SNAPSHOTS AND SCENES | APRIL

SNAPSHOTS AND SCENES | APRIL

I’m so excited to share with you another snapshots and scenes. I didn’t link up last month as I took an unexpected blog break which went on for longer than I actually anticipated. I have come back this month with fresh eyes and the excitement that I am going to be getting a new camera in the coming months to take better photos and videos.

April was a long month. I am not sure if it dragged for anyone else. But it seems to have lasted for ages. We have witnessed some pretty harsh weather and then, a rather welcome heatwave which spread the UK and bought everyone some smiles. The sun makes all the difference! Just as we headed back to school in our summer uniform the cold weather made an ugly appearance again!

We have been busy getting out and about and welcoming our new additions to the Mummy Hearts You household. G and H bought two rather furry friends out of their Easter money. We made the most of the weather when we could, and took spontaneous days out, enjoying picnics and long walks.

April was the month of me seeing The Greatest Showman with G and its literally been the soundtrack to the month. Definitely a must see if you have not seen it already! Finally April saw us completing the kitchen to a useable space. We still have a fair bit to do, but I ave my hob, oven and sink in, so what more could I ask for!

Here are my snapshots of April, don’t forget to pop over to YouTube to watch my video! I would love it if you subscribed too!

FRIEND REQUEST, THE GREASTEST SHOWMAN, THE END OF THE HOLIDAYS

FRIEND REQUEST, THE GREASTEST SHOWMAN, THE END OF THE HOLIDAYS

Its F R I Y A Y which only means one thing and that’s a Little Love round-up with Coffee Work Sleep Repeat.

This week has literally flown by. Most likely because we have been rather busy. We have not really done anything out of the ordinary, just visiting friends, having family over and dog walks. Its been a lovely round-off to the holidays.

Without too much waffling, here are the little things I have been loving.

I finished Good Me, Bad Me and I really enjoyed it. There was a huge twist at the end and I did not see it coming. Definitely recommend it for anyone who loves a psychological thriller. I quickly started a new book which was on my pile. Friend Request by Laura Marshall. Thanks to a few slower paced days this week, I ahve taken full advantage of my blanket and a good read.

I am so so behind with the times with this one, but I finally got to the cinema with G and watched The Greatest Showman. If you have not watched it and can get to a cinema that is still showing it, then its a must. It was so so good. I was a bit dubious about all the hype but I am so glad I went and booked tickets. G loved it and as soon as we left she asked to watch it again. Secretly I wanted to as well. Truly a brilliant film. Cant wait for the release of the DVD.

 

As soon as I got home from the cinema trip I downloaded the soundtrack. I have been listening to it non-stop all week. The music is just so so good. I have a few favourites.  This Is Me, From Now On, The Greatest Show, Never Enough, in fact, every song is my favourite! I am sure I will be listening to this album for a long time to come.

Last week I was banging on about how nice the weather was. This week, its been miserable as sin. Its been pretty grim. So the sandals went back in the wardrobe and the boots made a reappearance, again. 

Not much to shout about. I have been making a wider selection of meals this week now I have my saucepans for my hob. I had to order new pans because my old ones were not compatible with the new induction hob. This week I have made full use out of them. Eating vegetables again, now I can actually boil a pan, also mash, I have missed good hearty food! One thing I really missed was fried egg, so it was only natural to cook it as soon as my pans arrived!

 

Cant quite believe the Easter holidays are coming to an end. I am actually looking forward to having a routine again. Its been so nice to lounge around and not have to be out the door by 8am, but I work so much better with a routine. Anyone else?

Whatever your up too, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

BEAST FROM THE EAST, SNOW DAYS, KEEPING WARM

BEAST FROM THE EAST, SNOW DAYS, KEEPING WARM

Its F R I Y A Y which only means one thing and that’s a Little Love round-up with Coffee Work Sleep Repeat.

This week has been a weird week. We started off with a school closure due to no heating. We were expecting to be hit with terrible weather on Tuesday, but we were literally all shocked when the predicted snow fall failed to show! So whilst everyone else had snow days our school was open. Wednesday the Beast From The East hit us and we did finally get that snow day! Thursday they were back at school and ended up finishing early, and as I type this I am unsure as to whether the school will be open tomorrow {today}. It has most definitely been a week of freezing temperatures and bitter winds. I am hoping to stay indoors at the weekend as I really do not want to brace these awful conditions! How has it bee where you are? Have you suffered with the effects form this beast?

Without too much waffling, here are the little things I have been loving.

I am still engrossed in Eleanor Elephant is completely fine. I am really taking my time because I don’t want to rush it. Its such a wonderful book and I am still very much enthralled with the life of Eleanor. I am half way through it and have been reading it before bed to keep up with my daily reading.

 

Not much this week. I’ve downloaded all episodes of Save Me {SKY ATALNTIC} so I’m really looking forward to watching those. I love Lennie James {Line of Duty and The walking Dead} and obviously Suranne Jones!

I did watch this really bizarre programme called Bring Me Back To Life on 4od. It was a really strange set up, filmed as a diary for when the person woke up. Heres a quick summery,

Cutting Edge documentary telling the story of 22-year-old father Taylor Britton, who broke his neck in a car accident, as he fights for his life in intensive care. Damage to his spinal cord suggests he may be paralysed from the neck down, but no one yet knows the full extent of his injuries. As doctors have decided to put Taylor into a coma so that a machine can support his breathing, this documentary sets out to record Taylor’s medical journey, as well as the love and support of his family and friends as they visit him in hospital.

 

I felt for the guy and was willing him to wake up, but I was so cross at the end, that someone could be that stupid to put their life in danger like he did. You need to watch it!

Loving this song. Its not often I hear much from the radio anymore, but this has been playing a lot on the school run. I find it a bit bizarre that I have not heard it before, I mean it was released over a year ago! Seriously need to listen to the radio more!! I have found myself singing to for the rest of the day. Its quite a catchy song.

I did to wear the appropriate foot wear in the snow! I didn’t think it was actually as bad so popped on my ankle boots and may of skidded all over the place like bambi on ice. Not the best idea! I did learn though and when I went to pick G and H up I wore wellies! They still didn’t have enough grit though!

G and H wrapped up warm to play in the garden this week too. We literally got ready for school and bundled ourselves in the car, only to receive a message to say the school was closed! So out they went straight away to enjoy the freshly fallen snow!

On our snow day, I decided to make a cake to fill some time. I didn’t get any pictures but it was a simple sponge cake, with strawberries and chocolate filling with chocolate icing. G decorated it with sprinkles. I am yet to have any, but Mr B and both G and H polished quite a helping off!

I also made the trip to minor injuries! Luckily G and H school is opposite a hospital so yesterday I took H as he had a unfortunate incident with a door. I thought he may of broken his finger as it swelled up pretty badly and bruised instantly. Because he did it on Wednesday, and the weather was horrendous I made the decision to strap it up and take him the next day. {I did seek medical advice with this!} Anyway, school finished early yesterday so I quickly nipped over before heading home. It was really quite and we were in and out within 5 minutes! Luckily no broken bones, just very bruised and sore!

We have a busy weekend. Tomorrow I am visiting my mum and her husband and then Sunday we are visiting friends. Mr B is going to start the kitchen whilst we are out. I guessed he would get more done if we were not under his feet!

Whatever your up too, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
