Share the Joy link up #15
Can your real and virtual lives collide happily?
Last week I was so excited to host Tinuke and her lovely daughter Princess from Circus Mums and Kinkdred Spirit over at The Barn. We’ve only met a couple of times in person but, like many bloggers, we chat almost daily online and share a love of travel having both spent some time living in China.
Having been an anonymous blogger for a while before I ‘came out’ it surprised me at first how easily my real and virutal lives collided – friendships made online actually can transfer to your offline life – and it was so lovely to sit and chat over endless coffee and croissants while our two mini-mes played.
So with Britmums Live just around the corner and more than a few newbie bloggers getting a bit trembly about attending, I want to say to them – don’t worry! We’ve all been there, wondering how our real and virutal lives will come together and, believe me, it can be the most joyful of collisions.
Right, on to the link up!
Thank you so much to everyone that joined in last week – the most link ups so far! I’m loving reading all your joyful posts and I hope that sharing the joy brightens your day too.
Don’t forget that all genres are welcome here – new posts or old favourites. Posts that might have made you laugh out loud, opened your heart, raised your spirits or just made you smile!
Sharing my joy
Each week, I’ll pick a favorite post and feature it on the following week’s Share the Joy link up (I’ve also made a where you’ll find all my favorites in one place).
Last week one of the last posts to link up was a fab one from Jen at new find Syblings.com – Comparing myself to the radiant woman. I loved this so much and it raises some interesting questions about comparing ourselves to others which an have a profound effect on our happiness.
This week I’m sharing a guest post from Annabel Woolmer with some fab advice about how you can apply cooking fun to your children’s schema and a delicious afternoon tea that my Mother and I shared at the wonderful Lancaster London hotel last weekend – I thoroughly recommend it for some decadent me-time!
