#LittleLoves – August 2020

As if summer is almost over, where the heck did the time go? Seriously, how can it be almost September?! I guess I’d best get with the times and give you the lowdown on August, here goes…


I’d best hold my hands up and come clean; I’ve read next to nothing this month. Although I’ve got a few things stored and sat on my kindle ready to read, I just haven’t had the time nor inclination to bother with books. #LittleLoves - August 2020


Throughout August Paul and I have continued to watch ‘Call The Midwife’, though we are obviously snails when it comes to box-set-binging as we’re yet to complete series nine.

To celebrate our thirteenth anniversary, Paul very kindly gifted me ‘Last Christmas’ on DVD. It’s a film that I wanted to watch late last year, but due to the annual Christmas chaos, I never got around to viewing. I must say, it wasn’t quite the romantic story that I had expected and midway through the film, Paul blurted out a random guess as to how it may conclude and he was absolutely right… this spoilt it somewhat but still, it was worth a watch.

Earlier this month I put together a sort of summer playlist filled with upbeat, happy pop tunes including the likes of Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Shawn Mendes, Dua Lipa, and other chart hits to keep us all smiling and it certainly seemed to do the trick.

Having promised our princess that I’d make her a Barbie birthday cake, I set about the tricky task with icing in one hand and a glass of wine in the other… Much to my delight (and Es amazement) after the said cake had been completed I am pleased to say that it looked pretty good. I wouldn’t say that it was  ‘Barbie brilliant’ but it did the job and tasted awesome.

Following being spoilt on my birthday, I’ve spent the past week or two enjoying the luxury of wearing new nightdresses and pajamas thanks – it’s been bliss!

And Lastly

Summer has come to an end all too quickly – Though we’ve had months off from school/ work it suddenly feels all too quick to come to an end. I’ve rather enjoyed homeschooling and being able to spend time with my family without the worries of work and such-like.

We may not have gone abroad nor done quite as much as we would usually do during the summer but we’ve had fun as a family and we’ve enjoyed some marvelous memories.

      I’ve done two tiers most years for the kids and have even done a six tier for my folks 60th a few years back. I’m no cake expert so it can be done!
