A new rug, A Sunny Sunday & Early starts #LittleLoves

life as our little family

Last weekend was blooming lovely. Some time spent with my boy and then a lovely sunny Sunday spent as a family. It was one of those weekends filled with lazy starts, little jobs like picking out a new rug and some accessories for our morning room followed by long walks and park fun. Simple pleasures really. I love weekends like that, when they don’t feel rushed and you wake on a Monday morning feeling refreshed and ready for the week ahead. This week has been filled with early starts and some little achievements for Lil G at school and swimming. I am ending the week feeling very proud of our gorgeous boy.

And here are this week’s little loves…


I do have a new book on my kindle to move on to but for now I am still working through my Red Magazine. Is it just me who is excited for black tights, boots and layers?

Mr H stumbled across this series, I think there were less than 10 episodes. Really gripping story line which had some twists and turns a long the way leaving us a little unsure as to which way the verdict would go. A must watch if you haven’t already.


And lets not forget the return of Cold Feet. Blooming brilliant and it took me right back to when I was in my early twenties. Such a great series, are you a fan?


I’ve heard some old classics on the radio this week which had me toe tapping and embarrassingly singing along at the traffic lights, why is it someone always spots you when you are midway through a blooming great song? Stevie Wonder’s part-time lover and Gloria Estefan’s Rhythm is gonna get ya are my songs of the week.


Pancakes on Sunday. The perfect breakfast for the weekend, with lashing of maple syrup, the only thing missing was some streaky bacon. Next time…

Last weekend the sun shone which if truth be told made me really happy, my sun tan is disappearing fast and it feels nice to be able to continue wearing my off the shoulder tops. I have literally lived in these type of tops all summer. I do hope the dungaree look stays throughout the seasons as I love them too!

And lastly…

I am off to a Spa day tomorrow with a really close friend. Boy am I looking forward to the day, girly conversation, a facial and relaxing by the pool. It’s going to be heavenly. I know I will miss by boys but already they are enjoying planning a boys day and I am sure they will have a lot of fun. All the more reason to look forward to our little family day on Sunday.

Have a lovely weekend little loves crew.

    We’ve just started watching The Night Of and I’m hooked. Unfortunately the mister has been working away and late this week so we’ve only managed the first episode but I can’t wait to watch more.
    I’m definitely a fan of AW clothes, as much as the hot sun is lovely, I do prefer boots and cosy layers!
    Have a blissful time relaxing at your spa day xx

    I’m going to miss my summer clothes too. This is the first year I’ve really embraced a proper summer wardrobe and have bought some lovely bits. It will be a shame to pack them away soon, but i guess that means i will just have to go and buy some new Autumn clothes – and that’s no bad thing! #LittleLoves

      Mr H is pretty good in the kitchen. I think you have to just go with what suits you. What about a dungaree dress instead? x

    You have a morning room? You are far too posh for me! By the way I still chuckle every time I see my childhood china on your blog! 🙂

    Absolutely love love your off the shoulder tops. I try to pull them off they drive me crazy but I love the look of them so I let them drive me crazy. Hope the sun stays I am losing my sun tan so fast too. So sad as I refuse to fake and bake but hate how ill I look in pale faced winter. lol Glad you had a great time at the park. I am behind on everything this week. I wrote my little loves post and than forgot to link up so now I am playing catch up. OOPs so late. But here I am. Glad all is well.
