Big Pink Link #87

Bonjourno beautiful Big Pink Linkers!

Another weekend has passed us by and in just 5 Monday’s time (yep, you read that right, 5!!!!) it’ll be *gulp* Christmas Day! I am so disorganised, I really must pull my finger out and do some shopping…

Anyhow, this week I am co-hosting with the bloomin’ marvellous, and Disney mad, Hannah from Just Hannah Jane.

So, now onto the WOW’s for last week…

Lucy from This Mums Life chose this post by Miller in the City as her WOW this week. She said;

“My WOW for this week is from Miller In The City. It’s a very emotional and heartwarming read about the struggles faced by those with premature babies”.

My WOW this week is by And then there were two.

“My WOW this week is by And then there were two. This post had me fighting back a few tears, I won’t lie. I could completely relate to it because, as much as it’s a privilege being able to watch your children grow up, saying goodbye to the last of those firsts is always difficult…”

Help yourselves to a featured post badge you super folks and take a bow!

Big Pink Link #76

Well, looking at the weather outside I think it’s pretty safe to say Summer has well and truly packed up it’s beach balls and left us now hasn’t it. It’s certainly feeling ‘Autumnal’ as my best friend says (it’s her favourite phrase and it drives her husband mad therefore I’ve had to use it on her behalf).

I hope you all had a wonderful break and are beginning to get back into the swing and routine of life. As much as I loved the break, spending time with the kids and having no school run, I do actually need to get some shite done in my life now so back to school has been a welcome relief to be honest with you. My house looks like a Tasmanian Devil has been let loose in it but in reality the carnage has been caused by a 3 year old, 7 year old and 9 year old (oh alright, and their Dad who is just as bad).

I am co-hosting this week with the very lovely, and super talented, Lucy from This Mum’s Life this week.

So, enough chitter chatter, who are our WOW’s this week? Let’s find out!

 The first wow chosen by Laura from Five Little Doves is this one by And then there were two.

Laura said; “My first wow comes from ‘And then there were two’ for this hilarious guide to In the night garden. It had me howling, so funny and all so true!”.

The second wow chosen by Laura is this one by She sees.

Laura said; “My second wow is for ‘She sees’ and her 50 things to do in Autumn post. Just when I was feeling sad about the end of Summer this post reminded me of all the reasons why I love Autumn!“.

The first wow from Lucy over at This Mum’s Life is this one by The Mummy Bubble.

Lucy said, “My first wow is for The Mummy Bubble! This is a comprehensive and VERY true list of all the things you should definitely do before having children!”

The second wow from Lucy is this one by Trips with a Tot.

Lucy said, “Second wow is for Trips With A Tot! Another brilliant list style post, this a brilliant list of where to go in London with children. Me and my husband visited London a lot pre children, but are yet to do the tourist thing with them-I feel inspired to do it after reading this list!”

Big Pink Link #71

Bonjourno Big Pink Linkers!

How the chuffing chuff has another week gone by?! I am getting the fear now. We are only 10 days away from our annual camping escapade to Wales so the Dad’s can sod off mountain biking whilst the mums look after the kids (yep, ask me again why we do it every year?!) and the weather is, for want of a better word, shit. It’s utter crap. Not camping/day out on a Welsh beach weather at all. I don’t believe in spiritual stuff, but I shall be outside in the garden chanting to the skies doing a sun dance for the coming week. Sorry neighbours, please don’t have me sectioned, times are desperate.

Thanks to everyone who joined in #bigpinklink last week – we hope to see you all and maybe some new faces again this week!

I am co-hosting with the lovely Lucy from This Mum’s Life this week – ‘ello there beautiful!

So, enough chitter chatter, who are our WOW’s this week? Let’s find out!

 The first wow chosen by Lucy from This Mum’s Life is this one by Be your own Example.

Lucy said; “I loved this from Be Your Own Example. It was a refreshing, honest, and brilliantly written account of fitting a new baby into family life!”.

The second wow chosen by Lucy is by the wonderful, and pant wettingly funny, R is for Hoppit.

Lou said; “This from Lucy at R Is For Hoppit was absolutely genius. A must read, brilliant account of shopping with children!“.

The first wow from me is this one by Shinners and the Broods.

