I’m a bit delayed with Little Loves this week. The post was ready to publish on Friday but for some unknown reason, it’s been sat in my drafts (That unknow reason is blatantly because I forgot to click the button that says ‘publish’). I feel like I’m permanently chasing my tail at the moment as if I’m constantly playing catch up. It’s exhausting and by the time the kids are asleep of an evening I’m feeling ready for bed too.
But hey that’s life, isn’t it? And I need to make the most of it because Lord knows, when January rolls in I’ll probably be moaning about not having enough to do.
Here’s this week’s Little Loves:
This is where I admit to being the worlds slowest reader. If it’s not a book that will help with my work or personal growth, then I will take forever to read it. For example – I have been reading Julie & Julia on Kindle for the past two and a half years. I have now reached the final chapter, and I think I might actually finish it sometime in 2018.
But, my main read this year has been Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I started it back in March, and I have only now made to the final third of the book.
I was starting to get frustrated at myself for not making the time to read, so this past two weeks I have made a point of reading the book while I’m eating breakfast.
I am determined to finish it by Christmas.
Or rather ‘Didn’t watch’. M and I headed to Norwich last Saturday for a Mummy / Son day and went to the cinema to see the Lego Ninjago movie. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) the film broke down shortly after it started and they couldn’t fix it so they ended up refunding us, and we ended up going to Pizza Hut instead.
We are just coming to the end of the final season of Breaking Bad. It’s the second time we’ve watched it so I know what is coming up in the next episode and I know it’s going to be a hard watch. I still think it’s the best tv series made in recent years.
I went on a bit of a charity shop spree on Thursday and came away with an ace pair of flared jeans (I love a flared jean but nowhere seems to do them anymore!), a red shirt and a short-sleeved black jumper, all for under a tenner.
…A dent in the Christmas shopping. Only a small dent though, there’s still a lot to do.
Hit by the Sugarcubes. It popped up on one of my Spotify playlists earlier this week. I had forgotten just how much I loved that song when it was first released and I’ve been on a bit of a Sugarcubes kick ever since listening to it.
And I’ve just realised that the song is 26 years old. And now I feel very old. Oh well.
