So here we are on the last Friday of March and what a gloriously sunny Friday it is! Though the Met Office assure me that the wonderful weather, like most things in life, is short-lived thus I’m making the most of the blue skies whilst I can! The washing is airing on the line and I’ve got the patio doors open to enjoy the fresh air before the rain inevitably returns.
So without any further waffle, here are a few of my #LittleLoves from what has been an incredibly busy but brilliant month.
Though I continuously promise myself that I’ll pick up a book and read it from cover to cover, I’m yet to actually achieve this. I do however spend way too much time flicking and scrolling through various news feeds, short Kindle stories, and such-like so I guess that will have to count as my reading for March.
Having spent the past ten months counting down, the day finally arrived for Paul and I to travel to Manchester to go and watch Tori Amos play live at the Apollo. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen Tori play live, all I can tell you is that it’ll never be enough. Tori, as always, was incredible and her setlist was outstanding. I was super lucky as I also managed to bag a signed poster from the lady herself, which as you can imagine for a superfan like myself was rather emotionally overwhelming.
Other than Tori Amos, which I’ve spent the majority of this month playing and listening to, I’ve found myself veering towards Adeles latest track ‘Oh My God’ and Alice Merton’s ‘No Roots’ both of which are now added to my chick-hits playlist.
Other than the odd batch of baking and various worksheets for my classes I haven’t made an awful lot this month. Though the month is yet to officially come to a close and I do have plans to make a few Mother’s Day cards with the kids this weekend, whether that materialises is yet to be seen.
The weather made a miraculous u-turn earlier this month and whilst I had been comfortable throughout the winter wearing jeans and cosey jumpers, it’s a little too warm for those extra layers now. I’ve since ditched the jumpers in exchange for lighter tops alongside open cardigans to ensure that I have something warm to wrap up in should it suddenly cloud over.
Though the weather is much brighter, the fields are still pretty boggy whilst out walking thus the wellies have seen a fair bit of action this past month, though I can’t say I am a welly-bob fan.
My beautiful Mum turned sixty-six earlier this month and to celebrate I took both my Mum and my Mother-in-law to the local tea rooms for afternoon tea. I’d obviously underestimated afternoon tea as I’d expected it to consist of coffee, tea, a few slices of cake and maybe the odd sandwich or two. I certainly wasn’t expecting a table covered in Yorkshire puddings filled with beef, hot sausage rolls, sandwiches, buns, baguettes, cakes, biscuits, tortes, scones, and pots filled with delicious puddings.
Though we did our best to eat and enjoy as much as possible, we found ourselves having to pack up take away boxes and we came back completely and utterly stuffed, I felt so full that I could barely move for the rest of the day but it was a great day and my Mum celebrated in style which is what it was all about.
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.
