It’s been a funny old week I tell you. I have a cold *boo hiss* and the reddest nose, just call me Rudolph! Despite feeling really tired and generally quite rubbish, I have so much passion and excitement for my blog at the minute that I find myself struggling to switch off the laptop at night. I really should… 1) speak to Mr H more and 2) get to bed earlier … Eek!
Here are our #LittleLoves
This week I really enjoyed reading Tom from @DiaryofTheDad ‘s post on KPI’s for Kids. It really made me chuckle. It’s all about points 1 and 3 for me!
I am still engrossed in my Mollie Makes Blogging magazine. Such a great read. It has given me the confidence to add a little feature to my blog which I will launch in the New Year. Ooohhh.
Lil G and I have been reading Halloween books for a little review we’ve put together for Routes to Reading. If you fancy a read or a recommendation on two Halloween books then you’ll find it here my dears.
Homeland hit our screens with a bang last week and the drama certainly didn’t slip away in the 2nd episode. The scene where Carrie was thinking of drowning the baby really upset me. I had to leave the room. Clearly it wasn’t going to happen but since becoming a mummy I really cannot bare to watch scenes like this.
And the Walking Dead. Eek. Goodness that final scene was just shocking. They were eating his leg! If it continues like this I will be switching off as it seems to have gone just one step too far for me.
My gorgeous George reciting his one line which he has been given for his nativity play at Kindergarten. I nearly wept when they said that he had a part & it was a solo! Fingers crossed he doesn’t get too shy on the day. Eek
Well, after seeing Anna-Marie’s recipe for her Nutella Cheesecake I couldn’t help myself and made it for our dinner party last weekend. I even popped it on to my blog and shared it on the Tasty Tuesdays linky as it was so popular on my IG feed! So many comments and so many requests for the recipe. Great recipe Anna-Marie @MummyHeartsYou!
We also indulged in this…
Chicken Tarragon Pie. It really is delicious. Shredded chicken in a creamy sauce, Finished off with a crunchy topping. Your little ones will love scrunching up the topping too which is filo pastry, a perfect way to get them involved.
Mr H made his signature American Style Pancakes which were OMG delicious. I will be popping his recipe for these up on the blog next week too. They are so light and fluffy yet really thick too!
Friday night was date night so the heels came out… Mr H took me to the bar/restaurant where we had our first date! I love this long blazer…
Lil G was dressed in a little a/w outfit. Sporting his flat cap and denim jacket. I do love this jacket. Other than the trousers, it is all Zara.
This is me trying to find a balance between autumn fashion and oddly warm October days…
Despite not winning the ‘Best Non Dad Blog Award’ boo hoo *cries in to my tea* he he, I have been invited on to the Love All Dads podcast which they record every Sunday night so be sure to look out for the link next week!
I came across this phrase which made me smile…
