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