#LittleLoves – Bugs, Rugs & Bad Weather

Half term has been a total waste of time thanks to the entire household falling ill with the local bug which has struck each one of us in turn throughout the week. It seems that it is now my turn to suffer with the flu like symptoms rendering me early to bed on the one night that we are kid free thanks my parents who are kindly babysitting.

We have all these great plans and ideas but when the time arrives we are pissed upon from a great height. Bloody typical isn’t it?

Despite little old Doris waving her fists outside whilst we were festering indoors feeling like death warmed up, we’ve somehow managed to make the best of a shitty situation and enjoy our time together as a family.… Read more from this post

#LittleLoves – Cards, Checks, Crafting And Time As A Couple

Can you believe that it’s half term already? It feels as if it was only Christmas the other week yet Valentines Day has already passed us by and we are now rolling like out of control Easter Eggs towards Spring.

I’m starting to wonder whether some kind of ‘fast forward function’ is secretly activated upon becoming a parent. Each time another kid is added to the mix the speed is magically increased rendering you unable to distinguish a week from a weekend.  Time just seems to slip away and it’s bloody frightening!

To save wasting further time I’ll get to the point and share my #LittleLoves from the past seven days but feels more like two or three days in all honesty.… Read more from this post

#LittleLoves – Its All About The Old School

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LittleLoves, I’m sorry it’s a bit late in the day but we’ve had a well-deserved night off from the little ones which we have thoroughly enjoyed.

It’s Valentines Weekend and we have a whole load of things planned to celebrate the occasion especially given that come Valentines Eve (Monday) Paul and I will have been together for twelve years! Crikey…that’s almost a life sentence!

I have a few things up my sleeve lined up for both Paul and the kids to celebrate and will share these over the next few days.

Anyhow, less of the ‘Valentines’ stuff as I’ll get onto that in another post, here are this weeks #LittleLoves.… Read more from this post

#LittleLoves – Books For Bloggers & Bobble Hats

I literally feel as if I have not stopped this week, I cannot seem to catch a break. E hasn’t been at all well with what started as a cold and now seems to have developed into an ear infection. I’ve suffered with an infection following my recent tooth extraction and I’ve been so busy with house-work, work-work and looking after my little ones that my body has become run down.

As you may have gathered, I haven’t had a great deal of leisure time but I will share a few of those very brief moments that I somehow managed to park my backside and catch my breath.… Read more from this post

#LittleLoves – Bears, Beads And Beach Themes

It hasn’t been the best week in all honesty, I had a tooth extracted on Monday and since then I have been consuming vast amounts of pain killers in an attempt to feel next to normal.

Five days later I am still in agony, my gum looks like the area may be infected and I am now having to rinse with mouthwash each meal time and add antibiotics to my current drug intake. As you can imagine I haven’t done a great deal whilst in my current state so please excuse my rather dull #LittleLoves items for this week.


Amongst the piles of presents that E received for Christmas were a set of  Tony Ross’s ‘Little Princess’ books.… Read more from this post

#LittleLoves – Maleficent, Magic And A Touch Of Pink

Welcome to another week of #LittleLoves, a post in which I share a few of the many things that I have particularly enjoyed or have taken a shine to throughout the past seven days. This week has been pretty hum-drum, we’ve not done anything particularly outstanding yet there has still been plenty to love.


I haven’t done a great deal of reading other than the usual checking of emails. I have however received some rather lovely emails from a number of companies that have all asked me to carry out reviews on particular items on their behalf.

I will be sharing some of these with you in the near future and am very much looking forward to getting back to reviewing random goodies throughout 2017.… Read more from this post
