Friday Fabulous Five #61

The Friday Fabulous Five is my regular feature where I share five of my favourite blog posts that I have read in the previous week – posts that have made me laugh, made me cry or made me think.  Here are this week’s fabulous blog posts:


  • Cuddle Fairy shared a very good guide on Twitter etiquette – do you follow these unspoken rules?
  • My eldest daughter is due to start school this year and I have to confess that the more I read about current government policies and proposals regarding education, the more appealing the idea of home schooling is becoming.  I find it quite shocking that children aged 6 or 7 are tested so rigorously thanks to having to undergo SATs and this post from Writing Bubble on her thoughts regarding it and questioning whether parents should be taking a stand is thought-provoking and powerfully written.
  • I have to admit that I do wonder at times whether our current Government is trying to take us back to the Dark Ages – this brilliantly-written post from R is for Hoppit asking if George Osborne is really the Sheriff of Nottingham wonders the same.
  • I rarely watch TV and have not seen the BBC programme “The A Word”, but I found Diary of an Imperfect Mum’s post reflecting on her son’s diagnosis and her thoughts relating to the label that comes with a diagnosis of autism very moving and thought-provoking.
  • I loved Mummy in a Tutu’s personal ad post seeking a husband after the success of a similar type of post led to her finding her tribe.  Brilliantly written and very funny – hope it will be met with similar success!


I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did and have a good weekend!  You can also find some of the posts from past weeks on my Friday Fab 5 board over on Pinterest.

    1. My pleasure Catie – I think the fact that it is so personal is what makes it such a powerful post – you are really writing from the heart and that comes across. It was such a beautifully written post and really did provide such an insight into your journey around the time of diagnosis and how difficult that must have been for you as a family, whilst still embracing the positives and the wonderful person that your son is x

  1. Thank you so much for including me Louise! I was nervous about posting that, I’m glad it has your seal of approval. Have a great weekend x
