It was so sunny last weekend where we live and it felt good to get out and enjoy the sun. I’m sure we weren’t the only ones to make the most of the dry weather to get out in the garden and have a tidy up. It’s just a shame that the sun didn’t stick around and we’ve had grey rainy days from Monday onwards. I think I forget how much it rains in Spring! I’ve had my head in my laptop for much of the week so I don’t have many lovely photos to share with you but stick with me, I still have Little Loves to share.
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 really struggled to get into any books this year, which is so very unlike me. I’ve started three books and put them all down with out finishing. I decided to give The Bricks that Built The Houses a try, a book I picked up on a while in Waterstones earlier in the month, and I absolutely love it. At first I worried the lyrical detail might become a bit too much but actually it’s that very specific style of writing that has drawn me in. You might know Kate Tempest as a spoken word poet, if you’ve not heard of her she’s worth a Google.
Line Of Duty is back and it is as spectacular as ever. We have been huge fans of this series since the first season back in 2012 when it was still on BBC2 and we were so excited for its return.
I have binged my way through the brand new season of Netflix comedy, Grace and Frankie. I adored every second of it and was gutted when it came to an end. If you’re looking for some comedy to watch on Netflix have a read of my post My Top 5 Netflix Comedies You Have To Watch
I’ve been working on The Start Up Life section of my blog this week and I hope to grow it more over the next year. I’m going to be sharing monthly Start Up Stories from businesses set up and run by parents and also look to add more posts about running a creative business, social media tutorials and much more. I’m really excited about this new project and hope you will be too.
I spent much of the weekend in clothes covered in paint and dirt from the garden! We hired a van and had a big clear out of the garage and the garden and I was so impressed with how much we got done and how good it all looks now. I also finished off painting the woodwork in the hallway and stairs. It looks so much brighter now.
I did get to have a rest on Sunday for Mothers Day though and enjoyed lunch out with the family. Wasn’t the weather glorious too. Loved wearing my sunglasses (as did my girls!) and having fun outside without having to wear coats!
E especially loved that she could wear her dress without tights or leggings!
I’ve been loving Sara Tasker’s podcast Hashtag Authentic, especially this one with Tara Swiger about finding your tribe and focusing on who your audience or customers are rather than trying to please everyone. I found it so helpful and freeing to be reminded not to stress about people unfollowing and unsubscribing but to just focus on your content and attracting your people.
Thanks for all your kind wishes last week about the house valuation. I’m excited to share that we are going ahead with a part exchange on a new build, one that is already built and ready to move into. As you can imagine I’m very happy but trying to rein it in until we actually have all the paper work done and the keys in hand. It’s going to be a few busy few weeks!
