Star Trek, Karen O, and Eleanor Oliphant – Little Loves

Star Trek, Karen O, and Eleanor Oliphant – Little Loves

Oh, hello there! It’s been a couple of weeks since I last published or joined in with Little Loves and I’ve really missed it! So, here are my Little Loves for this week…


I’m still reading the Harry Potter series but have decided to break it up a bit, and read something different in between each book. I have seen Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine mentioned so many times recently, but it was my friend Hannah’s review that convinced me to buy the book. I’ve just started reading it so I can’t comment on it too much – but I’m already utterly engrossed in it. 


Hi, my name is Catherine… and I am a Trekkie. There, I’ve admitted it. I’m a Star Trek geek. I have always loved it, so was very keen to watch the new series on Netflix. 7

And I’m not sure if I like it or not.

I really like the story arc – it’s clever – but I’m not completely sold on some of the main characters. I feel like I need to watch a few more episodes before I make a final decision on it. 


I’ve been listening to Yo! My Saint by Karen O and Michael Kiwanuka a lot this week. It’s not a musical collaboration that I would have ever considered but they go really well with each other.


I’ve been back on Slimming World for the last few weeks and have been enjoying it far more this time around. My in-laws came to visit last weekend and I was determined to stay on plan as much as possible (to allow for a couple of glasses of synful wine). I always love cooking a roast dinner whenever they come to visit and decided to try the Peppered leg of lamb with saffron potatoes from the new Slimming World “Comfort Collection” recipe book. It was soooo good! I absolutely recommend it if you are doing SW and are looking for a brilliant (and syn free!) roast!


Jumpers, gloves and woolly hats! It’s been a bit brrrrr this week, hasn’t it? I’m looking forward to Spring making an appearance soon.


It’s half term holiday’s here next week and we don’t have a great deal planned – maybe a couple of days out and about, but I think we are all really looking forward to just getting some much-needed downtime at home. 

Have a great weekend!

    I’ve seen so many people recommending that book, it would appear I need to add it to my list. Have a great half-term break. #littleloves

    Yay for half term! As a teacher (and mummy) I’m so ready for this week, slower pace and time spent with my boy. Seems like everyone is reading Eleanor Oliphant this week, must pick it up on my next supermarket visit! Enjoy your weekend xx

    I hadn’t heard of Elinor Oliphant before this weeks #LittleLoves but so many people are reading it i’m starting to think I am going to have to add it to my reading list 🙂
