Welcome back once again to What I Read, it's getting harder to pick out which posts to share because there are so many brilliant posts out there. I hope you enjoy this week's selections.

What I Read 15 | Morgan's Milieu: #WhatIRead Badge






Morgan's Milieu | What I Read 15: photo of Kim Carberry, aka Northumberland MamMy boys have played Minecraft for months now, Big Prince's obsession with it started a couple of years ago and we have bought it for the Xbox, on the PC and he's asked to spend more on the various packs available. To me Minecraft is Lego on the console and I don't really see a game there. It doesn't interest me at all and I have no intention of playing. Kim, over at Northumberland Mam, was made to play it with her family this week. She did have the same opinion as me but she has changed her mind since playing. Read about her adventures as she stepped into the world of Minecraft.










Of all the social networks I spend most of my time focusing on Twitter. I schedule tweets, interact occasionally and retweet when I find something I like. I've always known I wasn't doing it right, I'm just kind of winging it. Steph's post this week has been a huge help and I intend to keep it bookmarked for the future. In Strategy Saturday - Owning Twitter Steph talks about the trends and analyses twitter accounts to find out what they're doing right. This post is full of useful tips and tricks to having you owning Twitter!

Being a mum is hard, we're expected to give our children the 'perfect' life. A happy home, a sparkling house and a mum who can cook, bake, create. Striving to be the perfect mum won't get you anywhere but having good intentions and not fulfilling them is no better. Michelle talks about her Mama fail moment and asks What Can Snow White Teach Me About Joy? She decides that she needs to keep practising and she'll get there. I'm totally with her on this one, practise makes perfect. Or somewhere close anyway. 










Morgan's Milieu | What I Read 15: A Photograph of Nikki Thomas, aka Stressy Mummy
Big Prince is 10 years old, turns 11 in August, and this means he has his SATs this year. He has been attending "Booster Classes" after school and on Saturday mornings so that he can practise. I don't think he's bothered by it all to be honest but he knows these exams are important, the teachers keep telling him so. Nikki is both a teacher and a parent so can see both sides of this. In her post 10 things you need to know about Key Stage 2 SATs she explains what they are and how to deal with this time, whether or not your child is stressing.











Morgan's Milieu | What I Read 15: A photo of Julie from Menopause 4 Thought.I'm a firm believer in our past making us who we are today. Our experiences, feelings, and sometimes injuries, impacted our lives and moulded us. Although you may have regrets or wish you could turn back time to rectify something that went wrong that would have an impact on who you are today. I often think back through my life and wonder what would've happened if I'd done things differently. Perhaps I could've gone to university, done a psychology degree like I wanted, but I didn't. I don't regret the choices I made because they led me to where I am right now, doing what I love. A post that touched my heart this week was written by Julie over at Menopause 4 Thought. She wrote a letter to her younger self in which she talks about her life. I enjoyed reading this and it made me thankful for the things I've been through and the things I have in my life. Change happens and we need to find a way to roll with the punches - they'll stop eventually.










Morgan's Milieu | What I Read 15: Maddy Bennett who writes at Writing Bubble

What are your dreams? Do you wish you could be a famous singer, performing at the Brit Awards, or would you prefer a large house and quiet life? My dreams are small by comparison - a book, with my name on the cover. That's it. Much like Maddy who would also like to see her name on the cover of a book. A lovely lady who runs the writing linky #WhatImWriting with another wonderful writer, Chrissie, Maddy wrote a post this week that made me reflect on my dreams. In Achieving Dreams Maddy talks about the realities of those dreams and whether or not we realise what we're hoping for. Do you?

Maddy's post was also featured in the BritMums Carnival hosted by Mummy Tries.




That's another What I Read over for this week, please do head over to the other blogs and read. There are some very talented writers here and I'd love you to discover someone new.
