Best in Blog - Monday Linky



Monday again. Monday.
Back-to-school Monday... yippee!

We survived the school holidays by the skin of our teeth, and this morning my offspring scooted off school. On their scooters. Wahoo! Miss fab has a new scooter (combining Grandma's Easter gift with a pocketmoney and a 40% off sale) and I am now freed from the early morning school run.

And Hot off the Press news... Scrag has graduated from his balance bike to a two wheeler in one easy step. Yaaaaay! He is so clever. Daddy fixed up Dash's old bike with a new tyre, removed the trainer wheels and on Scrag hopped... and off Scrag went. It's the balance bike I tell ya; they are brilliant. Scrag has such good balance and so much confidence, he was biking all afternoon with not even one fall. We are all so excited imaging family bike outings...



The Best of Me
Meanwhile I am here with the Best of Me from last week... which of course would have to be my Perfect Peter Pan Party. I promised how-to posts (with printables) and they will be coming, this week. Honest. As soon as I have recovered from it all.
I also enjoyed photographing my kids at the skatepark... and was surprised what we all learnt there.

The Best of You
Sometimes it's really hard to pick a favourite from the posts you link up.
So you know me... I'll pick three... or four...

A standout for me last week was my dear friend Leonie's heartfelt post Socially Intolerant... about the trials and realities of being a dairy/gluten/egg/sugar-free person in a dairy/gluten/egg/sugar-filled world. Whether you are living with food allergies or not, I recommend reading this post and the valuable insight Leonie gives us.

I also loved Meg's post showing off her framed vintage board-games-as-Art (they are awesome AND still playable) and A'Casarella's Laundry Room Art... loving all the arty inspiration!

Finally I just have to mention Neetz... who received her Lego set in the post and called me "a must-read blog"... *shucks*


How to join in with my "Best in Blog" linky.

The "Best in Blog" Linky opens at 7am every Monday (NZ time*) and closes midnight Friday.
You don't have to write a special post, or take a photo on a theme or anything that requires extra work...
All you have to do is pick your favourite post from the past week (the one you are most proud of) and share it with us. I will feature my favourites on next week's Best in Blog.

Just one thing you need to do before you link up... Can you please dress your post with this pretty button I've made so your readers can find our linky too?



Best in Blog
Thankyou kindly!

(Oh, and please leave us a comment telling us why you picked this one... even if it was because it was your only one, hahaha!)

*For some of you US readers, that will be sometime on Sunday!

I missed your last linky! I think I'll link up our week overview...a bit of crazy (not so) spring weather here :O I loved your Peter Pan party post & the skatepark...I actually enjoy ALL of your posts! I love the wisdom you teach your kids amongst real life experiences, and the amazing fun you create...and the real life among the mess. I completely relate! Hope you found some quiet moments for you today, being back-to-school day :) xx

I never get tired of reading your blogs. They're full of fun, love and laughter! Which makes me want to blog more! So I chose my one as it's the first one I've posted in nearly 2 months! Yikes! x

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your step by step instructions. I'm such a newbie to the blogging world and you have been such a great help already!
Cheers, Jeanie :D
PS. Have nominated my (JEANIE)"LOCKED OUT" post because it was both funny and true ... even at the time!
