Rediscovering the 'Me' in 'Mumeeeeeee'

'I have always thought that there is no more fruitful source of family discontent than a housewife’s badly-cooked dinners and untidy ways'. (Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management, 1861)

My, oh my, oh my! I disappear from my virtual life for 48hrs and return to find that two awards have been most generously bestowed upon my humble little blog page. This is very absolutely especially lovely and I am most grateful indeed.

So firstly, many thanks to the wonderful Rebel Mother at Another Day In the Madhouse for the enthusiastically-titled 'Bloody Brilliant Blog' award. This lady's witty posts and fabulous photos always make me smile - check her out if you're not already doing so. There don't seem to any 'rules' as such associated with this award, so I would just like to pass this on to the following, who I have discovered recently and consider to be Bloody Brilliant.

Lady Mama
Woman At Work
Notes From Inside My Head

And secondly, a big 'Ey Up Chuck' to the sleep-deprived Insomniac Mummy - yorkshire lass turned blogging genius - who has passed on the ludicrously titled 'Zombie Chicken' award. This mama writes some excellent stuff so be sure to call in to her.

The award is explained as follows: “The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken – excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all.”

Yikes - I fear the poultry invaders so will hastily pass the honour onto the following utterly genius bloggers. Ignore them at your peril - the chickens are a-getting hungry.

The Potty Diaries
A Modern Mother
Some Mothers Do Ave Em
Four Down Mum To Go

Finally and while on the subject of awards, I would also like to thank Perfectly Happy Mum, Really Rachel and Jen's Rantings for their very kind 'Meme' awards.

Right, must dash. I have some chickens to roast.


  1. Ah. Well, this is embarrassing. Not because I don't want the award, I totally do, thankyou very much, but because today I put you up as British Blogging Mum of the Week. That's all a bit 'jobs for the boys'(or in this case, mums), eh? Sorry, completely a coincidence...

  2. Congrats on the awards! I do hope that the chickens you're roasting are of the 'normal' variety. Yikes!

  3. Well done on your award and thanks for passing it on to me, I will display it with pride!

  4. Keeping in the awards vibe - there is another one for you over at mine...

  5. Potty - ooops. A case of blogging serendipity indeed and thank you very much for putting me up this week! Delighted :-)
    Laura - of course, oh and a few zombie ones!
    Woman At Work - enjoy!
    A Modern Mother - you are very welcome
    Brit in Bosnia - great balls of fire, another!You're very kind - thank you. Popping over to yours to check it out now!

  6. Thank you very much for my award! I'm very flattered! And well done on British Mummy Blogger of the Week! I'm sure bribery was nothing to do with it, you deserve it.

  7. I stumbled on your blog through Not From Around Here and I see you were awarded my "Your Blog is Bloody Brilliant" award. Well done you! I'm still surprised and pleased when I see it making the rounds. And now, I have a new blog to check out.

    All the best,
