British Mummy Blogger of the Week

>> Sunday, 25 October 2009

One of the unexpected benefits of blogging - for me, at any rate - has been the fact that it gives me the opportunity to record 'interesting' thoughts. You know the sort of thing; those 'aha!' moments that you have whilst putting on the laundry, doing the shopping or during the school run, and which hang around for all of 2 or 3 hours before disappearing into the great filing cabinet that is your brain, never to be found again. I've frequently found myself talking to Husband, family or friends and thinking 'I know I had an intelligent thought this morning / last night / last week, and at the time I thought I must tell x. But what the hell was it?'

Well, here, on the day that the clock goes back and we gain an extra hour, is mine:

Why don't we make this day of the year - the day of the extra hour - Mother's Day?

Oh sure, I know Mother's Day is supposed to be all about being treated by your family, not having to lift a finger, and generally relaxing, but who gets to actually experience that - all day? So my proposal is that whilst we don't lose the opportunity to kick back and relax, we do it on a day when we all get an extra hour in bed and as a result we're so much better to equipped to cope with it if we the promised 'Mother's Day' treatment doesn't really appear...

Anyway, enough wittering. Living in a central London flat without a garden and with two children for whom mud is something to be looked at from the safety of the path rather than played in, it I'm not automatically the target audience for a blog about gardening, but this week's British Mummy Blogger of the Week has pulled me on board. Dawn Isaacs writes of herself:

'Once upon a time I led a glamorous life. I designed gardens for fabulous clients on big budgets. I created an award-winning Chelsea Flower Show Garden. I wore clothes that weren't decorated with baby vomit. Then I had a family... Now I live in a tiny Cambridgeshire village and, between doing the school run, changing nappies and dealing with tantrums, I try to pass on my love of gardening to my three children - Ava (6), Oscar (4) and Archie (1).'

And if you ever wondered how Michelle Obama and Nina and the Neurons could feature in the same post, here's a master class.

Crikey. How lovely. I'm chuffed.

You can tell this, because I have started to sound like a 1950s Bunty comic which is my default speech pattern when I'm delighted (slightly embarrassing but I guess there are verbal tics).

Thanks again - Dawnx

or even 'worse verbal tics'. Apparently, I also lose my ability to type...

Great choice, thanks!

You are SO right. Today should be mother's day. In fact in my book it is.
Off to check out LittleGreenFingers!

I'm so with you on the day with the extra hour in it should be for mothers. But how is it that i still spend that extra hour looking after children and not sleeping or relaxing in warm bath reading a good book?

Love little green fingers too - you do pick the best ones!

Dawn, a pleasure, really. Spiffing and top ho blog, what?

Thames, glad you approve.

RS, hope you liked our pseudo-mothers' day and the blog.

Brit; calpol. It's the only way...
