A Room Update, Bare Ankles and Discovering the F Word #…

Hello world! I took a little hiatus from the blog and it felt good. Whilst it’s done nothing for my stats, it’s done everything for my mind and sometimes (all the time) that’s more important. But here I am at the end of February, not wanting to miss out on an opportunity to share the things I’ve been loving. Although…

Discovering Luther, My First Trip to Birmingham and a Hint …

Hello there my friends, I hope this post finds you well. If you are new to my blog then you may not be familiar with my ‘Little Loves’ posts but basically, on the last Friday of every month, I share some of the things that have been cheering me up this month. As my ‘one word’ for the year is…

Twinkly Lights, Even More Podcasts and My New Favourite Outfit #…

I know, I know, I’m six days late and it’s no longer December. I should have posted December’s Little Loves post last Friday but guess what? I was stuck in the ‘Chrimbo Limbo’ fog, the same way that you were. As my word for 2019 is ‘Gratitude’ and these monthly round up posts fit in really well with this theme,…

Chocolatey Goodness, Sparkly Jumpers and Inspiring Podcasts #LittleLoves

I’ve been fairly absent on my blog this month and whilst there’s no real need for me to apologise (it is my blog after all) I’m going to anyway. Sometimes, when life is a bit tricky, I find it difficult to get my thoughts together and focusing on writing feels fairly impossible. I’ve missed it though – putting finger to…

Cosy Jumpers, Question Time and Fresh Starts #LittleLoves

September is a busy month; I’m sure it’s the same for most of us. Firstly there’s a new school year to contend with (finding a ‘new normal’ always takes longer than anticipated) and in this house, the new term is closely followed by our wedding anniversary plus two birthdays on consecutive days at the end of the month. I don’t…

The Cruising Life, Incredible Views and a Celebration #LittleLoves

It really feels like summer is drawing to a close doesn’t it? I can’t believe the difference between those glorious, steaming hot days at the beginning of August to the shorter, unseasonably cooler days we’ve been experiencing this week. Before we get all maudlin about not being ready for winter boots and long sleeves, let’s look back on August. It’s…

Summer Bunting, Facing Fears and a Broadway Show #LittleLoves

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] seem to begin every monthly Little Loves post by talking about the weather but it would be rude to bypass this one – this summer is the gift that keeps on giving! I cannot believe how fortunate we have been with the sunshine and tropical temperatures. It also looks set to carry on into the first half of the…

Pink Denim, Soaking up the Rays and a Trip to …

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hat a month June has been. I mean I’ve had to pinch myself on numerous occasions, is this really England and not the mediterranean? Our garden room really has come into its own this month, especially with the Word Cup being on. The space and big TV has made it a popular choice for 13 year old boys! I’ve also…

Wisteria Heaven, Embracing the Sunshine and THAT Wedding #LittleLoves

[dropcap]H[/dropcap]onestly, the month of May has whizzed by so fast. We’ve celebrated an 18th birthday, nursed a broken finger (same person), survived the start of GCSEs and soaked up every drop of sunshine. Let’s take a moment to appreciate the amazing weather we’ve been having. Please tell me this is not the beginning and end of our summer! It’s been…
