Getting Crafty, A Bit Of Sparkle and Pretty Pretty Wallpaper #LittleLoves

Oh, the past week has been a good week.  You know one of those weeks when almost everything happens as it should and there are lots of things to make you smile.  Maybe it’s something to do with the gorgeous weather we’ve been having, but there’s been lots to be happy about.

The in-laws asked if they could have O for a sleepover last Sunday so we may have taken the opportunity to go for a spot of child-free shopping which may have involved a trip to the pub on the way home.  A glass of Pinot in the sunshine without having to keep an eye out for a cheeky 3 year old, heaven!

Anyways, without further ado lets look at the highlights.


In a vague attempt to be more crafty I bought O a Mister Maker magazine and we have been reading and trying out some of the suggestions in it. If I ever wanted confirmation that I am lacking in artistic skills, this has proved it.

It may have fallen apart minutes after the photo was taken but we had a lovely afternoon making things (the others were too shoddy to even photo!)


The downside of the lovely weather is that I had packed most of my summer gear away so I’m trying to wear the cooler items of my Autumn wardrobe.  Any excuse to wear a sparkly Breton.


You know when you hear a song that you had completely forgotten has existed, but it instantly takes you back to a place and time.  I heard this song this week and was transported to a dodgy club in Hull in my uni days and couldn’t help but smile.  Us students loved it at the time (we were so cool!).


I made Slimming World raspberry and chocolate tiramisu on Friday, after having the biggest Slimming World burger for dinner.  I’m still a bit amazed how much you can eat and still lose weight, definitely the diet for me.

And Lastly…

The decorators were put back a week but the wallpaper is finally up and I am in love with it.  Just so pretty.

Happy Friday, hope you have a lovely weekend. xx

    LOVE the wallpaper, it’s beautiful!
    My girls get really excited when they get magazines but they never seem to make anything from them, which I find odd. Though N now gets pre-teen girls magazines and it’s all about fashion and popstars these days!!
    Adore that Boden top, you can’t go wrong with Breton stripes AND sparkles.
    Enjoy the weekend lovely xx

    I love your choice of wallpaper, it’s so pretty. I am also very jealous of your Boden top, it is out of stock at the moment and I keep seeing it pop up everywhere! Hope next week is as great as this one has been x
