British Mummy Blogger of the Week

>> Sunday, 31 January 2010

After yesterday's 'isn't life in Moscow wonderful' experience, today brought me down to earth with a bump. And as so often is the case, Ikea is indirectly to blame, but the disconnect between men and women is the real culprit.

I ask you, who in their right mind would start to assemble a flat-pack chest of drawers (not one drawer, not 2, or 3, but FIVE, no less), in the children's bedroom only 30 minutes before their bed-time?

A man, that's who.

But let's not dwell on that; instead we will move smoothly on to this British Mummy Blogger of the Week. The Coffee Lady writes of herself:

'I am Trying New Things. I am turning off my cynicism and sarcasm and turning my face up like an amazed flower towards the wonder and joy of life. Well, I'll give it a go at least.'

And if you're at all interested in 'Frasier', Anthony Head, and Lempsip I recommend you check out this post where she convinces me, for one, that the only way to deal with a heavy cold is to retreat to the sofa...

I was most amused when I bought my daughter her first junior bed from IKEA. The instructions had two men putting it together when in fact it only took one woman!

Crystal Jigsaw 31 January 2010 at 21:08  

Do they actually think?!! Men, I mean!

Great choice of blogger xx

It's that 'seize the moment' mentality. Unfortunately with men it's almost always the WRONG moment!

sharon 1 February 2010 at 03:11  

To mediocremum, my son's large cot/junior bed was assembled by one 7 mths pregnant woman whilst HE looked on in total bewilderment!

Expat mum 1 February 2010 at 15:43  

Oh no- the Little Guy has identified IKEA shelving as a "must have" for his bedroom. My stomach just lurches when the Ball & Chain attempts stuff like this. Perhaps I should just do it?

Potty Mummy 1 February 2010 at 18:28  

Brit, yep, me too! (On the driving beserk thing, I mean)

Mediocremum, and let that be a lesson to them...

Crystal, do you really need an answer to that question?

Sharon, too true. And of course when WE do something like that, we're just being spontaneous.

EPM - do it yourself, definitely. Although of course you could try and get and Ikea handyman to come and put it together for you, which is a service they offer here for a 10% charge of the cover price of whatever they're putting together... (Obviously last nights' fiasco was as a result of NOT using that service...

You will discover billions of internet websites on the web these days. Google has to crawl every 1 and do a mathematical calculation to determine which one's are worthly with the page that has built it's reputation, Page 1. It looks at web-site content, tags, words in bold, OBL, linking sites and web pages you link to. You will discover a million of calculations it goes by way of, but to make it very simple to fully grasp, think of it as a popularity contest and your web-site has to be socially well-known. You call for other web-sites linked to yours and you would like publications you can get. You require to have submissions of all types to compete with the heavy hitters who are SEO-ing all of the time. Most niche's require everyday Seo to dominate. WIth that being said, you might possibly ask yourself, where is all this time going to come from? That will probably be the issue most people have and why not loads of from the internet websites you can get perform pretty well.

I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to type of just spend in days of yore staring at it as a cut of catharsis. In a opportunity, it helps me with meditation, to reduce stress and scarcely deem just about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, a substitute alternatively of dolls and cars I've in any case collected more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, musical boxes etc. So I was most enchanted when I found the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Inconsiderable Show Laser Outstrip Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com under the aegis the Toys section. It's like a harmonious box, a spinning better, and a light verify all rolled into one. Which is prodigious relaxation! The gyroscope will concoct for around a minute. The laser explanation show with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a measure corresponding exactly fiddle with that my friends be subjected to also been most amused with.

My dogs are also pretty intrusive around the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They evermore follow the gyroscope as it spins, although at earliest they kept barking at the laser slight boast, and also because it produces music. But after they got used it, they've stopped barking but due save up following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also unbelievably amused alongside it. On occasion it's meet to possess diverting toys throughout the house so that you can leave the toy on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you go fit out viands or get changed. The gyroscope is a particular such trinket with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a design on it, and produces a taper exposition with red, blue, and green colours. Steal a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser joyful show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that great but decorous adequacy to consider any redone guest to the house. The gyroscope is red and negro, making it look particular imperturbable, and slightly masculine with that dragon imprint.

The music luminescence plain gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also euphemistic pre-owned this gyroscope to eye-opener my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy thing of decorating the pension room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as rise so that the laser brighten register produces a dreamed-up effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the sunrise effects created a rather dreamt-up atmosphere. She loved it, by the style, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my non-fulfilment shopping placement in return all gifts and ideas in support of fancied occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser light show gyroscope can maybe be a superb Christmas give-away looking for the toddler or even the favoured! Alternatively, the gyroscope can really be a polite summation to the traditional Christmas decorations. I can fancy placing it near the Christmas tree and maybe spinning it when guests succeed in the house. Looks like [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] is getting my function anyway again!
