Sharing life’s #LittleLoves, one month at a time
Oh, what a month, I feel as though I have been here, there and everywhere, yet not managing to complete anything or make an impact on anything. Many plans going out of the window this month due to the weather and Roo’s injury at school. Although I did finally get to see the beautiful beach huts at Wells Next The Sea up close today – so that makes up for all the other meh moments the month has thrown at me.
This month’s #LittleLoves…
Each month I share my #littleloves, a chance to reflect on the things that I have read, watched, heard and made. As well as highlighting what I’ve worn and any other highlights in my life. It’s not about the big things, it’s about all those small little loves that make up everyday life.
Last month I set myself the goal to focus on the books on my ARC (Advance Reader Copy) lists via NetGalley and BookSprout. Having fallen down a dark mafia romance hole in recent months it was time for me to embrace a range of romance tropes, discover new-to-me authors as well as gain a sense of accomplishment as I submitted each review via the platforms.
On the whole, I managed to cross off a number of books in my lists. I did manage to sneak in a few mafia romances too, I couldn’t manage to go cold turkey all month without my bad boy fix.
As lockdown started last year, What The Dad Said introduced me to Farming Simulator which I have been playing on the Xbox One. Whilst I have been enjoying cultivating fields, harvesting and deciding when is best to sell my crops. Jeremy Clarkson has been living and breathing farming life as he took over control of the farm he owns. Clarkson’s Farm on Amazon Prime Video has provided me with some belly laughs this month I hope they decide to do a second series.
I had the opportunity to attend Piglet’s school trip to Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse this month. Something I have always attempted to make myself available for with each of the children. So lovely to see them interact with their classmates and teachers. Although it poured down with rain, we had a great time, Sharing each other’s packed lunches and chatting together on the coach journey.
Not one from me, but for Roo – who is now wearing a new brace for the foreseeable future. After falling during a performing arts lesson at school, we are awaiting the results of an MRI to see what damage she has done. There is a possibility of surgery in her future or fingers crossed just physio. Her clothing options are somewhat limited due to the brace but she’s making it work.
Following on from the rearranging of furniture last month I have been making lists of what needs to be completed in each room. Tigger’s bedroom needs a small soft furnishing update in order to take it from a young boy’s to a tween’s bedroom. Adding new bedding and curtains, hopefully transforming his space into a gamer’s den fit for a growing boy.
Today, after weeks/months of planning I finally was able to catch up with Lynsey from Me, Him, The Dog and A Baby. The last time we saw each other in person was two weeks before the first national lockdown, so a catch up was long overdue. Thankfully the weather cleared up by the time we reached Wells Next The Sea and we were able to enjoy a walk along the beach, taking photos of beach huts and chatting away. Plus we managed to squeeze in a visit to three different Joules stores – with Piglet treated to a new funnel neck jumper.
