Reflective Mood, London Dungeons and The Gruffalo’s Child#LittleLoves

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…

Read

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.

Watched

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.

Heard

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.

Made

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.

Wore

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.

Lastly

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).

    Awesome music choice! Dawson’s Creek was my fave show growing up and the soundtrack is cracking.

    I feel the same about blogging sometimes! This is also the second time someone’s mentioned Dawson’s Creek this week, I’m going to have to dig it out!

    Got to love Dawson’s Creek! I must look out the soundtrack and see if it’s on Spotify.
    It’s so lovely that you’re so involved with your children’s school, it sounds like you really enjoy it too.
    Have a great week! x
