I missed #LittleLoves last week! Honestly, half term was such a blur, I genuinely can hardly remember what I got up to! However, here are the best bits of the last two weeks – all the things I loved the most!
I finished Gone Girl. It definitely challenged my expectations of where I thought the storyline was going. I do favour chicklit for it’s easy going nature, but I tend to skim read. I had to pay attention to keep up with this book, but it was worth it! The ending didn’t quite sit well with my sense of moral justice, but I guess the thing to remember is it is only fiction!
I heard this song called Anaconda by Nicki Minaj. I’m not saying that I like it, but it did make me laugh, more out of ludicrosity. If I had a daughter I wouldn’t let her listen to this until she was at least married! All I can say is, ‘Oh my gosh!’
So this is perhaps where I realise what I have been doing with my time! Actually, it may sound like a lot of films, but I don’t really watch any other television, so it’s not too bad for two weeks! I am going to have to do a list though!
Paddington: Our first ever family trip to the cinema! The film was really good, and I was so proud of my boys. Lewis was mesmerised and Aaron lasted right up until 5 minutes before it ended! Pretty impressive for an 18 month old!
Gone Girl: The book was so good I bought the dvd for Mr C and I to watch. I think it freaked him out a little that I liked it! He may have slept with one eye open that night!
Silver Linings Playbook: I had never heard of this film before watching it on t.v. It was a really interesting portrayal of two people with mental health issues and how they helped each other to manage through their respective heartbreaks. Worth a watch if you haven’t seen it.
I made my own little version of washi tape. I was really pleased with how it turned out. You can read the tutorial here.
Some new foundation, the same one I was wearing previously, however I discovered that Boots can colour match lipstick to your colour matched foundation, (which I recommend). I didn’t buy any, on this occasion, but I think I might!
I got a new Denby kettle, which I love, although I use it as a teapot. I might just do a post on how we make tea in this part of the world, just so I can take some more pictures of it! Watch this space…
