A big welcome to our 11th week of #SharingtheBlogLove and our weekly Blogger Showcase! Laura and I are so pleased that last week was another new record number of people linking up – 46 linkers! Thank you all so much for joining us, it really is a pleasure to have you with us. It’s so lovely to see how much commenting is going on too – it really makes this feel like such a lovely group of bloggers!
If you’re new to #SharingtheBlogLove, these are our favourite posts from last week’s linky. We love that each week we can choose a few favourites for you all to read, comment and show a bit of extra love!
Max has never really shown much love for soft toys, but he does love his ‘Dog-dog’, a well loved spaniel who he takes to bed every night. I remember taking him on holiday with us and being nervous about the thought of losing him, so I can only imagine the panic that sets in when you discover your child’s favourite comforter is missing! The comforter that goes everywhere with you, that is almost a member of your family it’s so well loved. I felt I was living the search in Candid Cake Club’s Not just any Bunny – my heart was in my mouth as the search team were in operation! I love the little twist ending too!
I’ve been a fan of Kippers and Curtains for a while now and I loved Our weekend on the Island – a trip to the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. A set of gorgeous photos that perfectly sum up a summer day on the beach – when a picture says a thousand words!
I’m not quite a Stay at Home Mum, but I only work two days a week from home, and maternity leave is not too distant a memory for me, so I really related to Stay-at-Home Mums deserve a weekend too. I always look forward to the weekend so much these days, far more than I did when I was working, for all of the reasons Kirsty gives. I’m a happier, better mum when I have my partner beside me – our weekends are precious family time!
I don’t know what happens when you get pregnant and give birth, but it seems that suddenly everyone wants to weigh in with negativity. I remember very well the people who thought it was fine to joke about being tired in pregnancy – “Just wait until the baby comes, haha!” And then the people who, once you’ve had the baby, want to tell you how every next stage is harder – “Just wait until he’s crawling / walking / talking / hitting the terrible twos / becoming a threenager / starting school / a teenager”. It seems some people just like to throw in some negativity. I loved Emma’s Stop Wasting My Flava – such a great read about celebrating the good times and not bringing people down.
I love that 3 of 4 of this week’s featured posts are blogs that I’ve discovered through running this linky – it’s such a lovely way to find new reads!
Did you catch any of these last week? If not, please head over and give them a read and a comment!
