The Brits, End Of Seasons and Broken Hard Drives Little Love 9/52

Happy Friday peeps… Another week has passed and its time for another little catch up with all the lovely bloggers that link up with Morgana and their #littleloves

I am not sure about you, but I am fed up with the rain! Its been constant all week and always seems to start on the school run! Why is that? Its been pretty hectic this week trying to fit back into the routine of everything, but I think we are getting there!

But without too much waffling, this is what I have been loving this week!

Read

Yesterday, I had to go and re-new my lenses in my glasses.. It was a pretty surreal event as I had to hand my glasses over which left me blind! Everything was a blur! I had both children with me and it wasn’t till H said he needed the loo that I felt really vulnerable! I ended up waiting well over the hour for them, so I took them to McDonalds for their tea, I tried to read a magazine to no avail! Quite worrying that my eyes have deteriorated so bad! **Sorry completely off topic there!**

Watched

I think this is going to play a huge part over most of the little loves this week… Madonna!!!!! Seriously I was mortified for her! What a trooper to get up an carry on, I think I would run away!!

Another biggy this week was the final of Broadchurch.. It was jammed packed and my heart was racing the whole way through! I am glad they cleared up the whole second murder because I don’t think I could of waited till season 3! I am pretty gutted of the outcome of the original case.. I don’t know what to think now!! Who actually killed the boy!?!?!

The Walking Dead was intense this week and I was screaming the whole way through! It was literally zombie galore and I just couldn’t take it! I cannot wait for this weeks episode! They left it on a cliff hanger as usual! My instincts tell me that all is not as it seems!

Heard

Ok, I watched the brits this week and I have expressed how much I absolutely love Sam Smith and Paloma Faith on this blog so many times, so this week its all about them! I adore the new song from Sam Smith and I just cannot get enough of it lately!

An old song from Paloma Faith but one of my favourites.. She deserved the brit this week and I think she is so bloody great!

Wore

Welly boots, the weather has been pants and its the first time I have dug them out this year.

Made

Since last week I have not picked my hooks up.. So I still have not reached the half way mark but I am sure it will happen really soon.

I haven’t made anything that is worth shouting about, apart from another Lasagne! I am getting better with age…

‘And lastly..’

This week my external HD packed up which means that all my photos/videos which I have taken for the last 6 years are actually not assessable as they are on there! I have stressed out so much this week and I am gutted that I could potentially loose the lot!! I am going to take it somewhere and hopefully they will be able to retrieve all the data! the hard drive isn’t that old either!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

A Mothers Worry…

Today is pre-op day for little H.. Its a weird feeling I have, I don’t want to leave him and I am scared for him.

When Moo had her operation on her ears, she knew what was happening. I explained everything to her as best as I could. She was full of questions and although I left out the injection bit she handled it really well. As I walked out of the room as she was fighting the sleepy drug I choked up and thought to my self, I could not put H through this. H is different, he is my baby and he is so small compared to Moo.

H is having something entirely different done and its a longer healing process and one I am not looking forward too. H is unaware of what is to come. I have tried to explain but he refuses to believe it and just thinks he is going to see a doctor. I don’t want to see him in recovery like I saw his sister. She was distraught and I couldn’t do anything to help her. I was a blubbering mess and I can’t control my emotions when I think of H having to go through it.

I keep relaying Moo’s operation round in my head which she had in December and I just can’t come to terms with H having to have one.. Its important he has it done it will be so much better for him but I just need a little nudge to say                  everything will be ok

Once its done, thats it, hopefully they both will never have to have any kind of operation again! Its stressful, the waiting is stressful, and now we are so close to D-Day it seems to be going rather slowly!

When I set out to be a parent, I didn’t think things like this would happen, I just thought I would have a child and everything would be ok and we could get on with life with no problems. But these little hiccups just make us all stronger and hopefully make life easier.

Its just not fair, not fair on Moo, or H to have to be put through it.. 

Living Arrows 7/52

I am a week behind on living arrows, I forgot to link up last week! I blame half term…

When I had children, within the first year I thought of all the things they would eventually play with and one of the things i was most excited about was Lego! When I was little I had a huge box full of the stuff and I absolutely loved it.. I didn’t care that it was all mixed up..

Being a parent of two who now have quite a collection of Lego, it bugs the hell out of me when its not together.. I know its all about imagination if its just sitting in a box, but I love to see them playing with the actual building, or the built cars. It takes me back to when I was a child when I sit there and rebuild the trashed Cinderella castle or the beaten up Police Station!

