The holidays have finally arrived, though I’ve spent the past month referring to them as ‘The Easter Break’ this isn’t the case at all as Easter falls far later this year. It doesn’t feel as though we’ve reached the end of March, although my bank balance may wish to differ.
Time seems to fly by when you’re busy with children, work and everything else. I barely even know what day of the week it is never mind what the date happens to be! So without further waffle or wittering, here are some of my #LittleLoves throughout March:
I have been meaning to pick and to peruse a book for myself this month. The sad fact is that I simply haven’t had the time nor the inclination to do so, I have however spent vast amounts of time scrawling through hundreds of holidays in order to find something suitable for the summer. I therefore now know all about Crete and Hersonissos, the area in which we will be staying.
I’m a bit of a ‘box set bird’ as I haven’t the patience to wait a week between each episode of a particular program, thus I prefer to binge watch boxsets on Netflix. This month I came across Workin’ Moms, a Canadian sit-com based upon following the day-to-day life of a group of Mothers, as they return to work following maternity leave.
Not only is this program hilarious from a parents point of view, it’s also rather endearing as I relate to many of their feelings on so many different levels as I myself have spent time as a ‘stay at home Mum’ a part-time working Mum and now a full-time working Mum. If you haven’t seen Workin’ Moms, its definitely worth a watch especially if you happen to be a parent whether you work or not…
As part of our daily routine, my husband and I tend to play music before bedtime to encourage the kids to wind down and to get settled for sleep. This past month we’ve been listening to ‘The XX’, an English indie pop band who feel very much like a cross between London Grammar and Deacon Blue. I’m rather taken by the song ‘On Hold’ which I’ve played almost on repeat for the past four weeks.
I really need to cut down on the sweet, sugary snacks but I cannot seem to help myself at present. I’ve made all kinds of cakes and bakes throughout the month but my present personal favourite has to be raspberry jam tarts which I’ve made and eaten far too many of this month.
Having finally signed my little mermaid up for swimming lessons, we now travel to a rather swanky swimming pool each week, where not only does my little lady get to take a dip, but I too have been squeezing into my swimming costume to spend time relaxing in the jacuzzi, sauna and steam room.
As a family, we’ve had so much to celebrate this month; the children were both given the most wonderful reports at their parents evening and I couldn’t be a prouder parent. After what feels like forever, our family has finally completed months of hard work and have successfully handed over their business to new owners today. Whilst I tend not to talk about family related issues online, I cannot express how proud I am of everyone that was involved and has brought what was a brilliant business back to life.
