Another fortnight has passed since I last wrote my Little Loves, and what a funny 2 weeks it has been. The kids went back to school, and for Katie this is her final term at her Primary (all of the sobs from me). And just when we were settling into our normal routine, husband did his back in. For the best part of a week he was lying on the sofa in agony, but thankfully he is on the mend now. We had lunch out on Wednesday, and yesterday he went back to work.

I love buying books from charity shops, and I picked this up yesterday for £1.49. I finished reading the previous 2 books in the series just a few weeks ago. Looking forward to starting this as soon as I finish my current book.

I caught up with Child of Our Time on the BBC. We have watched every episode of this ground breaking documentary, following the lives of a group of children who were born in 2000. I think we have always followed it as our youngest was born in 2002, and is around 18 months younger than the children in the programme. Presented by the amazing Robert Winston, which my husband had the privilege of meeting a few years ago.

Apart from making lots of cups of tea for my husband, it will come as no surprise that I have made nothing. BUT look at what my clever friend made for me. She is SO creative and is always making me little presents which mean to the world to me. Thank you Claire if you are reading this.

Tales from the teen about his hiking weekend for his silver Duke of Edinburgh. He went straight from school last Friday, and returned at 3pm on the Sunday. He hiked for well over 10 hours during the weekend, and of course he came back shattered, smelly and slightly sun burnt (naughty me forgot to remind him to pack sun cream). There was no chance of getting a picture of him complete with ruck sack, so here is the top of his head in Greece…. the normal teen stance.

And just when you get a glimpse of spring, it is cruelly snatched away from you and back out come the winter boots. Please make up your mind weather. I think a few days ago we had sleet, rain, sun, wind, thunder and lightening, all in one day.

And lastly

I keep forgetting that we have another bank holiday weekend to look forward to. With the husband being off work poorly, I have lost track of the days. We have no plans apart from going to see Katie in her dance show on Saturday. She is dancing at our local theatre and is very excited. Have a lovely weekend x
