A couple of days ago I had just two posts for this carnival, but a couple of tweets and you came up trumps. I’ve loved reading every post submitted, and I’m sure you will too. Sit down, grab a cuppa and read a fabulous collection of the best of British Mummy Blogging.
The Theme: Working Mum, Stay at Home Mum!
Last year I hosted the carnival and felt that I wanted another go, sure that I could do it much better this time. One of the ideas was to have a theme for the carnival … but Easter and sick babies got in the way and I didn’t do anything about it until Friday. I tweeted about the carnival and some people asked, ‘Is there a theme?’ So, there is … kind of. But bearing in mind the theme was only announced a few days ago there are also some great posts on a range of topics that are so good I couldn’t leave them out.
