BACK IN A ROUTINE, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, HOSPITAL VISITS | LITTLE LOVE 16/52

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

This week we are back to normality! We have been thrown back into school and we are firmly back in a routine.  As much as I love having G and H off and at home with me, we all work better when we have routine and towards the end of the Easter holidays we were definitely in need of it.

I’ve been loving lots this week, without too much waffling here is this weeks #LittleLove

I actually picked up my book this week. Only managed a few chapters but it kept me going at my hospital appointment, which might I add was running late by 2 hours!!

I also have flicked through Ideal Home magazine. I love getting inspiration from them. My mums husband has them on subscription so I get to have them once he has finished!

Watched

I finally got to see Beauty and The Beast! How amazing was it. Its my all time favourite Disney film and I was half expecting it to ruin the fantasy of the animated version, but it blew me away and I loved it just as much as the original. I have to say though, the prince when he turned from beast could of been a bit more handsome. Maybe it was the long hair that turned me off him!

Broadchurch! how amazing was the finale? I was not expecting it! I had a feeling about some of it but I was way off with my predictions! Gutted its over with now!

Mr B and I are making our way through the latest season of Homeland. We get a bit lost with this series and we end up taking a break, then binge watching and thinking why did we stop? This season is bloody brilliant and I say it every time, how can they continue? but they also manage to come up trumps with the script. I think we have 3 episodes left to watch which I am sure we will have watched by the weekend.

Heard

I went to the hospital this week. It was a 3 month plastic surgery check up and all is good with my scars. All 5 of them. I had some concerns and because I am not due to see the specialist cancer doctor till June, I asked my consultant if he would quickly take a look at some moles. Thankfully he doesn’t see anything wrong with them, I just need to keep an eye on them and mention it at my June appointment. I went to this appointment on my own and although its normally the least one to worry about, I had major butterflies, Im guessing it was because I had concerns, it didn’t help the clinic was over running and in total I waited 2 hours to be seen. Thankfully I left with good news! Such a relief! Just June to getup the way now. I hate the countdown to hospital visits!

Wore

I have not worn it yet, but I purchased a new skirt, top and shoes for a wedding I am going to in the summer. I saw the outfit a few weeks ago and liked how it looked on the mannequin. Whether it looks good on me is a completely different story but I will give it a go!

G and H were also kitted out in their summer uniform. G has shot up and her winter uniform no longer fits so I decided not to buy any more skirts and shirts and just dive straight back in with her summer dress. H would wear shorts all year round if he could so he is rather pleased he no longer has to wear trousers!

Made

I didn’t make this, my sister did. Mr B is putting up my picture shelves at the weekend, I have the perfect place for it to go. I adore it and I have a big flamingo picture that I am going to pop up next to it!

And lastly..

Mr B has worked so hard in laying all our flooring downstairs. He just has a tiny bit left to do and then the trimming. I absolutely love it and I am so glad I no longer have to look at dirty old flooring! The lounge is finally done and its just down to me to finish it off with some little touches! Next job is new internal doors downstairs!

What ever your up to, have a wonderful weekend and have a very lovely Easter!

We are officially on our Easter Break!! Its definitely needed as I have two very tired, warn out children. It seems like its been a really long half term but it really hasn’t! I am so excited for the slower paced days and not having to make lunches and iron uniform! I am just hoping we have some lovely weather so we can make the most of it!

I have been loving lots this week, including seeing my garden bloom with lots of lovely gorgeous flowers! Without too much waffling here is this weeks #LittleLove

Read

I got a new book! Not one you can really read, but its definitely one you can pick up and make you feel a lot happier about yourself. I have wanted Fearne Cottons book for ages and the title says it all. Happy. I have read a few pages and I can see myself really getting a lot out of it.

Watched

Line of Duty!! Oh my goodness, if you have not watched it before then you should! Its such a great programme and I was left screaming at the TV. Its definitely going to be a good series! Cannot wait for episode two!

I have been watching lots of Vlogs this week. My favorites at the moment are Katie {mummydaddyme} Charlotte {write like no-ones watching} The Meldrums and Lucy {Dear Beautiful}

Lucy vlog about her house move was so lovely and I loved it when she shared her elation about finally getting those keys!

I watched G get up in assembly and receive her swimming ribbon. This term she has been having lesson both at school and privately. I take her weekly to an outside swim school, but her school year were given the opportunity to take lessons at school. It has really paid off, she has come on so well and I could not be prouder.

Heard

I am currently typing this in the Kitchen, listening to my oven fan crank round. I swear its on its last legs and one of these days I am going to have an oven that no longer works! Its so loud I can hardly hear myself think!

