Quotes Linky: Candid Cuddles 82

Candid Cuddles 73 quotes linky featured image

WELCOME, WILLKOMMEN, BIENVENUE, BIENVENIDO (I also looked it up in Japanese but it was way too hard) TO CANDID CUDDLES 82!

 

Right so you’ve got little old me hosting solo again this week while my lovely partner Becky is busy with some things on the family front.

Firstly apologies for the impromptu linky pause last week just one week after we came back from the Easter break! We both realised it was a public holiday perhaps a bit too late and decided it was marginally more fun to spend time with our families instead of blogging. Hope you didn’t mind too much!

 

OUR FEATURED CANDID CUDDLES POST FROM THE PREVIOUS LINK UP IS…

The hilarious Tragic Life of a Writer by our resident comedienne Heather. Well done that girl.

 

MY LINKED POST THIS WEEK!

So when I started hosting this lovely little linky with Becky, I thought it ONLY involved quotes that were about positivity/inspiration etc. Turns out – as you may have gleaned from my most recent linked posts such as Wines for Parents or the Things we Shouldn’t Say to our Kids (which reminds me my kids have in fact got slower at putting their shoes on since I wrote that post) that the positive quotes thing is in fact not the case! Candid Cuddles is very much about ANY type of quote (well as long as it’s not offensive!).  [Mental note to self: pay attention next time I start hosting a linky.]

Now, since sarcasm is my first language the highest form of wit (thank goodness Oscar Wilde isn’t alive because I’d have such an argument with him about his opposite view if he was), I have a lot of posts featuring this particular ‘dialect’…including my linked post for this week. About slugs. Oops, I meant eyebrows. What’s my point? Well, if you’re wondering where the ‘quotes’ connection is….you’ll see the post has quite a few erm ‘quotes’ (just not ‘real’ ones ba ha haaa 🙂 )

Quotes Linky: Candid Cuddles 81

Candid Cuddles 73 quotes linky featured image

I’m Baaaaaaaaack and ready to rock ad roll for Candid Cuddles 81!

Hulloooo! Did you miss me? Please say yes!  I’m slowly trying to re-engage my blog brain after two weeks off. It may have been a break from the blog but there was certainly no rest involved! I was in the UK for my brother’s big fat Indian wedding, which you may have seen pics of on my Instagram…if not, go take a peek here!.

Here are just a few of my personal faves (so hard as there are just too many good ones to choose from) and yes, I’m hoping to write a blog post about it at some stage:

Not having had a traditional Indian wedding myself – and going out of my way to avoid Indian weddings for years as I had such bad memories of the ones I attended as a youngster – I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. Nevertheless, I rolled up my sleeves where I could and got stuck in to help mum with the numerous events on the agenda for this one. Five events took place, for which outfits needed sorting for the whole family and of course there were the various rituals which were all new even to my Indian eyes! I kept joking towards the final few days – during which I was lucky enough to have a whole 45 minutes sleep one night – that I’d sleep for a week once I got back to Malta. Let’s just say, I’ve had a good crack at that since returning!

Now, it’s back to business.

Welcome to Candid Cuddles 72 folks

I don’t know how I’m already writing this post when it feels like I only just wrote last week’s. The week’s are flying by. Thanks so much to you superstar linkers from last week. I loved all the ones on my ‘rosta’ of reading but my fave was Madeline’s with A Note on Kindness which totally echoed something I’ve been saying for a while now! Becky’s was by the lovely Sarah of Blind Intuition with a post about being Fed Up With Your Toddler!

THE QUOTES LINKY: CANDID CUDDLES 70

Welcome to Candid Cuddles 70

Thanks so much to our Candid Cuddlers of last week. I loved the mixture of moving, practical and funny linked posts! Mummy and the Mexicans had some great goal-setting tips and What my Fridge Says made me laugh and inspired me to have a better attitude towards housework (although I’m still going to avoid ironing ha ha).  My fave was from Jaki Jelz; her post about people’s behaviour sometimes being down to jealousy and the lovely words to help deal with it really spoke to me and reminded me of incidents in my own life.

The Quotes Linky: #CandidCuddles 68

Candid Cuddles quotes linky featured image

Happy New Year and welcome to Candid Cuddles 68, the first one of 2017! 

So did you have a good one? Did you rest or did your rush about like a mad thing? Did you eat and eat and drink and drink or go easy? Ours was even quieter this year and I kind of feel like I need a second Christmas because I didn’t do this one ‘right’ . I slept even more than I usually do (to the point where my kids must have thought I’d gone into hibernation) and as is our usual habit, watched a lot of films (although it’s got to the point where we can’t watch that many festive films as we know every single line to every single one).

