May already, and yes it’s the 6th and so we’re almost a month into May…. oooops, but hopefully this is better than nothing!

Here’s my May’s?Bucket List which I’m linking to Twinderelmo’s Bucket List linky.


My most viewed?posts in March:


My #BehindTheLinky guest post series:

The next #BehindTheLinky will be live really soon…. so keep an eye out! I’ll add the link here as soon as it’s live!



I loved reviewing the?brilliant Bake Box 1?and am looking forward to hearing what you think of the second box I’m reviewing – being published next week.


Stats for April:

  • Twitter: just over 4.5k (up from just over 4k)- AMAZED!
  • Facebook: ?163 likes (up from 121) -?oooooh I’m impressed with this jump 🙂
  • Instagram: 560?followers (up from 460)
  • Pinterest: ?117 followers (up from 111) – I haven’t worked on this at all, or used it much apart for an odd occasion (when I realised it was month end lol)
  • Tots100 – 446?at the start of April… I was SO happy to make the Top 500!! Thank you everyone who reads! Now, I hope I stay in it based on my April stats…??
  • I also reached 189 in the Parent Blogger Club leaderboard which is published weekly. So very happy to be in the top 200 🙂


How did I do with my previous?Bucket Lists?

  1. Finally publish my favourite linkys page – STILL TO DO!
  2. Keep growing my social media following. – Continue, especially Facebook and Instagram?
  3. Keep growing #TheBabyFormula linky (if you haven’t linked up, please check it out – numbered lists, reviews (eg 100% or 8/10 ratings), or funny formulas just include a + or =, or write about a birthday or 10 things about me – Keep going, I love the community and we’ve had the most linkups this week – SO many FAB blogs :-)?
  4. Blog redesign – I’ve been researching and trying new themes since Christmas, so I’d like to get it all sorted in March. –?done!! I love it! What do you think? (I just need to sort the instagram feed at the bottom… but I’m a bit stuck on it!)?
  5. Reviews: if you check out my review page you’ll see a list at the bottom… most are half written, I should do something about that. – Nope I haven’t touched them!


May’s Bucket List:

  • See all above points I’ve not yet done!
  • Finish recategorising all my posts as my categories are all over the place
  • Write some fab review posts
  • Write a post for Cuddle Fairy‘s Happiness Guest Post Series.
  • I’ll keep working on?Facebook?.… I have a feeling this aim will appear for quite a while yet!
  • Go on holiday abroad with toddler H, our first holiday abroad as a family of 3 🙂 – tips welcome!
  • visit family and friends


Thanks for all the blog love!

    Wow, sounds like a busy month ahead. I love the idea of a bucket list as I think it keeps you focused. Love the holiday abroad plan – that’s my kind of objective 😉 #KCACOLS

    I think I need to start doing this, actually write down my goals each month so I know where to focus my attention! I know what you mean about increasing Facebook numbers, it’s pretty tough going over there! x #KCACOLS

    The bucket list is a great idea to keep track of where you are. It’s so easy to lose sight of what you want to achieve when life gets busy!

    This is such a great idea to write some goals and then update at the end of the month – you’ve made such great progress with your stats too! Fab inspiration 🙂 #KCACOLS
