It’s finally Friday. This week has dragged on a bit and I’ve been desperate to get to the end of it. But now Friday is finally here and A breaks up from school today! Until the past six weeks I always thought that the school holidays came around so blummin’ quickly, and it always felt like we had only just gone back to nursery when she was home al the time again – not that I don’t want to spend time with my lovely daughter – but it’s so hard to keep up with work when she’s off.
Now however, I can’t bloody wait – she’s ready and I’m ready. I’m hating the school run in the mornings at the moment because I’m so damn tired, and then I have to pick her up roughly five minutes after she’s started, and then when I do she’s a grumpy so-and-so as she’s so tired. I’m looking forward to us doing some fun stuff together next week.
So yes, I’m joining all of you who have always been all ‘hallelujah it’s the school holidays!’, and I’m no longer wondering what on earth you are talking about.
We will be seeing friends tomorrow for their baby girls’ first birthday, which will be lovely, and then hopefully the rest will be a lazy weekend. Although saying that, I’ll still have shit loads of housework and blog work to do. A girl can dream, right.
Welcome to this weeks Little Loves!
I’m actually reading a real life paper book at the moment – The Girl on the Train. I read quite a bit of it whilst I was actually on a train last week. I love reading an actual book rather than something on my kindle or phone, but I regret it as soon as I want to read my book somewhere else. So on Wednesday I went to London for a few hours with a big fat book in my bag, because I really wanted to be able to read it on the train.
I haven’t read loads of it yet but I’m enjoying it so far. It hasn’t gripped me like I thought it might due to all the hype, but it’s quite interesting.
I’ve watched a ton more Gilmore girls since my last Little Loves and I’m now on the last series which completely sucks. You know that battle when you love something so much you just don’t want to stop watching it but at the same time you don’t want to get to the end of it either? I’m so flipping glad they’re making some more.
Lots of thick jumpers and cardigans suddenly! It’s suddenly gone freezing clold hasn’t it? It seemed to happen so quickly that I ended up doing the school run in a thin cardigan when it was blowing a gale. I probably looked a bit stupid.
I love it when it’s the time of year to start wearing thick, cosy knits and snuggling up with a blanket at night – although I’m not quite at that point yet. I’m sick of the rain though. My hair cannot handle moisture.
I have this Chunky Rib Cardigan from ASOS, and it is sooo soft and snuggly.
I also ordered this Oysho Bunny Ear Zip up Sweatshirt, because, well, bunny ears. But I think I’ll probably send it back as it’s a bit loose over the body.
On the way back from the school run the other day I heard this blast from the past…
I bloody love hearing random old songs on the radio, that take me straight back to a different time.
I’ve also heard Ariel singing ‘Part of Your World’ a lot. We were sent the lovely doll to review, and I’ve been singing that song ever since.
Decisions, beds, lists – and very little else.
Here Ava’s bed (that I made), with her pretty new quilt on it from Ollie and Leila.
Is it time for wine yet???
