The write up – Blog camp Birmingham 2014

The write up – Blog camp Birmingham 2014

I have been looking forward to this since I booked my ticket. I went to Blog Camp Bristol in 2011 so I half knew what to expect. The format had changed since then which was a changed that really worked. Instead of getting in outsiders for Blog Camp this year with their wisdom, all the sessions were by bloggers except maybe the photography one’s, which sadly clashed with my other choices so I did not go … Read entire article »

Me, my blog and I – Celebrating 2 years of blogging

Me, my blog and I – Celebrating 2 years of blogging

This little space of mine, I love my blog.  My place to sometimes escape to track my mind on just what I am doing that moment, instead of worrying about all the other things that trawl through my head. A place to share with you, my lovely readers my recipes I have tried, most often made up and tried again just to be sure. A place to realise one of my true passions is cooking and a … Read entire article »

Yes ‘Bloglax’ is a word I came up with last week or was it the week before, hmmm yes that is how it is at the moment!!! Anyway I was saying it on a comment thread on Tots100 Facebook page. Bloglax to me means being lax on your blog which at time of coming up with the word I wasn’t being too much but now I have been!!! We could of course switch the letters around … Read entire article »

If only you could press publish straight from your head!

If only you could press publish straight from your head!

Is it me or do you come up with the best idea’s and in my case posts in your head and that is where they stay. I write some amazing posts when I am out walking the dogs. The idea’s flow, they are funny, wise, interesting, quirky and sometimes you may even gain some useful information too.  But these posts seem to only get published in my head, never quite make it to here and … Read entire article »

One of the things I love about having a blog is…

One of the things I love about having a blog is you feel you have an extra family in a way. My family is really small and where as some people have an overflow of family we fell a bit short on that. So on Bex’s birthday when she got lots of birthday message via twitter and here it really meant more to both Bex and me than just a happy birthday. Bex really appreciated the … Read entire article »

Blog Camp Bristol for me

Blog Camp Bristol for me

I had no idea what to expect from blog camp Bristol, who would be there or anything really. This was the first ‘Blog’ thing I had done. After a overnight stay at my brother’s, a bus trip feeling slightly nauseous was had. Thinking was it nerves or that the Indian take away from the night before was having a adverse effect. Outside the M-Shed a quick ask “Are you here for the blog camp?” at a … Read entire article »

A confession….

Last night I passed over my baby to my daughter and her friend. Just for the one night I might add. As I repeated how important my baby was, how they were to really look after her because well…. I stroked my babies back as I passed her over. I sorted a few things out for them all and then I left. Waking up I realised my baby was in their charge. As they were still sleeping soundly I could not go in and get my baby just in case I woke the sleeping. Downstairs I made a cup of tea, emptied the dishwasher, washed up the remaining. Not having my baby downstairs meant this was done much quicker without any distraction. That done I reached for a pen and paper. I felt lost, there … Read entire article »

My Sunday waffles

I am writing this on Saturday as the sun is supposed to be out in total full shine on Sunday and I fully intend to make the most of it. The week has been rather gorgeous full stop and as I type the sun is pouring in to the kitchen which is rather hot. This week has been rather busy, but in between times I have been enjoying reading all the different Cybermummy posts, though yet to read them all. Mummy from the Heart, Mostly yummy Mummy and Alexandra Residence to name but a few. Then Mummmy from the heart post yesterday about her quandary of her blogs made me think and I thought this could be my Sunday waffle. It was good timing as stress, I did two sponsored posts in a row. Not … Read entire article »

Two months of blogging and…

Well I have been blogging for just two months today so I thought I would do a little celebratory post, oh any excuse for a bit of a celebration. Actually this post really is not about me because although this blog is me (my sister reading my blog said it just like you talking phew I didn’t want to sound like anyone else) it is more about well the people I am finding along the way and I know there are lots more to discover so please feel free to point me in the right direction. Firstly I will  do a few newbies like me, Michelle at Old Fashioned Mummy and Jackie at Green Aspirations started out maybe a little before me, Michelle has just completed the A-Z daily challenge which hands … Read entire article »
