Going to kick off this week's new blog posts with my weekly links post.

Hi - is anybody fed up with the Bromley My Time 50 week swimming programme and paying for lessons during the school holidays?

FlamingoBingo Sun 25-Sep-11 12:12:29

Um...Dingle? What do you mean? Have you posted in the right place?

FrauLindor Sun 25-Sep-11 12:12:48


If you follow FB's links, you will discover that I have been hacked. Or rather my web host has been hacked. What a pain.

Would love to add a post today, but will have to save my rant till later.

Did you mean to post here?

My second Special Links Sunday

Sorry to hear that MmeL. I hope they get it sorted soon.

Dingle...wrong thread, perhaps?

Thanks to the Mighty Tee, my blog is up and running again. And I have had a little rant about bloody hackers here

Seems there were thousands affected - the parent company, InMotionHosting was hacked as well.

It shouldn't matter so much, but I was very pleased to reach 10,000 views today! It's taken six months, which makes me small fry in the big world of blogging, but it's nice to know I'm finding an audience out there. Thanks to anyone who has ever taken a look!

This week I've been thinking about my autistic son's use of eye contact...

OH back from war

This blog contains before and after interviews between him and I. They are fairly honest and you can see the change that war causes even if it is subtle. War is stressful. But onwards and upwards can breathe again now until the next time.

Sorry to hear about the blog Mme L - really annoying!! Grrrr...hope it's fixed soon!

Amodmillymum Sun 25-Sep-11 22:14:03

Congrats BS Dad - 10,000 is awesome!! Don't stop the blog rock!

Well I have come home from DD4's birthday tea to be greeted with an amazing surprise!

This morning a fellow parent blogger in the US (with 3,000 FB followers) tweeted a link to my blog post about preparing for life with a toddler and a baby. My average daily hits (at the moment - it is growing steadily all the time) for the days I post is about 120 - today it was 606!!! shock

Hrly rate was 18 this morning, was 87 just now grin

I hope it converts into some regular readers!

Congratulations to BSDad

And to FB. How fab.

I need to thank my hacker, it seems as I am seeing a lot of google hits. Not as much as FB's but not bad for a ranty post that is nothing to do with my normal blog.

Back to more normal stuff now.

Raising Independent Children

I was inspired by the thread about reef knots.

breadfortheboys Sun 25-Sep-11 22:56:45

Yay BS Dad, DB and MmeLindor grin

breadfortheboys Sun 25-Sep-11 22:57:24

Oops, Frau, forgot about namechange smile

FrauLindor Sun 25-Sep-11 22:59:04

S'allright. Am going back to Mme, I think.

Feels more "me"

Amodmillymum Sun 25-Sep-11 23:12:36

Frau reminds me of The Sound of Music - although it was Fraulein Maria...Mme sounds hotter..Frau is frostier....also makes me think of the TV programme Heidi, with goat Peter and Grandpa - did you watch it?

MmeLindor. Sun 25-Sep-11 23:17:19

Frau is stodgier, I think. Apfelstrudel instead of tarte au pommes.

Yes, love Heidi. Was given the book when I was about 7 or 8 and recently read it to DD.

Amodmillymum Sun 25-Sep-11 23:37:31

Yes, you could be a cheeky Tarte the book too...can't wait to read it to DD...night nights smile

FlamingoBingo Sun 25-Sep-11 23:39:20

Frau - someone just tweeted this to me: 'Are you aware the author at salt & caramel has made a translation error and the post is therefore incorrect?' confused

She's Dutch, btw...not sure if that makes any difference!

FlamingoBingo Sun 25-Sep-11 23:39:36

PS. was about the formula post

MmeLindor. Sun 25-Sep-11 23:45:44

She posted a comment, I will have a proper look tomorrow

FlamingoBingo Sun 25-Sep-11 23:50:23

Cool - glad you know smile

MmeLindor. Sun 25-Sep-11 23:54:42

Had another look and have commented.

She may not be aware but my German is excellent (even if I do say so myself) so I did understand the German websites.
