Chucklemums Linky Week 28

Greetings, Chuckleheads!  Welcome back to Week 28 of the Chucklemums linky, bringing together the FUNNY posts from across the parenting blogger world.  I had the week off last week, which was just as well as I was struck down by the Dreaded Lurgy and was no use to anyone.  Being ill when you’re a mum is especially crap – my two Feral Children couldn’t have cared less that I was dying.

Your Chucklemums hosts are Fran (Whinge Whinge Wine), Sarah (Mumzilla), Sam (Mouse Moo Me Too) and me, Beth (Beta Mummy).  We have decided to give ourselves each a week off every four weeks, and it’s Sam’s turn, so this week you’ve got Fran, Sarah and I tweeting and commenting.


Thanks linkers for all the great links last week.  I do need to make a serious request, though. Lately a few non-funny posts have been creeping in. Now by “non-funny”, I don’t mean that it’s a slightly dubious type of humour, or that the writer has tried and failed to be funny in my opinion. No, I mean that there have been one or two posts that by no stretch of the imagination could have ever been written with any intention of being humorous. Please, if your post isn’t in some way, shape or form amusing, link it elsewhere. Thank you (and apologies if I sound like a total bitch).

However, there was no question about our Pants of Pride winning post being funny, and this week the Pants belong to Lucy from Occupation: (m)other.  Not only has she just had a baby, she can still function well enough to cobble together a great post and join linkies – what a woman! It was the door handle that did it – check out her post if you haven’t already, and you’ll get what I mean…



Well deserved – swing by and collect your #PantsAward badge here.

We’re organised little bees and have stored all of the previous winners here, so if you’ve got a spare ten hours then do mooch over and have a read through.

New Shiny Things!

In the name of all things progressive, we’re dipping our #Chucklemums fingers into all sorts of pies.

Facebook… We now have a swanky Facebook page, here, where we’ll share the winning posts each week as well as various witterings. So you’d better like the page, innit.

Pinterest… We’ve (literally) just started a #Chucklemums board where we’ll be sure to* pin your posts each week, because we’re good hosts like that.

*We’ll try to remember.  Bearing in mind that I personally have no idea what Pinterest is all about, this could be a rash promise.  Sam knows what she’s doing with it, though 😉

Instagram… We’re also opening up a spanking new Instagram tag and hosting a monthly collection of funny photos, designed to make us chuckle. If they tie in with your linked post, all the better. So, from the 1st of each month, just use the #Chucklemums hashtag and tag our usernames, and we’ll choose our favourite at the end of the month. The winner will get a supersexy Instapants badge, wooo!

Sigh, and now the rules, to stop you all going rogue:

  • You’re welcome to link up to two posts each week. No advertising, paid reviews or sponsored posts please.
  • Posts don’t have to be brand new but they must be yours and they must be funny.
  • Please add your blog or Twitter handle before the title of your post when you link up.
  • We open our proverbial doors at 7am Tuesday and call last orders just before 10pm, so you have plenty of time to link up. We try to have all commenting complete by Friday (try!), and announce the winner of the coveted #PantsAward over the weekend.
  • We’ll rotate the hosting so that three of us are on duty each week. This means that you’ll always get at least two hosts commenting on your linked post, and sometimes even all three if we’re in good moods.
  • We’d be grateful if you could comment on each of the host posts, if you have time. Then the world is your oyster – just choose any other linked post that you fancy and leave them a meaningful comment. Things like “Great post!” are a bit wishy washy.
  • If you like a post, feel free to share it on your social media, spread the funny!
  • PLEASE make sure your Twitter handle appears on your sharing link!
  • Once you’ve added your link, tweet  @whingewine, @beta_mummy and @mousemoo_metoo with the hashtag #chucklemums, linking your post for a retweet.

Let’s slap a badge on it and get you linked…

Finalment, click here to add your link!

Loads of love,

The Chucklemums xxx
