Tuesday Treats is a roundup of top blog posts and articles which is curated on a rotating basis by me, Chris at Thinly Spread, Lizzie at Me and My Shadow, and Becky at A Beautiful Space. For a while we did it as a weekly post and then we moved to monthly, but at the moment, because we’re all such busy ladies, it’s an as-and-when kind of thing!
“So there. I admit it. My name is David, and I am addicted to salt.” — Cocoa and Lavender
“It is 2014. iPhones were introduced 7 years ago. Now, half of Americans own smartphones. We should probably embrace what is here and use it to our advantage, rather than fighting with reality.” — Hipmombrarian’s Blog
“I liked to do her hair. Even as a three year old she would let me play with it. I’d try to put the rollers in. Later, she’d sit patiently while I blow-dried it. Once, I made her look like a silver-haired Meat Loaf.” —Mother’s Always Right
“This wasn’t any ordinary flat, this was a crucible made of magical stuff; where gold was fashioned from waste basket junk, where sapphires poured from the bathroom tap, where dreams bubbled in fairy wisps of kettle steam…” — Older Mum in a Muddle
“I love everything there is to love about Scotland: its music, football, Hogmanay, Skye, salmon leaps, pokey wee pubs, mid-winter queues at ice-cream booths next to duck ponds, Ivor Cutler and random bus-stop banter.” — Bella Caledonia
“I lie sometimes. For fun. I taught my children that sheep that have been recently shorn are called Shauns. And that the Swedish for light bulb is ‘Lighty bulben’ (which it may well be for all I know.)” — Ramblings of a Formerly Rock n Roll Mum
“When the Vicar marvelled over a recipe for ‘Penis Stew’ in a Two Fat Ladies’ cookbook, my mother roamed the Home Counties in search of an abattoir that would supply a bull’s glory to expand his culinary repertoire.” — Adventures of a Middle-Aged Matron
