22nd January – Pick ‘n’ Mix Blog Linky

Happy Friday everyone and welcome to Pick ‘n’ Mix Fridays blog linky with me and the lovely Eilidh over at Mummy and Monkeys.

I’ve had one of those weeks where it’s been full of highs and lows, but luckily mostly highs. Yesterday I was even on the radio station The Hub in Cornwall – I was ridiculously nervous but it was actually a lot of fun in the end! How has your week been?

Pick n Mix

My favourite post from last week’s Pick ‘n’ Mix came from Christine over at The Kenny Family with her post ‘10 Reasons for Not Replying To Your Text Right Away‘. This post had me nodding along and laughing, as I am a serial non text replier.

I honestly believe I have replied or keep meaning to, but I know I drive people mad replying days later – AND I have just this second realised I’ve done it again, forgotten to text one of my sisters back … sorry Bex!

The Kenny Family

On to the link up! There are a few guidelines to try and follow for our linky please, to keep things fair for everyone else linking up.

  • Add our badge to your post (ask for help if you need it, we never mind)
  • Add your link or links (a max of two please) to the Inlinkz below
  • Please comment on the host posts
  • Comment on the post before yours, and as many other posts as you have the time to visit.
  • Use the #PicknMix on social media and when commenting so that others know you have a Pick ‘n’ Mix Fridays post for them to return the favour and read
  • Feel free to tag us in your post tweet @stevie_couch and @MummyandMonkeys for a retweet, again use the #PicknMix Please be aware though, that if the title to your post has a swear word in it that isn’t at least partly obscured by symbols, then I will try to choose another post from your twitter feed to retweet. I try to keep my social media and blog 100% family friendly, plus I have several 9 and 10 year olds from my youngest son’s class following me on twitter.

You can add any post (or two) new or old, any subject including reviews, competitions and more. ALL bloggers are welcome, whether you are a parenting blogger, beauty blogger or any other type of blogger – so long as you write in English, as google translate isn’t always up to the job. The more of a ‘mix’ the better.

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 manage pretty much every week to read and comment on every post.

Have a lovely weekend everyone,

    If I don’t reply to a text right away then I forget – which is what happens most of the time! lol I’m surprised people are tweeting swear words. My accounts are family friendly too. That’s amazing you have 10-year-olds following you, I can’t believe people let their kids on Twitter at that age! Anyway, total sidetrack there – thanks so much for hosting! x

      I know what you mean, neither of mine are allowed on social media yet much to their disgust ;) I come across graphic disgusting videos and all sorts on Twitter though, and there is no way I’d want them seeing that. I think swearing is becoming the norm, Mumsnet tweet swears now, but personally it’s just not what i want to be doing.
