brilliant blog posts-Honest Mum
It feels like I’ve been away for ages folks (it was only a week!) Welcome back to Brilliant Blog Posts anyway!

Thanks for all the blog love while I was away in Marbella chaps and linking up your diverse and fittingly brilliant posts over my 2 week #brilliantblogposts linky.

…There was a little passport drama the day before we flew so not everyone in my family made it to Spain in the end but I’ll let you read all about it in the POST.

Huge thanks to the gorgeous James Villa Holidays for the utterly stunning villa they asked me to review while there.

Puerto Banus

I’m linking up one epic post brimming with photos I have taken for a change as my paparazzo husband stayed back in Blighty; I hope you enjoy our Spanish adventures as much as we did having them.

I’ve also started blogging for Woman Magazine so I’ve linked up my first recipe post for them too. Enjoy!

    Would really like to try a James Villas holiday – we’ve been teaching the kids to swim first though – I’m too nervous about pools otherwise x

    Ooh, just found you on Twitter – looks a fun little linkup 🙂

    Looking forward to browsing many, many new blogs throughout the day, hehe.

        Thanks for the welcome, I feel like I’ve stumbled on a little Aladdin’s Cave, haha.

        I’ve not read all of the entries as not everything is ‘up my street’, but I’ve spent more time reading this afternoon than I probably should of and am still only about half way through the list so far – definitely keeping me quiet and out of trouble 😉

        Found some great new blogs to follow, so I’m happy 🙂
