Some blogs I know

  • Freckles and Doubt
    Considering her mastery of narrative structure etc. (insert narrative structure here.....)
  • Trailer Park Refugee | just three shots of tequila away from a bar fight….
    Just three shots of tequila away from a bar fight...
  • Exile on Pain Street | Straddling the Hudson River. One foot in NYC, the other in suburban New Jersey.
    One man's story, etc.....
  • Fat Man on a Keyboard
    'At first they came for the smokers but I did not speak out as I did not smoke. Then they came for the binge drinkers but I said nothing as I did not binge. Now they have an obesity strategy...'
  • New York Bike Blog
  • Belgian Waffle
    Prolific? Bien sur. Waffle? Not a bit of it. The best thing to come out of Belgium since Leffe Blonde, and that is saying something.
  • Non-working monkey
    'Why taking work seriously turns you into a cock', among other lifesavingly important career advice.
  • Razorblade of life
    'Not so much cutting-edge as half-cut and still sliding'...
  • blue cat
    This blue cat fellow (he writes for the telly you know) issues forth an apparently effortless stream of grade-A funniness that has me overcome in turns by helpless laughter and shameful, powerful envy. There I've said it.
  • Joella
    Joella in Oxfordshire. Working for The Man while training to be a plumber (I think!). Loves gherkins, hates aubergines... and Fascists.
  • Bushra
    Bushra's blog/ homepage/ call it what you want
  • Dubsteps (formerly Hobo Tread)
    Thoughts of Skif, a Havant and Waterlooville fan exiled in Liverpool- possibly the most engaging non-league football writing to be found on the web- and with a little bit of politics, and plenty more beside!
  • Tired Dad
    The Man Who Very Nearly Fell Asleep
  • troubled diva.
    Mike, the self-styled 'Fairy Godmother of British Blogging'. He got us all published in a book, you know...
  • Private Secret Diary
    Dispatches from deepest Norfolk. Not that private and not that secret. Just consistently hilarious.
  • The man who fell asleep; Sadness and ecstasy in unequal measures
    The book inspired by this veteran site (A Year in the life of The Man Who Fell Asleep) features the 'sarcastic polar bears of north London' among other oddities that the author manages somehow to render absolutely plausible.
  • Pete Ashton's Internet Presence
    Birmingham's finest. Writing with enviable clarity on every subject under the sun since 2000 (a very long time indeed!). Now with added nice pictures of canals and stuff...
  • Looby
    'An awkward, clumsy fellow; a lubber; a novice'....a venerated (if refreshingly irreverent) blogging institution. Lancaster's very finest!
  • RichardHerring.com
    The comedian Richard Herring's kind of online diary thing. Always worth a visit.

Hey, lovely post and a timely reminder of the special small details of these years which move ever onward. Thanks :-)

Frankie sounds like a lovely and intelligent young man. So I think he knows EXACTLY what he is saying when referring to Stoke Au Contraire.

looby

Yes. that's lovely and evocative. Mine also (at the age of 12) go through an elaborate night-time bye-byes incantation, which I think is a way of holding on to a childhood they know is receding.

Must see the doctor about this stutter.

Yes and it's so important to record these memories like you're doing in Crinklybee. Keep it up for posterity and for Frankie to read in the future. That way, you know that he'll recall the little precious things.

Thank you for all these lovely comments...as if to prove the point about the breakneck pace at which these infant years are receding, the boy wandered up to the computer just before bed-time then asked 'Daddy have you wrote on your busybees website Frankie was seven years old last week'? I'm going to have to keep an eye on this sudden literacy...maybe he needs to graduate from watching CBeebies on I-Player to having his own blog... cattowellies.typepad.com, anyone?

Tired Dad

That's made me a little bit sad. Lovely though.

abby

Eeeeee yes, especially that bit about the gingerbread man -- very lovely wor Jonathan!
