British Mummy Blogger of the Week

>> Sunday, 14 March 2010

Happy Mother's Day one and all... I hope you're having a good one, and are being plied by your nearest and dearest with breakfast in bed, hot and cold running newspapers, refreshments and flowers on tap, and lunch out somewhere suitably lovely.

Obviously, none of that has happened here.

But my day so far has featured a walk through a snowy wood in sunshine bright enough to require sunglasses, thrills and spills on the sledging hill, and an eyeful courtesy of a (quite fit looking) gentleman who chose the moment we stopped to investigate the swimming hole in the local frozen lake to strip off completely and have a quick dip.

So I guess today hasn't been all bad...

This week's British Mummy Blogger of the week just happens to be - at the time of writing this post - BMB's most recent member. Fiona Strachan writes of herself that she is blogging about adoption, attachment, parenting & family life, and that:

I blog about experiences of adoption from my perspective as an adoptive parent - a bit of personal stuff and some handy hints type stuff.

Fiona Strachan's blog is a window onto a world that many of us on BMB have no experience of. As she writes in her most recent post, although she may not have been a mum to her children from birth, she is 'Mum in all the important day to day ways that matter now.'

For the British Mummy Bloggers Ning, click here. (Note: It's called 'Mummy', but Dads can be members too).

Mother's day? what's mother's day?

nb conversation over breakfast with best beloved:

I said to him over eggs and bacon, ‘what am I?’

Um. Beautiful?
Nope. What am i?
A wonderful wife. (confidently)
And …?
A wonderful wife and a beautiful one?
Nope … a wife and a ….?? (c'mon this isn't hard for god's sake)
Mother? A Mother?! (as in eureka moment)
Yes. And what day is it?
Um. Sunday?
(at this point he looks a bit worried)
But it’s not the 21st January is it? (my birthday)
Um ... Errr ... I give up.
It’s mothers day, I tell him.
Which one? He asks.
The English one. Like us.
Oh. And then a bit sheepishly (as I had made tea and cooked breakfast), happy mother’s day.

Hope you had a good one? WHAT do the Ruskies do for Mother's Day? xx
