My favourite blogposts of 2021

The other day, I wrote about the most popular posts on my blog in 2021. But they’re not my own favourites! For many years, I blogged six or seven times per week, as there was always lots of stuff to write about. But in recent years, I’ve gradually started blogging less and less. My kids are grown up or nearly grown up and their stories are their own, not mine to share (although I have permission to share all the long jump...

My top posts of 2021

I’ve always blogged a lot about life with my teenagers, but I’ve eased off on that quite a bit this year. There’s still a weekly post on some aspect of life and parenting though.

As ever, they were a funny old mix and certainly not my own favourites. So I like to relive my own favourites, many of which would only have been read by a handful of people, but that doesn’t make them less valuable to me. This year has been a year like no other, so my favourite blogposts have got...

My favourite blogposts of 2019

The other day, I shared with you my top blogposts of 2019. Those are my most read posts, which are mainly about ballet exams and were mainly written many years ago. But today I wanted to share with you my favourite posts from the last year from my own blog. Some of these blogposts weren’t even particularly popular with readers, but that doesn’t matter. Of course, I like people to read what I’ve written, but most of...
