Little Loves 2/52

Back to normality this week! Although the Christmas break was lovely it it nice to get back to a bit of routine.

Read Honestly, not a lot. I’ve not even managed to pick my book up this week.  Must do better!

Watched It’s been a good week for TV hasn’t it? Monday kicked off with Broadchurch (how good was it?), and we’ve also been watching Silent Witness and The Undateables. I’ve watched the series start of The 100 (not hubby’s cup of tea) and I have the new series of Revenge on Sky+ which I’m saving for Saturday afternoon when O has his nap. I’m actually a little bit giddy to watch Revenge, can’t wait! xx

Heard Because I am super cool I quite often listen to Smooth FM on the way to work.  I do like the chilled out music, which is very much needed at the minute as there are roadworks on my route through town which is sometimes doubling the journey time.  Anyway, this week they played Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On.  Do you remember that song was played everywhere in 1997?  I was immediately taken back to being a 17 year old with the biggest crush ever on Leonardo Di Caprio, and it has made me want to watch Titanic again too!

Made I’m failing in this category a bit too, so please forgive the tenuous links.

I made some real toast soldiers!  I bought O a little egg cup and soldier cutter set for Christmas  and we tried it out for the first time

And we made our first school run.  Over the next 8 years or so we are going to make the journey more times than I will be able to count but it felt quite special walking hand in hand to pre-school and then back home again a few hours later.

Wore Quirky prints courtesy of Boden sale.

I was a little bit unsure of this dress but as it was a total bargain I decided to risk it. I’m glad I did, I love it and had quite a few compliments when I wore it to work this week.

And lastly…

    Love your quote at the end. Very inspiring and something we really need to hold on to 🙂

    Broadchurch was so good wasn’t it! Although that I read that some people struggled to understand David Tennant and had to have the subtitles on….I personally could understand him and thought he was excellent. I think he must be one of my fave actors.

    Egg and soldiers are cute and my little ones would love them (so would I ;-))

    Have a good week.

    You’ve inspired me. I’m off to boil some eggs (although no cool soldiers like yours)!
    It’s a lovely quote, very apt for me at the moment. #littleloves

    I have been known to listen to a bit of Smooth myself. I try not to though because it always makes me want to sing, and I am certainly no Celine! Love the proper soldiers – how sweet! I hope O enjoyed pre-school and yes, never give up on your dreams (although sometimes they change – and that’s okay too) xx

I can’t read any comments as we have not watched broadchurch yet…it’s recorded so will watch tonight! I used to listen to smooth alit when we lived in the UK. Love the quote…..we live by trying never to have regrets, so I suppose very similar!! Hope you have a fab weekend xxxx

Literally everyone i know is raving about Broadchurch and i’m ashamed to say i’ve never seen it, where have i been hiding? xxx #LittleLoves
