The second week of our Easter Holidays is almost over, but we’ve got the lovely Bank Holiday weekend ahead of us first. This week has been split between working and family fun, with my two going to a holiday club each morning. They’ve had a blast and I’ve been able to put a few hours in before picking them up and spending time together. We’ve squeezed in a shopping trip, they’ve been on a bike ride with their dad and we’ve had a big baking session.
Are you ready for more? Grab a cuppa and enjoy my Little Loves, don’t forget you can read lots of other bloggers’ Little Loves by clicking on the linky at the end.
I’ve finished The Bricks That Built The Houses and after struggling to get into it at first I completely fell in love with the lyrical prose of Kate Tempest. Spinning a tale around several twenty-somethings in London it was a lifestyle that lots can probably relate to, though for this country girl it was a different world.
We love going to Manchester as a family and I’ve shared our favourite places to go to in this alternative family guide on the National Rail Cards blog – Manchester – An Alternative Family Day Out
Line of Duty.. I mean, there are no words. I promised I wouldn’t put any spoilers on here, so I’ll just leave this here.
As for Netflix the mister and I were happy to see that season 2 of The Get Down is now on. We’re trying not to just binge our way through it. As a music fan AND a Baz Luhrmann fan this programme is a big favourite of mine.
We had a big baking session last weekend for a friend’s baby shower. We made a huge dairy free chocolate cake and of course while we had everything out on the table we just had to make some biscuits, oh and some cupcakes! The girls had a friend over later in the day so they had a great time decorating all the biscuits, of course unicorns and rainbows featured heavily!
The girls came along with me to the baby shower while their dad went to the pub for the father to be’s shower! It was lovely catching up with friends I hadn’t seen in a while and the weather was simply beautiful. The highlight for my two was getting to design baby gros. I’m sure you can guess which two are theirs!
No fancy outfits shots from me this week, instead I’ll share about my girls. Look at this sparkle-tastic H&M dress that E bought with her Easter money from her Grandparents. She’s desperate to wear it, I’ve managed to put her off until Easter Sunday, if she had it her way she’d be in the muddy back garden with it on!
I’ve also taken the time to look through the girls wardrobes and realised they’re both in need of some new clothes. Thank goodness for Ebay and the pre-loved Mini Boden FB group. I think I’ll be stashing the 11-12 floral dungarees for a while though, even I could probably squeeze into them – they’re huge!
I came across Amber Run on one of my Spotify Daily Playlists and I’ve been enjoying them all week.
We’ve also had the Moana soundtrack playing a whole lot too and I don’t think we’re alone on that one!
We are another step closer to our new home and should be moving in a few weeks time! I guess I better get started on the packing!
