I’ve been in quite a reflective mood this week, prompted by a visit to London which I was asked questions about my blog. How I started it, why I blog, what I blog about etc. It made me think back to the good old days when blogging was much simpler. I simply wrote about what I wanted, in the way I wanted and pressed publish. Whereas now there is so much more that goes into creating a blog post and I guess I miss those simpler days.
Realistically, I need to get over myself, suck it up and get on with things.
This week’s #LittleLoves…
When Roo was younger I would pop into her infant school and help out with listening to the children read. As well as occasionally reading to the children during workshops etc. It was a great way to help out in the school and encourage the other children who might be able to read each day with a parent or family member. Whilst I was in the children’s school this week, Tigger and I had finished the activities so we grabbed a book and I began to read him the story, suddenly I was joined by more and more children. I suddenly realised that I missed that interaction and I really should see about getting my DBS check completed for their school so I can possibly help out more.
Nothing of any note this week. Between deadlines to meet and my sinuses playing me up, I haven’t really sat down to watch anything – Unless you count The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo’s Child and Room On The Broom with Piglet in the afternoons.
With little time to really sit down and watch anything this week, I have been making the most of the time I have music playing in the background. After a crisis of confidence this week I have returned to music that makes me think of carefree days – with the Dawson’s Creek soundtrack being the perfect starting point.
Tigger had a math’s workshop at school this week, which I was fortunate to attend (the bonus of being a stay at home mum). During the workshop, we worked together to measure sticks and leaves, weigh fruit and create colour pattern pasta chains.
I’m not a huge fan of character clothing for Piglet, she seems to suit prints and patterns more. However, when I spotted the Gruffalo’s Child collection within my local Sainsbury’s during the 25% offer recently I had to get some items for her. This is the Gruffalo’s Child 2-Piece Set which is simply adorable and as it is one of her favourite things to watch she is very happy to wear it.
At the weekend I managed to kidnap one of Roo’s friends and her mum before heading off to London for the day. With a hot date with the new Descendants 2 movie as well as a trip to the London Dungeons (polar opposites I appreciate, but we did have so much fun).
