But before that, a bit of this. Bet no-one else chooses this for Rosie Scribble's Shiny Happy Meme. But it makes me smile, and always will....
Ok, now to business. I've been known, in my time, to be a little inattentive. I once asked why a colleague who'd just left to have a baby wasn't at work; I mistook Her Majesty the Queen for her mother; and at primary school I failed completely to notice that the teacher I was impersonating was standing right behind me. (I wondered why my friends had suddenly gone quiet!)
Anyway, so... no surprise then that I failed to notice this. And this. I must be about the only person in blog-land, and I've only just finished reading all three hundred of the comments. Still, better late than never. And, for what it's worth, my take on it all is simple. I love blogs. I wish I had more time to read them. I've completely given up reading newspapers as I find the interactive blogging-process so much more rewarding. (The writing's often a sight more entertaining too!) And that's all there is to say, really. I, er, like blogs and blogging. I hope that's enough of a recommendation.
To counter any of the 'other stuff' out there Tanya (Bump2Basics) has tagged me in the meme that Sally Whittle started. The task is to recommend three new (to me) blogs, which is an absolute and utter pleasure. So here they are.
First, CareyAnnie from the eponymous blog, CareyAnnie's Mumma Said who describes herself as 'just' a mum but who in fact is mum to three, step-mum to one and prolific user of the word 'lovely'. Next, Hayley at SingleMotherhoodChallenges - blogger, mother, student and Indian Head Massage exponent. And third, Michelle from Mummy From the Heart, mum to six-year-old JJ and two-year old twins Miss M and Miss E. So there it is. Three new (to me) blogs, and all well worth visiting.
I suppose I ought now to be tagging other people. But having driven people crazy looking for an object for the mo-meme last week, I'm going to keep my head down. If you'd like to play, then you're 'it'. And this is a good game. Because, at the end of the day, we're all on about the same thing, us parent-bloggers. But we all have such different things to say. And that's what keeps me reading!
