The new life of spring, some yummy meals, and a cautionary tale.

Friday Femmes Fatales No 57 (Women Bloggers)

Ten great posts from 10 new (to me) women bloggers. It is here every Friday (more or less ..)

To begin, a cautionary tale about a stalker and an unwise encounter, on Letters from a Broad. Exes who want “one last” something are seldom a good idea, in my experience, even if it was never anything like this bad.

On Unsane and Safe, Jennifer considers differences in the view of self in the West and Africa. Staying on the continent, Sylvia, ticklethepear, reflects on the different experiences of male and female Peace Corps members.

Clare Dudman on Keeper of the Snails (no I didn’t find an explanation), is thinking about ways to increase happiness. (Banning advertising comes into it.)

Belle on Smatterings has turned paparazzi, but the subjects of her attention, some famous babies, aren’t too upset. Staying pictorial, Sabine in Germany, on Not All Cats Are Grey, has a running track that we might all envy. But didn’t she have to stop to take the pictures?

Then — not a blog to be read when hungry — Adriana on What I Made for Dinner had a day off for Mother’s Day, although she still ate very well, judging by the pictures. It gave her a chance to reflect on her mother’s hard work. The author of Tiny Bubbles has also been enjoying the perfect meal.

On mothers, the “Chief Biscuit” on As It Happens has a poem for her mother, and a brief account of her mother’s life.

Finally, on Diary of a Goldfish, the said Goldfish has been having bad luck with laptops (I’m carefully avoiding the obvious line here), but she enjoyed a pleasant day of nostalgia and nature anyway.

If you missed last week’s edition, you can read it on my home site. And please: In the next week if you read, or write, a post by a woman blogger and think “that deserves a wider audience” (particularly someone who doesn’t yet get many hits), drop a comment. It really does make my life easier. (Thanks to Holly and Penny this week!)
