A Small Victory, Culinary Delights and Feeling Thankful #LittleLoves

Over the last five years, blogging has slowly become my favourite form of escapism. Although I have sometimes been sucked into this whole idea of needing to provide fresh material, these days I am just writing what I want, when I want, for me and no one else. What I’ve always loved more than anything, is writing a post that really resonates with readers. Last week’s post about embracing the…

A New Book, Discovering Foundation and the Difference a Year …

It’s Friday again? Wow, that week went fast! I have a pretty full diary today (I’m writing this on Thursday) and tomorrow has become rather chocka too what with an unfortunate roots (of the hair kind) incident that needs sorting asap. However,  I always have time for that special moment in each week when I get to share some of my…

Growing Up, Embracing the Dress and Justin Timberlake #LittleLoves

Have you been enjoying the sunshine this week? I realised yesterday that we haven’t had any rain at all over the Easter holidays – I reckon that’s a first! The amazing temperatures at the weekend got me panicking thinking about our summer holiday which after much deliberation, I finally booked this week. I think we’ve made a good decision. Apologies…

Catastrophe, Early Mornings and a New Job #LittleLoves 

You know, I *almost* decided not to share a Little Loves post this week. I’ve been having a bit of a pity party of late, wondering what my blog has to offer the world but so many of you said that you love my conversational style and in particular these weekly posts, so here I am! I want to thank anyone who took…

Fond Memories, a Perfect Moment and Total Relaxation #LittleLoves

Here we are again, on the cusp of the weekend and another week down. Since I last wrote on this here blog, I’ve been to the Alps and back. I’ve also experienced snow, sunshine, rain and freezing fog. No wonder I’m having trouble working out what season we are in! Either way, Spring we are so ready for you – please…

Room, Spring Flowers and a Confession #LittleLoves 

Today I come bearing Spring flowers. Why? Because it’s almost the weekend and I’m jetting off to the Alps for a few days tomorrow. Yippee! I should really be getting my house in order and sorting out the washing but I’ve begun to relish this part of my week –  looking back and focussing on the good bits, however small or insignificant. So here…

A New Diet, Unforgotten and All the Pastels #LittleLoves

I don’t know where this week has gone (mostly frittered away on the phone to Virgin mobile but hey, that’s a long and boring story that no one wants to hear!). I’ve been trying to get on top of my paperwork this week which hasn’t been hugely successful but I have at least applied for a new driver’s licence. Tell…

A New Season, Pretty Frills and Some Great TV #LittleLoves

I naively thought that as the calendar tipped into March, we would see the arrival of Spring; by that, I mean warmer climes. Sadly this week I’ve braved one too many baltic dog walks and my beautiful pastel Adidas trainers that I bought last week remain firmly in my wardrobe. Come on Spring, we are so ready for you! We all know that I will probably…

A Challenging Read, the Joy of Sky Q and Early …

Have you missed me? We had a fabulous week away, bar an unfortunate ski collision resulting in a bad knee and a blocked ear which is still making my life a misery after 10 days. The only ‘up’ side to the blocked ear is that I can’t hear my husband snoring. Absolute bliss I tell you! However I also can’t…
