#LittleLoves – January 2021

Welcome to my first #LittleLoves post for 2021. Like most people, I was hoping that 2021 would prove to be more positive and be far brighter than 2020 but sadly that doesn’t seem to be the case. Times are tough at present and whilst I don’t see it getting any easier for quite some time, I’m trying my best to stay upbeat and to look for the positives. So without further ado, here are a few of my #LittleLoves from the past month.

Given that I’ve barely got time to scratch my head at present, I’m not entirely sure how I managed to find the time to read not just one but two books this month – they were obviously a good read as I somehow squeezed them into my overflowing and rather overwhelming schedule.

It’s the first time that I’ve come across the comedian and author Spencer Brown, and I’m really glad that his books popped into my suggested reads (ta Amazon!) as I’ve really enjoyed reading both ‘The Rebuilding of Tom Cooper‘ and Spencer’s latest book – ‘The Lockdown Diary of Tom Cooper’.

Step aside Bridget Jones, Tom Cooper had me in hysterics! I was splitting my sides with laughter whilst reading these books and I literally couldn’t put these books (or should I say my kindle app) down – they were that good!

As usual, my all-time favourite Aussie-soap took a break over Christmas and it was well missed. I was therefore rather pleased this month as I was finally able to get ‘back to the bay‘ for my thirty-minute escape from reality.  I do rather like my daily dose of Home & Away, it’s a welcome break during what is rather a dreary, dismal, and dark month.

Heard

Though I first heard London Grammar’s cover of ‘Blinding Lights’ back in late November, it seemed to get drowned out by endless Christmas music which was being played throughout the festive period. This month we’ve mostly been listening to chill-out tunes to help to keep us all cool, calm, and collected (or as cool and calm as you can be during the height of a pandemic!). London Grammar’s ‘cover of ‘Blinding Lights’ has been played a fair few times along with the likes of Yebba, Florence, and my trusty Tori…

Made

#LittleLoves - January 2021

As we’ve demolished most of the Christmas treats, I decided to don my apron last week and we’ve since made numerous nibbles including cinnamon-infused gingerbread men, chocolate flapjack, and of course, the obligatory sticky toffee pudding.

Wore

#LittleLoves - January 2021

Though I never intend to buy matching outfits for my daughter and I, we are both of similar colouring and tend to suit the same shades and tones when it comes to fashion. As a result of my past purchases, this month we spent a day unintentionally wearing matching yellow jumpers which rather amused us both.

And Lastly

#LittleLoves - January 2021

Though it’s of no surprise we’ve spent the past month, like most of the UK, homeschooling the kids due to the national lockdown. I’m so incredibly proud of how hard the kids are working and coping with the current situation, they truly are amazing!

Whilst I’m far happier staying safe at home, I must admit that it’s beginning to feel a whole lot like Groundhog Day! I miss my family, I miss my friends, I miss the simple things like going shopping for items other than groceries, having days out, eating meals out in restaurants, having a swift half at the pub, socialising without a sodding mask, but most of all I miss the feeling of safety and security outside of my own home. Normality left us a long time ago and I’m not really sure whether that ship will ever sail back to this shore … we can only hope, right?


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.
