Passports, The Wedding Date and iCandy Orange #LittleLoves

February 4, 2017


Just to prove how chaotic my week has been I’m a day late in sharing my #LittleLoves with you. I’ve spent the entire week chasing my tail. From not knowing what day of the week it is. To trying to cram as much into each day as possible.


My life seems to revolve around paperwork at the moment. It’s my own fault for planning a christening and a trip to Disneyland Paris within the same month. The closest I have gotten to reading this week has been all the forms necessary to get our passports organised for our first family trip aboard. A mixed bag of trying to find the correct ID, countersigning and photos before driving to our local Passport office in Peterborough. Still they are all completed and have arrived back safely.

I’ve been trying to guest post more on other bloggers sites instead of just posting my ramblings on here. One of the questions with a Q&A post I completed this week was about favourite films. No sooner had I completed the Q&A and emailed it off, than I was itching to watch my favourite films.

So I’ve been watching The Wedding Date and Sweet Home Alabama in the background on an evening whilst I work. Thankfully as I have seen them that many times I don’t need to keep an eye on the screen as I already know what is happening from the script.

Each of my children are chatterboxes (I have no idea where they get that from :-)). Piglet it would appear is also going to be a chatterbox. This week she has gone from her usual babbles to full-on rants. I would love to know what she is saying as she has such a forthright expression on her face.


After having the same theme on my blog for around two years I opted to give it a little refresh this week. Keeping my header and avatar as I still love these, however, I’ve had a play around with a new theme and layout – I hope you like it.


I’ve been wearing my staple mummy wardrobe of indigo jeans paired with a navy striped top this week. Whilst it may appear that I have just had the same clothes on all week, my wardrobe is filled with similar tops and jeans so there is a subtle difference each day. I did manage to pop into H&M whilst I was in London this week, however, apart from eyeing up yet another stripy top I left with nothing… so disappointing.


I was back in London on Thursday for the launch of the iCandy Orange pushchair: Absolutely futureproof. The latest addition to the iconic iCandy range is promised to be #absolutelyfutureproof. The iCandy Orange goes from single to double or single with integrated buggy board. The launch was absolutely amazing and I now have serious pushchair envy. Available from March, I can see this being on many parents-to-be wishlists.

    Oh wow – I have some buggy envy – which is silly because (a) I already have an Icandy Apple and (b) it’s in the garage because all my kids are walking most places!! It does look very pretty, and orange – I had that colour on my first Icandy but then needed a new flavour pack and they’d stopped doing it so we had to change to blue.

    You have my sympathies, I have one chatterbox child and that’s quite enough! I don’t envy you with form filling, it’s just so tedious and boring isn’t it?!

    I love our iCandy BUT my son has now outgrown it. We’re in desperate need of a stroller, but I’m trying to hold out as long as possible, rather than forking out. Love the new blog theme. How exciting that all your passports have arrived, must make it feel more real now! Enjoy your weekend xx

    That stroller looks fantastic especially if you are extending your family. It’s such a great feeling when you’ve got the passports all ready and the holiday’s not far away.#littleloves

    Such a busy week for you and so grateful that you took time out of your week to pop into hospital to visit JB and I, it really made our day. We hope you have an AMAZING time in Disneyland Paris #notjealousatall 😉

    DVDs – you picked two of my favourites!!!

  • RachelSwirl February 6, 2017 at 12:24 am

    I love the new theme and layout, I so need to think about a new header.

  • Jess February 6, 2017 at 9:23 am

    Great picks for your films, both are some of my favourites as well. The new theme and layout looks great 🙂 #littleloves

    Busy, busy, busy. Ah, the passport stack resembles mine (just a little slimmer!) but oh my, what a small fortune for those little books!

    How exciting for Disneyland Paris trip we are dying to go. That icandy is amazing. I loved ours and the fact we don’t need a boogy board connected anymore is fab. Love the colors. Those are great movies it’s nice to just chill and watch a good film haven’t done it in a while. We are hooked on netflix box sets. lol Hope you had a good weekend. #littleloves

    SO jealous of your Disney trip! We went in October last year and loved it, we’ll definitely be going again. There is so much to do and see.
    Love that iCandy. There’s way more cool and stylish stuff for mums and babies these days compared to when I had my eldest! xx
