Welcome to this week’s Twinkly Tuesday, the link party hosted by Sadia here at HDYDI, with Lisa at Mummascribbles and Caro of The Twinkle Diaries.

Twinkly Tuesday is forum to meet new people, share a post, and read blogs you might never come across elsewhere. Twinkly Tuesday participants are generous commenters and talented writers.

Each week Lisa, Caro, and I choose a favourite post. If you have been featured, be sure to claim your fame by adding the Twinkly Tuesday Twinkler badge to your blog.

My Tuesday Twinkler is from Learning to Be… Mrs. C. Tracey, like me, feels no guilt about being a working mother, but she does feel guilt about one of the side effects of pairing a career and motherhood: constant exhaustion. Beautifully written.

Guilt over working? No. Guilt about the exhaustion that comes with it? That's another story,

Lisa’s Tuesday Twinkler is from Mummy of Boy Girl Twins, about when life wasn’t this perfect. Jess shares the story behind the picture-perfect family – the struggle with infertility and the war that she and her husband waged to bring her daughter and son into the world. Those who have faced infertility will find hope, and the rest of us understanding.

The picture perfect family may not be all it seems. Behind every family is a story. This one: infertility.

Caro’s Tuesday Twinkler is from The Butterfly Mother. ButterflyMum writes about the power of writing in fighting post-partum depression. “This was a way to purge the horror of intrusive thoughts out of my head and onto paper that I could tear up and throw away.”

A mother uses writing to fight post-partum depression.

Take a moment to visit these posts, if you can. We would love it if you paid a visit to the other host links, and any others that look interesting.

On with this week’s link-up!

Link up a post, old or new, that you think deserves more readers!

Twitter: Be sure to mention me — @hdydi, Lisa — @mummascribbles, or Caro — @twinklediaries, on Twitter and please use the hashtag #TwinklyTuesday. We’ll be sure to retweet every tweet tagged!

We’ll also visit everyone’s posts and leave comments between us.

Pinterest: Pinning everyone’s posts to the Twinkly Tuesday Pinterest board has become more than we can keep up with. I do repin the top pins on the HDYDI Twinkly Tuesday board. We invite you to send an email to or tweet Lisa your email address and she’ll add you to the primary board. Pin your own posts, please!

Each week, all three of us pick the posts to be featured on the following week’s Twinkly Tuesday page.

There are a few easy rules to follow, to ensure that everyone’s posts get the attention they deserve. Please do make the effort to abide by the rules, in fairness to the vast majority who do. We have been forced to block participation for repeat offenders who haven’t responded to multiple reminders.

  • Link up one post per week — old or new.
  • Please be kind enough to add our badge to the bottom of your post/s or your linky page. (Scroll down for the code.) If you haven’t (yet) been featured, please make sure you’re using this badge and not the featured one.
  • Please comment on at least two other posts including the one directly before yours. Visit and comment on as many others as you can. Of course, checking out the hosts’ posts would make us feel very loved.
  • Please use #TwinklyTuesday in your comments so people know where you found them!
  • By linking up, you give us permission to use images from your blog if featured. You also allow us to add you to a mailing list to receive a weekly announcement when Twinkly Tuesday opens.
