THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR, GRACE MITCHELL, NEW GLASSES | LITTLE LOVES 22/52

THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR, GRACE MITCHELL, NEW GLASSES | LITTLE LOVES 22/52

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 back in a routine and back to school. The half term flew by and I am feeling a little blue that we are no longer enjoying ourselves at Center Parcs with all the family. Its oddly quite when we come back as its always great fun to be around everyone.

This week I seem to have lost a day. G and H went back to school on Tuesday and I still think its Wednesday! But no, the weekend is here and we have a busy one. We have early celebrations for H’s birthday next week.. I have a very excited soon to be six year old on my hands!

Without too much waffling here is this weeks #LittleLove

New book. The Couple Next Door. I bought this a few weeks ago in Costco and I have only just started it. I am enjoying it so much. Its one you can’t put down and I can’t see it taking me long to finish. Its definitely got the suspense of a thriller and I find myself wanting to find out more. Which makes it very hard to put down.

 

I’ve been checking in with Katie’s {mummydaddyme} June Vlogs. I was amazed to find out that just a few days, after getting back from a holiday in Dubai, she moved house! I’ve been loving the DITL vlogs. Below is Day 5, the day they moved!

 

Moving onto TV, I watched the final of Prison Break. I am gutted its come to an end, again!! But I am pleased how it ended. This season was a bit out there, but I really enjoyed it. Did You watch it? What did you think?

I have been watching {the trashiest of the trash} Love Island. I didn’t know what it is, but I bloody love this programme. Its cringy, but for some reason, I just tune in every night!

Orange Is The New Black is back on Netflix today! Its been ages, cannot wait to see what happens after that cliff hanger of an episode!

There is something rather lovely about this cover. I love the original, but I am loving this slow paced version. Thanks to Love Island playing this, I have not stopped listening to it.

I had to go to the optician last weekend and I ended up having to get a new pair of glasses. To be honest I was expecting it as my eyes have deteriorated over the last year.  I currently have Raybans and I love them so I wanted to get similar ones. It was pretty typical that they had none I liked, all tortoise shell which is obviously making a huge comeback with glasses because thats all that was there! I came across gorgeous pair, with a rather large price tag, but Mr B agreed that because I wear them all the time I was able to get them. It was actaully Mr B that found them, not realising that they were in fact Chanel! Waiting on them to arrive, but I am sure I will stick an obligatory “new glasses selfie” over on Instagram!

Nothing to shout about this week {again!} I will be making H’s birthday cake next week! H is going to be six, SIX! Still cannot quite believe it and I am still wondering where the last six years have gone! I am not sure what cake I am making yet, but I am sure to add it to the “made” section next week!

I have a hospital appointment today. Its a biggy, so I always get so nervous. Ive had a headache for the best part of the week as I worry myself silly over them. Fingers crossed I get the all ok. I hate these appointments as they always manage to find something I have missed!

I have started a weekly Mini-Series called For The Love Of, I know a few people have read it and said they like the idea of it being a linky!  If you would like to share with me what you have been enjoying, next weeks topic is Vlogs, just pick three TV Vlogs your loving this month and write a brief description about it. I am always looking for new ones to watch so if you want to join in you can! The topics change weekly from Vlogs, Blogs, Instagram and TV.. If its your thing I would love to see you link up!

What ever your up to, have a wonderful weekend!

I am linking up with the ever so lovely Morgana over at her new blog Coffee Work Sleep Repeat  for this linky,

A WEEK AWAY FROM THE NORM

A WEEK AWAY FROM THE NORM

Last week, we had the most amazing week away from the norm. We packed up and headed for Elvedon Forest. G and H had been on countdown for a whole year and it was finally time to spend some quality time together as a family. […]

MAKING MEMORIES, SOUND OF SILENCE, SUMMER HATS | LITTLE LOVES 21/52

MAKING MEMORIES, SOUND OF SILENCE, SUMMER HATS | LITTLE LOVES 21/52

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 fun filled week here as we have spent 7 days away in the beautiful forest of Elvedon at Center Parcs. We are unfortunately leaving today which is rather sad as I have had so much fun, away from the norm, spending time with the family.

I want to apologise for not commenting on many Little Loves post last week, normally I have a full day to check in with everyone that linked up with Morgana, but we have been rather busy and I just have not had the time.

