Twinkly Tuesday : 09/01/2018

Hello and welcome to the first Twinkly Tuesday link up of 2018. As well as being the first of 2018, it is also my first week as the new host of Twinkly Tuesday. Twinkly Tuesday is the linky where you can share your favourite posts, old or new!  

As you may know, I have taken over from Lisa. Lisa has done an amazing job in setting up and running the linky for several years and I know many of you have linked up. She has been incredibly helpful to me whilst I take over and I do hope you'll continue to take part and will forgive me for any teething problems. The badges, in particular, have given me a little trouble so please do let me know if you have any difficulties with them. I'm really looking forward to reading your posts and finding some new favourite blogs to read. 

With a new start, now is the ideal time to make a few small changes to the 'rules', so do please take a moment to read the information below to see what's what. 

* * *
* You can link up to one post per week, old or new.  Any additional posts will be deleted.  
* The linky will open at 6am Tuesday and close at 23.55 the next day (Wednesday).
*  Please add the Twinkly Tuesday badge to the bottom of your post. 
* By linking up, you are giving me permission to use the images from your blog if featured as a Tuesday Twinkler.

*  Please comment on at least two other posts, including the one directly before yours and as many others as you can - we're all busy but let's show other blogs some love!
* I will comment on as many posts as I possibly can but please do not be offended if I don't manage to visit your blog. Rest assured, I'll continue to choose a Tuesday Twinkler. 
* Don't forget to add #TwinklyTuesday to your comments so please know where you found them.

* Sharing your post on Twitter? Don't forget to tag me, @newmummykate, using #TwinklyTuesday and I'll make sure to RT you!

* Edited * 
HUGE apologies to anyone who has been having difficulties with badges.  I've removed the originals with dodgy coding and replaced with these. For now, please save/upload the badges below and direct to

  1. Delighted to be joining you. I couldn't get the badge to work so I made my own linking to here.

    1. Thank you! Sorry for the difficulty, I'm trying to fix!

  2. Hi Kate! So fun that you are taking over the linkup. Thanks for hosting! Looking forward to getting to know you better!

  3. Hey hun - I don't know if its just me but I can't get the badge to work. Tried a few times but my site doesn't like it?

    1. No, the badge coding seems to be a bit dodgy. Apologies for the problems, I'm trying to fix!

  4. Thanks for making the commitment to keep this link up going!
    I tried to copy your button to my site, but it wouldn't work . . . do you have any suggestions I could try?

    1. Sorry for this Michele! I'm struggling to get it work at the moment. Please save the badge directly from the post and link to Thank you!

  5. Welcome to being the new host of Twinkly Tuesday! I want to ask you a favor thoug: could you please simplify the code for the link back/badge, as somehow my does something odd with the code that renders it invalid and it's a hassle to have to read through the entire code and see what's wrong. Alternatively, is a link back to your blog or to the weekly post acceptable instead of the badge?

    1. Hello! Really sorry for the difficulties I'm struggling to get it working at the moment. Please save the badge directly from the post and link to Thanks for your patience.
