A swimming meet, networking and enjoying a little bit of sunshine #LittleLoves

What a whirlwind of a week! From a busy weekend at a swim meet in Harrogate to hitting the ground running on Monday and not stopping. Apologies to the lovely bloggers that linked up their own Little Loves last week, I’ve not got round and commented on all your posts this week. I will do better this coming week and make it a priority! Right, lets get onto the wonderful little things from this week,…

Watching the Commonwealth Games, working hard and starting a new book #LittleLoves

I’ve had such a productive week work wise and it’s been really enjoyable to get back on it after the Easter hols, but I feel that all I’ve really done is stare at my computer screen tap tapping away. It’s been good to write this little loves to remind me that I have done a bit more than that this week. It’s also shown me that I need to get my camera out more –…

You are the expert – respect your value!

I don’t really understand why I do it but I rarely appreciate the knowledge or experience I have. I’m quick to downplay any value I have by throwing up a name of someone better than me or highlighting an area I don’t know much about.

The Easter weekend, Cedar Farm and a little bit of baking #LittleLoves

In spite of that little disappointment we’ve really enjoyed having some family time together and spent a day at Cedar Farm over Easter weekend. I used to go quite…

Hallway inspiration for our new build family home

We moved into our new build home about ten months ago and I’m really happy with how it’s coming together. We stuck with the white walls and haven’t made any major changes, it’s just been about getting the right furniture and styling the rooms. We’ve gone for a mid century modern kind of vibe, something that I’m currently writing about, so keep an eye out for it. One area of the house I am struggling…

Altrincham Market, butterfly buns and A Wrinkle In Time #LittleLoves

This has to have been the fastest week ever. I’ve found it so hard to write this post as I can hardly think what I’ve done each day! I do remember last Saturday though, we had a great time exploring in Altrincham, especially Altrincham Market. It was a foodie’s paradise. We feasted on sourdough pizza and Oreo vegan brownies, and came home with a fresh sourdough loaf and more dairy free and egg free treats.…
