After January dragging on forever, I can’t believe half term is upon us already. Oh how I wish that meant staying in bed until 10am, and basically just doing as I please. What I actually have to look forward to is the usual 6am starts, and my Mother in Law coming to stay. Which is not a problem, but does require a bit more attention on the old housework front! However, between shining the taps, I have found some other things to love this week. They are:
I read the debut novel, Confessions of a Mother Inferior, by fellow mummy blogger Ericka Waller. You can read my review here. I have also started Gone Girl as I have heard such good reports on it. I am only a few chapters in, and I’m hoping it is just slow to get started, as it is not grabbing me yet!
Last weekend Mr C and I watched Hannah. Saoirse Ronan stars as a young girl who has been trained to fight for survival. The opponent is the CIA. It was a weirdly mesmerising film. I’m not entirely sure if I liked it or not. Here is the trailer if you fancy a peek:
Still a lot of reminiscing going on over on Cool FM this week as they celebrate 25 years on air. My favourite oldie of the week has got to be – I’ve got the key, I’ve got the secret, I’ve got the key to a – better way… la la la. Did you sing along? Please don’t tell me you haven’t heard of it, you will make me feel very old indeed! (Okkkayyy.. now I have gone to search for a link for this song and it says 1993 – which makes this song 22 years old! It would appear I may actually already be old!)
Lots of tea! I go through phases of wanting herbal tea, and this week I tried a new fruit one from Asda. It’s lovely, and I have nearly finished the box!
Lewis made me a brooch at one of his little clubs. So very sweet, of course I had to wear it immediately while doing my household chores! It hasn’t had a public outing yet, but I’m thinking of perhaps attaching it to a shopping bag or similar. I guess I now know how my mum felt when I used to present her with salt dough ornaments! (Actually I think this is better!) What can you do???
I saw some snowdrops – not in my garden sadly, but still, it is a sign of Spring, and it is very much welcome!
What are your #LittleLoves this week?
