<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 my wonderful friend Hannah from (award winning) 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.  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 an old but popular post Different types of Mummy and also my BlogCamp Lowdown, which is packed full of useful tips.  Hannah is sharing Rainy day activities for toddlers.

Thank you to all the people who linked up last week, it is fabulous to see such a variety of wonderful posts.  Each week both Hannah and I pick our own top 3 lists and give them a little shout out in our posts.  So I struggled with my choice again, but I made a decision and my favourite’s are;

 #TheListI loved Jess’ post on 5 signs of having baby brain.  Having left my phone on the roof of the car twice; the keys up there, car door unlocked while I went round the supermarket and the car door wide open, while I went shopping and for lunch.  So you can see this subject matter is something I strongly identify with!


I enjoyed Ryan’s post, highlighting the 5 things he has loved most about his first year as a dad. I think it is great to read a male perspective (and see it is not much different to my own!).


If you are looking for fun Halloween treats to make your children, then look no further!  This post is packed with fabulous ideas, which we will be trying.

Now onto my list;


  • I lost 5lb in my second week doing Diet Chef and another  8.5″ across 10 measurements.  So in two weeks a total loss of 13lb and 22.5″!
  • My wonderful friend Hannah (Mums’ Days) won the best parenting blog at the NE Blogger Awards.  So proud of you hun.
  • I am looking forward to a family day out at the Baby Show on Sunday.
  • I found out a dear friend is pregnant.
  • Real life high; My weight loss, but also my two blogging achievements seeped into real life 🙂
  • Read life low; Baby likes to scream a lot, usually when I am driving.  It can be pretty hardcore.


  • My most popular blog post this week was; The amazing Braun thermometer giveaway closely followed by last weeks #TheList.
  • My own favourite post this week was; this one about my recent success in the LoveAllDads annual awards.  As it means such a lot to me.
  • New blog discovery: The wonderful The Mummy Daddy Diaries.  Such a lovely read, pop over and put your feet up.
  • Giveaways I have shared: Cheeky Chompers ComfortChew Teether, Stickerscape Children’s Wall Stickers, Natural Sponges
  • Reviews I have shared: Natural Sponges, Stickerscape Children’s Wall Stickers,Stur Drinks Review
  • Blog high;  I moved up to position 91 in the Tots100 rankings!  I am so thrilled!  I also won the Best Non-Dad Blog in the LoveAllDads 2014 awards
  • Blog low; None, this week has been too cool to have a low.
  • I started to work with a couple of new agencies and brands.
