Blogmas 2018 Completed

Blogmas was the last thing on my mind after completing Blogtober, but in the final hour, I decided to take part in this blogging challenge. One post every day for the month of December. 23 brand new posts and eight updated posts that fit in with the theme of Christmas and giving. All the usual Tea and Cake for the Soul topics were covered too: music, travel, eco ideas, money saving, books, recipes, kindness and crafts.

Read on to see the links to all my Blogmas posts and find out what were the most popular. I’d love to hear what your favourites were too.
