#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)  . This linky is like no other as not only can you link up one of your own posts but we also ask you to add a post from another blogger to the linky too. So if you have read something this week (or ever) that has really wowed you then please add it as your BC to the linky below. I can’t wait to read this week’s helping of excellent posts!

Featured #BlogCrush posts

My featured post this week comes from Bell From Bow. I loved this post as I read so many blog posts about mummy friends but this one is all about the people we had in our lives before little ones came along, go have a read – Parenting: what my friends with no kids have taught me

#BlogCrush

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.

#BlogCrush – week 16

#BlogCrush

Hello!

Welcome to #BlogCrush week 16. Lucy, how has our linky been running for 16 whole weeks already? Madness.

How was everyone’s half term? Made lots of lovely memories? It has been a bit chaotic here, I have had family come visit and I looked after my niece and nephew from Monday to Wednesday and looking after 4 kids has pretty much finished me off!

I am in a bit a blogging slump at the minute and I have stuff going on that I can’t really talk about (sorry to be vague!) so I am just not feeling myself at the minute. I am taking this week off commenting/retweeting the linky but, fear not, I am leaving you in Lucy’s very capable hands and I will be back next week.

What is #BlogCrush ?

#BlogCrush is a linky with a difference that I host with wonderful Lucy (Lucy at Home)  . This linky is like no other as not only can you link up one of your own posts but we also ask you to add a post from another blogger to the linky too. So if you have read something this week (or ever) that has really wowed you then please add it as your BC to the linky below. I can’t wait to read this week’s helping of excellent posts!

Before we get on to the linky I have a bit of a favour to ask you all. I have decided to put myself forward for the BiBs awards this year and if you enjoy my blog and like what I do then I would love you to vote for me in the best family lifestyle or readers choice categories. I will LOVE YOU forever (just click the badge below..pretty please).

#BlogCrush – Week 15

#BlogCrush

Hello lovelies!

What a horrendous week this week has been. I, like the rest of the country, am absolutely appalled and heartbroken after what happened in Manchester on Monday night. I really do wonder what is happening to this world and I really do fear for what the future will be like for my two boys. If any of you were involved, or have any friends or family who have been affected by the terror attack in Manchester then I am sending all the love in the world. Love will conquer hate. Always.

I have got stuff going on in my personal life right now that is causing me to get feel really stressed and for my anxiety to be going through the roof so sorry if I am not my usual self on this old blog of mine over the next few weeks. Let’s try and perk things up here..it’s a bank holiday weekend AND half term is upon us, I hope you all are planning on doing lots of fun things and spending lots of quality time with your families.
