#BlogCrush – week 42

#BlogCrush

Welcome back to #BlogCrush , the kindest linky in the whole of blogland (ok, I’m biased) hosted by myself, Lucy Lucy at Home. and Alice,  Letters to my Daughter 

It is me and Lucy hosting this week, if you are new here then welcome and if you are one of our regulars then welcome back! I love reading everyone’s posts and finding out who everyone’s favourite bloggers are. So, shall we get started?

#BlogCrush – week 38

#BlogCrush

I’m baaaack!!

Firstly, can I just say a massive sorry for going AWOL from this linky, with no explanation as to why I was leaving and what was going on. You lovely lot are an amazing and generous bunch of bloggers and it was so not cool of me to just ditch you all without so much as a goodbye.

Basically, things got pretty stressful back in September, Leo started school, we moved house and I was feeling overwhelmed with the heavy load of blog work I had to get through. Life has calmed down a bit now and I am in a much better head space and I am excited to announce that once a month I will be here, hosting #BlogCrush again with the, quite frankly, friggin amazing Lucy from Lucy at Home.

In my absence, Alice from Letters to my Daughter has joined the #BlogCrush team and she will continue to co host the linky three weeks of the month with Lucy as I just don’t feel able to commit to the linky every week anymore.

Anyway, now you know what’s been going on with me, shall we get this party started? View Post

#BlogCrush – week 29

#BlogCrush

Hooray for Friday! It’s time for #BlogCrush linky week 29, I hope you’ve all found some fab posts to share with us this week and written some amazing content of your own. The weather is telling me that we will be having a few days stuck in the house so I’m looking forward to having some brilliant posts to read and get me through the days we are stuck at home.

#BlogCrush – week 28

#BlogCrush

Yes, Friday is here! And it is a bank holiday weekend, I am SO ready for the family and chill time. How have you all been this week? Ready for some #BlogCrush fun? Let’s do this!

Thank you everyone who linked up last week, there were so many brilliant posts as always and they have served as excellent reading material to distract me from the kids causing chaos and trashing my house. If you are hear because someone tweeted you saying you were their #BlogCrush – hello! This is a linky with a difference, a linky all about promoting the work of bloggers we love as well as our own posts. We have grown a lovely little community here over the past 28 weeks but new bloggers are always welcome.

Lucy is still away on her holidays this week so I have lovely Kelly helping me out again with this commenting and sharing, thank you Kelly! View Post

#BlogCrush – week 27

#BlogCrush

It is time for #BlogCrush blog linky again – these weeks are just flying by. Firstly, I am the worst linky host ever as I didn’t even realise it was the #BlogCrush half birthday last week! I wish I could blame being busy or something but truth be told I wasn’t really tracking the half year anniversary and I can’t believe it has come around so soon. So, thank you everyone who has linked up with us for the past half year and for those loyal linkers who have been joining us every week since the very beginning.

This week Lucy is having a well deserved break and is off camping in Wales with her family, loyal linker Kelly from Daydreams of a Mum is stepping in to help me with the commenting so be sure to check out Kelly’s host post this week too. View Post

#BlogCrush – week 26

#BlogCrush

Welcome back to another week of #BlogCrush with myself and my lovely linky co host Lucy. How has your week been? We have been so busy with lots of outings but I have been ill too with some horrible chesty cough thing so that has sucked a bit.

Thank you for joining us for #BlogCrush this week, I really love the community of bloggers who come and join us every week and spread so much bloggy love by commenting on so many posts – you guys are amazing.

Hi everyone, happy Friday! Well, it is actually Sunday morning as I write this because we are headed off for a caravan holiday this week and I will have no internet or computer to set the linky up so I am being super organised.

Thanks everyone who linked up with us last week, we had a big boost in linkers which was lovely to see. Lucy and I really love reading your posts and seeing everyone spread so much love on Twitter, it really makes our Friday to read how happy bloggers are to be chosen as a #BlogCrush.

#BlogCrush – week 24

#BlogCrush

It is Friday so that means it is time for another week of the linky that is all about the blog love’ #BlogCrush . I am being super organised and writing this on Wednesday evening, tomorrow I am off to a blogger event at the Roald Dahl museum with the kids and I am sure I am going to be way to tired to set the linky up then.

