Happy Easter everyone! smile
Looks like I'm starting the next thread for this week with My Favourite Smells Of Spring

And here is my Silent Sunday

Happy Easter!

A very non-Eastery fashion-related post today as I have found the perfect spring boyfriend coat

Easter posts to follow!

Happy Chocolate Day everybody.

I tried to be clever and schedule several post over the course of the week, but that blatantly failed. So here are the three posts I posted today:

Animal brooches I made
An exhibition by teenage artists
The one where I get to review some free stuff

Nice coat Jerry, no way I could pull it off though!

I've decided that I don't need any more new music. That's me done. I'm sticking with what I've got.

No more new music ...

Happy Easter Monday!
I have just blogged about my girls' dolls bed, which I seem to have ameliorated to a slightly alarming extend. Pimp my dolls bed was the title I considered and rejected. I thought it might get me some quite odd traffic....

Happy no-work Monday! I've done my first review for Mumsnet Review Panel. Woooooop smile) here it is!

Did you know that women with sons die earlier than women with daughters?

I dedicated a morning to science to find out why...

It?s official: Sons are bad for your health

My thoughts on the bedroom tax

I blogged about a small swarm of beetles , girls and crafts, boys and balloons.

I don't understand why grown women feel the need to strip, parade around and bend over searching for talc.

I mean, who actually uses talcum powder - apart from babies (and me, when I was a Goth, trying to get the Robert Smith look)?

One for you gym bunnies out there!

I didn't make a simnel cake but I did make a fruity simnel tray bake - avoid if you don't like marzipan. And also, a new way to make fish pie. My daughter said she would eat it again. Which is praise indeed. Check it out.

The Little Raindrop introduces young children to the water cycle in a beautifully illustrated picture book story.

Thanks bumperlicious - looks a bit wrong on the hanger but on is a dream!

Today's blog post is a recipe for luxury lemon bread and butter pudding

This is the nuts! Ignore the slightly burnt bits on my dodgy photo, this dessert is really delicious!

DCs have been driving me bonkers this morning, so decided to try this craft to keep them occupied- finger paint rainbow trees - went down a treat, worked well with my toddler and baby, kept them apart for a short amount of time!

For all those open-minded, super-spontaneous twenty-somethings who are now diary and calendar driven forty-somethings...this is for you....

It's that time of year when parents of older teenagers begin to get a bit lost in the applying for university quagmire.
So here's part one of mumtoteens guide for parents with teenagers heading to uni in September

My babies are still happy to be together. But for how much longer?

Looking for a family hotel for a quick getaway?

Tree-house bunkbeds? Parents own space?

I am getting a wee bit fed up with this 'spring' rubbish now so am trying to make it summer in my house

This is my post on the Philpott case and why it really has nothing to do with welfare, and everything to do with violent relationships.

Anyone else have happy memories of den dwelling monsters as a child...?

While we have been waiting for spring we have been reading A New Home for Little Fox. This beautiful picture book follows two foxes as they discover what kind of homes different animals and birds live in. It's a lovely story for spring smile

Any one else doing the 5:2 diet? Here's my 5:2 Friday post This may become a regular thing. One the other hand, it may not. But I have lost 1/2 a stone since half term.

RecipeJunkie Fri 05-Apr-13 09:22:52

I also wrote a post about a lovely local rapeseed oil that I've discovered - all the flavour of olive oil, but none (well not quite as many) of the miles.

Two slightly different blogs today...

The perils of being the only female in a house overdosed with testosterone!

Taking Control Back - The Expert Patient Programme

It's been so long since I have posted. I lost my writing mojo properly. Well, I am not convinced I have it back, but I now feel I something useful to say, so, before I update on my first EPP session I am reposting my post about what EPP is...I know technically it's not a post for this week, but can I get away with it? to raise your interest?

Something people with chronic health conditions might find useful.

This post was about the fears my daughter and I had when she started a new year at school. Before and After, A Year In The LIfe of You Enjoy.
