Lean In, Poussin and Vennart – Little Loves

What has happened with the weather this week? I’m sat here writing this Little Loves post and seriously considering turning the heating on. I’ve got my chunky jumper on and I’m starting to think I might have slept through July, August and September because this is surely October weather? Brrrr. 

But anyhew, here are my recent Little Loves…

Little Loves - read




I have started reading ‘Lean In’ by Sheryl Sandberg. When I say ‘started’ I mean I have only made it to page 16 so far. But, if ever there’s been a book that empowers you from the very start then it’s surely this one. 



Little Loves - watched




We are still watching Twin Peaks, and this current series is just getting stranger and stranger – in a good way though. This week’s episode was particularly WTF? It was like an even more intense Salvador Dalí / Luis Buñuel collaboration and it’s made me love David Lynch more than ever. However, that being said, this episode was so very intense that I am hoping the next one is just a little lighter. 



Little Loves - Wore




See aforementioned weather related jumper wearing scenario. Hopefully, some more seasonally appropriate clothing will be worn next week. 

Little Loves - Made




Rob and I don’t get the opportunity to go out for a  date night all that often, so on a Saturday night we take it in turns to cook for each other – but something a bit beyond the usual dinners we would have during the week. Last Saturday was my turn and I made poussin with harissa & preserved lemons from Sabrina Gayhour’s Persiana book. It was delicious but I didn’t think to take a photo until it was too late. 


Little Loves - Heard




It was Rob’s birthday a couple of weeks ago and one of his presents from me was the ‘Target ’15’ Live DVD by Vennart. Watching it made me want to listen to The Demon Joke album again, and it’s fair to say it’s been on heavy rotation since. It’s such a good album.


Little Loves - and lastly




We had plans for an evening visit to the beach to eat fish and chips this weekend, but eldest has come with a rotten bug so we are spending it curled up on the sofa watching movies instead. Which, to be honest, is my idea of a perfect weekend. Hope you all have a great weekend too.

    The weather has been up and down hasn’t it? Where has the sun gone!? Hope your eldest is feeling better? I hate bugs, I can cope with just about anything but sickness bugs is not what I signed up for! 😉 Hope you have had a lovely weekend xx

    I read Lean In a while back now and completely agree, it’s so empowering and inspiring.
    Love the idea of taking it in turns to cook for each other on Saturday night, I might have to give that a try. The recipe you did sounds delicious, harissa is one of my favourite flavours.
    Have a great week x

      Your comment went into my spam folder for some reason 🙁 I love harissa too, and would use it in food most days if I thought the kids would try it.
