#LittleLoves – Everything Seems To Be Changing

It’s been a funny old week really, everything around me seems to be changing and nothing feels ‘normal’ as such. Give it time and I am sure that I will adjust, until then I will ride the waves as best as I can.

There’s so much in life to love and to be thankful for, recent events have certainly taught me that. With that in mind here are my #LittleLoves for this week.


With J having returned to school this week, the reading books have made a come back. J and I have been reacquainted with the good old ‘Biff, Chip and Kipper‘ and I have been reminded just how much I love listening to my little man read.

I’m fairly certain that J finds reading to be more of a chore than a pleasure but I can see that he tries his best. They say practice makes perfect and let me tell you, J has come on leaps and bounds in his reading ability this year.



As many of you are probably already aware, Cold Feet returned to our screens this week. I love a bit of James Nesbitt and so setup series link recording to ensure that I didn’t miss a moment!

I used to love watching Cold Feet back in the day and wasn’t entirely sure whether this new series could live up to its predecessors. After watching only one episode I can fully assure you that Cold Feet is as good as ever!



Paul and I lost a dear family friend, a teacher, a master and in our eyes a legend this week. We said our Goodbyes to Stuart this morning at a rather sad but beautiful service and upon leaving one particular song was played.

I have always associated ‘Eye Of The Tiger’ with ‘Rocky’ but from now on will always remember Stuart whenever I hear this track. He will be sorely missed but will forever remain in our hearts.


In all honesty this week has been pretty much all about Stuart, he was a massive part of our lives and to commemorate his passing I made and decorated a cake which featured his red belt for the design.

I don’t feel that it’s right to share any pictures of said cake on my blog but as it is literally the only thing that I have physically made this week I guess it deserves a mention.


The weather is a bit here nor there really, some days its roasting hot and others it’s brass monkeys. My sandals were put away for next year and two days later were back out by the front door. My clothes have followed suit, I’ve spent most days wearing short-sleeved tops with a cardigan to be sure that I am neither hot nor cold.

And Lastly

It seems like forever and day that I have wanted a ‘Welsh Dresser’, after years of trying to figure out how the hell we’d ever fit anything of the kind into such a small corner, we finally found the perfect dresser at the perfect price.

I am totally in love with my new unit, it fits everything in perfectly and looks the biz! It’s amazing how much one piece of furniture can change an entire room.

Thanks again for reading my blog and I hope that you enjoyed this weeks #LittleLoves. If you fancy sharing your #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.

    Sorry that you lost a dear friend and sending hugs to you all. I think the first week back is always a funny old week. Yearning for the summer still, but trying to fit back into the routine of life. Love your dresser and it is the perfect place for it. Have a great week #littleloves x

    Such a difficult time for you, I’m glad you’ve still been able to highlight the positives. I almost chose Cold Feet myself – such a blast from the past! I love the dresser too – you’re right, it’s the perfect fit and looks fantastic! #LittleLoves

    So very sorry for your loss Rachel, what an awful time for you all. I have so much respect for you that you’re still looking for the good and the positives in spite of the sadness. I think that kind of thing really helps and it was one of the reasons I started Little Loves in the first place.
    I love your Welsh dresser and what a perfect fit! I have one two and really enjoy filling it with special things.
    Hope you’re ok xx
