NEW SERIES, CHRISTMAS SONGS, TWINKLY LIGHTS | LITTLE LOVES 46/52

Its F R I Y A Y which only means one thing and thats a LittleLove round up with Coffee Work Sleep Repeat.

Its been a rather busy week here and I have had the dreaded lurgy! I have been so poorly that most evenings I have been in bed by six. I decided to take myself of to the doctors and ended up being given antibiotics for a nasty throat/chest infection! Im feeling a little bit more with it today! I apologise that this weeks Little Loves is not on top form!

Without too much waffling here is this weeks #LittleLove

This week G and H received a very important letter each from Father Christmas. It was so lovely as G is asking quite a few questions and I am struggling with some of the answers. These letter came at the right time. A month or so ago I did a review for Lapland Mailroom, you can read the post here. I was thoroughly impressed with the letters that were sent through and it has really put the magic back into it!

 

As I have been so ill, I have not actually watched that much TV this week. I am however so excited as today The Crown is back on Netflix! I’m eager to get watching as I loved the first series. I mentioned last week that I had started Suits and I am slowly making my way through series one. It took a back seat as I read on a Little Loves post last week {I can’t remember who it was – so apologies if it was you!} that channel four are playing Dawsons Creek from series one. I have been downloading an episode onto my iPad and watching it before I pick up G and H from school! Its a complete throwback to the 90’s!

 

Ed Sheeran has teamed up with Beyonce on his single Perfect. I detest it! I really don’t like the version and much prefer when its him on his own. Its been playing on most radio stations all week. Ive been switching off!

I have however been listening to lots of Christmas songs this week! I love a christmas record and now its December its all I want to listen too!

 

Pyjamas! Yep, I have literally been in them most days this week! Luckily Mr B was off to help with G and H. It sucks being ill! Last week G and H had to wear a christmas jumper or christmas colours to school. So to liven this post up a bit, here is both rocking there Christmas attire! Can you believe that G now fits in some of my clothes!!! She is in fact wearing my cardigan!

 

Last weekend we made the house all christmassy! I adore this time of year, and love sitting in the dark with the Christmas lights twinkling. We normally do not put them up this early but we have a few busy weekends ahead of us. It was the only weekend free we were able to decorate. I am glad we did, as I am very much in the Christmas mood now!

 

 

We don’t have much planned this weekend. Mr B is working so I tend to keep in the warm. We are celebrating my nephew and brother in laws birthday tomorrow evening but other than that I thinks its a weekend in, watching Christmas movies!

Whatever your up to, have a lovely weekend!

Every month I have decided to pop up a post all about my two. It only seems fitting considering this is a parenting blog. It’s rare that I blog about G and H specifically. I blog about how hard I find parenting and the struggles […]

ROYAL ENGAGEMENTS, THE SINNER, LITTLE MIX | LITTLE LOVES 45/52

Its F R I Y A Y which only means one thing and thats a LittleLove round up with Coffee Work Sleep Repeat.

We are officially on countdown to Christmas! We are now in December so I am in full Christmas mode! I am so excited for Christmas this year and I cannot wait for the 25th! Also anyone else think this year has flown by?!

My unexpected break has carried on throughout this week. I was planning to schedule a few posts this week but I got carried away with life in general and ended up getting to Thursday evening and realising I have not managed to do anything blog wise I wanted! I am hoping next week will be a bit better!

Without too much waffling here is this weeks #LittleLove

Shamefully nothing… Can we skip this bit? Again, I have been pretty poor at reading this week! I did read a chip shop menu, does that count?!?

 

Right, Morgana mentioned a programme on Netflix last week and I have managed to binge watch it and completed the 8 episode series in 3 days. It was so so good and would highly recommend it. The Sinner stars Jessica Biel who is just fantastic as lead and it has you gripped from the start. Young mother Cora Tannetti is overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage that leads her to commit a startling — and very public — act of violence, with no explanation as to why she did it. When Detective Harry Ambrose begins his investigation and grows obsessed with uncovering Cora’s hidden motive, the two work together to try to get deep into her psyche to learn about the violent secrets that are hidden in her past.  It leaves every episode on a cliff hanger so it has you wanting more which means you end up watching more and thats where the binge bit comes in. You must watch it!

Of the back of the Royal engagement announcement this week I decided to see what all the Megan Markle fuss was all about and start Suits. I am only 4 episodes in, but already really enjoying it. Its typical american TV, which I am a sucker for. Have you watched it?

