Has another week really passed? This week has been particularly tough, both as a mummy and a working parent. It has been long. It’s not over yet. I have loved it. I am tired. I wouldn’t change it. I am looking forward to 3.30pm when I clock off for the weekend. Let’s do this, well here are my #LittleLoves linking up with @butwhymummywhy …
The Vintage Teacup Club thanks to a recommendation from the lovely Emma over @LittleWoodLife in one of her #LittleLoves. After only 2 days, I already know that it is my kind of book. Easy reading. And it is certainly helping me to switch off of an evening on the train home.
I have also been reading several blogs these last two weeks, I’m trying to expand my reading but also spread the word about ‘Life As Our Little Family’ … During my travels I was drawn to two blogs more than once. That would be Sian @pottymouthedmum and her ‘The newbie class’ posts and secondly Vicki @HonestMummy. Both ladies have been sharing their wisdom recently which I personally have found to be very helpful *Thank you*.
A lot of football. I have Germany in the office sweepstake, you can therefore imagine my delight as I watched the team take Brazil 7-1 on Tuesday night! Fingers crossed for Sunday!
A new series ‘Honourable Woman’ with the beautiful Maggie Gyllenhaal. Wow. Based on the first episode I would recommend it. Did you watch it?
A lot of laughter (Lil G). Giggles (Lil G). A tantrum infused threenager (Lil G).
Cries Screams (Lil G). Happy people, that would be the sun! And sadness, it is exactly 2-months since our close friend, passed away at the age of 34 to the evil that is cancer. Carpe diem friends. You really do not know when your time is up.
Hubby has been on kitchen duty this week so sadly I haven’t been able to snap any pictures for you before he has so kindly delivered my food to the table. However, yesterday I visited the street food stalls in Manchester and found this …
Are you hungry? They were OMG. Turkish Wraps, different flavours, all chicken! Delicious. I do love working in the City.
And lasty …
I am in the throws of putting together my latest post over on the Up All Hours parenting website on competitive spirit in a toddler. Sadly Lil G’s Sports Day never did happen last week, the rain washed away my hopes of watching his first race however the sun is meant to shine it’s heart out today which has made me smile. A lot. I would be delighted if you would pop over and have a read of it, it should be live by Monday.
I have 3 exciting reviews coming to my blog in the coming weeks, all centred around Lil G of course. #KidsInTheKitchen with @BettaLiving, baking with @SweetPeaPantry and Lil G’s radio flyer trailer from @GLTCo.
We’ve also just been approached by the Guardian to take part in an exciting ‘National Trust’ project so watch this space.
Some of you may have noticed that I have not only changed the name of my blog in recent weeks but the design too. I feel much happier and certainly seemed to have been in Blog Love this week.
Much love and here’s to you all *cheers* x x
