little love 2019 | february edition

Its the end of the month and Its Fri-yay, which means a Little Loves round up.

February has been such a lovely month. The whole month has generally been really good. The weather has helped, this past week has been really rather lovely. The warmer climates have made an appearance, low double figures. Its been so nice to not have to wrap up in a big coat!

It was so lovely that so many of you stuck with me for Little Loves. I was a but worried that I would not have many come over from Morgana’s link. It was wonderful to sit and read all the link ups. I am hoping I got round to everyone! Hope to see you link up through the month of February. Without too much waffling her are some of my Little Loves for February.


I am still yet to finish a book this year. Its pretty bad that I haven’t. I always have every intention of taking myself off early to bed to get a few chapters in, but it never happens and here I am again telling you all how bad I have been at reading. I will try to report more in this section in March!


I have watched so much this month! I am leaving some of the best for my monthly “what I watched” roundup post so do check that out if you want to see some of the best TV recommendations this month, sneak preview.. Dirty John.. Thats all I am saying!

Great British Sewing Bee – I love this program. Not sure why, but I do. Its currently on BBC2 and it follows amateur sewists. I love watching them make something from nothing. I find it fascinating. They have changed presenters this year. It used to be Claudia Winkleman but its now Joe Lycett, I have no idea who he is, but he is doing well. I just love Claudia, was pretty upset when I found out she was not presenting anymore!

Shipwrecked – Another program that might not be to everyones taste. I will admit, this is pure trash. I used to watch it 20 odd years ago, religiously every Sunday. Then it finished. I saw an advert in January for the new series, so I just had to check it out. Thankfully I didn’t have to wait a whole week for next episode. It was aired over two weeks and was on nightly. Took me back to my teen years!

A Star is Born – I popped into Tesco this week and picked up the DVD. I missed it at the cinema and was gutted. James and I ordered a curry and had a little date night. It was such a lovely film. Tragic, sad, emotional and brilliantly acted. So much love for Lady Gaga, she is beautiful and this movie shows that. I prefer her more dressed down. She doesn’t need all the make up. If you have not watched it, I would really recommend you do.


Coldplay – James would literally be choking on his tea if he heard me saying how much I am loving Coldplay at the moments. He really isn’t a fan. I have been loving them though. They have been made a permanent fixture on my iTunes and I am creating a Spotify playlist as I type!

Miley Cyrus – Mark Ronson has collaborated with Miley Cyrus and I am loving the dolly-esque feel. Nothing Breaks Like a Heart is really catchy and I am constantly hearing it on the radio. Its one that certainly sticks in your head and you end up singing it all day.

N-Trance – Completely different to my other song choices. I heard Set You Free on the radio before Christmas and it took me back to my school years. I have added it to my playlist and I have been listening to it all month. A song you can’t really dislike!


Wooly Jumpers – I purchased some new wooly jumpers this month for work. I don’t have a work uniform so I felt like I needed  some new items in my wardrobe. I bought some oversized jumpers to keep me warm, just as the weather was turning warmer! Epic fail. They are really lovely jumpers though and some will see me through spring which is great.

Cone of Shame – I am handing this over to Fluer. She spent the best part of the month wearing the cone of shame! I felt so sorry for her, but it was all for her own good at the end of the day. She went in for an operation, we decided in January to book her in to be Spayed. I was desperate to get her done. She doesn’t cope to well when in season, so it was the best thing to do. She is now back to her very bouncy self! Minus the cone!


Lasagne – It was an epic fail, but I made a lasagne. Mine never ever stays together. It look like mush and although tasted ok, it didn’t look appetising! I’m going to re-attempt it but not put as much white sauce in it. I think I overdid it. I’ve been trying to make more things from scratch rather than jarred sauces.

Painting – We made a start on the hallway. This is a big job and one that James has really not been looking forward to. We have done a whitewash undercoat {I say we, James} He just needs to paint it all in a lovely light Grey. Not sure how long it will take as he is doing it in between work. We have ordered the carpet for the stairs, which I am really excited for, it will tie in with all the rooms upstairs finally! Last room to be done {then that’s when you start over again?}


Two things have really stood out for me this month. Two big events.

Young Voices Concert – You may of seen on Instagram lots of posts about concerts that was being help all over the country. Gracie and Henry joined the choir at school last year and it meant they got to be involved in a concert at the O2 arena. It was pretty spectacular. Lots of schools were involved. It was breathtaking if I am honest. So many schools and so many children singing in unison to songs they had been practising. Mostly pop songs. They did an amazing mash-up of the Greatest Show and it was just so wonderful for Gracie and Henry to be part of. It was such a lovely evening. Very late, but I was so proud of them both.

Talent Shows – Another thing that has stood out for me this month was Gracie taking part in a talent contest. I will admit, I was shocked when she said she wanted to do it and part of me honestly thought she would pull out at the last minute. Not because I didn’t think she was good enough, because her confidence is so low. She is the last person I ever thought, that would put herself forward to do anything like this. She came out of school a few weeks ago saying she had got through to the semi finals. I was so happy. She performed a dance routine with a friend. They both choreographed it, they don’t really have dancing background. Don’t do dancing outside of school at a club or anything. Last week she had to perform in front of the whole school, children and teachers in an x-factor style live audition. She smashed it and is through to the final!! I can’t quite believe it and her confidence has sky rocketed! Amazing! I am really excited to actually watch the performance when we go back for the finals.

I am looking forward to seeing you all link up in February! Have a wonderful month ahead.

    I really ought to look into the Young Voices thing more so, it sounds like such an incredible opportunity! You are not alone with the ‘cone of shame’ as our pooch is currently parading around in one too. She has had a lump removed from her head and has been spayed earlier this week, I feel so bad for her but it is quite amusing watching what looks like the Pixar lamp walking around the house LOL!

      The cone was funny at times. It does resemble a Pixar Lamp! haha Young Voices was amazing! If your school do a choir and join in with it I would highly recommend.

    How brilliant that your daughter decided to enter the talent contest and that she and her friend got through tot he final – that’s fantastic! I hope her new-found confidence stays with her no matter what the outcome. It’s wonderful seeing them shine isn’t it? Wishing her the best of luck. IT sounds like it’s been a good month for you – I hope March brings more of the same 🙂

    I’ve seen so many people at the Young Voices concert this year on Facebook! It really does look amazing, a proud moment for sure. I’ve not go into Sewing Bee but have heard so much about it. I absolutely loved A Star is Born and now that it’s out on Amazon, I’ll probably watch it again. Such an emotional rollercoaster, never seen a film like it! Thanks for hosting, have linked up. xx

      You should definitely watch the sewing bee, it’s a really easy watch! A star is born is just a wonderful film, totally agree, not seen anything like it.

    How brilliant about the talent show – well done Gracie! A Star is Born is so good isn’t it? I haven’t seen Dirty John but I’ve heard good things! x
