Hello! I'm really looking forward to reading more of your blog - thanks so much for including me in your blogroll :) Sounds like we are in a very similar place - both in terms of trying to cling onto green principles as parents, and in terms of keeping life fun!

Thanks Ruth! I've discovered blogs quite recently - a great thing to read whilst feeding a baby - and have been enjoying your writing and photos. I'm still finding both parts of my challenge a bit...er...challenging but will keep working on it and share as much as I can!

Hello,

I just discovered your blog and it's great! Tricky having 2 kids so close together so I can fully empathise. Blogs are not a recent discovery for me but having my own blog is! I am still getting used to it all although I have been writing for a few months.
I also try to be as green as possible and we use cloth on the little one but my 2 year old leaks out of them really badly so he is in disposable (much to my dismay). We have begun potty training so hopefully he will only be in a nappy at night before long.
You can find my blog here http://chaiteamum.blogspot.co.uk/
I tried to follow you but for some reason it won't let me but I will figure it out when I am less bleary eyed.

Thanks Carolyn! Look forward to checking out your blog. We found a similar thing with cloth nappies - didn't make it all the way to potty train with our eldest in them. Good luck with the potty training.

Sorry about technical glitch - will try to figure out if it's anything I can fix. It's steep learning curve on all this stuff!

Carolyn (and anyone else who has tried, and failed, to sign up for email updates) - I've fixed it! I think I had the wrong type of link set up on the side bar of the main blog. There are now two options: you can sign up to via email or follow me on twitter to get notified of new blogs. Hope that makes sense.

No worries - I'm not quite sure where the meme originated but I really enjoyed it. Hope you do too. Thanks for the shout out - look forward to seeing your portrait(s) and doing a return shout out :-)

Hi Fiona

I think we have a lot in common. We are a group of kids and parents trying to do something about London's filthy air and we need your help. www.ilikecleanair.org.uk

At the current rate of change, air pollution levels will not fall to legal limits in London until after 2030. That is too late for primary school children. We think people with power have forgotten this and we want to remind them.

So we need people in London to take up this cause. We are planning a load of events in London so that kids and parents can give the Mayor the mandate to clean our air. We would like you to make this campaign your campaign.

What can you do?

-Please take a minute to sign our petition. We're asking the Mayor to reduce pollution to legal limits in all inner London boroughs by 2020.
-Get your child involved. Get them to write letters/draw pictures to CEOs of big companies asking them to tell their drivers to reduce vehicle idling or film your journey to school or design a poster.
-Why not get your school involved? They can mention the campaign in their newsletter and ask parents to sign the petition. You can even test the air around your school. We can put you in touch with suppliers of diffusion tubes.
‚Äč-If you want to become a Clean Air superhero then come along to our Clean Air Action Days. These will be held in central London in March. We dress up as super heroes and hand out flyers!
-If you just want to sing then sing your heart out for clean air at the London Assembly in May! We need parents and kids from all inner London boroughs to meet the prospective Mayoral candidates. Get in touch and we will send you the Clean Air Song to practise. It's very cool.

We are really looking forward to hearing from you.
The Clean Air Team.
