Finding Time for my #LittleLoves…


I have been really useless with blogging recently, we’ve been so busy with decorating and trying to sort things out at home that I just haven’t had the time or desire really to sit and write so today I thought I’d sit and join in with #Littleloves again. I love this linky and just wish I could commit to it every week.


I’ve been pretty useless with reading too recently. I started the year off so well but I haven’t picked my book up for a couple of weeks now. I should do as I was really enjoying it…

I’m half way through Mercy by Jodi Picoult, it is a great book so far but I just haven’t had the time to read it. I usually read in the bath but I’ve been opting for a quick shower recently so I’ve lost that reading time. I’m going to try and make the effort to get this book finished and start a new one for next week.


I’m watching Suits on Netflix at the moment and I am totally addicted to it! I’ve almost finished it so I’m going to be looking for a new series to binge watch. Any suggestions?

James and I are watching Masterchef on BBC iPlayer when we get chance and it is really encouraging us to get more adventurous in the kitchen. James hardly ever cooks so it’s really nice to actually have someone cook for me every now and then. Although the last thing he made was pretty disgusting 😉 so I’m hoping he improves next time!


I’ve been listening to lots of music while I’ve been running over the last few weeks. One song that really gets stuck in my head and really pushes me to run faster is Peanut Butter Jelly. I’d never heard it until it came on my Running playlist on Spotify and I just love it! It’s so catchy, the kids have caught on to it and are always dancing around to it now too… I’m sure I’ll be sick of it soon 😉


The last thing I made were these gorgeous Easter cupcakes for my other half to take to work for his team. I just love baking but I don’t do it very often because I would just eat them all. So I make them for other people instead and at least I get to lick the bowl while I’m doing them 😉

There have been a few days where I have been able to wear my Saltwater sandals recently instead of my boots! It makes me so happy to be able to wear them again! I am so ready for summer!!

and Lastly…

As some of you will know I am training to run a half marathon at the moment. Last night I ran 10km in just under 60 mins and I am so pleased with myself! I never ever thought I’d be able to run 10km… I couldn’t even run 1km in January so it is a huge achievement for me! Now I just have to double that and then some – I’m really nervous about the half marathon but I know that I can do it if I just keep up with my training.

If you have any spare cash I’d love for you to sponsor me for my half marathon. I’m raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support so it is a really worthy cause. Everyone who sponsors me will get their link in my sidebar over there —–> until the end of the year as a thank you 🙂

    Those cupcakes look delicious! And that’s brilliant about the 10k – I can’t even think about running 5k right now so that’s an amazing time, plus planning to run a half-marathon…wowzers. Oh, and I love PBJ too, what a tune 🙂

    I love Jodi Picoult such an amazing writer. I can’t wait to get my sandals out, it’s not quite been warm enough here. It’s time to put the boots away! X

    I won’t lie, I totally clicked on this post because of those cupcakes.

    My little eyes have lit up, I just soooo want one!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow! Well done on your running!! And staying away from the temptation of such delicious looking cakes. I wouldn’t be able to resist (part of the reason we don’t bake so much any more despite finding it therapeutic). I am so tempted to give in to a pair of saltwater sandals, I tend to live in birkenstocks but love the yellow pairs which show up on my instagram. #LittleLoves

    I love Jodi Picoult she is one of my all time favourite authors, the endings are never what ZI expect them to be which I always find so refreshing.

    Holy crap, those cupcakes are amazing!

  • Reply Mum Reinvented May 6, 2017 at 11:54 am

    Wow well done with your running, that’s amazing! I can barely walk 1km let alone run 10km! Love those cupcakes – I’m on a diet so I’m practically licking the screen! Have a great weekend!

    Those cupcakes look amazing. I used to drop in and out of #littleloves too. I love writing it though and I think I’ve manage every week this year! I don’t find much time to read or water heater TV though! I used to enjoy jodie Piccult. I really want to watch suits!

  • Reply Helen May 5, 2017 at 8:14 pm

    I absolutely love Jodi Picoult and have read Mercy such a long time ago, so can’t remember the storyline. I’m currently reading her Small Great Things, which is gripping! #LittleLoves

    Oh those cupcakes look amazing! Yum! Well done for completing 10k! I am in awe of anyone that runs long distance! You should be proud xx

    I know what you mean about being able to wear sandals again, I live in flip flops once the sun is out. Those cupcakes look adorable. Best of luck with your half marathon. #LittleLoves

    Those cupcakes look amazing! I just don’t have the self control to bake without just eating everything I make. Oops.
    Have you watched The Good Wife or House of Cards on Netflix, both are good if you like Suits.
    Enjoy the weekend xx

    • Reply Sonia May 5, 2017 at 12:05 pm

      Yes I’ve watched the Good Wife (Loved it) must try House of Cards next then. Thank you – you too xx
