Little Loves: September 2017

I sit writing this in a hotel room in Denver, Colorado.  It’s Friday morning here, though if you’re reading this back home in England it’ll already be the afternoon.  It still doesn’t quite feel real, even though I spent the whole of yesterday – 19 hours in total – travelling to get here, leaving the house at…

Little Loves: August 2017

We’re currently coming to the end of Week Five of the summer holidays and it’s certainly been a month to remember for all sorts of reasons. Here are all the little things I’ve been loving lately throughout August… READ I’ve not read very much this month at all.  We’ve either been out and about having fun or I’ve…

Little Loves: July 2017

Time is a funny old thing isn’t it.  All of the other months so far this year have absolutely whizzed by and yet July has felt like the longest month on record to me.  I think it’s because we’ve all been on our knees with exhaustion, just willing it to be the end of the term so…

Little Loves: June 2017

Well, that was June (I think!) – I feel like I’ve blinked and missed it because it’s gone so quickly.  How are we half way through the year already?!  June has been a bit of an emotional month, full of lovely things and important milestones as well as a couple of less-lovely and unexpected things that popped…

A Weird Week

Last week was weird. There’s no other way to describe it.  I’ve been feeling quite unsettled as a result of all the things that happened – probably because it was all within a relatively short space of time.  And also – I’m realising as I’m writing this – because all of it was completely beyond my…

Little Loves: May 2017

How is it the end of May already?!  I swear I was only writing last month’s Little Loves post a week or so ago.  Summer feels like it’s decided to arrive, it’s half term next week and we’ve had a busy month.  Here are all the little things I’ve been loving lately throughout May… Read…

Me: Thirty-Four

A couple of weeks ago I turned thirty-four.  Thirty-four!  The words sound alien because in my head I feel about sixteen.  And yet here I am, more than double the age I feel, somewhat bemused as to where the time has gone and how I’ve ended up here. All in all it was a pretty…

Making New Friends

A few weeks ago on a lovely, sunny Saturday, the girls and I headed up to Trentham Gardens for the afternoon.  Trentham is somewhere we go several times a year – it’s one of our favourite places to visit as there are loads of things there for the girls to enjoy whatever the season – the lakeside walk and…

40 Things Before I’m 40: Annual Update

On my birthday last year I posted a list of 40 things I want to do, achieve and experience before I turn 40 years old in 2023.  I’d originally started the list when I turned thirty but I hadn’t launched my blog at that point so it existed solely in the relative privacy of one of my numerous notebooks…
