My First Ever #LittleLoves Post

LittleLoves/ personal

This week I feel like I have nothing to write about and have been looking for some fab linkies to join in with to give me a bit of inspiration. I’ve heard #Littleloves being mentioned over and over again through the years and I’ve featured Morgana and her business on the blog before but I’ve never actually joined in so today I thought I’d do just that. I’m sat here with a poorly Bugs, he’s at home from school and we have just basically sat snuggled on the sofa all day enjoying each others warmth… Shhhhh don’t tell Daddy we haven’t done anything 😉


I’m really trying hard to get better with my reading habits this year, so far I am on my third book of the year! I am loving just putting my phone down and going to bed a bit earlier each night to enjoy my book. The book I am currently reading is The State We’re In by Adele Parks, I’ve got about 100 pages to go and although it took some getting in to I am really loving it now and find myself wanting to go and start reading it during the day too.


I’ve just finished watching the second series of Touch on Netflix which stars Kiefer Sutherland as a Dad who can’t connect with his emotional challenged son Jake, everything changes when he realised that through numbers and patterns Jake can predict the future. It’s not the best thing I’ve ever watched but it is definitely worth watching.

I’m currently waiting for Boo to finish school so we can start watching ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ which came on Netflix today… we’ve been waiting for what seems like ages and I’ve had to stop myself watching it while she’s been at school 😉


I have to say I don’t listen to a great deal of music I find myself quite sensitive to unnecessary noise nowadays, I’m not sure if it’s having kids or there is something actually wrong with my ears. This is a real problem for my other half as he loves all kind of music and usually plays it really loud so you can imagine this might cause a few arguments especially when he’s blaring out dance tunes at 1am on a Saturday morning and he accidentally puts the music through the bedroom speaker (where I’m fast asleep) instead of the dining room one!!! Grrrr! Anyway one thing that we both do love is listening to waves to get us to sleep so we have created a playlist on Spotify and set it running when we settle down for the night. It’s really quite lovely to wake up to the sound of waves too.


My book club had a cocktail night last night and we made some amazing cocktails, we meet once a month to discuss the books that we usually haven’t read 😉 It’s always nice to just sit and have a meal, drink a few glasses of wine and catch up on each others lives. I wouldn’t really have a social life if it wasn’t for my book club girls!

It’s cocktail night at book club tonight. Cheers Instagram ?

I’ve nothing to share from me this week but Boo started Guides this week so here she is in her brand new Guides uniform all excited about her first meeting. She had a really fab time and wishes that she could go every single night 😉

and Lastly…

We’ve also been making plans for holidays during 2017. We are heading down to Cornwall for a week in February to blow away the cobwebs and then fingers crossed in May we are off to the Dominican Republic for two weeks. We have never had a family beach holiday so I am really looking forward to that!

    How much has the guide uniform change?! Just goes to show how old I am! I am such a slow reader! No way could I have read three books already! Hope you have had a lovely week xx

    Oh you’ve made me really miss my bookclub! I haven’t joined a new one since I moved – my old one was often all about the drinks too 😉

    So lovely to have you joining in with LittleLoves Sonia!
    I’ve not even finished one book yet, I really must make some time in the evenings to read.
    Love the idea of having a ‘waves’ playlist! One of my favourite sounds in the world is waves crashing on the shore, I find it so relaxing. I’m off to load up a playlist on Spotify right now, thanks for the tip! xx

    She looks so happy in her Guides uniform – and so grown up too, I guess uniform does that. Have a wonderful time in Cornwall – it’s our favourite place x

    Touch on Netflix sounds good – the sort of thing we enjoy watching too!

    I’ve started to get back into reading proper books this year as I have a whole stack of books I’ve piled up but never got round to reading.

  • Reply Stacie January 15, 2017 at 8:40 am

    Wow, I consider myself a reader but 3 books already! That’s good going. I haven’t read any Adele Parks before, although I see her books pop up in the blogging world quite often. Enjoy your weekend xx

    Third book already this year, I really need to take on board your advice of putting the phone down and heading to bed earlier.
