Giving less fucks, more film soundtracks and embracing the festivities #LittleLoves

The last week has been a bit of a game-changer for me. Going along to Outlaw 2017 and reading Sarah Knight's first and third books have really given me a kick up the ass to work on my side-hustle in 2018. I reckon her second book (have I asked Santa for enough yet?) really will… Continue reading Giving less fucks, more film soundtracks and embracing the festivities #LittleLoves

The Power, Taylor Swift and magic painting #LittleLoves

And just like that, another week's over! I've got two weeks of #LittleLoves to catch you up on as I abandoned last week's post in favour of celebrating Fountain Pen Day. Cos, y'know, it's me. So here's a look at what I've been loving lately. Read: The Power and Wild. I've read a lot of… Continue reading The Power, Taylor Swift and magic painting #LittleLoves

Jenson: 29 months old

Wow, Jenson's age in months is equal to my age in years! And I feel like he's really grown up a lot in the last month too. He's coming out with new words every day and is even stringing a few together, such as 'ready, steady, go!' and 'where gone?', plus he can recognise loads… Continue reading Jenson: 29 months old

The Cursed Child, The Walking Dead and indie film soundtracks #LittleLoves

This week I've been battling a poorly child, a serious lack of me time and debating whether or not to get out the winter coat. Here's a look at the sunnier side of the last seven days. Read: Harry Potter and The Cursed Child - and it nearly wrecked me, almost on a level with… Continue reading The Cursed Child, The Walking Dead and indie film soundtracks #LittleLoves

What Jenson has been reading lately

I'm not the only lucky bookworm in the house who gets sent books to review - Jenson does too! Here's a look at what we've been reading lately. Jenson loves anything interactive and board books are still our style of choice, making these the perfect titles. Up first is Buildablock* by Christopher Franceschelli. It's such… Continue reading What Jenson has been reading lately

Turtles All the Way Down, the giggles and a Christmas giveaway #LittleLoves

If you follow me on social media (links in the sidebar to the right there >>>) you may… Continue reading Turtles All the Way Down, the giggles and a Christmas giveaway #LittleLoves

Welcome to another week of #LittleLoves, where I share what I've been loving over the past week. I've whizzed through the latest Holly Bourne, been moved by a TED Talk and listened to an old favourite. Check out the highlights. Read: It Only Happens in the Movies and Stationery Matters. I freaking love Holly Bourne… Continue reading Stationery Matters, We Should All Be Feminists and mulled wine #LittleLoves

Gilmore Girls, finger painting and addictive reads #LittleLoves

This week has been pretty eventful, for Jenson at least. After skipping a nursery session due to a cold he then went on to sail through the next - with minimal tears and he actually played! His next session will be upped to two hours and it'll include snack time, so let's hope he keeps… Continue reading Gilmore Girls, finger painting and addictive reads #LittleLoves

My life in photos: September 2017

I've always loved September. I think it's the whole 18 years in education, followed by five years of working in higher education, that always makes it feel like the start of a new year. It's the changing seasons too; it's kinda magical! Here's a look back at our September. I started the month with a… Continue reading My life in photos: September 2017

Jenson: 28 months old

Man, it has been a big month! Yep, we're a few weeks into nursery now. I had hoped that Jenson may have been settled in by now, working his way towards two four-hour sessions a week, but we soon realised that this transition is going to take some time. We have a routine which seems… Continue reading Jenson: 28 months old
