Little Loves – Blog On, Freezer Teas and a Strange Week

I am so glad we have reached the weekend as this week has been all about ups and downs.  Last weekend was going well until we received a phone call to say my husband’s dad had been taken to hospital. It has been a worrying few days but thankfully he should be back home either today or tomorrow. As my inlaws live over 4 hours away, husband jumped on a train and spent a few days down in South Wales with his parents.

I finally finished Girl on the Train. Whilst it is not my usual type of book, I really enjoyed it and will definitely be going to the cinema when it comes out. I was shocked when the husband said he wanted to read it after me, as we have very different tastes in fiction.

I have started to read ‘A Baby at the Beach Café’ by Lucy Diamond. It is a quick read book which my friend was giving away for the recent World Book Night. It is the third Lucy Diamond book I have read, and I am looking forward to finishing it this weekend.


I can’t think of anything worthwhile I have watched this week. I have recorded the new series of In the Club on BBC, and will be watching it tonight. I LOVED the last series and hope the follow up is just as good.

LOTS of chatter and laughter at BLOG ON MSI on Sunday. This was my second blogging conference and I loved every minute of it. The sessions were informative, the brands were lovely and it was a delight to meet up with blogging friends old and new.  I finally got to meet Sarah from Mum of Three World after chatting to her on twitter for around 3 years. I came back exhausted but full of ideas.  Of course the minute I stepped into the house my amazing goody bags were raided by the kids. Hands off the wine…… IT’S MINE.

Eek nothing. Because of the strange week we have just had, too many freezer teas have been consumed. Back to cooking from scratch this week.


I treated myself to a new top for Blog on MSI which I wore with jeans and a long cardigan.

And lastly

This coming week sees Katie performing in her very first dance show at our local theatre, and a very special wedding anniversary. Have a great week.
