Welcome back to #KCACOLS. We had 32 link ups last time! THANK YOU ALL so much for being part of the linky! I really appreciate your support. For new people joining us this week, I really hope you like #KCACOLS and that you come back again next time! You can also find out more about this linky on the #KCACOLS linky page! 🙂
Please remember that this linky is all about commenting hence the reward of being featured. I cannot chase people individually. That is why I send the “Thank You Email” so people can check the list and also make sure if they have been mentioned so they can go back to the linky and do their commenting.
Now that we have been in lockdown for so long, there is no much to share with you. We have been on holidays for 3 weeks and we will be starting homeschool again next week. We have been indoors most of the time although this week we braved ourselves and went out for a few short walks. We really needed the fresh air. It was nice. The weather has been lovely lately which has definitely helped. My girls have been bonding more than ever which is so lovely to see. Bella also helped daddy to cut his hair. The idea was to trim it a little bit but she ended up shaving it all off lol. He was desperate to cut it all. I wonder how many men are having this issue no lol? I bet the hairdressers will be fully booked when this is over!
We received a few products to review. We got Blume Baby Pop from Blume World which is so cute. We did a little bit of gardening too. I have linked up my post to this linkup. We also got an easter hunt box with a Jumanji themed. We got the movie too. It is very cool. My girls loved it. I have also linked up this post. We also got a few games to review from Frozen 11.
I hope you are all well and safe.
Each linkup, I love sharing a photo from my last 2 weeks on Instagram, so here is my favourite:

✨𝕃𝔸𝕊𝕋 𝕎𝔼𝔼𝕂𝔼ℕ𝔻 𝕆𝔽 𝕋ℍ𝔼 𝔼𝔸𝕊𝕋𝔼ℝ ℍ𝕆𝕃𝕀𝔻𝔸𝕐𝕊✨ This was our last week of the Easter holidays. Yes we had 3 weeks of holidays! I normally moan about it a lot by the end of the last week 😂but this time I have enjoyed having a longer period of holidays. I am not going to lie, I am not looking forward to homeschooling again next week! 🙈This is definitely a hard job for me. I am rubbish at it! I need to do my own research before I help the girls because I don’t remember anything lol. It is so time consuming isn’t it! No idea how it will be next week but of course we will do our best to do as much as we can. However, I won’t worry anymore about my girls being behind at school. We can only try right? Hopefully when all of this is over they will be able to catch up at school. One of the things that I have loved about these past weeks is to see my girls so close. They used to play a lot before but now they are literally inseparable. Although they do still fight a lot, they are growing their bond so much. It is so lovely to see. They are constantly laughing and inventing new games. Love them so much! ❤️ Also, thank goodness for the sunny weather! This has been so lovely right? We adventured for the first time this week with a couple of short walks. We really needed the fresh air after so long indoors. I saw so many lovely flowers blossoming. It was lovely!

KCACOLS CROWD FACEBOOK GROUP

NOW BACK TO THE LINKY
If you are not already subscribed to be informed of new KCACOLS Linky emails, you can click the button below to subscribe:
We had 32 linkups! On Thursday we had 7 posts that needed more comments. By Friday night (deadline for commenting) we manage to reduce this number to 3 posts. I am happy that we managed to reduce the commenting. Again I had a few people that linked up and run again this time and they will be blocked.
Regarding the people that have not commented on the post before theirs, we got 9 people on Thursday. By Friday night, we reduced this number to 6 people. I’m happy that we reduced this number a little bit which is good.
Also, remember to comment on the co-hosts posts. Please also be aware that I’m BLOCKING URLs/Emails of people that have joined the linky and have not commented on any posts for consecutive weeks. If you find I have blocked you by mistake, please contact me.
I also wanted to say that I will need all your comments to be done by Friday as I won’t be doing any counting on Saturdays anymore. So Friday Night will be the deadline for all comments for now on.
The linky will be open for 2 weeks until the second Wednesday at 8 pm or until we reach 100 link ups, whichever comes first.
The co-hosts and I will be allowed to change our posts on the following Saturday after the linky is live. Please be aware of these changes during the second week.
I would suggest that you link up one post each week so you will be able to share something different and current each week. I will also be more strict regarding commenting on the post before yours.
I’m not tweeting individual people once the linky is live but I will tweet the people that have been featured and mentioned. I’ll also post a link to the new linky post on the KCACOLS Facebook Group, pin it on my Twitter account and on my Facebook page together with some generic tweets. I will of course, email all of you the link. If you could also share it by clicking the link below that would be FABULOUS!
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR NEW LINKERS:
PLEASE START by commenting on the post linked up before yours FIRST and then comment on any other posts as much as you would like. Also, use the hashtag #KCACOLS when commenting (this is indeed very important so I can then see how many comments you are doing and then be able to feature you in my linky post which is always great for you as you get a backlink which helps improve your DA).
Thank you so much for all your comments on the host posts and the linky post. As always, I have read and liked all your comments! We will do our best for you to receive a comment from someone on behalf of the linky (either the co-hosts or me).

FEATURED POSTS – TOP 6
For this week’s linky I am linking up Our Jumanji Easter Adventure and Blume Baby Pop – How Many Blume Babies Will You Pop? so I hope you like it! 😉
Please do not forget to follow and check out the #KCACOLS Pinterest Board. We have pinned all your posts from last week’s linky so please go and have a look. There are some great posts that deserve a read!
Now let’s carry on with the linky:
Every 2 weeks I will choose 6 people who have commented A LOT on the linky. Three will be featured and another three will be mentioned in my fortnightly Saturday linky post. This means that 6 people will get a backlink on my new linky post every other Saturday!
1. Be sure to grab the #KCACOLS badge which can be found below or on my sidebar. Simply copy the code from the box below the badge and add it to the text/html at the bottom of your post or place it on your blog sidebar.
2. You can link up to 2 posts. I recommend you to link up one post each week to get the most of the linky.
3. You can share anything that you would like. It is open to absolutely any subject and also you can link up posts that are old or new. You are allowed to link up another linky ONLY if it is a promotional post about the linky and you can do this only once and I expect you to put my badge or a link to my linky and of course to follow the rules regarding commenting.
4. Comment on:
- one of the hosts’ posts (choose one that you would like to comment).
- the guest co-hosts posts.
- the post which is linked up immediately before yours.
- and finally, any other post that you would like to comment on.
That way everybody receives at least two comments (one from the host/guest co-hosts and one from others).
5. This linky will be open every other Saturday from 10 pm and will remain open until the following 2nd Wednesday at 08.00 pm or until we reach 100 link ups, whichever comes first.
6. If you would like us to tweet your post that is absolutely fine, just tweet your link to me @WithFranca, JADE @theautismpage and MELINDA @mckomet and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting on your posts!! 🙂
