It is obviously the time for carnivals. We have a one going on down the end of the road. Enormous inflatable slides that are wildly exciting if you are 2 or 3 and wildly scary if you are a Mummy. Fairground car rides which go round and round and round. Trampolines. Nothing could be more fun for the boys or empty our pockets quicker. The only issue is how I am going to be able to avoid having to go every day for the next week as we literally have to walk through it to get home from nursery.
On the blogging side of things, the latest British Mummy's Carnival is ready to go at More than Just a Mother. So grab a cup of tea, chocolate hobnob (except please don't tell me about that as I'll drown my own puddle of drool) and have a read from the frontlines of motherhood.
For the expat Mums amongst us there is another carnival on April 21st highlighting the expat Mummy community at the Expat Mums Blog. Anyone interested email entries to expatmums (at) gmail (dot) com. I'm looking forward to reading a few tales from far flung places about how people are managing to bring up their families in a foreign environment.
