Manic Pixie Dream Girls, Peppa Pig and Ed Sheeran sing-alongs #LittleLoves

It's been another one of those weird weeks where the weather was gorgeous all weekend so I was able to frolic in the son with Jenson and then when my working 'week' started (sorry not sorry) I was in bed every night with Jenson with no evenings to myself. I find it easier to cope… Continue reading Manic Pixie Dream Girls, Peppa Pig and Ed Sheeran sing-alongs #LittleLoves

Friday Favourites #30

It's been the first full week (ok, I'm part-time but still) back at work since Christmas and I've been bleddy knackered.

Now's the time for catching up on laundry, tidying… Continue reading Friday Favourites #30

Friday Favourites #7

I got to Thursday morning and only had two items on my mental note of Friday Favourites (who am I kidding, I've got notes in my Blogger's Journal!) and got a bit sulky about how I couldn't manage to think of five awesome things that have happened in the week. Then Thursday turned into a… Continue reading Friday Favourites #7
