I’m so happy to be passing on the baton to Amy! She’s such a wonderful, kind, supportive person – only the very best for the future of this linky and community of great bloggers.
#TheList was sort of my baby – 18 months ago I started it as #MumsList, a teeny tiny linky. Then we rebranded when Aby came on board as my cohost and her entrance transformed it into the mega linky it is now.
It would have died a death without Aby and I was finding it harder and harder to give #Thelist the attention it deserves, so I felt it only fair that I move aside.
I believe Amy’s entrance and ideas will help to breath new life into what is almost a veteran in the Linky field! Good luck my lovely friends and I will of course continue to link up as I love a good list…speaking of which, I plan to carry on doing My List each week, not least as a journaling exercise.
I literally don’t know what I do week to week if I haven’t written it down!
Welcome to The List! This is a blogging linky which I host with the gorgeous Aby from You Baby Me Mummy, all about lists! And we have some exciting news as this week The List is being sponsored by Zazzle, The Make Engine™. They have given us a £50 voucher to give to one of you lucky listers! Aby will use a random number generator to pick the winner next week. Good luck!
Zazzle want to help everyone to make whatever they can imagine. You can add personal touches to their products and they have sooooo many products to customise! More than you can shake a stick at, some might say. From cards to clothing to mugs, watch, business cards and wall art, they offer super high quality personalised products!

Saturday was Mumsnet’s Blogfest and I loved it! Although the majority of the speakers I saw weren’t bloggers (which was a bit odd for a blogging conference), they were awesome writers and I got so much inspiration and enjoyment from listening to their stories. I also had a blast with my blogging buddies.
I’ve had 3 hours of Ski lessons this week, so I’ve spent a lot of time in the car travelling to and from Sunderland – but it is so worth it. Look at that view!!
We have the contents of our utility room in our dining room – but it should all be worth it by next week..!
I am having the time of my life learning how to ski. I honestly feel like a little kid again and I even enjoyed falling over today. I know I’m doing it for work, but it doesn’t feel like it and it’s helping me put a few things into perspective…not to mention giving me lots of time to listen to podcasts on my drive over to Sunderland. Apparently doing something that requires you to get in the zone is also amazing for your creativity. We shall see but I certainly feel less stressy after an hour of it! You can see how I’m getting on here:
Speaking of Podcasts, I have loved the following…
Elizabeth Gilbert on The Lively Show, if you’re planning on quitting your day job anytime soon to follow a creative path, listen to this first!!
Amander Gummer on the Baby Toddler Me Show – a brand new podcast from our very own Fatima! I loved this show, Amander was great and Fatima was just a wonderful interviewer. I’m looking forward to listening to more of her shows. Do check her out and give her a high five for launching her show! Such an achievement, and she’s inspired me to crack on with mine…!
I am very sad to announce that after 64 weeks of #TheList I have decided that I can’t co-host any longer. I’ve had so much fun with and we both love this linky, but I’m ready to move on to other things. All the best to Aby and I will miss The List so much!
The happy news is that Aby’s new co-host will be Amy from Mr and Mrs T Plus Three, one of her best friends, and co-collaborator on a number of other projects. Amy can’t wait to get stuck in and her first week of #TheList will be 11th December.
I started out to write 10 fun things that have happened but as you’ll discover this is quite a lengthy post so I’ve settled on 8 things (not necessarily fun) that have happened over the last 2 years …they are as follows: We moved house Reuben started school We got MORE animals I got fatter, then […]
Well hello there! Welcome to my blog if you’re new here and if you’re a regular, welcome back! Today I thought I would reblog my Easy Pancake Recipe, which I first published here on the blog back in 2013 when Reuben was a mere year old. It’s been one of my most popular blogs, consistently […]
A year ago today I started a challenge; The castle challenge, where I aimed to see all the castles in Northumberland with Reuben and anyone else who cared to join us. Over the year, Reuben and I, and our motley crew of friends, family and people we didn’t know, visited over 40 castles. We saw […]
