One of Us is Lying, Spider-Man and gardening #LittleLoves

I went back to work this week after a month off, somewhat looking forward to getting away from the SAHM life, only to have the mum guilt flare up almost immediately because Jenson had a tummy bug. Is there anything worse than being at work, knowing your child is at home poorly? On a more… Continue reading One of Us is Lying, Spider-Man and gardening #LittleLoves

Personalised alphabet poster from Wonderbly

Growing up I had a personalised story book and it was/is the coolest thing. It featured my family and friends as characters - even little ol' me! So when Wonderbly released My Golden Ticket last year I had to get my hands on a copy and write myself and Jenson into the story. They have… Continue reading Personalised alphabet poster from Wonderbly

Review copies, The Good Fight and new shoes #LittleLoves

I'm due back at work on Monday and I really feel like I need it - not least because my TBR keeps growing! I'm also starting to think I'm not cut out for this SAHM malarkey, although I bet by the end of my first week back I'll be missing him like crazy. What can… Continue reading Review copies, The Good Fight and new shoes #LittleLoves

The ultimate self-care package [Self-Care Sunday #50]

A few weeks ago I won a beautiful box of goodies from Scent Circus, just in time for Mothers Day. It really is the ultimate self-care package. Although Scent Circus specialises in beautiful wax melts, the prize included a box of Pukka tea and a bar of chocolate. All very photogenic, doncha think? I'm a… Continue reading The ultimate self-care package [Self-Care Sunday #50]

Thor Ragnarok, Hashtag Authentic and a literary bucket list #LittleLoves

Well how the devil are you? We've certainly been making the most of the nicer weather and have popped down to the park most days. We still need the ol' puddle suit, proved by the fact that the one time we thought we could do without it, Jenson fell ass-first into a massive puddle. I… Continue reading Thor Ragnarok, Hashtag Authentic and a literary bucket list #LittleLoves

My life in photos: March 2018

I know I say this every month but how is it April already? The first quarter of the year is gone but it still feels like it was just Christmas. And this time next month I'll be planning Jenson's third birthday. Wowzers! Rather than looking forward, I'm just going to take a moment to reflect… Continue reading My life in photos: March 2018

Stationery Matters, Ready Player One and lots of painting #LittleLoves

Well this week has certainly been better than the last week or two. I'm a lot more mobile and sometimes I even forget to take painkillers - go me! I've got a follow-up with the surgeon on Tuesday and hopefully he'll be pleased. It's meant I've been stuck at home a bit less and have… Continue reading Stationery Matters, Ready Player One and lots of painting #LittleLoves

A Tu clothing wish list (Spring 2018)

I don't know where we'd be without Sainsbury's 25% off Tu clothing weeks. Since before Jenson was born we've used these opportunities to stock up on next size clothing and this week is no different. With the summer fast-approaching (although it's easy to think otherwise with all these bleddy snow storms!), there are some essentials… Continue reading A Tu clothing wish list (Spring 2018)

Stranger Things, nursery creations and all of the (unread) books #LittleLoves

I'm going to start this week's Little Loves with a little moan because once this post gets underway I want to focus on the things that have made me smile - that's what these posts are all about! For those of you following the surgery trials and tribulations, I got a bit cocky last week… Continue reading Stranger Things, nursery creations and all of the (unread) books #LittleLoves

You'll never believe it - I finally had my operation! There's not a lot of exciting stuff to report for this week's Little Loves but I've got a few things to share. Read: Happier Thinking by Lana Grace Riva. I've got a full review post coming on Sunday so I'll just leave you with a… Continue reading Happier Thinking, MTV Rocks and Mother’s Day #LittleLoves
