So here we are at the end of yet another month. February may well be a short month but it’s sure flown by! Here are a few of my #LittleLoves from the past twenty-however-many days.
Having completed Adam Silvera’s Death-Cast series, I decided to explore some of his previous books and ended up ordering ‘History Is All You Left Me’. Though it took me a week or two to make progress with this book, I’ve finally got myself into the story and, I’m now a couple of chapters into reading History Is All You Left Me.
After a rather long and impatient wait, our household was delighted to welcome back Jeremy Clarkson and his crew for a second series of the much anticipated Clarksons Farm. Without giving away too many spoilers, I’ve got to say it was a series to be watched as Jezza “did a thing” and brought to light the difficulties faced by farmers prior to and since Brexit. He also highlighted the petty practices and paperwork that councils seem to be pushing onto the British public whilst sucking us into our screens as he served up an appetising array of smiles, tears, and laughter throughout an amazing eight episodes.
Despite the tongue-in-cheek explicit language and intended innuendo, Clarksons Farm remains a firm family favourite in this household and we will no doubt watch this second season for a second time as it really was that good!
Alongside watching Call The Midwife and Prime’s ‘Modern Love‘, Paul and I also started watching the current trending Netflix thriller ‘You‘. We whizzed through the first season and just started watching the second season last night, though I must admit I watched from behind a cushion at points as whilst the story is compelling, there are some grotesque scenes that had us both wincing.
This month has been all about Miley Cyrus in terms of music as our gorgeous little girl has had us all singing along to ‘I can buy myself flowers’ (Flowers by Miley Cyrus) ever since Valentine’s Day when thankfully I didn’t have to buy myself flowers as I was spoilt with a dozen roses but still, the song remains on our Alexa’s top-played list.
It’s been all about the DIY this month in our house as E has been treated to some new storage systems for her bedroom prior to a bedroom upgrade. Whilst our little lady was once all for everything pink, fluffy, glittery, princess-style, or bunny-themed, she has matured and with it, she’s become ‘potty about Potter‘ and whacky about ‘Wednesday’ (Wednesday Addams). E’s beloved Barbie-pink bedroom is currently being repainted in a rich red and glorious gold to match the Harry Potter accessories (curtains, bedding, rugs, and materials) which are currently on order and will be fitted within the next few weeks.
Alongside baking some rather tasty cheese straws which lasted less than twenty-four hours before being guzzled, E has been busy experimenting with creating her own recipes for slime. She’s made two batches of slime during the past month and whilst I’m all for her being arty and creative, I’m not quite as keen when it comes to making a mess with glue and glitter but if it makes her happy then why not?!
Though Spring is on the way it’s still flipping freezing outside thus I’m still wrapped up warm in jeans, jumpers, cardigans, and such-like. I have however treated myself to a brand new fluffy jacket which I’m hoping will be one of those ‘goes with anything’ kind of jackets for autumn and winter time.
After spending the majority of the Christmas holidays suffering from strep and Christmas colds, we finally reached the February half-term only to be graced with yet another round of coughs, colds, and seasonal ailments. Thankfully we’ve gotten over the worst of the snot and sniffling and we managed to get ourselves out to Preston for a day where we enjoyed completing the Ninja Warrior- style assault course at Jump Maniax followed by an afternoon playing mini golf and bowling at the Flower Bowl. Fun was had by all as we had an awesome day out though we’re now a day behind with the DIY thus we are working with gusto prior to our ‘return to routine’.
Thanks again for reading my blog and I hope that you enjoyed this month’s #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.
