Welcome back to Whatever the Weather. Even though it’s only just September, I am really feeling in the mood for autumn right now. It’s one of my favourite seasons and although a little early we managed to get outside and do my favourite autumn activity this week: blackberry picking! I can’t wait to see what you’ve all been up to.


Whatever the Weather: We’re out there together

I co-host this linky with the lovely Jenny over at Monkey and Mouse. This linky is the place to share your outdoor family fun posts. Whether they’re old or new, we want to read them!

This month we’re holding a competition for all #Whatevertheweather linkers. Squidkids are giving away two of their incredible colour changing umbrellas to two of you lovely linkers! Squidkids specialises in jackets, wellies, umbrellas and bags that change colour when they get wet. How cool is that? As you know Jenny and I always feature our favourite posts from the week before right here. Each week in September our two favourite posts will be added into the competition to win a Squidkids umbrella. At the end of the month we will choose the top two posts to win a Squidkids umbrella each. Good luck!


It is always so hard to choose just one post to be featured. This week my favourite was a post by Yorkshire Tots and was titled ‘10 reasons to try the Bolton Welly Walk’. It looks like so much fun and the perfect excuse to get muddy! I wish we had this in Cornwall.bolton-abbey-welly-walk-coverJenny’s favourite was the Broch of Culswick by Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary. What a stunning place to go geocaching!


Congratulations both of you, you’ve been entered into our competition!
