Monday Morning Blog Club 19/12/16
Goodmorning people and fellow bloggers…
Oh my! I can’t believe it’s the last Monday before Christmas, can you? Are you ready for the big day?…I swear Halloween was only last week! And before I start rambling and totally forget, I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Are you planning a quiet time or will it be total madness for the next couple of weeks?
This past week was so totally manic it was not fun. I had barely any time for blogging, but the kitchen and everything in it is spotless, the freezers have been defrosted and sorted, and the house resembles Santa’s Grotto, so I am a happy bunny.
It’s taken longer than expected, but my ‘Happy’ kitchen is almost finished. The doors need another coat of paint, but that can wait until after Christmas now and today I should be able to put the heavy stuff on the counter. Can’t wait!… Here’s a question… Are the doors and tops pink or purple? I say fuchsia, my Dad reckons purple. It’s turning into a family debate!
It is very early Saturday morning right now, and I am hoping that by the time Monday morning comes around that I can report that the Christmas cake has finally been baked and the Christmas pudding steamed, if not we could end up starting a new Easter tradition in this house. It is safe to say that by now the fruit has been well and truly soaked. In the quiet of the morning, I can almost hear it gently hiccuping from the confine of the tubs.
Yesterday (Sunday) was my Birthday (my! It does feel weird writing this a day early) and I hope to have spent it doing not much. I am hoping to have taken the dogs for a nice walk and then to spend the afternoon watching Christmas films (much to my Mums disappointment!). How do you enjoy spending your Birthday? Are you a big celebrator or do you prefer quiet day? I may even get a cheeky Christmas film in before sunrise!
This morning will be the final Twitter chat of the year and we will be taking a little break and will resume in the New Year, by then everything will be back to normal and we will probably all be gagging for some normality.
Today’s Twitter chat (MMBChat) will run from 10.15am until 11.15am. Why not pop along and join in, don’t be shy!
For anyone who is a bit nervous about joining in, don’t be, it’s no more than a virtual coffee morning. There are no rules, it’s just an hour where we can chat, share tips, ask advice and get to know one another a bit better and build a nice, supportive community. I’m afraid you have to supply your own coffee, though…. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #MMBChat or #mmbchat to make it easy for everyone to follow the chat.
If you wouldn’t mind popping our #MMBChat badge somewhere on your blog to help spread the word, we will love you forever!
The Monday Morning Blog Club 19/12/16
Todays #MMBC link up will be the last of the year and we will be taking a much-needed break, spending time with the families until January 2nd. Thank you to everyone who has linked up and supported the Monday Morning Blog Club throughout 2016. Without your support, the linky would not be possible.
The Monday Morning Blog Club is a link up co-hosted by myself and Jayne, from Sticky Mud And Belly Laughs, and is the perfect place to showcase your blog. Just link up your blog URL and let others do the browsing. We do get some fab blogs linking up and it’s always good to find new blogs to read.
The #MMBC link up goes live at 8am (UK time) every Monday morning and stays open until 11.55 pm the same day.
The Rules Are Simple…
- Add your blog URL (not individual posts please) to the link up below.
- Read and comment on at least a couple of other blogs of your choice.
That’s all you have to do. Jayne and I will go through, comment and share all the linked up blogs between us.
It would be fantastic if you could help spread the word of the #MMBC by including the hashtag in your comments and tweets. If you’d like a RT just tag me and Jayne in your Tweets with the hashtag (@ChirpyDebs, @SMABLblog #MMBC) and we will endeavour to RT them all.
Adding the #MMBC member badge to a sidebar or linky page would also be appreciated.
