Here we go people – it’s Friday, it’s ten o’clock… it’s time for the Ten at Ten! *Loud cheering*
This week the best of the week’s posts have been selected by our guest editor, the one and only Lexy, from MammyWoo. Who does so much soul baring on her blog that she was hard-pressed to find something new to tell us for her ‘fact’. But here it is. Ready?
Lexy had a third nipple removed 11 years ago. Because it was small and weird.
There – bet you’re glad we shared
So – go find the biscuits and settle down to see what Lexy chose from the Tots100 interwebs this week.
Oh my giddy pants! (And no I haven’t been reading 50 shades of anything! Well not much anyway. Ahem.)
This week I have absolutely adored reading something other than mum porn (although I resent this term!), and in doing so, discovering so many beautiful memories, some fab advice and some absolutely stunning photographs.
Each time I find a new blog I become amazed at the talent the blogosphere has to offer, for turning something sometimes quite ordinary in to the most extraordinary. These pieces of writing I have chosen for this weeks 10 at 10 have both helped me, touched me (stop being rude) and on more than one occasion, stopped me in my tracks.
The first little gem I discovered while trying to ignore everybody else chatting about bondage, was an incredibly addictive, funny, heart wrenching and most definitely out of the ordinary blog written by a lady called Ella, who is a single paramedic working mum! Have you ever wondered what goes on in the back of an ambulance? If you haven’t visited before then I urge you to. I particularly enjoyed this post, about the circle of life
The second is from one of the most precious, hilariously funny, a little bit mad (In a good way) and simply gorgeous and addictive Eliza do lots. This weeks she really does turn something I would have thought ‘hmm no I wouldn’t do that myself’ in to something I am genuinely considering! She is the only woman I would ever lick the face of, should she ask me too. That’s how much I love her blog.
Being a bit of a mental (it’s true, I can’t deny it) myself and adoring all things therapy, I very much enjoyed this post what advice would you give to your 13yr old self by Whimsical Wife. I have loved this lady’s writing for a long while and this post is no different. It is touching, understanding and just precious. I really wish I could do the same, and hey, I just might.
Addison is two now, but as the Irish one wants us to consider having another baby some time soon (to be honest I’m seriously thinking about an Audi instead) this week I have absolutely loved these two posts, one from the gorgeous, caring and honest Mother geek, about the importance of vaccinations but the side effects it can have on us mums, and the other from the incredibly funny, talented and down right witty Babberblog, who reminds me what it is like in those early days when you are trying to get your life back! I also found this from the gorgeous and superhero esque Suzanne about learning the art of discipline and I have to be honest, I will be visiting this blog on a regular basis, due to the fact that my son, has taken to throwing Jelly ‘high in the sky’. I need help!
Sarah, who’s writing always has me gripping the edge of my seat writes this week about the return of an uninvited guest. Read how her heart stopped as a man appeared outside her door in the middle of the night, and left a rather bizarre and scary Gift. This woman is inspiring, and I just want to hug her. All. Of. The. Time. (But not in a freaky way.)
Do you like cake? Does a bear poo in the woods? May I suggest in that case you immediately skip on over here, to a woman who in the past has described herself as ‘just a mum with a camera’ and well, basically, she is talking poop. She is so so so so so much more. Supportive, charming and one talented photographer and writer, the boy and me this week teaches us about cake. I LOVE CAKE! I want all those cakes. NOW. Oh my god is there anything this lady canny do?
Ever thought of giving blood? I have thought about it on a number of occasions but genuinely? I do find it all a little scary to be honest. I’m really not a fan of anything large and sharp moving towards me at high speed, so when I read this, from the inspiring Dawn over at the moiderer, it made me a little bloody cross too, as it would have taken me a lot to get down there. What do you think?
And my last one, I have to admit, is one I visit all the time. It provides me on almost a daily basis, with a quick giggle and a virtual hug. Just one woman and her sketchbook I don’t think! Funny, talented and unique. Take a look at this – ever been forced to squeeze in to a swimming costume too small?
That’s all from me folks.
What has 18 wheels and a cold?
A choo choo train!!!
(Laugh!!! And then leave me alone. It’s been a long Thomas related year.)
