The Pretty Pintastic Party #64 + Summer Break!

HELLO SUMMER!

The Summer holidays have finally started here and the weather has gone downhill, which sounds about right for the UK haha! 

With it being Summer break, I’m sure everyone is enjoying time with their families and going off on holiday, so I’m going to be taking the Summer off from the blog to enjoy time with my family. Although, you must know me by now, my “taking time off” normally turns out to be busier than my normal working week and I do have some things planned for the blog behind the scenes! And… I may do the odd recipe during the coming weeks, it just won’t be full on, normal blogging schedule.

Also, I finally have my appointment with a surgeon for my back problems, so at some point in the not too distant future, I may be flat on my back unable to do anything, so I figure trying to prepare myself and not over work and over stress will probably do me some good….

As ever, the Pretty Pintastic Party will still be here every Friday and I’ll still be looking through all of your fabulous links. Have a wonderful Summer and I’ll be back with new recipes before you know it!

 Welcome to the Pretty Pintastic Party where all posts are pinned; features pinned by all!

Important:  Once again this week, we had to have to pass over a few posts that we thought would make great features…. but when we checked to see if the bloggers had pinned the features, they hadn’t, so we had to choose different features (we check not only the repins, but also pins from that blogger’s feed). 

Since repinning is the ONLY rule at our party, we will ONLY choose features from those who repin.

Thanks for your understanding, and please know that we really appreciate those of you who DO repin!
