Lewis Rules This Week’s #LittleLoves!

Hello hello! Before starting this post I reflected back over the last week, and it has been crazy! So many good things have made me smile this week. And some not so good things have occurred also… but I’m not going to dwell on them! Instead I am as usual linking up with Morgana at But Why Mummy Why to share my #LittleLoves. Here goes:

Read:

For the first time in a very long time, I have not finished reading a whole book! So, instead I am recommending to you a blog post. It is very funny, and details how one Mum ended up with a life size giraffe. It’s funny, because I knew when I read it that it could be me some day! Head on over to The Clothes Line to find out more!

Listened:

I am blessed with a child who jumps out of bed in the morning and feels fantastic! You know that feeling us adults wish we could experience, just once! Lewis has that every morning! It has recently reached new levels. He now jumps out off bed. Gets dressed in whichever fancy dress outfit appeals, and then proceeds to wake us up while being Superman or a Fireman or Spiderman, etc etc… If I’m really lucky he will be singing one of the songs he is currently practising for his school concert. His favourites being, Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag, and It’s a Long Way to Tipperary. It is kinda cute, but there is no way I am in any shape to be taking photo’s before I’ve even got out of bed! This is pretty much what it looks like though!

Watched:

I watched the film Bridesmaids last weekend. It was another film I was mesmerised by, mostly because it was so horrendous. In places I actually had to hide behind my hands! I’m not sure if that also means it was good?  I also discovered a programme on BBC2 (Thursdays at 7pm I think) called Britain’s Got the Builders In. It is a short series about the relationship between builders and their clients, but it looks interesting. I think it’s basically them slagging each other off a lot!

Wore:

I have nothing to report. Lewis got some new clogs though. He had a pair last year, and they were brilliant for the beach and just running about in for the summer. Plus these were in his favourite colours so how could I not buy them!

Made:

It’s been a quiet week creatively. Most of it has been spent ‘making’ our house smaller, in preparation for the builders starting the extension. However Mr C quite likes that he and I are camping out in the living room. He says it feels like we are staying in a boutique hotel. Obviously we need to start getting out more! I did make some mini banoffees for a family lunch though. With help from my two boys of course!

I hope that you have had lots of things make you smile this past week!

    Your mini banoffees look yummy, and since starting my new healthy lifestyle this morning all I can think about is eating chocolate and cake!
    I just popped over and read the giraffe story, it did make me giggle, easily done! xx

      I haven’t put a recipe up, but they are so simple! Just buy a tin of condensed caramel (in the aisle beside condensed milk) and there is usually a recipe on the tin!

    Aah, extension – how exciting! It will be so worth all the upheaval when it’s done. And please make me some banoffee pies?? They look amazing, and are Mr M’s favourite dessert of all time. I’m really hungry now! 🙂 Have a great weekend Mel xx

    Ooh – I know absolutely every other comment has started off with the same thing but – wow! Banoffees – drool! Amazing 🙂 I really want to see Bridesmaids – I take it it was on TV and I’ve missed it? Where is your extension going to be? Your kitchen looks massive already! I love that Lewis is so enthusiastic to get up and at ’em in the mornings – he looks like a little ray of sunshine. Have a fab weekend Mel Xx #littleloves

      The garage is being turned into a bedroom and a small utility room is being added, so I’m pretty excited for it to be done! Bridesmaids was on tv.. I can’t remember what channel, but maybe you could find it on catch up?

    Oh those mini banoffees look GORGEOUS! Good luck with the building work – we have just come out the other side of it and while it was tough at the time, it’s been so worth it. Have a great weekend! X
