POP UP BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, THE WALKING DEAD, COMFORT FOOD | LITTLE LOVES 41/52
Its F R I Y A Y which only means one thing and thats a LittleLove round up with Coffee Work Sleep Repeat.
Like last week, this week has been a bit hard for me. I have been waiting for that all important date and yesterday I finally received the confirmation letter and I am booked in for my op on Tuesday. Im feeling really overwhelmed by it all yet again. I wrote a post up, which is a bit of a personal one. Its all about guilt and how very guilty I feel putting everyone through it again. I cannot shake the feeling and I am struggling to keep focused on the positives. But like last week I am trying to pick out my Little Loves of the week and trying to distract my wandering brain to the positives that have happened throughout half term!!
Without too much waffling here is this weeks #LittleLove
In just shy of 2 weeks I will have a beautiful 9 year old. I still cannot believe how quickly those 9 years have gone. My mum and her husband are away for her birthday, and as they go on Monday, I agreed that she could one their birthday gifts early. Now we are yet to read this, as its so delicate and I am petrified of tearing it! But they bought her the most amazing pop-up Beauty and The Beast story book. I have never seen a pop up book like it and I was amazed at the detail. Its really is such a beautiful book and there are so many different bits you can pull out and read. We both cannot wait to have a quiet moment to sit and read it together.
Lots of Kids TV! Its half term here so we have been making the most of Netflix and kids channels. I was literally on standby for a last minute date, I was told it could possibly be a days notice so I purposely didn’t plan anything during the week. So the days we have not been out its been TV/Sofa days which quite frankly have been lovely.
Can we take a moment to talk about The Walking Dead. Its back! If you have not given this program a go, then YOU SHOULD! The opening to season 7 was a bit weird, but all the same, I am so glad its back. I love Negan. Your supposed to hate the bad guys, but I love how Jeffrey Dean Morgan portrays him.
I watched Bake Off. We tend not to watch it on the night its aired as I can’t stand the adverts and 90% of the time I find myself drifting off. I was gobsmacked that Liam went last week. Mr B and I really thought he deserved to stay. This week again, I feel they got it wrong again. I really hope they don’t mess this final up. I really want Sophie to win it. She has deserved to get Star Baker more times than she has! She is by far my favourite of the three remaining. Can we also take a moment to mention the Flamingo Show Stopper!?? I mean, it was bloody amazing!
I’ve also watched, Our Girl, which kicked up a gear this week. I was only talking to my sister about it before I watched it, saying I was disappointed with it. This week was a good episode though! The Apprentice I am behind on, so will catch up with that tonight and Celebrity Hunted! Cant believe Anniker Rice failed!! I am back Spencer and Jamie!
Not much this week.. Lots of Chatter from G and H. its been lovely listening to them play. They have both been obsessed with Lego Dimensions, more so H but G has been playing it to help him out. Its nice not to hear them bickering!
Nothing to shout about really. I have been wrapping up warm as the temperature has dropped. Knits and jumpers have been my go to wear this week.
I have also been wearing my new Marc Jacobs Mascara. It so lovely and makes my lashes look extra thick and full! Just what I need.
I made a very delicious Shepherds pie this week. Who doesn’t love comfort food? Shepherds Pie is one of my favourites. I slow cooked the mince all day and then popped it in the oven when it was time. I cooked up some veg and it was a big hit. G and H wouldn’t eat it, but my mum and her husband polished it off. Its not Mr B’s choice of dinners but he even said how tasty it was. I made enough to freeze some for next week too!
As well as the beautiful book G received, she was also bought the new Lego and Friends Catamaran set. We spent Wednesday morning building it together. G did so well. She did give up on the last bag. She was so chuffed she made most of it herself though! I was slightly put out as she is now at the age where she wants to do it and I can’t sit there and do it for her! I love building Lego!
We have no real plans for the weekend. We may go and watch a free fireworks display that is put on every weekend up to bonfire night. They are normally really good and we have heard lots of good things about them. So we will make the trip to the beach and watch the display unfold from afar.
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,
