Welcome to this weeks Little Loves post!
Firstly a big thanks to Sian over at Potty Mouthed Mummy for hosting last week while I was away in France. I’m sorry I haven’t been around and read everyone’s posts but I’ll make up for it this week!
I’ve decided to combine this week and last week into my Little Loves so I can share a little about my holiday.
Being on holiday and my girls being old enough to play independently I was able to plough through a few books. Firstly, You Had Me at Hello, which was a really easy read and while not my favourite it was enjoyable and a perfect light holiday read.
I also enjoyed Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I’ve read another book of hers previously and enjoyed it so when I was asked if I’d like to be sent this book I of course jumped at the chance. It took me a few chapters to get into it but once I did I was totally hooked and devoured it in just a couple of sittings.
Watching my girls play with their cousins was wonderful last week. Now that the littlest ones are 2 years old they are all able to join in and it’s a joy to watch.
This week we’ve binge watched Game of Thrones, The Following and The Affair, catching up on what we’d missed as well as this weeks episodes. They were all worth waiting for, that’s for sure! Having said that I really didn’t miss TV while we were away and it was nice to spend the evenings chatting and playing games with the mister’s family instead of just sitting silently on the sofa watching something.
My sandals! I took a few pairs of shoes away with me (as you do) but lived in my Birkenstocks. I absolutely adore them, and yes I now even have tan lines from them! Not that you can see them in this photo as I took this one on our first day.
We all wore sunscreen and of course slathered on the after sun at the end of the day. I know I go on about Green People, but I cannot recommend their sun range enough. As a family with sensitive skin, sun care can be really tricky but Green People have it sussed and we had no reactions to it, and I had no prickly heat, woo! The after sun got passed around the whole extended family most evenings!
All holiday we had the Into the Woods soundtrack on non-stop. I swear I know all the words to all the songs now, I even woke up singing one yesterday morning! I will not subject you to a song from the soundtrack, partly because I need a bit of a detox from it (!) but also I want to share the new song from Lianne La Havas. I adored her debut album so I’m really happy she’s released some new material.
Um… memories? Not made much else if I’m completely honest! The girls, however, have been busy with their Lego all week and it’s been set up on the dining room table every day, we’ve even eaten meals around it!
Noo has been off school this week for halfterm as well so it’s been a bit of a limbo week for me work wise. With E being at nursery for a couple of days I have really enjoyed spending some one on one time with N, something I rarely get to do these days.
We spent Thursday at the library and museum in our town and then I took her out to lunch at Turtle Bay – which she loved.
And of course, I just can’t resist ending with a quote..
Have a lovely weekend!
