The Inspirational British Mummy Bloggers Carnival

When I told my family I was going to an event called Cybermummy they rolled their eyes. I’m sure they’re not the only people to be bemused by the whole concept of ‘mummy blogging’. But let me tell you that on Saturday I met the most amazing, talented, funny and gorgeous women. They’re all very different, and yet the thing that binds them together is their collective love of writing.

So here, for your viewing pleasure, is my round-up – aka a Carnival – of the best of the British Mummy Bloggers’ posts from the past fortnight. Grab a coffee (or if the sun’s set on the lawn, a Mojito,) kick back and enjoy. And if it inspires you to start blogging, you can find lots of tips here. Enjoy!

Susanna has some artistic photos *cough*, Rosie talks about an embarrassing misunderstanding and Laura, one of the funniest women I know, describes an eye-watering experience. Jo has some explaining to do to her kids, and Pants with Names feels her cheeks go red. Meanwhile Emily has some confessions I’m sure many of us can identify with, Angels and Urchins thinks couples need date nights,  Jo wonders if her standards may be a little too high and Mommy Has a Headache reveals what happens when they’re not high enough

Motivating Mum reminds us the way we look after our kids is the way we should look after ourselves  Nickie celebrates toast  Elsie has a message for a certain midwife  and Pippa and her family taste the first strawberries of the season .

Spud is feeling nostalgic , Potty Mummy is teaching her children the value of money , and Paula wonders what kind of parent you are . Muddling Along Mummy has some great advice for mums of high needs babies  and tiddlyompompom (love that name) shares her guide to newborns.

Sometimes, as many of us heard on Saturday, blogs can be used to disclose feelings we find to hard to talk about. Mrs L J Hall writes movingly about bereavement, Carol shares a poignant poem , and Emma reveals why you can never let bullies win.

Meanwhile TaraVictoriaSandy and Heather remind us how fleeting childhood really is. Baking Mad Mama shares her experience of breastfeeding , Notes from Home spends an evening in A&E,  Karin has a reality check and Alison discovers fancy dress isn’t always easy. Hazel has some tips on how to be the perfect mum , while Emily wonders what what would happen if Jo Frost spent the day at her house.

I’m full of admiration for mums who have the time to make… well, anything really. Jen has some really lovely ideas for gifts for the teacher , Cathy is making peg dolls  and Maria shows us how to use old boxes to make a map of Europe . Totally brilliant.

Finally I love hearing about holiday experiences and days out and Mirka has made me seriously jealous with tales of her family holiday in Crete . Karen describes her perfect picnic in Edinburgh last summer, while Snaffles Mummy talks about her son’s first camping experience . Magical.
