Yorkshire Sculpture Park, The Princess Bride, and far too much chocolate #LittleLoves

What a lovely Easter break we’ve had! I must admit I was rather sad to wave off the girls back to school on Tuesday. Normally I can’t wait to drop them off but not this time, I think we managed the work/fun juggle well, not sure how the summer holidays will pan out though. I hope you had fun over the Easter Bank Holiday and didn’t eat too much chocolate, who am I kidding, I bet you ate loads, I know I did!

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 decided to give The Portable Veblen by Elizabeth McKenzie another try from reading a few reviews I thought I’d really enjoy this book but I’m finding it hard going. If I’m still struggling with it after the weekend I think I’ll have to let it go and move on.

I’m so excited to share a campaign I worked on with M&S, you can see the feature on their site here and my blog post here. If you follow me on Instagram you might remember that last month I shared behind the scenes of this shoot on my Instagram stories. Hannah and I enjoyed a day at Bartle Hall as they very kindly let us use one of their rooms and venue to take the photos. 

 

 

watched

I remember watching The Princess Bride after borrowing the video from my cousins and adoring it. It’s the perfect mix of humour, adventure and romance and such a fun watch. Of course it’s aged, the special effects are laughable and it’s very much part of a genre of ’90s family films. I decided over the Easter weekend to introduce my girls to it and they loved it just as much as I did, despite the fact that it’s now thirty years old!

Any more Princess Bride fans out there??

Netflix wise I’ve binged my way through Jane the Virgin over the past few weeks. Someone recommended it after reading my Top 5 Netflix Comedies post and I wasn’t disappointed. It’s perfect for a binge watch and a remedy to the more difficult watch 13 Reasons Why that I watched previously! Also Pretty Little Liars is back after the mid season break, so I of course watched the first episode and still don’t have a clue what’s going on!

On Good Friday we made the trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It’s a place I’ve wanted to visit for absolutely ages and lets just say it didn’t disappoint.

As you can see it was rather windy!

On Easter Sunday we enjoyed the traditional homemade roast lamb dinner, followed by a ridiculous amount of chocolate eggs!

This week my girls have been back at school and in their summer dresses. I love this time of year, no more ironing shirts and pleated skirts! My favourite summer dresses are from M&S and are the more traditional style ones.

I’ve been catching up with the Hashtag Authentic podcasts, first with Kat Molesworth, that you can find here and with Xanthe Berkeley, that you can find here

As for music, I’ve been enjoying Jack Garratt again this week

 

and lastly

Things are moving forward with our new home, we managed to get in and get blinds and shutters ordered ready for when we move in. We should have a confirmed moving date soon, but it looks like it will be mid May! I can’t wait to show you our new place. This weekend we are heading down south to the New Forest where the mister and her sister are running a triathlon. I’m so looking forward to seeing family and I’m crossing my fingers for a bit of sunshine too!

Here are my favourites from this week’s #LittleLoves community on Instagram,

    Upon your recommendation we’ve started watching 13 Reasons Why and although we’re only a few episodes in I’m gripped! That’s so lovely you had such a fun Easter weekend – can’t beat a weekend with a roast and lots of chocolate eggs. Also, thank you so much for the Instagram #littleloves feature 🙂 #LittleLoves

    I love the Yorkshire sculpture park. Looks like they have some new ones I haven’t seen. We’ll have to plan another visit soon! The m&s campaign looks great. I listened to the hashtag authentic with kat Molesworth last week and this week I listened to blogtacular with Sara Tasker. Do you watch Kat on YouTube?

    We have the same Heard this week! I loved the episode with Kat – she mentioned how she’d like to do a workshop in her home town and I really wish she would as it’s local to me.

    I seriously need to catch up on the new series of Jane the Virgin. I’ve only managed one episode so far.

    I decided to join in via a YouTube video this week for my first ever Little Loves so I hope you don’t mind. I was inspired by Tigerlilly Quinn.

    Looks like a pretty lovely week! Hope you have a great weekend in the New Forest! I dont think I’ve ever seen Princess Bride!?

  • Jenny - April 21, 2017 reply

    I already gushed about you on the your dress post but you are so stunning girl. Perfect model every time! Flawless. Looks like you made the most of the easter holidays can you believe it we are still on it for us until Monday. Feels like we are the last standing. We have a packed weekend to go though so not complaining. That park looks amazing so fun and quirky. Love it. #littleloves

    Such a lovely round up Morgana, such a happy post. I felt the same this time with George when I had to go back to work. Enjoy your little break x

  • kara - April 21, 2017 reply

    You are just so stunning Morgana, I shall be reading the M&S post in a min.

    Addison is desperate to be in her summer dresses but the weather has not been good to us this week.

  • Sadie - April 21, 2017 reply

    You look great in the M&S shoot, what a great thing to be involved in. And that sculpture park looks incredible, especially with the scenery as a backdrop. Very cool.
    Oh, & I love Jack Garratt!

    Love those pics of you, will have to go have a look at your other post. I used to love Princess Bride, I’ve never watched it with my two, but my little nieces are crazy about it. Have a lovely time in the New Forest and good luck to your hubby x

    What an interesting set of sculptures you’ve featured and over indulging on chocolate is understandable.

    I finally saw The Princess Bride for the first time over Easter because it’s such a talked about film. Sorry to say I didn’t see what all the fuss was about and found it quite cringey. I suppose others feel the same about The Goonies and ET?

    I remember watching the princess bride with my hubby.. It was an awesome film but I bet the book is better as always.

    The sculpture gardens look beautiful just the sort of place I would like to potter around in, there’s one near here but children are not allowed on the site which seems an awful shame. I’m with you on the school dresses, I love the traditional look and uniforms are so much easier in the summer.

    The Yorkshire Sculpture Park looks amazing, I’ll have to admit it to our list of places to visit now the weather is starting to get better. I saw your pics on the M&S website, you look fabulous and what a great campaign to be part of. I have never seen The Princess Bride, not quite sure why but I’ll have to give it a go with O. xx

    We really do have the same taste in ‘heard’ don’t we? How funny! Loved to see you posing in new dresses – well done you. Particularly like that blue one on you – the colour is great. I can’t bring myself to watch 13 Reasons Why at the moment, for obvious reasons but my girls have so feel that I should in some way, even if it’s just so that we can discuss it together. Tricky one to watch I imagine 🙁 xx

    It looks like you had a great day out at the sculpture park with plenty to see. I will have to check out the Princess Bride, its not a film that i have come across before.

    We are TV twins! I have ploughed through Jane the Virgin and have Pretty Little Liars planned to watch this evening. Hubby and I started to watch 13 Reasons Why and I’m not sure if I want to watch it but now can’t stop! Those photos of you are gorgeous! x
