Welcome to my weekly #LittleLoves post. A roundup of the little things I have loved this week. This post is part of the #LittleLoves linky over on ButWhyMummyWhy. If you fancy seeing what other bloggers have to say or joining in then why not pop on over. We are a very friendly bunch and there is always tea and cake aplenty!
I’m still reading this one …
I had hoped to get through it much quicker however this has been a particular busy week for me in the day job and then catching up on reading and writing at night has meant for a very tired me.
On the blogging front, I have enjoyed reading Sian’s Newbie Class posts which again have left me tinkering with my blog *thank you* and our hosts Bad Mums Club post which is very close to my heart. Why do people always ask? So when are you having another?!
Ray Donovan. YES … it’s back. We loved the first series and loved it. It came back on to our screens this week and OMG. I have a little crush. It’s ok, the hubby knows. As well as him looking rather good, it’s his character I love. Highly recommend.
The sun has shone therefore I have been able to continue with my obsession for floral print and floaty skirts …
And then the weather turned, I was a little perplexed as to what to wear for the Kindergarten run this morning, it was still so warm yet the heavens could have opened at any point. I felt like I could have been going to a festival. Couldn’t help but stick with the floral theme. Today is a work from home day, comfort is key …
New shoes for Lil G … I have been a Bad Mum, I missed the signs. If you haven’t seen my ‘Bad Mums Club’ post then maybe this won’t make too much sense to you …
The cheers as our gorgeous George won one of his races at his Sports Day and of course Daddy too, who stormed the Daddy race. Sadly I lost my race to cheating mummy’s … I am a sore loser! I may have written a post on it! Oops.
Red velvet cupcakes. There was a birthday in the office this week which meant I was on baking duty. Of course they were eaten with a cup of tea …
and lastly …
A very exciting weekend for us. Not only is it date night for Mr H and I tomorrow night, this weekend we are being interviewed and photographed by the Guardian for the #50things project in association with the National Trust.
It really is a super initiative. What could be better than getting children closer to nature? I’m sure all of you and your littles under the age of 11 could make use of this list over the next 6 weeks https://www.50things.org.uk/activity-list.aspx and this will be the co branded microsite where all the content will live http://www.theguardian.com/national-trust-50-things – I really am super excited.
We have been given a pass for the day to the NT site Tatton Park and instructions on 5 activities to take part in; Build a den, Hunt for bugs, Play Pooh sticks, Mud pies and Plant, grow, eat. A photographer is arriving at our house at 10am tomorrow and then we will be getting closer to nature! Wow.
Enjoy your weekend and I look forward to seeing you online over the next few days.
