This page is somewhere for me to share blog posts, articles, little bits and pieces that I’ve particularly enjoyed and would like you my lovely readers to get involved with and enjoy too. You can find a list slung together on this page to peruse at your leisure or I’ve had a go at trying to categorise them- you can hover over the page link to see the categories.
We all love to share the blog love so if you’ve read something & really enjoyed it or written something you’re proud of, tweet me (@wordswithwine) or leave a comment with a link and I’ll be happy to mention it here.
Thank you to all the lovely bloggers who gave permission for me to feature them!
It would be poor taste for me to say too much about this post, other than to thank Corrine for allowing me to share it with you. So thank you Corrine. The courage & love for your family you have shown these last few weeks has been truly humbling. Love to you.
Reading this while your kids run riot at your feet? Feeling guilty for tweeting the situation before/during finding a solution? Fear not, this post by the vicars wife will stop your worrying. Make a brew even so you can relax while you read.
If you keep an eye on this page of my blog, Mammywoos is a name which you’ll see a bit of. She is my bloggedy hero and I heart her (read further gushing here) . Somehow terrifyingly honest & hilarious all at once, this post serves as a true reminder that Depression is an illness. Not a choice.
Gorgeous little post about the war against teething. if you’ve been there, I guarantee you’ll find yourself right back in it, lay awake in the dark, wishing you could do something.
I have little that I even Can say about this blog. It’s so funny, I cried reading it. God help us all as parents. MoVo talks about the stuff we don’t know where to start with.
If you’re a bit of a twitter addict, you’ll understand this post. I wish so much, that I had written this. Describing to a non-tweeting friend ‘what twitter is like’ absolutely hits the nail on the head in a way that is funny & clever and oh so very true.
So. I wrote a post about benefits and then Cas came along On The Same Day and shit all over it. A post about the stigma attached to living on benefits, dealing with the judgement and trying to be more than just a statistic.
Written to her daughter ‘Moo’, MoVo somehow manages to be both funny and heartbreaking in this beautifully poignant post about the breakdown of her marriage. Of all the wonderful posts by MoVo while she still did blog, this one has really stayed with me.
If you follow my twitter or look at my blog much you’ll see Mummyglitzer haunting my mentions and comment boxes. She is one of my twitter besties yes, but don’t let that take away from the fact she is a truly marvellrous blogger. This girl writes about the bags of shit life flings and you and smashes back at them with a baseball bat. Funny and heart-warming, this post talks about those fears of “Am I doing this right?” we all face as parents.
I write honestly but when it comes to really baring your soul & letting the world see the man you truly are, well. Nothing I’ve ever written can compare with this post of confession.
Zoe over at Tricky Customer is the kind of mother that makes you want to become a better one. Writing openly & honestly about the lives of herself, her husband & their little boy; Sam (Go Team Sam!) Zoe writes cheerfully & bravely about Sam’s condition- ARX or Aristaless Related Homeobox but in this post she offers an insight into the struggles it can pose. A beautiful post, in a beautiful blog, by a beautiful woman about a beautiful little boy.
