Looking Back on the Second Term of the Saturday Sesh Linky

Yay!  Lucy and I have successfully made it through two full terms running ‘the Saturday Sesh’ linky – juggling blogging, teaching, family life and hosting the linky (#thesatsesh) too.

We continue to enjoy hosting our weekend linky  –   reading fabulous posts from regulars and discovering new blogs too.  Often we found it very difficult to choose just one post each to feature per week as the quality of the collection is so high.

This post, therefore, is a chance to showcase more of the different blogposts that have linked up with us over the last few weeks.  Some that we didn’t get a chance to feature at the time.

My first pick is this one from Karen at Two Buttons and Us. As a teacher I find the decision to home educate fascinating and have loved learning more about how it works through reading different blogs.  This post is a really interesting reflection on Karen and her family’s first year of home educating.

I also really liked this post from Cathryn at Little Paper Swans as I love reading about bloggers who blog fulltime and how they got to that point.  This is a beautifully written summary of what Cathryn has achieved over 6 year’s of hard work.

This post from the fab Mummy Here and There was another goodie – a super sweet positive post about motherhood.

Then I loved this post from Sensational Learning with Penguin as it brings back fond memories of me and the family making this heart garland on Valentine’s Day.  The instructions are so easy to follow even for a non-crafty person like myself!

Jen aka Mighty Mama Bear wrote this  powerful post about feminism and being a SAHM too.

Also, Jude from Siena Says put together a very comprehensive list about the pros and cons of working from home and as someone who has always thought how lovely it would be to be able to work from home I found this very interesting indeed!

And here is a LOL post from Andy at Dad’s Sofa – so much of this sounded so familiar to me!

This post from Catie aka Spectrum Mum was another exceptional post from a blogging powerhouse.  I have learned so much about autism from Catie and this post is an excellent example of how she writes informatively as well as stylishly too.  

Then we have Nicola or Mummy Wales’ super sweet and very reflective and reassuring lessons she’s learned as a parent and her superbly written The Mother Next Door – if you have a chance to read this, please do it is so poignant.

I love hearing about Andrea and her family’s adventures (The Topsy Turvy Tribe) living the simple life on the continent and this post was a real eye-opener to what living off-grid meant!

Finally I would like to draw your attention to this beautifully written poem by the super talented Rhyming Mum.


I’m sure you’ll agree that this is an eclectic mix of excellent blog posts which is absolutely what The Saturday Sesh linky is all about.

We can’t wait to read lots more fabulous posts as the weather warms up in 2018.  Please join us whenever you can.
