Ahhh what a wonderful weekend! I am being all domestic and not only have I paid attention to my blog, I’ve played around with some recipes and made my first ever Lemon Meringue Pie and I’m in the process of making a chocolate fudge brownie pie as well. I’ll post the recipe for that one later.
I feel a bit like Samantha Stevens (Of Bewitched) running around and doing the laundry. However I haven’t been able to hang them up as there is a rather horrid looking spider who has taken up residence on a heeeeeee-uge web across the line! So fuck that, the washing can wait. Shudder. Thank God for Bank Holiday weekend hey!!!
Sophie has been good as gold – clambering up and down the stairs at high speed and babbling away to herself. She can say duck and bird and sometimes confuses the two but that’s ok because she is CUTE. Sophie actually had a second nap today which she hasn’t actually done in a very long time. I wonder whether she is having a growth spurt now? I must look this up. Her hair is getting crazy long to the point her fringe is almost in her eyes so I’m going to have to invest in some clips!
The birth stories I requested are coming in thick and fast and I’m absolutely stunned by the social media response. I did get a rather funny message though from someone asking me to discuss circumcision – I think they want me lynched or something, but I said no – being the mother of a girl I have 0 opinion on boys’ penises and until I have a boy I won’t bother with that discussion!
Sometimes I hate the fact that I neglect this blog – I have loved writing it ever since it started in November 2012. I enjoy discussing the parenting issues out there on the very wide internet and other times I get so guilty because life is just getting busier and busier! I’d suggest I hire myself a ghost writer but then it wouldn’t be me, and I love to write!
I do have three other blog posts in the pipeline at the moment, one of which is going to be up tonight but the other two not just yet. I have to write several at once at the moment which isn’t easy especially with Sophie crawling at high speed!
Everyone who comes to view here, I now have a Facebook page for this blog, which I will now be making more frequent visits to and posting discussions so please feel free to get involved.
Right – chocolate fudge pies are DONE and I have a dinner to cook so I shall wave my floury hands and sign out. My mother would cry – there is a teeny tiny bit of flour on the oven at the moment. I never used to be allowed to bake in her kitchen but that’s ok – I have my own one now mwahahaha! Ta ta!
