Blimey I hope I've done the link right this time, I'm a bit rubbish at links on here. I just posted a thanks to people who have encouraged me on my journey recently.

OK a big fat fail!! Never mind I'll leave it rather than make it worse.

FlamingoBingo · 27/11/2011 09:49

Dilly :) Did you get my email a couple of weeks ago? Are you coming to Costa this afternoon?

DillyTante · 27/11/2011 11:16

Hi FB, have tweeted. Sorry, I was waiting to see if I could make but dh is working Saturdays at the moment. Doesn't give us much time to Do Stuff, house is a bomb site, making Xmas presents etc. Sorry to let you down. Should be every other Saturday after Christmas. I will be a good feminist then!

I have reviewed the new Lego Harry Potter Wii game Hope it's useful to anyone thinking of buying it for Christmas. Also managed to found out how you can get a free PC demo of the game, so have included that link.

And my terrible competition runneth on - the comments are getting really funny. Avoid if you have a foot phobia though.

A re-post to yesterday's message to David Cameron.

Not sure I'll be blogging today.

BsDad · 27/11/2011 13:01

Is it too early for blog posts about Christmas?

CinnamonStix · 27/11/2011 13:12

@BsDad We're borderline December now so I think you're safe! Though I did write my first Christmas post of the year a fair few weeks ago.. Whoops.

I've just discovered Archie the Inventor's secret persona..

Marks thread.

Not sure if I can blog today, lots going on. And bloody blog is not up and running again yet. Meh.

Hello, I'm a newish blogger, so would love any helpful feedback. I've just spent most of the day moving DS2 from toy to television so as to finish this post on 'The Upside of Parenting Alone', ah the irony

staranise · 27/11/2011 18:34

Here you go - bit of a random one, about DD2's creative stage and my inability to keep any of her lovely creations!

SweetestThing · 27/11/2011 20:10

MmeLindor, I hope you get blogged up again soon. I always enjoy reading yours - you make me think!

Have blogged today - Things still more positive

DillyTante · 27/11/2011 20:49

ATO, do you have a smartphone? I use the wordpress app a lot for convenient writing of blog posts etc.

Today I talk about the lights of my life.

Sunday night ramblings about thanksgiving, leftovers and breastfeeding.

dillytante thanks for the wordpress app tip. I'll have to check that out. Loved your post about lights btw

SenseofEntitlement · 27/11/2011 21:36

I know Camel's Hump isn't actually on the list yet, but it will be when it launches on Thursday, so here are some of the latest posts:

Prisoners, Suckers and Rioters - the numbers game

Xenophobia in the British Press - Richard Littlejohn and his terrible sense of humour

Work Capability Box Ticking - the ATOS work capability test and mental health

Caveman Cooking - the ultimate old fashioned diet


I've been neglecting reading the MN blogs recently Blush Will sit down now with a brew...

ATOmum · 27/11/2011 21:36

Thanks Dilly, I do have a smartphone and I hadn't even thought of using that. I think I'm on Blogger, so will have to investigate if there's something similar. Just read your blog and now am suffering Twilight Turtle envy - I may have to start saving up for one!

droitwichmummy · 27/11/2011 22:24

Just added my latest offering. Will be reading strawberry17 with interest although I am not on that particular type of little pills (yet!)

Just a ramble really to gear myself up for GP tomorrow

Lifeofanexpatparent · 27/11/2011 22:43

lowimpactmama, glad Thanksgiving went well on saturday! I felt so sick after eating too much on Thursday. Why do I do it to myself?! I'm sure that's not the point.

I've put up my final installment of 30 things I'm thankful for

Hope everyone has a good Monday.

MissPB · 28/11/2011 08:37

Loads to read already this week! If it's the Advent edition then I am glad to put todays post - I have made my gingery Christmas cake at last! Made me feel rather Christmassy I must say (more than wrapping up a pile of presents for the school Christmas fair did!)

PetiteRaleuse · 28/11/2011 09:01
Lifeofanexpatparent · 28/11/2011 09:49

strawberry, had a look at your link and think i know what went wrong:


You only need to put a space in between your actual link and 'Appreciation' (or whatever you would like to phrase it) and then finish it off with the brackets

lowimpactmama · 28/11/2011 11:02

Expat was also feeling a little sick by Sunday evening (had 6 slices of pie over the weekend - much as I love it, am now a bit sick of pumpkin!). Must learn self-restraint Grin

MissPB that is a gorgeous looking recipe. Am tempted to try it this weekend. I'm not into booze at the moment (am 23 weeks pregnant and pregnancy turns me right off alcohol!) but ginger wine is just so Christmassy and yum!

MmeLindor. · 28/11/2011 11:06

Am chatting to naice man in Ireland about my blog. Should be up and running soon. I HOPE

lowimpactmama · 28/11/2011 11:15

MmeLindor hope it's sorted soon. The Irish are great (disclaimer: I'm Irish Smile).

PetiteRaleuse · 28/11/2011 11:18

good luck with that MmeL I think you're being very patient. Or you seem to be online anyway. Are you secretly chucking stuff around your house in anger or are you reall this patient? Grin
