Tag Archives | Blogger of the Week
I sit in my lounge typing and I only have one child in need of my mothering today. My daughter Ella is off to school. Well, not quite Reception as her Reception class doesn’t begin until Monday so today Ella is at her old preschool again. But Monday begins my redundancy as far as Ella […]
So here we are…the last week of the Summer Holiday for many of us while the Scottish bloggers amongst us are sticking out their tongues at us as they’ve been back to school for 2-3 weeks! Between the last minute uniform buying, ironing (Seriously??? Do I HAVE to iron??), labelling and lunchbox planning, I’d like […]
The blogging world can be a lovely place. You meet new people, form friendships, support each other and always have a shoulder to cry on. Social media allows you to reach out without having to actually be able to physically reach someone and that can be a very powerful thing when you’re feeling lost and […]
I don’t know about you but this week I’ve had to become reacquainted with the rest of the channels on my television. It’s been refreshing to have more than 2 channels to watch but I’ve also missed the pomp and circumstance of the Olympics. Every so often I make Ella stand up on a box, […]
In lieu of awarding Blogger of the Week this week, I thought it important that we recognise, support and send good vibes/thoughts/prayers to Kerry aka Multiple Mummy. Those of us who know Kerry have been gobsmacked to learn of the uphill battle which she is now facing. Thanks to Multiple Daddy, we’ve been made aware […]
Friday! We’ve reached the end of another rainy, pooey, miserable week in the UK. We’re one week closer to the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremonies and we’re only hours away from the official start of the Summer Holidays (of course Scotland, you’re already there aren’t you?). Here’s hoping that the rain of the last 10 […]
Thankfully, in between the sporadic rainshowers, there was sunshine for some of us this week. Isn’t it remarkable how much brighter the day seems when a few rays of sunshine manage to creep through the clouds? Ah…. Oops, don’t look up too long, you’re sure to have a rain drop ping you in the eye […]
**floating on a cloud of bliss and happiness left over from BritMums Live!** Ah, blogging! Isn’t it a wonderful thing? You can pour your guts out to no one and everyone and find someone who is willing to read it, nod along and even comment from time to time. I was looking back at my […]
This week, many bloggers are beginning to think about a rather large event occurring one week from today. No, the Olympics are at the end of July. We’re talking about BritMums Live! There will be 500+ people at the BritMums Live! conference next Friday and Saturday and while there is a lot of excitement building, […]
Did everyone enjoy the looooong Jubliee Weekend? I know I did! Cake, Pimms, jumpers and patio heaters were the order of the weekend. Oh, and wellie boots. Don’t you just love how the weather puts on a show for our Queen?! Well, now that we’ve had the opportunity to come down after our 4-day weekend […]
Phew! The giant, garden-sized Union flag is done…just in time for the Jubilee! I’m so glad I persevered with it despite the looks from my neighbours. Who’s going to win the “Best Decorated House in the Village” contest now, eh? I know, you’re jealous. Having a bit more time on my hands, I’ve been able […]
Well, in honour of the upcoming Jubilee and my daughter’s 4th birthday next weekend, I’ve decided to take the ark building equipment from two weeks ago and instead of building the Wendy House that I was going to build last week, I am now making a GIANT Union Flag to position on our roof. I’m […]
After a week of virtually no rain I have abandoned last week’s ark building project and am now making it into a shed in the back garden. It will become my space of meditation, solace and creativity. Aw, who am I kidding?? I’m a Mum of two, there’s no such thing any more! If I […]
You know that ark that I started building last week? Well, darn it, the rain has lessened a bit and it seems I don’t need it after all! Darn. I was really enjoying the sawing and hammering, as were my neighbours. Oh well, I’ll just work on it next week when I’m sure the rain […]
“Just keep swimming, just keep swimming…” Remember that line? From “Finding Nemo”? Good old Dory’s advice is highly appropriate to all of the country at the moment. Goodness me, could there BE any more rain? To brighten your Friday in advance of what will probably NOT be the sunniest of Bank Holiday weekends, I thought […]
Rain, rain, go away, come again another day! We’re all a bit water-logged this week aren’t we? Of course we NEED the rain but it does add another dimension to parenting when the rain never seems to let up! I’ve got my raincoat and wellies on and have spent some time wading into the blogging […]
Apologies for not awarding the BritMums Blogger of the Week the last two weeks but with the Spring Break, rain and rather brisk temps, I found myself buried under a mountain of Lego Duplo with no ability to get to the laptop! Dangerous, as you are no doubt aware! Have you ever stepped on one […]
