Pick ‘n Mix Linky – 5th August 2016


Welcome to the Pick ‘n Mix Fridays blog linky with myself and the very lovely Eilidh from Mummy and Monkeys.


I’m going to whisper this in case I scare it off again but *the sun has finally come back to Cornwall*. Whilst you read this tomorrow, I will quite likely be on a log flume or similar as we are going out for the day with family. Si has the day booked off and I can not wait!


I hope you are all surviving and hopefully enjoying the school holidays. My boys have only fallen out twice and there haven’t been any black eyes or nose bleeds cause by fists so far, so they must be on their best behaviour.


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.


One week where the time just got away from you is understandable, but every week is just unfair on everyone else. We try to keep it as fair as possible.


Also commenting is one of the best ways to increase your Domain Authority, so it is a win win for everyone concerned in my opinion. I personally do as much commenting every week on your linked up posts and other blogger’s sites as I can manage.


Each week myself and Eilidh over at pick a favourite each to feature on our own sites, and if you are chosen feel free to grab the badge below. Equally we won’t be offended if you don’t ;)

My favourite post this week came from Tor at Teacup Toria, with her post Watch Out World. I love reading that the future is looking bright for Tor at the moment and her posts at the moment resonate with me a lot.


It isn’t something I write about because of my boys, but I do know it takes a lot of strength to admit that a relationship isn’t working and walk away when it will mean being a single parent and stepping into the unknown again.


It took me seven years… and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

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 in to your #PicknMix tweets for a retweet from both of us to my 15k followers and Eilidh’s 8k.


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 – okay most weeks…..

Thanks for linking up :)