Its part of childhood, to trash it all though isn’t it?

Helping Hand {The Ordinary Moments}

Moo is obsessed with her cousin {she takes after me} Every time we are at my sisters she always wants to help out, apart from the nappy changes!! {wonder why?}

This week was half term so we all went over to my sisters which is quite rare now school gets in the way. After a day of playing find the eggs and a yummy dinner cooked by my sister it was time for the “helping hand”

I used to find bath time really stressful and I took having a bath for granted. Not actually having a bath now and having a step in shower makes bath time in our house even more stressful than I ever thought it could be! I jumped at the chance of bathing the kids at my sisters. First off Little O.. With the help of his cousins and brother of course!

The Week That I Captured 8/52

Half term week has been pretty busy! Its been a fun ole week and I am gutted its coming to a close! It was the week that I made the best lasagne to date too! Yummy

Anyhoo, without to much waffling this is what else we got up too!

Sunday

Went to the in-laws for dinner today and chilled when we got home.. I was oh so excited i didn’t need to do the full on routine of ironing uniforms!

On route we decided to stop off and have a look at some garden furniture! We ended up buying a four seater rattan set! Cannot wait for summer..

I dyed my hair once back.. Grey hairs were starting to make their way through!!

Monday

Today we went to my sister-in-laws for lunch.. We are only able to get together in the holidays so it was lovely to see everyone. It became a bit hairy when H decided to throw up everywhere!! It happened really quickly! He was complaining of ear ache which was probably the reason!

I had my first hot chocolate of the year from a home machine! Was devine.. Its kicked started my hot chocolate obsession and I have had plenty more this week!

I took Moo to her swimming lesson because as quickly as the sickness came on it quickly disappeared! Moo swam perfectly on her back and even moved up a group!!

Tuesday

I braved the soft play today and had hour in I regretted it! It was so busy!! We were supposed to meet someone there but they got lost so we ended up leaving early and going to theirs for lunch! It was a better atmosphere!!

Wednesday

We made another exit out of the house today and went to see my sister! Mr B was on late’s so I stayed for dinner! Hotdog and chips!! It was lush! I managed to bath the kiddies as well.. Since moving into the house we only have a shower so it was lovely for them to have a little play!

Thursday

Mr B was off today so we decided to take the kiddies bowling! We were planning a cinema trip too and decided as we had deliveries coming tomorrow we would go later on today! We saw Big Hero 6 and it was really good! Everyone enjoyed it, and for H’s first cinema trip it went down well!

Friday

I went to see my nan in hospital today.. It was lovely to see her progressing and doing so well!

Our garden furniture that we ordered on Sunday was also delivered which I am really excited about!

I had an eye appointment this evening and unfortunately I need new glasses! Bummer!!

Saturday

I went to see my other sister-in-law today as she had spontaneously bought a puppy!! Its the most adorable thing I have seen and I am am badgering Mr B for one now!

Show & Tell 1/52

I am determined to start a blog hop / link up that people will join in with.. I started one up in January but it fizzled out rather quickly when 1. it was too similar to someone else and 2. nobody popped by!

I think the best ones are when its not themed, you can just link up whatever you like. So this is where I step in and give you “Show and Tell”

This is the first week of “Show & Tell!”

All you have to do is link up a favourite post, old or new that you have written! The linky opens weekly and you have all week to join in! Feel free to add my badge if you like to the bottom of your post.

Little Love 8/52

Happy Friday peeps… Another week has passed and its time for another little catch up with all the lovely bloggers that link up with Morgana and their #littleloves

Slight change this week as the lovely Emma over at Life At The Little Wood is hosting!

So without too much waffling, this is what I have been loving this week!

Read

Gah, not much! I have not even been reading blog post this week as its been half term and I have really tried not to have the laptop/iPad/iPhone out!

I really must pick my book back up!!

Watched

The mister has been on late so of an evening I have been catching up on all things trashy! I watched the 2nd episode of Taking New York and I am still hooked by it..

I also watched Channel 5’s GPs: behind closed doors! rather amusing some of the cases that are shown!

Yesterday we took the kiddies to the cinema and watched Big Hero 6, I have to admit, I wasn’t expecting half of what happened to happen and had to wipe a stray tear away.. Was a really good film!

Heard

I could listen to the Nashville soundtrack, all day, every day and I absolutely adore this song, its just beautiful and one that has been playing a lot round here lately!