Although it’s got nothing to do with the inspirational theme of Candid Cuddles, talking of the festive season that is now behind us, thought you might relate to this:

Hello and welcome to Candid Cuddles 66 the feel good, inspiring, thought-provoking linky that I co-host with Becky of Cuddle Fairy! 

We’ve got just this and next week’s linky to go before taking a break for Christmas and I don’t mind admitting I’m super excited about taking a break (although I already know I find it impossible to avoid social media or blogging totally).

Our Picks From Last Week

My fave was from Jaki Jelz with Don’t Forget Your Worth.  For me this post was incredibly timely both from a personal and professional perspective.  Personally, I have a friend who’s made me feel a bit crap about myself (and yes I know I need to pay attention to my own advice from a previous #candidcuddles post about one’s reaction to situations, in order to not feel upset by this friend!). On the professional front – and this is one many bloggers will relate to – I’ve been wondering what the way forward is with regards to writing for other sites and not being paid (because apparently mere exposure is meant to be remuneration enough). Don’t forget your worth struck a chord.

Our Picks From Last Week

My fave was from Debs of My Random Musings The Magic Won’t Happen unless you Wave your Wand, The timing of this post was rather apt. The day Candid Cuddles 64 goes out is my third blogiversary whoop whoop!  I’ve been thinking a lot of late about what I want out of blogging and what direction I’m going to take things in 2017. Whatever I choose to do,whatever it is I want to achieve, it won’t happen unless I wave my Absolutely Prabulous wand!

Becky’s favourite was Fi’s of Beauty, Baby and Me with Be Proud of Who You Are.which does what is says on the tin really!

The Quotes Linky Candid Cuddles 63

Candid Cuddles quotes linky featured image

Hulloooo, Candid Cuddlers, I’m back! Did you miss me? Of course you did, how could you not?!  Seriously, my sincere apologies for not being able to do my full duties as Candid Cuddles host.  As Becky explained previously, I was changing web hosts.  That’s the short polite version; fact is that before even changing hosts, I was having all sorts of brain-ache inducing tech issues…oh the fun I had…  However, lovely linkers, I read your posts and commented/tweeted when I could. I say ‘when I could’ because in addition to having issues with my actual site, I also had the incredible joy of our home internet connection deciding that it didn’t really want to do the erm ‘connection’ bit.  Anyway, enough of the pity party; the main thing is I’m back and ready to be all candid and cuddly with you!  A big thank you to my superstar Candid Cuddles partner Becky for holding the fort and hosting solo for two weeks.

In fact, Becky’s sensible reassurances and kind attitude during my IT breakdown (and I don’t just mean my technology broke down, I mean I almost broke down over the IT issues ha ha) are in fact the inspiration behind my linked quote for Candid Cuddles 63.  Go see!

The Candid Cuddles quote linky is about being creative, sharing a message/personal insight. Posts with any type of quote are welcome to link up.

The quote can be typed or a graphic. The quote can be inspirational, motivational, funny, sarcastic or anything else you like.  If you are new to Candid Cuddles & need any help linking up, you can read Becky’s Linky Guide or tweet either of us at @AbPrabulous / @CuddleFairy.

Our Picks From Last Week Are

Michelle of Rockin Random Mom who wrote about restoring the American spirit and passing it down to the next generation. It’s obviously a timely post given the recent utterly incredible election that took place in her country.  To be honest, as a person whose own homeland went through possibly its biggest ‘test’ so far in the form of Brexit, the whole issues of patriotism, nationalism and frankly basic human decency have been burning topics for a while now.  I have a feeling Michelle and I would be able to spend a lot of time discussing this one day! Becky picked Madeline’s The One Thing That You Have over on This Glorious Life and I must say I am so glad I checked this one out (despite Becky and I dividing up our linky duties) because it is an absolute gem, the timing of which couldn’t have been better. I MUST remind myself of this on my low blog mojo days.

My Favourite Quote of Last Week

came from the lovely Ursula of Mumbelievable (I’m still envious of that amazing blog name months after discovering her) with this cute and inspiring message about parents being superheroes/legends for the gargantuan role we fulfil.  This is a meme from her Facebook page as opposed to a full post but hey ho, I love philosophy of it which is what Candid Cuddles is all about after all.  Becky’s fave was Angela’s from The Inspiration Edit a gorgeous post about self love and self belief particularly focussing on our obsession with physical beauty, an issue close to my heart as the mother of two girls.

Thanks so much to those of you who linked last week; how lovely to have your support as Becky and I gave the linky its first Autumn outing.  In case you missed it, I now co-host this lovely quotes linky which relaunched last week after the summer break.  The Candid Cuddles linky now runs every Monday evening.  I think it’s a great way to set yourself up properly for the week ahead because of the inspiring, motivational, thought-provoking or just downright funny words that people share!  Now here we are at Candid Cuddles 59.

