The Saturday session #59

Welcome to our very last #thesatsesh of 2018. Myself and my cohost Hayley have decided to take our own mindful, present and positive advice and step away for the Christmas period. I will still blog weekly (my brain needs the therapy) so feel free to drop in but many of our linky regulars are hobby bloggers and we didn’t feel there would be a demand worthy of taking our eyes off our ever growing little people. They really do grow fast and the magic of such a time of year is something I want to soak up while I can (the children not the bloggers).

This leads me on effortlessly to my featured blogger this week; Mummy here and there. Sam is an honest and loyal mummy who puts pen to paper ( brain to keyboard) to give us little insights in to her world as a Mum and much more. This week Sam wrote about self care activities for December, here’s a link to all of her wonderful ideas. I can say enough how much I personally love this time of year but am also hugely aware that many families find this period of time hard financially, emotionally and well…just hard. I’m always astonished at how a small amount of ‘me time’ can have such a huge effect on my mental wellbeing and in turn the people around me. Therefore picking this post was a no brainer.

Hayley as always has also selected her featured blogger and you can click here to see who she has selected (it’s a good one).

So, before you link up I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has joined us over the year. I’ve learnt so much from the linky, read so many talented pieces and truly wish you all a wonderful new year.

The Saturday session #56

I like the number 56, it has a charm about it.

This week was a little calmer, although Black Friday once again reminds me that consumer Christmas is just around the corner. I will indulge little dude with a splash of what he has asked for from his list, but as far as everyone else goes – its experiences and memories this year. That means I’ve booked afternoon teas, theatre tickets, experiences and much more for the family. I just feel thats the essence of Christmas and family, even if I can’t always wrap it in a bow.

Hayley my cohost always selects a featured blogger from our wonderful selection of #thesatsesh writers, you can click here to see who she has picked this week – however I urge you to stay here and read all about Invisibility by the talented and clearly lovely Lisa. She is my talented featured blogger this week (grab yourself a badge from my sidebar hun) As always there is a humour in her words, but also an honest truth and an open heart as she reveals some truths about the location in which she met her partner and a hidden truth they carry. I was blown away with both the depth of her posts revelations but also the advice she gives that we can all be aware of over the festive season…if you never read another post, read one of mine, ops I mean – read this post. Seriously, just when I thought I couldn’t been anymore blown away by Lisa – this post takes her words and wisdom to new levels.

The Saturday Session #55

Thank you for joining us for week fifty five of #thesatsesh, feel free to use the hashtag on social media to promote what you are up to this weekend. I’m being rather exotic on Saturday mixing watching my son at Judo with a haircut for him in the afternoon – don’t be jealous.  I won’t type Sundays cleaning plans, they may make you feel inadequate about the lack of thrill in your own life.

As always you can see who Hayley has picked as her featured blogger (click here), or you can read about my choice. Kelly from Day dreams of a Mum who wrote a superb blog all about the little wins of life and so it was easy to pick my featured blogger. I loved the post because I do believe that whilst we all strive for the mountain tops of life, we often miss the view along the way. It also highlighted to me that individuals have different challenges to others, that what I may consider effortless another may find a struggle or unattainable. I’m also a huge fan of celebrating and think that there are so many wins in life if we choose to celebrate them. Tonight, I am certainly going to raise a glass to Kelly and her list of wins. Its a post that I think we can all grow and blossom from.

If you’d like to join us for all the fives, then read the rules below, click the blue box at the end of this post and read some awesome posts from a variety of talented bloggers. I’d also like to thank everyone who joined us last week, I really enjoyed reading your work.

The Saturday session #54

Welcome to another #thesatsesh blog, thanks for joining us and i’d like to take the opportunity wish you an awesome week ahead. I’m personally trying to keep November very present and calm. I’ve already seen the Christmas decorations in the shops and I refuse to have the last 60 days of the year swept up in a sea of tinsel. I’m making the most of what November has to offer…so far traffic jams, pumpkins and late nights at work…ooo and sparklers. I guess like most months the good and the bad.

As always my cohost Hayley has picked a featured blogger (click here to see who it is) or keep reading and see who I selected. This week Isabel from ‘Sustainable responsible living’ caught my eye, her post lit up the linky…(too corny? even for me) Okay, she wrote a post all about ‘being a lighthouse for others’ – a metaphor I adored. Reaching out and creating a positive and conscious life it what my life it all about, obviously I’m still in training pants, but its something I strive from. If your new to Isabel’s blog then its certainly worth a read, she solves environmental issues in a compassionate and kind manner – whats not to love! She is also not too hippy and operates in the real world so her results are achievable. This week I listened to a podcast that has shown me I need to stop eating meat, I’ve made little nudges to it, but I know in the next few months this is a goal I personally need to strive for. Gosh, being kind is exhausting! One thing that isn’t is Isabel’s view of the world #inspiring

Many thanks if you are rejoining us, new and shiny or just using us to read some awesome blogs. Blogger’s click the link below to start the party….or just click and read (I personally recommend a cup of tea to accompany)

The Saturday session #49

Happy weekend all, this week saw my Uncle get hitched and I was gifted a wonderful yoga session. I met up with friends and finished with a GnT and a take away pizza – call me classy. I hope the week has been kind to you also.

Hayley my lovely cohost has elected her featured blogger, so feel free to check it out here or read on to find out that my gorgeous featured blogger is the stunning Mummy Wales who gave us all eight great ways to get kids engaged in nature. Making time to get outside every weekend is something we prioritise, I loved her enthusiasm for county shows – Okay, she mentioned gin and cows eyelashes, but lets be honest both of those things are delightful. This post reminded me of my own values and I made time to take the little dude on a midweek welly walk (before the nights draw in) we collected some conkers and pretty leaves. So thank you to Mummy Wales for an authentic and joyful post, please collect a featured badge from my side bar.

The Saturday session #46

Right, you know when linky people like myself write things like ‘oh it was so hard to pick someone this week’…well I just literally read each one thinking ‘this will be my featured blogger, oh no…this will’ so frankly week 45 was a triumphant selection of gorgeous posts, from self care to putting your phones away, Bernies crazy welsh life…I loved them all. If you partook in the joyous linky – thank you, it relighted my fire of reading blogs.

However, I love learning and Dave from dads-turn nailed the balance between research (facts) and opinions (he’s heart and soul) and is my featured blogger this week (*grab a badge from my side bar Dave). Please click the link above if you haven’t read it, it was all about baby bonding. I just asked my Mr about the initial bonding and he said “it was all good” which isn’t quite the details account you get from Dave’s blog and probably why the Mr doesn’t have a blog himself.

You can also click here to see who Hayley my lovely cohost picked.
