Here Is The News #33

Here is the News

Blogland Brilliance (far too many fabulous posts this week, you lot all need to stop writing such good stuff!)

Is Sarah having a boy or a girl? Only time will tell but in the meantime, it seems like there's lots of different methods for having a jolly good go!

Jane's hosting an excellent giveaway with a chance to win tickets to the Knitting and Stitching show in London next month.

One quick way to make yourself feel better is to read The High Tea Cast's list of things which prove you're winning at life, a list guaranteed to make you feel good about yourself.

I love the sound of Elise's Aqua Spinning class (and at the magnificent Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh!), I hope they start doing them somewhere down south so I can give that a go in the future.

Toni's opened her very own shop on Etsy with lots of incredibly cute designs in stock.

How gorgeous does Angela look with her new hairstyle? Bea-uti-ful!

Danielle's photos from her day in the life post are brilliant (Danielle, you'll have to join in with photo an hour one month!)

More stunning photos can be found over on Kerri's post all about the local botanical gardens in Autumn - the colours are gorgeous!

Emma had a lovely sunny day out on the beach at Bridlington (and how big is that piece of fish?)

I love this cloud cushion Janet made for her #DIcraft swap. It's a shame it has to be sent away but I have no doubt her swap partner will absolutely love it.

Emma-Hope's written an excellent post all about organ donation, something which I signed up for last year.

Kezzie went to a swing dance weekend (and looks pretty darn cool in her flapper dress!) but also managed to find time to write an incredibly useful post about things to think about when you feel disheartened about blogging.

Chloe's post written by her other half, Simon is brilliant. He's perfectly captured what it's like living with a blogger, I showed it to Andrew and he found himself nodding along with pretty much every word.

Michelle had a little birthday last week (happy birthday lady!) and shared 31 little life lessons. She also had a little makeover (well, the blog did anyway, a gorgeous gal like Michelle doesn't need one) and spruced things up a bit.

And Sophie's been a bit awol recently but when you realise why, you can't help but laugh! She also managed to bag herself a promotion during her break - well done lady!


Food Porn

Hannah's Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake Brownies look delicious (anything with cheesecake and chocolate is a winner really).

Elizabeth's Gran's Super Simple Treacle Sponge looks tasty and dead easy to make.

And Josie is celebrating National Chip Week, which sounds like one celebratory week I could definitely get behind.

Exciting Events

It's February's photo an hour challenge this Saturday. I'll be posting on Instagram all day long and I know Jane will be too. Last month there were 15 lovely ladies snapping away on the Saturday or the Sunday and it'd be fab to get to over 20 people joining in by the end of the year. If you've never done one before, just take a pic every hour and it really doesn't matter how dull you think you day is, it certainly won't be boring to us bunch of nosy parkers. See you on Saturday? ;-)


Interesting Info

Fair play to South West Trains last weekend - they gave their passengers a romantic send-off!

Game theory is something our students get taught where I work but I wouldn't have been able to tell you much about it so this article from the BBC was quite interesting to read. A little bit of probability, a little bit of strategy and a little bit of haggling methinks.

And great minds think alike with this one - Danielle also spotted this excellent story about the first model with Down's Syndrome to grace the stage at New York Fashion Week.

Blogs I've followed this week...
