Am I the first to post?! If not apologies for starting a new thread, but can't see one for this week!
Here's my latest.
As it's Sunday, it's a Silent Sunday one and here's someone we met down in the woods today.. smile

A slightly belated May Day post from me, in which the boy and I make springtime crafts and get tangled up in a maypole.

Another Silent Sunday for me!

I wrote this post after a bad day last week. I created a spoof job advert for the post of a full time mother.

A few big facebook pages have posted it and it has attracted quite a few negative responses

It was only supposed to be a bit of a joke!

We're reading Kipper's Birthday in preparation for our own birthday celebrations smile

Today we are doing Nothing

It seems I am now someone who does crafts even without any persuasion from children - no children were harmed in the making of this craft

Nearly a year ago I stepped out of the work place to be at home more. I'm starting to realise that NOW is where it's at

Had my sorry self dragged back to the MN Flylady thread this week but I'm trying to take the same approach to being creative

ojbsmum Tue 07-May-13 11:36:53

I'm starting to catch up with my blog having spent more time enjoying the sun than writing. First, the joys of gardening with toddlers! www.babiesbooksandblackboards.com

After a very funny conversation between DS1&2 in the car the other day, a few musings on magic E vs split digraphs.

[http://adiscounttickettoeverywhere.wordpress.com/2013/05/07/its-a-split-digraph-at-school-and-a-magic-e-at-home/ It's a Split Digraph at School and a Magic E at Home]]

This week we are enjoying our annual spring tradition

Sometimes I take a step back and providing I don't stand on a piece of LEGO take a second to appreciate just how much the boys learn each and every day ....

Who doesn't battle with it at times- but I found it quite therapeutic writing about it from my perspective: Exposing What Fear Is Like

After an unexpectedly great camp here is my review of another great family orientated campfire campsite, Inwood.

I only started my blog a week ago and just joined the network. Hello smile

My blog is about cheese so I wrote about making cheese and the cheese of my childhood, Red Leicester: Cheesy stuff

Hi this is the final part of the adoptive mother interview. It is a compelling story and I have been lucky with my subject of choice. Enjoy!

An alternative to hummus. Butter bean and avocado spread/dip/whatever.

Me and My Dad are looking forward to Father's Day smile

On Monday night we took a Tiger home for tea

Look What I've Made! I actually completed my sewing challenge and am so chuffed with myself! I've posted some pics of the result and am sharing some of the tips I picked up along the way for other beginners.

AnnieWinehouse Wed 08-May-13 22:24:31

I made an Erdbeerkuchen.

ojbsmum Thu 09-May-13 08:05:55

Two this week! Gardening with toddlers mentioned earlier (edited and, I think, improved; I'd hit publish too soon!) & our first trip to the seaside with two walking toddlers...

I've taken the pledge for Fresh Week. But I will still be drinking gin.

RecipeJunkie Thu 09-May-13 09:16:01

sorry that link doesn't work. Try again. Tefal Fresh Week

AMillionMilesOfFun Thu 09-May-13 14:30:51

Two posts from me this week... uncharacteristically prolific.

I made some enamel tiles to exhibit at a local art trail, using a red cabbage print.

Frettchen Thu 09-May-13 15:23:31

I imagine there'll be many like it, but I've posted a reaction to Barbara Hewson's article on Spiked;
Let Kids Be Kids
Anyone else blogged about this?

On another note, I LOVE the idea of Silent Sunday - will definitely have to start doing that.

HappySnail Thu 09-May-13 17:26:10

Why should kids have all the fun? Well, they shouldn't. So I wrote about it! bit.ly/ZKAH2E

Craftsonsea Thu 09-May-13 20:23:58

Being the domestic goddess that I obviously am, I set fire to a tea towel last week, but never mind because I've upcycled it into a cute kids apron which obviously means I am superwoman or something wink

yassusarah Fri 10-May-13 08:06:07

Was in Corfu on holiday last week visiting old haunts and met up with a rather lovely old man

Hi all, Not been around for a while, and have name changed a few times since I was last here. I've enjoyed catching up on some blogs tho.

Today on the blog I am introducing my new Friday treats kicking off with a Sweet Butterfly Treat.

artifarti Fri 10-May-13 10:25:21

It's my first Fromage Friday and I'm trying Dorset Blue Vinny. Yum!

TheNewson Fri 10-May-13 11:33:26

The £1 cinema. The rustle of snacks as families empty a whole sweet shop of wrappers onto the floor. Baby Princess-Angel is crying the whole way through Men in Black 6, just because Tommy Lee Jones’ face was ripped off. Maybe you’ll endure another mind numbing CGI adventure, with a host of cute animals in some saccharine coated fable.

The Wind in The Willows retold as a picture book. One of a lovely series of classics for young children from Usborne.

I've reached book 5 in the Lymond Chronicles:

The Ringed Castle

Back after a break and arguing

Latest post is about my favourite adoption books for kids

NeedsTherapy Sat 11-May-13 09:13:19

Today I talk about a big scary decision for me anyway!
