It’s been 2 weeks since I joined in with the ‘Little Loves’ linky, and to be honest I nearly didn’t write this post. In a week that has been filled with such awful sadness, I found it hard to look for the little things that have made me smile. But when such tragic events happen, it’s even more important to look for the good that is happening around us.


I seem to have read alot of menus the past fortnight. From the amazing menu at The Alchemist which is literally full of delightful cocktails. To being faced with 3 menus at Gusto in Knutsford the other evening.

My gorgeous girl getting her Star of the Week, for her attitude during SATS. I felt a little emotional sat in the school hall that day, as I would imagine this is her last ever Star of the Week. Plus in a few months I will be sat in the hall for her leaving assembly. In one way I am ready for her next school journey (plus NO MORE school runs), but on the other hand I will be incredibly sad saying goodbye to the school we have been a part of for 11 years.

My son made me the proudest mum on Thursday evening. He achieved his Black Belt in Karate after 6 years of hard work, determination and dedication to the sport. And not only did he get his Black Belt, but he also got the highest score EVER that they have given to a Black Belt in his class. ONE PROUD MUM.


Lots of wonderful chatter when I attended Blog On last weekend. It was my 3rd time going to the conference, and I love catching up with other bloggers, meeting new ones, and attending the fabulous sessions.


As little clothes as possible with the heatwave we have just had.
