Welcome to the Hearth and Soul Link Party! This week I’m thinking about expanding our horizons. My word for the year is ‘expand’ and I’m looking to do this in terms of my experience, learning and reaching out to others.
It’s easy to get in a rut, particularly during a cold, snowy or rainy February, but trying something new and different really can make a difference. I hope this week’s features will inspire you.
At Hearth and Soul, blog posts old and new, about anything that feeds the soul, are welcome. This includes – but is not limited to – family, home, recipes, decorating, crafts, DIY, travel, organisation, book reviews, the arts and self improvement.
What’s Been Happening
InLinkz are still making adjustments to how the Linky presents itself (not all of which I am pleased with!). The style has been updated again, and they appear to have fixed the login bug. I regret that they have made logging in obligatory, but unfortunately they don’t seem to be budging on that. Switching to another platform would mean I would have to have two concurrent subscriptions to two link up platforms in order to keep the old link parties working. The other link up platforms have issues as well, so InLinkz is kind very much the devil I know!
On a more positive note,
Valentine’s Day may be over, but these citrus flavoured St Clement’s Custards still make a wonderful dessert. You can make them in any shape serving dishes!
I’m sharing tips on How To Keep The Romance Alive all year round, and I’ve got a muffin recipe that is lower in sugar, but still a real treat.
My Banana Streusel Muffins with Flaxseed are the perfect balance between naughty and nice!
