Do you want to know a secret? Something that makes me boring and cements my early onset middle age?
I don’t like new years eve.
There, I said it. Its boring and usually depressing. If you venture out to celebrate it is expensive and the one night of the year when you are guaranteed to be surrounded by total losers. Usually very drunk total losers at that.
You stand, packed like sardines, in a sweaty bar and the overcrowding means your fabulous shoes never the the respect or adoration they deserve. Everyone is waiting for the countdown to midnight…3-2-1 right, let’s go home shall we?
New years eve is overrated. Instead let me shower you with the wonderfulness that is my top blogs of 2011. Blogs that have made me laugh or cry, and blogs that you should bookmark for 2012 if you haven’t already.
There are so many truly brilliant blogs out there, I want to write about them all but if I did this post would go on until 2013…so I won’t.
Mammasaurus. Don’t believe the rumours but believe the hype. Funny, inspiring and all round good egg. Not only does she have a fantastic blog, she has also set up a network for all the newer blogs out there in Love All Blogs. My reader hasn’t been empty since.
SAHDAndProud. My favourite ‘daddy blogger’. He deserves a huge steaming pile of recognition and love in a mummy dominated world. His posts are always great reads, and he manages to be funny and heartbreaking all at once. He may have magic powers.
Mother Venting. This woman is hilarious. She can make anything funny, and I’m pretty sure she will do anything for a good biscuit.
DearBeautifulBoy. I love this blog. I love that it documents the lovely LittleMan growing up in a unique way. I’m also extremely jealous of the bedroom of my dreams.
MammyWoo. Possibly the best postnatal desperation blog, evah.
BishyBarnabee. We were both in love with the same boy at school. We sat together in French. Now we both have babies and blogs. A new blog well worth bookmarking.
DeskMonkeyMummy. Funny, not afraid to swear which can be an admirable trait.
