#LittleLoves – Horrid Henry, The A Word & Calendar Creation

Well it’s officially the weekend once again and unlike past weeks Paul and I haven’t any plans as such so I’m hoping to relax indoors given that winter is upon us, although saying that I have promised J time on his swegway tomorrow which should force us to spend some time out and about in the fresh air before we no doubt run back indoors to defrost.

So without any further rambling I’ll get to the point and list my #LittleLoves from the past seven days.



J is a bugger for bringing home books from School, he doesn’t particularly enjoy reading and for that reason I often find myself asking him why his book bag is once again empty. Having spent time within the School reading with other children I opted into buying a few books for J and I to read together at home without the need for him to fetch books to and from School, this alleviates the pressure for both J and I whilst raising the standards of his reading.

Although J was adamant that he dislikes ‘Horrid Henry‘ he’s made a start on reading ‘Horrid Henry Rocks’ earlier this week and although he’s found a few words a little difficult to decipher he seems to be enjoying the storyline, it certainly seems to satisfy his sense of humour!

I’ve been really impressed with his efforts at home this week in terms of both his reading and writing and have already made a start on ordering further reads to share at home.

It may be a little early but ‘Magic‘ have Christmas covered as they launched the DAB ‘Magic Xmas’ station earlier this week and who am I to argue? Christmas is well on the way and for that reason I’ve given in, turned on and tuned in to the Christmas classics which have helped to get me in the mood for the festive season.

Having a son ‘on the spectrum’ I was sure to watch the first series of the BBC Drama ‘The A Word‘, not only does this series cover a subject very close to my heart but it is also filmed within my local area, my parents home village to be exact.

One year later and ‘The A Word‘ has returned to our screens for a second series which started earlier this week, both my husband and I found ourselves relating to and understanding many of the issues highlighted within the first episode and will be sure to continue watching this series with interest and admiration.

Quite a few years ago I decided to create a family calendar to give to our parents as a Christmas gift, it was such a hit that eight years down the line I am now creating a range of these calendars including key dates and events for most of our family. This calls for some serious organisation of my ‘files and folders’ as since August I’ve kept most of my photos on my phone which isn’t entirely useful nor helpful given the task in hand.

I’ve therefore spent this week organising literally thousands of photos into month-by-month folders which I will shortly use to create a collection of montages from which will then be featured within said family calendars.

Other than wrapping up warm with many layers of wool based clothing I haven’t really worn anything of interest this week. However, since having my hair dyed last week I have switched from wearing my usual shade of ‘purple’ lippy to a rose-red which seems slightly more festive given that Christmas is coming.

And Lastly

I may well have mentioned this within a fair few posts over the past couple of days but I thought I ought to include ‘Bonfire Night‘ within this weeks #LittleLoves as it was indeed a fantastic, fun-filled, event which I very much enjoyed both with family and friends.

    Love the idea of creating a family calendar! Sounds like you’ve been busy planning and prepping for it.
    Your new lip colour really suits you! I want to get back into the habit of wearing lipstick more. x
