Some Moggers do have ’em

A thought struck me the other morning while I was drying my hair before work (yes of course that detail is relevant…. Ok it isn’t really.) However, the thought that’s struck me was this.. Myself and Miss LG are in a world of Mummy Bloggers at the moment, which is completely our choice of course, and one which I love, because the stories that are told and the life advice that is shared cannot be compared to… but the fact is, I’m not a Mummy at all.. Even though I’d love to count my 2 years au-pairing as being a Mummy (because I did every little thing for those angels devils in disguise)..but I won’t and I’m sure Miss LG isn’t either.. unless of course you count her.. no actually, I’ve got nothing, she is as far from maternal as anyone can get .. (Her words folks…)

So I have taken the decision upon myself  to sit down and work out a time frame with Miss LG for when we will both pro create together, so we can form our own generation of Mummy Bloggers.. and at this time, I shall pronounce our title to be “MOGGERS”. (clearly the coolest shortening of Mummy Bloggers you have ever heard… I know right.. Mind = Blown)

This group duo of “MOGGERS” will rule the roost. We will flash our cameras in our little ones eyes until they think they are doing the jive at a flash dance disco ball party. We will push our prams in synch to the sweet sweet sounds of Fall Out Boy (okay maybe sweet sweet sounds is the wrong term to use) non the less we will listen to them. We will holiday together, OH THE TRIPS! Us and our wee lil Mogmogs strolling along the beach.. oh I can feel the sand between my toes already.

But until this time comes, until I have orchestrated this synchronised bun in overning (new word), we will continue to read on and communicate with all the current Mummy Bloggers and enjoy engaging with this lovely group of people, who, don’t get me wrong, don’t always blog about their babies, in fact majority of them don’t, they just blog about life and love and trials and tribulations like all of us. It’s lucky they don’t mind us joining in for the ride! But let me just say I am one of the most worded up non Mamas going at the moment with all the knowledge and experiences I read and learn about every day.. and that, I wouldn’t trade the world for.

This is a slightly tongue in cheek , ill harming satire post that at the end of the day is really just an ode to all the current Mummy Bloggers out there who are copping a beating at the moment with lots of b.s controversy surrounding the blogging world.

Keep doing what you are doing and don’t let anyone steer you away from it. It’s your own little piece of the universe, you can do with it what you may and nobody has the right to tear you down for it.

Now I’m off to email Miss LG so we can get this time table down pat a.s.a.p.

Future Mogger out. xx

Linking up with some cool kids at Diary of a SAHM for IBOT. Head over and have a read!

coloursofsunset - Hilarious! Man I’d love it if you guys did procreate at the same time. I’ve paid my dues. It’s time I got to sit back and watch someone else! 🙂 My bestie and I were going to have kids at the same time too, but it didn’t happen. I beat her by about 18 months! She’ll probably beat me to a second tho. Ahh fun, I imagine you get to read all the best/funniest/grossest stuff and not much about the absolutely wonder and purest love ever that having a child brings.

June 5, 2012 - 11:24 am

Mum of Adult Kids - Loved your post! I’m at the opposite end of the scale. I’m a mum, but no longer a mummy. That’s all behind me now, sort of!
Visiting from IBOT

Rachel from Redcliffe Style - Great term, Moggers. I posted earlier this week and I am a bogger. I love that we can be whatever we want, whenever we want. Rachel x

June 5, 2012 - 1:26 pm

MsMandie - Moggers. Excellent term. I nearly like it as much as the phrase “sychronised bun in ovening”. I look forward to reading more from the Moggers 🙂

June 5, 2012 - 4:36 pm

Penny - Moggers, so funny! At first i thought you meant muggers, like you’re both going to steal old ladies handbags!

June 5, 2012 - 5:42 pm

Meagan - hahah you can never be too prepared I say! The thing is, in the real world, all i hear is all the lovely stuff.. its nice to read the nitty gritty!!! I think it would be super awesome to have bubbas at the same time as one of your besties! We can only try ha ha!

June 5, 2012 - 5:46 pm

Meagan - ha ha I was laughing a bit when I titled it too! We are rocking future Moggers!!! xxxx

June 5, 2012 - 5:47 pm

Meagan - Thanks for visiting! Yes, when I thought of this post i laughed a lot, then showed Miss LG and she was all for it! We are going to be so knowledgeable when the time comes! that for sure!!!

June 5, 2012 - 5:48 pm

Meagan - you will ALWAYS be Mummy.. I’m 27 in a week and my ‘mum’ will always be my mummy! Even price Charles called the queen “MUMMY” last night ha ha! Thanks for visiting xx

June 5, 2012 - 5:49 pm

Meagan - We CAN be anything!! whatever makes us happy hey! I’m going to head over and read all about your “Bogging” as awkward as that is sounding!!! xx

June 5, 2012 - 5:50 pm

Meagan - Hahaha yeah I even shock myself with the crap I come out with sometimes, so I am glad you appreciate it !!! Synchronized bun in ovening is ALL the rage!!! Thanks for dropping by ! xx

June 5, 2012 - 5:52 pm

Meagan - Penny, I really hope it doesn’t come to that ha ha! hahaha we could be Mugging Moggers .. eeeek ! Don’t let the press get onto that one!! xx

June 5, 2012 - 6:22 pm

Carly - Moggers – I love it. As Meagan said above – don’t let the press onto that one.
Yes, the current media trend towards mummy bloggers is ridiculous. Honestly I don’t know any 2 mummy bloggers out there who are the same, everybody has a unique story to tell, different experiences and is out their rocking it their way!