 

The Candid Cuddles quote linky is about being creative, sharing a message/personal insight. Posts with any type of quote are welcome to link up.

The quote can be typed or a graphic. The quote can be inspirational, motivational, funny, sarcastic or anything else you like.  If you are new to Candid Cuddles & need any help linking up, you can read Becky’s Linky Guide or tweet either of us at @AbPrabulous / @CuddleFairy.

 

My Favourite Post of Last Week

came from the lovely Annette of 3 Little Buttons who is also Becky’s fave too.  Her post about how Blogging is Like Sailing on the Ocean honestly blew me away and I don’t know how to adequately describe how much this post resonated with me.  i’m sure many people can relate to Annette’s view of blogging; the highs, the lows, the rewards, the relationships, the everything.  The line about little dinghy’s and established battle ships…oh my goodness…writing heaven.  I do so love Annette’s writing style the more I read her.

I’d also like to tip my hat to another post that got under my skin which was the intense account of a wedding day gone horribly wrong by Petite Library.  By the time I finished reading this post, I almost needed to pour myself a stiff drink (alright I admit I don’t usually need much of an excuse) as the words she uses are filled with such emotion and she does such a great job of taking the reader with her (well this reader for sure anyway) describing how this most important of days simply disintegrated in the worst way.

Meet Your New Candid Cuddles Linky Co-Host!

candid-cuddles-feature-image-web-version

Aaaaah, I haven’t stopped grinning the last few days.  Why?  Well, you’re looking at the new co-host of one of the most feel good linkies out there, the Candid  Cuddles quotes linky!  Woohooo!

Sorry, I hope I didn’t take your ears off but I am a tad excited as you can probably tell from the liberal use of exclamation marks too.  I mean, it only took me sending a huge floral bouquet, a champagne hamper and several nagging texts to convince Becky to take me on. (I jest.)

If You Are Not Familiar with #CandidCuddles:

It was created by Cuddle Fairy and is a great vehicle for sharing quotes that have inspired/amused/moved you.  You can just type the quote in your post or share a graphic and explain why the quote resonates with you.

I’ll publish more details including the badge/linky rules in a few days.
In the meantime, make a date in your diary: Monday 10th October, 7pm GMT.

Up til now Candid Cuddles has been hosted solo by Becky. But as we know only too well, blog life is a busy life, mum life is even busier and there are only so many hours in a week to do both and manage the odd cup of tea!  Frankly with another linky, #BloggerClubUK, on her weekly agenda as well, I don’t know how Becky does it.  I have nothing but the greatest respect for her and it’s an absolute pleasure to join her on this lovely linky which is now back after the summer break.

 

If You Are familiar with Candid Cuddles but Are New Here:

Welcome! Where on earth have you beeeeeeen all this time? Pull up a chair, make yourself at home, stay for a while, read for a while and er…of course, most importantly link up to Candid Cuddles when it goes live Monday 10th October 🙂

To give you a bit of background, I launched this blog almost three years after realising there had to be life beyond packed lunches and maths homework. It’s a very different kind of blog from Cuddle Fairy’s, if I’m honest. Where Becky exudes positivity and is bursting with helpful tips on everything from blogging to baking, I exude sarcasm and am bursting with stories of inept parenting (although to be fair I do also go quite serious from time to time)

Finally, if You Already Know Me and My Blog:

You can stop laughing. Ahem. Just because I have a reputation for being silly and/or having a bit of a moan, that doesn’t mean I don’t love a positive or thought-provoking quote from time to time, you cheeky thing. In fact, I’m such a sucker for a good quote that when I first linked up to Candid Cuddles, I couldn’t pick one single quote and sort of gate-crashed with a whole bunch:

40-life-lessons-for-my-kids

 

I think that just about covers things for the time being.

Come and Join Us on Mondays for Some #CandidCuddles starting 10th October.

We’d love to know if you have a life mantra, if you’ve seen a quote that has struck a chord or seen an image that has made you laugh/think.

Hope to see you then!

I’m Helping Agent Spitback to Pass the Sauce!

Pass The Sauce linky featured image

Tapping of fork on side of the glass, lowering of microphone stand (#BecauseShortarse and while we’re at it can someone go get me my kids’ step stool?), trumpet fanfare in distance, drumroll, etc aaaaaaaaand clears throat:

Ladies and genitalmens (sorry juvenile joke from my university years and a hard one to kick), I am simply spiffingly delighted and over the moon to tell you that this week and next, I’m co-hosting the fantabulous new linky Pass the Sauce run by the incomparable Agent Spitback.  Watch this space – well actually don’t just watch it, link up! – as I’m sure she’s onto a winner with this.

