Trains, Tissues and Family Time #LittleLoves

April 7, 2017

There is a big part of me that is pleased that the children don’t go back to school for at least another week. I have no idea where this first week has gone. Lost in an array of days out and catching up on tasks at home I don’t feel as though we have stopped. Next week doesn’t look any quieter either, so I have to hope for a quiet Easter weekend instead.


Do train timetables count? I hope so, as I think that is the only thing that I have managed to read this week. We visited the North Norfolk Railway at the weekend, so I’ve been busy studying which train we would need from Norwich to Sheringham.


Roo and I finally managed to have a girlie date at the cinema watching Beauty and the Beast. I feel as though everyone else had seen it before us but thankfully had managed to keep away from any spoilers to the film (although it is very similar to the animated version). I have to confess to us both sobbing our hearts out at the storyline, despite knowing what was going to happen we couldn’t help but shed a tear or two. I’m not sure if it was because it was live-action we could relate to it more or not but we should have packed tissues.


With lots of travelling completed this week, it has been down to our trusty iPod in the car to get us through the miles. With Mr. Boo concentrating on the road I was luckily enough to be left in charge of the music selection. So I thought I’d take us back to when we left school and through the early years of our dating – Now 40 through to Now 50 on random selection… Fantastic!


I’m in the middle of painting our new wheelie bin cover in a beautiful forget me not blue. It’s quite fiddly and time-consuming but I think it will look fab once it is completed.


The weather at the moment doesn’t know what to do with itself. One minute it is warm and sunny, and the next it has clouded over and is freezing cold. So I’ve been living in my navy cardigans this week, perfect for slipping over a short-sleeved top.


It is very rare that we all get a week off together, so we have been making the most of having Mr. Boo with us for the first week of the holidays. With lots of trips, driving, and hotels I’m sure that he will be pleased to get back to work tomorrow. However, we are going to miss him for the rest of the holidays.

    The North Norflk railways is on our list of things to do when we visit grandma (she’s right next to it!) but never manage to get round to it! I love a little listen of the Now albums, good for you!

    Ahhh so lovely you got a weekend away together and got to make some grand family memories and adventures. I love it. Cbeebsies looks great my two would love it even though we have never watched it on tv looks ace. I will have to put it on my list to do with the kids sometime. Apologies if I missed last weeks post I am catching up with them today too. Happy weekend and Happy Easter! #littleloves

    Glad you have had some time together – hoping my hub gets a few days off over bank holiday!
    I just loved Beauty and the Beast. I really want to see it again! #littleloves

    What a cute little train station, my little one loves going on the line down in Kent near my mum. He’d be rather jealous of your trip to Cbeebies land too! Have a great week!

    Sounds like a fantastic week. I must get to the cinema with CM to see Beauty and the Beast. I hope the weather is a constant sunny for you this week.

    It sounds like you had a lovely first week full of family time! xx@

    We were meant to go on the train to Sheringham when we visited Norfolk, it’s meant to be lovely! I’m still yet to see Beauty and the Beast, I’ll probably have to wait until it’s released on DVD now 🙁 xx
