Welcome to this weeks Little Loves!
I have read very little this week, I’ve hardly even read any blog posts. Ava was poorly for days and missed nursery, and I’ve had no time to do anything, plus her Dad was away for two nights so I was doing it all by myself. I did however read that the Oxford Dictionaries word of the year for 2015 is an actual emoji – the crying with laughter one – what the actual f**k?! How can an emoji be a word of the year. It’s not a word. It’s not. I think I’m quite cross about it. Plus that emoji for some reason annoys the hell out of me. I still use it occasionally though, sometimes it’s needed.
Ooh, I have really wanted to read some magazines this week, and stupidly bought a few, and then I never let myself just sit down and relax with them. I’m working on my blog every night at the moment and I’m quite happy doing that, and it’s paying off, but I really do need to make myself take some time to get away from the laptop and relax.
I couldn’t resist buying Glamour magazine, with Tanya Burr on the front – I always find it really interesting when bloggers and vloggers are featured in magazines, but I think the cover of Glamour is a pretty big thing! I know a lot of non-bloggers think it’s all a bit weird and ‘why are they even famous?’, but they’ve worked hard at something and made a success of it, and become well-known because of it – what’s wrong with that? Blogging and vlogging certainly isn’t as easy as it looks, so it’s not like they haven’t worked hard for it.
Anyyyyway… I was also very happy to win a facebook competition to win a years subscription to the parenting and lifestyle blogging magazine ‘Oh Lilla‘! I never win anything (says everyone every time they win something)! I’ve only had chance to have a little flick through my first issue so far – but it looks really lovely and I’m very pleased to have won!
Very, very little. I watched the news for the first time in a long time after what happened in Paris.
Ava has been poorly over the weekend and for some of this week with a horrible sickness bug, and so we have not really gone anywhere or done anything. So, I have mostly been wearing leggings and a baggy jumper, or some days even just my pyjamas. I don’t think I need to be dressed up to clean up sick do I?
Last week I did have my hair cut. I think it probably looks better slightly longer, but every time I get my hair cut I always want it to be a bit different so I always do stupid things like get it cut shorter than I want it. I’m really enjoying having shorter hair though. It feels a lot cooler, and I think it suits me better than when it’s long; long hair drags me down.
I also did the typical ‘mummy blogger’ thing, and put my daughter in this… (it says blogger not logger, honest!)….
Everyone seems to be talking about Justin Bieber at the moment (or maybe I just have really bad friends ;); it’s like it’s becoming cooler to like him something. Or so uncool, it’s cool maybe? Not that there’s anything wrong with liking whatever the hell you want, obvs. And he is getting hotter; not that that’s relevant of course, except that it obviously is.
Anyway, I have actually listened to a couple of his songs recently, and they’re not terrible. I think they’re growing on me in fact. Is it too late to say sorry…..? It is? What do you mean?
Naff all! (I think that’s the first time I’m ever said that. Sometimes on this blog I think maybe I overshare with silly little bits of information that you just don’t need to know – I’m afraid that’s just me though, so….). I made dinner, I made A LOT of cups of tea to keep myself alive and plodding along, and I made a lot of lists that do not have enough crossings out on them. It’s been a fun week!
My little family has been invited to Cadbury World on Sunday (why is it so hard not to say Cadbury’s World?!) for a Christmassy day, and I’m pretty excited. Ava is going to love it so much – Santa and chocolate?! What else could be better? When I told her we were going and what we would be doing she said ‘Can we go tomorrow?’, and then every day since she keeps asking if it is Christmas yet – but she means the event!
I’m also dead excited because a couple of other bloggers that I have become friends with recently are going with their families too, so I get to meet them! They will actually be the first ever bloggers I meet! Which is crazy really, because I feel like I know some people so well and I feel like I have met them.
P.S Totally was listening (and jigging about) to ‘Sorry’ whilst I was writing this. Not sorry.
I hope you have had a good week and have had lots of time to hold your families close.
