Wow, March already! Hope you all enjoyed the extra day that came with the leap year! Here’s my March Bucket List which I’m linking to Twinderelmo’s Bucket List linky.

February?was exciting because, I ran my first?competition for a Letterbox Cake from Baker Days – the competition is now finished, but check out my review of their cakes, as they’re yummy and great for presents ? Review of Baker Days Letter Box Cake & Giveaway!!
My most viewed?posts in February:

 

I also want to mention my post Why would you not vaccinate your baby??which I wrote in January. It has continued to see brilliant traffic and amazing comments. Given the recent publicity around Meningitis B and the short supply of its vaccine privately, it appears everyone has suddenly become more pro-vaccine!! I may choose to write about the Meningitis vaccine but at the moment, I feel so strongly, I need to finish the research I’m doing and make sure I’m happy with what I write… so I might write about it in March, but maybe not. There are several reasons: My daughter was born at the end of November 2014, and so missed out on the NHS jag. When the jag started being implemented H was 8 months old, still well under a year, and so I wish we’d stuck to our original plan to privately vaccinate her when she was a few months old. Instead, we believed there would be a proper catch up and didn’t.?Anyway, I know my vaccination post hit a chord with so many of you so?please keep sharing to raise awareness for the NHS Childhood Vaccination scheme as a very basic start – help heard immunity work to protect all our little ones!

 

Featured and guest posts:

I’ve been featured on Mum Muddling Through’s blog in her #CoolMumClub #MeetTheMembers guest post series! Check it out over on her blog. As Sarah will say I’ve been writing that post for a couple of months and kept re-writing, it was hard writing about myself and I just wasn’t happy!

And, just at the end of February, on Wicked Wednesdays on the fab Brummy Mummy of Two’s blog – check out my post here and her #WickedWednesdays linky here.

 

My #BehindTheLinky guest post series:

I finally launched my?Guest Post series: #BehindTheLinky! I was SO excited by this and big thanks to the lovely Mum Muddling Through, Sarah, host of #coolmumclub, for being my?first guest poster- you know you want to be cool too and?check it out??

    That’s great, it sounds like you’re really smashing all your targets! I need to do this really. Mind you, I have so many things going on, I think looking at it all would make me cry! πŸ˜€ Like the idea of your ‘behind the linky’ posts. I always thought linky hosts had to be massive serious bloggers…until I became one! ;)Thanks so much for linking up with us! #bigpinklink

    Sounds like you are doing really well and thanks for all the linkys – I’m new to this linky thing so there is loads for me to try.
    I was shocked when I took my new baby to be vaccinated against Men B last week to hear that you couldn’t even get it done privately if you had just missed out. That just isn’t fair. Interested to read your opinions so I will definitely be checking out your vaccination blog – Thanks! x
