#coolmumclub Linky week 39

Okay, so I need to start with an apology…those slick, die hard, early bird #coolmumclubbers may have noticed a couple of technical hitches in the last 2 weeks..wrong code added, and turned out my subscription to inlinkz had expired…which means a) Must try harder and , more importantly, b) HAPPY BIRTHDAY #COOLMUMCLUB!!

Who knew, a whole YEAR has passed us by since those first sketchy days. Some of you have been here the whole damn journey, and some of you we picked up along the way. So, please raise your glass / mug and join me and Talya in saying happy damn birthday to #coolmumclub. I’m one proud Mama xx

CAFFEINE & CAKE fighting CANCER #BloggersBeatingCancer

Every year the signature green and white envelope arrives, and I know what it is before I open it. An invitation to host another Macmillan coffee morning, having done one in 3 of the past 4 years. Each year I umm and ahh, deliberate the hows, whens and who’s, and ultimately, decide to go for it. more “CAFFEINE & CAKE fighting CANCER #BloggersBeatingCancer”

Mum went to the shops and bought…

Long car journeys as a kid were pretty different to those nowadays. Not so much focused on portable DVD players and tablets stocked with downloaded movies and games, a bit more reliant on long winded word association games and i-Spy books which made you feel travel sick if you looked at them too long. more “Mum went to the shops and bought…”

Me without tea: Going H2only with @RNLI

Fancy a cuppa? Pop the kettle on. Let’s meet for a brew. I need Coffee. These phrases are part of my every day vocabulary and are statements I’ve forsaken for 10 days in support of the RNLI H2only campaign. It’s a fairly simple challenge: No tea, coffee, booze, juice, fizz or squash for ten days. Yet the last thing it feels right now is easy… more “Me without tea: Going H2only with @RNLI”

Toys to buy kids of parents you hate

Okay so maybe hate is a bit strong, but it’s a dog eat dog world out there on the Mum circuit. If you find yourself on the receiving end of some less than sisterly behaviour, don’t get mad…get even. Kill ’em with kindness in the form of some revenge gifting. Take that mother down with a smile and a gift bag containing a whole world of pain… more “Toys to buy kids of parents you hate”

#coolmumclub: Meet the members…One Messy Mama

Hey gang,

Back for another #FF treat from the #coolmumclub – time to meet this week’s member, Jaqui aka One Messy Mama. I loved reading Jaqui’s submission – she’s so spot on about all that’s good about blogging, and seems like a totally sound chick; the kind of Mum I’d like to bump into on the Mum-circuit.

#coolmumclub Linky week 37

It’s so good to be back in the thick of #coolmumclub. Last week was a little post-Summer reunion and your linked posts were like a mid-week catch up with friends over a vino in the local pub. Well, sot of, just without the vino. Or pub.

If you’re new to #coolmumclub, welcome! This is a hangout for parents looking to read posts, articles, poems and guides about everything parenty, with a little bit of an edgy side. Stay a while, say hello and share the love using the #coolmumclub hashtag on social media.
