Last week there was the Ultimate Party Blog run by Janice and Susan at 5 minutes for Mum ubpbanner3-welcome.jpg

We were required to introduce some bloggers to others this week so I decided I would do this via this meme

I ended up visiting 1/2 the participants and so even whittling them down to 13 was hard!!

1 Lisa at And Babies make 6 who after using IVF ended up with triplets she has a lovely family such sweet children

2 What drew me to Dari was the way she did her blogs for the Party. Its the way I would have done them had I had time. Check out her site at Charmed and Dangerous

3 If you know anything about me you’ll know Im a sucker for a cute wee face and at Morgan’s site theres 2 of them. Again another mom with handsome boys.

4 I have nice Candian bloggie friends and heres another one I hope. Melissa also has adorable twins
5 Toni has posted some really good posts over the last week so shes in my Top 13 too.

6 Val‘s daughter is the same age as Daniel. Shes a professional photographer so I hope to see some of her work at some stage. She also love stage plays as I do

7 With her beautiful smile and her looks she reminds me of a cousin of mine. She also has a pretty little daughter. Check out Crazy Bloggin Canuck

8 What made me notice Crystal’s blog is her Party post and what a lovely family she has. Crystal has 2 blogs. Onone of her blogs she talks about her homeschooling experiences and in the other one (in which she introduced us to a wonderful Christain singer the other day) she talks about other things

The last of lot of my 13 are all New Zealanders.

9 Jess lives in my own home town of Auckland. She has 4 children

10 This lady use to be a school teacher and is now a sahm of 4. She also likes similar music to me. Introducing Karen aka Oacemama

11 Rach is also another mama with 2 blogs. Shes a down to earth lady check out her blogs at Intricate Simplicity and Down the Garden Path. I feel like Im learning a lot from her already.

12 My sister has a large family so I like learning about the dynamics of large families. The thing that has stuck me this week is how inventive and helpful this family is. Go see the wheelchair or the cupcake made by a 12 year old at Inventions and Adventures

13 Lastly I introduce you to Kate. They live in the sunny Bay of Plenty. Shes crafty remaking necklaces and such out of other stuff she finds.


Tuesday Tackle – Blog Party Visiting and my Desk

Last week I said I knew what my tackle would be this week but Ive changed my mind and decided it can wait.


Because its not every week we have a party is it ubpbanner.jpg

So my tackle and goal for this week is to visit as many as of the parties as I can. If you have visited me thanks if I havent got to you yet Im getting there. For those that might be worried about me doing this – relax – Im still doing the washing, cooking the meals, looking after my boys, and I still went to playgroup this morning.

My other smaller tackle this week was cleaning up my desk. Im quite pleased with the end result I feel lots less crammed now 🙂
