I recently discovered, via public humiliation and agony, the very hardest thing to do whilst hopping....unless you can think of anything harder?

Anyone else wake up with five hundred thoughts (not even proper worries) running round their heads? I've just written a blog on A Woman's Worry is Never Done. Find it at One Household, 100 Fat Opinions... - would love to hear the little things that keep you awake!

I've just started a new parenting blog, I'd love it if anyone wanted to come and join me, it's a little different from the usual fashion posts I write!

egusta Sun 25-Nov-12 23:16:08

Also love your background. Lovely! I only have varying shades of green.... [green] with envy

Whether I like it or not, Christmas is coming and I have to say:

We Really Do Not Need Another Reindeer

but they're taking over my house....

Today we have Piano Exams. Wish Us Luck!

Hurrah we got a Christmas cake, 2 Christmas puds & lots of mincemeat made on Stir Up Sunday yesterday under the guidance of Head Cook Grandma and Chief Jester Grandpa ... :-)

I've fallen in love with Children of Green Knowe all over again as I read it to my seven year old. smile

TheNewson Mon 26-Nov-12 12:23:19

Forget those Tiny Tears dolls they hand to randy teens to introduce them to parenthood.

Send them into a noro infested 3-bed semi and they’ll soon be demanding contraception. Or sterilisation….Or incarceration.

Flamingmarvellous Mon 26-Nov-12 12:49:59

Am on an arty-crafty research quest for things to make during this week's Artypops after-school art class...enjoy x

You'd think I'd have learnt by now not to try and foist my daughter into a one size fits all routine ...

JerryLeadbetter Mon 26-Nov-12 21:18:31

I have one post about what we got up to the weekend just gone here

and another one here with a craft activity (involving sponge mud pigs and cotton wool lambs!) to do with your toddler this week when it's pissing down with rain and you can't get out and about! My DS is 21 months and just starting to 'get' and enjoy very basic crafts so I was quite excited about this blush

At last, against all the odds, a modicum of success at the hand of the Financial Ombudsman Service. Who would have thought it would take years !!

I've been running a kid's jewellery club, what do you think of their bracelets?

I've spent the best part of today writing this post about Queen Mary's Dolls' House and I bet no fucker reads it. This being one of the first rules of Blog Club other than 'We don't ever talk about Blog Club': 'The amount of time spent writing a blog post is directly inverse to the amount of comments and attention it will engender.' ;)

RecipeJunkie Wed 28-Nov-12 20:26:32

chicken pie with extra sausage and loads of veg - because real men my son doesn't like couscous

I've mentioned this table runner by Farrow & Ball -if you can face thinking about Christmas just yet....

I joined in SGM's blog hop on violence against women, to tell the story of an amazing young woman I met in Kenya, called Vivian.

I have started a childrens food linky, because I am always desperate for a bit of inspiration!!

MmeGuillotine Thu 29-Nov-12 14:29:05

Another post that took bloody hours that no one will read - the posh doom laden history of Mary, Queen of Scots' bedchamber at Holyroodhouse. ;)

I blogged about The Final Countdown before I attempt a craft a day over at

PetiteRaleuse Thu 29-Nov-12 15:42:14

I read both your dollhouse post and the Mary post MmeG. I do share your frustration though. Posts I write with no thought or effort are generally far more popular than the ones I feel I put the most effort into.

MmeGuillotine Thu 29-Nov-12 15:54:48

It's so annoying! If I did a skittish one line ramble about total BOLLOCKS it'd get loads of comments but the pieces I work really hard on tend not to get much feedback. I've been told that this is because people are, in general, too intimidated to say anything but I think that was an EXCUSE.

And thank you for reading them! I realised I was missing writing big epic history posts so thought I'd slip a couple in. smile

Also, my camera is buggered.

Does anyone know how to un-automatically approve comments from someone, without formally unapproving and deleting their specific comment? i have a system where if someone is approved once, then they are automatically approved and i would like to make it that I have to check 'okay' each time.

Any help gratefully received!

egusta Thu 29-Nov-12 20:28:17

No, 'tis okay. Found it. smile I knew I knew it somehow.

I randomly came across a vintage postcard of the house that I grew up on Ebay and absolutely HAD to buy it and, of course, blog about it. smile

addictedismoving Sat 01-Dec-12 15:15:32

Inspired by fivehours sleep I decided to blog on our christmas traditions too, but I got a bit down and it turned into something a little diffrent!

stitchNting Sat 01-Dec-12 20:34:38

Before the day is out and we move on to the next week of posts, I'll chuck in my first post of December. I'm going to try and do a Christmas related craft from now until the big day and started a blog-hop called The Crafting Days of Christmas . Please, if anyone is doing any crafty posts, come on over and add your links! The more the merrier grin!
