Mums’ List #17

It’s Mums’ List time with the fabulous Hannah over at Mums’ Days.  Mums’ List allows us to share the highlights (personal and blogging) of our week and also the things that still need to be ticked off our Mums’ Lists!

Mums list

 

REAL LIFE

  • I have achieved a fair bit this week.  I could still do with more hours in the day, but couldn’t we all!
  • Baby and I went to London on the train and tube – mini achievement.

#AmazonSummer

(Waiting for our train)

 BLOG & SOCIAL MEDIA

  • My most popular new blog post this week has been this one, but this one had a lot of renewed interest.
  • New blog discovery; Diary of a Midlife Mummy.  I came across the lovely Steph’s blog this week and I love it.  Be sure to check it out!
  • Baby and I went to the #AmazonSummer event in London.  It was a great event with fabulous kids entertainers.  Baby got a goody bag and I was gifted a Kindle Fire HDX.  Thank you Amazon!
  • We have some lovely things in the post winging their way to us for review.
  • I passed the 3.5k followers mark on Twitter and now have almost 1,200 FB likes, which I am really pleased with.  Now need to build up Instagram, Pinterest and Google +   Any takers?….
  • I have started putting together a newsletter (using a fabulous plug in).

 

INSPIRATION

  • This post on Blog Life balance has really got me thinking and it makes some excellent points.  I need to find a better balance.
  • I have found a couple of lovely blogging ladies inspirational this week, with regards to travelling with children.  Mags travelled on her own with 3 small children to London for a blogging event; when I was worried about just getting Baby and I there!.  Also I read this post by Jenny and was amazed at her achievement of travelling solo, that far, with two small children.  If these ladies can, then I can get out and about with Baby more, when the opportunity arises.  Thanks ladies.

    Thanks for the mention hunny! Hope it inspired you. Once you start travelling and getting out with baby more you will be surprised how easy it becomes. It’s just adjusting to what to bring and do. Get creative my lovely.

    It was lovely meeting you and “yellow baby” on Thursday – she certainly kept you on your toes running about after her! Look forward to meeting you at future events.

    There’s something deeply satisfying about building something up from nothing and watching it take off – I guess that applies to both blogging and babies! Congratulations on all your achievements.

    I always worry about travelling around London with my two. It’s never as bad as I think but I can’t help worry about the tube!

      Twitter I have no idea, I just get quite a lot of new follows each day. FB was lower and a few comps built it up, then 2 FB ads increased my likers dramatically x

    Ahhhh Aby. It sounds like you had a really good week. I’ve taken Little Miss H to London on the train a few times and it is quite stressful. Last time, she filled her nappy as soon as we got on the train and through a tantrum because I wouldn’t let her eat food from the train food. But after reading Jenny’s post about travelling to America – I realised that I can’t complain. Also, thanks for the lovely mention. I’ve said it before, but I do have excellent taste. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

      Thank you hun. Luckily we had no nappy issues, although she would have eaten off the floor given half a chance! It was ok and I would do it again xx

      Thank you. It was lovely to meet you to. We get out and about every day, but I guess it was just the distance and not having my car that was bothering me. I won’t think twice about it next time x

    That Amazon event sounds great – I’m jealous!! I need to get on more lists (whatever they are!). it’s all good though love, you’re doing really well and it’s totally deserved :) xxx RE going to London on the train, I think you WERE brave – good for you! I got on a bus with Reuben in Brighton and we both nearly lost it. It was only 10 minutes!! Travelling with kids is like labour, some find it harder than others 😉
