It has been a week of work for Mr H and I whilst Lil G has split his time between Care Club and Nanny’s. He’s coped with it much better than he did in October. He makes me so proud. I won’t lie, I am already looking forward to be being off with him at Easter. I’m finding the school holidays a difficult one to get my head around. Having to split our holidays feels so hard. Thankfully we are all off together at Easter.
And here is our little loves of the week gone by…
I’m still working my way through Strictly Between Us by Jane Fallon, but I did pick up this months Vogue and Hello Fashion midweek which really made me smile. I am seriously in need of a HUGE shopping spree. This year the styles are right up my street, floaty tops, maxi dresses, 90’s slip dresses and sexy shoes. I am beyond excited to see the temperatures rise a little.
I am rather proud of my Valentines creations for my boys on Sunday. Mr H isn’t one to bother with the day but as he spent most of the weekend studying I thought I’d treat him to a good breakfast to set him up for the day. Mr H has been making some scrummy meals from our hello fresh box this week too. And here is what we’ve had…
We watched two movies at the weekend, I’m quite surprised we managed to fit them both in. Jersey Boys was my favourite. And then Southpaw which was also a really good watch, Mr H’s favourite. If you loved the rise & fall of Rocky you will love this too. We also watched the first episode of the Walking Dead, WHAT? What an opening scene. And how many lives does Glenn have?
I couldn’t help but download some of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons tracks to my Spotify playlist after watching the film. How good was the music back then? I’m not sure there has been a genre like it since. The style, the vibe. Such easy listening. Feel good music that most people enjoy. Some modern artists are marmite to me.
Mr H surprised me with a little date night on Saturday. We went out for a few drinks. Can you believe I’ve never tried Gin? I’m not really a fan of bitter drinks so the bar man kindly recommended a Poppy’s Gin with grapefruit, pomegranate & pink lemonade. Ooh it was delicious and got me sloshed on only two! I’m such a cheap date.
In terms of what I wore, a little dungaree dress and red lips for my date night, my Zara floral midi dress and cardigan for a little valentines date with Lil G and he wore his new monkey jumper from M&S. He’s really enjoying picking out his own clothes lately. Such a cutie and he has great taste.
It’s a quiet one for us again this weekend as we have two rather big night outs planned in the coming weeks. I’m also unwell with a gastric infection so I don’t really fancy moving much further than my bed or sofa. This is day three of feeling unwell so hopefully it’ll pass quickly now I have antibiotics.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
