Apologies for the lateness of this post as I got struck down with a migraine on Friday. All my plans went out of the window, and I ended up sleeping for most of the morning. Anyway let’s focus on the positives, which is what Little Loves is all about.
It took me less than a fortnight to read The Couple Next Door (which is pretty good going for me), and what a gripping read. To be honest I didn’t have a clue what the book was about prior to starting it, and I would never have guessed the storyline. Definitely a good read, and I now have my next two books lined up.… Continue reading
Phew what a week that was. When you have 2 birthdays to celebrate in one week, it is always going to be filled with lots of fun. What I didn’t factor in was the husband getting the flu. Not even man flu, but the real deal which has seen him signed off work for over a week. It has been a real mixture of a week, but plenty of positives and birthday celebrations.
I got this book for my birthday and can’t wait to start reading it. This year I have set myself a challenge to push my boundaries and read books that I wouldn’t normally pick up.… Continue reading
I think I am slowly emerging from the Christmas bubble and getting back to normal life. I am one of those strange people who love January, as we celebrate not one but two birthdays this month. But before the birthday celebrations we need to take our decorations down this weekend. Christmas has been brilliant this year, and even though the kids are 15 and nearly 12, the magic and excitement is there but just in a different way.
It was my mission to read two books over the Christmas period and I failed miserably. However I am very nearly at the end of this book, and it has been a brilliant read.… Continue reading
What a busy but thoroughly enjoyable fortnight it has been. We have all finished work and school and we are ready for the Christmas holidays. The past fortnight has been filled with Christmas get togethers with my mum, afternoon tea with 2 of my bestest friends, Christmas dinner day in work where I get to sit on a toddler chair surrounded by 40 kids, Winter Wonderland in Manchester, School Christmas Fairs and lots more fun.
I have very nearly finished Summer at the Little Beach Street Bakery (yes I know, reading a summer book in winter), and it has been a lovely read.… Continue reading
Another two weeks has passed since my last Little Loves. The mocks have finally finished and the teen seems to have handled them pretty well. He has been working incredibly hard, and I hope this is reflected in his mock results.
Husband and I spent a lovely day in Chester on Wednesday. For the first 2 hours it was all about the Christmas shopping, and I was like a woman possessed. Once the bags had been deposited back to the car it was time to wander around the Christmas markets. And of course I had my first mulled wine of the season.… Continue reading
How has it been 3 weeks since I did a Little Loves update. It always get a little crazy at this time of year, but I am determined to keep on top of things and remain cool, calm and collected ahead of the festive season (please remind me of this in a few weeks).
Last weekend I met the lovely Angela from Adventures in Websterland, and we had a delicious breakfast at Bistrot Pierre which thankfully included free refills of coffee. Blogging can sometimes be a little lonely, and it was nice to meet Angela and talk non stop about blogging.… Continue reading
I know that some people have yet to start their October half term, but I can’t believe we are nearly at the end of ours. And what a half term it has been for us, filled with amazing adventures for the teen, and new experiences for Katie. The teen went to Iceland on his school trip for 4 days, and what an amazing time he had. If your kids ever come home from school with an ‘Iceland trip letter’ I can honestly say it was worth every single penny. Trouble is, I now want to experience this amazing country too.
Really failed with picking up a book again, but I did stalk the schools instagram account whilst the teen was away.… Continue reading
Just as we have been embracing jumpers and our winter boots, the weather changes and along comes a nice weekend. Well that’s what we have been promised so we shall see. Anyway enough about the weather, and here is a little look back at our past fortnight.
I have barely had time to pick up my book recently. I promise I will get back into reading this week.
I don’t often watch vlogs (apart from when I am being forced to watch Zoella with the 11 year old), but somebody had shared this stunning video of What Alex Did when he visited Haven recently.… Continue reading
How has it been 3 weeks since I last joined in with Little Loves. Time seems to run away with me in the week, and it always takes me a few weeks to settle back into the routine of school. Getting used to packed lunches, school admin and ironing uniforms again. But thankfully no more school runs for me, as both children walk to high school. Here is a little look back at the past 3 weeks.
Reading lots of Trip Advisor reviews ahead of booking our summer holiday. Don’t get me wrong as I know some reviews you need to take with a pinch of salt, but I honestly think I could sit on Trip Advisor all day.… Continue reading
