May Your Mondays Be Marvellous #53 - New parenting & lifestyle blogger linky
Happy December, folks!

Emily, Fran and I have decided to have a little break over Christmas and so this will be our final Marvellous Mondays link-up of 2016. It's been fab seeing all of your posts every week, the highlight for us was Fran coming onboard as a co-host and also hitting the 100 linkers mark a couple of weeks ago, what an amazing way to end 2016. We will be back on the 9th January 2017.

We hope you'll join us in the New Year for the start of another year of Marvellous Mondays. We will of course remind you in January, so if you aren't already on our newsletter or Twitter reminder list, please let one of us know and we'll add you on to it so you don't miss out.

Marvellous Mondays is a place bloggers can come to share all of their best posts of the week and somewhere we can all rally together to beat the Monday blues. Hosted by myself (Kaye) and the fabulous Emily of My Petit Canard & Fran of Back with a Bump, we'll be reading, commenting and sharing all of your wonderful posts.


This week's top commenter is, once again, the lovely—

Fiona of Coombe Mill

—who left an amazing number of comments. Thankyou Fiona for leaving a record number of comments on #MarvMondays posts over the past year! Fiona was closely followed by the lovely The Aloha Mummy.

Featured Posts

Emily's featured post this week is Parenting Through The Good Days and The Bad from Mum Muddling Through who wrote a great post about how as parents we all have good and bad parenting days. Those days when it is a real struggle just to get through the day and others where everything is going our way and we’re practically feeling like Superwoman/man. But that whichever way it’s going, its important to be honest with ourselves and each other as parents about those moments where we struggle as well as those that we want to celebrate, because in doing so we help and build each other up.

Fran's featured post this week is Fi of Beauty, Baby & Me who shared a fabulous piece of positivity with Monday Motivation Everything Happens For A Reason. Life often hands us lemons, but there’s no point dwelling, slice them up, and stick them in a gin and tonic and suck it up.
