British Mummy Blogger of the Week


I've done it. It's Sunday morning, and I do not have a hangover; my body is truly a temple. And just to prove how much so, I was compus mentis enough this morning to check in on the comments on yesterday's post and realise just how much consternation my reference to JR and Sue-Ellen's divorce being 25 years ago caused out there.

In my unusually Sunday-morning clear mind I thought I would put you out of your misery and check the facts on Wikipedia. First, the good news. I was wrong, it wasn't 25 years ago. Second, the bad news. I was 3 years short. It was 28 years ago that Soapland's favourite couple split for the first time. And yes, that does make me feel ancient. However, for those of you grasping at straws, they also split again (after remarrying) in 1988. Cold comfort, I know; that's still a long 21 years past...

But enough trivia, let's get to the important stuff; this week's recommended British Blogging Parent of the Week. Dylan Jones writes that his blog 'Brit out of Water' is;

'...about the trials and tribulations of moving to New York from London, and coming to terms with life in a new land - as a husband, a stepdad...and soon to be a dad.'

And I heartily recommend that you check out his memories of spending the day with Michael Jackson. Well; a Michael Jackson impersonator, anyway...

  1. I'm not speaking to you now. I thought 25 years was bad enough. 28 you say?? :-(((

  2. As I seem to be one step behind MT, I too have to agree with her.
    Not talking to you.
    28 years????
    Feeling very ancient after having a birthday yesterday.

  3. MT, go for the 21 year option. I've met you, I know you're young enough...

    MtW, well... Maybe a margarita will make us both feel a little less weathered...

  4. Thank you for the accolade - very much appreciated!

    And JR and Sue Ellen are Soapland's favourite couple?? I thought that was Ken and Deidre?!

  5. Good point BooW; they certainly (Ken and Deirdre, that is), are now. At the time though I reckon JR and Sue Ellen would have given them a pretty good run for their money...


Go on - you know you want to...
