest In Me

    By amodernmilitarymother on April 9, 2014
    If I had £5000 to play with I would invest it in my next book ‘I Hate Housework’. A book is a business; a start up. I know that in order to drive sales and get the book into bookshops I need to be able to order a print run and invest in marketing. It’s the law of speculate to […]

  • Real Life: Food is the Food of Love

    By amodernmilitarymother on April 4, 2014
    I love food. I am without doubt a foodaholic, although I have never considered myself a foodie. According to Wikipedia a foodie is “a foodie is a gourmet, or a person who has an ardent or refined interest in food and alcoholic beverages. A foodie seeks new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out for convenience or hunger. While gourmet and epicurean can be used […]

But aside from the societal demands to stay youthful there is something to be said for skin maintenance. I […]

  • Real Life – If It’s Broke Fix It

    By amodernmilitarymother on March 21, 2014
    On the 1st May 2014 I am withdrawing my book A Modern Military Mother – Tales from the Domestic Frontline. If you want a copy for posterity, then you need to seize the day and buy it now because once it’s gone, it’s gone forever. As it is print on demand and I think there are only around 250 hardcopies in […]
