British Mummy Blogger of the Week

Bing bong, British Mummy Blogger of the Week calling...

Another beautiful Sunday, but this time I actually got out to enjoy some of it with a bbq at some friends after the Silver Cross sponsored bloggers' meet up at the Rainforest Cafe this lunch time. More of that tomorrow, but in the meantime I just wanted to say thanks to Amy of Wolfstar, Susanna of A Modern Mother and of course the guys from Silver Cross for organising it...

Now, on to this week's British Mummy Blogger of the Week. I spent yesterday evening (a Saturday night social life? What's that?) going through yet more new joiners on the network and as a result my eyes are square and I am WAY behind on catching up on my blogroll. The flip side of that however is that I did get to discover some great new blogs, and this weeks's recommendation is that you visit the blog of a Brit living in Orange County, California. Lorna of CalifLorna says:

I write about my life here in the US, my family, travels and what I miss about the UK (and why it’s better - sometimes).

And being the proud posessor of a recieved pronounciation accent (aka 'Queen's English) myself, I have to admit to particularly enjoying Lorna's most recent post. Or should that be 'one' must admit to having particularly enjoyed her most recent post? In any case, you would never catch one pulling the same trick one's self and hamming up one's British accent when one thinks it might make a difference. That would be plain wrong. Obviously...

  1. Great to meet you today PM! And a nice recommendation for the blog. It's the same in Canada, people are often quite keen on the British accent. I think it's because a large percentage of the US and Canada populace have British heritage and resultantly a big soft spot for all things Brit.

  2. Thank you for choosing me! I've only just started blogging and was very nervous about it. I'm really enjoying the blogging community and the British Mummy Bloggers site. It's great to be able to find other bloggers, especially the ex pat ones.

  3. Ace blog recommendation there PM - I used to be an ex-pat in California myself so found it an interesting read!

  4. Thanks so much for doing this.

    I've tagged you for recycle week, check it out:

  5. Another excellent choice, PM.
    Now do come over to my blog where you have been tagged in the first ever British Mummy Bloggers Recycling Meme! It'll be a laugh.

  6. Sparx, hi, and good to meet you too! (And there was me thinking that people in the US like my accent because it's sexy. Instead it's because I remind them of their great great great great great great grandma...)

    Lorna, a pleasure!

    LBB, it's a small world. And in that case have you checked out Mothership's blog?

    Susanna, I'll be over asap!

    Rosie, should I be afraid? Because, I am, a little...

  7. rushing over now, she'll be asleep. Sssh, I'll try not to wake her!


Go on - you know you want to...
