After a whirlwind trip to Wales for 48 hours, only returning this evening (Thursday), I wasn’t expecting to write a Little Loves post this week but I just can’t stay away! I love storing up some of the best bits of my week in anticipation of sharing them with you; it really does give me a more positive outlook on life. Here goes…
Okay so I read about 5 pages of ‘The Trouble with Goats and Sheep’ which I count as progress. I promise to actually have an opinion on it by this time next week!
I’ve been blogging for a little over 5 years now. You might therefore be fooled into thinking that I know everything there is to know about the world of blogging. As with everything there’s always something new to learn and I read a fantastic post by Melyssa Griffin today with 17 tips on things you need to do before hitting publish on a blog post – a great one for all you bloggers out there. I finally know what an ‘Alt Tag’ means!
I love a BBC drama, they really have got the edge over the other channels in my opinion. The first episode of Paula aired last Thursday at 9pm, I have recorded this week’s to watch when there are no kids around! I think I experienced the whole range of emotions in the space of one hour – cringed during the graphic sex scene, closed my eyes when the unexpected horror element popped up and recoiled in shock during the violent murder scene. I did question whether I would watch it again but it’s drawn me in enough to want to know what happens next. I’ll keep you posted!
I took my girls to see ‘A Dog’s Purpose’ last Saturday evening. Have you watched it? I would love to hear your opinion because I think I’m possibly the only female in the country to remain dry eyed. No matter how hard I tried or how many dogs died, I couldn’t shed a tear! It was quite a sweet film that one of my girls enjoyed whilst the other one just got frustrated at the dodgy theology of it all!
A long car journey means a whole range of music being played. We took it in turns to choose an artist ranging from Sia through to Cher’s ‘Turn Back Time’! My favourite tune of the weekend goes to Adele with ‘When We Were Young’. I had forgotten just how amazing this song is!
I’ve been wearing my Invisalign braces for 100 days now and I am finally beginning to see some real progress. I get so many people asking question about it so will probably write a full blog at some point but for now this collection of photographs should demonstrate the difference 4 months has made.
Left is before and right is now. Only 10 months to go!
We’ve had some lovely sunshine in the south east of England this week so I’ve enjoyed wearing this relatively new purchase from Oasis. Being someone who usually opts for plain colours, this bright print is an unusual one for me but I’ve had loads of compliments on it this week.
A purchase? I think that counts! I started a new job a few months ago, looking after the social media for a local company. Last week I received my first payment and Cox & Cox managed to lure me in with their 20% off sale almost immediately! It hasn’t arrived yet but I’m rather excited as it is an item I’ve had my eye on for about a year now. Watch this space.
This weekend we’ve been invited to join some friends at a silent cinema screening of Top Gun. I have a feeling my friend might be confused with the silent disco that is on afterwards but I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes! Either way, here’s to a weekend of sunshine and plenty of fresh air.