Wore

Firstly this is waaaayyyy to much information, but on Monday I wore a bucket load of H’s vomit! I was horrified, it came on so quick and as quickly as it came it went away! I have no idea what happened but for 5 minutes it was a never ending battle to try and stop it! I was also visiting my sister in law and it was smack bang in the middle of lunch!

I wore some bowling shoes this week! We decided to take the kiddies bowling and I really need to brush up on my bowling technique! I came second though..

Made

I am two rows away from entering the half way mark on my blanket! I am so excited to see all the colours together! I am going to write a post about the half way point very soon! {When I finally get there!!}

I didn’t actually make this but I did help.. I went to my sisters this week and she decided to make a cake and put it in the slow cooker for a few hours.. I see these recipes on Facebook but never think they will actually work or come out nice! But it did, and it tasted so soft and most! Definitely going to try it in my own slow cooker!

‘And lastly..’

Its been half term this week and it has flown by! I am so depressed that we only have two days left before all the school run business starts over! But I am sooooooo looking forward to the easter holidays!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

The Week That I Captured 7/52

I had a worry that when I was writing this up that I failed on taking photos, but surprisingly I did! It was a much better week of photo taking than last!

Sunday

Today I went to a party with Moo which was held at a theatre.. I was helper and a few other girls from Moo’s class went to celebrate with her little friend. They were all so well behaved and really enjoyed the performance of Milkshake Live!

I checked my lotto ticket, hoping I had woken as a millionaire but was very doubtful when my lucky dip numbers were so appalling! #betterlucknexttime

Once Moo was safely dropped of at home, I headed straight to the hospital to see my nan who sadly suffered a stroke last week. She was much more with it than the first time I saw her 2 days after it happened, so I left feeling really upbeat.. I actually took a gorgeous picture of the sunset setting over London, you can just picture the shard!

Monday

Back to school and I was feeling a little sorry for my self, so I got home and wrapped myself in a blanket with a cup of tea! I even had a doze while H was at play school!

Moo lost another tooth and I found it rather cute she can poke her tongue through the gap!

Beef stew for dinner which was a huge hit with my mum and her husband!

Tuesday

I was really tired today and was suffering with a terrible headache. When H arrived home from play school he asked to go to bed! So we both snuggled down and had an afternoon siesta! I felt worse for it after and came to the conclusion that these pretty lilies were down to me feeling so bad..

Wednesday

I was feeling much brighter today. I popped out to see my sister and had a spot of lunch with her.

I helped out at the school disco as they were short of helpers.. I was pretty amazed at some of the dance moves being thrown about! Moo was quite happy dancing on her own!

Thursday

H made me sit him on the side whilst I was cleaning the kitchen, we took some silly selfies.. Its amazing how quickly they catch onto these things!

I hid in the kitchen for a quick cup of tea in silence before the mayhem of dinner time started!

Friday

Last day of term!!! Its a good day.. I went to see Moo’s little production at school, did all my household chores and came straight home and got into our pjs! Bliss

Saturday

I went to see my nan again, I also saw my dad who travelled down from up north.. Its great seeing them but would be so much better on nicer terms obviously!

Valentines day passed without any recognition.. we don’t celebrate it, its all a bit commercialised if you ask me!

The Weekly Selfie {The Ordinary Moments}

Every week for the past 11 months I have tried to take a selfie with my nephew, some are not as good as others but I actually love the fact I can look back at them and see him grow. Some weeks I missed but I love the little collection I have with him.

I am not so sure why, but I feel a little connection with this little dude and I love going to see him every week.. Its one of my highlights..

I am hoping one day we can both look back at them and think that we had a little connection and hopefully still have it..

Show & Tell…

I am determined to start a blog hop / link up that people will join in with.. I started one up in January but it fizzled out rather quickly when 1. it was too similar to someone else and 2. nobody popped by!

I think the best ones are when its not themed, you can just link up whatever you like. So this is where I step in and give you “Show and Tell”

The reason behind this is H loves show and tell at play school and he always goes on about it and he is rather passionate about what he wants to show.. I thought it would be a good idea to convert that into show and tell blog posts?

Basically all you have to do is link up you best post of the week, month, year.. Whatever takes your fancy. It doesn’t have to be themed, it can be about anything you like.

It can be a recipe, a heart felt post, a humorous post or fashion..

It will be going live next Saturday, I would love it if you would let me know if you are going to join in and I will tweet a reminder! Hope to see you there!
