Welcome to the #PicknMix Fridays blog linky with myself and the lovely Eilidh from Mummy and Monkeys.
Happy Friday! We are off for a long weekend away as a family this evening, and I can not wait. Things have been pretty manic at home, as we’re mid re-decorating. Everything has been busy full stop here, so I am looking forward to putting the laptop away and taking a break. I’m determined not to work at all, minus photographs and social media and it is a review stay that we are off on.
I really hope you’ve all had good weeks and have a fun October half term to look forward to. Hopefully the lie-in fairy visits you all as well ;)
On to the linky! If you haven’t linked up to Pick ‘n Mix before or can’t remember the rules, visit the Pick ‘n Mix Guidelines page. Most importantly is to actually comment on other posts, as if we notice you are consistently not commenting on a single other post each week, then we will block you from entering the linky.
At the last count, I have blocked 5 people from linking up, for never adding the badge or commenting on a single other person’s post including mine and Eilidh’s.
Each week Eilidh and I pick a favourite each to feature on our own sites, and if you are chosen, then feel free to grab the badge below. Equally, we won’t be offended if you don’t ;)
This week I have chosen two favourites, my first is from the very lovely Rachel at Mummy in Training with her post – A Letter To My Little Girl. It is a very emotional to post to read, especially when you care about the person who wrote it. Rachel has shown so much strength recently, after losing one of her twins and I greatly admire her.
She and her husband have also raised well over £2000 now for the charity Kicks Count on JustGiving. Blinking amazing Rachel x
My second choice is a bit less heavy, but jumped out at me from the list right away. It was from Cathryn at Little Paper Swans, with her recipe for Crumble Topped Apple Cake. I haven’t tried this yet, but I so need to. It just looks and sounds amazing, someone make it for me please?!
Don’t forget to add our badge from below and include a #PicknMix in your comments and tweets. Tag me @stevie_couch and Eilidh @MummyandMonkeys into your #PicknMix tweets for a retweet from both of us to my 16k followers and Eilidh’s 8.5k
We look forward to reading your links! You will get a visit and comment from at least one of us and many of you will be lucky enough to get one from both of us! I try as often as I can to comment on all posts – you will notice though that some weeks this is at some ridiculous time on the night before the next linky opens.
I also try to like everyone’s Facebook pages, when they have the like box on their site, so if you don’t have one get one and if you wanted to do the same to anyone else’s you see as you go around commenting, I am sure they would love you :)
Thanks for linking up :)
