Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party 2008 hosted by 5 minutes for Mom. Thanks for coming.

So what is the Ultimate Blog Party?

Basically it is a carnival for you to meet other mom/mum bloggers, have fun, win prizes and get your blog noticed. Last year over 1000 bloggers took part. I have been invited by Rose from Parenting Issues (t'was her that gave me that lovely shiny award you can see over there --->)

About Me

I am a married 35 year old (for a month yet anyway) Mother of 2 girls, aged 10 and 4 (nearly 5 though).
I am a full time Mum and help out at Pickle's school sometimes and enjoy cooking, gardening, photography, pets, shopping, reading, music, blogging, facebook, internet in general reallly!
I have an unnatural interest in Russell Brand but that is ok as Picklesdad has an unnatural interest in Katherine Jenkins, so we get on just fine!

About My Blog

It is a pure and simple ramble about things that happen to our family. I try to keep it light and inoffensive.

My Party

My party is a VIP party and you are all invited, my lovely readers.

I have dressed my Meez up especially for the occaision but in reality, that's never going to happen! There's no crocs for a start and my hair would NEVER do that in a million years, but what the hey?

The Food

I have baked some goodies for the party....

Some yummy ginger biscuits


some not quite so yummy savoury slices for Picklesdad (many MANY food intolerances!)

To visit all the Ultimate Blog Parties visit 5 Minutes For Mom and check out all the blogs that have added their details on Mr Linky. There are also competitions and prizes. Prizes include DVDs, books, chocolates and much more. Visit the Ultimate Blog Party 2008 Prize Page for further details. And there is still time for you to take part - the party runs until March 14th, visit the Ultimate Blog Party Instruction Page.

Have a great party!

Many many apologies to Rose as I have blatantly copied vast parts of your blog as I found it most confusing! Thanks for the help!

Great blog! Love it. Happy Party . . . hop over time mine! Blessings.

Rosie said...

Hooray! You're partying too! Thanks for the mention and great to see you displaying your award! I wasn't sure how it would look. I've had tons of visitors since putting my name on Mr Linky, it's a really good idea. As you know I spent hours on which I blame you for completely! It is really good fun.

PS I found the whole party thing confusing too son don't worry!

PPS RE: Picklessister, hope she's ok. IJ is moving to a new school but it's completely unrelated to the 'incident' I blogged about. More about that later. Back to the partying!
