I got a nice insight into the world of teenage girls at the All Time Low Gig in London instead of the romantic valentines night I would've liked.

Craftsonsea Sun 17-Feb-13 19:36:36

I once again failed to write anything craft related (oops!) and instead got in a right old huff about the level of support for Oscar Pistorius and how abusers don't have watch out written on their foreheads

My son says I'm becoming a real feminist

MmeLindor Mon 18-Feb-13 12:13:02

Loved this interview with Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

Is it just me who thinks he is a grumpy old man?

Btw, if anyone has a blog post that would be suitable for Jump! Mag could you get in touch. Looking for writers - can't pay but happy to link back to your blog (as long as it isn't adult themed)

Organised, Moi? The latest blog post about how I never quite manage to leave the house on time with everything I need for the day ahead.

TheNewson Mon 18-Feb-13 16:58:45

But just as my husband can't help hoovering the big vac with a mini Henry desk vac, I can't help leaving all the lids loose on the jars.

because I'm staying at my mum's with the kids this week, I got to read a paper this morning, which meant I got to read about another 'new' parenting theory and from what the minimalist parenting theory says about feeding kids, I started to think about what has saved my sanity when trying to feed my own kids. I'd love to hear your tips - we're not necessarily talking food here - more dinner time survival strategies.

I've counted - to resolve an argument - the number of things we buy to keep the house very vaguely clean and organised - 75 different things! How can that be ...?

Yesterday we all went to the beach

The last Plantagenet princess, an imprisoned wife, executions, battles, two faced aristocrats, murder, roundheads, cavaliers and more posh doom than you can feasibly shake a stick at - it's all going on at Farleigh Hungerford castle! smile

Have you booked an appointment with The Fairytale Hairdresser yet? She's the best in the land!

Happy Friday morning!

This week has ranged from the serious to the flippant with some fabulous Cornish fish in between (could it be more surreal?)

Public art: a silent, striking (no pun intended) protest by Italian workers, using only hard hats:

Beautiful Cornish fish in the Japanese style:

And a little tongue in cheek, flippant look at how some designers decorate their homes (great if you're bored at your desk on a Friday pm!!)

Have fabulous weekends! x

Studio Snapshots, since someone mentioned to me that they had not the smallest idea what to expect when they came to see me.

MmeLindor Fri 22-Feb-13 13:29:24

A review of Polarn O. Pyret and why I won't be doing any more sponsored posts or reviews on my blog.

I wrote about the dangers of turning your back and/or having the glitter glue within reach of nearly-5-year-olds hands under the title of Baby Bels and Waxy McWax

GrandmaAbson Fri 22-Feb-13 16:54:42

How different it was when Land Girls provided the women power in the 1940s like they did at Hodsock Priory in Notts. But they did leave us the legacy of using food in season. This week it's #Rhubarbfest so time to make a Rhubarb Crumble!

GrandmaAbson Fri 22-Feb-13 16:57:16

Take a look at my Blog for a taste of traditional baking just like Grandma used to do.