How have you all found the first week of the summer holidays? I hope it has not been too stressful having the kids home and you have managed to have lots of fun, despite the rain! We are away again next week, we are going to stay in my parents caravan in Wales for a few days. I can’t wait for some quality family time.

Big thank you to everyone who linked up last week, I really enjoyed reading all your posts. View Post

#BlogCrush – week 23

#BlogCrush

Happy Friday lovely people, are you ready for another week of #BlogCrush linky fun? THANK YOU to everyone who linked up last week, I have been on a mini holiday this week and your blog posts served as excellent holiday reading material. If this is your first time here, hello! I hope you find lots of fabulous blogs to read and please check out the rules below before joining in – #BlogCrush is not like any other linky in the blogland, we are all about promoting the work of others as well as ourselves

Don’t forget we have made a slight change to the rules – *comment on one of my posts , one of Lucy’s posts and TWO personal posts* View Post

#BlogCrush – week 22

Welcome back to #BlogCrush everyone, hope you have all had a good week. Thank you to everyone who linked up last week, I really enjoyed reading all your posts and finding out what bloggers you have all been rushing on.

Lucy and I have decided to make a few changes to the rules this week to try and make the linky fairer to those of you join in every week. From now, when it comes to comment we are asking you to comment on one of my posts , one of Lucy’s posts and TWO personal posts (personal posts are those without a BC in front). Of course we would still love you to comment on people’s #BlogCrush posts too but we feel it is only fair that those of you who actually link up with us should have the opportunity to hopefully get more comments. I hope this makes sense, it not then just give me a shout. View Post

#BlogCrush – week 21

#BlogCrush

Hi all, happy Friday!Thank you to everyone who joined us for #BLogCrush last week, I am guessing lots of you have been too bust enjoying the sun to blog as we didn’t have as many linkers last week. I enjoyed reading all the fabulous posts that were linked up though and am looking forward to reading everyone’s posts this week too.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend, my parents are coming to stay so Oli and I are taking advantage and having a date day on Saturday, I can’t wait. Hope you all have a great weekend, as always 🙂 View Post

#BlogCrush – week 20

#BlogCrush

Happy Friday lovelies! I hope everyone has had a brilliant week, I feel like it has been busy here but I haven’t really achieved very much, does anyone else have weeks like that? Leo had a play session at his new school on Tuesday, I can’t believe he is starting primary school this September – where did that time go?! I am frantically trying to organise an early birthday party for him so he can have one final get together with his pre school friends before we all disappear into the void that is the 6 weeks summer holidays. Anyway, I am blabbing on now, back to the linky.. View Post

#BlogCrush – week 19

#BlogCrush

Welcome back for another week of #BlogCrush , I hope you have found a great post to link up this week and have got something brilliant of your own to share too – I can’t wait to read all of your posts.

Has everyone survived the heat wave in one piece? We have had lots of days outside, I even took the kids in the sea on Sunday! I am looking forward to a quiet weekend with the family, I hope you all have a lovely one too. View Post

#BlogCrush – week 18

#BlogCrush

Happy Friday all and welcome back for another week of #BlogCrush .

Has everyone had a good week? It has been so lovely having the sun come out to play, we have enjoyed spending our afternoons outside. The weekend is almost here so that means Father’s Day is almost upon us, I hope all you Dads have a wonderful day, I am not sure what we will be doing, Oli will be expecting a full on fry up in bed on Sunday I’m sure, shame Leo is still too young to cook it himself!!

What is #BlogCrush ?

#BlogCrush is a linky with a difference that I host with wonderful Lucy (Lucy at Home)  .

Friday is here again and that can mean only one thing, it’s #BlogCrush time!

I hope you have all had a lovely week and are looking forward to a relaxing weekend. I have had my nan staying with us since Monday which has been lovely, the kids have enjoyed spending time with their great Nanny and I have enjoyed spending lots of quality time with her too. This weekend I am off out with the Mother in Law to see Sister Act in our local theatre so I am excited for Saturday night to come around.

Thank you to Lucy for hosting solo last week, the break from the linky did me the world of good but I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things now and reading all your posts.
