#LittleLoves – Lego, London Grammar & Dead Men Tell No Tales

Can you Adam and Eve it? It’s only bleeding Friday already, where the hell did half term go to? We’ve been that blumming busy that it feels as I’ve barely blinked and a whole week has gone by! Here are a few of my #LittleLoves from the past seven days or so.


Having received a frighteningly formal letter last week regarding a certain speeding ticket I’ve since heard back from the boys in blue and as luck would have it I have been offered a speeding awareness course (either that or a £100 fine and 3 points on my license which put the two together is a no brainer).

I wouldn’t usually be so happy to read such letters but I feel as if a weight has been lifted from my shoulders, I am no longer living in limbo waiting to hear back , I now know the score and am more than happy to rectify the situation by attending said course, it’s a fair cop!


Paul and I took our little man to see the latest Pirates of the Caribbean film at the local flicks. It was an absoloutly fantastic film, Johny Deppe once again played his part well. I don’t care whether he’s well into his fifties he’s still serious eye candy, that and hilarious as I found myself literally crying with laughter during a few of the scenes.



I am a total festival freak and despite being unable to attend such events due to having two small things that take up a lot of my time I still greatly enjoy sitting comfortably on my sofa watching such events, all whilst in the knowledge that I am clean, well fed, will sleep happily in a comfortable bed, am within close proximity of functioning toilets, hot showers and have a fridge full of food and drink within reach.

This may sound like a contradiction but I’ve never been a happy camper and as they say “with age comes wisdom”. I’m far happier to sit in the comfort of my living room with a fantastic view of the stage than being squished into a sweaty audience unable to see, breath or hear much at all.


Radio One’s big weekend has been plastered all over the BBC this week, having watched the majority of the footage, the highlight of the weekend from my point of view was London Grammars performance featuring a couple of songs from their upcoming album which I look forward to purchasing in the near future.



Earlier this week my parents returned home from almost a month travelling around Africa. Other than the odd sickness bug they apparently had an amazing time and whilst on their travels they picked up some rather swanky Lego sets for the kids which they both adore equally.

J was given the Silent Mary Pirates of the Caribbean set which is taking quite some time to complete due to the enormity of the build required. E was thrilled to bits when she was given a giant Lego Frozen Castle which having being told by a local ‘Lego Master’ would be a ‘twenty minute build’ twenty minutes my ass! took me almost three days to complete but certainly looks the biz!


I’m not sure how exactly I forgot that I had a perfectly new pair of Skecher trainers hidden in my wardrobe for the past twelve months or so but having found them during a clear out I’ve since been wearing my Sketcher Shape Ups (paired with jeans) giving me some extra height and an added work out whilst walking.

And Lastly

As it’s been half term Paul and I made plans to carry out numerous tasks most of which we have completed. Paul finally finished laying our new grass, fitting the decking and completed our garden makeover the results of which are stunning!
