Welcome back to another week of #TheList, which is a wonderful linky (if last week is anything to go by!) that I am hosting with my lovely friend, Abi, from You Baby Me Mummy (do hop over to see Abi’s list and say hello there).

Abi and I have decided to feature 3 of our favourite posts from the previous week’s Linky as a little thank you and shout out for being awesome…I didn’t realise how hard this would be! But I’ve narrowed it down to…

Running Lavender’s Top 10 Beauty Tips (secrets from someone who knows!)

The DADventurer’s 5 reasons I know I’m a Dad (great to know that my suspicions of what was going on in Mike’s head were true!)

Mummy B’s Autumn Bucket List (love a reason to write to goals/lists!)

On to my list!

Real life

This week has been what I would call BUSY.

1. It was Gabby’s birthday weekend, so that was filled with cake, pressies and little parties and loads of tea and washing up.

2. I had a ‘quiet’ day with Reuben on Tuesday (which nearly killed me, as R doesn’t do quiet) and he’s also learnt to climb out his cot and hates bedtime. Fun times!

3. Then it’s been all over the place. From viewing 7 houses (this time last week we weren’t even considering moving) to being called into Metro Radio to be interviewed for this News Story, which was aired on Thursday. I’ve also been out twice this week (including to the Jules B A\W launch last night to get my #fblogger on)! Unheard of.

The List week 2 - quiet in the park

Blog Life

The highlight has to be being invited to Metro Radio to give my opinion because I was a parenting blogger. I tend to shy away from controversy but after some cajoling from Mike I was ready. It was incredibly exciting, I managed not to sound like a total idiot and my follow on article, here, sparked some really interesting conversations on twitter.


Katie and her incredible (and timely regarding the above) piece published on Mumsnet about emotional abuse.

Zaz always gets me thinking about parenting and looking after my cubs and this is her latest to strike a chord.

And Angie‘s got me pining for more time with my best pal!

This could be anything from 100 ways to cook an egg to the 30 best family days out to 5 steps to perfect eyebrows, the list goes on (pardon the pun!). It’s totally up to you, the post just needs to be in a list or bullet point format.
