#LittleLoves – Beautiful People, Bobble Hats & Blog On

Has it really been a week since I last wrote my list of #LittleLoves? It seriously doesn’t feel like seven days have passed since I last sat at my laptop to review the week gone by.

With being in such a strict routine I find that time slips through my fingers which seems such a shame since things as we currently know it may soon change.


I’ve been back to the Bailie, by which I mean that I’m back to reading Natasha Bailie, one of my favourite bloggers who almost a year ago inspired me to become a blogger myself.

#LittleLoves - Beautiful People, Bobble Hats & Blog On

Natasha Bailie is an awe-inspiring vlogger that creates stunningly smooth, movie quality, parenting and lifestyle vlogs. Whilst I may now have the Mac, the software and the camera required to create such vlogs I will never have the level of talent nor creativity of Natasha.

Not only does Natasha Vlog but she also blogs over at www.themilkstand.co.uk, which of course having the ‘Bailie bug’ I habitually read. Natasha and I have children of a similar age, her son Max is ever so slightly older than E and I always find it interesting to read what’s going on a few months down the line.

Max recently turned four-years old and whilst reading Nat’s post upon having a four-year old I found myself welling up and feeling rather stressed about the concept of our little lady going off to school come September.

I have been so lucky to be able to spend almost the past four-years with our little lady and I’m not entirely sure whether I’ll be able to hold it together without the company of my little Princess each afternoon. Life as I know it is going to change and it may be sooner than expected.



After almost two months off-screen Home And Away finally returned following the winter holiday.

The bush fire storyline has certainly kept me on the edge of my seat that and Ash aka George Mason of course. No matter how many people continue to insist upon informing me that Home & Away is teenage Aussie cheese, I for one am hooked.



Paul and I had a heavy cull of our CD collection not so long ago. Since then I have continued to listen to Music in either MP3 or streaming format.

Whilst I have endless amounts of Music stored on random PCs and my own laptop I have very little on my phone. My phone tends to go everywhere with me and is usually my first port of call when I fancy finding a tune to get down to.


I recently threw some cash at ITunes and downloaded some of my old-time favourites including a little bit of Marilyn Manson. I don’t care how old this track may be, there’s nothing better to sweep a floor or wash pots with than ‘The Beautiful People’.



I am totally anal when it comes to organisation. I have a list for this and a timetable for that, if you live with me then you either run with the routine or run for the hills.

J has that many extra curricular activities and random homework’s throughout the week that there has come a need to create a ‘timetable’ to keep us jugglers from dropping all plates which we desperately try to keep spinning.

I flipping love a timetable, they are almost on a level with a list. There’s something so satisfying about having everything planned to precision that I got ever so slightly carried away and also made a daytime food schedule for E. I do realise that I am very sad but whatever floats my boat right?



I finally got around to ordering myself a new bobble hat from Amazon, its blinking Baltic out there and I don’t care how much of a tit I look so long as my ears don’t ache from the cold.

I really like my new bobble hat but unfortunately it seems to have attracted a few adverse comments from the boys by which I am not suggesting that builders are wolf whistling at me as I walk through the town, I am in fact referring to Paul and J. 

According to the lads it appears that I have either maimed a fox and stuck its furry tail onto my hat or I have chopped a small hole into the tip of the hat and pulled my own hair through like some kind of half-hat pony tail.

I still love this bobble hat despite the comments simply because my ears are now snug and warm whilst out on the school run. The lads can laugh all they like, I’m still going to wear my ‘dead animal’ because it’s dead warm!


And Lastly

I had completely forgotten that Blog On tickets for September went on sale on Wednesday and so drove off to the dentist for another f-ing filling totally unaware that I’d missed out on the early bird tickets. Thankfully my good friend Angela gave me the nudge when I got back and I just managed to grab a ticket before they sold out.

I will be attending not one but two Blog On events this year and let me tell you, I’m really rather excited about this! Hold onto your hats (the dead animal ones too) for the many ‘Blog On’ posts which are yet to come.

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.

    I’m totally with you about having a timetable. The calendar in my kitchen is my bible, if it’s not on there, then it isn’t happening. I really need to get myself a ha t for when we go to Disneyland Paris at the end of the month – I never thought to look on Amazon.

    I’m turning into a bit of planning freak now. I have a week to view diary, a month to view calendar and a day to a page diary. It all works for me! My hat needs washing as it’s dirty but it’s too damn cold to go outside without it!

    Oh hurrayy I am going to Blog On too. I love it each year. I don’t know if I will make any of the big ones I normally attend so it’s good to have these ones to social and network at closer to home. I am the same with my list and routines my parents laugh how scheduled our lives are. Glad I am not the only one. Hope you had a good weekend. #littleloves

      There’s something great about being organized

    Love that hat! It’s needed with this cold snap we’re having at the moment.
    I’m gutted I’ll miss Blog On again, it always seems to fall on a day when we already have plans, boo! xx
