<p>Congrats! You're in!</p>

Hi and welcome to ‘The List‘.  If you are new here, ‘The List‘ is a great linky that I co-host with Hannah from Mums Days.  The idea is simple, just link up any post that is in list/bullet point format, easy! I use mine to record my weekly highlights and remind myself of my hit list and targets, but yours could be a ‘top ten’ list or anything you fancy.  Your posts can be old or new, all welcome.

This week I am linking You know you’re a blogger’s child when…., and A blogger’s guide to linkys.  Hannah is sharing her At home winter outfits ideas and great post looking at the positives of returning to work following maternity leave.

We have a #TheList Pinterest board to pin all your fabulous lists, please send a request if you would like to join board and share your lists!

Hannah and I are thrilled that so many of you continue to link up and we love seeing the new faces too!  The range of posts make this linky fabulous!  As usual each week both Hannah and I pick our own top 3 lists and give them a little shout out in our posts.  I always struggle with this part, but again I had to narrow it down and my favourite’s are;

Spider mummy

I really liked Spidermummy’s post highlighting the fun and games of being a mum to 3 under 5’s!  Yikes rather you than me!

taming twinsCaramel Rocky Road Cake and I am on a diet…..  that is all!


Now time for my list;


  • I have just finished my first month of Diet Chef and I am pleased to announce that I have lost 19lbs and a total of 29 inches.
  • After an awful start to the week (and end of last) with Baby being ill.  She started to pick up mid week, which was a relief.
  • Mr Hubby is going away with work for three days next week, which I am not looking forward to.
  • I need to make more effort with my appearance.  Since having Baby I have lost all sense of my own style.  I want more polish!
  • Read life low; Baby being so sick.  Her temperature went as high as 40.1 and she had such a awful rash all over her.  It was very worrying.
  • Real life high; The lovely support from friends and relative strangers, via text and social media wishing Baby well and asking how she was.


  • I did my first vlog!  I have wanted to try for a while.  Forgive me, it is my first time, totally off the cuff and Baby was trying to maim herself in the background! (and I don’t have a stand hence the wobbles!).
  • I need to reassess what I do and what linky’s I take part in, as I struggle for time and space on the blog calendar.
  • New blog discovery: I don’t know how I have not come across Polly’s lovely blog Polly Mixtures before.  I really love it and it is going to be a regular read for me now.
  • Best post I read this week: This post in support of Zoella, by my lovely friend Mrs H.  Also this wonderful post by Emma at Life at the Little Wood (made me cry).
  • Blog high; Getting my highest ever hits in one day on my blog and so my best ever week.
  • Blog low; This week has been super busy and with Baby being ill, it has been a little full on at times.
  • Giveaways I have shared: Breastfeeding Survival Kit, E45 lotions and your chance to win a Microwave!
  • I am so excited to be off to BlogFest on Saturday #Blogfest
