Little Loves – Dance Shows, Wedding Anniversary and Beads

This week we have celebrated our 15 year wedding anniversary. I know it’s a cliché, but the time really has flown by. I remember our wedding day like it was yesterday, surrounded by our family and friends. It’s funny to think we got married when social media was not around, and any photographs taken had to be developed at Max Spielman. Here we are looking a lot less knackered due to having no kids.



I finished ‘A Baby at the Beach Café’ by Lucy Diamond, which was a nice and easy read. I have just started ‘A Patchwork Marriage’ which I picked up in a charity shop for £1.49. I am a few pages in and already hooked. It’s about parenting difficult teens so I may pick up some valuable hints and tips lol.

On Sunday I went to our local theatre and watched my daughter in her very first dance show. She only started Modern Dance a few months ago, and I was very proud when I watched her on stage. She had to have her hair and make up done a certain way, and I have to thank my friend for not only doing Katies, but also her own daughter too.

Loving James Bay, Let it Go at the moment. Don’t worry it’s not a Frozen version.


Daughter and I have been to a ‘Bead party’ this evening. She had lots of fun making earrings, bracelets and bookmarks.



My new Pandora necklace which was an anniversary present.

And lastly

We are off on a little adventure tomorrow for 3 nights. It’s just the husband and I, and I am really looking forward to going away and chilling out. When I saw this box in TK Maxx a few weeks ago, I had to have it. Life has certainly been an adventure since we met 17 years ago.

  1. This is so lovely! Happy anniversary to you both. I hope you enjoy your break.
    It’s great to hear Katie’s dance show went well. Hair and make-up are such a big deal in dance shows! Luckily my daughter has her own hair nailed and I usually get my mum to do her make-up. x

    • Sarah I nearly passed out when I saw the email as to how she needed her hair and make up done. I am rubbish at doing hair and I am so thankful for my friend stepping in to help. I think I need to go on a course lol x

  2. Congratulations on your wedding anniversary! You look so happy :)) OMG a bead party sounds like so much fun! I don’t think my boys would enjoy one, but I think I could convince my niece to take me to one with her haha xx

    • Aw thanks Steph, time just goes so quick. The bead party was certainly lots of fun, and I even made something for myself x

  3. Congratulations on 15 years! Such a gorgeous wedding picture.
    Look at all those beads! My girls would love playing with those, what a fun idea having a bead party.

    • It was 2 hours of bead fun, and everybody seemed to be having a great time. Aw thank you, 15 years really has gone in the blink of an eye x
