Big Pink Link 48

It’s Big Pink Link again. How does that happen?!

I’m hosting this week and I have a very special guest co-hostess with the mostess, the very beeeeyoootiful Harriet from Toby and Roo!

If you follow me on social media, you may have seen the sad news that our lovely boy Monty has died. I just want to say thank you for all the lovely comments and well wishes we have had. I appreciate it so much. We are all absolutely devastated but trying to soldier on, we will never not miss him though. 🙁

I’m typing through tears. Well, for the first time in my life, I don’t have a dog. Monty has gone. He was possibly the best dog ever and definitely my best friend. We are all grieving hard, and miss him a crazy amount. I think it will hit me even worse tomorrow as I am so used to him lying at my feet as I work. We are also going to need a doorbell as I never heard the door knocker, only his barks told me someone was here! Rest in peace my boy, this is how I want to remember you, in your favourite place. Happy and free of pain again. It feels awful to write it down, but I’ve had so many lovely messages asking about him, I wanted to tell you. Thanks for all your lovely comments and support recently. It has meant an awful lot. I’m so glad I wrote my tribute before as it would be too painful now. It’s on my blog if you would like to know how utterly brilliant he was! 💗 #pinklinker

Some Wows from last week! If you’re mentioned below, do help yourself to our Wow badge. 🙂

Hannah’s Wows:  I loved this post from Laura, Five Little Doves, its such a beautiful and honest letter to her seventeen year old self. I may or may not have both laughed and cried reading it.

I am sure many of us can relate to this post from Cheryl, Tea and Wine about dealing with impatience. I love how honestly she talks about her lack of patience, I think its something we all deal with on a daily basis and don’t talk about, but should!

Gemma’s Wows: I loved this post by maddadskillz. I could completely relate to it and it had me laughing along as I read it. We have all told a little white lie before but when you encourage your child to tell a lie (for their own good in this instance – bring on the Lego Pony ride!) is that your child’s moral compass doomed forever?

A hard one to read, but an even harder one for the lovely Sarah of Mum Muddling Through to write. Baby loss has sadly touched many of us, if not personally, than someone close to us. Sarah has really bravely managed to write about her experience of loosing a baby at 23 weeks. She writes with such emotion and honesty, it left me reading through tear filled eyes and wanting to give her a huge hug. Well done Sarah.x

On with the link up. Have fun everyone! 😀

    So sorry for your loss – I am sure you have lots of memories which will sustain you as in any loss but devastating all the same.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. Having had an amazing rescue dog for several years, who saw off several boyfriends before my husband came along, I completely understand how it feels. X #BigPinkLink
