What a week! It’s been so busy, despite having not done much at all. It’s been our half-term holiday week, and I normally try to scale back my work slightly so I can spend time with the kids. For some reason, however, I have been busier than ever work-wise – which I am absolutely not complaining about, in fact it’s brilliant.
I have found myself having to juggle work and the children a bit more than I was expecting, but we have made it to Friday reasonably unscathed, and are looking forward to a nice weekend.
Here’s this week’s Little Loves
It was our wedding anniversary a few weeks ago and Rob bought me the new Nigella Lawson cookbook ‘At My Table’ to add to my collection. I finally got round to having a flick through last weekend. There are some really lovely looking recipes in the book, and I can’t wait to try a few out over the coming weeks.
Sing. Sing has been THE movie of the half-term holiday.
My new watch from Awemix Watches. They are a local company who donate 20% of the profits from each sale to charity. They have two designs, with each design aimed at a specific cause – breast cancer care and wildlife & conservation.
The watch I have been wearing is the one supporting breast cancer charities. Keeping Abreast – Breast Cancer Reconstruction Support is the current recipient of the breast cancer charity donations, and the Norfolk Wildlife Trust benefits from the Wildlife & Conservation donations.
Awemix Watches also regularly ask their social community to nominate new charities to receive donations. I have teamed up with Awemix Watches to host a giveaway of one watch of the winners choosing. If you would like to enter, and nominate a breast cancer support or wildlife & conservation charity that you think deserve to be Awemix’s new charity partner then head down to the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of this post. Good luck!
I have a big smile on my face after finally making the decision on which style of new sofa to have for our living room. If you happened to see my Instagram stories last week you’ll know that I was Little Miss Indecisive when it came to choosing.
I made a start on my Christmas Bullet Journal last week and finally finished putting it together a couple of days ago. I used my bullet journal for Christmas planning last year and it helped a lot (ie, I hadn’t turned into the Grinch by Christmas Eve) so I’m hoping that this year will be the same.
Earlier this week I put together a Spotify playlist for Halloween featuring the spooky choices of lots of different bloggers. It’s really great fun if you want to have a listen.
One song from the playlist – New Fang by Them Crooked Vultures – has been on heavy rotation this week after I rekindled my love for it. I shall end this post with the live version performed in the Radio 1 Live Lounge a few years ago. Rock on!
