Hmmm. I am doing that thing where I share stuff I have found online, as if I think I am well good at the internet or something. I’m sorry. It’s just because sometimes you do come across something that you want to shout about and also I love it when other bloggers share goodies they have chanced upon.
So here is Talking It Up Numero Uno:
- I have joined three new groups on Facebook that burst into my timeline with such simple wisdom, they remind me to be the parent I want to be. Attachment Parenting UK, Positive Parenting and Conscious Parenting. An example…

- I have fallen head over heals for Pretty Nostalgic’s Pinterest page. If you love upcycling, crafty DIY, vintage fabric, imaginative uses for boring things than you will fall in love too. (Oh, sheesh, another way to wile away life online!) Don’t bother following me as it will only be repinning them!
- Last weekend the Guardian ran an article, most deceptively called The Wonders of Breasts. Because the first half truly was about their magic, it seemed fairly balanced. Then it opened a can of scaremongerdom on our asses. Thankfully, Analytical Armadillo spent the time responding with this EXCELLENT and very sensible article.
- Feminist motherhood can be kind of angry. (There is a lot to get mad about, no?) It is always ace when someone can talk about the issues intelligently, succinctly, AND inject a bit of humour, see Exhibit 1 Sad White Babies with Feminist Mummies
- Finally, the proper brill Lakota over at Faith Hope and Charity Shopping has hosted an international gift swap between bloggers. She has paired up over 70 people and we were to swap parcels of secondhand and handmade treasures. Like somekind of blogger-whisperer Lakota fixed me up with another one who loves all things old and is also involved in craftivism, Rachel of Firebird Retro. I met her beautiful self at the Craftivist event at the farm on Sundayand today a delightful package arrived on my mat.
A green retro tea towel, a hand made pin cushion, two gorgeous old books about Britain and a hand stitched craftivist banner that I get the pleasure of pinning up somewhere public. (And I know EXACTLY where- watch this space!) I love the quote. Global Citizens 4 EVA.
Man. I LOVE the internet.
