Two new ways to follow my blog…and an anniversary

September 19, 2012

1) Via email – just add your email adress to the box to the right of the page, and you’ll get any new posts delivered to your inbox when they are posted (once a day, max)

2) A Baby on Board Facebook page – I finally got round to setting this up a few weeks ago. I’m just using it to post links to new blog posts  at the moment – so it’s pretty much like RSS, just on Facebook – so if you’d like to like it, that would be lovely

Also, it completely passed me by that it was the one year anniversary of setting up this blog last month (this was my first post, all the way back in the pregnant mists of time). Twelve months and one baby down the line, here we are. So I wanted to say a huge thanks to everyone who has read it, come back and read it again, commented, emailed me or got in touch about anything I’ve written. It means an awful lot, so thank you.

Baby under sofa

And look who I found under our sofa bed yesterday when I turned my back for a second?  The incredibly speedy small person in question is currently napping – hurrah – and I’m lying on the sofa watching this week’s Great British Bake Off. Which is appropriate as it’s been a biscuits for breakfast kind of day…zzZZz.

    Gill, you wonderful mummy
    We thought we’d swing-by and post
    An unconventional comment
    Which is more different than most

    Congrats on the one-year anniversary
    Of writing this wonderful site
    (We used to follow Minxology
    And even that blog filled us with delight!)

    We’re the folks behind team Bosch
    You may have heard of our brand
    From power tools to automotive ….
    Our products can be seen across the land

    You may know us for home appliances
    And probably have something of ours in your house
    You may even have grown up with Bosch products
    Before moving in with Alex, your spouse

    But we bet that you weren’t aware
    That we do much more than a range of cool kettles
    We also have heating and hot water solutions
    Ideal for when the snow outside settles

    When you went to Miami early last year
    Even before you both departed
    Our airport surveillance was keeping you safe
    Ensuring your holiday got started
    If you and Alex ever buy a car
    We’ll be in that technology all right
    With safety systems to engine management
    We develop these technologies with amazing engineering foresight

    We’re green in our philosophy
    Which is really important to us
    We want to sustain good karma
    Without making much of a fuss

    So deep in all our technology
    At the heart of everything we do
    We wire in quality innovation
    Making sure we also look good for you

    And whilst we don’t sell sonic screwdrivers
    (Sorry Alex, our tech hasn’t reached Galifrey)
    Our lithium-ion cordless power-tools
    Should let you both DIY away!

    Now that Eliza’s growing older
    (and cuter by the day)
    When she first starts talking
    We wonder what she’ll say…?

    Will her first word be “mummy”?
    In an accent, oh-so posh?
    Or will she say “Hi daddy!”
    [We’re hoping she’ll say “Bosch”!]

    As a mummy blogger
    We’re keen to hear your thought
    About how we can go about
    Giving you support

    Because trust us, we know too well
    That a parent’s life is intense
    We may be able to help you
    As our product range is immense

    So whether you’re at Gymboree
    Or out in Crystal Palace
    Cooking in the kitchen
    On the sofa, watching Dallas

    Spare a thought for us, your chums
    In you, a guru we’ve found…
    And you’ll never be that far away
    Because Bosch Is All Around!

    (because Bosch Is All Around)

    Hope you enjoyed that (come on over and say hello on Facebook or Twitter!
