Cinderella, Love Songs and Friends #LittleLoves

March 10, 2017

I’m a bit all over the place this week. I feel as though I have been here, there and everywhere. It’s been a week for sorting out bits and pieces which is good in that a few lingering jobs on the to-do list are finally crossed off… but I’m shattered.


School reports – My children’s school opt not to hold parents evening in the spring terms so send home reports. Tigger has settled into Year One well and has realised that he only has a set amount of time to complete a task so he needs to knuckle down and get on with it. Roo, on the whole, is doing well, she is a popular member of her class and is very helpful towards the teaching staff. However, she is meeting her targets but cruising through the year rather than trying to push herself further. So we have spoken about how she can apply herself more during school and on her homework – time will tell whether she listens to us or not.


Cinderella on Netflix – I’d intended to watch this with Roo and Tigger last Friday after school, however, they decided that they had better things to do. So Piglet and I snuggled up on the sofa to enjoy the magic of Cinderella – I do love Disney films.

I’m a bit of a sucker for love (as you may have guessed), so this week I was so very pleased to find a Timeless Love Songs playlist on Spotify. I’ve been enjoying listening to the classic love songs, which I just can’t help but sing along to.


After finally clearing out our chest freezer, we decided it was time to refill it so a trip back to our favourite local butchers. Although we might have moved 45 minutes away we always make the trip back to stock up. We managed to get quite a lot of different meats and I spent the afternoon splitting t up into portions and labelling food containers. So nice to be able to pull out a container or two as needed rather than having food going to waste.


Nothing exciting this week. As I have been busy it has been my standard mum uniform of jeans and stripy tops – pretty boring but practical.


Despite all my toing and froing this week I did manage to catch up with some good friends. A natter, some laughter and a can of diet coke can soon make the world a better place.

    I know what you mean about catching up with friends, sometimes you’re not sure you can spare the time but then feel so good when you do. I’m still to see Cinderella, but am really looking forward to seeing Beauty and the Beast, a girlie treat for me and Little Miss. I like the look of the Spotify list, I may have a little browse later.

    I loved Cinderella, can’t wait to see Beauty and the Beast now, it looks great! I could definitely do with a good catch up with friends right now. Hope you have a good week!

    You’re such a wonderful influence- I now have Spotify and I’m loving it. Glad you managed some time with friends- I always find it like therapy. Glad to hear Roo and Tigger are settling in well, given the change they’ve been through, those school reports say so much about the support they receive at home and in school.

    Got to love a bit of Disney and it’s always great to catch up with friends. #LittleLoves

    I wanted to watch Cinderella at the cinema but never got round to it. I might have to squeeze in a Netflix session this week. The one movie I really can’t wait to see is ‘The Beauty and the Beast’, though. It’s my all-time favourite #littleloves x

    Oh I love Cinderella. We’ve watched it a few times now and I think I love it more each time. x
