Harry Potter, Board Angels and London #LittleLoves

June 30, 2017

With both Piglet and Tigger being a little under the weather this week I am sat dreaming about the hours of sleep I have lost this week. Not exactly productive and good for the mindset but sleep is oh so important to me. Somehow I managed to survive a day at Legoland on Sunday on just 3 hours sleep. The joys of being a parent I guess, but let’s move on to more positive notes… This week’s #LittleLoves

Roo and Tigger had their parent’s evenings this week. With their school books available for me to browse through before heading in to talk about their progress with their class teachers. It’s interesting to see how they are getting on and how much improvement they have made from the beginning of the year. I think they will be both sad to say goodbye to their current teachers.


I couldn’t let the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter go unnoticed this week and thankfully Tigger agreed with me. So we have been watching the movies from start to finish again this week, we’ve not managed them all. I do love the Harry Potter films.

I’ve been listening to my VQ Retro Mini DAB radio much more this week. Whilst pottering around the house completing chores and sorting bits and pieces out. I tend to listen to the same couple of radio stations so I need to expand my range and see what other stations are playing.


I don’t think I’ve made anything this week. With my lack of sleep, it has been about surviving. I have started to sort out things for a car boot sale as we desperately need to have a clear out of old clothes and toys etc.


I have no idea what to wear at the moment. The weekend was glorious with t-shirts and called for. With Roo wearing her current favourite Board Angels dragonfly t-shirt and navy shorts. Whilst Tuesday and Wednesday were absolutely miserable here, the school runs were fun on those days (not!).

I managed to squeeze in a girlie day in London with Roo this week. Along with Mandi and her daughter from Hexmum Plus One we enjoyed lunch at Planet Hollywood and a trip to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not.

    Sounds like a good day out in London with the girls – plenty of fun was had I’m sure! I wanted to do something to mark the 20th anniversary for Harry Potter, however I only recently finished a reread of the books and a rewatch of the films; not exactly well planned on my part as they could have coincided with the anniversary. I hope you’re enjoying the films once more! I hope you get some extra sleep soon!

    Sleep deprivation is the worst part of being a parent for sure, hope you managed to catch up. I keep meaning to re-watch the potter movies I’m sure there’s one I’ve not seen. Your day out in London sounds fab. #LittleLoves

    Oh we love HP too! My eldest is working her way through the books with her dad and they are currently on the Half Blood Prince. I selfishly can’t wait for them to finish them all as we’ve said we’ll take her on the Harry Potter WB studio tour when she’s done.
    Have a great week x

    I love Harry Potter too, we really must watch them again, I think my children have only seen the first two. A girly day in London sounds lovely too!
