#LittleLoves is a linky held over at But Why Mummy Why. I thought it would be fun to join in with this once a week. The idea behind the posts is that they are a weekly chance to remember the little things you’ve loved that join up to make your week. You don’t need to be a parenting blogger to join in, all bloggers are welcome!
So, what have we been up to?
I read Summer at Shell Cottage by Lucy Diamond this week and really enjoyed it. Her books are such light, easy reads – perfect for the Summer!
I am now a few chapters in to Honor’s Knight by Rachel Bach, the second in the Paradox trilogy – which is completely different! I really enjoyed Fortune’s Pawn, so am looking forward to getting stuck into this one.
I read this fantastic post from Sian over at Potty Mouthed Mummy, where she compared Blogging to Game of Thrones. Now, I haven’t actually watched Game of Thrones, but have caught glimpses as my husband loves it – and this post really made me laugh!
Also, I have been approved as a new member of the Curtis Brown Book Group – which I’m really excited about. From July until the end of the year, I get to review one book per month pre-publication and chat to you guys about it.
After tweeting asking for recommendations for Netflix, my lovely friend Charlotte told me about Orphan Black. I am now hooked. I want to watch it all the time, but can’t because well, life. So, if you’re wondering whether you should watch it….do it, now.
Oh, and I can’t not add this here. Ruby Rose = LOVE. Girl Crush? Yes! Do I care? No. I just think this video is so powerful.
Lots of food for Parker!
I had a major cooking sesh and made Pasta with Butternut Squash, Tomatoes & Cheese, Broccoli and Cauliflower with Cheese Sauce and Lamb Casserole! All prepped and frozen, ready for when I go back to work in a couple of weeks.
Nothing to add here unfortunately. I did get my eyebrows done, does that count? First time in ages, just a wax and tint 😉
I’m getting a little anxious about returning to work now. I head back on the 13th July, which is our school show week (I must be mad!). I’m also a little annoyed (not sure if that is the right word..) that an ex sixth former – who is studying dance at University – has been called in to do my job. Now, I know that I am not there to do it (choreographing the summer production) but I just don’t want this to be a regular occurrence when I am back part-time. I guess after 5+ years of working my butt off to get qualified, I now feel a little ‘put out’ – would you feel the same? Or am I just being silly?
Ah well, we shall see what happens. Watch this space!
Enjoy your weekend!
