Welcome to the first bloggers carnival post for 2011. I hope you are enjoying the Christmas/New Year break, today I have some great posts for you to read this holiday from some very talented bloggers. So go and get a coffee, come back here and settle down for a good read. I asked our Aussie Mummy bloggers for their favourite post of 2010 – so, in no particular order here they are – enjoy.
Christie from Home Grown offers up her favourite post from 2010 – Tip number 15 from The Thrifty Fifty series; Save In Your Kids Lunchboxes. This tip focused on ways to buy smarter and save $$ at the supermarket when it comes to filling your family’s lunch boxes.
_vTg_ from This Growing Life writes a humbling post about being grateful. A post she says “was the post which most touched me to write and which I wish I knew enough to write more on”.
Lara from Extremely Nappies talks about the birth of her third child; Childbirth – reality vs fantasy.
Kristin Brumm from Wanderlust writes about A Gift – Back in July, during the thick of my divorce chaos, a friend offered some profound and well-timed words of advice, which helped pull me back to my center. In response, I wrote this short poem of gratitude and was surprised when it was stumbled and re-stumbled, making it my most popular post of 2010. Follow Kristin on Twitter & Facebook.

And lastly one of my own favourite posts from the year has to be the birth of my lovely last baby Charlie, he arrived in January 2010 and I was dared to tweet his birth on twitter: Tweeting the arrival of my 7th baby. Today is his 1st birthday! Happy Birthday to my last baby 🙂
I have only been blogging since Feb 2010, and I have been surprised at the interest in what I have to say – sometimes the support that has been offered is overwhelming – and how quickly my personal ramblings has morphed into an actual functioning blog that people read. Awesome. And I am really loving the interesting ‘community’ that I have found via blogging, I am learning so much!
