Big Pink Link #86

Well, as per usual at the moment I completely forgot I was hosting the wonderful Big Pink Link this week and I am ‘fashionably late’ by oh, erm, 4 hours. Could have been worse I suppose…

Anyhoodlums, here are the WOW’s from last week and the link to this week’s link up.

HAPPY LINKING BIG PINK LINKERS!


Lucy from This Mum’s Life has chosen this post by The Mummy Bubble as her WOW. Lucy said,

“My WOW for this week! The Mummy Bubble perfectly sums up what it’s like to have a bad day as parent, with some stories guaranteed to make you feel less alone”.

Laura from Five Little Doves has chosen this post by And then there were Two. Laura said,

“I agree with every single word of this and as parents I think we should all be more aware about the importance of our children’s idols”.

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

Big Pink Link #66

It’s time for the #bigpinklink again folks!

Another week has flown by and we are now just 4 weeks away from the Summer Holidays! Eek!

Excitement and apprehension fill me at the same time – and I am currently stock piling Gin in preparation.

4 more weeks of not having a complete hovel as a house, 4 more weeks of not playing referee to three ferrel children for 6 weeks solid, 4 more weeks of sneakily watching some trash TV whilst I clean the house.

So without further ado, onto the WOW’s!


 The first wow chosen by the baking goddess that is Kirsty who blogs over at Winnettes is by the very talented, Tooting Mama.

Kirsty said; “I loved this post by Tooting Mama. I think whatever our shape or body type we all have insecurities, things we would change. Whilst I think it is relatively healthy to want to better yourself with diet and exercise I refuse to allow the media dictate the ‘perfect ’body shape. This has become an even bigger concern for me now I have two daughters. The women discussed in this post really are inspirational”.

The second wow chosen by Kirsty is by Cheryl who writes over at Tea or Wine.

Kirsty said; “This post by Cheryl of Tea or Wine really struck a cord with me. Ellie starts school this year and whilst she hasn’t displayed any real adverse behaviour I know she is anxious about it. Taking a step back and thinking about why school is scary for the kids as well as us parents is so important”.

The first wow by the beautiful Lou from Pink Pear Bear is by the beautiful and heartwrenching Postcards for Findlay

Lou said; “My first WOW is for Postcards from Findlay with an absolutely heartbreaking story. Their beautiful photos will always be missing one person”.

The second wow from Lou is this one by Burnished Chaos .

Lou said; “Finding the positives in the end of precious precious nap times. It’s not all bad folks!”

Big Pink Link #64

Hello again you lovely Big Pink Link linkers! So, I have very kindly been asked to help out hosting Pink Pear Bear’s ‘Big Pink Link’ again! I am truly crapping my pants honoured and I hope I don’t cock it up and make a bit of a boobie of myself. Thank you Lou, Lucy and all the other Big Pink linkers for trusting me enough to join the fold this week.

This weekend has been a fairly chilled one in our household thanks to a mammoth slight hangover yesterday and the husband having either man flu or a bad bout of hayfever today. The kids have been out in the paddling pool though, living the childhood dream, and even the BBQ got fired up for the first time today. The only time, other than Christmas Day, that my husband cooks (yes, I still do all the prep and cleaning up but it’s still a novelty!)

So, without further ado, it’s *fanfare* Big Pink Link time with my wonderful co-host, the lovely Jenny from Monkey & Mouse!

Here we go!


Pink Pear Bear

 

 First, this weeks WOW’s, chosen by the lovely Lucy from This Mum’s Life and Lou from Pink Pear Bear.

The first of Lucy’s WOW’s comes from the award winning and bloody smashing Prabs from Absolutely Prabulous. Lucy said, “My first WOW, from the fabulous Prabs. A sad, tear jerker of a read, but so beautifully articulated. A must read post”.

The second of Lucy’s WOW’s comes from the brilliant Meagan from The Mum Project. Lucy said, “Another beautiful one from The Mum Project. Hugely relatable, poignant and a heartfelt ode to her relationship”.

The first of Louise’s WOW’s is by Lucy from Muffin top Mummy. Lou said, “My first Wow is from Muffin Top Mummy and I can so relate to how my daughter was at the same age, she has thankfully grown out of the worst of it but was just like this all those years ago“.

The second of Louise’s WOW’s is by Aleena from Mummy Mama Mum. Lou said, “My second comes from Mama Mummy Mum and is all about the power struggles you can have with wilful children. I am sensing a theme here! It’s a good reminder that sometimes we need to be the grown up and not try and ‘win’ all the time”.

Grab yourselves a WOW badge folks! You’ve earned it!


And now onto this week’s link up.

Happy linking folks!

Big Pink Link #43

Hello again you lovely peeps. So, somehow I managed to not completely cock up my debut part in the Big Pink Link last week and the gorgeous Lou at Pink Pear Bear has once again allowed me to co-host this week! I promise she isn’t drunk on too much Mulled Wine…

The Christmas tree went up in the Knutter household today and I managed to not completely loose my shizzle with the kids in the process. A feat worthy of at least one large Bailey’s later on tonight don’t you think?!

So, without further ado, it’s *fanfare* Big Pink Link time with my wonderful co-host The Ordinary Mum (who is one of THE LOVLIEST bloggers I have come across, knows as much about Disney as I do cocktails and she also takes the cutest photos of her little ones. A very talented wife, mother and blogger)

So, here we go!


First, the WOW’s chosen by the lovely Lucy from This Mum’s Life and myself!

The first of Lucy’s WOW’s comes from the ever wonderful Our Rach Blogs was honest, heartbreaking and so raw. I really felt for her but could also identify with some of her feelings, and from the comments it looked like many others did too.

The second of Lucy’s WOW’s comes from A Life in Practice speaking about a moment where she her instincts were screaming for her to be doing something differently, but feeling overpowered, has also been something that I’ve experienced. The message of trusting your instincts when it comes to your children, no matter who you upset, is an important one.

The first of my WOW’s comes from The Tale of Motherhood. It’s a heartfelt piece about PND and how it’s so important to talk about it. It’s such a difficult time of year to be suffering with depression or PND because people expect you to be happy, excited and jovial as the festive period is upon us. This piece lets you know that it’s ok to not be ok. You’re not alone.

The second of my WOW’s comes from the lovely Winnettes. As you all know, I LOVE my cocktails. Well, tipples in general actually. This post features some amazing Winter Cocktails for you all to make yourselves. Clearly this is right up my festive alley and I am adamant I will be trying all of the recipes in this post over the next few weeks!

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

And now on to this weeks linkup! Happy linking!
