    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…

    Wish You Were Here? Bombay Sapphire Gin Distillery in Laverstoke, …

    All we needed was the excuse of a 50th birthday and one Gin Cocktail Masterclass plus Gin Tour, was booked. 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…

    12 Things in 12 Months {Part 2}

    I sometimes hear people openly wishing the year to end, mentally erasing it as though it somehow had ‘disaster’ written all over it from day one. Whilst 2016 might fall into this category for me (for the record, it is probably the worst one yet) I would never want to completely remove it from my life or memory, because it…

    12 Things in 12 Months {Part 1}

    Looking back on the past 12 months, has become not just a pass-time, but a necessity of mine. Until I’ve written some kind of summary of the year – what went well and what I would do differently if I had my time again – I become stuck in the old one and unable to move forward. It can be quite debilitating,…

    More Pillows, Creepy Mr Christie and the First Mince Pie #…

    Remember I said a little while back, that I was worried I might have peaked too early with regard to Christmas? Well this week the pre-Christmas grumps hit with an almighty thump. That feeling that you’re never going to get on top of the cleaning or write all the Christmas cards. And trying to work out when the heck you’re actually going…

    The Massage Company, Camberley {Review}

    What’s the one thing you truly want at this time of year? A little peace and quiet? Enough money to buy all your loved ones the Christmas present they truly want? Right now, I would happily settle for one thing: a chance to relax. What is it about Christmas and the level of stress that seems to build up over…
