Pride and Prejudice, Jamestown and Schools Out! #LittleLoves

July 21, 2017

I’ll be honest July can hurry up and do one. The children have been taking in turns to be ill this month. With Piglet taking over the reins this week. An out of hours doctors visit, a hospital admission and an emergency GP appointment all within one weekend – she has ensured that she has had her money’s worth from the NHS. So difficult to see her looking so poorly and so frightening just how quickly they can go downhill.


Pride and Prejudice has once again rescued me during the long hours of the night. I don’t think I will ever tire of the beautiful classic story. There is something so captivating about Mt Darcy and Miss Bennett’s love story. 

Although reading the book via an app on my phone made me realise just how much I wish I had a Kindle Paperwhite – adds to Christmas/Birthday wish list.


With many hours spent sitting on the living room floor with Piglet, I have managed to indulge in quite a bit of TV. Thankfully I haven’t had to sit through hours of Peppa Pig on repeat (silver lining). I’ve managed to rewatch Death Comes to Pemberley, finally start watching Jamestown and fall in love with the new Disney Beauty and the Beast film.


Nothing of any note really. I’ve had the radio or Spotify playing in the background as I have been catching up on chores around the house.


We had a big IKEA delivery on Saturday with the final pieces of furniture for the house. Included within this delivery was my utility room storage for all the laundry. Sad as it may be, I am so pleased to have everything organised in there. As a family of five we produce quite a bit of laundry so hopefully, this will make things easier to keep on top of things. 

Although I now have a new integrated washing machine on my wish list, as the one we have isn’t very big or powerful.


It might be the end of the school term but I have been getting ahead of myself and purchasing uniform ready for September. I don’t like to leave it until the last minute, so I have it all ready to be washed and labelled.


School is out today! I’m so excited for the weeks ahead with the children. Although Roo and Tigger will be visiting my mum for two weeks soon, I’m going to miss them so much.

    Oh, so sorry to hear about Piglet – I hope she is on the mend now!

    So sorry that your kids have been poorly, I hope that it’s all over and done with now and you have a healthy summer ahead of you.
    I’m so behind on Jamestown I must make some time to catch up on it all xx