June 5, 2012 - 7:56 pm

Meagan - hey Carly! Yes thats it, everyone is different, every has their own story to tell.. I cant believe all the crap thats going on.. I honestly think those with issues are just jealous of this amazing community… I say rock on doing= what you’re doing and if someone isnt happy with it, their issue completely!!! xx

June 5, 2012 - 10:12 pm

[email protected] - I wanna be a mogger! So much cooler that mummy blogger.
And you are more than welcome to be an honorary mogger too. Love this post!

Thanks for linking! 🙂

June 6, 2012 - 9:23 am

Meagan - hahaha, yeah its got a nice ring to it hey ?! ha ha, honorary for a little while yet!! But we will get there!! Thanks for letting me join in the fun of IBOT’ing! xx

June 15, 2012 - 10:36 pm

Me - Sorry to burst your bubble (or LG’s bubble) – I would have to be the least maternal person I know on this earth – she might come a close second at best !!!! Have fun and enjoy what the Mummy Bloggers share and use it when you need it.
Have a great weekend !
Me

What time is it you ask ? OH, its RANT O’CLOCK !

I feel that I’ve come to this cross path in my life where I just can not any longer stand STUPIDITY. I mean, my job involves dealing with a lot of stupid people and I think I have done reasonably well for the past 2 years in tolerating it.

People who I come into contact with who leave me with the feeling of ‘No really, how in the world did you get a job, let alone a job in HR or Accounts or whatever..Because you don’t even posses basic intelligence’, they are making me mad, and making me question the state of our humanity.

I may be coming across harsh and for that I apologise, but I just don’t think you understand. I’m really not being offensive to the greater population (well maybe I am, but I AM sorry) I’m not saying you have to be super smart Stephen Hawkins style in anything, just don’t be STUPID about it.

I work in a technical environment and I am basically the least technical person there, but I am not stupid. If I don’t know something technical that crops up on my scene I will read up on it, I will query someone on it. I won’t just sit on my caboose pretending I will never need to know that again or just being plain naive about it.

What I witness here day in and day out is just that. People blatantly forgetting they have something lodged between their ears, they basically just want to be spoon fed everything, and that does not bode well with me.

Let’s take for instance;

Subject A)
Now, this guy sat on HOLD for over 35minutes the other day, So while I was dealing with other things I thought, holy heck, the world MUST have blown up, else why would this guy still be waiting for me to get to him. Once I got to him, I can’t explain to you my exasperation when he asked the question “How do I mark all my emails as READ in my inbox”……
Me (through gritted teeth): “You right click on your inbox and “mark All as read”
Him: “OH right, sure, that was easy, thanks”

I’m sure that did not warrant 35 minutes on hold, I’m sure that didn’t warrant making me feel like something massively catastrophic had happened, and I’m sure as hell SURE that didn’t warrant him NOT looking outside the box and or opening a Google page if he really was that LOST! Plain stupidity at its finest.
I could go on about work but I feel the next half change in topic is warranted.

Subject B)
Now, this a few of you would be familiar with, its stupidity of a different sense.. The sense where people post stupid irrelevant, horrid, non thought through, dim witted ANNONYMOUS comments on your blog.. More often than not distasteful and full of rubbish they have generally just made up on the spot without giving any thought of human decency and what repercussions this can sometimes have!

Now we leave our blogs open to these kind of things, as in anonymous comments. But I personally leave this open and always have on all my blogs because some people don’t have blogs but still want to read and should be able to comment thoughtfully and properly on said blog. However, It just never ceases to amaze me that someone can be bothered writing a hate post. How about you don’t bother reading?. How about as soon as you get to the point in the post that you don’t like, you leave! This isn’t rocket science folks.. there is a cross on the top right hand side of most browsers…

People put their heart on their sleeve when they write posts; it’s their space, their little piece of the world that they are delicately choosing to share with people. Don’t go making it a place of bullying any further. We are all humans, all just wanting to get our voice out there, without being hated on. So.. with that said KEEP YOUR NASTY HATER COMMENTS TO YOURSELF FOOLS!

I’m thinking of starting a MANIC MONDAY link up day, where we forget all the lovey bits and pieces and get our RANT on just like this post, because it IS Monday after all, most hideous day of the week.. things only go up from here! With me? Or against me ?

May 28, 2012 - 9:00 pm

Bec - I feel ya sister. I will be looking for a rant on Monday’s so I’m in. Love the post. X

May 28, 2012 - 10:49 pm

Me - I’m with you on stupid people and anonymous comments. Stupid people are hard to stop – there are just too many of them. Anonymous commenters – I go back to “If you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” – and if you want to say something horrible and nasty, at least own it by leaving your name and don’t hide behind being anonymous !!
Think Monday rants a great idea – if only to rant about it being Monday !!!

May 28, 2012 - 11:27 pm

Meagan - Yes! Monday rants are the bomb diggity, gotta let it all out there snd soldier on with the rest of the week! Thanks for reading sweets xx

May 28, 2012 - 11:31 pm

Meagan - Yes yes yes!!! If you are gunna have the audacity to post something horrid then atleast back yourself up with some guts and leave your name! Agreed!!
Once i figure all the link ups, we are going to hit Manic Monday like raging bulls!!! Xx
