A big welcome to our weekly #SharingtheBlogLove Showcase. I hope you enjoy our featured posts here and find some great new blogs to follow along the way.
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!
Clothes hangers are one of those annoying things that you never seem to have the right one to hand. Ben is four months old, and already the baby clothes hangers are starting to get too small, and it just seems to wasteful to keep buying new ones, not to mention the expense. I loved Jo’s post, which reviews the Grohanger – a clothes hanger which extends as your child grows. It’s so simple, I can’t believe no-one’s thought of it before!
I’ve always been quite a sensitive person – I often ponder over things I’ve said, and wonder if I might have upset them. I loved Lucy’s positive take on being sensitive, with her poem, I Have A Little Superpower. It’s always interesting to see someone talk about something that you might see in yourself as a flaw, but that actually has lots of positive things that come with it too.
It’s not often I read a recipe and feel inspired to actually go and make something, but this one for Sweet Potato Wedges with Walnut Salsa Verde really grabbed me. Something about sweet potato is so perfectly autumn – the sweetness, the colour? I don’t know, but they’re the perfect comfort food. And the walnuts and salsa verde sound like a wonderful combination with them. This is on my list to try this weekend!
Whenever the subject of miscarriage comes up, I’m always staggered by the number of people who have gone through it. But so often, when it happens to you, you feel like you’re the only one in the world, because people don’t tend to talk about it. Which is why I’ve chosen Rice Cakes and Raisins’ Miscarriage Story as my final post this week. I think it’s a story that’s so relate-able for anyone who’s gone through an early miscarriage, and it’s a very well written and personal post.
Did you catch any of these last time? If not, please head over and give them a read and a comment!
