No Need for the Sunday papers 18

Is it Sunday already?  I sometimes wonder where the week goes and I am sure we could all do with a few extra hours in each day to spend some time on ourselves.  It is half term week this coming week for us, so we have plans to not really have plans and to spend some time cuddling and just relaxing as a family, but we do need to fit in a trip to the hairdressers and also the show shop.  What are you plans for this coming week?

So grab a coffee, tea or whatever is your poison and let me introduce you to some great  mummy blogger posts I have read from this past week.

With the half term in mind I loved Ellen from In a Bun Dance’s post about letting our children walk on the wild side.  I am a great believer in getting children out and enjoying the fresh air.

Ghostwritermummy tackles the competitive mums that always seem to be at events and children after school activities these days.

Dawn from Knees up mother brown asks us all to give blood in her post, which is a plea close to my heart (as I have regular transfusions).  She gave birth to her little boy Oscar this week, six weeks early and a blood transfusion saved her life.  So please, if you can give blood.

Savymumof 4 is feeling invisible this week, at the school gate, at home and in the virtual world of the Internet.  I have to say that this post really resonated with me, as there are times when no one in my life is listening, when I really need them to.

Nickie at Typcast bemoans the lack of words in blog posts these days, I actually agree with her and have raised this on the Blogger.Ed forum in the past.  I do not want to see 100 pictures 3 times a week, I want to read interesting, inspiring and thought provoking posts, or alternatively I love reading about family life, it gives me a good old dose of virtual curtain twitching!

So have you seen any really great posts this week, please do leave a comment and let me know and I leave you with some flowers to brighten up this gray day.

      @wendy: Glad that you like it. I think that sometimes we can all feel invisible. It is a horrible feeling and I hope that you are feeling a little better today

      @Ellen Arnison: You are welcome. I love reading new things and as I said I am a real fan of getting the boys outside to enjoy and make the most of the fresh air

      @Liska: Hello, thanks for you comment and I will be over to take a look at your blog too. I have read Jay’s post, but as someone who has recently lost my mum, I found the post not for me, as I am actually grieving the loss of a person.

    it’s so horrible to feel invisible and it has happened to me, usually at the time when I need to feel noticed, or is it just that I don’t feel invisible when I am happy, only becoming aware when I am unhappy?! Who knows, but you’re not alone x

    Who needs Sunday papers with these Blog links! I must go check them out.

    I kind of agree with your take on Blog posts and endless photos. They are nice to do at times though. So are the Blog Hops… they can be the only way to get your blog out there at times. I guess the trick is having a bit of balance in blog content?

    Enjoy your Sunday and Mid-term 🙂

    Hello Jenny, I hope you’ve had a better day today and you’ve lots of cuddles and hot chocolate.I plan to give blood this year, something I’ve never done.I’ve abstained from do linkies, photos and blog hops this month.Two reasons.One I’ve done loads recently and two due to switching to self hosting.I would like to wish you all a happier week and lots of fun.

      @Aly: I dont have an issue with linkys and photo’s per say, I just think that sometimes it can fill up my reader. I am all for inclusive and love the Friday ones that Chris at Thinly Spread and Ella at Notes from home do, do actually add the links in to their posts and are great. I hope the self hsoting has gone well and well done on the giving blood front, it is down to people that do that I am still alive, so thanks.
