Welcome to this weeks Little Loves post!
I’m fully bracing myself for an attack of the green eyed monster when I read all the lovely tales of bank holiday adventures in my fellow littleloves blogs. I wish I could write the same but alas I spent Friday to Monday in bed ill. Boo. So, this is definitely a chance for me to focus on the little bits of good that made up my week and forget about the plans we cancelled, sob.
Look, look it’s my friend Aimee’s book in print!
I’ll be doing a full review of it next week but if you can’t wait for that, and who can? Then just head straight on over to Amazon.
Apart from magazines and blog posts I’ve not read much else this week at all.
Being confined to the sofa or my bed over the long weekend meant that I watched a whole lot of Netflix!
I binged watched the whole season of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and caught up on Once Upon a Time much to my husband’s amusement. To be honest, I think he’s just relieved I haven’t made him watch them with me!
I can’t let this section pass without mentioning THAT episode of Greys Anatomy. If you haven’t seen it yet (or couldn’t care less!) you’ll want to scroll past this bit..
Honestly I very used to Greys making me cry but this was too much. Poor Mer, what is she going to do? No Cristina, and now no Derek *wails inconsolably* Oh Shonda Rimes, what are you doing to us??
My ‘jamas and dressing gown for most of this week!
On Thursday I popped into New Look and checked out their Petite section after being to happy with my last purchases, especially my black dungarees! I also picked up a bikini while I was there. I’m not 100% confident with the way I look at the moment, but I’m not going to let that stop me wear a bikini on the beach in France – I’m fed up of waiting until I look a certain way – that day may not come and I’m not going to waste any more time!
When I was a teenager a friend of mine used to make me lots of mixed CDs with a lot of American alternative indie music. He really had a massive influence on the bands I like and even who I listen to now (well, if you don’t count Taylor Swift!). While on Spotify this week a track from one of those CDs came on and I rediscovered a band I love. Their music has been so good to work to this week.
Explosions in the Sky
I haven’t made a thing! E on the other hand has been busy playing with her Barbies, Shopkins and Playdoh. She’s been loving wrapping up the Shopkins in Playdoh and helping the Barbies to open them! So cute to watch, not that she likes me watching her though! Are your kids like that? E gets embarrassed if she catches me peering in to see what she’s up to.
I had lovely plans for going to a bluebell wood and having a picnic just like we did last year (I blogged about it here) but apart from leaving the house to take the girls to the park we didn’t manage to do anything. I felt bad for the girls, but my husband told me to stop worrying and to actually notice how much fun they were having just playing together at home. I think I fall into this trap a lot, I build up what we should be doing in my head so much that I don’t appreciate what actually happens! This quote is quite apt I think!
