Catching Up with #LittleLoves

I missed the last two weeks Little Loves with Morgana! I can hardly believe it myself, as I really enjoy these posts, regardless of how imaginative my links are to the headings! So this week I have pulled some of the highlights from the last few weeks to share with you.


We still haven’t got our television aerial fixed, and to make matters worse, I think we’ve either broken Netflix or maybe there is a limit to how many times you can watch Thomas the Tank Engine on repeat before it shuts down? So for Mr C’s birthday last week I bought him The Hunger Games set. I know, I know, we are just about the last people on earth to watch this. I thought it was quite good, and not nearly as gory as I expected, which was what was putting me off in the first place. ย In fact, it wasn’t really gory or scary at all, if you are one of those few remaining people waiting to watch it – go ahead. You won’t regret it!

Take a Look at Me Now by Miranda Dickson. This book was an easy read, but with more depth to the characters and plot than some chic lit. Basically the main character’s life disintegrates and she takes a wee holiday to San Francisco to get back on track. Worth a read if you like easy woman’s fiction.


Nothing to note here, however I am planning to tune in to the very first digital Country radio station which is going to broadcast here in a few weeks. I hope Downtown Country makes the effort to appeal to the young country music fans in Northern Ireland. I think they will, but time will tell!


Aaron has been testing some new bibs from Funky Giraffe. You can read about that here.

I was invited out to Bushmills Inn for dinner, so I had to make an effort, and even painted my nails. Bushmills Inn is near the Giant’s Causeway, and attracts a diverse range of tourists and locals. I had a beautiful meal, and next time I go, I will have to take my camera! You would be drooling!!!

You may know I am having some work done to my house, and the builders said they would ‘make’ a start at Easter. If you have ever had dealings with builders yourself, you may understand my surprise, when I came home from a week’s holiday to find they had indeed ‘made’ a start! Hurrah! There’s not much to see yet, but I’m excited eckkk!!!

And Lastly:

The second week of the Easter holidays we spend at a house in Portstewart. Lots of different family members came and went, and it was lovely just to have a break, and it was sunny! I fully intend to write a specific post all about it, and pick out some of the 500 photos I took and share them with you! (The problem with digital cameras is I just don’t know when to stop clicking!) ย Here is one I love of Lewis and Mr C flying their kite at sunset on Portstewart Strand.

And that, is a very brief overview of some of the things I have been loving lately!

I hope you all enjoyed your Easter Holidays?
