Line of Duty, Nigel and Easter Bonnets #LittleLoves

I had a lovely weekend staying with friends and their two boys up in the North East. We spent a long time catching up and visited an aquarium. They’ve recently moved into a house they did up from scratch so it was great for inspiration for our new house. I also visited another friend this… Continue reading Line of Duty, Nigel and Easter Bonnets #LittleLoves

Beauty and the Beast, Small Great Things (again) and a Teacher Just Like You #LittleLoves

Unlike last week when I felt like there’d only been 5 minutes between Little Loves posts, this week felt like such a long one. I had a really lovely day in Birmingham on Saturday  with my friend Sarah, a little bit of shopping, quite a bit of food and a whole load of catching up.… Continue reading Beauty and the Beast, Small Great Things (again) and a Teacher Just Like You #LittleLoves

Vinegar Girl, Daffodils and Feeling Grateful #LittleLoves

I’m  hoping this is the last time I’ll say this for a while, but last weekend was yet another weekend of jobs around the house! Then evenings this week were also taken up with some last minute cleaning before the house was photographed yesterday to go on the market today.

A Course, a Reading Corner and a Visit From My Sister #LittleLoves

Last weekend was yet another one of house organising and not much else. Why is it that once you start you just find more and more that needs doing! I’m starting to think its never ending.

Sherlock, Gym Kit and The Little Book of Hygge #LittleLoves

The week at work has been steady and much more enjoyable than last week too. Its nice to be reflecting on the little things… Continue reading Sherlock, Gym Kit and The Little Book of Hygge #LittleLoves

We met them at the Christmas Markets (another off my Festive Bucket List!) then headed to Meadowhall for a spot of Christmas shopping.

Christmas Cupcakes, Chatsworth House and a Stressful Week #LittleLoves

What. A. Week. This week has been a tough one. Leaving the house at 7am and not returning until 7.30pm. Observations, inspections, twilight training, two evening staff meetings and decisions from management that have made me really rather cross. It has been so stressful and has felt so long and I’m literally exhausted and feeling over worked… Continue reading Christmas Cupcakes, Chatsworth House and a Stressful Week #LittleLoves

The Elephant in the Mirror, Dinosaurs and Winter Wonderland #LittleLoves

After work last Friday we drove down to London to stay with Tom’s sister and her husband. We had a lovely day walking along Portobello Road, through Kensington gardens and to Hyde Park. We went to Winter Wonderland which was really lovely and got us  in the festive spirit, so much so that we may have bought our Christmas tree… Continue reading The Elephant in the Mirror, Dinosaurs and Winter Wonderland #LittleLoves

This week has felt really long again, but my class are loving our new Dinosaurs topic and have… Continue reading The Hateful Eight, a Homer Cake and a Christmas Jumper #LittleLoves
