It’s been a while since I shared a #LittleLoves post.  After it was changed from a weekly to a monthly link up I kind of lost my way.  Life is so hectic that I can barely recall what happened last week never mind what happened at the beginning of the month.  So what I’m trying to say is that I missed sharing a little snapshot of our lives each week.  And I’m hoping to start adding a #LittleLoves post up each week once again.… View Post

The Crown, Kiss The Rain and Barry Island #LittleLoves

This week Mr. Boo has been off with us and I can’t tell you how wonderful that is.  We miss him terribly when he is at work.  So family time is most welcomed when we get the chance of it.  I snapped the photo of us earlier this week as I was busy packing bits and pieces.  Whilst I could easily focus on the mess behind us, the garden bits visible through the patio doors etc.  Instead, I choose to focus on us.  A silly moment taken 15 seconds after he’d swept me up for a dance around the kitchen whilst the children were playing.… View Post

Flu, Period Dramas and Haircuts #LittleLoves

Flu, Period Dramas and Haircuts #LittleLoves

I’m a day late in sharing my usual #LittleLoves post with you this week.  Although if I’m honest I’m surprised that I’m only a day late.  The truth is that I’m on the slow recovery from flu, which hit me like a ton of bricks and has knocked me sideways.  Being a parent and being ill is never fun at the best of times but flu and the school holidays are not a good combination.  It has given me the time to regroup and reassess priorities in life and my workload.… View Post

Easter Holidays, Spotify in the car and family travels #LittleLoves

The Easter holidays are here and we are looking forward to lots of family days outs and activities.  In some ways, it doesn’t feel like five minutes since the last half term yet in another way it feels like it has been a long time since all the children were at home.  It’s been a busy week attempting to get things straight ready for the holidays.  I’m not quite there yet but the holidays are here so everything else will have to wait.… View Post

Renewed Energies, Mansfield Park, and Daddy’s Scarf #LittleLoves

I attacked this week armed with a to-do list and a calendar of school events, shopping trips and car repairs that needed to be completed.  Finally, I feel as though I’m back to work mode.  Making an effort to utilise my renewed energies and enthusiasm to clear the backlog of tasks.

This week has not been plain sailing though.  It has tested me in ways I’d rather wish it hadn’t.  And I’ve already muttered the words ‘it is February yet?’ on more than one occasion.  Alas, these things are sent to try us and try me they have.… View Post

Christmas, Elf Pyjamas and a Festive Birthday #LittleLoves

Christmas, Elf Pyjamas and a Festive Birthday #LittleLoves

Just like that we have reached the final #LittleLoves of the year.  I’m actually quite annoyed with myself that I wasn’t able to complete a whole year.  With my post falling by the wayside this month between the chaos of Christmas, school activities and family life.  Chasing my tail for at least the last month, I don’t know if I’m coming or going.  The New Year needs to see changes in lifestyle made, I cannot continue in the manner I have been.  A balance needs to be found, goals to be set and a different way of thinking.… View Post

Birthdays, #WWEButlins and Diary of a Wimpy Kid #LittleLoves

Thank the heavens it is Friday! It has been one of those weeks in the Boo Roo and Tigger Too household.  With an amazing family trip to Butlins Minehead for their #WWEButlins weekend.  Roo had the opportunity to celebrate her 11th birthday whilst we were there and she had such a wonderful weekend.  Heading home in time to celebrate Tigger’s 7th birthday (never a good idea to have birthdays three days apart).  After that it all went downhill, with all of us suffering in one way or another will illness, with Tigger being sent home from school on Thursday after being sick in his classroom (so sorry Miss M and Miss C).  Add into the mix technical issues with my laptop and blog, I have simply wanted to crawl back under the duvet and hide from the world.… View Post

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.  … View Post

Suddenly Monday, McDonalds Big Mac and Impromptu beach visits #LittleLoves

Suddenly Monday appears again 
Where was the weekend? 
I lost it again 

The above lyrics are from one of my favourite Melanie C songs – Suddenly Monday.  These few lines have been racing through my mind this week as the days have been ticking away.  Before I know it, it will be Monday again and not only will I have lost the weekend but the week previous to it. … View Post

High School, Organisation and #BlogOnXmas #LittleLoves

I’m sure that someone has sneaked a few extra days into this week.  Which in some ways is a good thing as it feels like I have been here, there and everywhere this week.  On the other hand, I just haven’t been feeling 100% so I’ve wished for bedtime to come around quicker more than once.  The big milestone this week has been going to look at a local high school for Roo.  Not quite sure I’m ready for her to move up to high school next year but I know that she is ready for the next challenge.

Guardians of the Galaxy, Dragon Puppets, and A Lost Tooth #LittleLoves

Friday once again and I have no idea where this week has gone. With a weekend full of trips into the city for a dragon puppet workshop with Norwich Puppet Theatre. They were awarded almost £5,000 from the Aviva Community Fund for their Voice of a Child work.  The children had a fantastic time and we just about managed to dodge the rain showers.  Followed by a family get together on Sunday to celebrate Mr. Boo’s birthday.  Everything after that is a blur of school runs, food shopping, and cleaning.

Victoria, Back To School and Wedding Anniversary #LittleLoves

The past week has provided me with both highs and lows.  If I’m honest the lows have really hit me hard and I’m ready for this week to be over.  With me almost writing off our family car after a lorry cut me up on a junction.  Thankfully I managed to swerve and smashed it up a curb – resulting in two shredded tyres.  So as someone who wears their heart on their sleeve, it has been an emotional week.  … View Post