Without too much waffling here is this weeks #LittleLove

Read

I’ve been ploughing my way through Hurrah For Gin this week. I wasn’t intending to do much reading but I have sometimes sat and watched G, H and Mr B in the pool and managed to get a few sneaky pages read.

I have also read an itinerary of all the days events. We booked in advance for most of the activities so it was good to have the Center Parcs app to hand to remind us of what our days consisted of!

Watched

I’ve not watched much TV this week that qualifies me to shout about. I won’t lie I have caught up daily on my laptop with Corrie. Something I can’t miss! We have been watching TV of an evening but due to only having 5 channels its basically been mainstream TV. Its weird not having a whole selection of channels, but its been really lovely to.

I have watched G and H’s relationship grow into something lovely this week. We have had the odd argument, but G has really looked out for her brother. Taking him down the water slides and generally being a really lovely big sister.

Heard

Wore

G has a new hat. This hat looks rather lovely on her and she really knows how to rock it. I absolutely love this photo of her and its definitely one I am going to get printed. Its not very often I get pictures printed out anymore but this deserve a space on my side board.

We have also had to wear lots of suncream. The weather could not have been better. Its been glorious. We have had a few cloudy muggy days, but for the majority of the week we have had high temperatures, and lots of sunny spells.

Made

Memories. So many memories. We as as a family of four don’t actually go away that often. The last two years we as a family of 14 have been away and made memories. Its been such a lovely week. Lots of laughter, lots of fun and lots of bonding. Its definitely been a holiday we won’t forget soon. We are very lucky to have this time away with everyone and its something I won’t take for granted. G and H have loved every minute of it. I have loved every minute of it.

And lastly..

I have started a weekly Mini-Series called For The Love Of, I know a few people have read it and said they like the idea of it being a linky!  If you would like to share with me what you have been enjoying, next weeks topic is TV, just pick three TV programmes your loving this month and write a brief description about it. I am always looking for new ones to watch so if you want to join in you can! The topics change weekly from Vlogs, Blogs, Instagram and TV.. If its your thing I would love to see you link up!

THESE TWO | MAY

THESE TWO | MAY

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 […]

KEEPING YOUR SKIN PROTECTED IN THE SUN

KEEPING YOUR SKIN PROTECTED IN THE SUN

Since I was diagnosed with Skin Cancer I now take extra care all year round. I apply a factor 50 cream 365 days of the year. Sounds extreme, but the winter sun is just as powerful as the summer sun. There are two different types […]

FOR THE LOVE OF | INSTAGRAM

FOR THE LOVE OF | INSTAGRAM

I am back this week with my mini-series For The Love Of. This week its all about Instagram. I love this social networking platform and I don’t use it half as much as I should, but I love keeping up to date with all my favourites. So here are my three for this month.

COFFEE WORK SLEEP 

A post shared by Morgana (@coffeeworksleep) on

You will find lots of family, lifestyle and interior pictures on Morgana’s feed. They are pretty lovely photos and her account has to be a top 10 favourite. I have been following Morgana ever since I started linking up to her Little Loves Linky and it has grown over to Instagram with its very own hashtag. {which I still struggle to add to my photos! – must try harder!!} Morgana’s pictures are spot on and definitely brighten up my insta-feed!

 LIFE AS OUR LITTLE FAMILY

You can find all sorts of pictures on K-A’s feed, from fashion, decor, days out and tea in an array of different cups. I first found K-A through her blog and her Instagram is just wonderful. K-A has moved over to Insta-Stories and I love catching up with the snippets of her day. Definitely worth checking her out if you have not already!

JESS SOOTHILL

A post shared by JESS SOOTHILL (@jess_soothill) on

Where do I start with this Instagram feed! Previously known as mummyofgirlboytwins, Jess switched names and predominantly posts fashion/style/home updates. I absolutely love this Instagram. Jess posts high street fashion clothes at affordable prices and also has a link in her bio so you can also shop what she wears. Definitely check her out if you are interested in fashion and style. One of my favourites Instagram feeds!

Do you have a favourite Instagrammer? Leave the link below, I am always looking for new feeds to follow! If you have not checked out the above I have blogged about then click on the links above to go straight to their page. You won’t regret it! If you enjoy them as much as me why don’t you give them a like too!

TOP 50 FAMILY AND PARENTING BLOG | BEST FOR KIDS

When I started blogging, I wasn’t expecting it to be something I ever carried on with. I went into it half heartedly and even though I am not a prolific blogger I feel like I blog along nicely, so to speak. I’ve never blogged for the […]