I also heard my mums husband say some rather lovely things to me. I am quite vocal about struggling as a parent and how I find it hard sometimes. I am also quite vocal about how I feel like a failure when it comes to parenting {only sometimes!} We had a discussion the other day and I ended up getting in his car to guide him back to mine and he went back to the conversation we had over lunch and said some really lovely things to me {not just about me}. I had to tell him to stop as I would of ended up shedding a tear. I am so glad he has become part of the family, he makes my mum happy, which is just the best. A happy mum means a happy daughter!

Wore

This week has been so lovely. The sun has shone everyday apart from wednesday, which saw me dig out my coat and boots {again!} Every other day, I have had my sandals on. Its been a long time coming and I keep saying it, but its so lovely to have a little warmth on your skin {not too much though!}

Made

Nothing in particular thats worth shouting about. I have bought some ingredient to make some easter bits. I have seen lots on Pinterest that I want to give a try. My Easter Bark which I made last year will make a comeback with a twist! I am sure G and H will want to help me make that!

And lastly..

As most of you know, we have been busy decorating for what seems like FOREVER! This week we finally got paint on the wall and my gorgeous Orla Kiely wallpaper went up! I could not be happier with it and its definitely worth paying that bit extra for quality. It looks amazing! Mr B has the wonderful job of radiators this weekend and hopefully he can make a start on laying the floor!

 

What ever your up to, have a wonderful weekend

PARENTS EVENING, WALKING, GARDENING | LITTLE LOVE 10/52

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 busy week this week. I have managed to get out for at least a 3 mile walk every day and I feel so much better for it. My head is so clear when I arrive back and I feel so calm. I have been tracking all my mileage on my watch but had an unfortunate event when I accidentally deleted all my work outs when I transferred all my data over to my new phone! I stupidly didn’t back up the phone correctly and then deleted it all!! You live and learn!

Without too much waffling here is this weeks #LittleLove

Read

G and H had their parents evening this week, so I read some lovely comments by their teachers. It was lovely to here such wonderful things about them and both are doing so well academically. I couldn’t be prouder.

 

Watched

 

Mr B has been working late’s this week so it was ample opportunity for me to watch what I wanted of an evening! The Replacement, which is so good and if you have not started it you really should. Broadchurch which again was another excellent episode.

I’ve been watching the new series of Nashville, and I am so so disappointed in this season. Im not going to give away any spoilers but its pretty sad and I don’t know whether I can carry on watching it!

I also “watched” Mr B prep our lounge for its renovation! We have completed upstairs {minus the hallway} and are now concentrating on downstairs and we can finally get painting. I have a clear image of what I want, modern, fresh and cosy. I’m so excited about the next few weeks to finally get some colour on the wall, and most importantly watching Mr B lay our flooring!

Heard

Normally I am pretty good with this section but I cant think of anything that has really stood out! I have been listening to the very taleted Lennon and Maisy who star in Nashville. I have mentioned them a few times on here and I could listen to them all day long. Maisy Stella sang a gorgeous rendition of Adele’s Make You Feel My Love, I cant share it as it has a spoiler in it! But I will leave you with this..

Wore

Trainers, I’ve made progress with my walking as I said before and I have really taken a liking to it. I need to get a new pair of trainers though as I think {well I know} mine are too small and I have been left with sore toes!

I also got dressed up on Saturday night. We were invited to a 40th birthday party. It was optional fancy dress and me being boring decided to opt out of dressing up, but I did where a lovely fuchsia dress I bought for my mums wedding a few years ago. I have to admit, I felt rather frumpy in it, which has sparked the incentive to really give this walking a good try. I was a bit self conscious if I am honest! But it was a lovely night and I drank way to much!

Made

 

Last weekend we spent Saturday in the garden “making” it look pretty. Last October I planted so many bulbs. I literally scattered them around the garden and hoped for the best. I’m no gardener and I am still learning and this was a huge learning curve for me. I realised I maybe should of planted the bulbs in group and not just scattered them!! We had so many sprouting up here, there and everywhere! A trip to the garden centre for some new pots soon sorted it all out. Now I have lots of pots with lots of spring flowers! Its looking rather lovely. Cannot wait for the warmer weather so I can sit outside {with a shaded umbrella of course!} Also, how amazing is my new watering can?!?!?

Mr B also “made” a dash out to get me some hash browns to cure my hangover, which didn’t work, as I had to cook them myself!

And lastly..

Tonight I am at a charity quiz night. I am supporting a mum friend who is running the marathon in memory of her best friend. She has worked so hard and has raised an amazing amount of cash. I have made the wise decision not to drink as I went out last weekend and may of spent Sunday nursing a god awful hangover! I don’t want to be doing that again in a hurry!

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