10/07/2017 Creative Mondays & This Weeks Features…

Happy Monday, Welcome back to this weeks Creative Mondays blog party!

How has your weekend been?

We’ve had a busy weekend. First up me and the youngest two children ran Parkrun on Saturday morning. It was so warm. I feel like I am getting slower and slower with my running at the minute, I must try harder!!

Today is also Don’t Step On A Bee Day.

I hate it when you have to run through long grass, I always worry if there is any bees in it.

Me, my Daughter and son went out for a run a few weeks ago and my son stood still and waited for us as we were so behind him, he stood in the long grass and as he waited for us a bee stung him. He was shaking his leg and shouting in pain. Ouch, I felt it  for him!!

I don’t think he will be too keen in waiting for us in a hurry again!!

Welcome to this week’s Creative Mondays linky party. Thank you so much for linking up last week and here are this week’s featured posts: What has got you creative this week?

Love this outfit from Joi Seeing Stripes. I love the stripes and Joi’s shoes are great ๐Ÿ™‚

These Patriotic Fruit Popsicles look and sound amazing. I can not wait to try some.

I love this How To Make A 3d Sheepscape Picture from Coombe Mill. Such a great and original idea.

Hands up who fancy’s a slice of April’s Mixed Fruit Pavlova!? Both my hands are in the air.

Charlotte from The Dainty Darling looks lovely and cool in her yellow stappy romper.

    I am loving that how to dress up flip flops post! What fun. And I here you about the bees in long grass…I am always fearful of that, too, as I usually have the worst reactions to stings. Ugh.Shelbeewww.shelbeeontheedge.com

    I have no idea how you keep up with so many great linky things. I am allergic to bee stings so ouch indeed although I guess we have to love them for the honey.
