Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you’ve had a fabulous week?!
Its been another busy one here with a packed weekend full of Family and Friends,
a week of trying to get last minute work bits sorted before the summer holidays (summer school prep, show planning and the bane of my life timetabling),
not that I break completely for the summer but a reduced workload is always happily accepted. I’ve also been madly making lists of things such as summer holiday plans, friends i must catch up with, preschool teacher present ideas, school uniform LB will need and things I’d like to sort around the house as well as my daily growing to do list!
A few times this week I’ve just taken myself out into my garden to breathe. Sometimes I let things get on top of me-I’m easily overwhelmed and instead of just cracking on i tend to collapse for a little bit, so I’ve been taking the care to stop once in a while and just sit. Also last thing before bed instead of my usual Instagram flick I have lit an incense stick and just laid on my back focus on my breathing
-i must admit to having woken up with a lot more energy than normal each day-though i can’t promise it lasts.
Anyway enough jabbering on and lets get on with this weeks Little Loves.
Ok I charged up my kindle-thats progress really I must admit.
I’m going to attempt to get back into Girl On A Train-it hasn’t really taken me about 6 months to reach the half way point honestly.
I also purchased the new RED Magazine-its always been a fave for the career and life sections more than anything, but KA has got me checking out the fashion pages a bit more as she’s been putting beautiful things from there on her Insta Stories recently.
While clearing up the house this week I’ve put the LaLaLand soundtrack on.
I still haven’t seen the film-it’s on one of those lists i was talking about above and haven’t been listening to much music at all recently so it was nice to step completely out of my normal and have that on in the background.
I love catching Daddy and son time! B hates having his photo taken so a candid shot means you get the natural look (imagine Chandler from Friends and you get the faces that normally happen-lol).
P has had a massive leap this last week or so and has realised he can climb up on everything and clap his hands. It is wonderful to get a round of applause for everything i do but now i have to have eyes everywhere as once he’s got his eyes set on something he will get it-he’s a rather stubborn monkey!
Spaghetti Bolognese, Gammon, Sweet Potato Fries and Broccoli and then last night chicken stirfry. The wonderful thing with cooking now is P has started to join us and instead of buying pouches I’ve been blending up our food or giving it to him whole. The amount of cleaning now required after dinner has quadrupled.
The sun has come out again and Parker has been wearing his little Next Rompers these are just so cute and there are quite a few others I am coveting. So easy for him to et around in. And I’ve even pulled out a dress. Ok a Maxi one but a dress none the less-I got so many compliments at preschool I obviously look a right mess most days-lol!
This week we’ve had some lovely days out. Last Friday we had a family day as my cousin returned from Australia after 20 months. It was wonderful to catch up with her properly-we have been face timing while she was away but to see her face to face and give her a big hug was fab! Saturday we went to my niece and nephews football club fundraiser where LB was shocked to see this storm trooper moving and talking to him-poor guy who had to dress up in that for the day. Sunday we headed over to my sister in laws for a friends birthday BBQ. Plenty of Pimms, Prosecco and giggles enjoyed there and then on Wednesday after preschool we headed down to a new local park and some of Beaus friends had the same idea, so it was wonderful to see them all playing so nicely together. It made me a little emotional that they will all be separated in a few weeks as summer starts and their school lives start at a variety of schools in September.
