Kicking off with a fun post about performing surgery on my DD's favourite Xmas present (and probably mine too, to be honest!)

(Hope I'm doing this right, I've never been first of the week before!)

Not blogged in a while, but saw this BBC thing today about people who died last year, and wondered why there were so few women featured. Deaths in 2012 - a feminist perspective

Happy New Year. 3 from me: I posted about changed plans and recipe fails on New Years Eve, then on New Year's Day, I posted the sort of failed Chocolate & Raspberry Roulade, which wasn't that much of a fail in the end.

And finally, (drum roll please, I am sooo excited) I am hosting the Forever Nigella blog hop/linky this month so if you're cooking anything inspired by the Goddess to cherish your loved ones, with, please do link up. The announcement post is here

yassusarah enjoyed your post. My daughter has a revolution too - to practise her recorder more! Mine sound a bit like yours...

Poor old drunk bunny In which my normal poor quality organisational skills means no silversmithing for me. Humph.

I'm new. This is my first post since joining the network so be nice!

A tale of how 2012 gave me a bit of breathing space and few links to things that have made my world a better place. http://newpencilcase.wordpress.com/

I return to work and am so well organised that I actually scare myself a bit

A while since I blogged as the Christmas period was truly manic.

Also a departure from my usual food posts- a plug for my friend's newly published e-book (published on Lulu). Rosy started a blog last year that detailed her ups and downs looking for love. It was such a funny, brave, truthful blog, which as often as I laughed I also cried.

Changes for 2013: Why don't I look after myself better despite what happened in 2012?!

MmeGuillotine Thu 03-Jan-13 21:25:58

I got a bit fed up with all the daily emails I get about my blog so decided to collate some of the most popular posts into a book about Marie Antoinette so that I can point people at that instead. However, being me, I've gone SLIGHTLY mad and added masses of extra stuff too so it's going to be huge when it comes out in the summer!

I'm on a roll. So here is my resolution for 2013, inspired by my 6 year old's feelings of failure big bad wolf

OK, did any one resolve to make their own bread this year? Well at the risk of sounding a little bit up myself, I am going to try and convert anyone that wants to the joys of making sourdough bread. You've got 10 days to make your starter before I start telling you what to do with it. The post tells you what to do.

Ooo must try making bread again RecipeJunkie.. it's been ages!

In other news, I have blogged about sleeping with a guy half may age... let the judging/congratulations commence...

They packaged it up and sold pregnancy back to us with a bow on. There's a party in utero:

Does anyone have children who like Moshi Monsters? This probably suits girls more but I'd love a boy to win!
I'm hosting a Moshi Monster giveaway on my blog for the next couple of weeks.

So, Christmas is over, I am back from my trip but 3 things brought me back to my blog and I posted them here as post scripts to conquering Christmas

I have tweaked a little and intend to continue blogging our occasional forays into craft..just have to hit Pinterest now for a few more ideas!
