Share the Joy linky

This week I'm really pleased and a little bit excited to be co-hosting the Share the Joy linky with the lovely Michelle over at Bod for Tea.  It's my first time going anywhere near being this side of a linky and I've already learnt so much about how these happen from the other side of the fence! 

I've not met Michelle in real life yet, but Bod for Tea is a blog I've read for a while now and I've been linking up to Michelle's Share the Joy linky each week as I'm a firm believer that joy doesn't diminish if it's shared, in fact I'm pretty sure it does the opposite.  Often we focus on what's going wrong, rather than what's going right but by making just a small shift in our focus it could mean so much and make so much more difference than we'd expect, if we let it. 

Right, on to the link up. 

Remember all genres are welcome at Share the Joy - new posts or old favourites. Posts that might have made you laugh out loud, opened your heart, raised your spirits or just made you smile!

Sharing my joy

Each week, Michelle picks a favourite post and features it on the following week’s Share the Joy link up - she's also made a Pinterest board where you'll find all her favourites in one place. 

Today I'm sharing a short film of me talking about how I recycle my food waste. It's one of ten which are already live on the Recycle Now website, so I hope you'll pop over to my post and have a watch - if nothing else you'll get to see my new kitchen! You may think it's odd but recycling food waste is important to me.  It's not as bad, smelly or gross as you might imagine either, I promise. And it's good for our planet too, so what's not to like?
