I've been tagged by From Dawn till Rusk
to do a rambling apprciation of five Blogs I like. This in itself is tricky because there are so many good ones out there. I have to limit my blogging time otherwise Birthday Parties would be a disaster because I had blogged instead of sending out party bags, ooh, imagine the hostlities!!

So, in no particular order I like this one, by Girl with a Mask which I think most of you have seen.
It just makes me cry laughing. It's the kind of thing I can imagine being muttered under the breath of my husband around his mothers table, just loud enough for us all to hear but inaudible to his mother.
I love Girl with a Mask, very often I don't comment, she leaves me speechless, but she's brilliant.

Next (in no particular order is Millenium Housewife she writes the most brilliant lists.
This one is my favourite, unless you have a young child you just can't appreciate it, so if anyone wants to borrow my youngest daughter, do give me a shout..no, I'm not serious, we'll sell her on Ebay to the highest bidder.

And another wild woman I like is Jo Beaufoix this post is just typical of the nonsense spoken in my home too...erm, I think I have a theme going here that a. we are childish and b. we are childish.

And this Post from my lovely Blog friend (whether she likes it or not) Potty Mummy because she's inspired me to go on a diet too...and boy are we hungry!

And I am a huge Pig fan, so here's the recent post from her a great example of the trials of motherhood and selflessness which we all exhibit from time to time inthe course of our duties as parents......

But, I have to add one extra because I cannot go without the person who inspired me to start blogging. The queen B Dulwich Mum. I can't find the Swarfega one, so I'll settle for this fantastic post by Bea.

So I tag Millennium Housewife, Dulwich Mum, Gone Back South, Valley Girl and Blog That Mama

Ooh, thanks for tagging Frog, will have to have a think about this one as am still fairly new to blogging and haven't had a chance to get to know all the fab blogs out there yet!

Thanks for putting me on to Millennium Housewife - loved her lists. Have added her to my reader now - how will I find the time to read all these blogs?

Tara@From Dawn Till Rusk said...

Utterly brilliant list. Have just sat here and read every one of them and thoroughly enjoyed it. Am shouting down the stairs now for a cup of tea so I can go on reading, but hubby's not getting the hint. Why do they not understand?

GoneBackSouth said...

Gosh thanks - I think - can I do it later please (story of my life)? I'll start pondering my list of rambling subjects as I do dishes (*** SIGH ***).

Jo Beaufoix said...

Oh thanks that is so cool. I have an enormous smile on my face right now, in fact, if you saw me, you would possibly be a bit scared. :D

Oh, and I think you're kind of fabulous too.

girl with the mask said...

You like me! You really like me!

I never knew so many people would end up reading about my papa's bollocks. Thanks, Frog! x

Millennium Housewife said...

hey froggy! thanks for the tag, I'm having the door frames widened to fit my head through... away at the moment so can't reply to your email but back blogging next week, see you then! MH

Lazy Daisy said...

Thanks for listing some great blogs for me to visit, I've been on the lookout.

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day and for your sweet comment.

A Confused Take That Fan said...

Ooh Frog, thanks for the tips, now I just have to find the time to read them all, and to do my list!

Mud in the City said...

Thanks for the link to Millennium Housewife, loved her writing and the lists are genius!

Frog in the Field said...

You're very welcome Vally Girl...get on with it!

Working Mum, you'll just have to stop sleeping I'm afraid!

Thank you Dawn Till Rusk, glad you share my (obviously) good taste.


Gone Back South, you must get a dishwasher or ask Dulwich Mum to lend you Magda.

Yes Jo, you are seriously scaring me.

Now Girl with a Mask, don't go all mushy on me.

So sorry to hear of your medical problem MH, I do hope the swelling goes down.

Hi Lazy Daisy, it is hard to find Blogs when you start out, glad you like them.

Hello Confused Take That Fan, are you going to offer those cakes around or what?

Hi Mud in the City, poor MH will never be able to get in and out her house again thanks to you!
She is a genius.

Darling Frog,

I am so very touched by what you have said. I am here, locked in my boxroom with my computer, sun shining outside, poppets bouncing on the trampoline in the garden... you have made my day.

I am so proud to have chums like you.

i agree with your choices frog - plus i have discovered a new gem - millennium housewife- hilarious!

Tara@From Dawn Till Rusk said...

It's pouring with rain here today so I thought I'd spend a little time finding out who you are and reading your older posts. Just wanted to remind your hubby 'hello I'm Jasmine's Mother' - hilarious. You need to keep mentioning that every now and again. Also chuckled at the gift of lice and diamonds for your 40th birthday.
