It feels strange to sitting writing this #LittleLoves update almost a week before the end of the month. With next Friday the beginning of October (how did that happen?) it means that my monthly update on the little things that have brought smiles, laughter or happiness to my life is earlier.
Thankfully taking time to indulge in my reading in the evenings when the children are in bed. Taking this opportunity to cross off several book series’ off my reading list. Finding them drawing me in and wishing to squeeze in an additional chapter or two.
As quickly as the school summer holidays came, they are once again almost over for another year. With the weather changing every day, we have had days where it has been hot and muggy, days that have been so wet it could have easily flooded. Along with days where the wind was so cold and bitter that I longed for my collection of Joules scarves.
I’m not ready for the summer to be over just yet! The countdown to back to school has begun and whilst I know the kiddies want to see their friends etc. I want to keep them to ourselves so we can enjoy more family adventures together.
Time is such a funny thing, it can feel endless at times, then before you know it that season of your life is over and the days feel as though they have slipped away from you. Today marks ten years since I decided to step into the world of blogging. Creating Boo Roo and Tigger Too, highlighting my nickname alongside my then two children.
Summer is here and now is the perfect time to making the most of the beach reads on my TBR lists – even if I’m enjoying them from my garden rather than on a beach or poolside. Having made a good start on my NetGalley ARC (Advanced Reading Copy) list last month I have been once again focusing on this list.
The month of two halves (school days and schools out for summer) is finally over. If I’m honest it has been quite an overwhelming month. Finding myself questioning whether I am doing the right things, saying the right things and working as much as I should. Feeling as though my to-do list is growing without me managing to cross much off it.
Time for this month’s #LittleLoves – Goodbye school runs, uniforms and packed lunches and a warm welcome to the summer holidays! July is always a funny month as in the first half I’m frantically attempting to tie up any loose ends before the school summer holidays.
With the schools just days away from closing their doors for summer. I have been busy planning our summer family adventures. Unfortunately, we are still no closer to an outcome for Roo’s recent knee injury so our family adventures will be somewhat limited this summer to accommodate her reduced mobility.
Having fallen down a dark mafia romance hole the last few months I had promised myself that I would make an attempt to work through my NetGalley and BookSprout ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) reading lists. On the whole, I have done really well, managing to enjoy quite a few books from an array of authors.
