Hello, hello! Me again, standing in for Mari. Thank you to all of you who linked up last week. It’s impossible to read and comment on every single post but I managed to get around most of you. This is especially the case from my mobile phone or iPad. I’m on Blogger and it hates commenting from portable devices!
Thank you too, to those who tagged me on Twitter. It’s been great to discover new blogs and to read your stories. I’ve featured my favourites, as promised, below.
And I’ve been thinking – (did you not hear the sound of old and rusty engines whirring even as far away as where you live?) – seeing as we’re all so strapped for time but want to take part or we wouldn’t be here – how about we comment on and / or share, say, the two posts above our own? Let me know if you like the idea. Mari and I can be the top two and I’ll catch up with the end of the week-ers (*looking at you Ms. MumintheSouth*) to make sure we’re all with a fair shout of some extra blog love!
It’s been another big week with #GE2015 (the General Election) and if you’ve been inspired to write anything political then please don’t forget to bring it to the attention of our Politics Editor – @SonyaCisco / [email protected] (by Wednesday please if poss) and she’ll include it in her monthly round up for us.
In the meanwhile, as fascinating a subject as that is *serious face* I’ve managed to talk – of all things at the other end of the life scale – Brownies (and not even the edible ones) – on my blog this week. I did a good turn and reaped some pretty unexpected rewards! Plus I’ve written about re-christening my sitting room the ‘Non-Sitting room.’ Can you identify with that?
But my #MBPW isn’t even actually by me. It has been my pleasure and absolute honour to host Dorset Divorcee as part of a (pretty sporadic, it must be said) series I run which tells the stories behind who single parents really are – i.e. not the feckless teenagers we are so regularly purported to be. She has written a beautiful and brilliant post and I can’t take any credit for it whatsoever!
I very much look forward to seeing what you’ve written this week. Here are your #MBPW that have made me laugh, cry and nod and sigh from last time:
