Making Decisions, Raising a Smile and Growing Old (Dis)gracefully #…

Where actually has all the sunshine gone? I think you northerners must have pinched it! We’ve been shrouded in this horrible freezing fog all week and I’m really beginning to wish for January to end and Spring to be a little closer than it actually is. We’ve had decorators in the house this week, meaning that my ‘Playroom to Snug’ transformation is at…

3 Hearty Winter Soups to Warm Your Cockles

Let’s just get one thing straight before we kick off…I am no domestic goddess. Phew, I just wanted to make sure that we’re all well aware of the facts and that I’m not misleading anyone. So why a post about ‘hearty winter soups’? I hear you ask. Well if there ever was a time that you needed something to warm you…

Frosty Walks, Impulse Buys and a Little Treat from ITV #…

What a wonderfully, cold and frosty week it’s been down here in deepest darkest Berkshire. I know that some of you have had rain so I’m sorry to rub your nose in it but breathing in that crisp, fresh air has been so welcome after the thick depressing fog of last week. We’ve also had sunshine, making for the most stunning…

With three months to look forward to the event, Sunday 15th January couldn’t come soon enough. If ever there was a gin-lover’s paradise, I think the Bombay Sapphire Gin Distillery in Laverstoke (near Basingstoke) is it. Before registering we were greeted by…

Cosy Nights, Winter Soups and a New Page Turner #LittleLoves

Welcome to Friday! It’s been a quiet kind of week my end with nothing amazing to report. Sometimes those weeks are a blessing aren’t they? I’ve been practicing my One Word for this year which is ‘Release‘ by purchasing fleecy PJs and allowing myself to cosy up of an evening. Perfect for all this snow that was forecast (*cough* what snow?!). Ooh, I’ve…

New Year, New….Word

If you’ve been keeping up with my various oversharing writing outlets for a while now, you will know that a new year is a big thing for me. Whilst I’m not a huge fan of making dramatic resolutions (I tend to go all out initially, petering out rather pathetically about 2 months in) I do love a fresh start. I know some people find January…

Snowless Les Gets, Burnt Crisps and Saved by Netflix #LittleLoves

I’m almost too scared to start this post. Why? Because we’ve said goodbye to Christmas, welcomed in a new year and been on holiday since I last sat down to construct a Little Loves post – certainly too much to squeeze into a 500 word post! In many ways, the festive period passed by in a whirlwind. During the run…
