Post Comment Love 14th - 16th December

It's Friday again and that can only mean one thing - it's time for Post Comment Love. Join Stephanie and me, link up your favourite or best post of the week and we'll stop by to give it some love! We welcome all bloggers, all topics, and we always look forward to seeing the different kind of posts that are linked up.

With Christmas Day looming and the craziness that comes with wrapping hundreds of presents we're going to be taking a Post Comment Love break. So, this week is the last week of Post Comment Love for 2018 and we'll be returning on 11th January 2019. I want to take a moment to thank every one of you that continues to link up every week, we're so grateful that you've kept this little linky going all these years!


It's been a busy week for us this week, we've spent some time shopping (we're not done with Christmas shopping yet!) and we're almost finished. I'm lucky this year that I don't have to plan for cooking Christmas Lunch for 20 people - we're eating out on Christmas Day! It's a little pub we found in our local are and it looks lovely, and I'm so looking forward to having a Christmas Day where I don't have to cook! It'll be the first time since becoming a mum - that's 14 years! I think I'm the only one that's this excited about eating out but it's going to be SO good.

I am going to take this break and spend time with my family, we'll be playing plenty of board games and console games, we'll talk and enjoy our favourite movies - but most of all we'll be together. And I cannot wait!

I want to take a moment to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

See you in 2019!

What you do have planned for the Christmas break?

Blogger Showcase Jo from A Rose Tinted World

Who are you?

My name is Jo and I’m an almost 47 year old mum to an almost 3 year old toddler. I blog at and live in Leeds in the UK. 

How did you discover blogs/blogging?

About a year ago I gave up my career of 23 years. I was feeling unfulfilled being a dentist with the company I worked for. As a new mother I also wanted to spend more time watching my little one discover the world. I’d also recently taken up sewing and found a new community of bloggers and businesses over on Instagram. 

Why did you start blogging?

I realised that I have a lot of life experiences that I wanted to share and blogging seemed the ideal way to do that. It would also connect me more to my new found sewing passion, and allow me to blog about my new life! 

What do you find most challenging?

Finding the time to do it all! I honestly take my hat off to people who fit this in and work full time. Creating content and networking for the blog can be a full time job. I have a long list of to-dos that I really need to get around to. I am challenged daily by time.

What is your favourite topic to write about?

My favourite topic to write about is being an older mum and the challenges I’ve had with that. Being a mother is often a very demanding job, no matter what your age. As women are having children later due to careers I do think that it’s an important topic to cover. There were lots of reasons why I left having children until later but my career was definitely one of them. Ironically, being a mother was one of the reasons I decided that my career had to take a back seat for a while! 

Are you blogging for fun or do you have goals?

I am blogging for myself at the moment, but do hope to build a little bit of a business from it. I did have a goal of having an Etsy shop but blogging has taken over from that. I have made tentative steps into the affiliate world but haven’t gone totally down that road yet. 

What is your favourite thing about blogging?

My favourite thing about blogging is finding other people who share my views. It is great to find people who are going through the same battles and share hints and tips. Though I also love finding completely different points of view that are the total opposite of mine. The community is much more diverse than I ever imagined, and I have learnt so much in the last couple of months.

Have you ever attended a blogging conference and if so, what did you think?

I have never attended a blogging conference. I think I would be a bit shy at the moment. I’m such a newbie. 

What are your 3 best posts?

My 3 best posts in my opinion are about how I came to be an older mum and my pregnancy.

Which are great simple tips to follow if you want to lose weight. 


A list of what makes me happy, and why it’s important to be grateful for what we already have.

Describe yourself in three words!

In 3 words, I would say I’m kind, intelligent and passionate. 

Are you a tea and biscuits or coffee and cake person?

I’m definitely a coffee and cake person. The only tea I drink is red bush. 

What's your idea of a perfect night out?

My perfect night out is going into town with my close friends. I’ve 3 very good friends, two of which I’ve known since school. We often find something a bit different to do rather than just drinking, so we could go do an escape game or book a karaoke room. I sing a mean show tune! 

Your perfect night in?

My perfect night in would be dinner with my close family. My brother has a daughter who is 4 months older than my little one. It’s wonderful to watch them get together. 

What would your best friend/OH/mum or kids say is your best quality?

My other half would say that my best quality is my sense of humour. He says that I should show it more in my blogs. I tell him that he needs to shut up, concentrate on finishing that dusting and that the cat litter will need doing later.
