I made a promise to myself to partake in some new linkies this year and whilst #LittleLoves isn’t entirely a new linky, it has certainly changed since I last wrote a post for this series. Firstly, the linky was originally scheduled each week, whereas now it is published on a monthly basis (upon the final Friday of each month). Secondly, the linky is now based on an entirely new blog as it has been handed from Morgana over to ‘Mummy Hearts You‘.
It feels like forever since I’ve sat and read a really good book, I’ve finally had my Kindle on charge and have since downloaded and started reading Fearne Cotton’s ‘Happy’. Whilst this is a far stretch away from my usual ‘chick-lit’ choice, I’ve rather enjoyed reading through Fearne’s tips and tricks upon how to achieve happiness through a positive mind set.
With school starting for the spring term, we have now returned to our regular routine, this includes winding down the weekend with a movie. This week we enjoyed snuggling on the sofa whilst watching Christopher Robin, a heart-warming movie which moved both myself and our young man to tears at one point.
I finally bit the bullet and upgraded our Amazon Music subscription from Unlimited to the Unlimited Family Plan. As a result, we are each now able to listen to our own Music on multiple devices. J has been busy putting together his own playlists, meanwhile I have spent time listening to the Pop Princess – Rita Ora.
This month has been all about the boots. I spent weeks scouring the internet for the perfect pair of boots, upon arrival I was reminded never to judge a book by its cover, or in my case ‘a boot by its picture’. Said boots were sent back to the manufacturer and I then ordered a further two pairs of boots from an alternative supplier, both of which I have well and truly worn in over the past few weeks.
I am far from a DIY diva, even flat packs have been known to out-wit me in the past. However, earlier this month following an Ikea blitz, Paul and I put together a range of furniture, some of which I managed to make myself! Until now I’ve never been allowed to tamper with the tools, especially those which require power, I cannot express how much fun I had!
January seems to have dragged on somewhat, I’m not sure whether it’s the dark nights, the cold weather or a combination of the two. Christmas may have come and gone, but I have continued to keep the sparkle alive by placing lanterns filled with LED lights around the house. I love how these look, they are so cheap to put together and I couldn’t care less whether it’s Christmas or not, the twinkly lights are here to stay!
