mums list #3

I missed out on last weeks mums list because rather tragically I have been laptopless for over a week and to top it all off I was also phoneless for a couple of days – technology really failed me last week it was very odd after admittedly spending way to much time on my phone in recent months to all of a sudden be cut off, but I actually rather enjoyed it after twiddling my thumbs for half hour thinking I sharnt survive I got on like a normal person and had a really nice relaxing day with the kids. It has definitely made me see I need to put the phone and laptop down in the other room more often or it just becomes a habit to flick through twitter or check my emails every 2 minutes.

Real Life

  • This week I’ve been on a mission to de-clutter and have a good sort out I started off with the kitchen got some great little storage boxes and got everything in order, this is sooo boring to everyone else but oh I do love a good sort out.
  • this week we have been at home quite a bit having people over or just doing some crafts or attempting some baking.
  • Last Friday we had such a fun afternoon at home making our den and spending some quality time together.
  • Monday we had a lovely day flying kites on the beach with fish and chips.
  • Also this week FINALLY my new laptop came I went for the lenovo yoga 2 and I’m soo happy with it, it can be used as a tablet or a laptop and after having an ancient old Toshiba for ages having a touchscreen I’m feeling very fancy!

social media & blogging

  • I’ve hit 300 followers on twitter very pleased with I’m getting a slow and steady stream of new followers so that’s great.
  • My most popular post from the last week was my disastrous scones my baking skills are questionable to say the least.
  • I’ve been contacted by my first brand about doing a review so that’s really exciting!
  • My Blog had a complete make over last week I spent hours just tweeking bits and pieces with the lay out and I’m so pleased with how its looking even if I do say so myself!

My goals for this week

  • After reading this post from you baby me mummy and taking on some of the great tips listed I really need to try get more organised when it comes to blogging I’m going to try and get my posts written in advance not just the day I post and I need to promote more!
  • I want to join in with more linkys I often forget but its a great way to get more views and find some great new blogs as well.
  • I’m also off to a Bournemouth bloggers meet up this weekend – I’m so nervous! But once I’ve been and hopefully gained a bit of confidence I plan to book a ticket to Blogfest!

    Thanks for mentioning my post, very kind of you. I wrote a linky post that published on Tuesday if you didn’t see it, it might be useful for you.. Well done on your followers and getting your first review. I don’t know how you coped without technology for that long. I would have had a total meltdown! Thanks for linking to #MumsList x

    It sounds like you’ve had a great week (apart from the lack of laptop.) Well done getting 300 twitter followers. That is amazing. Also, brilliant news about the brand. That is exciting. I’ve not had any brands approach me yet. Booo! I might need some tips! Hugs Mrs H xxx

    Sounds like we both started blogging at the same time! It’s all very overwhelming some days isn’t it, so much to do and learn. I’ve just bought my ticket to Blogfest this week, which is quite exciting! How did you find out about your local meet-up? Have a great time!
