Our Ten at Ten this week is provided by the most prolific blogger we know, and one who’s also famed for the quality of her children’s lunchboxes.
We challenged Pippa to find us some great new reads, and here’s what she says:
Hello! I’m Pippa aka PippaD or Weird Question Asker or Dr Pepper Drinker and a host of other names that are far too rude to share. I’m in charge of your Ten at Ten reading today, so grab a drink, have a slice of complementary cake and lock yourself away so you don’t get disturbed whilst reading!
Mum of All Trades caught my eye this past Saturday with a no sew play tent tutorial. The play tent that she made is beautiful and I’ve had Top Ender asking me to make one for her before the sunshine goes and all we are left with is rain. At that point the sky opened and Tops shot me a glare that implies she thinks I made it rain. Honestly I’m not that powerful.
Emma at Me, The Man & The Baby wrote a very open post about having a Mental Health Midwife and how her hormones caused her to act in a way that she, her friends and family didn’t recognise as her. It’s something that isn’t talked about a lot, but is something that should be talked about so that everyone who does experience it knows that they aren’t the only one.
Were you ever in the “in Crowd”? Over at alysonsblog she is talking about how she has never been in the in crowd, but is realising that maybe that isn’t where she wants to be anyway. It’s a great read and Alyson doesn’t need to be part of any crowd as she is making her own path!
A little bit of fun now as Spike at The Wonderful Adventures of Spud and Spike has been throwing some moves! It might be that Spike is uber cute or it might be that his dancing is adorable (I say a combo of the two), but I’ve been watching his little videos on loop and if you’re feeling a little down then watching them will cheer you up!
For those of us in England we have a few more weeks left of the School holidays, but in Scotland a lot of School’s have already gone back and SoftThistle has had an epiphany over her boys returning to School and Nursery. I know just what she is talking about and I’m refusing to look at the calendar so that I can’t see the countdown for when my two go to School!
Did you watch the closing ceremony of The Olympics? Melissa At Talk About York has and she wasn’t too impressed with the models as she felt it took away from the message of what role models should look like. I have to say I rather agree with her!
There is a touch of sadness at The Iota Quota as Iota’s inlaws are moving home and whilst Iota has never lived in the home they are moving from there are a lot of memories tied up to the house. Good luck to her inlaws for their move and may their new home be the home of many new memories for all the family.
Mamasaurus often has me in fits of giggles, but her Hairy Caterpillar post will only take a moment to read, but will leave you with a new appreciation of Annie’s drawing talent.
Do you ever play the “If I ever…” game? It’s where you say something like If I ever had a million pounds I would… and then you fill in the blanks. Well At the Bottom of the Ironing Basket has been playing If I had a Swimming Pool and I’m starting to think I need to move house!
And being cheeky I’m giving you a post that is one of mine from A Mother’s Ramblings! It’s about how we knew that Big Boy was a Diabetic. It was just over a month ago that he was diagnosed after a very long day at the hospital and I hope that by sharing some of the signs other children can be treated as quickly as he was.
So there you go Ten at Ten. Hope you have enjoyed them and thanks for having me!
