British Mummy Blogger of the Week

>> Sunday, 20 December 2009

So we're nearly at Christmas. There are many reasons why I know this to be true; here are a couple:

1. I'm at my parents and have been drinking at lunchtime. This never usually happens (the drinking at lunchtime, that is, not the being at my parents), mainly because I know it's the fastest way to an afternoon spent snoozing attractively on the sofa and waking to a patch of dribble on my shoulder...

2. My parents' Christmas tree has already come crashing down. It's not Christmas until there has been at least one smashed bauble and various muffled curses from my mother as she hoovers up the shards of glass and pine-needles whilst bitterly regretting having made that 'final' touch to the placement of the pressies she had placed prettily on the branches...

In any case, enough lunch-time wine-induced wittering; it's time for British Mummy Blogger of the Week. I thought that this week and next I might do something slightly different, however. In the last year the number of members in the BMB ning have increased amazingly; we've gone from an original roll-call of about 3 to 832 at the last count, a lot of whom have joined recently.

In fact, when I started writing the Mummy Blogger of the week post last May there were 235 members, which means that if you're one of the 597 who've joined more recently you might not have seen the earlier Bloggers of the Week, so I've decided to list all of them out - over this Sunday and next Sunday - for you to take a look at when the thrill of Christmas specials on tv and 'tidying up' the edges of the stilton and cheddar finally prove to be too much. Enjoy!

Nice idea - nearly as nice as drinking at lunchtime...

What a great idea - will give me something to read whilst I'm hiding upstairs cuddling Babygirl and avoiding over excitement downstairs !

Why does you mother insist on placing the presents on the lower branches? Has she also been imbibing in to much wine at lunchtime?

Fab idea...and I have just discovered some new blogs too, thank you.

Hope you have a lovely Christmas x

Thanks Liz!

LGF, yes, they should both help over the next few days...

Grit, same to you, and glad you like the list

CJ, Happy Christmas to you too and dried up turkey? Just make sure you have plenty of mayonnaise to hand...

MaM, gosh, blogging as refuge? Who would do such a thing?

Irene, I couldn't possibly comment (and don't tell me you've never made the same classic Christmas tree-overload mistake?)

WAD's, thanks for commenting and am very happy to be of help!

a very merry happy Christmas to you, dear PM.
I'm still up at 1am wrapping presents while Husband LITERALLY SNORES. Asked him earlier for the third time if he'd been Christmas shopping with the children yet and he looked puzzled and faintly anxious and said 'No, is there a reason I should?'
Need drink...

Go on - you know you want to...
