Oooh! I've not been first up before ... v exciting :-)

This week I've rustled up a list of 100 different fruit combinations that I can hide in muffins ...

I'm in awe of all the lovely bump and baby stories at the Friday Baby Shower ...

And I've been thinking about the best ways to use linky parties to grow my blog ...

We loved our family trip to Dartmoor's Bovey Castle - they even have LEGO room service bit.ly/XQcuqs

A guest post here (first I've had on my blog!!) Come and feast your eyes on Mrs W's Pear Lancashire & Walnut Muffins with slapdash stirring and a B&B recommendation.

ediblewoman Mon 04-Mar-13 08:19:59

Thanks Mumsmakelists (they do don't they, I know I do) it has in a very short space of time become the most requested super ever, beating the formerly unassailable pasta and tomato sauce hands down.

IzzieA Mon 04-Mar-13 08:27:02

Song lyrics and how they're not always as innocent as my daughters think. Another mother-daughter secret we won't be sharing with dad.

Great post StewieGriffinsMom. What I find most disturbing about Amazon is the way they keep on doing stuff like this, but such is the strength of their business model (ie consistently providing what people want at a price they want to pay) that it makes people think well, it's a bastard corporation, but just this once won't hurt. I know, I do it myself.

I haven't posted for weeks because we've been moving. A bit of a bitter pill: my post on it is here.

Booked up - this one's for World Book Day on Thursday... forthegirlblog.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/booked-up.html

doradoo Mon 04-Mar-13 10:35:49

Why? is it a cultural question - or do all toddlers use it incessantly?

MmeGuillotine Mon 04-Mar-13 11:55:55

A rushed post about an excellent book I just read, the iniquity of moving house and also the fact that I got a mention in Mslexia last week for my self publishing efforts. smile

cjfriess Mon 04-Mar-13 12:31:26

My Mummy and Me is a beautiful board book that would be a perfect present for a small child to give for Mother's Day.

PigeonPairNell so cool!

Where do you stand on spring cleaning?

Love it? Hate it? Just don't do it?

I've written about my son's 4th birthday party.

He didn't want a party but I became overcome with maternal fervour and ploughed on anyway.

CollectorofCookbooks Tue 05-Mar-13 11:35:59

The Great Dinner Party Challenge continues: my struggle with new recipes when a fellow foodie blogger came to dinner plus how not to caramelise your Tartes...

Arrrgghh, my post went all wrong. I think this happens when I have more than one wordpress tab open and a previous draft is left open after I publish (which then overwrites it).

Hopefully the link will now work.

I'm eternally grateful for the spring cleaning tips Mumsmakelists

Loving your work Dilly, as always ;-)

RecipeJunkie Tue 05-Mar-13 19:03:03

A lovely quick and easy pudding - featuring raspberries, lemon and almonds. Go On! - You know you want to

mumsmakelists2 thanks! Loved your list too, although I doubt I'd ever get the chance to get round to every item...left a comment earlier.

A few ideas for fun, easy things to make out of unwanted jumpers.
Amazing what you can get out of an old knit!

I've not been on for a while, but today I've blogged about the wonderful thing that is dads reading to their children. Booktrust have a campaign about it too.

If you were a flower, how would you like to be arranged?

This post was inspired by an unexpected bunch of spring flowers from an old schoolfriend:

with cheery pix of lovely spring flowers!
