Whilst I usually write my weekly #LittleLoves post on a Friday evening I decided to give it a miss yesterday as both Paul and I were rather busy bees with work followed by an evening out with friends.
With it being the weekend you’d most likely expect that I’d have the time to sit and write blog posts but in actual fact my weekends seem to be a lot busier than the weekdays at present. Due to this I may well begin writing my #LittleLoves posts on a Saturday from time to time simply to make my life a little easier in the long run.
So getting back to the original point of this blog post, here are a few of my #LittleLoves from the past week gone by.
I really really need to get myself back into books but I’ve simply not had the time nor the patience to sit and read. I have however read a few articles and blog posts throughout the week through the BlogLovin plaform which have kept me entertained from time to time.
Whilst carrying out my weekly voluntary assistance within School I came upon the oddest animation I think I’ve ever seen. The children were asked to watch ‘Alma‘ which they were then given the story to read over as a catalyst for creative writing.
The colour schemes used within this animation reminded me of Disneys ‘Frozen’ yet the storyline was far more disturbing than any Disney film I’ve seen as of yet. It’s certainly worth a watch although not something I will be sharing with my own children as of yet.
Following subscribing to ‘Amazon Music Unlimited’ earlier this month I have started to put together a number of playlists to listen to and enjoy, one of which I have simply titled ‘Timeless Tunes’. This particular playlist includes a number of cult-pop classics including The Arctic Monkeys ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’.
There’s something about this song that throws me into a slightly mental mood as I cannot resist from bopping along to the beat.
I finally found the time to throw together my first ever batch of ‘Sticky Toffee Pudding’ following a rather special recipe handed to me by a close friend whose Nana was famous for her fantastic puddings especially her ‘Sticky Toffee Pudding’ which was quite simply to die for.
The above image isn’t my own as we’d already eaten our portions of pudding by the time I’d considered capturing any images!
I wasn’t expecting amazing results first time around but was pleasantly surprised to find that having followed the recipe correctly the results were heavenly. It must have been good as even our son J who is an incredibly fussy eater gave this a thumbs up!
I have since sliced, bagged and have frozen a large amount of Sticky Toffee Pudding along with pots of sauce which will no doubt be enjoyed over time.
With the weather being rather wintry I’ve spent the majority of the week wrapped up warm in hats, scarves and gloves. Earlier this week however I treated myself to a couple of dresses to add to my wardrobe, one of which I wore out last night for a meal with friends.
We finally saw snow this week, it may not have been a massive amount but it was certainly enough to throw a few snowballs and to build a snowman from. It was E’s first ever encounter of the white stuff and as you can imagine she was rather excited by the experience.
Both J & E thoroughly enjoyed their snow day despite having to go to School and despite the fact that sledging was unfortunately not an option due to the snow melting only hours later. Heres hoping that we see a little more of the white stuff in the next few weeks so we can finally go sliding through the snow in our sledges.
Thanks again for reading my blog and I hope that you enjoyed this weeks #LittleLoves. If you fancy sharing some of your own #LittleLoves then why not join in either through your own blog post or by leaving a comment below, I would love to hear what your #LittleLoves might be.
