Ooh, is that a christmas scented candle I can smell, or is it just beginning to look alot like Christmas here in the blogosphere?! Even more so now all the festive gift guides are ringing in, and the Chrimbo job has officially been unwrapped here at #coolmumclub HQ! So bear with on the old retweets, reading etcetera whilst I find my way out of a giant pile of tinsel…
Aside from my two linked posts this week, if you’re in the vicinity of London this Chrimbo, don’t miss a special festive giveaway comp running right now – to win a family set of 4 Disney On Ice tickets for 21-30 December at the 02. Open now folks!
My first linked post this week is an honest and open post about my experiences with a breast lump recently – and a heartfelt plea to anyone putting off getting one checked out, or hiding from the dreaded smear callback letter, or anything else along those lines – and you know exactly what I’m talking about here. Read on and share, because if bloggers really do have influence, this is one thing worth influencing about…
My second linked post is a little gift guide of my own – specifically one in honour of some of the small businesses I’ve fallen in love with right here on t’internet. Buying from them is like giving two gifts, so what better reason to think outside the giant super chain box this December.
Talyas fave last week was The grapes of wrath – by The Mum Conundrum – A hilarious post about ‘all the weird shit that happens after you have a baby’…A total classic!
And my post of the week award goes to Nat Crummy Mummy with ‘Type 1 Diabetes and us’. Turns out misery guts is a pretty cool dad… this post is a total eye opener into Type 1 diabetes and just how exactly it affects a family. Good luck with the run misery guts, we are all right behind you, well, from our sofas anyway.
As always, I’ll be pinning everything I read over (as well as the weekly best bits) on our #coolmumclub pinterest boards, so be sure to head over to my pinterest page to check out the highlights by topic, and join in with the #CoolMumClub collective parenting board.
Remember – I’ll be laying low juggling all the Chrimbo / blog / work / kids this week, but I’ll keep up as and when I can!
