Best of the Parent Blogs: Ten at Ten (43)


Top Ten British Mummy and Daddy Bloggers

It’s Friday and I don’t know about you guys, but I am so glad to catch sight of the weekend. Not least because it will give me a chance to catch up on some of my blog reading!

This week, we’ve handed over the reins of the Ten at Ten to the marvellous Laura (I have to say that – she’s much taller than me) from LittleStuff. We asked Laura to share her ten favourite posts from UK parent blogs from the last week. So, without further ado, grab yourself a seat and settle down for some fab blog inspiration:

I had a good old mosey through the Tots100 this week, and as always, found some brilliant blogs and inspiring reads. After my seasonal Christmas break followed by the madness that is work in January, it was lovely to reacquaint myself with some old friends plus meet a bunch of new ones.

But for this Ten at Ten, I’ve picked ten posts from this week that really made me FEEL something – January is such a glum kind of month, we all need a prod to get through it – so here are ten prods for you:

The inspiring Alexander Residence wrote about grief, one year on from the death of her mother. A Quiet, strong and inspiring post, beautifully written… And accompanied by a great tune too – gorgeous post one.

Over at 1 more means 4 (and one more), Amy made me actually dribble tea down my chin whilst snorting with laughter as she talks about fingers and Slugs. Sort of.

And keeping with the whole sweary theme, the Reluctant Housedad had a funny tale too – plus some cracking advice tucked away in there at the same time.

My fourth pick this week is the Reluctant Memsahib  – just because she’s back. *Phew*

Indie Tutes  ‘Confession’ struck a chord with me as I struggle with adjusting to post-holiday life without the house full of The Four again, and I make the annual mental flirt with homeschooling.

Peonies and Polaroids has just made me Laugh. Out. Loud. That is all; and that is Enough.

Sandy Calico brought an immediate sense of calm to me – I love Yoga, don’t do it anywhere near often enough, and thanks to Sandy I fully intend to correct that ASAP. Beautifully written, persuasive and beguiling. Namaste.

Domestic Goddesque’s Project 366 post was the stand out photography post of the week for me – the image of the girls on the bed just beamed instant sunshine and joy, and who could resist it when it provided Muff Cakes too…

Next up this week, Iota Quota made me snuffle up a bit. I admit it. I’m thinking her Fairy Godmother needs a serious ball of her own for being so very special. Aaawwww.

Belgian Waffling – she disappears, she comes back… and hey presto we WANT French Masterchef, dammit. How many people can write about a TV programme and make you ne-e-e-d to watch it, huh? Even if you won’t understand a WORD…

That’s your lot for this week – do pop over and check out what these amazing bloggers have got to say – you won’t regret it!
