Welcome to this weeks #LittleLoves, sadly there isn’t a whole load to say as our house was struck down with the local sickness bug this week. The cross was firmly placed on the door and we have all spent the past seven days recovering. I haven’t spent a great deal of time doing much of anything other than cleaning whilst feeling delicate.
Forgive me for I have sinned, I have read barely anything other than blogs this week. I have however spent a rather large chunk of time browsing Pinterest for various ideas.
I have finally got the hang of the virtual noticeboard and am actually enjoying pinning, posting upon and perusing Pinterest.
I am a bit behind with the times in terms of Television. Our satellite dish is temporarily out of action aka in the garage whilst the extension gets built and due to this I am reliant upon downloads and on-demand TV.
I therefore didn’t realise that the new series of Gogglebox had started the other week and have had the pleasure of ‘double bubble’ this week as my husband and I have caught up with the Gogglers behind the box. Thankfully I am now aware that Gogglebox has resumed and my Friday nights will be all the better for it.
Other than the radio blaring over the builders I haven’t really listened to anything specific this week.
I did however watch (and listen to) a rather fantastic video of a band called ‘Too Many Zooz‘ playing in a subway. I’d love to see these guys busking, they are certainly different to say the least!
I have continued to supply the builders with a regular stash of sugar, this weeks cakes and bakes have included the all essential autumnal snack ‘Gingerbread‘. I bloody love the smell of gingerbread baking in the oven, it seems to resonate throughout the house.
I followed the usual Bero recipe adding a tad more treacle which resulted in a rather sticky ginger loaf. The builders didn’t seem to mind as it all disappeared!
I seem to have developed ‘a thing’ for chunky knit cardigans recently. Last week I spent my pennies on my first ever short-sleeved cardigan and this week with the temperature dropping I have found myself returning to longer sleeve knits.
I often get teased by my children for living in cardigans. My kids once referred to a particular cardigan as my dressing gown as I wore it so often. I decided to treat myself to another oversized, chunky knit black cardigan to replace ‘the dressing gown’ in time for Winter.
After totally hammering my phone last week I realised that its high time I got hold of an external mobile phone charger, by which I literally mean a hand-held mobile phone charger which I can charge my rather power-hungry IPhone 6 Plus from when out and about.
The charger arrived this afternoon along with some new hair slides, new hair combs and some stocking fillers for the kids. God I love my post lady she always knows how to brighten my day!
