#LittleLoves – Cards, Checks, Crafting And Time As A Couple

Can you believe that it’s half term already? It feels as if it was only Christmas the other week yet Valentines Day has already passed us by and we are now rolling like out of control Easter Eggs towards Spring.

I’m starting to wonder whether some kind of ‘fast forward function’ is secretly activated upon becoming a parent. Each time another kid is added to the mix the speed is magically increased rendering you unable to distinguish a week from a weekend.  Time just seems to slip away and it’s blumming frightening!

To save wasting further time I’ll get to the point and share my #LittleLoves from the past seven days but feels more like two or three days in all honesty.


With it being Half Term E’s PreSchool (or Nursery as we call it) have sent home her ‘Learning Journey’ for us parents to proudly peruse over the holidays. Seeing all the pictures, drawings and notes about our little lady and her development makes my heart both swell with pride and shatter into a thousand pieces.

Excuse the rather pixelated image (above) but it’s a photo of a photo … you know how it goes!

E loves going to Nursery but come September she starts Primary School which means that our special girly afternoons will be no longer. I cannot tell you how much I have treasured our time together, I will simply say that I’m not dealing with the whole School scenario too well.



Paul and I have actually watched quite a few films recently, one of which I really enjoyed. Following seeing previews for ‘Mr Right‘ on Facebook I knew that it was a dead cert for us to watch over Valentines week.

As I predicted it was indeed a fabulous film offering romance, action, comedy and a great storyline to boot.



Our Little Princess loves her Princesses! We’ve gone through the Frozen fad followed by Tangled, Tinkerbell, The Little Mermaid, Alice in Wonderland and now it seems E has a bit of thing for ‘Beauty And The Beast’ which is perfectly timed as Disney are set to release their latest adaptation of this tale.


E has decided that ‘Beauty And The Beast’ is not only her current favourite film but also her favourite soundtrack. This of course has meant that we have had to listen to this song over and over numerous times whilst out and about in the car and at home. Tale As Old As Time… sing along!



With it being Valentines Day this week E and I spent some time creating cards to give to the children’s Nanas. I found the idea on Pinterest and decided with it being pretty simple that we should give it a go.

Spoilt Rotten For Valentines Day



Paul very kindly treated me to a new shirt-dress last week. Teamed with a black top, a pair of leggings, and some winter boots it looks pretty nice if I do say so myself!

As you can tell by the size 8 model featured above, this is not me in the picture. My shirt-dress is currently in the ironing pile which is where it will remain for until one of us can be bothered pressing it!


And Lastly

It may sound pretty simple but I’ve really enjoyed the past week or so as Paul and I have actually managed to spend some quality time together either watching films, sat playing games or simply just chatting over a coffee. Those moments make all the difference when it comes to being a couple with kids and it’s the little things, those mini-moments that can make a massive difference to the day.


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.
