As it is the 31st I guess I should start this post with a ‘Happy Halloween’ message to you all … And now on with the show. Tis Friday which means that it is time to hang out with the #LittleLoves crew who form an orderly queue over at Morgana’s blog ButWhyMummyWhy for the weekly round-up. Here our Our Little Family #LittleLoves …
A really great post over on the @TheBoyandMe blog. Beautifully written. The post is called ‘Lessons From Parents’ Evening’ where as a teacher and mother she writes a really thought-provoking post.
I also read an interesting article in a friends Closer Magazine on how to monetise your blog. He actually pointed it out to me as it was all about blogging.
Missing … It took my breath away but for all the wrong reasons. A child is abducted you see. Since Lil G arrived, dramas like this really upset me. They’re so close to the bone. It really made me think twice about keeping him close FOREVER. Programs like this make it so easy for you to wrap your little ones up in cotton wool!
Strictly … It’s all about the sparkle and I love it!
Far too many people talking in the quiet zone on my commute! Eek (a questionable link I know!)
Made (I’m doing well this week)
Autumn is all about afternoons spent cooking up comfort food for us, most often it is a Saturday afternoon with a glass of wine for me and a beer for Mr H. Last weekend was just that…
Chocolate chip chilli … It’s no ordinary chilli. It is cooked low & slow for 3 hours, leaving you with big chunks of beef and chorizo. Scrummy
Oh and some little treats for the bake sale at my office today in support of Caketober. We are raising money for a local charity.
Let’s not forget our pumpkins. We had so much fun making these … Our first ones too!
The winter hats are out my friends…
This time next week (well if you’re reading between 6.48am and 8.25am I will be all aboard the Choo Choo otherwise known as a Virgin Train to London Baby! I am off to my first blogging conference. Eek. BlogFest here I come!
I am so so proud of our gorgeous boy. Who came home with a Halloween arts and crafty pumpkin. As he handed it to me it wasn’t long before he was telling me to look at his name. The boy has made his first attempt at writing his name and WOW am I impressed. So proud. I don’t actually know when he is meant to be writing his name but for now it feels like a pretty grown up thing to be doing!
And finally, I was a guest on the Love All Dads podcast which is now live. If you fancy listening to me talking with the boys about Robbie Williams, the NHS and other topics here is the link.
Have a lovely weekend #littleloves crew
