It has been a rather exciting week here at Life As Our Little Family HQ. My new blog design went live on Monday *Eek* which made me very happy indeed. My business cards were ordered yesterday, so if you’re going to BlogFest in November you may just find one slipped into your pocket! We have been offered a very cute item to review for Christmas which is right up our ‘keepsake’ street. On top of that our gorgeous boy just seems to be growing up so quickly and has become even more gorgeous over night!
Back to it KA … Ok, so our little loves are…
I have been reading this super magazine all about Blogging, have you seen it? It’s very inspirational and is packed full of tips…
Lil G and I have been reading the ‘Elf on the shelf’ story which is very lovely. We just missed out on this last year as it sold out everywhere by November so I got in their early this year and took the first one off the shelf! Yay for the crazy mummy! Lil G has now named him (all to be revealed) and we are registering our little guy with ElfHQ at the North Pole this weekend so that we can officially adopt him as our Elf! I cannot wait to have some Elfish fun with this little dude. Will there be an Elf visiting your house on the 1st December?
Wow. What a week. The return of Walking Dead, Homeland and The Apprentice. Not that you can put them all in the same league! The Apprentice pretty much falls into trash TV these days doesn’t it? I am rather disappointed with it this year if I am honest and despise the blonde girl for suggesting that women are only successful when wearing a short skirt and a lot of makeup.
It goes without saying that Homeland and Walking Dead both hit our screens with a bam. Both rather brutal too. We are once again hooked.
Brogues. Scarfs. Hats. Winter woollies yet with a hint of summer. I have loved my wardrobe this last week. Long may the dry, bright autumnal days continue. Be gone rain. You do not make me happy. I cannot share all my piccies as I have a post coming on the blog soon!
I am failing miserably here. Other than the drone of two rather snobby and posh women on the train I have enjoyed not listening to much at all.
Mr H has done all of the cooking this week. Who am I kidding he does almost all of the cooking each week! A Cottage Pie and BBQ pulled pork this week which were both rather yummy! Are you ready to drool…
We also indulged in the new Jamie Oliver cook book ‘Comfort Food’ … I am really looking forward to putting together some of his recipes. Did you see the series? HUGE fans in this house.
Tonight Mr H has surprised me with date night. Nanny is babysitting. We’re off to a little jazz bar which was where we had our 1st date! The food is to die for, as is the ambiance. Ooh my mouth is watering just thinking of that King Prawn Risotto. Yum. As you all know me so well, there WILL be pictures on IG! Ha ha
We are off to friends on Sunday for lunch. After reading Mummy Hearts You blog this week I am going to be making her ‘Nutella Cheesecake’ which looks sooooo good! I am beyond excited about making this tomorrow, even deserts taste better the day after!
And lastly lastly … My two favourite quotes I have come across this week…
Cuddles, cuppas and cosy knits are the way to end a busy week
A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything
Love to you all and enjoy your weekend!
