Country Kids 04/08/18

Welcome to Country Kids. A huge thank you to Fiona at Coombe Mill for running this linky for the last seven years. Country Kids was one of the first linkies I joined in when I started my blog four years ago. It helped inspire me to enjoy so many outdoor adventures with my girls and create happy memories. It is an honour to be taking over hosting along with Helena from The Queen of Collage and Lucy from Kids of the Wild. Helena will be co-hosting with me initially with Lucy hopefully joining us later on.


About Country Kids

Country Kids is the original outdoor family fun linky designed to:


“Encourage family fun outdoors, in an age where technology and screens are such a draw to a sedentary indoor life”


The Country Kids community is supportive and welcoming. It’s a great place to share outdoor posts and find inspiration for future outdoor adventures.


Country Kids 04/08/18

It’s been a busy week for me with the arrival of baby Thomas. We’ve mostly stayed indoors enjoying the newborn bubble but Sophie and I enjoyed some simple outdoor fun with bubbles in the garden the day before Thomas’s arrival. It is the little moments like this that often bring the most pleasure.I love the joy in her face in this photo.

  • There is no restriction on the number of posts that can be linked up, however please be sensible, if you have more than 3 consider linking over a few weeks.

  1. Thank you for taking on country kids. I have truly enjoyed being a part of the country kids community for many years.

  2. Congratulations on the birth of baby Thomas, what a busy time for you! Thanks to you and Helena for taking over the Country Kids mantle from Fiona so the linky can continue – it was the first one I joined as a newbie blogger too. I’ll definitely be able to co-host with you from the end of August. Wild wishes to everyone on the linky!
