Bangor, A Birthday and Bread Fresh of the Griddle! #LittleLoves

Hello hello! It’s Friday again! It’s been a good week, we even had some sunshine! So without further ado here are this week’s #LittleLoves


This week I want to tell you about one of my favourite blogs. Every ambitious blogger dreams of being in the same league as the two American sisters who blog at A Beautiful Mess. These girls are professional with a capital P and they have made quite the business for themselves. If you like creativity and gorgeous photos, you need to be following this blog.


I went along to the Northern Ireland Golf Open, though I didn’t actually watch any of the golf! I did however watch some artisan bakers griddle some fresh tasty delights at the food fair in Galgorm Castle grounds. I bought a cheese and chive potato bread and it was delicious! I might have to try to re-create it someday soon!

To some very dodgy singing from my family as we wished Aaron a Happy 2nd Birthday! I can hardly believe he is two! We have been so busy since he came along, there are days I feel like I haven’t had a chance to get to know him yet! Lewis and I spent so much time together when he was young, yet with Aaron my time with him always feels rushed. Perhaps a second child does feel like that? All I know is it feels like just a blink of an eye since he was a tiny baby, and now he has changed into a thriving toddler before my eyes!

I have nothing to report but I love these pyjamas I picked up for Aaron in the Mothercare sale! Roaaar!

I made Aaron a cake for his Birthbday. ¬†Well, made might be a little bit of a stretch, perhaps decorated is a better description. He is in a phase of loving trains, and I was ‘Pinspired’ to make a train and carriages. I used chocolate logs, and mini battenbergs. The wheels are giant m&m’s and then carriages are decorated with coloured sweeties.

And Lastly:

We had some sunshine this week! Real actual sunshine. We enjoyed a day out to Bangor. which was great fun for the kids!

And although the outside of my house is still a bit of a building site, while Aaron napped Lewis and I enjoyed catching some rays! Bliss!



I hope you enjoyed catching up with my #LittleLoves, and I hope you had some of your own! I’d love to hear about them!