According to Agent Spitback, like all things good in life, we always need a bit of sauce..tomato, barbecue, chocolate, caramel, hot chilli…frankly I thought it meant something else but that’s just me.  Pass The Sauce will keep the spirit of #abitofeverything which El used to host with the Anxious Dragon. That linky has ended but as a little bit of sauce goes with a bit of everything, this linky (like its predecessor), will continue to welcome all sorts of posts, from crafts, reviews, rants, DIY, parenting, stories, poetry, humour, just about anything and everything.  It’s all about spreading the #bloggerlove.  As opposed to having a regular co-host, El will be running Pass the Sauce with a new guest co-host every two weeks.

Most of you know the score and general common sense rules:

Please link up ONE post, old or new.

They can be on any subject except giveaways.

Please use the linky badge below on the post you link up.

Please comment on the Host post, the Guest Co-Host and the post before yours and of course any others of your choice. Share the blogging love peeps!

(If you do not put the below badge on your post or comment, you will not be eligible in being featured…host’s rules, don’t shoot the messenger!)

The linky will run from 11am (GMT) Tuesday to 10am Thursday.

If you link up, you are agreeing to be notified of future link ups.

And of course tweet your linkup using the hashtag #PassTheSauce and both our Twitter handles @abprabulous and @agentspitback.  We’ll share any that are tweeted.

As Agent Spitback says so beautifully, it is not about the linky, it is all about the community. You can’t blog alone!

The Agent is most wise…

The all important linky badge!

# BabyBrainMonday 16

It’s Monday (yuck) but BabyBrainMonday is back (yay!). Did you miss us? It’s a been a good few weeks off. I needed to spend time with my kiddos for half term which was lovely and relaxed; no major plans…just trekked along the rocky coastline where we live and met up with friends and did play dates. Harps meanwhile was sunning herself on her exotic Bali getaway (where the beaches are marginally nicer than ‘my’ Maltese ones ha ha). But now we’re back and ready to blog and roll.

The weekly theme of BabyBrainMonday is a general linky which welcomes you to share any posts you have, be they new or old. We all have old favourite posts as well as newer material that may not have gained the visibility we’d hoped for. So whatever the post content, dig deep, link up and share the love!

memory

We are looking for posts from all bloggers – parent bloggers, beauty bloggers, food bloggers, fashion bloggers, travel bloggers, vloggers and bloggers. Diversity is fab! For vloggers you can link your videos directly from YouTube.

The linky will run from Monday 6 PM GMT till Wednesday 11 PM GMT.

Please can you familiarise yourselves with the rules below. We have had a few instances of people linking up several consecutive posts but not sharing the linky love by including the #BabyBrainMonday badge nor commenting on any of the other posts nor tweeting. We know life is super busy and sometimes you can’t see to it at the moment of linking up (heck I’ve been there!) but repeat offending is a bit of a downer and doesn’t help anyone. So please use your blogger conscience as we’d like everyone to benefit from #BabyBrainMonday, linkers and hosts alike!

Trista over at Domesticated Momster has written this fab post on linky etiquette.

And here are our basic #BabyBrainMonday rules:
1. Add the badge to your post by copying the below code. The linky works as a mutual benefit so please don’t forget to include it.

Absolutely Prabulous

2. Link your post click by clicking on the inlinkz button below and copy and paste your post when prompted and follow the instructions. Please feel free to link as many posts as you wish. Share your post via twitter, be sure to tweet us (@babybrainmemoir and @absolutelyprabulous) as many times as you wish, using #BabyBrainMonday and we will be sure to retweet 🙂

3. Comment on the HOST posts and two other posts per link up. Also tweet about the posts you comment on to share the blogger love! We’ll be sure to retweet your posts and share your content. 🙂 You can also find me on Facebook and Instagram. Happy linking everyone!x

If you are not sure how to link up, Cuddle Fairy has written this guide to linkies.

Right, hope to see you on here and happy linking!

wineandboobs linky June 9th

So a couple of weeks ago I lost my linky virginity to Modern Dad Pages on the awesomely titled linky #wineandboobs.

And since then I’ve done it again and again. In front of everybody. Addicted. Apparently that’s what happens when a blogger loses their linky virginity. We can’t stop. So I’m beyond excited and delighted to have been asked to co-host this week’s wineandboobs linky! Well I love wine and I have boobs so ya know… The theme of this linky is the same each week. Just link your favourite post up! It can be an old or new post and believe me you don’t want to miss out on this because #wineandboobs is just getting bigger and better each week! 🙂 A big thank you from Moderndadpages by the way for linking up with him each week. You make his week and the posts are all so great to read.
