Half term adventures, wellies and pumpkins #LittleLoves

Firstly I want to apologise to the bloggers that linked up to last weeks Little Loves, as this is the first time I’ve opened up my laptop since Friday I haven’t been able to get round all the posts to read them and comment. I’ll make sure to check them out when I catch up on this weeks.

We are having a lovely half term so far, and I can’t believe how quickly it’s going! We’ve been staying in Cornwall with friends for the first half of the week and now we’re in the New Forest with the inlaws ready to celebrate N’s birthday at the weekend.

Welcome to this weeks Little Loves post!


I made full use of being a passenger on the journey to Cornwall and managed a few chapters of my book. I’m hoping I’ll get some more time to read over the next few days too.




As I mentioned in my post last week, I actually had to miss out last Thursday from my little loves as I didn’t have time to include it. The day was so much fun I’m shoe-horning it into this section! I watched some of my best blogger friends cook a meal with the new Tefal Cook4Me.

It looks like a space age slow cooker but it is actually more akin to a pressure cooker. It cooks fantastic meals in record time for minimum effort. We all had a blast and cooked things like Italian veggie soup, lamb casserole, butternut squash risotto, pears in red wine and a chocolate pudding and of course we got to enjoy our creations and chat over dinner too! It was such a blast.


Recognise any of these lovely ladies?

Jenny and I finished off the day with a glass of wine or two at Covent Garden.



Ever since I spotted the Mother tees on Selfish Mother’s instagram, I’ve been a fan. With £15 from the sale of each tee going to the charity Women for Women International what’s not to love really? I shared one on my birthday wishlist in the hope it might get bought for me, but when that failed I thought I’d better just go ahead and get it myself. You can see the full range and find out more here.



We’d stupidly forgotten to bring any wellies with us to Cornwall, we had boots but they just weren’t going to cut it, so the mister ventured out and picked some up. I’m was pleasantly surprised with the ones he chose for me!

They were perfect and got a lot of wear in the few days we were there. I think they’ll come in handy here in the New Forest too!


Lots of laughter and fun being had the last few days!



We support the charity World Vision, both personally and through this blog and one of their campaigns this time of year is the Carve a Heart campaign.

This Halloween – and every night – millions of children face a night of fear. It isn’t fun or exciting and it isn’t a choice for one night. 31 October is simply another night of facing hardship, loneliness, abuse, hunger or conflict.

By carving a heart in your pumpkin and texting HEART to 70060 to donate £5 you will be showing you care and help us to bring hope to even more children.


They were so much fun to do and I think they look great, we will definitely be doing the same next year.


and lastly..

We are having a lovely time away at the moment and I’m really enjoying the time out of the routine of work. So on that note I will end this week’s post.




Have a lovely weekend!

    I love your Mother top, have been coveting one of these for ages, but like you, no one is taking the hint! Maybe I’ll have to take a leaf from your book and treat myself. Great pumpkins too! #littleloves

    Hope you had a lovely time away. Love your new too, I had no idea so much went to charity! We were so disappointed in the pumpkin front, we left it until Saturday to buy them and they were all sold out… xxx

  • Louise @ Birds and Lilies - November 2, 2015 reply

    Glad you are having a lovely holiday. The pumpkins look great and such as good cause too. I have been wanting one of those Mother tops for ages; love the grey one, and love the wellies too! Totally wondering what book you are reading…. 😉 xx
