Our new home #LittleLoves

We’ve moved house!! Hurrah!

You’ll have to bear with me, this won’t be my most detailed Little Loves as we have no wifi and it’s half term so I’ve got my girls. I’m sorry to the bloggers that linked up last week as I didn’t get a chance to go round and read all of the posts. I’m writing this in a cafe with very limited time while the mister takes time off work to have the girls for the morning, so I’m trying to cram in as much work as possible. Let’s be completely honest, my brain is rather mashed from all the stress so forgive my in-eloquence. Still with me?

Here we go then, are you ready for some positivity? 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.

Very little! I managed to finish The Cows, by Dawn O’Porter just before we moved. Aside from that the only thing I’ve read is the instructions for the washing machine! I loved The Cows and finished it in a matter of days. It’s an easy read and especially captured my imagination as a blogger. One of the central characters is a blogger and there is a lot of content around the impact of social media on our lives as women. This books deserves an indepth review that I in my current sleep deprived frazzled self just cannot deliver at the moment. Just take my word for it when I say it’s good! When I’ve found it in one of the boxes I’m going to re-read The Handmaid’s Tale. Did you watch the first installment of the adaptation on Channel 4 on Sunday?

 

watched

House of Cards is back! As I mentioned earlier we still have no wifi so the mister has managed to download the whole season elsewhere and so we’re rationing it out and limiting ourselves to one episode a night. I’ve blogged about House of Card and my favourite US Dramas on Netflix so head over and have a read if you’re looking for your next binge watch.

 On Saturday we had a little treat of lunch on a canal boat. It was booked for us as a Christmas present from my dad and we finally got round to using it. We had a lovely day and the girls were fascinated by the locks we had to pass through, watching the water levels going up and down.

We’ve been very busy this week making our new house into a home, there are still so many boxes and mess everywhere but I’m so happy that we’re in and the girls have been loving playing out in the sunshine. I swear E has spent most of the time scooting up and down our driveway!

I’m working with a lovely clothing company at the moment and squeezed in a mini shoot for them on Sunday in between church and packing the kitchen! I can’t wait to share the photos with you. Here’s a tiny preview, this photo was actually taken by N, my nine year old who has now decided she wants to be a photographer!

 

heard

I’ve been listening to the radio in the kitchen quite a bit this week, so it’s been the eclectic sounds of BBC 6 Music that’s provided this weeks soundtrack for me. Here are a few stand out tracks that had E and I dancing around.

I caught Haim on the radio 1 breakfast show while driving yesterday morning and they sounded like so much fun. Listening to them chat reminded me how long it had been since I’d listened to any of their music, so of course as soon as I got to Starbucks they were my working soundtrack.

and lastly

Sorry, for the lack of photos in this post, especially for the lack of new house spam, I’m sure I’ll make it for it once we’re a bit more settled and have wifi again.

Normally I share a collage of nine of my favourites from the #littleloves community on Instagram but I’ve changed things up and now just choosing one each week, and probably a few more on Stories. If you’re on Instagram and want to join in, it’s so easy just use the hashtag #littleloves on any photo that shows something little that you love – so that can be pretty much anything! I then share my favourites from the week on here and on my Instagram every Friday.

    So pleased to hear you are into your new house it’s so stressful but also lovely to have that blank canvas to work out where everything can go! We moved 2 years ago and there’s still so much to do here but it’s still exciting to add our touch. The cows sounds like a good read! I like haim too though haven’t listened recently. Great photo by N she’s got a good eye! Have s great weekend x

    Great photograph by your daughter! I’ve got one who fancies herself as a photographer too but I really don’t think that she will agree to taking any lifestyle shots of me lol! Glad you finally moved Morgana – what an ordeal it has been! Looking forward to seeing some shots of your new home. So exciting making it all homely and lovely isnt it? xx

    Oh hooray for moving, I bet you have so much to unpack, do, decorate and ideas flowing through your head like mad. Good to have half term to settle in together as a family too. I love moving!!! IS it starting to sink in that you have moved always takes me a bit to feel like home somewhere new. Can’t wait to see it. Enjoy the weekend ahead with the girls. #littleloves

    Great news on the house move, hope things are all running smoothly and you are settled in soon enough. I can’t imagine not having wifi, that’s the ultimate nightmare for a blogger isn’t it?
    Wow love that you got to eat lunch on a canal boat, I’ve always wanted to go on a canal boat holiday or even just ride on one for a little while, I’m sure that was lovely for you x

    I’m so excited for you to be in your new home, I saw your barge trip over on IG and stories. It looked fab. We were at a local lock on Sunday and George was mesmerised by the workings of a lock. I hope things get a little easier and you have everything setup soon. x x

    Ahh it must be a nightmare with no wifi! Can’t wait for new house spam!

  • Chloe Ciliberto - June 3, 2017 reply

    You must be so relieved you’re finally in! I hate the actual process of moving house but love the unpacking and making it a home. The canal boat trip looks so lovely! Your daughter has got such an eye for photography already. Thats hands down better than any flat lay I’ve ever taken. I’m definitely adding that book to my ‘to read’ list. It sounds right up my street at the moment. I hope you have a great week unpacking and settling in! #littleloves