 

I’m so excited that there is another royal wedding happening next year. I’ve really taken an interest in the monarchy since William and Kate. I absolutely love them and it makes me so happy that Harry is finally going to wed. Can’t wait to see the love story pan out! Anyone else as excited as I am?

I have also been listening to Little Mix thanks to G. She is a avid fan and is always asking me to turn up the music when they come on the Radio. Their new song is definitely a grower. I wasn’t too sure but the more I listen to it the more I am loving it.. Thanks to G of course as its all she listens too at the moment!

 

 

The full hog, winter coats, hats and gloves. Someone said I resembled an eskimo in the playground yesterday because I was so wrapped up. I actually didn’t t care if I did look like an eskimo because I was actually rather toasty. It was so so cold and waiting in the playground in the freezing weather is not what I call fun, so what better way than to kit yourself out in a huge coat, hat, fluffy hood and gloves!

I made a lasagne this week. Its been ages since I made one. My mum and her husband were round for dinner so I though I would serve one up. It actually came out really well. Im a bit hit and miss with lasagnes, they either come out really sloppy or look like something from a school dinner. But I managed to make a damn good lasagne! No photos sorry!

I have also been making loads of plans for the schools christmas bazaar. Its being held next week and as chair of the PTA I always feel a lot pf pressure when it comes to big events! We have everything sorted now {just need to finish up a few loose ends!} and hopefully it will all go ahead without any hiccups! Im actually looking forward to breathing a sigh of relief when its over!

 

 

Last week, I was feeling pretty low. I made a comment about it in my last Little Loves post and I just want to say, thank-you to all those that commented such lovely comments. I’m feeling much better this week and a lot brighter. Sometimes life is hard.

 What ever your up to, have a wonderful weekend!

MOTHERLAND, POPPIES, BIRTHDAYS | LITTLE LOVES 42/52

Its F R I Y A Y which only means one thing and thats a LittleLove round up with Coffee Work Sleep Repeat.

I have slowly managed to get back into a routine this week. Its been a quick week and I can’t believe its Thursday and I am getting ready to look back at the little bits i have loved this week! G turned nine and we had a really lovely few days celebrating. We had family over on Sunday and we went out for dinner on Monday and it was lovey. G looked so grown up and I still can’t quite believe I have a nine year old!!

Without too much waffling here is this weeks #LittleLove

Not much.. Been slacking this week! Apologies! Will try harder next week…

 

 

I have watched lots this week. Firstly as I said earlier G turned nine! I watched her open her presents with such excitement! This year all she wanted was a FitBit {from us} so I was so pleased when the she opened it up. She really didn’t expect it and it was lovely to see her face. I don’t think she expected it to be honest as we kept saying how expensive they were.

I have managed to catch up all all TV. I started to watch Motehrland on BBC. Everyone seems to be going on about it at shcool, Twitter and Facebook. I gave in and downloaded them and have managed to get through half the series. Its hilarious and definitely a must watch! The whole series is on iPlayer.

Another recommendation this week was the Louis Theroux Talking To Anorexia, again on the BBC and it was a really good watch. Its so sad that young people {and old} do it and it was such a insight into what they go through. Its like a compulsive disorder. Its not all about sticking your fingers down your throat either. It goes a lot deeper mentally and it was a really good insight to what sufferers with Anorexia go through. Definitely catch it if you have not already.

I am still listening to Sam Smith most days. The album is so good!

 

 I went shopping this week and I am building up my collection of scarfs. I like to wear them a lot nowadays as it covers up my scar on my neck and saves the questions. They had a pop-up shop for the British Legion. I noticed a few weeks ago they had a beautiful poppy scarf and made a mental note that I should add it to my growing collection. I managed to pick it up this week and I am loving it. Its so long and covers my neck, which is perfect!

 

I made G’s birthday cake this week. She asked for a Victoria Sponge, Buttercream and lots of sprinkles. I thought it would be a bit plain, so I made a nine out of chocolate sprinkles and bought some pretty unicorn icing decorations to go round the side of the cake. I also added a few Shopkins to the top. A bit of a mismatched but she loved it non the less AND it tasted delicious! Big hit!

 

We have no plans this weekend. I am looking froward to relaxing if I am honest. This week has taken it out of me and I am looking forward to having some sort of lie in and enjoying the slower paced days!

What ever your up to, have a wonderful weekend!

PLANT PAL | REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY!

I love having plants around the house, but I tend to fail at keeping them alive. I buy them with all the intentions of keeping them well watered but I let myself and the plant down by forgetting too water them regularly. I’d been asked […]
