I am seriously considering changing the name of these posts to ‘How the weather has affected my week!’ This one is not boring old rain and wind though. It’s snow! Proper proper snow! Eckkk..
Fasten your seatbelts, it’s time for this weeks Little Loves! (Makes it sound like it’s going to be exciting doesn’t it? – It is exciting! It features snow!):
It’s been a Jodi Picoult week. I was thrilled to discover a couple of her books I haven’t read before. This week I finished the book Leaving Time. One of the things I most enjoy about her style is; apart from a story, I often learn all sorts of information on a subject I wouldn’t normally pay much attention to. In this case it was elephants. They put the rest of us Mummy’s to shame by the way! So, it was a really interesting read, with loads of twists and turns in the story, which was great and kept me guessing. However… I wasn’t convinced on the ending. Questions were left unanswered, the conclusion was (in my opinion) improbable. I just wasn’t overly keen, but up until that point it was another great read by Jodi Picoult. Has anyone else read this? What did you think?
I don’t think I’ve watched any television at all this week. Though last weekend Mr C and I watched a film starring Jennifer Aniston called ‘We’re the Millers’. A little over the top in some places, but in general it was quite amusing. The cover kind of speaks for itself!
My radio waves are still pumping out Uptown Funk. Will that song ever get old?
Wellies on the school run and snow suits for the boys, and if you can’t find gloves for your kids – socks do just as good a job of keeping their wee mitts warm!
I got so excited when I saw all the snow. It was perfect powder soft snow, and I just had to go out and have a play. I made some snowballs…
..but I didn’t have anyone to throw them at, so I turned them into a little snowman!
And when Lewis finished school, we made a proper snowman. For the first time ever in his 4 whole years! Aaron did not participate. I’m not sure if it was the wellie boots or the snow he was opposed to, but Aaron only lasted outdoors for about 30 seconds, bless him! Lewis lasted until the blizzard came on just as the snowman got his finishing touches!
I’ve been enjoying a little bit of reminiscing this week. My blog is 1 year old! I’m actually quite proud of myself. Mr C would tell you I do like a bit of a whim in life. I have big ideas, but usually the novelty wears off pretty quickly when I start a new venture. But I’ve stuck at this blogging lark. I think because it is actually much harder than it looks. It’s a challenge, and an education of sorts. I like it, and I’m going to stick around for a bit longer I think!
What are your Little Loves this week?
