It’s good to be back! A big welcome to our weekly #SharingtheBlogLove Showcase. I’ve really missed catching all of your posts (although I’ve had my hands pretty full!) so it was lovely to read through them all over this last week and ease back into things.
If you’re new to #SharingtheBlogLove, these are mine and Laura’s favourite posts from last week’s linky. As part of the linky we’d like you to choose one post from each showcase post (one from mine and one from Laura’s) to head over to and leave a comment to show them some extra blog love. It’s always lovely to take a look at our featured posts this week and see how many extra comments they’ve had from you guys!
Diggerland is somewhere that’s been on my radar for a little while now and I loved reading Alana’s review. Although driving a digger isn’t exactly top of my wishlist, a certain 3 year old in my family would absolutely love it! I’d not realised until reading Alana’s review that there is so much more there than just diggers – a Little Tikes play area for little ones, go karts, and a pretty awesome looking soft play. There are Diggerlands in Kent, Durham, Devon, Yorkshire, and Worcestershire, so there should be one near you wherever in the country you’re based.
The summer holidays are in full swing and 6 weeks is a pretty long time! Lucy’s list of stay at home activities for the summer holidays will keep your little ones entertained, with so many ideas for themes and activities around those themes. With such an extensive list, maybe you’ll even manage not to hear those dreaded words … “I’m bored”!
I always love a birthday post to your child – there’s something so heartfelt and sentimental, and they always capture that child so perfectly in that moment in time. Sarah’s post, Toby is Four, is a great read – four is such a special milestone age (or does it just seem like that to me as it’s the next big one coming up for us?), they are learning so much. There’s so much change that has happened in the last year, so many things that they can now do that they couldn’t before.
I always love Louise’s writing – it manages to be heartfelt and inspiring at the same time. If you’re not familiar with her blog, her eldest daughter, Jessica, was born with a heart condition, and her post, It’s all in the Little Moments, is such a lovely read. I’m a big believer that it’s the little moments that make life, and that make parenting in particular, but I can imagine it’s even more so when your child has a serious medical condition. And while you have those wonderful little moments, you also have the additional little moments – the worries and the constant concerns. When those little moments of your day to day have that constant worry lingering behind them.
Did you catch any of these last time? If not, please head over and give them a read and a comment!
