Whatever the Weather Linky #12

Whatever the weather linky

Welcome back to Whatever the Weather!

Some fabulous posts as usual, great that you’re all getting out into the outdoors even though the weather is getting a bit cooler.  Hope to see lots more autumn fun this week.

This month we are holding a competition for all #Whatevertheweather linkers.  The fabulous Squidkids are giving away two of their amazing colour changing umbrellas to two of you lovely linkers.  Squidkids specialise in colour changing jackets, wellies, umbrellas and bags that change when they get wet.  How cool would that be?!  Walking along in the rain and your umbrella starts to change colours!  Anyway, as you know Chloe and I give a little shout-out to our favourite posts each week, this month will be the same, but we will also add the 2 favourites each week to the competition for the Squidkids umbrellas.  At the end of the month we will choose the top two posts to win a Squidkids umbrella each.   Good luck!

Also a reminder, please read the rules below.  This linky is for FAMILY OUTDOOR posts, any post that is not family AND outdoors will be removed from the linky.  To link up you must grab the badge (please use the code to include the link back) and comment on the 2 host posts and at least 2 other links.  This way everyone should get some linky love, which is what this is all about. x

Whatever the Weather: We’re out there together

I am co-hosting this fantastic linky with my lovely friend and blogger Chloe from over at Life Unexpected.

My favourite post from last week was Kippers and Curtains Forest Bathing.  I love the idea of forest walks being prescribed to increase well being and Sarah’s photos are gorgeous.


Chloe’s favourite post this week was Domesstique’s Apple Sail boats, a great idea for play with the kids, something I’ll definitely be trying out.

You’re now both in the running for one of the SquidKids lovely colour changing umbrellas.  Good luck! 🙂