I absolutely loved reading this frank, honest and bloody hilarious post about the things Sinead has learnt over the years as a mum to 3. I was nodding (and laughing) along to all of her points. And yes, I’m not sorry, but Gina Ford can kiss my cake enhanced butt with regards to her ‘advice’. Couldn’t agree more Shinners!

The second wow from me is this one by Pretty in Playdoh.

I was heartbroken to read how tough she has had it in recent years and was literally awestruck at how brave, headstrong, selfless and honest this post was. I want to wish her all the best for the coming year. I know she will get that 2:1 that she desires and deserves after all the heartache.x

Big Pink Link #70

Well hello there you beauts! I hope you’re all well and you’re braced for the next few weeks of summer holidays – by that I mean you’ve stocked up on alcohol. I certainly have.

So, without further ado, it’s time for the #bigpinklink again! And it’s link up number 70 no less!

Where’s the cake for such a momentous occasion?!

via GIPHY

Who are our WOW’s this week? Let’s find out!


 The first wow chosen by Lou from Pink Pear Bear is this one by It’s a Drama.

Lou said; “This is a brilliant post from It’s a Drama. It perfectly describes how I feel a lot of the time, the rage is real! Although it’s rubbish that others are also suffering, it’s also nice to know that we’re not alone in our ‘hormoan’ traumas.”.

The second wow chosen by Lou is by the wonderful Just saying mum.

Lou said; “This post from Helen hit me square in the feels like a sledge hammer. I feel like time has whizzed past me already with my youngest starting school and I just can’t imagine how it feels to be at the other end of the school journey.“.

The third wow Lou has chosen is by one of our very own #BigPinkLink co-host’s, the beautifully talented Laura from Five Little Doves

Lou said; “Finally, a special mention for this post from one of our fellow guest hosts Laura. I’ve followed her journey this year and it has been similar to my own, I am so pleased to hear it is looking up.”.

The first wow from our lovely Hannah from Just Hannah Jane is this one by Mummy Mama Mum.

Hannah said; “I loved this honest post from Mummy Mama Mum, she talks about her style of parenting and criticisms she has received. She reminds us that every family, parent and child’s needs are different and that we should NEVER judge anyone on how they choose to parent”.

The second wow from Hannah is this one by The Mummy Bubble.

Hannah said, “My second Wow this week is from The Mummy Bubble, I couldn’t help but nod along to her account of how she feels torn between her two children at times. I can honestly say I’ve definitely felt this way and totally take my hat off to anyone who has more than two children, you seriously are wonder parents!”

Big Pink Link #44 – WOW’s

So, my Big Pink Link hosting has come to an end.

*Ahhhhhhh – says the crowd*

I have had a lovely time helping the fabulous Pinklink ladies out and I am grateful to them all for trusting me to not cock everything up!

My final part of hosting is to mention the WOW’s for this week so, without further ado, here they are:

My first WOW is Prabs from Absolutely Prabulous. It’s a post for bloggers, and aspiring ones, and I loved it. We all question why we are doing it at some point and Prabs, as always, has managed to sum up exactly how we feel as well as share the love by mentioning some amazing bloggers. ‘Tis the season of kindness, joy and love and Prabs has this in abundance.x

My second WOW is by the gorgeous Jemma over at Sleepless nights and Ginger Highlights. I had the pleasure of meeting her at BlogFest a few weeks ago and she was just the loveliest person…and she had immaculate hair and makeup. I was in awe! Her post about the stress of having to go to the work Christmas Party, and how it can fill a mum with dread, had me giggling and nodding in agreement. The fear of having a sniff of drink and making a tit of yourself in front of everyone, the panic you feel having to find an outfit, we can all relate to it. Brilliantly written and extremely timely. Well done Jem!x


Hannah from The Diary of an Ordinary Mum has chosen her two WOW’s too. She said:

I absolutely loved this Christmas to do list from Sinead, over at Shinny and the Brood. I’m an absolute loon when it comes to Christmas but even I get a little stressed with it at times, this is a perfectly hilarious post about how to get through Christmas without going completely insane.

This is such a simple but absolutely gorgeous Christmas craft from Claire at A life in practice. These baubles look really stunning but easy enough that even I and the girls could attempt them- plus it doesn’t look too messy, major win in my opinion.
