What I enjoyed reading lately

6 10 2009

Peggy at Perfectly Happy Mum made a confession last week. That she had been reading posts but due to time being a precious commodity she does not often get time to comment.

She could have been writing about me. I am following so many blogs these days that I can only just keep up with reading the posts. Occasionally I comment but usually I am finding a snatched five minutes here (usually in the middle of the night as I feed and settle Piran) and there and reading via my iPod, which makes commenting a nightmare. So, I have introduced a new system of adding a star to the posts I loved the most and then I plan on following in the footsteps of Peggy and doing a post that contains links to them all. I hope that if you have not read these posts before you will click on the links and have a read.

Where better to start than this post from Peggy, where she talks about her memories for each of the seasons. It has made me think about the fact that I will be making these sort of memories for Piran in the future, such an exciting prospect.

I love this post from Zooarchaeologist, where she describes her idea of heaven. This is a game that Mr C and I play on a regular basis, describing our dream house, where it will be located, what it will be like to actually live there. I will write mine sometime soon.

A new addition to my blogroll is Sew Scrumptious. Louise’s mum is 70 on Christmas Day and she has decided to give her 70 presents, one for each year of her life. I think that this is such a wonderful idea, and was glad to help out with some seeds from Mr C’s garden and some other bits and pieces.

Next we have a couple of posts that make me both nervous and excited about this being a mum lark. Tara shares the 5 things they don’t tell you about having a boy and Potty Mummy is having to deal with some very highbrow questions from her two boys. Cripes!

So, that about covers it, although I would also like to add a thank you to Sally at Who’s the Mummy for compiling the Top 100 UK Parent Blogs and Bloggers again this month. I am slipping quite dramatically (all of this lurking and raising a baby no doubt) but still hanging on in there at number 94. The problem with this is that I find more fun and interesting blogs to read which makes my google reader overflow and only adds to the no time for commenting issue!

Hope you have enjoyed my pick of favourite posts. Please leave a comment if you have read something you would like to share with me!

Lovely, glad you enjoyed reading it. I read lots too but hardly comment these days, i'm slightly worried people will take my comments the wrong way!

You and me both.I read so many blogs now I don't have time for TV or books.I read far more than is on my blogroll and, as you say, rarely have the time to comment.But personally I love to keep going back because a. you learn so much and b. you really do get to know someone.I suppose it's like a long running TV show (stick with me here!) where you grown to love the characters over the months.Thanks so much for the mention, really appreciate it.And for the record? All that scary stuff people mention? Doesn't matter a whole heck of a lot when your boy is old enough to say things like: "you are the most beautiful girl I know mummy." x
