Another Silent Sunday here.

I haven't been posting much as I hit 1.5 million page views and decided that it was about time I moved to self hosting. The process has been more hideous than anticipated but I THINK we'll be ready to do the BIG MOVE next week. smile

In the meantime, here's a squiz at the new covers for two of my three books! I'm rather pleased with them! smile

CollectorOfCookbooks Sun 23-Sep-12 19:31:28

Ooh they look fab Mme!

I can delete posts if I go into the overall 'post' editing page, rather than being in the post itself, if that helps ManInHisPJs?Which platform are you on?

Today, I can't decide if I need a waffle iron, and it's all the fault of the Great British Bake Off.

MmeGuillotine Sun 23-Sep-12 19:45:22

Thanks so much! smile

Didn't think my daughter's homework could be this enjoyable!

Teenboy's moved out and partying hard at uni, but I've other problems afoot with Teengirl.

There are days - and even whole weeks - when I think we have it sorted! No explosive wails of "No, no, no!", no running away screaming and no lying on floor with flailing arms and legs. And there are some days - and even some whole weeks - when I cannot believe I can be getting it sooo wrong!

What am I doing wrong?

As my daugher begins her school life and her journey towards independence I've been wondering if we push children too quickly into becoming independent.

“Necessity may well be called the mother of invention but calamity is the test of integrity,” and while there is no doubt the calamitous circumstances of recent years have necessitated a certain amount of re-invention on my part, it has been the loss of my financial integrity which has caused me to suffer the most. lifeafterdebts.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/business-worries.html

I have been discovering the answer to transforming dirty yellowed greasy tile grouting into sparkling clean white grouting very cheaply, quickly and effectively.

Go on, you know you want clean grouting too!

Well, yes, I know Nigella looked FABULOUS last night, but I was cooking egg surprise long before she did - honest - even if I'd never eat it in a LBD and killer heels - I'd be bound to slop it all down my front...

Busy week for us, both on and off the blog as the wife is away with work, so we are home alone,...

Home Alone 1: Mums gone but we've got a kitten
Home Alone 2: Charlotte stuffs a chicken and a python comes to visit
Home Alone 3: Ladies don't lunch, they work damn hard, and why I'm an extra lucky dad
Great salmon fishcakes

Hopefully we'll survive to the end of the week...

Oh, and Mme, that's amazing that you have such a busy blog, good luck with the hosting move!

I'm one of those pesky book bloggers that the chairman of this year's Booker prize doesn't like, so I've joined the clamour of voices answering him back:

Gee Thanks, Sir Peter

Is anyone else joining in the blog prompt Love Bombing

Quite a debate going on already.

This post has been a long time coming. First post link from me; I'm new to the network, so hello!

I've not blogged much this week - had a bit of a confidence knock. But I have blogged today about French politics if anyone is interested.

DS2 and I spent the morning at DS1's school at a Roald Dahl themed reading café. It was fun!

Blogging about the low-carb Paleo diet. Apparently all the rage even amongst runners who normally love carbs but can I stick to it, that is the question!

Petite - stuck a comment on your blog!

Thanks smile
