Again, another thing I learnt at Brit Mums Live. I will (not) stop talking about it, but things I learnt there have meant a lot. One of my favourite sessions was 'Blogging from the Heart'. 4 women who blog, or have blogged, about the the different things life has thrown at them.

There are so many ways you can be involved with this charity. They have fund raising activities that anyone can help with. They also have a shop, so you can buy little gifts to help the charity.
